It was a complete dream come true for me. My parents saved up for 6 years so that my siblings and I could spend a week at WDW. We must've been the luckiest kids in the world because we had no parents on this trip. Just me at 17, and my siblings at 14 and 13 yrs old. They deemed me as responsible enough On that trip, I didn't know much about WDW at all. We went on a package that also included admission to SeaWorld, JFK Space Centre, and Universal Studios. We stayed offsite and there were shuttle busses that took us to the parks in WDW. We had no idea what to expect at Disney, but still had an AMAZING TIME, despite little to no planning (we planned the order of the parks). This is the three of us at Epcot And this is us at the then, MGM Studios We LOVE funny posing My sister's such a character, I love her After that trip, I came home and went WDW crazy. With no plans to return soon, I found websites like mouse savers and the Dis and discovered that I had missed SO MUCH Ofcourse, going to these sites just made me want to go back MORE, of course. So I started looking at prices and started to get a real sense of how much a WDW vacation would cost. My parents paid for our first trip ever of course, but I was determined to pay my own way this time. So after a lot of research (which I blogged on my livejournal about ), the idea of returning in 2010 seemed more and more plausible. Which leads us to our second character, my DBF. This is DBF, Andrew (21). He'll be turning 22 when we're at Disney. And yes, I planned it that way. That's him and his neice in Taiwan. His hair's longer now too. So, why was 2010 such a great year to return? Well, Andrew graduates this June, and I was going to graduate this August, but decided to spend an extra year getting a minor. It'll also be our 3rd yr anniversary (date-versary?), and 3's my favourite number. So it worked out pretty well. I started planning all of this in 2008, so I would have 2 years to save up, which was just about right. I already have rooms booked (with CAA discount), flights arranged, and tickets bought! We will be at Pop Century from Aug.17-Aug.24, 2010. So come along on my countdown to my favourite place in the world!
