    If you are just now joining us… well, just keep reading! Things might start off a little confusing for you, but you will see how it all plays out in the end! :lmao:

    Am I REALLY about to start my second Pre Trip Report???? :confused3 WHOA! :scared1: I AM SO EXCITED!!!!!

    Okay, but lets be honest. This trip isn't set in stone. I'm not calling a Cast Member and booking anything just yet. Nope. Gotta wait for my husband's employer to say "Hey, you have done an AMAZING job- let's have you come back next year!" :thumbsup2 We think he has done a great job, and we have adjusted to life in the midwest fairly well. Considering that THIS Georgia Peach does NOT do cold weather. :guilty: At all. Thank GOD that the weather has been pretty fair so far. :cheer2:

    Oh… wait, you don't care about all that stuff! You wanna know my details, don't cha? :yay: Well… let's get down to it!

    When: Nov 18- 24.
    Where: Well, now, that's the Million Dollar Question!
    Who: Awe! Thanks for asking!!!!

    My DH, Corey; ODD, Cortlyn; YDD, Catie and ME!

    My DH had never been to Disney before I dragged him with me (if you are interesting, there are links in my Siggy to my PRT and TR from Dec 2010!). And he totally drank the koolaid! :cool1: Watching him and my daughter see the Castle for the very first time was AMAZING.

    Now, this would be Catie's first trip to Disney… outside of the womb! :rotfl: See… she tagged along on that first trip, I mean, from the start, she has to be a part of EVERYTHING!

    Sigh… let's see. This time we will be traveling with a 4 year old and a 19 month old. :eek: YIKES! What am I thinking??!!?! Taking a 19 month old?! I'm thinking, I wanna get back down to the World, so I can ride all those rides I missed out on when I was carrying that extra passenger the last time! :rotfl2: Don't worry. Things aren't gonna surprise me like that again.:rolleyes1

    The thrifty side of me, of course says "Um, Pop was wonderful. No reason to change what ain't broke!" Buuuuuut… then I remember, it's not like we're gonna luck out with a Rack Room Discount or Free Dining promo- right? :sad2: Plus, this time we have a wee one. While Cortlyn did much better than expected, you just don't know how things will go. So… I am researching villas and one bedroom suites. :scared1: WOW. Can't say that I expected that… and chances are, we may not book them. BUT it's just nice to have a quiet space for the baby if we can swing it. I'm looking at ALL my options this time.

    Your Saved Offers

    Disney's Port Orleans Resort - Riverside, 11/18/2012, $3097.45
    Disney's All-Star Music Resort, 11/18/2012, $3713.93
    Disney's Coronado Springs Resort, 11/18/2012, $6850.61
    Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas - Kidani , 11/18/2012, $4830.01


    WHOA! Those are some hefty prices! Of course, we went in 2010 for CHEAP, because we went on a low rate weekend PLUS scored free dining. :dance3: Not gonna happen this go round… :sad1:

    So, what do you think? Stay safe and familiar with our beloved Pop or go all out with a 1 bedroom suite??? Suggestions? I'm totally open to hear what you have to say! :goodvibes

    I wish you could change your dates just a little earlier. I plan to arrive on the 8th and leave the 11th.

    I know! I wish I could either move it up or down. But we are fairly set with those dates. It's gonna be more pricey that week too, since it is falling over a holiday with no discounts in site. As long as Hubby is directing a marching band, we have to be around for all the football games. :rolleyes: I LOVE me some football, but… I just don't want to be committed so much!!!!

    OMG! How incredible is that? So tell me, just what DOES a Pin code look like? I wouldn't know one if it jumped up and bit me in the "you know what".

    Well, It's a flier from Disney.:rotfl: It is yellow cardstock and has a boardgame type clip art on it. It says it's for 30% off select resorts, so I'm not sure if it is anything super special, but Jen is looking into it for me! Corey is working tonight, and Catie is giving me fits with bedtime, so it's kinda nice to have someone else do the legwork… :rolleyes1

    I just see it as a sign! God and Mickey want me to travel to DWD! :yay:

    I loved going to WDW when my girls were 17 months old. It was so magical letting them take in everything.
    Can't wait to hear about the rest of your plans.

    Hello! You posted on my Dec PTR and I noticed your Thanksgiving PTR link, so I wanted to pop over and say hello.

    Thanks for the suggestion of The Plaza. I just checked out the menu and it looks pretty good. I think I was always thrown off b/c it was sandwiches, but they do look yummy, so that might be the way to go :thumbsup2

    I am also going to read your Dec TR so I can get some ideas for Christmas at WDW.

    Looking forward to hearing more, and I really hope your PIN code works out for you!!

    Following you over from the BBC again. Since you Dec TR got me hooked on these boards I better jump on board again. Wish I"d have gotten around to starting a PTR, I'm a bit intimidated by some of the HTML stuff like embedding a link into my siggie. I know there are tutorials on the welcome board though so I can't really use that as an excuse. Maybe I'll be brave when I get back.

    Curious and hopeful that the PIN will work....:wizard:

    Good! Did your girls nap in the stroller or did you take breaks? Cortlyn needed her naps in the room, and I'm thinking Catie will be that way as well- BUT she comes with me to work now and sleeps in the PNP in the back of the shop. :confused3

    The Plaza is really good! It's a nice lunch and the milkshakes are AMAZING!! :) Hopefully you will like it if you chose to go there! :thumbsup2

    YES! I hadn't stopped to comment on your thread to let you know!!! I'm so excited!!!! :goodvibes

    YAY!!! You need to do a Trip Report over here! I'll help you! :yay:
