Trip Report November 2016 – Day 2

Our first day in the parks was one I worked hard to prepare for.  On paper it was just a morning in Epcot with a lunch at Garden Grill.  In practice it was the shining glory of a chipmunk toddler. Since the Garden Rooms at the Boardwalk are not located near the Innkeepers Club Lounge…

Trip Report November 2016 – Day 1

Our November 2016 trip was somewhat an accident.  It started out as a long weekend trip after Thanksgiving so we could see some of the new experiences that opened since our January 2016 trip.  The trip slowly grew, then a month and half out had to be moved completely.  Suddenly it was a week-long trip…

Trip Report January 2016 – Day 2

Day 2 of our January 2016 trip started like 95% of our vacation days do – late.  It was my resolution for this trip that we would be at the parks as close to park opening as possible.  We have a night owl baby, which means we have to wake him up to accomplish this.…

Trip Report January 2016 – Day 1

Our January Walt Disney World trip is one of those you start planning a few years in advance and have a lot to look forward to.  It was a long and winding route to end up at the trip we’re taking, but all things happen for a reason. I’m going to attempt a live trip…
