Hi everyone, my name is Caroline, my daughter Andi and I travel together to Disney and have an awesome time doing so! I thought I would join in with some pre trip planning with you all. Andi and I have been traveling to Disney together on Mother/Daughter trips since 2011. Our family consists of Andi (17), Jack (23), and Hubby Joe. Joe and Jack have been to Disney twice with us as a family in 2005 and 2010. After those two trips, they declared they were done with Disney trips. Andi and I, however, were just getting started! Andi fell in love with Disney and each time we go she loves it more. We really love traveling together, we get along really well and she is a great tour guide and traveler. I created a Disney monster after our first trip together in 2011. Fast forward to now and we have done 14 trips together, rented points for DVC villas 4 times, found a great TA deal for the end of August, and just renewed our AP for another year! Our August trip this year will be from 8/26-9/4/17 at the Poly! We have stayed one other time at the Poly in November of 2014, that stay was right in the middle of heavy construction and I still loved it, so this trip will be free of resort construction yippee! We have decided to stay 9 glorious nights this time. Andi will be a senior after this summer so we thought why not! We really have a great rate at the Poly so that made our decision much easier. We will arrive early on the 26th, hopefully by noon and we leave about mid day on our last day. We also have a trip planned for Thanksgiving week, I know we are crazy, but this week works for us with Andi's school break and the guys will be off on their own trip. We have a reservation for POFQ from 11/21-11/27/17. I am hoping to get an AP discount for these dates. Andi's 18th Birthday is on 11/26 so this will be the first time she will be at Disney on her actual Birthday. Our trip in February is from 2/17-2/24/18, this is another busy time, however this is Andi's winter break,her break is always over Presidents Day! We are renting points and staying at BLT studio for the first time. Please join me in our planning for our upcoming trips. I will focus on the August trip, first day, dining, and our park plans. As you read along, let me know what your favorite dining, ride, and resorts are.
