Hiya Welcome to my PTR! I'm super excited about this trip for a number of reasons. CAST OF CHARACTERS First, there's me, Sophia. I'm the Disney planner of my family. I'm obsessed.....a giant 50 year old that loves meeting the characters and everything about Disney! Next, there's Joe, my DH. He has fed my Disney obsession since the day we met 15 years ago. This is a picture of us NOT taken at Disney. Honestly, there are not too many of these around. LOL HOW WE'RE GETTIN' THERE This trip is a first for us in one MAJOR way. It's the first time that we're driving to our happy place! We did a "test run road trip" this summer and drove from Ohio to South Dakota....about 3,000 miles in the span of 6 days. We decided to take my car since I can bring more stuff back from Disney in an Armada than Joe can in a VW. WHEN Well, this is kind of a loaded question in a way. You see, we are leaving home super duper early on January 25, 2013 and going guess where..............ok, I'll tell ya. To INKEDUPMOMMA'S WEDDING!!!! Woo Hoo!!!! More on that to come. I do though, want to thank the Dis for bringing me such wonderful friends....honestly, they are more like family. I cannot express how awesome it is to find such wonderful people to share things with...Disney or non-Disney. We're blessed with awesome friends. We will arrive at Disney on January 27th and will be home around February 4th. Notice I said "around".....thinking of adding an extra day! WHERE ARE WE STAYING? Once we finally get to Disney, we will be staying at AoA. I CANNOT WAIT to check out this resort. Joe and I have had the opportunity to stay at a lot of different resorts over the years and once this baby was built, I had to book our very next trip there. LOL. Oh and guess what? Inkedupmomma and the family are going to Disney for their Disneymoon! WOO HOO!!!!!!! For those of you that don't know her (how is that even possible?), here is my awesome friend Jenn. We met on the Dis several years ago, and for that, I will be forever grateful. We have gotten super close over the years and have done Disney together a few times as well as visited each other in our homes over the years too. Here is Jenn with Jack. I love this picture: And here is Bob, her totally awesome fiance and soon to be hubbs! He is so dang awesome, it isn't even funny peeps. Believe it or not, this is the ONLY picture of Bob that I have. He's standing here with Joe. Next up is Kayla. She is such a cutie patootie. Here is a picture of her when I first met her: And here she is now: My favorite thing about Kayla is that she loves Disney Nerds, just like I do! Woot! Finally, here is Jack. He too is a cutie patootie. Here is a picture of him when I first met him: And here he is now: Yikes, where has the time gone????? My favorite thing about Jack is his enthusiasm. I just love to see him get excited, especially at Disney. I'm going to post a link to Jenn's PTR here too..... So now you have our intros.....Next up, idk what...but I will think of something.
