The most magical place on earth!

In September, the Goldmans packed their bags, donned their ears, and headed down to visit a particular Mouse at his house.  That's right, we went to Walt Disney World!   (Thanks Mimi and Poppy!!)

The first adventure of the trip was Aidan's very first plane ride.  He made it through his first flight like a pro.  He really enjoyed the experience having a ticket, a carry-on, and flying up in the clouds.

Throughout the 10 days spent down in "The World" was full of adventure of as well. It even included 2 days to detour to the Universal Studios.  Aidan definitely had such a great time on his first Disney trip.  And's possible, we may have created a Disney Monster.  Even to this day, 5 months later, Aidan still talks about going back to Disney.  (Mindy likes that idea too.)

There is so much to recap, and so little time to write it.

But let me give a few quick recommendations for some things that really helped make the planning very efficient, and the trip itself very easy and enjoyable.  Between my own mother and myself, we had a good collection of Disney related planning books: Birnbaum Guides Walt Disney World,  Passporter's Walt Disney World, and The Unofficial Guide to Walt Disney World [and with Kids version].  Each was useful in its own way.
They are FILLED with post-it tabs and highlighter marks.  I became a member of both the Passporter's and Unofficial Guide's Touring Plan communities and I am still an active "stalker" and occasional contributor, happy to provide my own 2 cents based on our recent experience.

A BIG shout out to Buena Vista Scooter Rentals (!    My mom, "Mimi," took a spill during our 2nd day at Universal, with 3 days left in the trip.  She ended up breaking her foot.  The Buena Vista Scooter Rentals folks delivered the scooter to Caribbean Beach Resort.  It was a very big help.  My mom was able to enjoy part of the following day at EPCOT and also made it so much easier to get around the very LARGE property of CBR.

I have sooooo much more to add to recap this trip included other tips and tricks we figured out.
