The Girls are going to Disney! A Nov. 2011 pretrip report. (Upd. 11/22 - we're home)

Hello all Welcome to my pretrip report. This is my second pretrip report on the Disboards - I really enjoyed doing my first one, it's fun to talk over all my trip planning because no one at home really gets it - which anyone reading this probably can relate to I hesitated to start this one though because I failed miserably at my actual trip report after our last trip - I was good for about half the trip and then never finished So, I'm going to be honest up front - I will not be doing a full trip report after our trip - I will come back and chat and give a summary - but that's about it. So - hopefully I'll have a few people to chat with on this report to help pass the time before we leave.

So the cast of characters for this trip:

Me and my daughter Maddie who is 8:


and my Mom:


My husband will not be joining us this trip. We have been to Disney 3 times in the last 6 years and he's enjoyed the trips, but he's good for awhile (I know, I don't get it either ) Maddie and I have been wanting to see the Christmas decorations, so he suggested a Mother/daughter trip. So I decided to really make it a Mother/daughter trip and ask my Mom to come. The 3 of us get along well - so it should be a great trip!

Our dates: 11/16 - 11/21. I wish it were longer, but I was trying to make it a shorter trip to keep from overdoing things for my Mom and this is a last minute trip for our budget this year - so I'm trying to minimize costs. So my challenge for planning this trip is to see what we want to see in 4 park days - but to not overdue it and exhaust everyone! Can that be done

We will be staying at Pop:

I'm hoping in building 4 lakeside:


We stayed there last time (October 2009) and it was perfect! Quiet, not to far from the buses or Everything Pop.

So I think I'll stop here for now - I hope a few people join along. Thanks for reading!

Chapter Links:
Arrival day and Pop pictures
First full park day 11/17 DHS
Are You Ready For Some Football
A few updates
Second full park day 11/18 MK & MVMCP
Third full park day 11/19 AK and DTD


Maddie's ride/attraction list for each park:

Well hello there

I'm subscribing and ready to hear what kind of plans you have up your sleeve for this trip.

I love that photo of the playdoh can. Not sure I've ever seen that before. How cool!

I'm leaving next week for my own "mother/daughter" trip... except I'm the daughter, LOL! I'm going on a "girls only" trip with friends, then my mom and sister are coming down to join me!

DH and I have taken our two DDs twice... first in '07, then again last October. He says he's good to go to WDW every 3 years. I can't get him to go any sooner than that! So, looks like we'll be back in 2013!

Hi Joy! I'm in and can't wait to hear all your plans. It's great to put a face with an avatar!

We're staying at the POP hoping for building 5 ground floor facing the hippy dippy pool. We're never there during the day, so the noise won't bother us!
