I never thought there would be a moment when I wouldnt want Chewbacca the Wookie to show up.
But it happened.
I thought that my sister would reach a moment where she wouldnt want any more desserts.
That never happened.
What DID happen was a fantastic trip to Walt Disney World, and it included an upgrade, a trip behind-the-scenes, and SO MUCH GOOD FOOD.
All of this will be discussed in the spectacle that will be held in this thread.
I alone took over 2000 pictures, and my sister and mom also took a bunch! Those pictures included FOOD PICTURES too, which weve never taken, but theyre nice to look at, and restaurants/food will be reviewed in this trip report!
Im kinda pumped. Its like going on the trip again. And since I want to go back right now, this is good for me.
A little bit of Disney therapy, I suppose.
This was my ninth trip, my sister's eighth trip, and my parents..I'm not sure! But a few more than us!
Anyway, introductions are next. Links are going to be held at the bottom of this post, for your convenience.
I hope that youll join me in revisiting July 29 to August 6, 2011 at the Wilderness Lodge with my family!
