Welcome to my 2nd Trip Report!! I hope you will enjoy reading along as I walk down memory lane! First let me make some introductions first! We are a typical family with all our little quirks. We hail from the "great" state of Mississippi. Our group included myself, my DH Keith, our DS Chris (17), our DD Madison (15) and my mom. Originally this was going to be a girl's trip. Chris then decided to join us followed by Keith...which is a story I will get to soon!! This trip had many ups and downs but we still had an awesome time and can't wait to return! So now the intorductions...who are we?? I will begin with myself: Tisa. Although this is only my 5th trip to Disney, I am Disney addicted much to Keith's dismay! I love to talk Disney, read Disney, and basically submerge myself in all things Disney! Really, I like travel in general and wish I could have Samantha Brown's job! I could travel 24/7, 365 and be perfectly happy!! I am also a planner and could be considered a Disney dork. I do the whole spreadsheet/binder thing. I get way too detailed in my planning but it is how I relax! Along with loving to travel I love food (so thankfully we had FREE DINING!!) and I also love photography, although I am a total amature and only dream of owning a fancy camera!! On more than one occasion, someone in my family would say "Not another picture!" or "You are seriously taking pictures of food?!?!" So in saying that, one word of warning: I took tons of pictures so this will be heavy on the photos! Yes, I love taking pictures and this drives my family crazy !! I kept having to run to catch up with them since they quit stopping for me! Next up is my hubby, Keith. I honestly had no idea why he volunteered to go on this trip. (I find out during the trip, so you have to read along to discover this bit of info!) This was Keith's 2nd trip to Disney. His first trip was last June (2010). He went only due to the fact that we could go super cheap with military tickets and room discounts. He is/was a Disney "hater" even though he had never been before! He went reluctantly last year, decided mid-trip we would remain the entire week at Disney (we were planning to end the week in St Augustine), and then volunteered to go with us this year! Here is a picture of us from our trip last year: Next we have Chris, our 17 year old son. This is Chris' 3rd trip. His first was during Spring Break 2009 followed by last year's trip. Chris is pretty laid back and loves riding all of the "thrill" rides. This becomes quit evident during the first two days! And then there is Madison. She is 15 and this made her 4th trip to Disney World. Her first trip was when she was 4, then in 2009, and 2010. Madison loves the princesses and still wants to do some character meets, although that interest is beginning to wain. Madison also plays the flute in the high school band. They have a trip planned for Spring 2012 to WDW! I see chaperoning in my future!! Madison also likes all of the rides! The kiddos on last year's trip: And finally, my mom. My mom lives an hour south of us. This trip originally was planned to give her a much needed vacation. This is her first vacation in 6 years! I cannot fathom!! My mom actually surprised me on many occassions...but I cannot give too much away! You will not want to continue reading my TR! My dad was coming along but work dictated he could not join us! I am a daddy's girl and had looked forward to him going. Hopefully he will soon! My mom and dad: So that is who we are. Now where did we stay? We stayed at Port Orleans French Quarter. The newly renovated rooms are nice! This was a stipulation of Keith's that we had to return to Port Orleans. Last year we stayed at Riverside, but they were all booked so we moved over to POFQ this time...more on those thoughts later!! We were there May 26-June 2 which included Memorial Day. Plus we had Free Dining as I mentioned previously. This meant we ate and ate and ate! And, finally, as my title says....some plans are made to be broken. And coming from a self-proclaimed OCD Disney World Planner....that is saying a lot!!! Next up...our trip down to Orlando and our first night on the town!
