What is Disneytopia? It is the perfect Disney vacation, one where the resort is wonderful, crowd levels are low, food is great, commando plans work, and you get that extra, suprise of Disney Magic. So, every year we try to get closer and closer to achieving Disneytopia on vacation until we win the lottery and move in to Golden Oak.

I am terrible at writing trip reports. It would take me forever once I returned home and I would forget things. So, after three attempts at reports, I finally decided to just do them LIVE! while on vacation at WDW as well as just lumping them all together in this one trip report. Maybe if the report stays around long enough, then I truly can watch my girls grow up at Disney World. You are welcome to join us on our trips.

Some introductions.

DW and I on our honeymoon .... a long time ago in a theme park not to far, far away...

So, how did we get here?

Neither DW nor I had Disney experiences as children. DW never went as a child, and I went once with my parents, as a 12 year old boy, to Epcot, on a Saturday during Spring Break, managed 3 whole rides, and walked through the countries.

When DW and I got married, she wanted to honeymoon in WDW. I thought, well, it wasn't that great that many years ago, but let's give it a shot. As all of you know by reading this, it truly was a magical Disneymoon.

    We will be driving down in the black, Pontiac Astek. I call it the Tumbler from the Batman movies, because that would just be really cool to be driving that. We have the Disney Family stickers on the back. Wave if you see us on the road.

    I'm in! Does your Tumbler have that cool feature where it drives itself while you lay down and aim the missile? Or is that a Wayne Enterprises after-market add-on?

    By the time this thing is over with, his Aztek is going to be way more awesome than your rocket van. :rotfl2:

    That is the Wayne enterprise add on. Although, there are times I don't remember while driving, so maybe there is an autodriver. :crazy2:

    NORM!!
    ahem, sorry.. I'm in. If for nothing else than to see
    1) if you can keep up your post pace away from a keyboard and mouse, and
    2) if that Aztek can really make it to DW. Back when they first came out, I'd pull up next to one in my Firebird and think "These two vehicles CAN'T be from the same company!" :rotfl: Tell me, Norm; did Pontiac build excitement into them, too? I mean, without the rocket launcher.

    Hope y'all have a safe journey and GREAT trip!

    ETA.. missed the front page by -><- THAT much
