For those of you whom read my PTR, I apologize it has taken me so long to start this report. For those who havent, here's the link' http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=2728071 To quickly recap for those who havent. Although DW and I took DS to The World 8years ago when he was only 18mo old and we planned nothing more than staying at a nearby timeshare and buying a 4 day park hopper pass. Seriously thats it. Therefore we have called this our Honorary First FAMILY trip. Before I get too far let me introduce our cast of characters (and believe me they live up to that name). I guess Ill start with myself: Name: Matthew Age: 29 Favorite Character: Aladdin Favorite Park: All of them Favorite Restaurant: Chef Mickey's Next would be DW who has put up with my shenanigans for almost 10 years now. Name: Sarah Age: 28 Favorite Character: Tinkerbell and Piglet Favorite Park: MK Favorite Restaurant: CRT And the kids. Name: Ian Age: 9 Favorite Character: Stitch Favorite Park: Epcot Favorite Restaurant: Coral Reef Name: Morgan Age: 7 Favorite Character: Cinderella Favorite Park: MK Favorite Restaurant: CRT Name: Allyson Age: 3 Favorite Character: Tinkerbell Favorite Park: MK Favorite Restaurant: CRT DW and I had been planning this trip since Feb 2011 but didnt tell the kids. Even though it is rather cliché now, we loved the idea of the surprise and wanted that memory. I will try to post a link to the video in the next chapter. We stayed at POR for 6 days at the end of Sept 2011, bought 5 days worth of park passes (non park-hopper) and a dining plan. So if youre up for the ride (and I sure it will have its ups and downs since Ive never done this before) I invite you to be our guest.
