Celebrations Galore & Free Dining too! A Sept 2012 PTR (TR started!)

Hello there! Welcome to my 4th PTR. I'm so glad that you decided to join me! For those of you who are new to my PTR/TR's, here's a quick intro to my family.

Me- Meghan; 29 years old; Stay at home mom, ballet/lyrical teacher, Disney Vacation Specialist (aka Travel Agent). I absolutely LOVE all of my jobs. I've been dancing since I was 5 years old and I just love sharing my love of dance with all of my students. My dream job has always been to help others plan their Disney vacations and I can't believe it's now a reality (if you want to know what agency I work for, just send me a PM!). I get so excited for all of my clients and I kind of get to live through them. Sharing my Disney knowledge is so much fun! Anyways....this will be my 11th trip to The World and I'm just as excited as ever.

DH-Tony; 28 yeard old; Project Manager. Tony took his first trip to WDW when he was 18 with me and my family. This will be his 6th trip and he's definately a huge Disney fan now. His first trip on property really opened his eyes. He loves to play baseball and is a big sports fan. His favorite ride is definately Rock N Roller Coaster.

DD-Madison, 9 years old. She is a bundle of energy and so much fun to be around. She enjoys Irish dancing, playing the flute, reading her Kindle, playing soccer and playing with her little brother. She is a very smart little girl and she landed a lead role in her school's musical this year. She was also voted class president of the 4th grade! This will be her 5th trip to WDW. She loves Test Track, Space Mountain, Big Thunder Mountain and Soarin'.

DS-Cole, 8 months old. My little guy brings a smile to my face everyday. He is such a happy baby and my little snuggler. This will be his first trip and I am BEYOND excited!!! He will be 15 months old by the time we go on vacation and I get teary eyed just thinking about it.



Here's us on our last trip in September 2010


Our newest addition...my little guy on Valentine's Day

So, you're probably wondering what our plans are. Well, nothing is booked yet, but our dates are September 19-26th (has been changed to Sept 18-25th) at Port Orleans French Quarter. This is a new resort for us and I'm really looking forward to it. I love the look of the resort, the size, one bus stop..it's going to be great! I love doing PTR's so I have someone to share all of my planning (and shopping) with. Feel free to check out my past PTR/TR's...the links are in my signature. I'll be posting about which celebrations we will be celebrating in a later post. Thanks for reading!

PS...I like to post chapter links for easier reading. I'll be posting all of my links in the next post. Also, all updates will be in this big blue writing!

First one here!

So glad you started a PTR. But FOUR DAYS?? I'm missing you by FOUR DAYS?? Ugh. It would've been so fun to have a DIS meet with you!

Cole is adorable.

I have to ask you, do you watch Dance Moms? Are these women for real??

AHHH! That is so frustrating!

Thanks! We think he's pretty cute too.

I do watch it, but I don't know why. It's such a train wreck! I don't think that is how those women really behave. I think it's VERY scripted. I have had plenty of strict dance teachers in my life, but none like Abby. Again, I think it's just for the show. At least I hope so!
