Our WWoHP/WDW Babymoon Photobook TR

Hi! My name is April and my DH is Andrew. We LOVE visiting Disney World!! If you'd like to get to know us better here's the link to my "real" TR:
To ATL and Back: How the Disney Kids survived Snowpocalypse 2011

This photobook TR is of our Babymoon. We had the trip planned before I knew I was pregnant...actually, I bought the plane tickets Tuesday night (for $100 per person round trip!! I couldn't believe I got that deal! $220 total including taxes for DH and I to fly from STL to MCO and back!! It was insane)...anyway, I booked our flights that night, the next morning Free Dining was released and I booked that, then that evening I got my positive pregnancy test! LOL...kinda the best day ever! : and our "one last trip before we have a baby" turned into a "Babymoon" Same basic principle...just ended up being slightly further along than I was really planning on.

I was 30 weeks pregnant and though we had a ton of fun...it was WAY more walking than my body could really handle. I got a blister the first day and was in pain most of the week. I never get blisters but the extra 30+ lbs of baby was a lot to ask my feet to carry around all week. We had to do a lot of stopping and sitting as we went through the day...wasn't so much an issue at WDW but we spent the first 2 days at Universal and BTW...Universal doesn't let a pregnant woman ride ANYTHING!! At Disney I was able to ride most things, at Universal, if it moved...I couldn't go on it. Even the kiddie rides. But we really went to see Harry Potter World and we LOVED it!!

I love to make photobooks so I've made one for every trip. Here is our Babymoon one!

Thanks

We actually stayed at Pop the whole time. I got the Dreams Unlimited Universal ticket package with transportation. That plus the room discount and free Magical Express at Disney ended up being cheaper than even an offsite hotel and car rental/taxi. So we did ME to Pop and stayed there for 2 days using the Dreams Unlimited transportation (Meers) and then re-checked in at Pop with a package for our Disney stay.

It was really kinda nice for us cause we got the Disney feel right away but got to do the 2 days at Universal. And we didn't even have to change rooms or anything. It was kinda awesome.

OH...and they let us pick up our Disney tickets early (I wasn't counting on it but I tried and it worked) so we got to go to MK on our first night. Which was awesome!

AND the DU tickets let us get in early entry to IoA on our second day. I didn't feel like trying it the first day but on our way out of the park I asked a turnstile lady and she double checked the coding and told us they were good for early entry. THAT was super awesome (as you know!)

First off, you are too cute with that bump! Lovin the pics!

Second, Wow! You did soo much more than I expected. While you mentioned taking it slower, you really accomplished quite a bit. That DHS-Epcot-Mk-Epcot-Mk.. I think that was all.. day was packed! I can't believe you did it all at 30wks. I could not have handled this with either of my boys. I'm really glad you and Andrew got in one last trip before Caden though. It looks like a great time, blisters and all.

That day was the most fun of all!! It was much more the way we LIKE to do WDW. It helped that we stopped to take a nap mid-day. But we had a blast running from one place to the next! I think I was able to relax and enjoy that day the most since I knew that the next day would be spent sitting on an airplane...so it didn't matter if I hurt or wore myself out cause I wasn't going to have to spend the next day walking all over creation. I think that was the worst part of the trip, that I hurt each day so then I was trying to be really careful so that I didn't make things worse since I had a whole week ahead of me.
