This was a trip of firsts: 1st Anniversary celebration, 1st DVC stay, 1st split stay (at two 1st time resorts), 1st backstage tours, and 1st time doing several attractions we had skipped before. We learned that there are a lot of new to us things about WDW that we loved. We also learned that we had avoided some things for a reason and that we can usually trust our judgment. But I guess introductions are in order before I get too far into this. Im Joyce. Ive loved Disney as long as I can remember and have been to WDW a bunch of times, and Disneyland a couple of times. Vacations are the highlight of my life (not that I dont like my job, but time off from work is a wonderful thing in my eyes!) and WDW is my place of choice to spend them. I love to travel in general, though. Unfortunately, a series of terrible plane rides is causing a slow but steady fear of flying. Not sure how many more times Im going to be able to fly places Ben is my husband (of just over a year) and also loves (that may be too strong of a word, but itll do) Disney. Hes way more outgoing than me and is a lot of fun to travel with. During this trip we learned that he is Minnie Mouses type and that Mickey better watch it! Ben will be reading this and will remind me of things I left out, Im sure. We were just at WDW in September, and we became DVC members on that trip. That story can be found in the trip report in my signature. This anniversary trip was changed a lot in the planning process. The full story can be found in the pre-trip report in my signature, if you care to take a look. But as things ended up, we stayed at Kidani Village from 5/1-5/8 and Old Key West from 5/8-5/9. These were both new resorts for us, and made for a very different kind of trip. It was a jam-packed adventure that left me completely exhausted by the end. We met some colorful characters, ate a lot of delicious food, and learned a few fun facts about love bugs (the male is the smaller and they are considered beneficial insects because they eat decaying plant matter when in the larval stage. They dont sting or bite but can cause problems clogging up the front grill of vehicles.) I cant wait to relive the trip through this report and hope that youll enjoy following along! Since I had a bit of writer's block in starting this, I think I'll leave off there for now. But here's a little game called 'Where in WDW was this picture taken?': Any guesses?
