Wild Africa Trek, a Disney Wedding, AoA photoshoot, and more!Aug 2013 TR update 12/21
 
I'm very excited to finally be posting my trip report from my August 2013 trip! I went for a few days with my husband to go to a wedding. It was a jammed packed 5 days, but we got to do some truly incredible things. Here's just a sample of what you can expect:

-One of the best character meet and greets you'll ever hear about!
-a bachelorette party in Magic Kingdom, Splitsville, and Universal CityWalk
-Wild Africa trek
-Anniversary photo shoot at the Art of Animation resort
-an amazing dinner at Jiko
-a gorgeous Disney wedding that was a complete blast!
-a private Illuminations dessert party
-a fun lunch at Epcot with friends before heading home

Sound like a good time? It was wonderful! I hope you'll be following along with me!

About Us
http://i1288.photobucket.com/albums/...ps0b67781b.jpg

This is me and DH! We've been married for 2 years, and we had our honeymoon in Disney World. I'm much more of the Disney fanatic, but he enjoys it too. I am currently working as an SAT tutor, and I just got my masters in library science so I'm looking for a job in that field. In my free time I also do theater, I write, and I have my own Disney blog (www.disneyinyourday.com) DH is a software engineer who loves video games and is in the process of creating his own video game.

The Accommodations

For this trip we were staying in Animal Kingdom Lodge, thanks to a family member's DVC! We had a studio in Jambo House with a savanna view.


We were so excited to leave for this trip! Unfortunately, our first day of traveling was probably the worst travel experience I've ever had in my life...

joining! Sounds like a great experience ... well, after the travel issues as well. Sorry to hear of your issues - but at least it meant the only direction your trip could go once you got there was up! :thumbsup2

Yes, I am in love with AKL! Jiko was incredible, and I loved Boma dinner too. Haven't had the chance to try Sanaa yet, even though we had a reservation for our first night there...
