Adventurers: Me, DH, DS (13) and DD (18 months). We have quite the age range to manage!
Celebration: DD's first trip and our anniversary
Our last visit to WDW was on our honeymoon at POFQ in Aug 2009. It's so strange to be going back the next visit at the same time to the same hotel, but with 2 kids. We've never traveled with a toddler like this before so we're kind of flying by the seat of our pants!
