Merry Christmas Eve and Happy Hanukkah to you all!! Welcome back to old friends, and a warm welcome to new ones! I'm xlsm, your trip reporter for this holiday adventure. Our family has never gone to Walt Disney World during the Christmas season before, so this was a very special visit for us. If you want to read about any of our other trips, links are in my signature This was truly a trip of firsts...our first resort stay anywhere other than Wilderness Lodge, lots of first restaurant experiences, and our first hard ticket event - Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party, and my first visit as an annual passholder. So sit back, relax, and take a holiday stroll along the Boardwalk with us! I can't wait to share it with you! Sounds fun, xlsm! But who are you people anyway?? I'm the S, a thirtysomething mom to boys X (13) and L (11), and wife to M. I'm Disney to the core, emotional, mildly crazy, and equal parts anti-social/social butterfly. It all depends on the day! The kids love to visit the parks, but X wishes I would plan more time for relaxing. I say, I'll relax when I'm dead! M was a Disney convert...he didn't understand my planning for our first visit as a family, but he is now fully onboard and truly enjoys our trips. Ok, that's great...why should I stick around? Because I'll give you a cookie! Cookies? Sold! I look forward to sharing our experiences with all of you...can't wait to dive in!
