Hi again everyone! I wrote a pre-trip for our last vacation (June 08) but didn't get it finished nor did I go a final trip report.... So here I am, going to be a good DISer this time and tell you about our upcoming trip! The Disney-saavy travelers are: Me - 27 years old and LOVE my Disney vacations! This trip will be my 7th to the World. I've not been at Christmas since 2002 so I'm looking forward to seeing the decorations and everything! DSis - 18 years old. She is graduating from HS in May and is my Disney trip buddy. DFamily - Aunt, Uncle and 4 cousins (who at time of travel will be 16, 14, 9 and 3) If any of your read my last TR, you'll recall that in June 08, my sister, brother and sister-in-law and I went to WDW for 4 days and then did a 3-day cruise on the Wonder. It was a FABULOUS trip and we had a great time. We would have liked going with them again this year, but at Christmas 08, my brother informed us that they were having a baby in July...and we recently found out that baby is a girl! So naturally, taking a trip in June, while 8 months along, was not such a great idea for DBro and SIL. (I will get some pics, I promise I thought I had things loaded on photobucket but alas, I was wrong. I will get to it this week!) My sister and I then thought we would go during her Christmas break from school (and escape the frigid tundra that is the midwest in Winter!) We hadn't booked anything quite yet, and as luck would have it, DFamily said they were going in December and would love for us gals to tag along - sweet! So now, we had a trip planned and in the works. The details are: Leave December 26, 2009 Come home January 2, 2010 Staying at DVC in Animal Kingdom (but may switch to Saratoga if that becomes available) And no idea for ADRs or park days yet Exciting, right? I promise, more details to come as we iron them out. I am also going to copy my buddy CharlestonPrincess and pass the time from now to December with a different "theme" for each month. Now I just have to come up with that theme! Oh, details! I will post more later this weekend. Have a great day, everyone!
