Hello, DIS-friends! to anyone just meeting us for the first time. And for all of you who have read our reports before and came back for another! So glad to have you here and excited to share our adventures! This trip was a wild one that grew well beyond our initial plans and ended up being: 4 nights at Walt Disney World during Star Wars Weekends plus the Flower & Garden Festival, 4 nights on the Disney Dream (our first Disney cruise! ), and another 4 nights at WDW and SWW, including the 24-hour-day at the Magic Kingdom. The trip took place May 14th-26th, 2015 and we were fortunate enough to overlap several DIS-friends while we were there, resulting in some fun DIS-meets. If you would like to check out the planning for the trip, you can find the Pre-Trip Report here: Is Mickey a Captain or a Jedi? Both! - May '15 Land & Sea For those that don't know us, we are "Dugette" (me), "Dug" (my husband of nearly 10 years!), and Izzy (our 2-year-old toddler). This was Izzy's 4th trip to WDW and she had a great time, between her "toddler moments". Here we are at Star Wars Weekends: And here is Izzy looking a bit happier : This was a challenging trip for us. Our easygoing toddler was not so easygoing with the lack of sleep/skipping naps that happened during the trip. Plus, she was newly potty-trained and apparently wanted to see each and every Disney potty, whether or not she actually needed to use it. These things, combined with some unexpected news from home and an ambitious schedule, led to an exhausted & stressed out Mommy and Daddy at times. We had rough moments, but we also had many, many magical moments. Now that we've been back for a few weeks, it's those magical moments that stand out, especially because Izzy is now old enough to actually bring them up in conversation and remind me about the fun she had. So, let's get this show on the road! Chapters Day 1 - Thursday, May 14th Recliners in the Sky MCO = My Child's Ornery On the Boardwalk Food, Flowers, & Fast Cars Cars & Characters Minnie!
