Talking September '09 PTR ~ A trip full of WONDERful firsts! UPDATED 10/12 TR STARTED!

Hi guys! This is my first PTR ever so please, be patient with me!

A little background info on the cast of characters:

Me - Jen, 26, born & raised in NJ. I've been a travel consultant for almost a year (May 5will be 1 year!) and a retired waitress. I love all things Disney. This will be my fourth full trip to the World since 2006. I took a trip to MK as a shore excursion on a 2005 NCL cruise so since then, I've been hooked. Previously, I hadn't been there since I was about 7 or 8 years old, when my parents took me. Back then, MGM was practically brand new...and still called MGM!

DBf - Joe, 27, also from NJ. He's a waiter for Chili's right now but more importantly an aspiring movie director. He just wrapped up his first feature length film and is in the process of editing it! I made a cameo We've been together for almost 4 years (April 24th!) and he probably loves Disney more than I do. He's taken trips with his family every summer since he was a kid and he's always been my companion for Disney World. I have no idea what number trip this will be for him!

Here's a picture of us:


The plan for this trip is:
9/20-9/24 staying at POR
9/24-9/27 set sail on the Wonder!
9/27-9/29 two extra nights of magic at ASMo

These are all firsts for us! We've never stayed at POR (I've never stayed at a Mod!) or ASMo. We're POP people. Neither one of us have ever sailed with DCL. Other cruise lines yes, but not Disney! We're doing it in style this time!

Expect more updates as the time gets closer. Less than 6 months to go!!

Hey Jenny! I'm so glad that you decided to do a pre-trip report. Nice PTR intro! That's such a cute picture of you guys. Love those Medieval Times crowns.


That's cool that Joe wants to be a movie director. Tell him I said congrats on making is first feature-length film. That's a great accomplishment. Please keep us updated about that.


Can't wait to read more!

Thanks for stopping by!

Medieval Times is so much fun! We went there for Joe's birthday this past January. It was a blast.

I will definitely keep you updated on his movie. He usually posts trailers online so I'll send you a link if you'd like.

Yay! You found me! I saw your post about the Tusker House, glad to know you liked it. I picked it because Donald's my favorite and it's one of the very few places to see Daisy!!

Another shopping trip!

So my sister worked for Ann Taylor for a little while as a manager and I completely fell in love with their clothes. She gets an awesome discount but she's leaving their company for another so it was the last weekend I could abuse her discount. Here's the loot!








I can't tell you how much I love this dress.






This skirt but in light blue denim rather than white.

I also got a pair of distressed dark blue denim bermudas that I can't seem to find on the site.

I saved a boatload of money with my sister's discount and then also an extra 15% because my sister had me apply for the Ann Taylor credit card. I need a credit card like I need another hole in the head but the limit is low and it'll be good to have. I do love their clothes.

In other Disney news, I want to buy MNSSHP tickets but they're not online yet. What's up with that?

Hi Again!

Love your PTR!

I definitely need a pre-Disney shopping trip. You have inspired me! Kohl's here I come!

What's your favorite thing to get at Pecos Bill's? We have never been there, we usually do Cosmic Ray's, but I would love to try it this trip.

Hi! Thanks!

Kohl's has a whole bunch of Disney shirts. And they are almost always on sale! I got those two I posted in my PTR and when I went back to weeks later, they had 3 more I wanted!

I usually get a burger or the taco salad at Pecos Bill's. They have a toppings bar so they give you everything plain and you can put what you want on it. My DBf usually gets the chicken wrap and it's the size of my arm!! It's also a good place to catch the parades from Frontierland. There is an outdoor seating area in the back. I've never been to Cosmic Ray's so we may stop there this trip!
