Keep reading below for the Pre Trippie.. if you're interested! I just had a panic attack... My ticker says ONE MONTH (and four weeks... which is almost like two months... ) but it still says ONE MONTH! I need SOOOO much help from everyone... I hope you're ready for an extremely interactive pre trip report. Strap in! Here are the basics, ready?... CAST: Me My name is Susie. I am an elementary teacher who lives in the suburbs of Indianapolis. I love all things artsy fartsy... dance, music, singing, theatre, etc. I am married to a band director, which (in Indiana) basically means I'm a single mom. But I let it fly since my DH is as big of a Disney freak as I am. Favs at WDW: RnRoller Coaster, Voices of Liberty, Soarin', FotLK DH Matt is his name. The scariest most intimidating teddy bear you can imagine. People always thinks he hates them, but that's the mind game he likes to play. He is obsessed with Disney World because of the high standard they hold themselves to (among other things). He's a music fanatic (mostly in the symphonic realm... what a band geek) Favs at WDW: Soarin', Illuminations, Voices of Liberty, Expedition Everest DS Ty will turn 7 in July. He's humungous for his age, bigger than most of my third graders... but is still a baby (and a total mama's boy) at heart. Slowly becoming infiltrated with the Disney obsession. Favs at WDW: Test Track, Mission Space (green side) and Buzz Lightyear. He also loves the chicken strips at Hurricane Hannah's at BCV. DD Shae will be an 18 month old when we take this trip. I'm scared to death about returning with some awful toddler horror story, but I'm excited to death about seeing her reaction to all of the sights and sounds. She already recognizes and names Mickey, Minnie, and Ariel. (She has red hair, I had to get her into Ariel, didn't I?) Favs at WDW: the last time she was there, she was 6 months old. She really enjoyed It's a Small World, and interacting with characters. Here are some pics of the cast: This was our family pic last Labor Day weekend. This is how goofy DH can be at almost all times: Makes you want to stay tuned, doesn't it?! Here's a SLIGHTLY more updated picture of DD: She's the one with the Pebbles hair. I promise, it is my ABSOLUTE GOAL to include as many possible pictures as I can with this TR. I know when I'm reading other TRs, I just LOVE to see pictures. So, that's what I'm striving for. BASICS of TRIP: Travel dates: Saturday, September 1-Wednesday, September 5 Flights: Direct from Indy to Orlando on NWA, already purchased Magical Express already booked Accomodations: Boardwalk Villas, One BR Villa Tickets: DH and I have APs. I need to renew mine when we arrive. Will buy MYW ticket for DS. DD is FREE still Food: We will be ordering groceries for delivery to our villa. We plan on eating breakfast and most dinners at "home". We have one ADR for a character breakfast at O'Hanas I have SUCH a long way to go. But I need help. Your first assignment is to help me locate the grocery service that will deliver to Orlando. If you can help me, I'd be very thankful. I don't have much time for research! Let the pre-planning begin!
