371 Days...Basic Information, The Who

Our trip is still over a year away so I thought we could use this time for introductions.  I'm a 36 year old, father of three, happily married and son of the two greatest parents a guy could ask for.  That is also the list of everyone going on this family vacation.  My son is 8 and my two daughters are 6 and 3.  My parents are 72 and 70.  So you can see there is quite an age range on this trip.  Planning should be fun!

My parents took me and my three older brothers to WDW in 1981.  We went for two days.  EPCOT was still being built so all we had was the Magic Kingdom.  That was all I needed.  I was around 6 at that time and I can still vividly remember many of the sights and smells that I experienced there.  Walt Disney World made a very deep and real impression on me.  An impression that has also been placed upon my kids.

I have been to the World three times without my family and twice I have gone to Disneyland.  Our first family trip was in 2006 with my then 3 year old son and 1 year old daughter.  That trip was also my wife's first.  Sad isn't it?  We stayed at the All-Star Sports.  Good trip (more details later, heck we have 371 days to analyze all the mistakes and things we learned). On our next trip we took our  son, daughter and six month old baby.  That was hard!  We also took my parents.  We all stayed at the Cabins at the Fort Wilderness.  Another good trip.  I will go into much more detail about that trip later.  Two words, stomach bug!  Learned a BUNCH from that trip.

So there you have all the participants of our 2012 trip and probably more information then you really cared to know.

You left out your crush on Cinderella. How you had to get a picture with her.
