Hi Everyone! I have tried to do a PTR before, but sadly failed miserably. But, I am going to try again. Maybe this time with it being much closer to the trip I will actually stick with this. This is a surprise trip for my parents 44th wedding anniversary. Luckily, they are no DISers. I will say my dad is in on the secret, otherwise there is no way I could pull this off. They love me, but not enough to drive from N. FL with no real good reason. Background: We are a Disney family. My parents have taken me to Disney more times that I can count and my very indulgent DH has bought us AP and we have spent so many afternoons just wandering around the parks lately. We are local to WDW (which is amazing!). For years my mom has wanted to stay at the GF, and eat at V&A. To make this desire worse for her my DH and I did a Platinum Plan trip back in April and have shared all the wonderful details with my parents. So, earlier this year I proposed to my dad that we should do a family trip again this year, but since my DH is no longer a student we can pay for our half of the trip (they took us last year and footed the whole bill that is where our pictures are from). To my huge surprise he said yes. I was almost knocked off my feet. SWEET! He also said that as long as I kept it reasonable we could do whatever we wanted. Again, WOW! SWEET! So, I got to crunching the numbers. Apparently, everything I wanted to do came in at a reasonable amount when I priced it with the Platinum Plan. So, I cleared it with him, and booked the trip. Dates: September 24-26, 2009 The Cast: The Momma & The Daddy (As I am Southern, they shall always be known by these names.) The Baby & The Babys Boy (DH) I plan on posting the game plan in the next post. How many things to you think we can shove into 3 days?
