    Welcome to our fabulous pre-trip report!!

    I am excited you have joined us! Let me introduce us!

    [​IMG]


    We are a couple of Disneyholics who have made it a priority to be able to go see the mouse each year! We were married in Disneyworld at Shades of Green back in 2010 before Josh deployed (A wedding, Two First Timers and 3000 photos). Our second trip came after Josh finished a year long deployment (The Hero and his Princess return - dining) and our last trip (Let's be Spontaneous) was booked on a whim about a month out!

    Here's the thing, none of these reports were ever finished :badpc: I was in school, working full time, and it just didn't happen.

    HOWEVER - This report I PROMISE I will finish. I have a new job, I'm not in school, and the husband now works opposite shifts from me, so I don't get so distracted!

    So how about a little back-story on each of us?

    [​IMG]

    Me : Beth, twenty something, love to cook, scrapbook, and tear apart the older house we bought to make it more beautiful! I work at a tiny creative type college doing billing and financial aid. My co-workers think my Disney obsession is funny and encourage it! This will be my 5th trip. I started my love of Disney right after I met Josh, My sister (hence the screen name) took me on my first trip to the work (My First Trip Trip Trip Report) I love to eat, and often do things that cause me to say "yeah, I'm 5"

    [​IMG]

    Him : Three weeks older than me, (and no, I don't let him forget that) likes to metal detect, try new foods, and puts up with my insanity. Josh works in law enforcement and is also a citizen solider with the National Guard. This will be his 4th trip, and he constantly complains I am one ahead of him! :rotfl: Josh loves all things Toy Story and Muppet's. He also loves to try new foods, and new places to eat! He is all about the details, and love to share facts he reads about Disney

    This is Lucky, also known as Dog-Dog, and the dog behind the dog sitter in the title. Lucky is our baby (we also have two cats, but they don't require the same level of attention) Our last trip opened with a trip the emergency vet because Lucky had become sick. Here you can see him cuddle on the the couch with my favorite castle blanket :rolleyes:. I couldn't book our trip until I was sure that our amazing house sitter was available. While it isn't the same sitter who helped us when he was sick before, she is just as amazing (perk of working at a college, it's easy to find someone to house sit!!)


    When - April 16-24, 2013
    Where - Animal Kingdom Lodge
    How - AMAZING airline sale / My sister had a baby and can't use her DVC this year, so she rented us her points!!

    I take it that Monday you are at HS....? We really like Mama Melrose's. Although we had lunch at Backlot Express and that was pretty good.

    I'm pretty sure you meant your sister had the most beautiful baby in the world, who has already dressed up like Minnie mouse before she was six weeks old, blessing you with this trip. J/k. I would totally steal your thread if I knew how to post pictures :)

    Hi! I hadn't seen you around much since your last TR. I saw you posting on another one and noticed a new link so I figured I'd stop by.

    I like your plans. Le Cellier, Be Our Guest, Via Napoli... looks like you've hit some of the ADR's that are a priority for me!

    Just Whispering Canyon, but the skillet isn't available at lunch and you've got your dinner plans all taken care of.

    And you already have Ohana on there to take care of all your binge eating on meat needs. :rotfl2::lmao:
