Judy!
Glad you made it over! I know how busy you are so glad to have you tagging along! And you made it over from Lisa's link, and she still hasn't found me....

Of course I am here - need to go back and read the intro now!
Magdalene! I knew you would be up to the challenge of finding the TR without too much help! I wanted to give everyone a chance in the different time zones to find it before I started broadcasting it too much! Glad you joined in since you and Katharina will be a part of this story!

marv, I'm looking forward to this TR? What speed should I expect?
Katharina! So glad you joined in too! Now my two favorite German sisters are here to keep me straight...... As far as speed, well, I can't get too fast since I don't want to get ahead of your's and Magdalene's story..... I know how busy you are, so I'll try not to make you have to check in toooo often to keep caught up!

Ok, I'm back ..... I do have a VERY good excuse for being late to the party, I was scrapping our OCT trip, so that's my story and I'm sticking to it

For those of you who don't know me yet, I'm the Marv half of Marvali. I'm the Trip Planner of the group (okay, over-planner maybe) and the one who frequents the DIS Boards among other Disney sites, to gather as much information as I can to plan our trips. As you will see during this TR, those plans are set in stone and NEVER subject to change!!! I am also a very serious, no nonsense guy who is always reserved in my comments and very polite to everyone I know here on the DIS! (.... and don't believe any of the lies that are sure to be posted here in response to that statement, by those claiming to know me.........)

I surely hope you aren't talking about me are you , but this does give us another opportunity to be nice and sweet to you Marv

My DW of over 28 years is Alison. She is a middle school math teacher. She loves going to Disney, actually pretty much anywhere since she loves to travel, but doesn’t care anything about planning the details of the trip as long as we relax and have some family fun!

and I hope you let her get lots of relaxing done with that houseful of boys!

DS22 is Matthew. He has now graduated from college and is serving in the Navy. This trip would be our first without him along.

and we thank him for his service to our country!

DS19 is Jonathan. He is currently living at home while taking classes at a local college.

such a nice young man too! happy we got to meet him in Oct at HOB!

DS15 is Andrew. He is now a 9th grader who plays soccer and runs cross country for the local High School.

hope we will be able to meet Andrew and Matthew when we are visiting Judy this summer!

Here is a picture just before our previous post-Christmas/New Year’s trip.



great photo! did Andrew throw that snowball he's holding at one of his brothers???

We knew we would be heading back to Disney a few months later but very possibly without Matthew, so I purchased Annual Passes using our DVC discount for four of us, and I got Matthew a regular Disney ticket the day we arrived for the days he would be with us. If interested, you can read about that trip here:


Snow to 80 in 8 days-A spoonful of Holiday Cheer


I had hoped we could take our next trip to Disney just after school ended for multiple reasons. The absolute biggest reason was we were hoping when Matthew graduated from college he wouldn’t have to report to the Navy before we could take the trip, and he would be able to go with us. We knew this might be the last possible trip we could all take together as a family for a while and not knowing exactly when that might be we were hoping the timing would work out. As it turned out, the timing wasn't going to work out regardless, so this would be our first Disney trip without all of the family.

Another benefit to an early trip is we are DVC members and the point rates are lower the first few days of June, so we could have saved some points to use later. Also, we would have made it while Star Wars weekends were still going on, and after reading some TRs here on the DIS about them, I knew it was something our family would enjoy experiencing. And last but certainly not least, the later into the summer you travel to Disney, the better the chances that you will deal with hotter temperatures and higher humidity levels, neither of which contributes anything of value to a pleasant trip.

The big barrier to our getting to make the trip when planned was a huge project at work. I knew that it would have to go perfectly from a scheduling standpoint for us to be able to leave when I hoped. Unfortunately as the project moved along, it became obvious that the schedule was going to slip later into June and we probably would not be able to go when hoped, so I made the early call and rescheduled the trip. The dates would now be Friday, July 29th until Sunday, August 7th due to other obligations we had during the summer. So much for avoiding the heat and humidity!!!

could NEVER do WDW during the summer I'd be passed out from the humidity and heat

Well if I WAS talking about you, it would only be on the fringes compared to a few others around here! Feel free to take every available opportunity for being "nice" and "sweet" to Marv!!!

and I hope you let her get lots of relaxing done with that houseful of boys!You'll find relaxing was a BIG part of her summer trip! Actually with the heat, it was for a lot of us!

and we thank him for his service to our country!Thanks Lisa! We are proud of his choice to serve!

such a nice young man too! happy we got to meet him in Oct at HOB! It was a great trip!

hope we will be able to meet Andrew and Matthew when we are visiting Judy this summer!Andrew maybe! Doubtful on Matthew......

great photo! did Andrew throw that snowball he's holding at one of his brothers???Snowball? What snowball?

could NEVER do WDW during the summer I'd be passed out from the humidity and heat Unfortunately that is a common time for us. We are sadly bound to the school schedule!

looking forward to reading along....are we taking bets on how long this TR will take to complete Well okay, as long as I get all the time slots that nobody else takes!

Hmmmmm....I see how it is now. You MET Lisa in person, so now you respond to all of her "in red remarks" and ignore mine. That's okay; and I'm fine with it. I won't cry or anything. I'll just let Lisa and Judy give you grief and mind my own business.

Actually, you always say such nice things I always feel self-conscious. I was hoping to avoid the embarrassment of responding and sounding conceited.

Absolutely; I can think of no one who deserves more abuse than Marv.

Lisa, I did on his intro and he totally ignored me. I'm feeling very unloved by Marv. I think I'll just hang on yours and Judy's TR's from now on.

I could be accused of stalking. I will tell you I did wait until you posted the second post and then I pounced



I am glad you got to page 2. I was afraid I might need to help you out a bit. I know thatif I didn't pick up ont he hint and know the start was imminent I may not have seen it until you added it to your signature. I usually just go to my bookmarked TRs and only visit the main TR page at work.
