    I went to WDW without the other Golden Girls this time! I went with my sister, my niece and my brother in law.

    My pictures are not ready yet, but I took my Canon 60d and I had my Samsung S3 that I used for pictures too. My total was 8900. My sister and her husband took a small Canon point and shoot. I don't know how many they took. When I get their pictures I'll get started. I shoot in raw and I need to process each picture, so that can be slow going sometimes.

    Who are we?

    Me! The biggest Disney Freak from Prince Edward Island, Canada. (Yes, I'm from where Anne of Green Gables was "from" and the Road to Avonlea tv series is located). Also known as Dorothy in my other TRs. My real name is Tina, and I am a French Immersion teacher. Currently I teach kindergarten, but I've taught most grades between k-12. I have a huge family, with 9 brothers and sisters, 16 nieces and nephews and many aunts, uncles and cousins! I love my family, I love my job. I am very involved in my church, and sometimes people think I work there or that I am a nun. Nope! LOL I love all the parks, but I feel Disney the most in Magic Kingdom. Hollywood Studios has a way of getting me all excited and pumped though too. That's the first time I've even come close to saying that I have a favorite park! I usually don't pick between them. I wouldn't want to hurt the other parks' feelings. I don't have favorite rides, because I love them all, from It's a Small World and Carousel of Progress to Space Mountain and Big Thunder Mountain Railroad. From the walking trails of AK to Dinosaur to Expedition Everest. (I could do that for each park, but now I'm getting lazy!) I love photography and I especially love taking pictures at WDW, of the rides, the shows, the parades, the details and the general atmosphere. I love to read and watch movies and tv shows. Once Upon a Time is currently at the top of my tv shows, along with Supernatural.

    I took my niece, who will be called "Princess" for this trip. The trip was mainly for her. It was supposed to be 1/2 the time and just the two of us, but it grew. My sister and her husband are not planning to return to Disney, but they have said that it might be worth it to go to Epcot again sometime if they are in the area! Hahahaha She is 14, heading in to grade 9 (9th grade for all you Americans) and is very sweet, most of the time! I won't say more because she'll get mad at me if she reads this! She ended up being at the "in between" stage. She told me she was so excited to be doing Disney and was gung ho to do it all with me, but then she realized that she likes the thrills more and the other stuff was boring. She loves her cell phone and texting/snap chatting/instagramming/face timing her friends! (Did I forget something there? Note I did not say talk to them on the phone!)

    My beautiful, young looking, oldest sister came along too. For the sake of the TR, she will be the Queen, since she is the Princess's mother! She has an older son who didn't want to come with us. He is 18 now and too old to travel with us!

    My brother in law is a very even keeled gentleman. I don't think I've once seen him get annoyed or raise his voice at anyone. He will be the King. But not this one: http://i3.mirror.co.uk/incoming/article2687148.ece/alternates/s2197/Elvis-Presley.jpg

    [​IMG]from raw-6226 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

    The King is on the left, the Princess in the middle and the Queen on the right. Just in case you were not sure!

    I guess since we have a King, Queen and Princess, and I'm not going to be the Prince, that makes me the court jester? Hahahaha

    This is what I looked like a year ago, you'll see me soon enough, once I get the other pictures and get started on the actual TR section!

    [​IMG]from raw-8766 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

    I have previously stayed at Pop Century, All Star Movies, All Star Music and one night at Art of Animation. My niece had (years ago!) asked me to save All Star Sports for her, so I did. We spent July 21-29 at Sports and July 29-Aug 5 at POR. I had tried to talk them into CSR or CBR or even OKW, because I had never been at any of those. My sister said that she was not enamored with those resorts but really liked POR. It was not hard to say that I could stay there. I loved it when I stayed there in 2012!

    The King and Queen would be renting a car for part of the time, so we would be using it to visit Sea World, Busch Gardens (never been), Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure (HARRY POTTER!) and to go to Mass and to do some outlet shopping. They had some of their own plans as well on the days that the Princess and I were planning to be at Disney on our own.

    Hi Tina, finally getting in on the ground floor.

    Incidentally, I have absolutely no problem calling MK my favourite park. No problem at all.

    Welcome, Rob!

    I love that you can call MK your favorite. To be completely honest, I was also the one who couldn't pick a favorite in New Kids on the Block either! :lmao:

    Can't wait to read more! I've always dreamt of visiting PEI! I love Anne of Green Gables, from the books to the movies. Someday I'll get there, as well as Vancouver. Dying to visit the gardens. Epcot is my favorite park, and Canada is my favorite pavilion! :)

    Excited to see those 8900 images and some photos from Riverside which is my home resort at WDW. We stayed at Riverside...I mean Dixie Landings for the first time back in 1990. Great memories. We then visited many times and Riverside was always are resort choice because we had a family of five. We did stay at the Grand Floridian our last time and staying on the monorail is a dream. Let's get this party started Tina!

    Joining in!!!

    Claire and I are big fans of Once Upon a Time too and can't wait for the new season!

    I am excited to see all your pictures and hear more about Universal too. I do love it there, and it's so hard to chose between there and Disney sometimes, as Disney usually wins, but Universal is a close second!!!

    Joining in! I was hoping to find another good TR to follow tonight. When I saw your niece with that Dumbo pillow pal I knew I found a good one. I just bought that pillow for my 2 year old son at the Disney store today! They were 50% off and I couldn't pass it up for less than $15!

    Can't wait to see all your photos.

    Oh fun! If you ever come here, we could have a Dismeet! It totally makes me laugh that your two places to visit in Canada are PEI and Vancouver, the West Coast and East Coast. :)

    It was fun and busy! I will get sharing soon!

    Don't you love taking photos at POR? I love that! I need a solo trip and now that I have a big enough suitcase again, I could take my tripod. Then it would be totally a photography trip.

    GF is amazing too! I loved the convenience of the monorail. I only stayed 3 nights and we only went to Epcot for one day, but I still loved it!

    Welcome! I know all about Once, it's just so entertaining, and fun to see the different twists on the traditional fairy tales. I bought a new wallet, but I was thinking more along the lines of Once more than the Disney version.

    Universal was fun, but my favorite part is the Harry Potter. I don't think I'd bother if it weren't for that! It's just so well done!

    I love that Dumbo pillow pal! You got a WAY better price than I did for it! ;) Welcome, I'm glad you are here reading along!

    Hey! Welcome! Did you hear how well the NS Dismeet GTKTW fundraiser did yesterday? $13000!!!!

    Welcome! I'll get started soon, and there will be many pictures!

    Welcome! Love your name! ;)

    Hello again! Welcome!

    I just thought I'd explain a few things that have been happening here at home!

    I live in a house with my parents, my older brother and my uncle. But this summer, my brother's son and his ex mother in law came for a few weeks. My nephew slept in with my brother and we gave his wonderful grandmother my room to use since most of that was when I was in Florida. Then my sister, her friend and their dog (I don't like when people bring dogs to other people's houses so that really bugged me... especially because it is not yet trained and is using the bathroom all over the place!) are here for 3 weeks. And another brother and his three kids are here for 3 weeks. Then my other brother, his gf and her daughter just showed up yesterday! Those 3 are sleeping in my sisters camper down the street. My brother and the three kids had one spare room, and my sister, the dog and the friend were in the other spare room. I was delegated to the loveseat in my living room/storage room/computer room in the basement. (It's wear I store all my Disney purchases and my things that I've bought or kept since my days living alone).


    Then yesterday morning my nephew and his grandmother just left for Saskatchewan (aka Scratchon according to my 3 yo niece! LOL) so I got my bed back.

    Yesterday I went to a Dismeet/GTKTW fundraiser in Halifax with 2 of my sisters and 2 of my nieces. One sister and niece live about 20 minutes away, so when we got home late, and knowing that my sister had to come back to town in the morning for a class, I talked her in to spending the night. So I slept in my bed again, but with 2 other people!

    I am definitely looking forward to sleeping alone in my own bed tonight for the first time in over 3 weeks!

    Welcome to life with a big family! :lmao:

    On an extremely positive note, the fundraiser was a complete success. We raised $13000!!!!

    Joining in and looking forward to seeing your photos. (I took over 6,000 on our trip in June (also in raw), so I can relate to it taking a long time to get through them all :cool1: )

    Yay! I am glad to see your new TR! Subbing in now. The other day I was on here and was wondering if you were back. I knew you had a long trip and wasn't sure your dates. Can't wait to hear more about your trip. :)

    Wow! I'm an only child so these big family runarounds make my head spin! Glad you got your bed back. :thumbsup2
    Wish we could have made it to the GKTW fundraiser. We just didn't have anything left in the budget to go down for it. Oh well, maybe next year! Glad it was a success!
