Is It Ever Too Late For A Trip Reports? The Four Month Late TR
Is it ever too late to write a trip report? I hope not!
So last December my family took its annual trip. It was my first trip since I had found the DIS. When I got home I wanted to write a trip report, but I never got the chance. But now I’m going into a Disney relapse and spend all my free time (and even time when I’m supposed to be doing homework) reading trip reports, wishing I was in my favorite place in the world. So I decided to write a tr for my last trip because school is winding down and I have the time now.
So here’s the cast:
My family. Hailing from the western suburbs of Chicago, we’ve been to Disney once a year together since 1995. The last three years (2005, 2007, 2008 – this trip) we’ve gone over Christmas for a week. Before that, we would during October when it was slow. I would call my family a commando style touring family. We get ADR’s for each day based on park hours. We are nearly every rope drop, or close to rope drop time, every day and still as long as we can last.
Here's a picture of us from 2007. I can't seem to find a picture of all of us from this year, plus most of this years pictures will be shown later, if you all want to hear more...
Me: I’m a 17 year old junior in high school. I love Disney: the movies, the parks, everything. It is my favorite place in the whole world. The back of my iPhone is a picture of the castle. I call Disney my family’s special place. We, well at least I, forget the outside world while I’m there. I love it. I’m a self proclaimed tomboy. I used to play basketball; this winter being my first winter not playing. I snowboard now; this winter being my first full winter since I started 4 years ago. I love photography, something I got from my mom and my grandfather.
My little brother: Okay, so he’s not little anymore. He’s 15 now, 14 on our last trip. He’s about an inch taller than me (but I’ll never admit that to him). He loves Disney too, but isn’t as outward about it. When we are planning and thinking about taking a trip, we can tell he loves it, but the rest of the time it’s not so evident. He’s an athlete, ex-hockey player turned golfer and baseball player. We fight sometimes, but we are siblings and never in Disney.
My mom: She’s the one that has fostered my family’s love for Disney. The major planner, though I have started to take more and more of a part, she is ultra organized. She basically keeps this family running smoothly. She’s a breast cancer survivor of three years (I think); my favorite and most memorable trip coming while she had cancer. She’s a strong, amazing mom. We took a mom and daughter trip for a weekend when she had work meetings there a few years ago. Now every trip we take a mother daughter day together.
My dad: He’s just along for the ride. He loves Disney, but doesn’t really get into the planning like the rest of us. As long as we eat every day, he is happy. I’m not exactly sure how to describe my dad. We are pretty close, closer than my mom and I. He takes me to the local thrill park once a year to spend the day together riding the roller coasters. He’s the best dad I know. At Disney, he’ll do nearly every ride with me. He loves Tower of Terror the most.
So here’s the story:
As I said above, my family took its annual trip in December, from the 23rd till the 28th. Well, that was the plan…
can we pretend that
airplanes in the night sky
are like shooting stars?
i could really use a wish right now...
