  • Travel Method: Plane, Shuttle Service
  • Resort: ASMoR

  • Ages Represented in Group: Elementary, Adult

  • Comments: In Shelly's words, "My 10 year old daughter and I took a November 2001 "Mother/Daughter" Disney World trip together. I wrote this trip report first and foremost for my daughter so that she would remember everything we did and saw while there. It's my first attempt at writing a trip report, so I now have a new appreciation at just how much work goes into writing one! Whew!"

Sharon Burcie - November 2001

  • Time of Year: Fall
  • Travel Method: Plane, Shuttle Service
  • Resort: ASMoR, CSR
  • Accommodations: Standard Room
  • Ages Represented in Group: Teen, Adult

  • Comments: Sharon and her son Evan thoroughly enjoyed their trip to WDW in mid November.  In addition to enjoying the parks, attractions, and shows, the twosome enjoyed meeting up with several friends that they've met online over the years.  This is a great play-by-play report!

  • Resort: PR, BCR
  • Accommodations: Standard Room

  • Accommodations: Villa Vacation Home

  • Comments:  Tifany and Randy brought their moms and a nephew on this early November trip to WDW.  The report includes a great pre-trip planning section as well as a fun-to-read play-by-play of the actual vacation.  One of the trip highlights was a very "in-theme" meal at 50's Prime Time Cafe.  You'll have to read the report to find out about it.

Michelle Clark - November 2001

  • Comments: Michelle and her family joined up with some friends for a nice week-long visit to WDW in early November.  The Clark clan slowed down from it's frantic pace of last year's trip, and thoroughly enjoyed their trip.  They enjoyed the Hoop Dee Doo and some great meals at other WDW restaurants including Cape May Cafe, 'Ohanna, Chef Mickey's and Boma.

Mark L. Fendrick - November 2001

  • WDW Experience Represented in Group: Veteran
  • Comments: Mark and Sandy flew to Orlando to spend some time with their CM daughter Iris in early November.  Traveling for the first time since the September 11th events, Mark covers some of the security changes.  He also gives a classic play-by-play of the entire trip in his usual fashion.

Pat DiFranco - October 2001

  • Accommodations: 1 Bedroom Vacation Home
  • Ages Represented in Group: Adult
  • WDW Experience Represented in Group: Veteran, Frequent, Infrequent, Rookie, DVC Member
  • Comments: Pat describes the DiFranco trip philosophy this way: "We don't have a Comedy Warehouse hook to our trips, or an Off Kilter hook, or even a park commando hook. I guess you'd say we have a relaxing and eating hook." Towards the end of the report, Pat writes, "In reading this over I realized that we were pretty laid back this trip as far as seeing all the park attractions."

  • WDW Experience Represented in Group: Infrequent, Rookie

  • Accommodations: Standard Room
  • Ages Represented in Group: Adult

Andrew Della Vecchia - October 2001

  • Time of Year: Fall
  • Travel Method: Plane, Rental Car
  • Resort: AKL, Offsite
  • Accommodations: Standard Room
  • Ages Represented in Group: Adult
  • WDW Experience Represented in Group: Frequent, DVC Member
  • Comments: In Andrew's patented summary-style he describes his most recent trip in which he states: "I am calling this trip the one where "we tested the system." Our flights changed, the rental cars changed, our luggage was lost, and our room reservations changed. You would think that caused a lot of commotion, but it really was not much of problem at all. The service in the Orlando area is very good, if not excellent."

Paul Schultz - October 2001

  • Time of Year: Fall
  • Travel Method: Plane, Rental Car
  • Resort: BWR, OKWR
  • Accommodations: Standard Room
  • Ages Represented in Group: Elementary, Adult
  • WDW Experience Represented in Group: Frequent, DVC Member
  • Comments:  This is the play-by-play report of the trip in which Paul, his wife, and two sons took advantage of their DVC membership for the first time in October.  This was a short trip, only four nights on site, but the Schultz's enjoyed it thoroughly.   

David O'Dell - October 2001

  • Time of Year: Fall
  • Travel Method: Plane, Shuttle Service
  • Resort: BWR
  • Accommodations: 2 Bedroom Vacation Home

Larry Wilmot - October 2001

  • Time of Year: Fall
  • Travel Method: Plane, Shuttle Service
  • Resort: ASSR
  • Accommodations: Standard Room
  • Ages Represented in Group: Elementary, Teen, Adult
  • WDW Experience Represented in Group: Veteran
  • Comments: The Wilmots traveled to WDW in part to stage their own personal protest against the terrorists that attacked the New York and Washington.  Of course, spending a week in Central Florida is always fun... and Larry and his family (and the various friends they met up with during the trip) made the most of the impromptu vacation.

Lisa Cubbon - October 2001

  • Time of Year: Fall
  • Travel Method: Personal Car
  • Resort: BWR
  • Accommodations: Standard Room
  • Ages Represented in Group: Adult
  • WDW Experience Represented in Group: Veteran
  • Comments:  Lisa and her husband Andy spent a week on the concierge floor of the Boardwalk Inn.  Besides some great commentary on the trip by Lisa, Andy chimes in every once in a while just to add color commentary.  The meal descriptions (especially the dinner at California Grill) are worth the price of reading this one!

Sue Holland - October 2001

  • Time of Year: Fall
  • Travel Method: Personal Car
  • Resort: Offsite
  • Accommodations: Friend's Home
  • Ages Represented in Group: Adult
  • WDW Experience Represented in Group: Veteran
  • Comments: This is a very short report of a very short trip.  The whole point of the trip was to get the help of a friend with a computer, meet up with some friends at Pleasure Island (got to get in that Comedy Warehouse fix, you know) and maybe see the Hoop Dee Doo on the Saturday night.  Here's how it went...
