Spring (April - May) 2003 WDW Trip Reports


Robert Kennedy - April 2003

  • Time of Year: Spring
  • Travel Method: Plane, rental car
  • Resort: Offsite
  • Accommodations: Standard
  • Ages Represented in Group: Adult
  • WDW Experience Represented in Group: Rookie, Infrequent, Veteran
  • Comments: For Robert and his wife, the opportunity for this trip arose shortly after the 2002 trip. They were offered a cheap trip in return for sitting through a time-share hard sell. Some people have way more dedication to going to Disney World than I do.

Victoria Hart - April 2003

  • Time of Year: Spring
  • Travel Method: Plane, rental car
  • Resort: CR
  • Accommodations: Standard and Standard Handicapped
  • Ages Represented in Group: Elementary, Teen, Adult, Senior
  • WDW Experience Represented in Group: Infrequent
  • Comments: Victoria had plenty of time to plan this trip and she made the best of it. More than a third of this report lays out how she put together a well planned trip.

Rosie Kay - May 2003

  • Time of Year: Spring
  • Travel Method: Plane, personal car
  • Resort: YCR
  • Accommodations: Concierge
  • Ages Represented in Group: Elementary, Adult, Senior
  • WDW Experience Represented in Group: Frequent
  • Comments: Making a family trip to Disney World is now a family tradition for the birthday of Kay's father. Local discounts really help Kay put this trip together and this report is a good example of the planning that can go into a successful trip.

Kaye Leszczynski - May 2003

  • Time of Year: Spring
  • Travel Method: Plane, rental car
  • Resort: ASSR, Offsite
  • Accommodations: Standard room
  • Ages Represented in Group: Adult
  • WDW Experience Represented in Group: Veteran
  • Comments: It looked like Kaye and her husband weren't going to get their annual Disney World trip this year, but in the end they got an unexpected reprieve. That scare, perhaps, made them appreciate the trip even more and it was one fo their best ever.

Bill Nuzzo - May 2003

  • Time of Year: Spring
  • Travel Method: Plane, rental car
  • Resort: CSR
  • Accommodations: 2-br condo
  • Ages Represented in Group: Adult
  • WDW Experience Represented in Group: Veteran
  • Comments: A series of great prices on airfare, hotel, and car rental made for a pretty cost-efficient trip for Bill and his daughter. This trip only confirmed his fondness for staying at Coronado Springs and it was another successful trip.

Lance Caros - April 2003

  • Time of Year: Spring
  • Travel Method: Plane, rental car
  • Resort: Offsite
  • Accommodations: 2-br condo
  • Ages Represented in Group: Elementary, Adult
  • WDW Experience Represented in Group: Veteran
  • Comments: A familiar name returns with his sixth trip report. For this trip they had a great friend for company, and their youngest was old enough to do everything with the rest of the family (with six reports over four years, we're practically watching those kids grow up!).

Amanda Parr - April 2003

  • Time of Year: Spring
  • Travel Method: Personal Car
  • Resort: FWC, PORFQ
  • Accommodations: Campsite, Standard
  • Ages Represented in Group: Pre-School, Adult
  • WDW Experience Represented in Group: Veteran
  • Comments: The perfect new job requires the perfect last vacation before returning to the grind. Though Amanda's husband doesn't get the Disney World thing, she had his blessing for a solo trip with their son.

Sheri Niklewski - May 2003

  • Time of Year: Spring
  • Travel Method: Personal Car
  • Resort: FWC
  • Accommodations: Cabins, campsite
  • Ages Represented in Group: Pre-School, Adult, Senior
  • WDW Experience Represented in Group: Rookie, Infrequent, Veteran
  • Comments: Sheri begins her report with a warning that it is long. And she knows that of which she speaks. But when bringing together 11 family members from around the country for a visit to Walt Disney World includes Memorial Day Weekend, how could it be anything but long. Enjoy.

Catharine Westbrook - May 2003

  • Time of Year: Spring
  • Travel Method: Plane, Rental Car
  • Resort: WL
  • Accommodations: Standard Room, Concierge Access
  • Ages Represented in Group: Toddler, Adult
  • WDW Experience Represented in Group: Rookie
  • Comments: Taking your 3-year-old daughter to visit grandma is a wonderful thing. When grandma lives an hour from Walt Disney World it is also an opportunity not to be missed. And on that hook did Catharine hang a wonderful five-day trip to the World.

Dan Weckerly - May 2003

  • Time of Year: Spring
  • Travel Method: Plane, Rental Car
  • Resort: PORR
  • Accommodations: Standard Room
  • Ages Represented in Group: Toddler, Elementary, Adult
  • WDW Experience Represented in Group: Rookie, Infrequent
  • Comments: Weckerlys are just the family this trip reports are meant to help. They love Disney World but hadn't made a trip since 1987. Wanting to make sure the event is as magical as possible for their three children, they used all the guides and tips they could find. We thank them for returning the favor by turning around and contributing a report of their own.

Sue Holland - May 2003

  • Time of Year: Spring
  • Travel Method: Personal Car
  • Resort: Offsite
  • Ages Represented in Group: Adult
  • WDW Experience Represented in Group: Veteran
  • Comments: For her final trip to Disney World in May (her third), Sue made a quick weekend trip to see a friend's last performance at Comedy Warehouse. Note: As Sue spend time at Pleasure Island and in other adult venues on this trip, this report has some information that may not be appropriate for young readers.

Katie Gladwell - May 2003

  • Time of Year: Spring
  • Travel Method: Plane, Shuttle
  • Resort: Dolphin
  • Accommodations: Standard Room
  • Ages Represented in Group: Adult
  • WDW Experience Represented in Group: Veteran
  • Comments: Katie and her friends made this trip for the express purpose of experiencing a Star Wars Weekend at MGM. Read ahead for details and help in deciding if you should plan on attending an event like this.

Sue Holland - May 2003

  • Time of Year: Spring
  • Travel Method: Personal Car
  • Resort: Offsite, OKWR
  • Accommodations: Standard Room
  • Ages Represented in Group: Adult
  • WDW Experience Represented in Group: Veteran
  • Comments: Her 10-day trip earlier in the month was not enough for Sue, so she headed back to the resort for Memorial Day weekend. A trip into Orlando reminds Sue why she hates downtown, but watching a favorite CM in a show makes it worth the effort. Note: As Sue spend time at Pleasure Island and in other adult venues on this trip, this report has some information that may not be appropriate for young readers.

Robin Goble - April/May 2003

  • Time of Year: Spring
  • Travel Method: Plane, Rental Car
  • Resort: ASMR, BCR, GFRS
  • Accommodations: Standard Room, Concierge
  • Ages Represented in Group: Adult
  • WDW Experience Represented in Group: Rookie, Infrequent, Veteran
  • Comments: Apparently the emotional response to Robin's last trip report ran strongly in favor of taking her sister on a trip to Disney World. So that is just what they did this time around. This week-long trip was another success and much fun was had all around.

Ellen Pillar - May 2003

  • Time of Year: Spring
  • Travel Method: Personal Car
  • Resort: ASMuR
  • Accommodations: Standard Room
  • Ages Represented in Group: Toddler, Pre-School, Adult
  • WDW Experience Represented in Group: Infrequent, Veteran
  • Comments: A couple 20-year-old, unused tickets (one from 1981 and another from 1985) to Magic Kingdom provide Ellen and her family the necessary excuse to for a quick visit. Universal Studios also received some attention.

Sarah McCoy - May 2003

  • Time of Year: Spring
  • Travel Method: Personal Car
  • Resort: Offsite
  • Accommodations: Studio
  • Ages Represented in Group: Adult
  • WDW Experience Represented in Group: Infrequent, Veteran
  • Comments: Sarah's husband, Bobby, is relatively new to life in a wheelchair. But they've quickly learned the difficulties. In this report, which focuses on the accessibility issues at Disney World, they're pleasantly surprised at how much they can do.

Tina Sullivan - April 2003

  • Time of Year: Spring
  • Travel Method: Personal Car
  • Resort: ASSR
  • Accommodations: Studio
  • Ages Represented in Group: Elementary, Teen, Adult
  • WDW Experience Represented in Group: Rookie, Infrequent
  • Comments: Tina and her brother's family made a very well documented trip in April and she was an infrequent visitor leading a clan of rookies. Though long, this is a well-written report, so enjoy.

Sue Holland - May 2003

  • Time of Year: Spring
  • Travel Method: Personal Car
  • Resort: Offsite, OKWR
  • Accommodations: Studio
  • Ages Represented in Group: Adult
  • WDW Experience Represented in Group: Veteran, DVC Member
  • Comments: Despite unusually warm weather, this 10-day trip provides more than enough good times to remind Sue why DVC is worth the money. Note: As Sue spend time at Pleasure Island and in other adult venues on this trip, this report has some information that may not be appropriate for young readers.

Sheril Niklewski - April 2003

  • Time of Year: Spring
  • Travel Method: Personal car
  • Resort: Offsite
  • Accommodations: Standard
  • Ages Represented in Group: Adult
  • WDW Experience Represented in Group: Veterans
  • Comments: For regular trip report writer, this four-day trip was a new way of experiencing Disney World. Unexptected foot problems have put her husband, Rich, into a wheelchair for the trip and quick lessons in experiencing Disney World with mobility issues are to be learned.
