Hey everyone!! Welcome to my TR! We just arrived home this past Sunday, and I'm not ready to join the real world yet - so the best way to relive the Disney magic is by writing a trip report! Index About Us - 1st post Beginning the Trip Downtown Disney Magic Kingdom - morning Magic Kingdom - afternoon Magic Kingdom - evening Hollywood Studios - morning Hollywood Studios - afternoon/evening Epcot - Morning Epcot - Afternoon Epcot - Evening Islands of Adventure Back to Epcot Animal Kingdom - Morning Animal Kingdom/Downtown Disney About Us I'm Becky, just turned 25, and I'm the big Disney fanatic. I fell in love the first time I went when I was 8 years old. The obsession has only grown in recent years. When planning my Disney themed wedding, I came across the DisBoards and made a ton of friends here. Now I'm an annual pass holder and will be going to the World 3 times in 2013! In real life I'm an SAT/ACT tutor and just finished grad school with my master's in library science, trying to find a job in that field (which is proving to be pretty difficult!) My husband, Jason. He is a software developer and a computer/video game nerd. He puts up with my love for Disney, but he is nowhere near the fan that I am. He has an amazing memory and because of that he doesn't like doing things that he's already done (with the exception of thrill rides). He's most excited for new experiences. My dad. He has been my traveling companion for years, since my mom doesn't usually like to travel. The last time he was in WDW was in 2005, when we took a father/daughter trip my senior year of high school. He was very excited about this trip! He is an architect and also does woodworking in his spare time. My mom. She is a bit of a homebody and doesn't like to travel, but she did get excited for this trip! Her favorite park is Epcot and the World Showcase, and she was looking forward to the Flower and Garden festival. She hadn't been to WDW since our family trip in 1996, so she had never been to Animal Kingdom before! The Week We stayed from Sun. 4/21 through Saturday 4/27. Here's our schedule for the week: Sunday - Downtown Disney Monday - Magic Kingdom Tuesday - Hollywood Studios Wednesday - Epcot Thursday - Islands of Adventure and dinner at Epcot Friday - Animal Kingdom The Resort As a wedding gift, DH's uncle had gifted us some of his timeshare points. We stayed off property at bluegreen's The Fountains, which is a gorgeous timeshare and not too far from Disney! Why So why and how did this trip happen? Well, after my honeymoon I knew I wanted to go back to Disney. I had told my family all about our experiences and my dad expressed a desire to go back. I knew it had been a long time since my family had been to Disney, and given my love for it that was something that needed to change! I proposed the idea of a trip to them and offered to let them stay for free using the timeshare points. Originally the trip was also supposed to include my brother and sister, but they ended up having to back out due to work. I also plan to do a thorough dining review and will share the link to that as well once it's up!
