Talking Cheers to Friendship A ladies weekend Oct. 12 PTR NEW only 2 days till Disney

Once upon a time, in the distant lands of New Hampshire and Illinois lived 3 ordinary Princesses with extraordinary lives. You see each of these princesses although they didn’t know it yet their lives soon would be intertwined for all time.

One Princess worked as a part time bookkeeper and managed the daily needs of her two young sons who needed extra special love and care. She found respite in a fairy tale book called the DisBoards

Another Princess worked out of her home, managing a busy life with two young children with her castle being remolded. She found respite in a fairy tale book called the DisBoards…

The third Princess also worked at home caring for her growing family of four and the never ending needs of raising these children and caring for her injured Prince. She found respite in a fairy tale book called the DisBoards…


As the third princess was planning an ever needed vacation to the Wonderland known as Disney World she met the two other Princesses through the fairy tale book. It came known to them quite quickly they were alike in so many ways.

Years passed and they finally all met face to face with a larger group of Princesses. Before that fateful day though, two of the Princesses were already conspiring a new chapter in their fairy tale book of how to go to this Disney World Together…well now the tale has begun.

Come Join in as these 3 very hard-working Princesses go on vacation together…








The details:

Our coaches will have us arriving in style on October 11-14, 2012

Stay tuned for plans, fun and more…

Up next: Meeting the Princesses

Introductions

Hello! I’m Amy aka DisMomAmy.



I have chosen Snow White as my alter ego for the trip. When I was trying to decide between Snow White & Belle, Julie sent me this description and I knew I had to pick her!

"Snow White is sweet and demure, is great at organization and taking care of a home full of boys."

I love the part about taking care of a house full of boys! And I think she is the princess I most resemble.



This will be my 16th trip… most of which have been in the last 5-6 years. I met Julie & Heidi on the DIS – they are two of the first people I met & we have kept in close contact over the years. Heidi & I even get together occasionally since we only live about an hour and a half away from each other here in NH.

At home, I’m primarily a SAHM taking care of my DH & two boys, Alex (11) and Zach (8), who are both on the autism spectrum. I also do some part time bookkeeping to make a little money for my Disney habit! I’ve been married to Tim for 15 years and we celebrated our 15th at Disney last fall.



The boys came along to help us celebrate and it was our best trip yet. Our next trip is coming up in April & I hope it lives up to November’s trip.

Like Snow White, I love taking care of my boys:




It can get a little stressful at times:


But can also be lots of fun!


OK so here’s my real family!


I have several PTRs & TRs (links in my signature) that you can read if you want to learn more about us. My other current PTR is "It wouldn't be spring without an Epcot F&G Festival.

Up next: Another princess

I'm the blonde one ;)

Greetings! I’m Heidi (MRYPPNS)





I asked the ladies to pick a princess to represent them for the trip because I always like to do a theme or logo for my trip binder. I knew right Rapunzel was my girl. Amy or Julie asked me why Rapunzel and my reply was “because she whacks Flynn Rider with a frying pan when she first meets him!” lol





Then Julie sent me this: “Rapunzel is a dreamer at heart and gets along with everyone, she is very clever and daring, but is loyal to those who trust and respect her.” I was surprised how much that sounded like me in real life.

This trip will be my 11th WDW vacation. Number 10 is coming up soon in April with my family
(DH John, son Liam and daughter Danica)



It’s sort of surreal how much Amy, Julie and I have in common….one of the things we don’t have in common is writing trip reports….I just can’t keep up so they will be doing most of the reporting here and I’ll chime in when I can.

Let’s meet Scrappie…





HI I’m Mouse Scrapper or Scrappie or Julie and my alter ego will be Jasmine for this trip…



Jasmine is a go getter but a pleaser too. She loves fine things but doesn't mind roughing it either. I like that she doesn't get pushed around and loves her "prince" plus Matt and I have a sweet spot for this movie

I have been to WDW 11 times and this will be my 12th trip and 2nd time going w/ friends! I can’t wait to see my traveling partners (Amy and Heidi) again. We FB, email, and chat over the phone A LOT! I truly hold them in the highest regard and count on them long distance for their advice, support and friendship!

I am happily married to Matt (going on 16 years) and we have 4 children: Nathan, Rebekah (twins almost 13), Rachel (9) and Naomi-Ruth (5). You can learn a lot more about them in my last two TR’s (links in my siggie)



I work at home as a SAHM and a private caregiver to two young babies, 1 of which is my niece. Besides getting on the DIS when I can, caring for my family and the babies, I enjoy scrapbooking and crafting.

Stay tuned for where our castle will be for 4 days

I won't go post by post since Scrappie already covered that, but to all of our readers! We have been having some fun crunching numbers, drafting itineraries, weighing pros & cons of different resorts, making early wake-up calls on airfare day, looking at menus etc.! And park hours haven't even been released yet!

I agree - we are right on with our guesses but it would be nice to see the real thing. And I'm curious about the MNSSHP. I'm sure you're probably right about that too!
