Tut-Tut, it Looks Like Rain! May '09 Trip Report. *Finished! 9/27 Pg. 69.
 
Winnie the Pooh: Christopher Robin! I think it would help with this deception if you would just kind of open your umbrella and say, "Tut-tut, it looks like rain.

There was no deception during my Disney Trip, it rained...and rained. It was Disney though, so it wasn't entirely awful. ;)

Welcome to my 2nd Trip Report!!! :yay:

If you would like to read more about the planning of this trip, please check out my PTR - Supercallifragilistic-ADR'sApproachUs! May '09 PTR.

The Cast:

Me, Leslie aka LL on the DIS. I'm 26, this was my 6th trip to Disney. My second on-property trip, my fourth trip as an adult. I've been in April 1988, November 1995, February 2003, July 2005, September 2008 and this trip, May 2009. I left my wonderful husband, Marc home. He wants a flat screen tv so that will be the next big expenditure at our house. He stayed home with our kitties, Sully & Ruby. Even though we have only been to Disney together once, it made for a really different trip with him staying home.

Jen. Also 26. We met here on the DIS and are convinced that we are long lost Disney Sisters. We are only a month apart in age, our dad's both have the same first and middle name, both of our maiden's names are colors...the list goes on and on. We even found out on this trip that we use the same deodorant and both love the same obscure tv show from 2000 called Higher Ground. :rotfl2: This trip was the first time we met and it was truly awesome to meet such a fantastic person. Jen was with me for 3 nights/4 days.

Mom. My Mom that is, Angela but we will call her Mom. She's 47, shhhh don't tell her I told you. ;) This was her third trip to Disney. She went in 1988 and 1995 with our family and now this trip in 2009. She was really looking forward to this trip as my Dad is not a Disney type person and she was excited to be able to do things at Disney that he wouldn't really care to try or do. She was also with me for 3 nights/4 days but not the same ones as Jen.
*I don't have a single picture of Mom on my camera. I will put one in when I get hers, I know I took a few of her on it. :thumbsup2

Nobby the Gnome. Age is unknown. He is part of the Gnomie Group. We have been passing him between us for the last few months. I will admit that we only took Nobby to the park on one day and we have very few photos. I know! I am so bad!! He was happy in the room with the towel animals! He liked sitting in our window looking at the people pass by.

This is Nobby from his trip in January with Jen.

Trip Details:

We stayed at All Star Music Resort from May 22 - May 30th, 2009. Jen was with me from the 22nd and left on the 25th. Mom arrived on the 26th and left with me on the 30th. So I had two nights solo in the middle.

I'm slowly gathering Jen and Mom's pictures from their cameras. I have uploaded my Photopass pictures but as I am part of a share, it will be awhile before I have those....something to look forward too!

I think I am going to do this Trip Report more on the slow side...I want to make it last and all. It's going to be interesting because I literally took 1/2 a page of notes in my nifty Trip Report Notebook. At the end of the day, I just didn't feel like making notes. Luckily I have been blessed with a decent memory, have my pictures AND Jen & Mom will help me fill in the gaps.

As I post updates, I will be putting this links in the space in case you want to skip all the chitter chatter.
