to my 2018 trip report, which wasn’t quite impossible to get on the road, but it was SO much FUN!
We had a really awesome trip with a huge group of friends and it lasted for 32 days.
Let me introduce the cast, who you might already know, as they are all DISers.
First off there is pinkocto, or Pamela in real life and her mum Jeanette.
Then there are Teri1, or Teresa and her husband Mickey (and YES, this IS his first name)
And there were also franandaj, or Fran and Alison when not on the DISboards.
There was also jedijill, or just Jill for her friends.
And there was michelle9343, our friend Michelle, her husband Vito and their children Angelina and Vito jr and his fiancé Hannah.
And there is us – my dear brother and travel partner Tom and yours truly Karin.
We live in Europe, Austria to be precise and love everything and anything Disney. Tom is already retired, while I still have a few years of work/teaching ahead of me. We are stuck with my school schedule, so we have to travel at the height of summer, when it is blistering hot, but who cares when you can go and visit the Mouse.
We love to travel and even more so, to spend time and have fun with our US friends.
Now on to what this trip report is all about:
This trip had been in the making for quite a bit. After last year's short(er) vacation, which was extended by a certain Miss Irma, we had our mind set on a month long vacation, which ended up to be exactly 32 days long.
We had played around with a few scenarios, but then decided on a few days at WDW, a 7 night Fantasy cruise, followed by some more WDW time.
When we mentioned the cruise to some of our friends, they got on board (literally) one group after the other.
I played around with all kinds of resorts and things and this is what we came up with.
8 nights at WDW
5 nights Key West (the real thing)
4 nights WDW
7 nights Eastern Caribbean Fantasy cruise
7 nights WDW
makes 31 nights and 32 days.
We had lots of things planned, some of them old favourites, some of them new ones.
Here are just a few:
Disney After Hours
Monorail Dine Around
Starwars Dessert Party
Happily Ever After Dessert Party
Three Halloween Parties
Hallowishes Dessert Party
Passholder Playtime at DHS
California Grill Brunch
Savor, Sip and Sparkle
Happily Ever After Fireworks cruise
Moonlight Magic at Epcot
and then some …..
We all had a blast – wanna join us reliving it?
