Disney World? Nope! It's Worley World! Our 2011 Disney Adventures! *Updated 4/25/12*

Hi everyone! Welcome to our year long WDW Trip Report! This is our second set of WDW passes! Our first set we got in September of 2009 when we upgraded our tickets to Florida Resident Seasonal Passes. That set expired in December of 2010 and we got our new set in February of 2011. We decided to stick with the seasonal passes instead of the regular annual passes since we don't really want to go during any of the times that are blacked out anyways.

So, who are we you might ask? Here is your cast of characters for this year long TR:

Me, Me, Erin. A 29 year old, former kindergarten teacher turned stay at home mom to my princess Olivia and wife to my DH. I have loved all things Disney since my first visit when I was 4. I was born in Wisconsin and moved down to Florida when I was 8 and have been here ever since. We live about 1.5 hours from the mouse on the west coast of Florida, just south of Tampa. I am the total anal Disney planner and start planning the next big trip on the way home from the last one!



DH, Toby. A super hard working 25 year old daddy to Olivia! Toby works extremely hard so that I can stay home with Olivia! Toby will be the first to tell you that I am totally obsessed with Disney, although he does not share in my obsession (yet!). We went to Disney while I was pregnant with Olivia and I have been dragging him along ever since. He says Disney is just "ok", but while we are there he is having a blast and loving every minute of it.



DD, Olivia. Our 3 year old princess who, like me, loves all things Disney! She is our little miracle baby. Olivia was born at just 32 weeks, weighing 4 pounds and measuring 16 3/4 inches long and spent 3.5 weeks in the NICU more than an hour away from home. She made a total turn around, and now you would never know (other than being a bit on the small side) that she was a preemie! Olivia loves every minute of our Disney trips and asks on a daily basis to go back!







So, now that you have the basics, I will get started on writing the fun stuff!

For some background reading:

You are indeed first! I wish I could say I had some great prize to offer, but I have nothing! I'm glad you like the title....I had a heck of a time thinking of one, and I'm still not even sure I like this one!

I should have a "real" post up tomorrow!

I have been reading TR's to get ready for my upcoming trip and ran across yours. I can't wait to read more.

Your DD is so adorable, a true princess

He have a small thing in common. My youngest son was also a miracle baby. He was born at just over 26 weeks and weight a little over 2 lbs.

I knew you would be here! Let me tell you, your title still isn't out! I'm not sure if I like this one enough to see it for a whole year, so I might change it! I'm so excited that you will be down here! You will definitely have to come down here so we can go to the Oyster Bar!

Honestly, WDW is the ONLY good thing about living in Florida as far as I'm concerned!

How exciting that you have a trip coming up! We have never done a SWW, and I think I will probably wait until Olivia is older (and have more time to prepare for the chaos) before we try one!

Thank you, we think Olivia is pretty cute too (but all parents think their kids are cute right?).

Wow, 26 weeks! I can't even imagine that! How long did he have to spend in the NICU? Isn't it amazing how resilient the little, tiny babies are?

Hi Michelle! Glad to see you here! I was trying to get an update done today, but my SIL popped over, so I was distracted. I'm REALLY going to try not to let so long go between updates like I did on my Dec TR!
