Hi Everyone! Welcome to my second trip report! I have to say, writing these reports is a little addictive almost as addictive as reading everyone elses reports! I love reading everyones trip details and get so many great ideas I hope that my reports can provide some helpful info, or at least some entertainment! (Especially for anyone traveling with a toddler!!) Our last WDW trip was last November. And when we left after that trip, we didnt have any plans for a future trip. Little did I know that not 6 months later, wed be booking our first Disney Cruise Line adventure! Ok, so here are the details: Who: Our little family of 3! We live in northern VA, near DC (but are originally from New England, and miss it a lot!). On this trip, DD was just over 2 ½ years old (2 yrs and 8 months to be exact!). Every trip we take is a new adventure we took DD to WDW at 14 months and 26 months, and now DCL. Probably the biggest change for this trip was that DD was potty-trained! WOOHOO! Motivated in part by the fact that certain pools on the ship required kids to be potty-trained Here we are in November 2013: DH: Favorite resort: Yacht Club for location, Wilderness Lodge for atmosphere (although he really like POR after this last trip!) Favorite attraction: Spaceship Earth Favorite Disney food: A bratwurst from Germany! Others favorites: Craft beer and hiking Me: Favorite resort: Ahh, dont make me choose its a toss-up between Wilderness Lodge and Yacht Club Favorite attraction: Expedition Everest, with Splash Mountain as a close 2nd oh but I also love Illuminations and the Main Street Electrical Parade Favorite Disney food: Grand Marnier slushies and Dole whips! Other favorites: Cooking and shopping DD: Favorite resort: Anywhere with a pool! Favorite attraction: Its a Small World or The Seas! Favorite Disney food: Mac n cheese! Other favorites: Sofia the 1st and Frozen What: One night at Port Orleans-Riverside and a trip to Downtown Disney, followed by a 7-night western Caribbean cruise on the Disney Fantasy When: May 23-31, 2014 Where: DCA MCO WDW - Port Canaveral Cozumel, Mexico - Grand Cayman Falmouth, Jamaica - Castaway Cay, Bahamas Port Canaveral MCO - DCA Why: Do we really need a why? This trip wasnt to celebrate anything in particular. Life as working parents who don't live near family is crazy --- and we just needed a little break from the daily grind. For us, a trip to Disney is a total break from reality, and where we are the most relaxed --- no work, no cooking, no cleaning, no yard work just lots of time to be together as a family in the happiest place on earth! So welcome!! Cant wait to get started!!!
