Fall Polynesian Extravaganza

Hi Everyone!

This is my first ever extensive trip report so I hope I get it right! Our upcoming WDW trip is October 4-10. We live in Atlanta, so we'll drive down hopefully early in the morning of October 4th.

Cast include me (Holly) and DH (Richard) who have been going to WDW our whole relationship. Here is a picture of us in 2001 at V&A:



Then along came DD (Ellie) in 2003. Here is a photo of her first ever ride in 2005:



She loved everything about WDW and I think we went 4 times in 2 years.

and then her 3 year old birthday portrait....so adorable!



Finally DS (Sam) was introduced to the Mouse and his first Disney experience was our only Disney Cruise!


We had fun on the cruise...but we really love WDW much more.

Anyway - thanks for looking at my cuties... we have been to WDW at least 12 times, the Disney Cruise, and Disneyland last year. Here is one last picture of us last year at DL:



We really loved DL. It was so nice to stay right in the park and not have to deal with any transportation issues. We also really liked the small size with little ones. But WDW is still our favorite!

We have stayed on property and off, at moderate and deluxe resorts. I thought this would likely be our last WDW trip for some time so I am planning big! We are going to stay at Poly CL, are going to the Party for the Senses wine view, MNSSHP, and Universal for the first time.

I hope you all follow along. I'll discuss our MB and FP+ plans next as well as packing! We leave in 11 days!!!


Of course when I told DD that this was our last WDW trip for a while she looked at me with her big brown eyes and pouty face and said "but Mom... that's our THING". So we'll see - maybe Paris DL 2014?

Joining in! Can't wait to hear more about your plans especially for MNSSHP. I'm heading down at the end of October for a conference/solo trip then head back with my family in January.

If you haven't yet check out the October DISers' FB page. It's a very friendly and great group of people talking about all things Disney! https://www.facebook.com/groups/october2013disers/

Thanks Holly (sorry got the name mixed up so corrected)! We're a big Disney family like yours! January will be DD's 5th trip and DS' 4th. Love taking pictures at Disney although with young children hard to do

(If you're interested there's more pics on my TR from last January and on my flickr page links.)
