We are just under our 180 day mark for our every two years trip to see the mouse. I figured now would be as good time as any to start a pre-trip report. As I have said in the Title... This is a four generation grand gathering trip, with the youngest being 4 and the oldest being 76... aye ya aye. Some of the cast is the same as our last Disney adventure ( see link in siggie) So now I present the cast of Characters, in no particular order. Me- Mandy, age 29, no really, for the first time. I will celebrate my 30th birthday at Walt Disney World this year. Been to Disney and surround area a lot, but this is my 2nd time to stay on-site. Favorite Ride: Rockin Roller coaster. Favorite Character: Goofy DH- Scott, 39 when we go. Likes Disney well enough to suggest going this year instead of in 2 more years Favorite Ride: Rockin Roller coaster Favorite Character: Stitch DD- Bradyn, 6, third Disney trip in 4 years. Has never stayed off site. Hoping to grow another inch or two to ride Rockin Roller coaster.. anyone seeing a trend here? Favorite Character: Cinderella though Tinkerbell is running a close second. DS- Alex- 4 at the time of travel. Needs to grow about an inch and a half to hit the magical 40 in mark. We've been putting growing dust in his food favorite ride: The grand Prix. Favorite Character- Wall-E DM- My mom. 51, loves everything Disney. Favorite ride. Its a Small World. Favorite Character- Eyeore I think DDad- My dad, 53, and tolerates Disney. official driver of the big ol van of adults. Uses a ECV in the parks due to losing his leg in a work accident 13 yrs ago. Favorite Character- Donald Duck Gma- My grand ma, 74 and doesn't act a day over 50. Seriously she doesnt think shes old at all. Still does the barn work and all that. Currently refusing to get an ECV- wants to make sure the handicapped and elderly who need them have them. Gpa- My grandfather- 76, early stages of dementia but loves being around kids, keeps telling my mom he wants to go to Florida one last time ( I think this is their 3rd last time trip, kinda like the band Kiss and their last tour) Accommodations: 2 regular rooms at All Star Movies My family in one room, the van full of adults in the other. Check in Date: December 12th ( for me) and December 13th for the van of adults.. more about this later.
