Hi everyone! Can y’all keep a secret? This is to be a surprise trip for my kiddos and I don’t want to spill the beans to just anyone so I’m sharing my secrets with all the Disers out there willing to read along. First up let me introduce us… I’m Lori, a 30-something mom to two wonderful kiddos. I am a full time student who started this past June and is going into Medical Assisting. So far I really like it and am enjoying being in school again. I, of course, will be the surprise holder and trip planner of this trip. I enjoy Disney and love the magic it brings to my kids. My favorite characters are the classics…Mickey and Minnie. Up next we have my beautiful 6 year old, Lindsey. She is little Miss Talkative but also very shy. She is currently in the 1st grade and loves this school year. Her nickname is Princess and the name fits her like a glove. The Princesses are getting to be a little babyish to her but she secretly still likes them. She absolutely loves Tinkerbelle though and can’t wait to meet her in person. Lady and the Tramp would have to be her absolute faves though. Lindsey LOVES animals (sometimes a little too much!). This is her with my cousin's kitten, Mango. And ending my crew is my 4 year old little man, DR. He is a mama’s boy through and through. He currently goes to preschool/daycare and we’ve had our share of separation issues but he likes it more and more each day. He has a list of characters he loves and Disney movies that he is into. Cars and Toy Story would have to be his favorite movies but character wise Mickey and Pluto are his go to guys. This was taken at our local pumpkinfest type thing. He liked Donald the Duck pumpkin the best and wanted to pose by it I have us booked in a preferred room at Pop Century from Friday, September 10 until Sunday, September 19. On Friday we will just do a room only and on Saturday we will start our package plan. I have us on the regular dining plan with 9 day base tickets. Now, I am a moderate to deluxe kinda gal, but when my DD saw the pics of Pop with the HUGE Lady & Tramp I knew that would be a good place for us. I’m hoping to request the 50’s section with us looking at Lady or Tramp and be on the top floor. If free dining is offered this year though, I will probably upgrade us to either POFQ or CBR, or hey maybe I will save some money and keep us at Pop. We’ll see how it goes closer to the time free dining is announced. We haven’t been to Disney since September 2007 and I’m really looking forward to our return. We may have some other family members join us (my dad and brother) but it depends on them and if they want to go and have the funds. Up next...September & October movie nights and the beginning of a plan. Hope y’all enjoy and will help me keep the secret from my kiddos!
