Hi all, it's been a long while since my last PTR! To those (most) of you who don't know me, I travelled to WDW the first time with my mom in 2008. It was her second time (but after nearly 30 years!), and my first. We caught the Disney bug SEVERELY. Yet our means were limited, so we could only go back in 2012, and then again in 2013, thanks to an AP. I have Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, which is a rare genetic condition, with many physical problems (it's a collagen problem, and about 80% of our bodies involve collagen... do the math, it's not pretty!). This is why our first trip lasted a good 2 weeks, and I was in my wheelchair... which was no fun at all. We decided we'd never do that again! In 2012 ans 2013, I was a little bit stronger, thanks to a new medicine, so I went on my own two feet... yet one day in 2013 I had to rent a scooter... which is still not that bad. And that had been our decision! Take a longer trip so we can do less everyday, and rent a scooter if need be, so my mom wouldn't be behind me, pushing the wheelchair the whole time. (As I'm not strong enough to push myself, except for in the apartment). Because of my health, I only work from home, very-part time (as in less than 10hrs a week... which is still a bit too much for my health, but good for my mood and I don't have much choice if I want to make ends meet!). I do proofreading and translation, both English and French. (I'm from Montréal, in Québec, Canada... French is my native language). I now live with my SO, and thankfully, he wants to visit Disney too! He's far from a Disney enthusiast, he prefers cartoons like Family Guy than The Little Mermaid, but he wanted to go see The Beauty and the Beast (thanks to my health we missed it). And I mean HE wanted to go see it, not just agreed to go with me! He had watched a lot of Disney movies growing up, and is a kid at heart, like I am. He also went to WDW (mostly MK) at least once, with his grand-parents, as a kid. We were planning our coming years travels, to get an idea when to plan what and how much money to put aside... Disney was in our future, but we didn't know when. And then it hit me... I will be turning 40 in 2019... so I asked Yanik (Y for future reference!) if he would mind to go that year... or for my 45th, maybe? He said in 2 years was perfect, and he genuinely sounded excited to go! Our plan is to travel about once a year, with maybe some short camping trip in between, if we can afford it. We are far from rich, but prioritize travel and technologic gadgets (we're both geeks, and a bit nerd too hehe), So, the plan thus far is: Mexico (or a better Caribbean deal) for a week next winter (end of January, beginning of February). Camping to the Maritime provinces and visit a friend of mine in Halifax in late summer 2018... if we can afford it... Maybe some more camping, around our beautiful province, in early summer 2019... again, if we can afford it... And FINALLY, WDW for about 2 weeks, I think, in the fall of 2019. This might sometimes fall off topic to become a multi-trip PTR, since one trip will influence this one and vice-versa! The essentials: Where: WDW Orlando!... maybe a few Universal days too. When: Fall 2019 Who: Me (40 by then) and Y, my SO. Here we are : Next up: early pre-PTR planning!
