Hello, everyone! I was inspired to start a PTR today by reading the reports of several of my fellow June 2013 travelers. I have become so Disney obsessed planning this trip, that it only seemed appropriate to dive all the way in! So, here goes nothing... Let's introduce you to the cast. First, me. My name is Jess and I am 32. I am a social worker for an adoption agency and run our China waiting child program. I do that part-time and just love my schedule of only working three days, so I can be home the other days with my boys! I love to scrapbook, although haven't in a long time. Perhaps Disney will spark that creative bug again! I am an avid reader. I am obsessed with Starbucks (so the addition on Main Street was seen by me as VERY positive news...). I haven't been to Disney World since 2005 and we have never taken our kids!! Favorite Disney movie is Beauty & the Beast. In a house filled with boys, I am the only girl. And I have requested lunch at BOG to fulfill my inner princess. Dh is Derek, 33. He is a computer programmer and tolerates my Disney planning obsession. We met and started dating in high school and just celebrated our 10 year anniversary in Kauai (and it was AMAZING). He is a big Star Wars fan, loves the movie Wall-E, and enjoys Toy Story as well. He is a wonderful daddy. Next in line is my sweet Caleb, age 5. He is in Kindergarten and is in a dual language program where he is learning Spanish. He is my kind-hearted, cautious kid. He loves math, has just discovered Star Wars, and cannot WAIT for Toy Story Mania. This kid has become obsessed with this ride, I'm not even joking. We've been preparing him for the trip by watching you tube videos, reading books and looking at websites. Because he's cautious and reserved at first, he needs to feel prepared and needs to know what to expect. I don't want Disney to be totally overwhelming, so we are preparing him ahead of time. We shall see! Favorite Disney movie - any Toy Story movie. Tolerates Cars for his brother. And lastly, our youngest, smiley Sam, age 2. He will be 3 in March. He is a happy, easy going, spunky and humorous little guy. He is OBSESSED with Buzz and Woody, not to mention Lightning McQueen and Mater. I could recite Mater's Tall Tales and Cars if you asked. We play daily with our cars and toy story guys, so you better believe we will be going on the two toy story rides and finding as many characters from those movies as we can!! We also plan on taking a trip over to the Art of Animation Resort because I cannot, in good conscience, allow us to be that close to all of those life size cars without letting Sam SEE them. HE WILL DIE. And that's us! This is our first family vacation that is not to visit family or going somewhere with family. I think that is another reason why we are so excited. We will just be the four of us. We are going June 1-8th and staying off-site. More on that later. Welcome to our report!
