Welcome to my 3rd trip report. I can't wait to share with you all about the trip that I took with my girls last month. It was a completely different style of trip for us and we had a wonderful time. The story of this trip picks up where our last trip ended. As we drove away after our March 2011 trip, DD5 made one last observation, Mommy, I am happy at Disneyworld. My first thought was Well now, aren't we all? But, then I got to thinking. She truly IS happy at Disneyworld really like nowhere else. How long will this last? How long will she get caught up in the magic and the excitement? DD7 has fun at Disneyworld and there are moments where she lets her guard down and she gets swept up in the magic but in large part, she no longer experiences the joy and wonder of DD5 and DS2. What if that is gone for DD5 by the time she is 7? We weren't planning to return to WDW until after the Fantasyland renovation. That would mean that DD5 would be 7 years old. What if this was the last trip to watch her eyes light up when CM's called her princess? What if it was the last time she wanted to dress up and have princess hair? What if next time she is done riding Aladdin with mom and wants to take off on the roller coasters with dad too? Well, those thoughts were just too much for this sentimental mommy to bear. I told DH that I wanted to go back. Now, my DH is always happy to go to WDW, but even he wasn't ready to plan another trip so soon. We knew that we would be returning to Florida in July to visit family, so I asked him if I could go with just the girls. DH agreed, but decided that we needed to keep to a very strict budget - $1300. OK, enough backstory. Let's move on to the cast: Me, I'm Karen My favorite rides are Kali River Rapids, Buzz Lightyear Space Ranger Spin, and Soarin'. I avoid anything that moves faster than I can walk. This was my 13th trip to WDW. DD7 This was her 7th trip to WDW. She has unbounded energy. Her favorite rides are Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, Kali, and Toy Story Midway Mania. DD5 This was her 6th trip to WDW. She is the consummate princess. She likes Spaceship Earth and Carousel of Progress (not exactly a thrill rider) and loves meeting characters. That's it! If you are a reader of my other trip reports you will notice a lot of people missing! We usually have my DH and DS2 and MIL and FIL along (and sometimes the nephews, DH's cousin, cousin's kids, etc.) This time it is just my girls and me!
