Hello! Almost a year and a half after I went to Disney last(almost 2 years by the time we're there) I finally get to plan a new trip! Except for actually going, planning is my absolute favorite part of every Disney trip(and going doesn't beat planning by much). Some back story for our trip: About 6 months ago we moved back to my hometown in Indiana from upstate New York. I had been having Disney fever since about 2 days after we got back from our last trip in Dec 2011, but money was a little tight(which is one of the reasons we moved back here). A couple months ago DH and I decided that we were comfortable enough financially that we could start planning a Disney trip. I was so excited, because that meant I was going to get to take my little sister, Morgan, for the first time. My parents aren't big travelers so I didn't get to go until after I'd turned 18 and I am bound and determined for that not to be the case for her(she'll be 14 when we go). We decided on December, because we really enjoyed it the last time we went. The decorations are beautiful and the weather is perfect for us. However, we didn't want to go as late in December as we did last time(12/18-12/23) because the crowds were unbearable towards the end. So we decided to do a horrible thing and take Morgan out of school for 5 days. I know most people think it's bad, but honestly my sister does well in school and hardly ever misses and I know she can and will make up the work, so we'll be going December 1-7. We originally booked the trip in early March and then about a week later we found out I was pregnant and due on November 21st. That meant cancelling the trip because no way I was taking a newborn to Disney. There was also no way to move up the trip because we wouldn't be able to come up with the money to pay for the trip we were planning(we want to go all out for Morgan's first trip) any earlier. We were all heartbroken, but DH and I quickly got over it because we had been trying to get pregnant for a year. Unfortunately at my first prenatal appointment during the ultrasound we discovered that the baby didn't have a heartbeat and I had to have a d&c . It was a devastating loss for us, but we've started to heal. We decided that since we have to wait 3 months to try again, that even if I got pregnant right away at that point I would be 6 months pregnant at most in December, so we're going to book the trip and there's no going back now. Even if I am pregnant we'll just take it easy, and even though I'm so upset about how things worked out, I'm definitely looking forward to having one more Disney trip before we have a baby. Onto the cast for this trip: This is me. I'm Emily. I'm a 20(21 in less than month) year old student and Disney addict. I've been in love with Disney ever since I was little, bit never got to go to Disney World til my DH(BF at the time) took me back in 2010 to propose. My favorite characters are Eeyore, Belle, Chip, Dale, Mushu, and Stitch, my favorite park is MK, and my favorite ride is TOT. This is my wonderful DH, Daniel. He's 32 and works in insurance and as a content producer for a couple different websites. His parents took him once as a child and we've been to Disney 3 times together. His favorite characters are Stitch, Piglet, Mickey, Figment, Arthur(from Sword in the Stone), and Tigger, his favorite park is MK, and his favorite ride is Space Mountain. Former Cast My baby sister Morgan(athousandtries is her disboards username, she commented below) is the newest member of our cast. She's 13(will turn 14 in September) and will be in 8th grade next fall. Her favorite characters are Lilo, Stitch, Handy Manny, Snow White, Mulan, Mushu, and Sleeping Beauty, but since she hasn't been to Disney yet, so she doesn't have a favorite park or ride. Morgan has decided that she doesn't want to be away from home that long and will no longer be going with us. This is the farthest out I've ever really planned a trip and I hope to have a lot to talk about, so hopefully I will be able to keep this active until we go in December. Also we plan to do matching shirts for each day of the trip and I will be attempting to make them, so I will post all about that adventure once we get to that point.
