Intros and such!

So I guess I have to start with the intros! so you guys know who we are and how awesome we are... right? kidding!

I'm Val, 24 from Toronto and I'm a Disney Addict! I'll be the one writing this TR!


The whole reason behind this trip was to get this guy right here...

addicted to Disney World! Thats Craig, aka the one i adore to a million pieces When I met him a year and a half ago he was a 22 year old Disney virgin! I, on the other hand, had just been accepted to the Disney College Program to work in one of the hotels and was just as happy as one could be!

Fast forward a few months and unfortunatly due to some family circumstances I was unable to accept the position at Disney. I was SO upset and I was so so so lucky to have Craig by my side. Seeing how upset I was he decided we were gunna take a trip to Disney!

We decided to go go to Disney World Aug 23-Aug 30 originally, but I was able to convince DBF to extend our vacation to Aug 22-Aug 31!

We stayed at PoP with FREE DINING! We got to all 4 Disney Parks, Typhoon Lagoon, DTD, SeaWorld and both Universal Parks!! It was Craigs very first everything trip, but this was also my first time staying on site and free dining! We were also celebrating our 1 year official anniversary!



So for months and months, with the help of all my PTR readers and fellow Dis peoples I planned and planned in an effort to get Craig addicted to Disney! So obviously, it worked! and in the end Craig even planned two surprises for me himself!

If anyone is interested in more about us, or the planning you can check out my PTR by clicking HERE!

o and P.S - not all my photos will be so fancy! I was just bored and thought Id snazz um up since intros are usually boring!


uP next... T'was the night before Disney!

If you live to be a 100, I hope to live to be 100 minus 1 day. So I never have to live without you.

I think the new Fantaysland is going to be AWESOME!What is going to be added is SO much more than what will be lost with the end of Toontown.Historically,Toontown was never intended to be a permanent part of Magic Kingdom.I wonder if this is a direct response to Universal's expansion plans.One thing that caught my attention was the "Castle walls" that Guests will walk throughn to enter the new area.They look amazing.This doubling of size is finally going to end the TERRIBLE "Fantasyland Bottleneck"!

Day 5 - Dinner at Raglan Roads



Raglan Roads was the meal that Craig himself picked out for us. Being the good ol english boy that he is he just LOVES pubs! So of course he wanted to check out Raglan Roads for some fried greasy yummyness and some ever so important BEER! I'm not a huge pub fan but after seeing the menu I agreed to try!

We started off with some drinks and some soda bread with some oil for dipping. Craig got a Guiness, which he said was very refreshing and quickly ordered some more.



I got a .. yup you guessed it! Malibu and Orange! Both were very good!



The bread and oil was pretty good. The oil was yummy but the bread was pretty dry.





While eating our bread and sippin on drinks we enjoyed some irish dancing followed by live music for the rest of our meal. They were both very entertaining and provided some nice background happenings.





For the main course Craig had the fish and chips.



He ate every last piece and gave it a 10/10. Coming from someone who pretty much HATES fish (except for fish and chips) This is a very high rating!

I ordered the Sheppards Pie.



It was just perfect! The mashed potatoes, the meat and the amazing gravy comined to give this dish a 10/10. If you go here, try this! You wont be disappointed.

For dessert Craig got the bread and butter pudding.



Another 10/10 for this one. I had never tried bread and butter pudding so I didnt want to order one but after trying this I really wished I had ordered it! It was delicious!

I ordered some sort of berry crumble.



It was ok. I didnt enjoy it that much, especially after tasting the amazing dessert Craig got. 5/10 for this one. I ended up just sharing Craigs dessert instead!

Bottom line is if you are planning a DTD night check this place out. Its a very nice lookin pub, the servers are great and the food is wonderful.

After the pub we wandered DTD some more and we had some more yummy drinks and then we caught a bus and headed back to POP to catch some zzz's.
