The Pumpkins Dine Around Disney 2014 Trip Report Index


The Cast!


There's me, Mrs Pumpkin on the Dibb aka Michelle in real life, aged 37, and now addicted to planning holidays to Orlando! I'm the photographer, trip report writer and driver on our holidays to Orlando! I was supposed to lose weight for this holiday. I didn't. It affected how much we did. And for this trip I was a size 30/32.

There's him, Steven19720 on the Dibb and Steve in real life, aged 41. But he now refers to himself in our trip planner on the Dibb as Seor Pumpkin He's 41, chief keeper of documents, navigator, packhorse and videographer. His mission on holidays is usually to eat all the food! He loves his grub, and quite frankly, I don't know where he puts it all!

There's the boy, my son and Steve's stepson, Liam, 15. Despite his increasing age and my fear about it all being too babyish for him, he loves going to Orlando and can't wait to be back! He really gets involved with meeting characters and because of that, we always end up having a right laugh with the characters we meet. He eats a LOT, again, not sure where he puts it, and we're going to be making the most of the dining plan on our 2014 trip with him!

**************************************************

If you've read my previous trip reports (WDW Aug 2013, WDW Aug 2011 & DLP Aug 2010), you'll know that my reports are photo heavy - as many as a post will allow! I will be including more photographs on the reports that I post on my blog and you'll find all of my photo albums from this trip on my Flickr.
I took this year's photographs predominantly on my Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ200, as well as a few on my iPhone5 (all of those are on my Instagram (@MsPurplePumpkin)). Waterpark photos were on my new Panasonic Lumix DMC-FT5.
Hubs did videography this year on a Panasonic V720. I'll be uploading videos to my YouTube channel.
Any photo editing is done with Paint Shop Pro X3, Photoshop CS5 or Camera+.

**************************************************

It's gonna take me a while to go through photos (I took 8000 ) delete the rubbish ones, edit the good ones, put them into collages, gather my thoughts, write the report and publish them, but I will work through as quickly as time allows me!

Hi Michelle
I loved your last trip report, it had me hooked, I can't believe that I missed that you were off again this year, how did that happen?
Your photos are fantastic, last time I had to bookmark them so when hubby and sons came home I could show them, very creative.
Can't wait to read along.
