    June 7th - Pre Trip Report

    Hi Everyone -

    Our family is headed back to Orlando tomorrow morning. Anna and I will be leaving in the morning and Kim will be joining us later this week. It seems like it has been a while since we've been to the parks. Our last trip was over New Years, and after that trip ended I felt a little burned-out from the parks. We had visited the parks quite a bit in 2009 and I thought I needed a long break. However, around April, I was feeling the need to get back to the theme park capital of the world. Now, I'm crawling up the walls waiting to get back to Central Florida. Finally tomorrow is the day.

    Anna and I will be in Orlando for 2 weeks; 10 days at Disney World, possibly 1 day at Kennedy Space Center and 4 days at Universal. We've got quite a bit planned including the Hoop-De-Doo Review, Catching some of the Summer Nightastic events, Star Wars Weekend 4, and the grand opening of Harry Potter.

    Anna and I are giving the Disney Dining Plan a whirl again. We are staying at AKLV and during our stay we have 4 nights worth of dining plan. The last time we did the Dining Plan we felt it was too much food, but I figure for 4 nights we should be able to handle it. The ADRs we have planned include Chef Mickey's, Cape May Clam Bake, Mama Melrose, and the Tusker House character breakfast. Once Kim arrives we are going off the Dining Plan and using our Tables in Wonderland 20% discount. Other ADRs we have scheduled are the Hoop De Doo Review, Ohana, Teppan Edo, and Mama Dellas at Portifino Bay. We may make some other reservations along the way.

    We're hopeful to see some of our friends during our visit. If anyone wants to meet-up while we're in Orlando please send me a PM and we can get together. Whether its just for a quick ice cream treat, lunch, or a walk around World Showcase just let us know. :)

    I should mention most of what I'll be posting in this trip report will be photos and possibly some video. Through my IPhone I'll be able to post live photos during our day in this thread. In other words, most of the photos you will see in this trip report will be live, up to the second photos with captions and descriptions of what is happening in the parks and resorts. I'll even post what the lines and craziness looks like at the WWoHP grand opening.....It should be every bit of crazy too. :laughing:

    We are scheduled to arrive in Orlando around 12:45PM tomorrow. I'll post when we arrive. So get ready for a lot of photos and info from Orlando. "See you real soon!" :) ::MickeyMo

    Subbing for the next 7 days until I get there!!

    I am not sure if I will have my lime green Mickey on my bag for Universal, they might get a bit offended, but just listen out for two twenty-one year old Brits, one looking like she's on a mission, the guy looking more than slightly overwhelmed! :laughing:

    Maybe we'll bump into each other!
