Brent and the kids are going to see Cinderella and Ariel, and celebrate birthdays!

Hello all!

I am back and ready to tell you all about our upcoming trip to Disney. This time it’s just me, Brent, Cinderella fan extraordinaiire, my daughter Jordan, and my son, Brendan. Those of you who have followed us before know that it’s usually my lovely wife, Liz and myself. Well this time it’s just us and our kids. Liz took Cheyenne back in November, now it’s our turn!

Introductions are in order. My son Brendan is 13 years old, (14 at the end of March) His favorite character is Mickey Mouse. He’s in 8th grade now and will be a High School freshmen at the end of the school year. He loves video games and sports. It is not uncommon for him to find himself in the middle of a pick up game of basketball or Floor Hockey at our local YMCA. He will probably strike out on his own a lot on this trip as he is a very independent young man. I’m certain Disney Quest will see a lot of him on this trip. He was last here in August of 2010. Here are a few pictures:







His hair is much shorter now!

Next up is my daughter, Jordan. She is 15 (sweet 16 in March!) She is almost as big a fan of Ariel as I am of Cinderella. She joined the High School swim team this last Fall and can't wait to tell Ariel all about that. I myself was inspired by Jordan's swim accomplishments so I am in the process of learning how to swim. Maybe I'll get a chance to tell Ariel about that too. She wants to meet Ariel as many times as possible. She also hasn't been since August of 2010. Here are a few pictures:





And last but not least, your storyteller, Cinderella`s biggest fan, Liz`s husband, Brent. 45 year old devoted Father, husband, and Cinderella idolizer. Over the last few trips my wife and I have made we have managed to meet and leave such an impression on the princesses that they remember us. In fact when Liz and Cheyenne went by themselves without me many of the princesses were asking where I was. One of them even kissed a picture of myself and Cindi.
Here's a few pictures of me and Cindi from past trips.





Here are some pictures of the three of us:





Since both kids birthdays are in March and our trip is in late February, we are celebrating their birthdays while we are there. I think we will have a special connection with Aurora because of what happened on her 16th birthday. . Jordan's 16th will be March 13th.

Here are the specifics of our trip :

Dates: Friday Feb 22 - Sunday Mar 3
Resort: Art of Animation little mermaid rooms. (Jordan my Ariel lover is so excited about this!)
Tickets: 10 day with hoppers + Fun and more
Rental Car: Yes

Our plans:

Arrival Day Friday Feb 22:
Land around noon, get rental car, stop at walmart for snacks, provisions and adequate adult beverage supply. Hopefully go to the Magic Kingdom and see the Princesses then Monorail over to Epcot for an 8:00 dinner at Akershus.

Saturday Feb 23:
7:30 am breakfast at Chef Mickey’s then probably the Magic Kingdom. Perhaps a water park Midday if it’s warm. Park of choice in the evening or just explore the resort.

Sunday Feb 24:

Definitely Magic Kingdom for evening EMH and dinner at Tony’s Town Square.

Monday Feb 25:

Studios day; 50’s Prime lunch

Tuesday Feb 26:

Animal Kingdom day

19000 Park Faire dinner

Wednesday Feb 27:

Epcot day, Breakfast at Akershus Dinner at Coral Reef


Thursday Feb 28

We will decide which park while we’re there. Breakfast at Cape May. We have a reservation for dinner at 1900 Park Faire but may cancel. It will depend on if we meet one of our friends...

Friday Mar 1

Epcot in the morning.
Magic Kingdom in the evening. Be our Guest for dinner. Can’t wait for this one.

Saturday Mar 2
Cinderella’s Royal Table for breakfast.
Maybe Epcot in midday?

Sunday Mar 3, Departure day.

I will be back soon with more details of our plans. It's just a month away!

Brent
