    We are home! :sad1:

    We arrived back last Monday (8th October) and what a MAGICAL time we had, we just both cannot believe how quickly those 14 days went... :confused3

    So to bring back that Disney magic, I am looking forward to sharing our holiday and memories with you all, so lets begin...!

    Quick overview:

    The Cast:

    Me - I am Kat, I'm 25 and this is only my SECOND trip to WDW (I know, I know). My first trip was in 2000 with my parents and I barely went on anything so this trip will be like my first time at WDW.

    Thats the thing about WDW - it always makes me cry happy tears! From the first time we were there I just fell in love! We got engaged there, had our honeymoon there and brought back the ultimate pixie dust - our DS :) We're bringing him back for his first trip (of many I hope!) in May :goodvibes Reading your TR has been excellent, thank you for sharing and I can't wait to read the rest :)

    I wish I was going again! Maybe in a few years! :sad:

    I LOVED reading them before we went. It kind of gave me an idea of things not to miss etc!

    Are you going to write one? ::yes::

    That is sooooo true! I have been thinking about it a lot lately and about how I cant wait to go back again in few years (fingers crossed) :hyper:

    I keep trying to get Karl to consider a Disneymoon but I haven't quite convinced him yet...I'm working on it though...:thumbsup2
