The Way to Get Started...Quit Talking Start Doing!

I've been talking about Disney long before I had my son. I never went to the World, only the Land. Here goes nothing!

This is my first pre trip report and well my first trip to Disney. I'm a Dis newbie. I've been researching and following these boards for 6 months before finally joining and spreading my wings. Now to the fun part!

Dates: November 14-18 2013

Where: Disney's Beach Club Resort

Why: I'm 30 and I have never been to WDW! I haven't been on an actual vacation (where no work was done) in 7 years and I am finally financially in a place where I can take us and my parents!



Me! I'm Natasha. I'm 30 and I work with the US Navy. I'm a kind of single mom, I say kind of only because we are not living together (stationed in another state) or married at the moment. My son will be two in July. He will almost be 2 1/2 by the time we are on our trip. I'm insane about planning down to the last detail. I'm a southern girl who enjoys her sweet tea with or without the liquor sitting on the back deck enjoying the humidity. I'm also a beach girl by nature. My favorite Disney movie is Tangled (followed by the little mermaid). I cannot wait to meet princesses. We are eating at Akerhus just for me. I don't know if I'm more excited to plan our outfits or the trip?
In costume (Wicked 10K...can you guess who I am?)

And out

My son Michael. The craziest kid I know. He is both sweet and spicy which scares me a little for this impending trip. His favorite Disney movie is....too many to name! It was Tangled now he loves Beauty and the Beast, Frog Princess and Snow White (I'm actually thrilledhe loves Snow White because it is so classic and relaxing for me to watch). Michael ABSOLUTELY adores the dwarves and pretends to snore when he watches them sleeping. Too cute. In fact he is having a Flynn Rider birthday party in a couple of weeks. More on that later

My parents, Michael (66) and Deanna(57). LOVE them to death. They are getting a free vaca to help. But also because they have really been a 2nd set of parents to my needy little boy. I would probably be a complete wreck if wasn't for them since the day he was born. They are amazing people. I do have a tiny fear of how my father will do in crowds. Mom's favorite character is Merida and dad's is Donald Duck!

My main man, J, is 48. He is there to make Michael and I happy. J's favorite character is Buzz Lightyear. I've already told him a picture of us kissing in front of the castle is mandatory for the trip. He's pretty shy about photos on public sites.

I started planning our first Disney trip EVER 2 months ago. Because of life in general (and funds) we have 3 nights and 2 full days and 2 quarter days to enjoy it. Not ideal, but I'm making the best of what we got! We equals myself and my 2 year old son (who will be 2 1/2 on the trip), my boyfriend (father of son) and my parents. My boyfriend and I are paying for the whole thing and even getting my parents their own room. We are staying at the Beach Club Resort. Our plane tickets thankfully were taken care of by frequent flyer miles. We are using the dining plan as well.

I'm so overwhelmed but here is what I have planned out (with the help of a travel agent who probably is HIGHLY annoyed with me). Feel free to give me any hints or tips...tell me if I'm WAY off. Let her rip
