Our First Trip



Hotel: Contemporary Garden View

Who: Linda, RJ, Meghan, Courtney, Alan

Transportation: Drove


We took our first trip as a family in November of 1997.

We rented a van and drove to Disney World from La Porte, Texas. Nedless to say it was a long trip. Our crew was comprised of my son (age 9), daughter (age 8), daughter (age 5), wife (age ?) and me husband (age 37).

We stayed in the Garden rooms of the Contemporary. At the time the wife was a castmember so our tickets were free. We spent a day at the Magic Kingdom(2days here), Epcot and MGM. At that time Animal Kingdom was not built yet.

We found that just four days was not enough. Not just in the parks but we needed time to rest. We needed a day to just shop and relax.

We left Wednesday after noon and drove all night to get back to La Porte for Thanksgiving.
