Sun, Sand, and Disney!-A Disney and Beach Club PTR!!-Update 8/6 mini update

Hi Everyone!

This is my first PTR, so I hope to make this as exciting and fun as possible. I guess a good way to start is to introduce the Castmembers:
Our Family:



Nancy: Thats me! I am a 25 year old lover of all things Disney and Pink! I am a very girly person so you will definitely see me get very excited about little things a lot through this PTR. I am a Senior Accountant, this can be very boring at times so to make things a little more lively I am also a junior varsity cheerleading coach on the side .

Brian: My DH ,27, who also loves Disney! I know can a girl get so lucky! Brian is a Senior Business Systems Analyst and loves anything to do with computers and video games. He has been to Disney many times as a child.

The two little fur babies in the picture are Wizard and Ace, the newest addition to our family. We got them a month after we got married and they are six months old now. They are definitely not that small any more! Unfortunately dogs are not allowed at Disney so they will not be joining us for this trip.

Our Trip: We have a trip planned for September 19-26, 2009. We will be staying at the Beach Club Villa's, in a Studio Villa . My IL's will be joining us on this trip. I am so excited to stay at the Beach Clubs we have never stayed here before. I love the beach so I can not wait for Stormalong Bay! We just booked everything this morning so I will definitely have more to come soon!

I just wanted to say Hi and introduce ourselves, I will post more soon, I promise!


Chapters:
1. Up, Up, and Away!

Yes, we've stayed at the BC in 2003 and then again in 2006. It is so wonderful! The bright airy colors of the lobby and the sandy beach along with the pool are so wonderful! I love the proximity to EPCOT and the boat ride to the Studios is so relaxing! Best part is access to the Boardwalk Inn, Yacht Club and Swan/Dolphin for dining - only a short minute walk to each!!

PS: I too agree that the little things are what make Disney so special for my family!

I love the planning DVD's, I also love how On Demand has a Disney section, I watch it all the time.

I can't wait for Stormalong Bay! We stayed at the WL for our honeymoon and it was a beautiful resort but I think the beach clubs will be more us. I can't wait to go!

Up, Up, and Away!

I figured I would share our travel plans with you. We will be traveling by plane obviously, Pittsburgh to Orlando is a pretty far drive. We found a wonderful deal with Air Tran. Its a non stop flight both way, I couldn't believe it. Has anyone flown air tran before? We are set to depart on 9/19 at 10:52 and arriving in Orlando at 1:07, which still leaves plenty of time for Disney that day and we don't have to get up at the crack of dawn to get to the airport.

We will be using Magical Express to and from the airport. I just love magical express! I love how you don't have to get your luggage from baggage claim and even the little video they play on your journey to your hotel. It gets me so excited for disney! Next stop...DISNEY!!! And then the fun begins.

I love AirTran..have flown them before..They do have XM Radio which is really cool. They do have complimentary headsets (well they did) but I'd bring your own. OH and they do have free soft drinks (last time I flew them). Their Boeing 717's have two seats on one side and three on the other--but I love AirTran

Hi Nancy! I am just joining the party, but I can't wait to read more. September is a fantastic time to go! I was there this past September and it was great. They already had the Halloween decor up and it looked amazing. Are you thinking of doing Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party?

Oh good that makes me feel better! We always fly US Air or Midwest and I get nervous about trying new airlines. After this last time with US Air though we won't be flying them anymore unless we have too. Thanks for the info!

Hi! Thanks for reading so far! I am so glad to hear that September is a good time to go, I was worried about the heat and hurricanes. I don't mind if it is hot just not like blistering hot where you can't even breath. I really want to do Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party but my DH doesn't really want to. We did the Very Merry Christmas Party last November and we both loved so I hope to talk him into the halloween one. Have you done it before?
