How is one convinced to vacation with family? How is one suckered into planning and preparing a vacation for 10 people? And not just any vacation, a DISNEY vacation at that. Now a true DIS-er knows that answer they volunteer, if not insist, of course! This is the story of how it happened, why it happened, and what happened. But first let me give you a little background. Some of you may have read my last trip report, Wheres Waldo, if you have not, please, read it, learn it, know it. Well, upon returning from our last Waldo adventure, DH and I decided . Wait, wait, wait . Let me be honest. I decided we should return to WDW, as our 6 days in the world was not enough. I know, lets try a 10-day vacation! When we returned from our last trip, my Dbro and his family asked all about it and of course, we gave them all the details. That was it, the boys (Dnephs ages 10 &14) didnt want to go to Hawaii in summer of 07, they want to go to WDW. We all convinced Dbro to change plans and now were all set. All except Waldo and Dmom (the Enabler). Now if you read my first trip report, you will know all about Waldo and his antics. You would know that Waldo wanders, has bad hearing and is a complete know-it-all senior citizen. Ah, my gene pool! I went crazy having to baby-sit Waldo last year for 6 days, and I was not looking forward to babysitting for 10 days this year. He complained for weeks after our return home about how sore his legs, feet, arms, legs, eyes, etc. were. I truly didnt think hed ever want to go back to WDW. However, when he heard we were heading back to "The Mother Land", he wanted to joined us. Ok, fine, Waldo BUT, you can go only if you commit to renting an ECV and staying in it. We will rig one with a kill switch so, should you wander, your ECV will stop. Or a homing device or a giant flag with an arrow pointing to Waldo. We may even rig you with an electric collar type contraption and should you wander.... ZAP! That is HOW it happened. Up next... introductions all around. Bring on the lunatics! ETA: There's a lot of funny conversation going on in this pre-TR, so I've added an Index for those who just want the "meat" of the story, if you will. Personally, I like the fluff, it makes everything funnier!
