Hello!Hola to everyone...this is my first attempt at a Pre-Trip and Trip Report...Ive read many on here and am excited to do my own. I pretty much think about the cruise everyday...and I'm also a great planner I planned this trip originally for May 2010, 5 day double dip cruise..and um I got pregnant and due date was in April 2010..so I moved it to December and was even happier about that since its during my favorite holiday CHRISTMAS. Here's the crew: Me: I'm 33yrs old. Puerto Rican, Single Mother of Two. (However Daddy is coming along on this trip, we still are very close-just you know). I hail from Chicago. and lived in Florida for 8yrs...and I remember always wanting to come to disney world as a kid, as teen, and as a young adult. I got my chance when I was 25yrs old when I moved to Tampa. My father took me to Magic Kingdom. I was so excited, it was hard to control. I was actually jumping up and down at everything I saw...especially the Castle. I instantly fell in love..the next year, My dad took me to Epcot...I hated it. lol I was mad that I didn't choose Magic Kingdom...anyways...in 2007 I got pregnant with my first son...here's me in Minnie's House at Magic Kingdom (this was during christmas time, I think a couple days before christmas actually). Notice I had painted my face...I think I was the only pregnant woman with face painting on. after this day..I said I vow to take my son to DIsney world all the time..So at 8 months I brought my first son to MVMCP 2008!! This was us at end of night...notice the tip of my nose..that's chocolate..I had that on my nose the whole night..no one said anything to me. I was mad when I saw my reflection in the mirror at the end of the night!!! So why do a cruise early december? well Its expensive after that first week or else it would've been right before christmas day. and I love christmas..I really love that time of year... My Tree in 2007 with my son's gifts from Santa. (sorry its sideways) and here's the tree in 2008 So now you've met me...and you've seen my son at 8months..here's my son Miguelito now at 2 years old..He loves Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, Stitch, Lightning McQueen (not the movie, but the actual cars), Princess Tiana, Eeyore, Buzz, Woody, Jesse. This was just in June... We've been to DIsney World like 20 times in one year... During Christmas 2009 -Pregnant with my second. At Garden Grill. Daddy is with us on this trip. This is Flower and Garden Festival in March 2010..yes..I know am I crazy...well I had a wheelchair..my mom pushed me around..lol!! anything for a glimpse of Magic! and this was us in May for my birthday..I know I just had the baby 5 weeks before that..I was crazy..but we had fun.. And finally here's my baby boy, Manuelito..he's only 3months...but he will be 8months for the cruise!! My first son walked at 8months..Im hoping baby will too! So with that said we love Disney and now we must experience the Wonder!!! our door at Pop Century during our Christmas Trip 2009 As I said before, Daddy will be with us on this trip...more to help me and to enjoy his sons vacation...he's not a disney fan..although I've caught him singing MouseCabonga with my son...often..lol.. So thats the cast...up next...what do to with all this time....SHOP!! Yes Mickeys and Minnies...I have already bought things for the cruise...EBAY, DisneyStores, Walmarts, Targets, Dollar Stores, etc etc..I pick up things here and there...wait..I'm getting ahead of myself!!
