Welcome to my pre-trip report. The official title of the trip is. . .Because If We Dont Take Abby Gabby To Disney She Is Going To Disown Us And Frankly I Am A Little Scared Of Abby Gabby And Would Much Rather Have Her On My Side Than Not And Lets Face It As A Four Year Old She Is Really Smart And If We Dont Take Her Soon She Is Going To Go With Out Us A December 2013 Disney Trip. Lol, so welcome to my pre trip report. Yes I know its a little early start a pre-trip report but Im doing a lot of sacrificing so I can make this trip & I need some form of entertainment so bear with me. Please feel free to post suggestions & comments along the way. I would love to have as much fun on my on thread as I do some of the others I read on. The Cast: So first up who am I? Well Im Beth and Ill be hosting this report. I am 32 (33 at trip) single and love to spoil my niece & nephews & Im roommates with my cousin/sister. Yes we are from the south no its not that kind of relationship. Lol my cousins & I have always been really close like sisters. My favorite character is Donald Duck followed by Chip & Dale. My favorite park is Epcot, and my favorite ride is Carousel of Progress. Next up is Emily my cousin & roommate. Emily is 33 (34 at trip). She also loves to spoil her niece & nephews. Emilys favorite character is Tinkerbell & Animal. Her favorite ride is POTC & her favorite park is MK The two of us will start this adventure on Nov 30th we will leave out early that morning for our 9.5 hour drive down after a quick stop at Starbucks aka Starbuckies (the name Abby gave Starbucks). We are not a 100% sure if we will stop in Palm Coast Fl for the night or drive on into Orlando and check out an offsite hotel weve been looking out. As of right now we are looking at driving on into Orlando so we can check in early Sunday morning and hit the parks. So what about the Niece & Nephew I mentioned? Well lets start with them. First up Is Laura she is 31, Sister to Emily, Wife to Mark & Mom to Logan & Abby. Her favorite Character is Piglet. Her favorite ride is RRC. We will also celebrate Lauras 32 birthday while we are on this trip. Next is Mark 30 (31 at time of trip). He of course is husband to Laura & Dad to Logan & Abby. Mark loves the classic rides. He is a fan of the star wars movies & Animal. Logan 8 (he will be 9 in 5 days) Logan is my little Disney buddy. This will be his 5th trip to the world. He is starting to get into that pre-teen to cool stage, but when hes with his aunties at the Disney store he tends to forget that. He of course loves the marvel heros but is also a fan of Buzz & Cars if hes not to cool by time we go on the trip. J Last but not least is the start of trip report Abby 4 (5 at the time of the trip). Abby has been to the world once before but she was only 1 so of course she doesnt remember it. This kid is so determined that she is going any penny she sees on the side walk she picks up for Disney. Abby is a princess girl her favorites are Rapunzel & Belle. Funny side note story. I was talking with Laura this morning and she was saying something she is watching is live at Disney and they had the characters there and Abby started jumping up and down saying someone please take me to Disney. Mark & Lauras plans are basically the same as ours although they are traveling from a different part of the state. Im not sure yet on what their plans are for the travel day. As of right now they also plan to stay at Pop although plans may change if the market changes. They are going to try to do whatever they can to get Abby G to Disney. So part of the fun in a trip for us Disers is the planning. I have my nice handy dandy notebook Ive been working on. I even made one for Mark & Laura for Christmas. There is a little cooler than mine but it has stuff for the kids in it. In the next few post we will get more to the plans weve made so far and what it is to come. Im going to try and space these out, but knowing me and my excitement youll get a lot of updates at one time.
