Who's going on this "here's hopin'" trip anyway??

Ok let's get this puppy started, whatdaya say?

The 2 definite people who will be on this trip are me & DH, of course!

DH is KC. he's a techie-geek type of guy and I wouldn't have it any other way. He's much younger than I am (*cough*8years*cough) but we get along ridiculously well. We met about 6 years ago, at a wrestling event. For those who don't know, I used to be a professional wrestler. Anyway, he was at the event and as soon as I saw him, that was it. We had a lot of hurdles to end up together but here we are still going strong. He is also awesome about my Disney obsession! He loves it too, always has a great time, and secretly thanks the DIS for all its help since because of the DIS he never waits on lines for anything! He's really great, a keeper for sure.

So what do we look like? Here's a retrospect of us over the years.

Our Wedding 2/4/05


Our Disney Honeymoon 2005




2007-2008 trip (We stayed over New Years)




DL June 2007 (my birthday trip)




F&W 2007 October


Feb 2008 trip (with a bunch of friends)\


P&PP ! Our Mexican Gang.


Our Anniversary @ Narcoossee's


Nov 2008 (our last trip, for F&W, again)




So thats us. There should be some reappearances from a few of the friends in the pictures. Some have expressed wanting to come. I am going to include them in the planning because I would LOVE if they came.

This is L & D.


They are great friends of ours and were a lot of fun to travel with last time! I'm pretty sure if I plan a trip, they will come!

This is Pants. (& me)


He is KC's BFF and a blast to travel with! We really had great times together last time!

Last but not least will be my BFF, L & her daughter H. They live 45 minutes from WDW and have come to see us every time we have gone down. She and I were estranged for about 8 years and found each other randomly on the computer. We actually had our reunion at CBR when KC & I went for F&W. Now we can't see each other enough- we have 8 years to make up for.

Here they are after H's surprise Bday makeover!


So that about covers it! If anyone else comes out fo the wood work I'll keep you all in the loop!

Kat you are a beautiful woman! I know nothing about wrestling - was it locally or did you travel? Is that how you hurt your back?

Why thanks! Yep wrestling is what did me in, 6 years of getting dropped on your back a lot is not good for you, in case you didn't know. LOL. I basically traveled the tri state area doing it. Anywhere I could, I did wrestle.'

OK SO we have a cast....total will end up being 7 (I think)...

So my next step is where to stay...

What do you all know about US hotels?

I know, I know. But next year the new Harry Potter thing will be open and I wanna go! Plus I have never been to US. I am not much for thrill rides (unless they are WDW) but my friends are , so I think 2 days at US is in order.

So help me out?! Where should I stay and why?

Then I need to try and pick a resort for WDW...

We have stayed at: ASMusic, Pop, CBR, CSR, POR, POFQ, & BWV. I want something affordable but I'm leaning towards a moderate. LAst trip with the friends we stayed at ASMusic in a family suite, which was great, but i'd like something new. DH is in LOVE with POFQ so I'm leaning towards it. We'd end up getting 2 rooms I guess. Unless someone else has any suggestions?!

Discuss...

Have you thought about renting points from a DVC person and getting a 2 bedroom suite? There should be room there for all of you. And Old Key West has really big 2 bedroom suites for the least amount of points. Just something to think about if you all want to stay together.

My thoughts exactly. I think you'd have SOOO much more fun in a 2 bedroom DVC!
