3 Princesses Hit the Parks!-A 2/13 Girls Trip TR!*Update 6/19, pg 23-The End!*

Welcome Everyone!

To my SUPER fast paced TR!

WHY is it fast paced you ask? Well, because I currently have another epic TR that I'm in the middle of writing right now for my wonderful November 2012 trip (link is in the signature, if you'd like to read it! ) and I just don't think I can handle doing 2 full TR's right now!

I did contemplate NOT doing a TR for this trip at all, but that would be crazy, right? I have to do something...so this TR is going to be a little different than others. Each update is going to be an entire day of the trip, I'm only going to focus on the highlights, and probably TONS of pictures. I did take lots of pictures, after all! (Most of them on my phone, which has a surprisingly decent camera! )

Oooook, so I'm getting kind of ahead of myself...you're probably wondering what trip I'm even taking about right? Well, last week I just got back from my first girls trip with my sister and niece! Ready to meet the cast?

I'm Jen, on the right! (That's the only picture you will see of me in this TR, by the way! I was only in a few pictures and they were all awful!) I'm sure many of you know me from my TR's, and from me reading yours! I'm obsessed with Disney World, I want to be there every second of my life! I swear, the only reason I have a job is to pay my bills and fund my Disney addiction!

Next we have my sister, Diane on the left! She is a DIS'er, her name is pinkxray on here, but didn't want to do a TR! I think she mostly lurks here now, but maybe she will pop up during this TR! Hopefully she will write something about her experience doing the Princess Half marathon for us!

Last but certainly not least, Diane's 8 year old daughter, my niece Caitlin!

She's a tough one to describe...I'd say she's 8 going on 18! She's sweet and smart and funny and has a mind of her own! She and my sister kind of butted heads a little during this trip (Caitlin did NOT want to do any of the "Lame" attractions ) but I would also say they are best friends! You will definitely get to see her personality in this TR, she is quite interesting and entertaining!

Our trip was from February 18-25, and our reason was for Diane to run the Princess Half marathon! Originally, I was thinking of attempting to train for it too...then I figured "eh, I'll just do the Royal Family 5K"...then I never trained for that so I ended up doing nothing! Just enjoying the parks! After seeing my sister finish the half though, getting that medal, and being in the Epcot when the race is going on, and watching all of these people accomplish this amazing goal-well, I want to run a Disney half marathon! I'd like to do the Princess half next year, BUT it was super humid that day, and I keep reading about the Tinkerbell half in Disneyland and that sounds kind of interesting...

We did a split stay between AKV and BLT, my first time staying in both of those resorts! Diane and Cailtin have stayed in AKV before, but never BLT. I ended up loving one resort and just liking another, but you will have to stay tuned to hear more about that!

The parks were CROWDED! I knew we were going during a peak time, but I had no idea how crazy it would be! Luckily, we did rope drop most days and got a lot done, but during the afternoons, it was almost impossible to get on any rides!

I hope you will all join me on this SUPER FAST TR of highlights of our February trip to the World! The plan is to do an update every other day, with a day for comments in between! I'm hoping I can keep up this pace! Is everyone ready??? See you soon!!

I'm in. I was really considering doing a quick TR if you didn't but I just can't be on the boards too much with no trip in sight. I have such Disney blues knowing it will be a few years until we return. John says about 5 years but I told him today I already have an Oct 2014 trip planned in my mind and all I got was an eye roll. At least he didn't say no

I'm here Funny story, I actually read some of your sister's TR's on here but I haven't been spending as much time on the DIS lately so I really haven't been reading many TRs (I haven't even gotten around to writing my own yet). Anyway I'm totally reading along for this one . I love all girl trips. I'm actually considering doing a highlights TR for my trip as well since i'm too lazy to do a full TR and my trip was really long so it would take me forever.

I follow your other TR and so hopped over to this one too. When you mentioned pinkxray, I finally put things together and realized I had followed her dining reports from your trip on the Live Dining thread run by Jabead! Dis threads colliding!
Looking forward to the full TR!
