[/B]Hello Everyone! Welcome to my very first trip report! I have read so many amazing, fun trip reports here that I thought I might try writing one myself. So here we go! All About Us Well, make that a little about us. I considered not bothering to go into the logistics of who we are, because frankly, we are not easy to explain. Ask anyone who knows us. They will tell you I have no idea what their deal is! So, here are the basics, the good, the bad, and to some, the kinda weird that is Us. Carol: 37 years old. No kids. Never married. Substitute teacher in search of a full time permanent position. Not an easy thing to do around here. Tony:37 years old. No kids. Really dislikes kids (which leads one to wonder why he likes WDW, probably has the largest population of kids in one place in the whole world go figure.) Never married. Computer Guy extraordinaire. Happy to be single. Ok, so you are asking yourself, are they a couple? Short answer:no. Should they be? Probably not. Weve been down that road. We have known each other for 15 years. We know each other too well to be a couple. So in the interest of moving this long winded explanation of what our deal is along, lets just say we are best friends and travelling companions and leave it at that. Oh ya, and we both hate having our picture taken too. So if you want a trip report filled with pictures of us frolicking throughout Disney World, you aint (I know, great word for a teacher to use) gonna find it here! Perhaps I will sneak one or two in you will just have to wait and see what these two weirdos look like! Try not to get us mixed up with the pictures of Grumpy and Donald (I am a little grumpy in the morning, and well, Tony doesnt wear any pants either and he tends to ramble on incoherently. (Tony wants me to take that out, he doesnt want people thinking he actually doesnt wear pants. I am pretty sure Donald is the only one who Disney will allow to walk around with no pants.) A little background info Tonys parents have a home in Naples Florida. Being typical Canadian snowbirds, they spend most of fall and winter in Florida, and head back to Canada in May. They drive down every year, but this year they wanted to have both of their cars down there. So, in January Tony and I drove his moms SUV down for her. That gave us the perfect excuse/opportunity to spend a few days at WDW, which just happened to be the week of my birthday as well! We stayed at AKL and had a great time. So, about a month after returning from Disney, Tony comes to the realization that someone has to drive his moms car BACK to Canada. Hmmm..should we could we again three months later? You bet your bippy( what IS a bippy anyway?) we could do WDW twice in three months! Mind you, I did need a little initial convincing. Should we really do this? Is this normal? Awww heck, since when have we been normal! The fact that it was the buy 4 nights get 3 free deal at the time made us decide that we should indeed go for it! Ok, lets do it. So, we got straight to work in booking ADRs and the resort. We had previously thought we would return NEXT Christmas, and decided on The Yacht Club. So, Yacht Club it is! Trying out the different resorts is probably our favourite part of the Disney experience. Our first trip was waaayyyy back in 1994 when Tony and I became friends. We stayed at the Caribbean Beach Club. Our second trip was in 2000. We stayed at The Contemporary Resort. We took a WDW break in 2005 and decided on a cruise of the Eastern Caribbean. Ummm, lets not discuss that trip. Lets just say it lacked the Disney Magic and leave it at that. After the cruise, I thought my travelling days were over (long story), but I got talked into another WDW visit, this time staying at the beautiful Wilderness Lodge. You just cannot beat Disney at Christmas. I have to admit that Christmas is not my favourite time of year. However, being at WDW during Christmas with all of the beautiful decorations and the Disney magic has managed to turn this grumpy, bah-humbug-scrooge into a Christmas lover once again. Whodathunkit? This leads us to our last two WDW trips of Animal Kingdom in January: We named these fellas after our cats, Bailey and Marty who also lie around together all day and "chat". Here are the real Bailey and Marty. See the resemblance? The view from our Savannah room Here I am enjoying my morning coffee and drumroll please ..our first stay at the Yacht Club and my first trip report ever! I have waffled back and forth with the should I or shouldnt I do a trip report. Afterall, does anyone care about what two 37 year olds without kids do at WDW? Well, we do the same thing the rest of ya do just without the screaming, temper tantrums, vomit and crying! Wait, we did do that. Just kidding! Well, if I havent scared you away yet, you may as well stick around. I promise not to be as long winded for the rest of the report. We have lots of food pics, lots of resort pics and many of the same pictures you find on EVERYONES trip reports! Wait. I dont have a cliffhanger. All the good trip reports have cliffhangers, you know, to keep you readers coming back for more! Lets see. Will Carol manage to stay healthy on vacation for a change? Will Tony finally realize he is surrounded by kids and run out of Magic Kingdom screaming in horror never to return? Will Tony FINALLY be able to beat Carol in mini golf? Stay tuned to find out. If that isnt enough to keep you coming back, I dont know what is! Well, how about our itinerary? This is a list of what we PLANNED to do (as you read, you will see a few changes to our plans).
