    Have you ever planned an entire week in Disney for 12 people and 2 months before your trip have 8 of those people back out? We got to the point when we were just gonna scrap our part of the trip all together but we hadn't been to Disney since March of 2011. And while that doesn't sound that long, it felt like forever to us. Not to mention it was going to be our son Christopher's first trip to Disney.

    We looked at different dates, we checked prices, we called and emailed our travel agent over 100 times (I have all the correspondence to prove it), we made spreadsheets, and wrote notes on scrap paper and we came up with this: We were going no matter what. Even if it was just the 4 of us.

    I guess intros would be good at this point because you might not know who we are. Or maybe you do and just want to see a few 'new' pictures of the kids. :lmao:

    First we have Christopher. He is 15 months old. This is his first trip to Disney. We have trained him to love Disney from the start. His whole room is Mickey mouse. I know the first time he sees Mickey he is just going to love him! :rolleyes1

    Next we have the princess, Juliana. She is a very smart, energetic kid. She loves her baby brother and is like a little mother to him. She loves Cinderella and all things Disney. Her favorite ride is Test Track.

    I can't forget about my DW Melody. She is a great mother who works hard and would do anything for her family and friends. She tried to turn me on to Disney when we first met but I refused.

    Then there is me, Tim. I went from refusing to goto Disney to being the Disney planner of the family.

    This is the story how we turned a 'Disney trip of epic proportions!' with friends to 'The last trip the 4 of us ever take to WDW' :scared1:

    Yes, I'm surprised too. ;) It's only because your kids are so darn cute (good thing they look like their mommy).

    Great intros...and great pictures!
