Smile The Mouse-KIDS are in charge...a Jan '12 PTR NEW 2/5 TR link & new tickers

The Kids are running the SHOW…the NEXT Mouse Scrapper Family Trip!



When: 5 days in January 2012 the 15-19th (Sun-Thurs)



We're escaping the cold winter and gray days of Chicago... for Sunny Florida!

Resort: our home DVC resort BLT







After 3 pretty big WDW family trips in a row (June ’08 Poly, Spring break March/April ’09 CSR, and Thanksgiving Break Nov ’10 BLT) plus a Mom solo trip w/ the Spectrum Moms (Jan ’11 AKV) and an upcoming Mickey-versary for Mom and Dad (Oct ’11 BLT) it is time for the Mouse KIDS to get a special trip to themselves!

Here’s the deal:

Mom and Dad have chosen the dates (wanted to pick a slower time and chose days that allowed for the lowest DVC pt spread plus kids will only miss 2 days of school –off the Mon/Tues already) and resort we went w/ our Home because of transportation ease for such a short trip.

Mom and Dad have set some parameters within the type of DDP (OOP and possibly a segment w/ DDP) and type of Park Passes (planning on 5 day non hoppers). We also will have final vote on extras like shopping, mini golf, etc…


The KIDS get to decide which parks we want to spend most of our time in and what we get to do there!

The kids will help plan/make the touring plans/cards

The kids will choose dinning choices (from a pre selected list) and snacks!

The kids will help plan out the extras

…this should make for a FUN and NEW adventure as we get ready to go back to WDW!





I hope you will stay tuned to all that is in store

I was wondering that myself...

I'm back... I was at the ice cream social at school when I saw that you'd started this report & had to jump in from my phone.

This is going to be fun following along with your planning.

it should be interesting, but hopefully by dividing up the tasks based on what they like to do already and their regular "skills" should help...stay tuned to the next post to hear more about that...
