ALOHA fellow DISers!!!!!

It's time for another Murphy family LIVE trip report!!!
Those of you who have traveled with us before, welcome back!
Newbies, we are glad to have you with us!
A little bit about our family:

Me: Erika, age 38, stay at home mom, obsessed with Disney, as well as several other unhealthy relationships with Twilight, Harry Potter, and Farmville. I do 99% of the planning, packing, touring plans, dining reservations, etc.

DH: Brendan, age 39, hard working man who is in desperate need of a vacation , a true lover of Disney, obsessed with sports, loves all the rides and especially the food and beer.

DS: Nic, age 12, 7th grade, videogame addict, loves Space Mountain, loves Epcot, collects Vinylmation.

DS: Connor, age 10, 5th grade, Lego addict, majorly obsessed with Star Wars, loves all the characters, favorites are Pooh, Duffy, and Lotso. Favorite park is MK, collects pressed pennies and autographs.

We will be traveling to WDW for six nights at the Poly in the CL with free dining. Of course hitting MNSSHP and the IFWF while we're there. ADRs are made for Teppen Edo, Chefs de France, Spirit of Aloha dinner show, and Narcoosee's. We plan to use our snack credits around the WS sampling the amazing festival goodies.

I am up to my eyeballs in packing but I will be checking back here periodically for any pre-trip questions. If there is something you want me to investigate while I'm there let me know. I am happy to ask questions and find out things. I plan to upload lots of pics, usually one big upload every night but sometimes iPhone pics during the day mostly on my Twitter. Thanks for joining us and HERE WE GOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!
