Hi everyone! We are getting ready to embark on our 5th family trip to WDW! We leave in 1 week For those of you who don't know us, let me introduce us: Me (Missy)--I LOVE Disney! It's my happy place! I have Disney stuff all through our house...that way I'm never too far away My goal is to become a Disney Travel Agent! I have found that I have a passion for helping others plan vacations, especially Disney vacations...as a TA, I could do that without DH rolling his eyes every time I try to help others DH (Alan, aka Goofy)--He tolerates my Disney obsession. He is sweet enough to take me and our girls every year. Secretly, though, I think he enjoys it as much as we do How does he pay for our obsession? He owns and operates a Chick-fil-A restaurant in our local mall!!! DD12 (Sarah)--She was our first Disney princess. She went on her first trip when she was 4 (almost 5), and still remembers some of it. Sarah also has Aspergers Syndrome/High Functioning Autism, along with some anxiety, attention, and sensory issues. She has been off her ADHD meds for 2 1/2 weeks now (thanks to insurance issues ), but we have been enjoying the happy girl that we missed when she was on meds, so we may try this trip w/out the meds We'll have to see how that goes Could make for an interesting trip! DD8 (Allison)--Our 2nd Disney princess. She, too, went on her first trip at almost 5 years old. She's been hooked ever since! Her life plan is to work at WDW as soon as she is old enough (it would be tomorrow, if she could...hey, she could play Nemo in Finding Nemo: The Musical...she knows all the words, and sounds a lot like Nemo!). Her only issue w/ WDW is that her DS is one trip up on her ( she missed the first trip, since she was only 8 months old and had been born a premie, and had colic and reflux...wouldn't have made for a pleasant trip for anyone!) Anyways, now that you know who we are, I'll explain my title, Brave New World. Allison is the "scaredy-cat" of our family. We'll call her our "delicate child," although she's not too delicate now. Allison has been terrified of riding some of the "bigger rides" b/c she was too scared to ride them. We have given her grief to no end b/c she refused to ride... Goofy's Barnstormer! Can you believe it?!? Goofy's Barnstormer! She actually got in line to ride it a couple of years ago, when we went with one of her best friends, but she chickened out...it looked "too fast!" Last year, she wouldn't even consider it. So, we have gotten tired of it. We had basically decided that we were going to just put her on it, kicking and screaming (yes, bad parents that we are), b/c we know she'll enjoy is once she does it. Well, she made the announcement recently that she has decided to ride the infamous, terrifyingly fast, Goofy's Barnstormer. I was able to convince her further than that (along with the help of some of her classmates at school) to ride BTMRR, too! She has also decided that she'll try Test Track again, and is going to ride KRR at AK (as long as we bring her a change of clothes, so she doesn't have to walk around in wet clothes...something that apparantly REALLY bothers her to think about!). She has titled this vacation as...Allison's Trip of Bravery...da da da da!!! In preparation for these acts of bravery, we have watched videos on YouTube of each of these rides, at least once. So, there you have it! Our Brave New World trip! Oh, yeah, in case you didn't see in my siggie, we'll be staying at the Beach Club and will be there from 9/15-26! Our last chance to have real family time before the holiday season hits! So, here we go!!!
