Hello all! My name is Shantelle and I'm a Disney planning addict. Which is why I'm starting my very first PTR! Since I haven't done one of these before, please bear with me. If you have suggestions, let me know! So...onto the cast of characters! All two of them. First up: Me! I've been to WDW more times than I can count and can never get enough time there. I used to work on Main Street, miss it, but live out of state (for now - we plan on moving back). I don't work outside our home right now, but do some blogging, photography, and some general writing to keep busy. Second: The husband, Andrew! He's only been going since 2012 and I was the one to take him! I tease him that our actual anniversary is the first day of that October trip, as if he hadn't at least liked it then we would probably not have lasted (we'd only been dating for a short while at that point, FYI). He's awesome at his job, and loves data analysis and Disney! We've been DVC members since that first trip in 2012 (SSR + VGF) and APers since 2016! We also have two pups but they're staying behind with a very nice house sitter. Which Ava will not be happy about To finish the intros, here's a photo of my husband and I! The reason for this trip: Disney, of course. But the real reason is I'm turning 30 on May 8th! And what better place to spend a special (or regular) birthday than at a Disney Park? We’ll be there May 5-12. I've done May in the parks a few times now, and I'm hoping that it'll be somewhat cool during our stay. Otherwise it will end up being a very sweaty trip I've got a lot to plan, two big things are down though! Booking our DVC resort and flights, but I'll talk more about that in the next post. Nice to (virtually) meet you all and I'll see you next time!
