It is probably early to begin a PTR report but I figured why not? I could use all the tips and feedback I can get! It is going to be a resting ground of thoughts, feelings and ideas of this entire process. I hope the DIS community will chime in and offer me tips, suggestions and support--I am going to need it! I have only been to Disney once and that trip was planned for me other than having input on which resort we should stay at the first go around. I knew from that trip we would be back many times. It has taken five years (by the time we go) but we are heading back! This will be the first time where I will actively be planning everything for the tripat least for my immediate family. DH will humor me at this point to make a few comments here and there but for him, it is still too far away. Not for me!!
