Only Disney Magic saved us from Tropical Storm Beryl, Misplaced Diamonds, Attacking Windows, and Fantasmic Forgetfulness Ok, so that ^^ up there ^^ is my real trip report title, but of course it doesn't all fit in my title line Hi! My name is Jenn and my best friend Sam and I traveled to Disney World May 26, 2012- June 1, 2012. We had 5 full days in the parks and two half days! This trip report will tell you all about our girls adventure to the World. As you can probably tell from the title we had a few mishaps and a BIT of rain. Although we did have a few stressful moments, the Disney magic more than made up for it and we had the time of our lives! I hope that you will follow along and laugh with (or at) us as I tell you all about our trip! If you are interested, I did write a PTR and here is a link to that (its also in my signature): PTR First, lets start with some introductions of the cast!!!! The first cast member is: Me! (Im the one on the right! Just in case you couldnt figure that one out ) I am 24 years old and as you can tell from my username I live in Kansas. Yes, I have seen a tornado; No, I dont know Dorothy I recently got my first teaching job and will be teaching 7th Grade Math starting in August! I am very excited and somewhat TERRIFIED!! Other than work, I love going shopping, out to dinner, to the movies, and to sporting events. I played tennis in high school and college, so I like to play a match every now and then. My most recent and loved hobby has been dancing. I like to country dance and Ive known how to two step forever, but my cousins Brice and Kyle, who are twins and about 3 years younger than me, have been teaching me how to country swing dance! How fun is that?!?! Ok, anyways Before this trip, I had been to Disney World only 1 time. That first trip was also with Sam in May of 2009, and my addiction began. Now, I had not been a totally Disney deprived child. We used to live in Colorado and Arizona when I was younger. Thus, we lived closer to Disneyland and I went once when I was three and about 5 more times during middle school. Also, growing up on Disney movies really helped with my love of everything Disney. Ok, enough about me. The next cast member is: Sam! Sam is my best friend and weve been best friends since our sophomore year in high school. She is also 24 years old- Im 2 weeks and 1 day older . Sam is a 4th grade teacher and this coming year will be her 2nd year teaching. She is hilarious and we can be completely crazy together but we accept that our mutual craziness makes for the perfect friendship. I am a major planner and Sam likes to go with the flow. This works out well when we travel together because she pretty much lets me take over the planning aspect of our entire trip. Sam has been to Disney World many times. She has been with her family when she was younger a few times, once before with me, and her and her husband Victor have been once together. She was the one who initially suggested and wanted to go on our first trip together. I blame her for my Disney addiction. However, Sam has never been to Disneyland and she seems pretty jealous that Ive had the opportunity to go there. We have talked about in the future that we should take a trip there also. I mean, doesnt Cars Land look super cool!!! Plus, I never went to California Adventure Park, I was only ever in Disneyland Park. Ok, enough about future trips, lets get back to THIS ONE!!! I am so excited to tell you all about our trip! It was crazy and we pretty much laughed our way around Disney World! I took a ton of food pictures, which Sam rolled her eyes at, at first, but by the end of the trip she was volunteering to take a picture of her own food. ( Probably so I wasnt standing up and leaning over the tables to take the pictures!) But hey, you cant do a TR without FOOD PICTURES, right?!?!? We also met a TON of characters on our trip! I cant believe all the ones we met! We even met a few that I had heard were retired from doing appearances! How exciting is that!!! Alright everyone, hold onto your ponchos, keep your hands and legs inside the vehicle, and grab a Dole Whip (seriously can I have one RIGHT NOW???) here we go!!!!!! Continued in next post!
