Yes, the title is correct but that comes a bit later. This is my first TR but I wanted to give back to the DIS since it helped me become the insane planner I am today. Ive been to Disneyworld about 5-6 times in the past, most recently with our family of four for my oldests 4-year birthday. Apparently that started a precedent so here we are again for my 2nd childs 4-year birthday. We went for a 9-day whirlwind tour of EVERYTHING!! We splurged this time around and got the Deluxe Disney Dining Plan. We also planned an "excursion" for each person and some extra surprises Dad had thrown in. Before I start, heres the cast of characters: Mr. Anal Planner himself. Loves all things Disney save the rollercoasters and big thrill rides (re: Tower of Terror, etc.) But Im a big geek and addicted to the Disney rides with all of the audio animatronics My DW (nicknamed Mom) and partner in crime who let me have fun doing all the planning. Mom is a big Pooh Bear fan and was looking forward to the Food & Wine Festival and all the new restaurants. DS6 now going back for his 2nd time and looking forward to the stuff he remembers. He is also excited about the promise of a new park in EPCOT - we skipped that one last time. Also, DS is a Legomaniac and HUGE Pooh Bear fan and never leaves home without the stuffed Pooh Bear he got when he was 1. DD4 is the princess and very much looking forward to her birthday trip! She had a small party on her real birthday about a week and a half earlier but this was the event she was waiting for. DS2 (actually 20 months) and the one who caused the commotion. He was well primed by watching lots of Mickey Mouse Clubhouse and My Friends Tigger and Pooh at home. Rather than using DS6 and DS2 throughout, lets call them DS and X (which is DS2s nickname anyway). Just so you know, I have a double-sided schedule with rides planned to the minute or so. I prided myself on no-waits for anything (especially since the little one couldnt handle it) but knew wed have to push a bit to get to everything. The theory was next time we go (most likely for the little ones 4th), everyone will be in school. We won't be able to take the same amount of time so lets splurge now and see EVERYTHING. Also, since we planned 11/1-11/9, I knew the end of the week would involve the descent of New Jersey onto the parks so I wanted to hit everything early. With all the research, I figured I could re-arrange my schedule on the fly (and did so many times) but at least I knew the general plan and knew when wed be back this way or that. And since we were on the deluxe plan, we had more sit-down ADRs than Im used to so I wanted to make sure we were where we needed to be (and have the confirmation numbers handy just in case). The meals also counted as a way to slow down and take a break every once in a while.
