Welcome! For those of you that don’t know me – I am Dorine - but I go by "D~" on The Dis... I subsidize all of our trips to Disney with my sewing of custom items, I love what I do, and I love that I am able to add magic to many trips to WDW - including our own.





















Most of my days are spent here - in my sewing room... Everything I make and do is done by vintage machine - the newest sewing machine I own is from 1963... I am very adamant about keeping all of my items One Of A Kind (OOAK) – I love that I do, and I love that it adds magic to so many lives! :lovestruc






My girls and I are well known for our “girls trips” to Disney, they have "grown up" here on The Dis, as I started writing TRs when they were about 11 and 12. Many of you have followed along in our lives for almost a decade! I am very proud of both of my girls for the wonderful young adults that they are becoming. I enjoy spending my time with them, and I believe it shows in every post I write and every photo we take. They are my entire world, their smiles and laughter brighten every single day, I am so very lucky!













My DH is Josh… He normally doesn’t play a role in our trips, other than me finding ways to get his blessing for another girls trip… For once – he might play an unknown (and active) roll in one of my PTRs. :lmao: Sort of. :scratchin









I might as well take a moment to introduce the girls’ boys too, since I do talk about them pretty frequently… Allison has been dating Gus for many years, maybe 5 now? Or longer? I don’t keep track. LOL Victoria has been dating Carter for almost 2 years. Both men are great guys who treat the girls well & both of them are active in our family life. :lovestruc







Then there is Max… Often referred to in my TRs/PTRs as “MM” which stands for many things… Maxy-Moo-Moo, Maxy-Moose, or Maxy-Moosie… He comes to all of those names – which is sad and sometimes funny. He is a “crazy man” – he is often told, and has definitely earned that title… He does some of the craziest things! But we all love him, and our family wouldn’t be nearly as interesting without him in it.









And then there’s Cooper. Cooper came home to live with us in 2014, as an 8 week old puppy. He loves his big brother and picks on him constantly... His big brother loves him and allows him to do this. It's been wonderful for our family to add Cooper... and he is just the most adorable & naughty boy. :lovestruc














I think that's everyone?

So, this trip just sort of “snuck up on us” - again… As far as we knew, we would not be going back to WDW as a trio, and definitely not any time before 2020.



This trip is a very happy accident… The last time the 3 of us were in WDW together was in January of 2018, and it wasn’t a very happy trip – as most of you know, V came down with Influenza B while we were there, and I came down with it the day we got home. This truly put a damper on our trip.



I’ve been wanting to go back… But with a few other big trips on the horizon, I didn’t think it would happen until our BIG family trip in the Spring of 2020.



Josh has now nick-named me an “impulse traveler”… I think there is good reason for this?



A good friend of mine, and fellow Diser (Suzi) was going to WDW for her Birthday – I’ve wanted to surprise her since she booked the trip – but sadly airfare had been ridiculous…



I was planning to just go by myself for a few days, but then V overheard me… Then we Facetimed Allison… And the rest is history.


Disney… In June??? We’ve done August before (twice) – we are “pros” at Disney in the heat! Or so we think…


Join us for 7 nights/6 days, May 30 – June 5, 2019… We stayed at the best Deluxe, non-Disney, Disney resort on property… Shades of Green. We LOVE SoG! ::yes::







Lots of new rides, lots of new food, lots of new experiences… I was there for my 44th birthday! I’ve NEVER been in WDW for my birthday before! :woohoo:



Lots of old friends, lots of surprises – and one BIG surprise on my birthday – pulled off by some great friends! I think everyone knew about this one, but me? :lmao: And it’s epic!


So, join us again, as we bring you along on another bittersweet and amazing adventure, as we share our lives, our joys, our triumphs and most importantly – our magical memories with all of you!





I am putting the link to a YouTube video that Allison made after we returned home from our trip. Basically - I think I can just post the link, you can watch the 5 minute video (it's better with sound on) and then I have no reason to continue this TR. :lmao: ::yes:: It is the best synopsis of our entire trip, I think most of the "views" are mine - as I've watched it many times. LOL




Thanks for following along. :lovestruc

    I guessed right. You were on your trip when I posted. ;)

    I'm looking for hints about your trip and I am guessing that you had really hot weather. The sun is strong in June. We have gone to WDW twice in June with our two oldest grandsons and they complained about how hot it was.

    I can't wait to hear about the birthday surprise. Knowing your girls, I am sure that it was very special. :) And then there is a the bittersweet part which hopefully only means that you are sad that it is over. :)

    Yay! A trip report! Love the video:) We were visiting family in FL from June 2-6 and it was hot! We were on the coast though ( supposedly cooler than inland) so I am curious to see how the temperature ware for you guys at the parks. Can't wait to read along!

    I am here! I love your TR title (“The Heat is On” is the on and off theme song for my beloved St. Louis Cardinals ❤) LOL
    The heat was definitely ON ☀🔥☀ in Florida but we still had a great trip, it was awesome getting to spend part of a day with you and your girls!
    Happily following along ✨✨✨
