Welcome to my first ever PTR! I hope to keep this report organized and interesting! I am surprised at how nervous I am! Well, the only thing I can think of to combat my nerves is to jump in, so here goes! As we all know, the best trip reports always start off with introducing. The Cast This is me, Danielle (in case you couldn't tell from my screen name ). I am a thirty-something work at home Mom. I prefer to think of myself as a full time C.O.O. (Chief Operations Officer) who answers to 2 C.E.Os (more on them later). I am blessed to run a small business in my spare time (read: after the kids are in bed). The money from my work allows me to pay for our Disney vacations. Disney is special to me because I grew up in the Orlando area. We moved from Florida when I was a teenager. Disney World is part of my fondest childhood memories. I want that for my children as well. Then there is DH. This is NOT DH. Unfortunately, DH does not like to be in photos. He goes so far as to actually make crazy or irritated faces when he's photographed. He likes to have his photo put on the internet even less than he likes being photographed. Out of respect for him I won't post any photos of him. DH and I have been married for 12 years. We spent the first 4 years of our marriage living in LA. During our honeymoon years we visited Disneyland a lot. DH is not nearly as excited about Disney as the kids and I. He's a good sport and goes along with my Disney plans with a cheerful spirit. I am thankful for that! The first CEO of our family is my DS, Buddy. Hes 8 years old and still hasn't lost his Mamas Boy nature. His first trip to the House of Mouse was at age 5. We took him to Disneyland for 3 jam-packed days. We went commando style on that trip. That was before I knew that DISboards existed (now I can't imagine life without it)! I had always dreamed about the day I would take my kids on their first magical trip to Disney. Turns out this guy is not into the magic; he's all about the thrill! At 5 he couldn't get enough of ToT, BTMRR, and Space Mountain. I guess he did grasp some of the Disney magic because he was super excited when we went again for his little sister's first trip. He's looking forward to this (his third trip) with just as much excitement! Rounding out our family is the other CEO, my DD, Cupcake. At 4 years old she is the baby of the family. However, her personality is larger than the rest of us combined! Her introduction to Disney was just before her 4th birthday. We went to WDW for a fabulous 10 day trip (with advice from countless DISers)! I was blessed to have the *magical* experience for my children that I had always dreamed of. She's starting to outgrow the magic and is ready for the thrills along with her brother. Well, that's it for the introductions! Please stay tuned for all the magical details!!
