Welcome one and all to my second trip report! As the title of the report states this trip was.....different. Dont get me wrong, it was a good trip. But, it was definitely different from our normal Disney trips. How so? Well, I found that I really slowed it down this year. Or at least it was slow compared to our normal commando pace. We still got lots of things done but we didnt completely kill ourselves in the process. Another difference is that I simply put my camera away a lot of the time. I really just wanted to be there and enjoy the moment with my family. I still came home with more than enough pictures to put into a scrapbook and to share here with you lovely people. Now, there were also some other forces at play that gave me no choice but to slow down. But, I shall get to those in due time. First, let me do a quick introduction for anyone who isnt familiar with my family. Here we are in EPCOT back in 2011: There is my husband, Ed. He is not a huge Disney lover. I know, the horror! But, it is slowly growing on him more and more. He does enjoy our vacations when were there and definitely has fun. He works very hard for our family and is a wonderful father and husband. Then there is little old me, Amanda. I love Disney and Disney planning. Sometimes I think enjoy the planning as much as the vacation itself. I am a stay at home mom for our son, room mom for his class, maid, personal shopper for the household and household financial planner. And last but certainly not least is our 4 year old son, Reid. He is already a big Disney fan. And probably knows as much (if not more) than Ed about the parks. He is in PreK4 this year and I wish it would last forever because I am not ready for him to go off to Kindergarten next year. Although, he is more than ready to go! Now that we have that out of the way, lets get down to the fun stuff: our Disney trip! Initially, we were supposed to be going in December of this year. But, when they announced the Tower of Terror 10 mile run, our plans changed. Ed has been into running for a little over a year now. And Tower of Terror is his favorite ride. So, he was very excited about the race and really wanted to run it. I figured it may get him more interested in Disney and may score more Disney trips for myself, so why not?!? Then, he talked me into giving running a try and I signed up for the 5K race. And with that, our new dates were now Friday, September 28th through Sunday, October 7th.
