Hello! and to my 4th trip report! We just got back from a wonderful trip to the world. Yes, it was hot, crowded and the tour groups were everywhere but we still had an amazing time!!! Im not going to sugar coat it and say every moment was perfect because the heat certainly made us more tired and grumpy many times during the trip but we persevered and we were able to accomplish a lot. If you happened to read my PTR, you know that I am a planner maybe an over planner if you will. When it comes to our Disney trips, I like to know what we are eating, where we are going and so on. I guess my goal is to avoid those conversations that go something like this .Where do you want to go? .I dont know? and back and forth. We usually stick to a plan and it works for us or at least it did on our other trips. But, we found out that going in the summer is different .very different. Between the heat and the crowds, there were many times that you needed to just go with flow. Hence the title of this trip report. Needless to say plans got changed many, many times on this trip. But, when we got stressed or things didnt go as planned we took a deep breath and kept going. I think in the end it made an even more relaxed and enjoyable trip for all of us. So, who are we? Well, Im a 38 year old stay at home mom, who just graduated college in the spring. It took me long enough to go back but Im so happy I did. I love all things Disney and always have but my love for Walt Disney World didnt begin until 5 years ago when we took our first trip. When I have time my other passions include traveling, scrapbooking and reading. Something I would love to do one day is run in the half marathon at Disney definitely a goal of mine for the near future. My favorite character is Mickey and I love the classic Disney movies like Lady and the Tramp and Peter Pan but I also love the new Pixar movies as well such as Finding Nemo and UP. My favorite rides would be Peter Pan, Soarin and Tower of Terror. My DH is definitely a more laid back kind of guy. Hes very easy going and is happy to sit back and let me plan our trips. He doesnt like crowds which surprised me when he agreed to a summer trip. His favorite characters are Grumpy and Donald Duck. Im not sure if he has favorite Disney movie but he enjoys watching them as much as the boys and I do. He loves BTMRR especially at night and his favorite night time show would definitely be Fantasmic. Nick is my oldest and just turned 12 before this trip. We could definitely see the change in him this trip as he inches closer to becoming a teenager. Gone are the days of getting up at the crack of dawn at Disney ready and willing to head to the parks. He was all about wanting to sleep in this trip. Nick is my quiet one. He does excellent in school, is in band and chorus and enjoys playing basketball and soccer. He graduated from sixth grade in June and is on his way to Jr. High this fall. Nicks favorite character is Goofy. He loves BTMRR and Space Mountain. Noah is 9 and my youngest. Noah is a very sweet boy and my daredevil. He loves thrill rides and Im happy that he does. I finally have someone to ride with since both DH and Nick dont enjoy them. Noah is an excellent student and loves to read. He also loves to swim and take pictures. He brought along his camera this trip and got some great shots! Noahs favorite character is Goofy and his favorite movie is Hercules. He loves Splash Mountain, BTMRR, ToT and Dinosaur.
