    Alice Kingsley: This is impossible.
    The Mad Hatter: Only if you believe it is

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    At times I thought this trip would NEVER happen, so many ups and downs, cancellations, changing dates/ADRs. It was an undertaking to get this trip to become reality, but it did and it was the most memorable, most magical, most wonderful trip we have ever had. There was only one little thing that stopped it from being perfect…

    Winter followed us to Florida and took up residence [​IMG].


    Before I get any further I guess it would be a good idea to do the introductions, we are Tracy and Bill:


    [​IMG]


    An odd couple in looks (I am overweight, he is rocking a power wheelchair because he has Cerebral Palsy) and personalities (I am a total pessimist, he is the optimist) but we completely click with one another. I turned 41 on the trip; Bill will be 41 in June. We love our dog Ace, our families, the Colts, the Dodgers, and most of all Walt Disney and the World he has created for all of us.


    This was my 8th trip and Bill’s 13th. We had many reasons we wanted to go:


    1) Christmas in WDW is FANTASTIC


    2) Bill wanted to celebrate my birthday in WDW


    3) We were lucky enough to get D23 Magic and Merriment tickets and


    4) Most importantly we were going to meet our DISfriends Oregonmommyof2 and Oregondaddyof 2


    We were so happy to get to meet them in person. I had been talking to Toni (Oregonmommy) for months, texting, yahooing, facebooking etc. Bill had talked to Terry (Oregondaddy) on yahoo and they had played PS3 together. Little did I know Bill had been talking to BOTH of them a lot more than I thought he was, but we will get back to that later in the report. I had also been talking to Terry about the surprise he wanted to spring on Toni for her birthday. It was killing me to keep my mouth shut but I did it.


    I guess I should introduce Toni and Terry (on EE):


    [​IMG]
    Toni is my DBFF (Disney Best Friend Forever [​IMG]) the only things she loves as much as her hubby and her kids are Mickey and Dooney and Burkes Disney purses.

    Now Terry loves Toni, the kids and Bertha his camera. She was always hanging around on his neck, then up by his face [​IMG], ALL THE TIME. I don’t see why Toni isn’t completely jealous.

    So that is us and our special guests, I do hope you join us, I almost called this report: WDW freezing our bums off 2010.

    I will let you know now, I was a horrible note taker and didn’t take as many pictures as I usually do, but I will go with what I have.


    Next installment… Great skycap, a mad family, & the ME
