The Disneymoon of My Dreams! **UPDATED 8/30/08!**

Hello all and welcome to my first ever trip report! Thank you for stopping by and I hope you will enjoy my efforts at entertaining you. I will gladly take credit for any chuckles and giggles, but blame all cringes and groans due to failed humor attempts on your poor sensibilities!

This trip report chronicles the life and times of one crazy woman and one tolerant man who decided to spend their honeymoon in Disney World, the place of aforementioned crazy woman’s dream honeymoon since the age of 5. Additionally, they had the bright idea to venture on this trip in the middle of August. Needless to say, many adventures ensued

A little bit about the cast:

Me (Belle, because he’s a Beast!): 30 year old attorney who has loved Disney since her first trip at the age of 4. It’s hard to believe I’m old enough to have a job and have to pay bills because most of the time, I still feel like the child that first visited with her family way back when. I can be stubborn and dictatorial, but I also like to think that my enthusiasm can be charming and contagious. Well, one can hope, right?

Tigger: 29 year old medical resident who thought I was joking the first time I said I wanted to go to Disney World for our honeymoon. He wanted to go to Hawaii or St. Lucia…I told him there are nice pools at the Disney resorts. Once on board the Disney train, though, he was a total sweetie about it and very tolerant of my Disboards obsession. He loves good food and wine, hates the heat, and can also be very stubborn at times. When he’s not too busy trying to seem like he knows what he’s doing, however, he is a total child at heart who does silly dances if he thinks nobody is looking.

This is us at our rehearsal dinner:


So the wheels of planning started moving last December. I already knew the basics:
Who: Belle and Tigger
What: Disneymoon!
Where: Disney’s Grand Floridian (also part of the dream from when I was 5)
When: Sunday, August 12 – Monday, August 20, 2007
Why: If you’re reading this, you know why

Before Tigger even knew it, we had reservations for a Magic Kingdom room view at the Grand Floridian for 7 days/8 nights with the Disney Dining Package and Parkhopper Passes. Woohoo, we were going to do it up right! But first, we had a wedding to plan and get through. Up next, do we make it through the wedding and get to the airport on time? You’ll have to keep reading to find out, but here’s a teaser photo (What’s going on? Where are we? This isn't the Grand Floridian!)

Thanks! Although we haven't gotten to the pictures yet of us sweating our butts off in the parks - we're not very cute then at all! In fact, I was just looking at the photos yesterday and wondering what happened to us that we got so ugly! I'm blaming the heat and sweat for our puffy, shiny faces in all the upcoming pictures

And it really was a fantastic week! We went on almost everything *and* even got to fit in a Pirates and Princess Party which was the most amazing and unforgettable night ever!!! For anyone trying to plan a trip who's wavering on whether to splurge for one of these ticketed events, I have to say 100% go for it!

Thanks for reading and check back in!

Yay! Readers! I'll be putting up the travel day segment either tonight or tomorrow and I have already uploaded 100 photos for this trip report (out of the 900+ photos I took!).

Thanks for reading!

Disneymooner, myself, my Mom and my 2 DD's were at the Poly Aug. 15 - 22 (actually my Mom had to leave the 20th) but I am waiting to see if we are in any of your pictures. I know I saw you guys because I thought to myself what an adorable couple and I did wonder if you guys were on your honeymoon. I don't think you two are in any of our pictures but I will double check. I am so glad you had fun. Wasn't the Poly great!!!

Hope you got your computer fixed, or maybe bought a new one, looking forward to the rest of your TR.

I am working on the next installment right now! I just need to get a couple pictures off the other computer and I'll be ready to post later today, I promise!

Hope there's still at least one person out there who's interested!
