Well, it's been almost 4 weeks since returning from the World (11/26-12/4) And, after Post-Disney Depression, Christmas, and a Family Flu Fest, I have finally sorted through all of my photos. I'm now ready to re-live a truly special trip through my first ever DIS Trip Report!! This was mine and my DD's (11) 2nd WDW trip (our First Trip's report on my personal blog can be found in my siggy,) My Mom's first ever WDW trip, and all of our's First Ever Christmas Trip. So, there were three of us. Three generations of princesses ready to conquer The World in just 9 days. Let me introduce us. There's Me. I am the trip planner extraordinaire. The one who dreams of and begins planning the next Disney Vacation before the current one has even ended. I grew up in CA regularly going to DLR and took my first Family Trip to WDW in 2011. I completely fell in love with The World and have become a loyal customer. I am a Professional Photographer and love documenting as much detail of each trip as I can. But, I try not to let "getting that perfect shot" get in the way of being in the moment. So, for the most part, I consider my Disney Photos to be snapshots. Some day, I would love to take a trip just for the sole purpose of creating great photos in the park. There's My DD (11.) She is my baby and loves WDW as much as me. Our First Trip in 2011, she cried at the end of Wishes on our last night and informed me that we couldn't leave. She is a preteen right now and caught in that in between stage of sometimes acting "grown" and sometimes still being a child. I was hoping that this trip would preserve a little of that "child" in her (at least for the week.) I was so looking forward to spending quality time with her and I wasn't disappointed. There's my mom. She actually lives in OR, 2000 miles away from me and 3000 miles away from WDW. My first trip to DLR was when she was preggers with me, so I guess you could say we've always had quite the Disney Bond. She is also a Christmas Fanatic and was really excited that her First WDW experience would be at Christmas Time. She had quite the travel adventure getting to WDW, with about 10 hrs. of Red Eye flight/travel, and I was worried about her being too tired once she arrived. But she is young at heart and after just a short nap on our first day, she was ready to go!! Here is a photo of all three of us at Epcot on Day 4. Before I delve into the story of our 9 day adventure, a little background on this Trip. As stated before, our first Family Trip was in Feb. of 2011. It was a perfect vacation and I fell head over heels in love with WDW. Unfortunately, my husband did not. He didn't hate it, but he just has no desire to ever return. So, when planning this trip, I had originally planned on just me and my 2 daughters going (my oldest DD is 12 1/2.) Sadly, my oldest DD was not interested in going either. While she did enjoy our first trip, she doesn't travel well and is quite the home body. Also, the plan was that this trip would be our Christmas Present and she was not down with that. So, she stayed home and got a laptop instead. She was given it early for Christmas and, let me tell you, was not sad in the least that she didn't go with us. So, when I knew that it would be just my DD (11) and I, I immediately asked my mom if she would like to go. I'm so glad she said yes, because she fell in love with WDW too and it was so special to have her along. Here are a few Important Details: Where We Stayed: Pop Century (First Time Staying On Site.)
