    Hi Everyone!!
    I am new to writing trip reports. I love reading others so I thought I would give it a try.
    Let me introduce my family:
    Me: Laura, 34 full time mom and part time office manager for a small roofing company. I have been to Disney World about a dozen times. My parents took us for the first time when I was in 5th grade during April vacation.
    DH: Andy, 36 awesome dad and sheet metal mechanic. He is the best husband and father to our two girls.
    DD: Isabella, 5 soon to be 6. She has been to disney 3 times. She will be in first grade in the fall. Loves dancing, school, arts & crafts and anything disney. Her favorite princess right now is Ariel
    DD: Olivia, 3. She has been to disney 2 time. She will start pre - school in the fall. Loves dancing and playing with her babies. Her favorite character is Tinkerbell

    We will be traveling April 16/17 to April 24/25. The dates depend on how much time my DH can get off from work. My DH and I will be celebrating our 19th wedding anniversary while we are there.

    My parents (aka Nona and Papa) and my sister and her family (DH and my niece) will be accompaning us.

    We have had so many trips planned over the past year, but had to cancel for one reason or another. Our family has had a rough past year and we really need this trip.

    I cant wait to share everything we have planned. I have my trip notebook ready and some things allready bought for the girls. Once I figure out how to use everything I hope to update often!

    Thanks for reading!!

    We finally got to take the girls to see Toy Story 3 this morning. Everyone on the Dis was totally right about the movie. It was great and Lotso was not so nice. I thought at the end he may redeem himself, but he didnt :( I'm really surprised to not be hearing about kids going up to him and kicking him in the shins for what he did to Andys Toys.

    Here are the girls ready to go with their Jessie shirts on:

    Bows I made them for 4th of July and they just so happened to match their toy story shirts:

    I have also been to Target to get some planning materials. I always like to have a folder for all my paper notes etc and index cards.

    I also have been collecting some Disney clothes for the girls as things go on sale this summer. This picture is Isabellas clothes, but Olivia has the same, only in her size.

    Thats it for now!!

    Happy 4th of July!!!!

    Well, Disney extended the free dining, so of course I had to call the travel agent (thanks Becky for Angela's info) to see what the prices look like. Well it was going to be a significant difference, so.......

    We are going October 25 - 31!!!!!!!

    I cant wait!!!

    Our itinerary so far looks like this:

    Monday 10/25: Arrive Orlando around 10:30 am, check into Port Orleans Riverside. Epcot at night. Eat: Teppan Edo 5pm

    Tuesday 10/26: Olivias birthday. BBB appointments: 9:10am Castle for lunch 12:55pm Downtown Disney at night. The girls can make their own treats and t - shirts

    Wednesday 10/27: Hollywood Studios am 1900 Park Faire for dinner for Andy, Laura, Isabella and Olivia then to Magic Kingdom. My parents have a date night!!!

    Thursday 10/28: Epcot am Parents take the kids and date night for Andy and I!!!!!

    Friday 10/29: Magic Kingdom am Breakfast Crystal Palace Animal Kingdom Extra Magic Hours. We have never stayed at Animal Kingdom past noon, so we thought it would be exciting to see what it was like for late afternoon/evening

    Saturday 10/30: Hollywood Studios am Magic Kingdom pm Eating at California Grill

    Sunday 10/31: Depart for home :(

    What do you guys think????
