3 Kids and a 40th at My Castle – Pre Trippie Part 1 - Introduction 447 Days to go. It’s me again!!!! After the huge success of my trip report I’m back again to plan the next one with you. I’m going to do this Blog styly a la Jodie and share all my planning, ideas and new things I find in my research!!! Let me introduce us all again. Me – DB – Teresa 40 in November but celebrating early in WDW. Planner, payer and lover of all things Disney since the day I was born. Robyn – DD – 15 (at time of trip) My angel, my best friend and an absolute star. So sensible but allows herself to be a child when in Disney and loves Tinkerbell. Jack – DS – 13 (at time of trip) My baby. Typical boy. Always late in and lover of Stitch. Gets the most excited of all of us and loves to help with the planning. Not planning on getting lost this time! Anyway most of you know us so I’ll get on. Usually when we return from Disney I am an absolutes wreck, suffering with the Disney blues and am inconsolable for weeks. However when we returned in 2007 I promised the kids we were going back in 2009 so I knew I had another trip coming and was actually on a high. We spent weeks uploading all the photos, ordering photopass cd’s, movies, books and putting the 7 hours of tape onto DVD’s. Jack used Windows Movie Maker and added music and transitions and they are fab!!!! All thoughts of Florida were fading as Christmas approached and the chaos of presents and trees took over. I had something else to be excited about and boy do I get excited about Christmas. The kids had more surprises as I’d managed to get them a Wii which I saved until Boxing Day morning. Jack had a new LCD TV for his room (you may remember my bargain from Asda) and Robyn had an Ipod Nano that she was desperate for. On New Year’s Eve I promised the kids that in 2008 we would be booking for Disney and thoughts soon returned to planning………..
