This is my first attempt at a trip report, so I hope everyone will bear with me. Ive read some of the greats Twinkie Mama, VetteChick, tiggerbell, and ZZUB to name a few so I hope some of their greatness has had some influence on me. Oh - and thanks to Mike at DH's work for coming up with the title for this...afterall, how true is that!! First, let's introduce the cast in the beginning for my fourth trip to the World: Myself (36) - OBSESSED with DW and all that is DW. DH (38) - Not obsessed and tired of hearing about all things Disney. Thinks WDW should be a relaxing vacation (yeah right - does he not remember who he married?!) We headed down for 12 wonderful nights 9/22-10/4. Im a planner Ill admit it upfront. Hello, my name is Ty and Im an obsessive compulsive WDW planner. I started planning a year and a half ago, just a mere six months after we got back from our 2004 trip. Im still trying to figure out how I got DH to agree to go back so quickly yes, unfortunately going back in under two years was quick for us. If anyone has any tips to change that, please feel free to PM me . I now have to ask, does anyone else have Disney Dreams, where youve managed to forget everything you know or what you were supposed to bring? I had dreams where a restaurant changed and I thought hmmm gotta post that on the disboards! Now not only am I dreaming about things forgotten or changed once we got there, but Im dreaming that I must post to the disboards. Wonder if thats a sign that I spend too much time on the disboards NAHHHH I also have to mention that I started what became know as my Disney Bible (a binder I had.) It grew from ½ inch to 1 inch to 2 inches and could have easily gone into a 3 inch. My back wont know what to do not having to haul it around with me everyday. I had copies of everything you could think if in there, except one minor detail, a map of the property that will come back to haunt me later! Since I seem to live on the disboards, I knew early on about the change from 90 to 180 days for ADRs. I called exactly at 180 days to get all my ADRs which I did. Then at 30 days and 14 days, DH FINALLY looks at what Ive been e-mailing him for SIX months and says where is this restaurant or where is this? WHAT??? Do you not know that it is free dining and these ADRs were made months and months ago. I told him Id try and miracle upon miracles I was able to do a little rearranging and get his requests in. We also decided that we would drive down. Im afraid of flying, but have flown in the past and as recently (we do not travel much) as 2004 to see the sticky fingered mouse. I somehow talked DH into driving and thought we were set. Then the more I thought about it and wasnt sure how many vacation days DH would get, I started to think, maybe we should fly. I even sent DH fares to book for us, but he never did. I finally asked him and he said he wanted to drive as we had not been on a road trip since our honeymoon a few years ago. OK cool we are driving. Well leave the evening of 9/21, get as far as Southern Illinois and finish up the next day. Good we are set . Ummmm not really now my ten thousand posts on I-65 through Alabama vs I-75 through Atlanta began. I even ordered Dave Hunters along I-75 which he graciously rushed to me so I could use the hot off the press book on our trip. All we knew for sure was we would take 57 through Illinois and decide what to do when we hit Nashville. OK its now the Tuesday before we leave, and DH decides: a) we should be flying ummmm not happening we leave in TWO days!!!! Then b) well drive straight thru as he does not want to leave on Thursday night. OK HOLD ON! Weve had plans for months and now they are all going out the window, I guess I should have seen this as a precursor for what would happen on the rest of the trip! Up next...UMMMM - Since when is AL Tornado Alley?????????
