Hello all ! I'm Kristie and I recently discovered the DIS a few weeks ago. I've been lurking in the shadows and devouring your trip reports ever since lol. So without further ado, I've decided to start my own pre- trip report, TR to follow, and join the fun. Here's the cast: DS, who is 17 months and will be visiting the World for his very first time. He's obsessed with Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. Here he is last year on our trip to Florida. We didn't think he was old enough for the Parks yet since he was only 6 months old but we took him to Downtown Disney and he had a blast playing around there. A little bit of background, my grandmother, another Disney fanatic, lives about 25 minutes away from WDW in Kissimee, so we we visited her last year and went just to Downtown Disney. Here is a more recent pic of DS. Then of course there is me, Kristie (23). I have been a huge Disney fan my whole life, and have been to WDW more times than I can count. I used to stay at my Nan's house in the Summer and was an Annual Pass holder for awhile. Unfortunately in recent times, between graduating college and having a baby I havn't been to WDW since 2008. i know the horror! So I am very excited to get back there and enjoy the magic with my son. Here's the obligatory pic of me. This was last summer in Hawaii. Next up we have, DH (26). He has only been to WDW once and that was 12 years ago so this will be an exciting trip for him. He isn't as big of a Disney fan as me but he enjoys the characters and is also a big Star Wars fan. We have one problem, DH is extremely afraid of all thrill rides. I know he is dead set against ToT, but I'm hoping to at least get him on Big Thunder and maybe even Everest. Here is last year in Downtown Disney. We are going with our good friends Joe and Loriann. (Sorry no pic) They don't have kids yet but since they have never been to Disney I invited them to tag-along on our trip. There is also my lovely mother Debbie. She lives down in Boca but will be joining us for one or two days. Here she is last year There is also my Nan, who will be meeting up with us for some of the trip as well. She lives 25 mins away and is an annual passholder. She's been a huge Disney fan for the last 80 years! Here is me and Nan a few years ago at her favorite restaurant Cracker Barrel. We must fit a trip to Cracker Barrel in this vacation somehow! There is also my Dad. He lives in Florida as well and will be meeting up with us for a day. So there's my huge cast. It feels like a lot of people but because I have so much family in Florida they all want a chance to see us when we come down. I'm very excited about this trip and can't wait to share more. We will be going January 15 to 20, so we are leaving exactly two weeks from today yay!
