Cool Have 527 Days Until Our Vacation, But I Need Some Disney Magic Now!*22 DAYS TO GO!!!!

So there you were browsing around in the new PTR's and you came across this:

So What If We Still Have 527 Days Until Our Vacation, I Need Some Disney Magic Now!

Did it get your intrest? Did it want you reading more? Did you think why is this crazy person starting a PTR when she can't even book a trip yet?

Yea, I admite that 527 days might be a little soon to start a trip report, but as the title says . . . I need some Disney Magic Now!!

It has been about 7 months since I went to WDW with my DS. I was on here ever day talking and typing up a storm. When I got back I was anxious to write my TR and tell everyone what happend. Well here we are 7 months later and I am still not done. Still have over 2 days to write about. So what did I need to do . . . Start planning the trip with my DD in 2013 of course.

Have not been able to plan much yet since I can't officially book the trip untill next August, but I have done a few things.

So sit back, relax and enjoy the ride. Feel free to tune into my TR that I am still hoping to finish.

Coming Soon: Our Cast of Characters and exactly what can you plan 527 before your trip.

Cast of Characters

So lets get this party started the right way and intoduce the cast of Characters.

Hi my name is Corrine.

I am a 38 year old mother of four wonderful kids. A 9, 4, and 21 month old sons; and a 6 year old daughter. I went to Disneyland when I was a little girl but honestly don't remember much and there seems to be no pictures from the experience. I than spent years hoping to one day go to WDW but feeling that I could never make it happen. Than tragedy struck our lives that had a big fat WDW silver linning. My eldest son was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis. We were devestated, but than we were told by a MaW representative that he would be able to make a wish trip. He chose to go to WDW and we all had the time of our lives.

Well, I was hooked. I couldn't go through life not going back to the most Magical place in all the world. But there was no way I could afford to go to WDW with four kids. So that is when I came up with the idea to split up the trips to every other year and with only on kid at a time for there birthday. My eldest, Liam, got to go this year in May for his 9th birthday. So 2013 will be my DD's year!!!

Next is my DD Mia.

She is currently 6 years old but will be almost 8 when we go. While her birthday is in July I am planning on going on the trip at the end of May for cooler weather and slightly cheaper prices. She is the only girl in the family and is definatly a girl through and through. She loves pink, purple, and anything sparkly. I have already promised her a princess dress for the trip and hope to make her several new disney related outfits just for the trip. I'm looking foward to planning with her and doing a lot of "girly" things that I can't do with the boys.

I have been talking to a friend of mine about going with us with her DD and making it an all girls trip. We would share a room making it a little bit cheaper for all of us. Since I haven't talked to her about including her information I will not say to much about her know. All we will say is that she is about my age and would be bringing her DD who will be 9 at the time of our trip.

Well that is it for now! Join us soon on our next instalment when I talk about possible resorts, my plans to save for this trip, and ideas for ADR's.

Until then, Have a Magical Disney Day!!!!

Glad to see you here Lidian. At least I am not having a conversation with myself. Seems I have had many viewers but only one comment besides myself.

Sound like a good snag to me, I wouldn't mind having that kind of snag. I wish I could go to WDW every year, but since it isn't in the budget I will have to seatle for every other year. But who knows, maybe I will win the lottery and be able to buy into the DVC. Then I will have an excuse to go all the time. "But we have to go to Disney or we will wast all those DVC points," I say pouting my mouth and batting my eyelashes.

I understand that. My kids start school in the middle of August which is crazy to me. I had the trip with my son perfectly planned this year to start the Sunday after school ended. . that was until there was two snow days and the last day of school was now the weds. of the next week. Luckily the teacher understood the situation and it was only really one full day and a half day of school that they were not going to do much at anyway.

What is your Home resort, if I may ask?

I'm here!

You don't know me, but your title totally caught my attention, seeing as it's only been roughly 1,140 days since I've been in WDW - but who's counting. I feel your pain, really, I do...

Every time I leave WDW, I swear that I'll be back sooner than the last time... 5 years is just too long between trips.

So, I am gonna hang out for a while and see what you have planned.

I love Pop. That is where we went at the end of May this year. At this point I am thinking Pop again or trying Art of Imagination.

D, it's good to see another person join the party. Glad my title caught your attention.

I have seen you over on Lidian's PTR so you aren't a complete stranger to me. Plus it seems as if we have something in common. I just joined the Big Give group and am very proud of sending out my first give at the end of last mont.

I agree, 5 years is way to long to go between trips. It's been hard on me and it's only been 7 months so I can't imagine 5 years. Glad your trip is coming up in the next couple of months.

Feel free to make yourself at home, we're going to be here a while.

This is awesome - it is such a rewarding experience - I just love doing it. Unfortunately, I haven't had much time to participate over the last few months, since I've been busy trying to pay for our trip. I am excited to get back into it once I have the time.

I know, me too... I wish I could go more often - oh well...

So, are you going to serve any appetizers or beverages, since we are going to be here a while?
