To write a TR or not write a TR? That has been the question for a while. Our trip happened 6 months ago and I have been feeling the pressure to write a TR for quite a while. As you can see, I have ignored that pressure pretty well, since 6 months have literally flown by since we have gotten home from our trip. And Im starting to say to myself, Will anyone want to read a TR about Thanksgiving / Christmas holidays now that we are getting into the summertime? The problem is that it was an amazing trip. Not one that should be allowed to be forgotten without proper documentation. I dont want to forget the details of this trip that came together to allow a family reunion to happen that spanned 3 generations. At holiday time, no less! The other problem is that I have had no time to write it, much less take the time to sort through all of the pictures that were taken by multiple family members. Do you know how many pictures a family can take when there are no less than 3 cameras taking pictures most of the time? PLUS Photopass? Not that Im complaining .but I have written a TR before and I know it is a lot of work. Work that is totally rewarding at the end, as well as while you are writing it. I finally gave in today and I am taking advantage of my sons nap time to get it started. I really hope you choose to follow along, but if you do I am warning you that it is going to be a long journey. We were at the World for almost 2 weeks so there is a lot of ground to cover. On top of that, my son was the highlight of my trip (in my eyes, of course), so you are going to see a lot of pictures of my adorable toddler, Dylan. This is him : The final hurdle for me is the time commitment. I promise that I will do my best to keep this moving along, but there might be times where I have a long gap in between updates. I apologize a head of time, but there are certain times of the year that are crazier than others for me and I tend to disappear a little bit during those times. So if you are willing to stick with me, lets get this show on the road! I actually wrote a PTR for this trip. It feels like a very long time ago when I was planning for it, and it was really fun to go back & read it to get ready to write the TR. I am just going to include a link to the PTR so that you can familiarize yourselves with all of the people involved (there are a lot of us) and I dont have to do introductions all over again. I put links in the PTR so you can scan it pretty quickly, if you choose to. Here is the link. http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=2559965 For a quick recap, here are the cast of characters that went on this reunion trip. This is me (Alison), my husband (Todd) and our 3 year old son (Dylan) This is my sister (Angelynn), her husband (Bryan) and my nephew Elijah. The main purpose of this trip was that Elijah had graduated high school last June and he got to pick a place to go on a trip to celebrate. He picked WDW and we all were complimenting him on what a great choice he made. My parents Ed & Susie One shot of the whole group That sums us up. Here are a few more details to get me started. When : Our trip was from November 21 December 4, 2010. We were in Orlando over the Thanksgiving holiday, so we got to take advantage of all of the holiday decorations around the World. Where : We own a timeshare, so we have never stayed on-property before. Due to a very lucky set of circumstances, we were able to get some great deals and try out a few hotels during our time there. We started out at Port Orleans Riverside for a few nights, then moved to a timeshare at Marriott Grande Vista, then moving to the Animal Kingdom Lodge for 2 nights. Hopefully you will read along and let me know that you are here. I love getting to know people on the Dis and have made some really good friends here. Thanks for reading!!
