OK, since last year's trip report sort of morphed into a pre-trip report for 2011, I decided maybe I should get this under way before it became this year's trip report too! I'll start this one off the same way as the last one....... with a picture of our favorite Fairy Godmother. If you didn't read along on last year's trip report, take a moment to check it out: December 2010: Don't Read this TRIP REPORT If You're a Princess Hater! I detail our history with the best Fairy Godmother ever. And we were lucky enough to find her again this time: Homecoming by mom2rtk, on Flickr I am Janet and that's my daughter Katie, age 11. Like every other trip we take, we didn't just make a plan and go with it. Anybody who has known me for long knows that's just not the way we do things here. No, there were schedule changes and cast changes along the way. But I was really happy with the final plan. My husband came along for the first 4 days, then Katie and I had 3 days to ourselves, and we met our best girlfriends for the final 2 days. It really was the best of all worlds. We also have boys age 16 and 18 who scared1 shall we say.... don't care for Disney the same way we do.......... so they stayed home. OK, I'll say it. They're Disney haters. The 16 year old still had a week of school, including finals and an ACT to take in our absence. The 18 year old finished his first semester of college the day we left.
