Update 2/16: NOW I feel magical! ~ A July 2012 TR

Hello fellow DISers!

We just returned from 7 days at The World and although I have to wait a few days until my PhotoPass CD arrives, I thought I'd reserve a spot here!

This was a "family" trip of sorts... 8 adults, 5 of us are related!

Me and my BF of almost 9 years, Lumar.
My sister Steph and her BF Rob.
My brother Mike.
My cousin Toni and her fiance Josh.
My cousin Tom (Toni's brother).

I know, it seems like a lot of people to keep track of, but I'll try to stick reminders in there for you, and of course, there will be pictures!

We stayed at Old Key West, renting DVC points - arriving on Monday July 9th, and we just came back today, July 16th.

We had several table service meals, and I'm going to admit right now that I hardly took any food porn pictures. I normally take pictures of everything I stuff into my face while in WDW, but there was so much going on this time around, that I usually forgot!

I'm starting a new job tomorrow ( ) so it may be a day or two before I post my first update! Wish me luck!
