Hello DISers!! My name is Casey and I am just back from a Mother/Daughter long weekend trip! This trip was filled with little snags, a big snag, and tons of Pixie dust! To help me get over this severe PDD (Post Disney Depression) I have decided to try my hand at another TR! I have done a few successful PTRs (and a few non-successful) and also a successful TR, however if you went back to read it now all you would see is some words and giant pictures that look like a gas tank monitor! Yes, I used to do all my reporting with Photobucket and now I have to try to find a new way. Anywho.. Let's get on with it! The Who: Me! Casey. I am a payroll professional for a local school system and up until this past year I was a coach for Pop Warner cheer. I took last year off because I got married! I am also a fur mom to an almost 5 year old Black lab named Tessie. I have been to Disney 11 times, many of which have been the last few years. My trip history looks like this: 1995- First trip with family. Where I lost my first tooth! Stayed at Dixie Landings 2001 - Summer trip with my parents. It was the summer before 8th grade. We stayed at POFQ. October 2010- Quick weekend trip with my Aunt, Uncle, Cousin and Sken! Stayed at All Star Sports December 2011- My cheer team made it to Nationals! Stayed at All Star Music March 2012- Took a trip with my cousin and her two kids. Stayed at All Star Movies March 2013- Went again with my cousin and her kids. Stayed at All Star Sports. April 2014- Went for 2 days to see the Cheerleading Worlds. Stayed at All Star Sports. March 2015 - Went with Sken. Stayed at POR. December 2015- Went to Nationals for a second time! Stayed at All Star Music. September 2016- Went with Sken, got engaged! So as you can see, the last few years consisted of annual trips, with the exception of last year which brings me to this! My last trip was September of 2016. On our last night, during Wishes, Sken got on one knee and asked me to marry him! We got married this past October, and while we didn't have a Disney wedding, I made sure to throw in some Disney touches! Back to this trip! I was joined by my Mom! Her birthday is actually tomorrow, but like any good Disney fan, we celebrated all weekend! Mom is a healthcare professional, and mom to me and my furry sister Dixie. The last time she had been to Disney was 2001 when I was still in middle school! So this trip was all about me showing her the ropes and also making memories! We had so much fun! We were also joined on this trip by my Aunt L and her daughter O for half of the time. The What/Where/When: We stayed at Animal Kingdom Lodge from January 13-January 16th. I hope you all come along as I relive this weekend! Bare with me as I configure a new way to add photos, and also while I wait for mom to send me hers. Can't wait to share our girls weekend with you all! We visited all four parks, checked out the Festival of the Arts, ate to our hearts content, and took our time just taking in the sites.
