Welcome to my first trip report that includes the entire family! We planned the trip back earlier in the year when they announced the Free Dining with the purchase of a Memory Photobook.

Our family was never into vacations like this when we were growing up. Being from Northern Saskatchewan, Canada it was much easier to go to one of the 1000s of lakes we have and go camping, fishing, hiking, etc. This is the first time we've done anything like this together as a family and it was a fantastic bonding time as a family. It was like we were kids again!

When planning I told my mother how much it was going to cost for each of us (Myself, her, and my two brothers). Little did she know that my brothers and I were planning to split her costs and pay for her! It came time for the payment for the trip to be made and we surprised her with an "invoice" inside of a Mickey Mouse card that said:

Amount Owing: $0.00 - HAVE A MAGICAL TRIP!

She was at a loss for words, she saved all this money and didn't have to spend any of it! All she said was "Well I'll be buying us tons of goodies while were there!".

Trip Summary
  • Resort: POP Century
  • Dates: September 4th – September 12th, 2011
  • Days/Nights: 8 Days/9 Nights
  • Dining Plan: Quick Service Dining Plan (free with the purchase of the Memories Photo Book for $99)
  • Other Theme Parks: Universal Studios (Wizarding World of Harry Potter)
  • Number of Photos: Over 1000
  • Number of Videos: Approx. 10GB
  • Cost Per Person: Approx. $1100 (including return flights from Canada)
  • Number of Memories: Countless

My trip report will be on my blog due to the number of photos and videos I have. I also love keeping all my trips in one spot to read later! I hope you guys all enjoy reading!

It was a fantastic family vacation and my family absolutely loved it and cannot wait to go back!

Now lets get to the Trip Report!

Was having some server issues which caused my TR to not be accessible for a few hours. It's back up and running now! Complete with a new little logo

I had to have two of them during my visit. Even got my brothers and mother to have one. I'm not one for a lot of sweet things but I couldn't resist this and it was well worth it!
