Talking Dole Whip is a Dish Best Served Cold. A Sept PTR- 10/2 - TR POSTED!

The Mother In Law
The Master Manipulator

I believe in Walt Disney World.

Walt Disney World has made my dreams come true, and I influenced my family in Walt Disney World Fashion.

It might have been a mistake to introduce my in-laws to the magic, on the other hand, it might have been my greatest moment. I am currently feeling a mix of grateful, surprised, and astonished.

As with every other PTR I've ever written, this is going to follow the typical pattern for me. No WDW trip was scheduled this year, going to Germany to visit my friend instead. Renovating the basement. Other expenses. (Seriously, go look at my other PTRs, they all start the same.)

This year, Germany is actually going to happen. No matter what it takes. That means no trip to Disney. Two trips are just not in the budget this year.



Enter Mother in Law.

Travel agent extraordinaire.

Traveler, deal-finder, new Disney lover, and lucky.



She won a free week at a condo in Orlando.

Then?

She made me an offer I couldn't refuse.

The family meets tonight to discuss Walt Disney World and more.

It goes down in September, from the 20-27, at the Bella Piazza Condos in Orlando.

Buckle up for yet another PTR by Wendy. Info, intros, details and the rest to come soon.
