Hello Everyone!!!! Thank you for joining my pre-trip report!!! You are all in for a long ride- as we are looking at going back to WDW sometime in September 2010- maybe even the last week of August. First, let me introduce you to my wonderful family. First there is me, my name is Janine. I plan all of our trips and love everything Disney. DH- Bill- goes along for the ride. I took him and DS to WDW August of last year. We ended up in Tropical Storm Fay and it rained constantly the whole 4 days is there. At one point on the shuttle bus he said "Disney World, where misery is made". Talk about wanting to crawl under my seat!!! I think he secretly likes Disney though DS-Austin- my little 3 year old (soon to be 4) little man. He loves everything Disney as well. He was 2 and 1/2 when we took him last year, and surprisingly remembers alot. He continuously asks me "When are we going back to Disneyworld Mommy?". I can't wait for us to take him back!!!! I started my trip report (my very first pre-trippie, thank-you, thank-you) because I needed a pre-start on that Disney Magic. Sharing information and stories with others just brings it out even better. Its like living in a fantasy world. Anyway, I have been thinking alot of how I want to plan our next trip. First of all, everything is depending on free dining or not next year. If we are able to get free dining- we are going to stay 6 days/5 nights Mon-Sat. If not, we are going to stay 4 days/3 nights Tues-Friday. I have used both the regular ddp and QSDP- and we will DEFINITELY be taking the QSDP. I love the free mugs, I love the 2 snack credits, I love going to eat at my own convenience, I love not having to spend so much extra money on tips, I just plain love the QSDP On to the hotel. Last August we stayed at ASMO and loved it. Austin was really into 101 Dalmations at the time, so we went preferred and requested the Dalmation building. I recently went to WDW in June with some gf's from my work for a few days and stayed at POP. I think we will be booking at POP Century for our next trip because I believe Bill will love all of the POP culture, and Austin will love all of the huge icons!!!! I am going to book non-preferred this time, but request the 60's building Parks. We will definitely be doing the park hopper-so worth it. I love going to one park for Early EMH, and ending the night in another park with fireworks. So, that is everything so far. It won't feel "official" until I shell out the $200.00 for the deposit, but at least I know what I want to do. f When we went in August of last year- I booked in February I believe. And I booked our plane tickets as well. I think I am going to wait a little bit this time because Spirit Airlines has really been coming up with some great deals!!! Well, thats all for now. Stay tuned for my next post on our 1st Disney Night.
