Can you tell I'm excited?!?!?!?! Pre-TR (October 1-15th 2009) The trip has begun!
 
(Cross Posted to UK TR Board)

Hey guys!

Well, I tried and tried to leave it until later to start my PTR but I jsut couldn't wait anymore!!!!

I'm Victoria (23, from London, UK) and my fiance and I are off to WDW this October! :hyper:

Here is a photo of us from our Januray trip to Disneyland Paris.

During the trip Jack proposed to me in the castle, while we were the only two people in the park!! :lovestruc :lovestruc

Needless to say we have convinced my parents that a WDW wedding is the wedding for us. So this trip is our first planning trip! :bride:

I haven't been to WDW since 1993 when I was 7, and Jack has never been, so really it'll be a completely new experience for both of us!! And I'm going to make sure to get him a 'first trip' pin! :thumbsup2

I booked a couple of weeks ago, after spending weeks trying to decide between CSR and POFQ, in the end FQ won and now I am 100% happy wth my decision and really feel like I've made the right choice as we want to relax as well while we're away and it looks so peaceful and romantic.

I can't to start planning properly, and would love some advice from all you WDW experts!

Speak soon, Torsie xxxx

Yay for a PTR!! You will love POFQ! It is such a nice romantic hotel with lots of little paths and quiet spots to relax! You must have the beignets in the food court for breakfast! They are to die for!:goodvibes

Hi Victoria, i remember you from the DLParis section from when i was posting a bit over there before my first visit there late last year :)

Congratulations on the engagement, sounds like a lovely, romantic proposal :lovestruc and yay on booking your first trip together to WDW, im sure you will have so much fun planning. Look forward to reading more of your plans.

So, I gave in to Deluxe Resort temptation today and upgraded to AKL!! Eeeeeee!!!

I'm going to keep it a secret from Jack and see how far I can get without him realising we aren't going to POFQ. I think ME will be where I'll have to tell him....

torsie24 04-08-2009 02:44 PM

Well I cracked and told Jack about AKL! I kind of regret not having a big surprise for him, but it's made me more excited really. He started off by sighing and rolling his eyes. Then got a little mad about the extra spent. But in about 10 minutes he was asking to see photos which he LOVED! (Thank you Jambo Wildbunch!) And he is very excited to stay there now! :banana:

I am soooo desperate for July and the park hours to come out, but I can't help but plan, plan and plan some more!! I just cannot wait to do it for real, but here are my ideas so far!

Thu Oct 1st: We will hopefully arrive late afternoon, so will just check in, explore AKL a bit, and get dinner at Mara before crashing in our Disney beds and getting our first glimpse of the infamous Stacey! I'd like to say we might have time for a swim, but I doubt it...

Fri 2nd
AM: We will be awake at about 5am due to the time difference if every other US trip I've been on is anything to go by. So we plan on taking advantage of our crazy bodyclocks for the first few days. I can't visit any park other than MK first, so hopefully we'll be there for the opening ceremony. If it's EMH I'm pretty sure we'll even be able to make it in plenty of time for 8am! I hope to go on Splash Mountain, BTMRR, Mickey's Philarmagic, IASW and Jungle Cruise before the lines get too long.

PM: We'll stay at MK until we are too hot/tired/fancy a break, which I'm not expecting to be much longer than a few hours due to all of the travelling yesterday, but I will make sure I get a dole whip before we head off!! We'll need to get some supplies for breakfasts and snacks to keep in the room, so will head to the Hess at DTD for these, and also maybe get EoS for lunch/dinner and there is no way I'm not getting some treats from Goofy!! We won't be staying up late for the first few nights. So will laze around the resort for the evening. More Stacey? :happytv:

Sat 3rd
AM:AKL Rope drop today! EE, Kali and Kilamanjaro Safaris are my main aims, but I would also love to go to the petting zoo and Jack wants to go on Dinosaur (although I'll be like this :scared1: on it!)

PM:Once we're pooped we'll just head back to AKL so chillax a bit. If we do feel we have a bit of stamina by later in the evening I'd love to catch Spectro and Wishes!!

Sun 4th
AM:DHS Rope drop today! I'm sure you can guess where we'll be heading first!! TSM! Jack is also very excited for the Great Movie Ride, and we both really want to go to the Walt Disney Exhibit! We love/hate Tower of Terror at Disneyland Paris and so will ride it today I'm sure, but will both be peeing our pants in the line!!

PM: I'm tempted to make Dinner reservations for WCC for about 4 or 5 for today, and then we can ahve a good nosey around WL and get the boat to the CR also. (It is our plan this trip to visit every Deluxe resort so we are well informed for our wedding/disneymoon choices!)

Mon 5th
AM:Epcot Rope Drop! And straight to Soarin for both of us!! I also want to ride test track and then be re-united with my beloved figment, who I have missed since I met him in 1993 and LOVED! Jack is excited to Ride Ellens Energy Adventure, and I want to ride SE and also the Land...Ooooh and Nemo of course!! Yay! I'm thinking maybe back to AKL for a bit of chilling after Futureworld....

PM:Once we've recharged our batteries, it's World Showcase time! I'm tempted to do this via BC/YC and enter through IG so we have ticked off some more Deluxe hotel visits! I am soooo excited to pick a pearl, and Jack wants to ride Maelstrom! The whole of WS looks just awesome to me, so we will explore and then get a good spot for Illuminations, with a School Bread!!!

Tue 6th
AM:I have talked with our wedding photographers and this is likely the day that Jack and I will be meeting them for our Engagement Photo session. We want to take photos at the Poly and they suggested the BW as another great place for photos.

PM: I don't really have any plans for this afternoon, as the photos could be ongoing, or moved to later on. Maybe a water park, just relaxing by the pool, or DTD for T-Rex dinner. Who knows? It may even be a fantasmic night which is one of my 'must do's for the trip.

Wed 7th/Thu 8th

I have both of these days earmarked for US/IOA. Jack looooves Comics so he will be really excited there I'm sure! I'm also excited for Rip, Ride Rock it and Jurassic Park, as I love the JP ride in Hollywood!

After this my plans become a little hazy...I think we may do MNSSHP on Friday 9th, before the Columbus Day Weekend crowds hit too bad. CD is the reason I want to get lots done during our first week so that we can take it easier and relax more during the busier second week.

I'm pretty sure most I've bored you all to tears by now, but if anyone is still reading, Thank You!!

:rotfl::rotfl2: I just came on here to start my PTR, and I'm arriving the day after you've left, so I don't think yours will be the earliest trip report ever!

I went in 2005 with a couple of friends and fell in love with it so much, sadly almost 4 years later i still havent gone back. mainly because im having trouble convincing my DBF he will love it hopefully next year or the year after i'll be going back though :)
