It's that time again - time to start planning a trip to the World! What's that you say? I never finished my Sept. '09 PTR? And I still haven't started on my TR for that trip either? I'll get to it, I promise. But in the meantime...let's start planning our May '10 trip! (If you're just joining us, there are installment links in the second post. ) First things first. For those who haven't joined us before, let me introduce the cast of characters. ME (JULIA): I've pretty much been in love with all things Disney for my entire life. I've known all the words to "Once Upon A Dream" since I was 3. I've been known to weep during Disney commercials. And during every song on "Beauty and the Beast." And most of the ones on "The Little Mermaid." And...well, you get the picture. I'm a certified (or certifiable) Disney freak. DH (DARREN): He secretly loves Disney, but likes to act like he doesn't so as not to lose his man card with his friends. If I am a Disney freak, this man is a Tennessee Vols freak. He bleeds orange and white 24/7/365. He's still not totally on board for this trip, but not to worry. He will be. DS (DAKODA): This little man is the reason for the trip. He will be turning 3 years old while we are there! He is well on his way to becoming the next Disney freak in the family. He loves Playhouse Disney, especially MMC, Oso, and the Imagination Movers. He is also starting to appreciate Disney movies. His current favorite is Aladdin. We have seen it approximately 4,531,321 times. Just a rough estimate there. I guess I should also mention that Dakoda has PDD-NOS, which is an Autism Spectrum Disorder. It affects him in several ways, but we have seen huge improvements since we started with early intervention services. DD (SARAH KATE): Last, but certainly not least, we have our little princess. She will celebrate her 1st birthday on 2/17/10. She has the entire family wrapped around her little finger, and she knows it. She likes to dance to the songs on Playhouse Disney and play her Princess piano. She loves her stuffed Minnie Mouse, her baby Belle doll, and everything PINK!
