Lisa Co-Guide to Sharing the Adventure: Disney World Trip Reports
The Williams Family is headed back for trip #11! Just booked last week.
Date: July 16-26
Adventurers: Me (will be 47 by then), Husband (will be 46 by then), and son (10). It will be our 11th trip to the World!
Resort/Hotel: POFQ--our second time staying there.
Celebration: Our 11th anniversary on July 20.
Meetings: None that I know of, but look for us wearing matching shirts!
This will be our first trip without the Dining Plan as it is just too expensive with our son now having to be an "adult" on the plan. We still have ADR's made and I'm hoping for summer special, similar to what we had in July 2011. This will be the most days we have stayed at the World, though we have had longer vacations combining sea/land experiences.
Traveling to Florida in July isn't as bad as people think. We are from the midwest and for most of July last year, it was hotter where we live than it was in Orlando.

Adventurers: me (49), DD18 (will turn 19 during the trip), and DD16
Resort/Hotel: POR Royal Guest Room
Celebration: Trip is to celebrate youngest DD's sweet sixteen birthday. Her birthday is actually earlier in the year, but she asked to go to WDW for her 16th birthday and this was the only time period that would work for us. We will also celebrate oldest DD's 19th birthday since that actually occurs during our trip.
We will be boarding the Auto Train on July 23rd and arriving in Florida on the 24th. We haven't been to WDW since 2010 so we are really looking forward to this trip.
