Hello, and welcome to my first ever attempt at a pre trip report! We are headed to Disney this October and I couldn't be more excited. It's the first time for many of us, so we can't wait. First things first, the cast of this adventure: Me (ElisaBethe) and my DH (Chris) I am a serious overplanner. It's is now 3 months in and I have had my toiletries packed for a good while. I know what I am eating at each park. Not just where, but what. Meanwhile, Chris is a real go with the flow type of guy. He thinks vacations are meant to be relaxing and we should do what feels right. He married the wrong woman for that. This is my fourth trip and his second. We have not been since 2008 when we got engaged on the ferry back to our hotel after he chickened out during Wishes. He likes Disney ok, he really likes Universal Studios more, but we are skipping that this trip. I am banned from talking about Disney until one week before our trip, something about divorce if he hears the D word one more time so I use these boards for all my planning. Enough about us! We have two kiddos, Cooper (3) and Anya (8 mos.) Too bad for Anya, she will not be going on this trip. I agonized back and forth, and have decided that Anya has to sit this one out. Don't worry, I will be sure to bring my princess some Minnie ears. So while Anya gets loved on by her Grandma, I will be taking another child, my niece, Bella. Bella is my sister's child, and my sister has decided that she won't be going. My other niece, Juliet has sensory issues and other health concerns, and my sister has decided that she doesn't like to leave Juli for long periods of time. So Bella will come a long to be Cooper's buddy. It's not just this clan going along. We've got some friends coming with us. My friends Andrea and Juan are coming, sorry no pictures of them. They are bringing their handsome little guy, Gabe. He will be 2 1/2 at the time of the trip. Andrea and Juan are also go with the flow types, and have basically left all of the planning up to me. Andrea has not threatened a friendship termination, but she has definitely made it clear I need to shut up about Disney! So all of my planning will be in silence until we get there.
