UPDATE 1/20!! Bickering, Barfing, and Bug Bites
 
Welcome everyone!

We just returned from our WDW vacation and I don't want to wait too long to start my TR because I'll start to forget details!

I'll post chapter links in the 2nd post for anyone who wants to skip the chit-chat in between!

Here is a link to my PTR, in case you missed it and want to go back and read it:
http://www.disboards.com/showthread....1#post36754966

For those that haven't read it, here are the basics:

Main Characters:
Me, Ali. 27 years old - from CT.
I figured out two very important things on this trip:

1) When things aren't going exactly my way, I tend to get grumpy. I never really noticed this about myself before and I think it's actually a recent development. You'll see this happen at least once during our trip. I'm not talking an out and out tantrum, but just general grumpiness, I guess is the best way to describe it.

2) I should really stop making ADRs for breakfast. You'll find out why later on.

My DBF of 7 years (this Tuesday) is Lumar, age 26.
He figured out only one very important thing on this trip...the toilet paper holders in the hotel room will NOT support your body weight. More on that later! ;) He may (or may not) pop in from time to time to chip in his 2 cents.

Supporting Cast:
Heather (HeatherBelle) and her DH, Brad
Dana (DisneyFirefly)

When:
Tuesday October 19 - Friday October 29, 2010

Where:
Disney's Coronado Springs

As I'm sure you can tell from the title, this was an interesting trip! We had a GREAT time, overall, and got lots of pixie dust but we hit a few speed bumps along the way. Just because you're in WDW, doesn't mean that "real life" ceases to exist. Just to keep us humble, there were some minor reality checks thrown in with our magical moments!

I'll post the first installment after I get some sleep!

We're in Naugatuck but I'm originally from Stratford and Lumar is originally from Bridgeport.


I'm trying really hard to work on my first chapter but I can't get any of the pics taken with Lumar's camera to upload! It's my computer, not the camera but it keeps freezing and it won't save any of the pics. I'm about to put his memory card in my camera since I had no trouble uploading my own pics. Ah...machines! :rolleyes:

My first chapter didn't have many pics, so it was easy to upload. This second chapter has a ton (10am-3am, so... yeah :lmao:), so Photobucket froze :headache: I hope your computer stops freezing! :goodvibes

HeatherBelle614 10-31-2010 01:03 PM

Hellllooooo!!! We had a great time with you guys!

Brad has already decided you two need to start saving now so you can go on my "after law school Disney cruise" trip with us!! You've got 4 years to get ready! :goodvibes

(Hopefully, we'll see you some time sooner than that, though! :lovestruc)

Annnd, I'll save the rest of my comments until you update; I don't want to give anything away!

We went to dinner on arrival night and then to MNSSHP so I definitely have pics! The problem is that most of the food pics were taken with my cell phone and I'm having a hard time getting them to transfer to my computer. Again, it's my computer...it's old and it has a lot of stuff on it so it just doesn't work like it used to.

We had a lot of fun, too! I would LOVE to do a Disney Cruise! The ones to the Caribbean are horribly expensive I don't think....we'll start saving as soon as we buy one of those amazing Disney mattresses! :cloud9:

OMG Kathy, I took a bunch of pics of CSR! As I post them, feel free to steal them for the CSR thread! Seriously, if they made a section at CSR that was DVC rooms, we would buy into it! I love it there! :lovestruc

Thank you, Ali. I am so happy to know that you loved CSR. :thumbsup2 And I may just take you up on that offer of stealing your pics. :)
