Hi there!! And welcome to my latest Pre Trip/Trip Report! I am SO excited about this report for a few reasons... But first, introductions are in order! I'm Jess, 27 who loves Disney. This will be my 12th visit to WDW. I had several stays at CBR with my mom and dad in 3rd, 6th, 8th, 10th and 12th grade. Then I've been going with Blake, my now fiance staying at All Star Music, Sports and Pop every year at Christmas time since 2005. So, this is our 6th year in a row going together in December. I'm an Aquatic Biologist at an Aquatic Ecotoxicology lab. We recently moved back to my homestate of Maryland from Virginia Beach this past May for our new job. I have my Master's in Biology, which I just graduated this past May as well! So, obviously I love the Little Mermaid and Finding Nemo..my past job I was an Aquarist and did stuff like this for a living... I miss it, but definitely love being closer to home (about an hour away now). Next up, there's Blake. We've been together for 7 1/2 years. He also has his Master's in Biology. And you will most always see him in pictures more like this Or this And this too The boy likes to fish, what can I say... Thankfully, when we moved in May, we both were accepted as Aquatic Biologists at the same company, so we work with fish, and then we fish and then we eat fish. We love fish..almost as much as we love Disney Last year, our 2010 Christmas trip, the link can be found here Blake proposed to me at the Boardwalk Resort in front of the lake at sunset..here was our first picture together. So needless to say, Disney holds an extra special place in our hearts now. So what's up with the Trip title? Two plus two? Well two, being the two of us. But this trip, we have two extra guests! The first one being...my mom! My mom and I have had a rough go the last 7 or 8 years. Unfortunately she has had some addiction problems (prescription) and we were not civil for a while and it was a very rough time in college for me. Thankfully, she has straightened herself out the last 2 or 3 years and we decided to invite her along! The best part is that, she hasn't been in 9 years, since my 12th grade graduation trip and has never been at Christmas time, so I am so excited for her to experience it! And finally, we have...Stuart! Also known as Stu..this is Blake's stepbrother. I love Stu to death, he is the biggest little kid ever! He hasn't been with us since our 2006 trip. He has never stayed on property at a Disney resort before. And so that mom and I can have time alone and Blake will have time with his step brother, it's a perfect fit! And my mom loves Stu too, completely drama free and just a fun guy to be around! So....the resort details, dates, etc...up next!
