Sense and (Disney!) Snobbery - lasting chocolate notes and the Wave breakfast buffet

It is a truth universally acknowledged that a young girl in possession of a great love for Disney must be in want of a trip to the most magical place on earth!

Lucky for this Disney Snob that trip is happening now! I am posting live from the Treetop Villas (which are gorgeous, can't wait to share my pics!!) at Disney World.

No time for a full update now, but just wanted to start the thread up. Save this spot guys, a new Disney Snob TR is starting soon!

<3 Emma

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

So I suppose I'd better start this thing up properly!

In case you don't know me, I'm Emma, resident Disney Snob! I'm not a mean snob though, I promise, I'm a friendly snob! My nose is only in the air when it comes to Disney -- I've never been to Universal and have a tendency to look down on lesser theme parks. But then the pixie dust of the Disney parks will do that to you!

This is my seventh trippie on the DIS, and the cast and crew (aka, my family, the "Snobbish" family) are just as crazy as ever! Without further adieu, a few introductions:

Emma: Hey, that's me! Disney Snob. Recent Notre Dame Grad (still job seeking. drat this economy!). Follies and nonsense do divert me, but my favorite things are Disney princesses, chocolate, and books (especially brit lit and Jane Austen -- get the title?? Sense and Snobbery instead of Sense and Sensibility?? yes??). Oh, and the Polynesian is my Pemberley.

Momma Snob: My lovely mother! Disney planner extraordinaire. Terrible tease but always terribly fun to be with!

The Dad: Father of our Snobbish Clan. Keeps us all in line. Likes historical, brainy things.

Aramis: Older brother and Cast Member (if you ever had some debonair fellow seat you at Chef Mickey's, it might've been him!). Gets us the discounts. Oh yeah. Into anime and pokemon and such.

Porthos: Brother No. 2. College Sophomore (no wait, really? my baby brother?? where does the time go?). Has the coolest and most extensive collection of dorky t-shirts that you will ever see. Mad about Star Trek, sciency stuff, and ordered burgers at every single TS meal this trip. I'm not kidding.

Athos: Third Brother. High School Sophomore. Constantly quoting either Phineas and Ferb or Shakespeare. (His favorite insult: "Thou art a villain. Thou art a fish." Recently he got a fortune cookie that said "It's hard to be fabulous. But you are." Only he made up the second sentence. Loves dinos, creatures, and critters of every kind.

Dart: Adorable Youngest Brother. Second Grader. Still has a little crush on Minnie, though he won't admit it. Into cars and vehicles and trains most especially (naturally he's a big Disney transportation fan). Was SUPER excited to see Cars II at Downtown Disney at the end of our trip.

Add in a few mini princess mascots you'll meet along the way and a few frogs and lizards Athos caught and that's everybody!

The where? DISNEY WORLD of course! And the Treehouse Villas and a little bit of Riverside and a pinch of Polynesian club level! Ready for loads of photos, plenty of adventures, a little sense, and some Disney snobbery? Then you've come to the right trip report!
