Winter (January - March) 2003 WDW Trip Reports


Suzanne Reardon-Mulhall - February 2003

  • Time of Year: Winter
  • Travel Method: Personal car
  • Resort: ASMuR
  • Accommodations: Standard
  • Ages Represented in Group: Preschool, Elementary, Adult
  • WDW Experience Represented in Group: Frequent
  • Comments: Escaping the Maryland winter is more than enough reason to head to Disneyland for a week. Having a friend to hang out with is also more than enough. Both is a great trip.

Margie McCann - March 2003

  • Time of Year: Winter
  • Travel Method: Personal car
  • Resort: CBR
  • Accommodations: Standard
  • Ages Represented in Group: Preschool, Adult
  • WDW Experience Represented in Group: Frequent
  • Comments: This was an important trip for Margie. Wither her third trip in two years, she has officially bumped herself up into the "frequent visitor" category. This was a trip planned simply because a year seemed too long to be away from Disney World. So, with the permission of her daughter's prinicpal, they were off.

Anthony Mathenia - February 2003

  • Time of Year: Winter
  • Travel Method: Personal car
  • Resort: ASMR
  • Accommodations: Standard
  • Ages Represented in Group: Elementary, Adult
  • WDW Experience Represented in Group: Rookie
  • Comments: This will be a rare opportunity for trip report readers, the opportunity to relive the first visit of a bunch of rookies! Anthony visited several times as a kid, but this his first adult visit, and the first visit of any kind for his wife, Rebekah, and young daughter Mina. Enjoy.

Janice O'Hanley - March 2003

  • Time of Year: Winter
  • Travel Method: Plane, Shuttle
  • Resort: BWR
  • Accommodations: Standard, Concierge
  • Ages Represented in Group: Adult
  • WDW Experience Represented in Group: Infrequent, Veteran
  • Comments: Janice found that one of the unexpected perks of working at the Disney Store was a annual trip to WDW with fellow store employees. What an opportunity to visit the park with other that love Disney World as much as her.

Mark Goldhaber - February 2003

  • Time of Year: Winter
  • Travel Method: Plane, Rental Car
  • Resort: OKWR
  • Accommodations: 2BR, 1BR
  • Ages Represented in Group: Pre-School, Adult, Senior
  • WDW Experience Represented in Group: Infrequent, Veteran
  • Comments: When Mark submitted this trip report, he called it epic. Little does he know some of the truly epic tomes we've read for the trip report archive. Well, at least Mark will have something to shoot for after his next trip in October. From this trip, Mark lists one of the "magical" items as "All the special one-on-one time that Joshua [his son]." And really, that about sums up everything.

Robin Black - March 2003

  • Time of Year: Winter
  • Travel Method: Plane, Shuttle
  • Resort: CR
  • Accommodations: Standard
  • Ages Represented in Group: Toddler, Pre-School, Adult
  • WDW Experience Represented in Group: Rookies, Infrequent
  • Comments: Robin and her family are regular Disneyland visitors, but have been trying to get back to Walt Disney World since their honeymoon. Finally the cards played out correctly and they found themselves on a 10-day trip.

Lisa Cubbon - March 2003

  • Time of Year: Winter
  • Travel Method: Personal Car
  • Resort: BWR
  • Accommodations: Standard
  • Ages Represented in Group: Adult
  • WDW Experience Represented in Group: Veteran
  • Comments: Despite plenty of rain and good-sized crowds, this was a very good trip for Lisa and Andy. But then, are they ever bad?

Nikki Chatelain - March 2003

  • Time of Year: Winter
  • Travel Method: Plane, Shuttle
  • Resort: PORFQ
  • Accommodations: Standard
  • Ages Represented in Group: Adult
  • WDW Experience Represented in Group: Rookie, Veteran
  • Comments: Nina and her mother make an annual trip to Disney World for Mardi Gras. To escape it, that is; they live in New Orleans, and it is a good time to get away. A chance to see their Altanta Braves in Spring Training is a bonus treat.

Sue Holland - March 2003

  • Time of Year: Winter
  • Travel Method: Personal Car
  • Resort: Offsite, BCR
  • Accommodations: Standard
  • Ages Represented in Group: Adult
  • WDW Experience Represented in Group: Veteran
  • Comments: A gathering of Internet friends gave Sue an unplanned reason to visit the resort for a short trip. 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.

Amy Vanderboogert - February 2003

  • Time of Year: Winter
  • Travel Method: Personal Car
  • Resort: N/A
  • Accommodations: N/A
  • Ages Represented in Group: Adult
  • WDW Experience Represented in Group: Veteran
  • Comments: Free Disney World passes won from a radio station provide Amy with the perfect excuse for a quick Disney fix.

Sheri Niklewski - February 2003

  • Time of Year: Winter
  • Travel Method: Personal Car
  • Resort: ASMoR
  • Accommodations: Standard Room
  • Ages Represented in Group: Adult
  • WDW Experience Represented in Group: Veteran
  • Comments: Getting a dose of the Disney magic isn't always easy. A house in Nebraska, an engagement in Ohio, and a racquetball tournament all conspire to keep this Georgia couple from Disney World. But like any good story, all challenges are overcome in the end.

Sue Holland - February 2003

  • Time of Year: Winter
  • Travel Method: Personal Car
  • Resort: Offsite
  • Accommodations: Standard Room; Deck 2
  • Ages Represented in Group: Adult
  • WDW Experience Represented in Group: Veteran, DVC Member
  • Disney Cruise Experience Represented in Group: Veteran
  • Comments: Sue wasn't sure that she'd enjoy just a 4-day cruise, but the company of many friends on a DVC only cruise more than made up for the briefness of trip. 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.

Steve Russo January 2003

  • Time of Year: Winter
  • Travel Method: Plane, Shuttle Service
  • Resort: OKWR
  • Accommodations: 1 Bedroom Villa
  • Ages Represented in Group: Teen, Adult
  • WDW Experience Represented in Group: Veteran, DVC Member
  • Comments: One of the lesser known attractions in the Disney World area are the . . . "fine" . . . medical services near property. Though Steve didn't plan that portion of the trip, he, Barb, and Steve had a great time as detailed in this extensive report.

Michael Barker -- January 2003 -- Walt Disney World (VWL)

  • Time of Year: Winter
  • Travel Method: Personal Car
  • Resort: VWL
  • Accommodations: 1 Bedroom Vacation Home
  • Ages Represented in Group: Toddler, Adult
  • WDW Experience Represented in Group: Veteran, DVC Member
  • Comments: Michael and Christy wanted to reward their son for his patience in being a new "older brother." Four days at Disney World proved to be just the ticket and now they've surely got a new "Park Person" on their hands.
