Hi All! This is my first PTR. I just stumbled upon the DIS last week and I'm loving reading everyone's PTRs and TRs. (I plan on going "live" when I'm there!) Let me give you a little background on our trip. Basic Rundown: Arrive Feb 4, 2010. We're staying at Port Orleans French Quarter. We're only at the World for a long weekend. We check out on Monday, Feb 8. (I'm self employed, so I don't have TOO much leeway. No work? No Pay! Plus we have a daughter who will be 9 months when we go away. She'll be with my parents and 6 nights is plenty...haha!) This is my husband's first trip and something like my 12th or 13th. My brother was a CM for 5 years, so we got to go pretty often on nice CM discounts. I haven't been to WDW since I was 13 (I'm 24, almost 25 now!). So much has changed...I can't wait! Let's meet our cast of characters: I'm Kate. I'm 24, but I will be 25 when we hit the World. I've been a Disney lover my whole life. My parents honeymooned at WDW when Epcot was having their Grand Opening Celebration. Us and the Mouse go way back. All my birthday parties were themed to whichever Disney movie came out most recently. In Elementary school, I was most proud to have seen Beauty and the Beast 7 times in the movie theater. Gotta love a Fairy Dust Family!! We mostly stayed offsite when I was younger. We had a time share at Orange Lake for a long time. We camped once at Fort Wilderness and hit ASMu once. Loved them both. This is my first time at POFQ. I can't wait!! Next is my DH, Dave. He's 25, but will be 26 when we arrive. He has never been to the World. (He has 5 brothers and sisters, so big vacations just weren't possible growing up!) He is just learning to love to travel and I KNOW he will love WDW as much as I do. I see a future in the DVC for us! He's up for anything and is mostly excited to get away. (This will in fact be only his second time flying.) Us on our honeymoon in Pawley's Island, SC in March of 2007. We really haven't changed much since then! This is Rory, the Queen of the Castle. She's 5 months old currently. She'll be 1 in May. She is getting lots of Disney paraphanelia for Christmas. In fact, Rory's big girl room is going to have a WDW theme. She won't be hitting the world until she is 3 or 4 at least, but we can't wait to take our first family trip to WDW!! (There probably won't be anymore characters in our cast, so we are planning already!) I'm planning to blog about ADR's, day to day plans, discoveries, surprises for DH, etc. I'll also be posting insights into WDW from my students. (I'm a dance teacher.) They LOVE to give me advice and most sentences start like this "Miss Kate! When you are at Disney World, you HAVE to..."
