Welcome!! Or, as they say at Animal Kingdom Lodge - Jambo!! We are back from a great trip to WDW and I'm ready to start a new Pre-Trip Report! Sit back, grab a dole whip, and enjoy the ride!! First of all, lets cover the basics. The Cast Me - Amber - 21 I'll introduce myself first. I'm Amber, and I'm 21-years old. I'm a stay at home mom to a beautiful Princess named Ava, a loving wife to my best friend Richard, and a college student majoring in Nursing. I am studying to be an obstetrical nurse and can't wait to finish college and begin work. I am a true Southern girl who loves her grits and sweet tea and can't understand why in the world Walt Disney World doesn't serve their tea sweetened! I was born and raised in South Carolina and love it here!! As far as Disney goes, the Princesses are of course my favorite, but I also love entire Winnie the Pooh gang, and of course Mickey and Minnie!! My all time favorite Disney movie would have to be The Little Mermaid. Hubby - Richard - 23 Next is my hubby. He is an amazing father, and an even more amazing husband. Richard works for the South Carolina Department of Corrections as an officer and thoroughly enjoys his job!! He is also a member of the national guard. He is a true Southern boy who loves hunting, fishing, and trucks! His favorite Disney character is Goofy, and his all time favorite Disney movie is Cars. Our daughter - Ava - 4 months Next is our first little Princess. Ava Brooklyn was born December 20, 2008. She has brought a whole new meaning to our lives, and we love her so much! She already has such a personality and I can't wait to bring her up to love Disney as much as I do! She's already taken her first trip to WDW - she was 10 weeks old. Clearly she was too young to get much out of it, but I like to think that she enjoyed it!! She will be 15 months old on our next trip and I can't wait!! I would have to say her favorite characters are Mickey, Pooh, and Tiger - all of which she has stuffed animals of and loves them!! My mom & dad - Suzanne & Doug - ?? This will be my mom and dad's first trip to Disney ever!! They have never had the opportunity to go, but we are taking them with us on this trip!! My dad is more laid back about it, he's happy to go, but doesn't care *that* much. My mom is SUPER, SUPER, SUPER excited about going and talks about it on a daily basis. I'm very excited for them to go and experience the magic! My dad doesn't really have favorite Disney characters or movies, but my mom's absolute favorite character is Eeyore!!
