2012 is off to a great start!! We are planning our family's first trip to Walt Disney World in late April/early May!! We have not told the kids, we are planning to surprise them a few days before we go. I have found a new hobby, writing articles for a Disney blog called Tips From the Disney Diva! I am the Budget Diva and specialize in writing articles on traveling to Disney on a budget with children.
We are staying off property at the Embassy Suites in Orlando and driving to save $$. We are also not going to be going to all four theme parks (definetly not going to Epcot with 3 kids under age 4). Allie will actually turn 5 on the day that we will be in Magic Kingdom! Such a lucky girl to be able to celebrate her special day at the happiest place in the World! She is going to be so excited!
I am not thrilled about the idea of driving 12 hours to Florida on I-95 considering my fear of highways and 95 in general but I am hoping to take some meds prior to leaving and have a nice long nap :-) haha We are planning to drive straight to Florida, only stopping for diaper changes and to feed the kiddies.
Stay tuned for more Disney details as we get closer to April! I am still trying to decide which character meal to do (we are only going to do one as they are SO overpriced!) and which parks to do which days. We plan to go to Magic Kingdom two days and Hollywood Studios one day. We are debating going to Animal Kingdom all together. We will be in Orlando Sunday thru Saturday but we plan to take a few days 'off' to relax at the hotel pool and go to Downtown Disney.
