    Hello there! A warm welcome to my readers, new and returning alike. If you followed me over from my pre-trip report, you already know what’s gone into this July-August trip. If you haven’t read the pre-trip, well, here’s your chance! The actual trip is about to begin, so you’ve got plenty of time to catch up! It's right here: My Life on the DVC Blacklist



    But if you just don’t want to deal with all that, it’s okay. I can break it down quickly: I’m V and I’m taking a 10ish day trip to Disney World with my sweet, 7 year-old son Leo. We’ll be meeting up and spending oodles of time with our very good friends (who we just so happened to have met right here on the DIS!) It’s going to be great! :banana:


    As for the title of this report… I got me an iPhone not long ago. I love it. I adore it. I keep it with me night and day. I write long-winded sonnets in its name and caress it lovingly as I whisper Precious… our Precious… we loves our Precious…

    :rolleyes1



    Okay, it’s not that bad. But I do really, really dig my new toy. It does it all! Aside from all-purpose daily functions, it’s become quite the theme park touring tool. I’ve tested it out at our local Busch Gardens park, as well as over a long weekend at WDW, and I’ve found a whole host of applications – or Apps, in iPhone speak – to make vacationing easier and more fun.


    THERE’S AN APP FOR THAT!!!
    :cool1:



    This trip report will feature a new App for each installment, and I’ll start with the first right now: Twitter. I gave Twitter a whirl back in May and had a good time tweeting from The World. I think it was fairly well-received, so I’m doing it again! You can follow me here:

    www.twitter.com/Disney_VLo

    FYI, I have it set to “Public” so you don’t actually have to join Twitter or become an official Follower to see my tweets.


    I’m all packed up and ready to roll in two days; be back soon to continue the report!
