Welcome friends to this wonderful trio PTR! It is a trio in two parts. 1. Because we are celebrating three things and 2. Because it will be a combined effort of myself, my mother @LisaBelle and my aunt @TangledTina aka the Almighty Planners. We channeled our inner Phil Dunphy to come up with this title.

Why: As you may have been able to piece together by the title we are celebrating our family vacation, my high school graduation (thank you, thank you, please hold your applause) and my parent's anniversary.
When: Trip commences at 0800 hours on July 13 and will conclude on July 23.
Who: My aunt's family- my Uncle Mark, my cousin Spence and my Aunt Tina.

My family- Allie (me), Lisa, my brother Adam and my dad Paul.

Where: Well Walt Disney World of course! But more specifically The Contemporary.
This trip also happens to be 10 years after our last whole-family Disney vacation.

I promise we were excited to be there despite the major RBF (Resting B*$#% Face) going on in the photo. Sadly my grandma and grandpa passed away so they will only be joining us in spirit and the girl on the far right is my cousin and she too will not be joining us as she is adulting in the real world BLEH!
My mom wanted me to be sure and tag @Longers , @Tuvalu , @blgauger , @bee , @prfctlyximprct , @Doc Disney.
We plan to entertain. Enjoy!

The Plan: Friday morning hit the road at 8 am driving from Cincinnati in two cars and caravanning all the way. After about 14 hours of driving we plan to stop in northern Florida for the night.
Saturday we plan to arrive at The Contemporary at about 3 pm. We will explore The Contemporary and take the monorail to Ohana that evening for dinner.

We are also planning to watch Happily Ever After from the beach at The Poly.
Sunday: First park day! We will be up bright and early thanks to @LisaBelle I mean that in the best and worst ways haha. We have FP for Space Mountain, BTMR, 7DMT, and lunch at BOG. We will likely be in the park from rope drop to close with a short intermission to nap. Side note huge S/O to @TangledTina for being up bright and early on fast pass day and managing to secure FP for every attraction we wanted! She spent hours tweaking the times to fit our busy schedule.
Monday: We will be in AK with FP for the Safari, FOP, EE, and Tusker House ROL package for dinner. This will be the first time any of us have seen Pandora and ROL. I guess you could say we are excited.

Tuesday: Adam and Spence are playing 9 holes of golf while the rest of us sleep in. We'll be hitting Epcot from mid afternoon to close. With FP for LWTL, Soarin', Nemo, and dinner at Chefs de France. We haven't seen Soarin' around the world so also very excited for that.

Wednesday: We will be starting our day at Epcot in the morning and spending the later half of the day at MK. Some of us are rope dropping Soarin' and some will be headed for Frozen Ever After. We all have FP for Test Track, Spaceship Earth and Epcot Character Spot. We are eating lunch at Biergarten and will head out for a rest with full bellies. MK has evening EMH so we will head there in the evening and stay until we get kicked out. And I don't know about everyone else but I'm not going out without a fight.
Thursday: Adam will be playing 18 holes of golf at The Palm while the rest of us go to the Bon Voyage Adventure breakfast. In the afternoon we'll head to AK where we plan to ride Na'vi River Journey, EE, and Kali River Rapids.

Friday: We are heading to Hollywood Studios to rope drop TSMM and we have FP for ToT, Star Tours, and Slinky Dog Dash. We will eat lunch at Mama Melrose for the Fantasmic dining package. After lunch we will head out for a break and return in the evening to hopefully ride RR and see Fantasmic.

Saturday: Our last day :cry::cry::cry::cry: we will be at MK all day. FP for Splash, BTMR, and SM. No dining reservations just going to eat whatever we want.

Great start @TheMARVELousAllieBrown! Your Pre-Trip Report has been very informative and entertaining so far. It seems everything you learned in school is paying off on your first post-graduation assignment, cheers! Thanks also for the "shout out" regarding the hours I spent toiling away in front of the computer trying not to ruin everyone's Vacaygraduversary before it even started, by failing to secure all requested fast passes at the optimal times for our group. Actually, it was quite fun, thanks to the initial adrenalin rush of racing to grab FP before they were all gone:)
