"One More Waffle!" An October 2011 TR! *Update 4/24, pg 70-The End!*

HELLO and welcome to my 3rd trip report! We just got back on Saturday from an amazing 10 DAYS in the World, and I'm so excited to share our trip with all of you!

Let's just jump right in and get all the important stuff out of the way, shall we?

The cast of this trip was:

Me! Jen, obsessive Disney freak! Always looking for a way to get back to Disney World, and ways to bring Disney into my every day life! This was my 9th trip to Disney, I went 4 times with my family when I was younger, and now 5 times with my DH!

My DH is Brandon, who was obviously with me on the trip!

That's him, being impatient with my whole "hold on, I need to take a picture of that before you eat it" thing I had going on every time we ate something! He likes Disney World, you might even say he loves it, but definitely not the way I do, although I think with each trip we take, he's turning into more and more of a freak!

The dates of our trip were 9/29-10/8, our longest trip yet! We chose to go in early October because for the past 2 years, we have gone in November for all the Christmas festivities, and really wanted to give early Fall a try! I heard such great things about Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party, and after catching the end of the Food and Wine festival last year, we knew we wanted to do that again for a full week. That, combined with getting an awesome pin code discount for our resort, is how we decided to go the first week of October (and the last couple days of September, because I kept adding days!)

The pin code was kind of important, because I knew I REALLY wanted to stay at a deluxe resort for this trip, and without some kind of discount, it wouldn't have happened! But we ended up staying at my beloved Wilderness Lodge, which we have stayed at before, and loved! I really feel so at home at this resort, it was nice to return again after staying there 2 years ago!

I hope all of my DIS friends will join me to read along about our trip, and I hope to meet some new DIS friends along the way, so please, feel free to join in and say hi! There were many fun, exciting, spectacular moments that I can't wait to share (and of course, a few not so magical things along the way!) So I hope you will all sit back, relax, keep your hands and arms inside the carpet, and soon this trip report will be ready to go!

(Oh yes, one more thing, the title of this TR-I had a few that I was considering, but none of them really jumped out at me. Then I was at work today, thinking about how I'd love a waffle from the Belgium booth at the Food and Wine festival, and remembered how excited they got every time someone ordered a waffle! The person reading the orders would say "one more waffle" and everyone preparing the orders would yell "ONE MORE WAFFLE!" As soon as I remembered that, I knew that was the title of my TR!)
