    Introduction and Travel

    April 19-27, 2009

    We had been to Disney during the Flower And Garden Festival once before, in 1999. We remembered how nice everything looked and were eager to see it again, although it wasn’t totally a focus of this trip, like with Food & Wine. We planned to just do everything we wanted, especially now that DD#2 was tall enough to ride everything but Rock’n’Roller Coaster.

    Introduction

    To put this trip in perspective, this was an adult-oriented trip. DW and I first traveled to Walt Disney World almost 10 years to the day of this trip (it was the first time for either of us), and we decided as an early 10th Anniversary trip (our actual wedding anniversary is just after Christmas) it would just be the two of us, on our first trip as DVC members. Don’t worry…we are taking the kids (and the grandparents who put up with them for 5 days) in the first week of December for an even longer time for our first Disney Christmas.
