The links below will lead to pages detailing what we did each day of our trip. While we planned to write much of this trip report while we were actually at Walt Disney World (like we did last time), the laptop didn't go along with that plan. Instead, we'll be writing each day's report over the next couple of weeks. Check back daily for a new update!
