I already have a TR going ( SWW, BCR & Technically, we were literally on Mars! ) for our May/June trip but wanted to start a PTR for our September trip. We have been going to Disney the third week of September since 2006. We love it. Last year I attempted to do a live trip report(Live from BWV Sept 2012) while we were there but it got to be more than I could handle as I wanted to update every evening and most evenings I was just plain exhausted. So this year I thought I would do a PTR followed by a TR that I could take my time with and do it right. First up as always the cast: Me(Lisa) - I work fulltime in IT but have the luxury of working from home. My only hobby is planning vacations. I prefer Disney but am happy as long as I have a vacation in the works. My favorite park is Hollywood Studios with EPCOT a close second, favorite attraction is Soarin and favorite character is Jiminy Cricket.

All of his hobbies revolve around sports and Boy Scouts with my DS. His favorite park is Hollywood Studios, favorite attraction is RnR and favorite character is Grumpy. 39493300017 by Disneyalwaysn4ever, on Flickr DS8(he will be 9 on the trip we will refer to him as Buzz) - He loves Star Wars, video games and Super Heroes. His hobbies usually involve a screen of some kind(TV, Tablet, Laptop etc&) although he is showing a real interest in Boy Scouts. His favorite park is Hollywood Studios, favorite attraction is Star Tours and favorite character is Buzz Lightyear. Photo0295FourBySix by Disneyalwaysn4ever, on Flickr DC(Disney Cousin Lets call her Tink) - My partner in crime. Tink has been to Disney more times than she can count. Her first trip was as a baby and she has gone back at least once(sometimes twice) a year since. She has way more energy than me and keeps me going on these trips. Her favorite park is Magic Kingdom, favorite attraction is Splash Mountain and favorite character is Tinkerbell. Photo0222 by Disneyalwaysn4ever, on Flickr ( She's the one in the grey) Tinks DH(Lets call him Swat) - I think his favorite park is Hollywood Studios, favorite attraction is RnR and I have no idea if he even has a favorite character(probably not). Photo0563FourBySix by Disneyalwaysn4ever, on Flickr ( he's in the grey sleeveless shirt) Tink/Swat's - DS9(We will refer to him as - Gunz) - He loves the great outdoors. His hobbies are hunting & fishing. He finally got to the point on our last trip where he was willing to ride most everything except RnR which was a big leap from the previous year where we could not even get him on Soarin. I think his favorite park is Hollywood Studios, favorite attraction in ToT and favorite characters are Chip and Dale. Photo0300FourBySix by Disneyalwaysn4ever, on Flickr Tink/Swat's - DS8(We will refer to him as - Stitch) - He is very much like his brother. He loves the great outdoors. His hobbies are hunting & fishing. He is the daredevil of our little ones. I think he rode Everest the second he was big enough. He came very close to getting on RnR last September so I suspect we will have no trouble getting him on there for our upcoming trip. I think his favorite park is Hollywood Studios, favorite attraction in ToT and favorite character is Stitch(or at least it was the only one I could get him to take a picture with the last trip). Photo0304FourBySix by Disneyalwaysn4ever, on Flickr Tink/Swat's - DD6(We will refer to her as Ariel) - Our only girl since my DD21 stopped being able to go because of college). She loves everything about Disney and anything to do with the princesses. Her hobbies are dressing up like a princess and she has almost all the princess gowns. Her favorite park is Magic Kingdom, her favorite attraction is the M&Gs with the princesses and her favorite character is Ariel. Photo0289FourBySix by Disneyalwaysn4ever, on Flickr Tink's Mom and my aunt(we can call her Aunt P) - She is the Disney patriarch of the family(although I am the planner). She has been going since her children were little(which explains all of Tinks trips). I think she has probably been over 50 times. Her hobby is sewing and taking care of her grandkids. Her favorite park is Magic Kingdom, favorite attraction is the Electric light parade and I am not sure who her favorite character is but suspect it would be one of the fab 5(I will ask her the next time I seen her) Tink's Dad and my uncle(we can call him Uncle F) - Aunt Ps partner in crime. He has also been going since his children were little. His hobbies revolve around taking care of the 20+ acres their house is on and taking care of his grandkids. He also loves Nascar. His favorite park is Magic Kingdom, favorite attraction is the hall of presidents and I doubt if he has a favorite character. p&f by Disneyalwaysn4ever, on Flickr Whew! So that is our crew for our annual September trip. I will post more about our plans later as this update has taken longer than I expected.
