Hey there good people of the DIS! Welcome to my first trip report to make it off my hard drive. Pretty sad actually pages and pages of fantastic trip reporting only available to me. Sigh. Oh well, turning a new leaf and this one is making it off the hard drive and will be complete! So the cast of characters..such as we are, me cough-cough year old work from home mom. Yes, I get to work in my bunny slippers at home writing training courses and being the woman behind the curtain for my companys Twitter feed. Some days this is a great thing; other days not so much. I miss being in an office with people. Grass is always greener. My partner in crime is my DD11. I am very happy to report I have successfully brainwashed this child to be a Disney fanatic. She loves the place almost as much as I do. She is a dancer, and hopefully one day shell be dancing at Disney! Mama could use the free admission! In a guest starring role on this trip is one of my besties from back in the day and her family. And shes a fellow DISer. I am proud to say I am responsible for her addiction as well, and frankly think Mickey and company should spot me a DVC membership for my efforts. Im well on my way to converting my BIL and SIL, and even may have my other BIL over his hatred of the place (ugly incident with a CM and my niece). My efforts deserve a DVC membership, right? I digress though. (which you should all know right now, I totally love going off on a tangent. I come by it honestly. You should hear my dad and my grandma. Those two..wow! Talk about diverting a conversation. I have to carve out a good two hours just to talk to my dad on the phone because I know Ill spend about an hour talking to him, and another hour trying to hang up. Oh well hey, look I did again..tangent!) Considering how much both my friend and I (and our families) love Disney you think wed do the World together, but sadly that is just not the case. Most of our trips we miss each other by days. This trip we were there at the same time for one day. This is what happens when you live in different states and your kids are on different school schedules. Such is life. Well miss each other again by a day in November. Were shooting for meeting up during Spring Break for a few days. So stay tuned and see if that little adventure comes to fruition! Now that all the players have been introduced, here are the stats for the trip: Dates: Sept 30 Oct. 8 Resorts: Pop Century, AKL and Pop Century again! ADRs- Hoop Dee Doo Revue (ya hoo!), Boma, Chef Mickey MNSSHP on 10/6 which wasnt really decided until 10/2 ,but that is neither here nor there. Well thats it. Glad to have you along for the start of our second year as AP holders!
