Coming to Reverse Maleficent's Curse! A 16th Birthday to Disneyland PTR (NEW- 3/21)

The Prince shall indeed grow in strength and wisdom,
Beloved by all who know him.
But, before the sunsets on his sixteenth birthday,
He shall prick his finger on the spindle of a spinning wheel and die!
~
It's Incredible! Sixteen years and not a trace of him!
He couldn't have vanished into thin air!
Are you sure you searched everywhere?




It seems in some strange twist of fate, Maleficent is now searching for a 16 year old male, not a female. I think that takes the Beauty out of "Sleeping Beauty", I wonder what they will have to rename the move to now... Hmmm... Or maybe this is just a slight change of script for someone's own personal reasons... we may never know... (;

I'll just start discussing this trip I'm planning to go on to the Happiest Place on Earth while we try to uncover this mystery. Some introductions I think are in order:


Me on the PeopleMover, I will miss it dearly in DLR<3

My name's Timmy and I will be the resident PTR writer here. Like most people on here, I am a Disney Freak, though I'm not entirely sure, but I could be the worst. If there was an insane asylum for us, I would be in the Isolation Ward for the worst of us. I can turn any conversation into something about Disney. I can find any Disney reference within any sentence you may say. My friends can probably concur to this. I'm also very new to the world of Disney Geekdom. My first trip was just over a year ago, you can read about it here: When I First Felt the Magic... FINALLY! An April 2010 TR. And then I went again with Chorus and Band, you can read about that here: Cheerleaders! Blisters! Oversized Water Bottles! ...It Must Be Disney! A February 2011 TR. There also is a buddy PTR to this one since this trip originally wasn't supposed to be in Disneyland. You can read all about how this all changed around here: Even Miracles Take A Little Time... A Beyond Birthdays PTR. Besides Disney, my favorite TV show is Glee, my favorite song (as of now) is Candles by Hey Monday, my favorite non-Disney movie is (as of now) is The Blind Side, my favorite book is City of Glass by Cassandra Clare (I LOVE to read (and write!)) my favorite sport is swimming and my favorite hobby is writing. I think that sums me up! Here are some of my Disney favorites:

Favorite Disney Park: Magic Kingdom in Walt Disney World
Favorite Disney Character: Sebastian
Favorite Disney Movie: The Lion King/Princess & the Frog
Favorite Disney Hero: Quasimodo
Favorite Disney Heroine: Tiana/Belle
Favorite Disney Song: Almost There/Go The Distance
Favorite of the Big Five: Pluto
Favorite Disney Attraction: Expedition Everest (Sad it won't be in DLR)
Favorite Disney Villain: Maleficent


Now, for my Trip Companions...


Yeah, this is the only photo I have in my possession of Nate in Disney.

This is Nate. If I had to pick one best friend, my closest friend, it would be him. We are so much alike and share the same interests. He is my co-conspirator in the planning of this trip, he was really edging me on to do this. Also, this trip is a way for me to see him through the school year since he moved recently to Pennsylvania and I won't see him at all, so this was another way of meeting up with him to catch up. He enjoys Disney and is very good when it comes to planning, so he will help keep on task. Besides Disney, Nate loves computers and video games, his favorite TV show is Heroes, his favorite music is... well he seems to be really liking Maroon 5 at the moment, his favorite book (like me he LOVES to read) is The Hunger Games/Percy Jackson series and his favorite non-Disney movie... I'm actually not sure of this one, I'll have to ask. I would give you his Disney favorites, but I'll ask him those later, I may have mentioned them in my last TR since he was featured in it...

My next companion is...


On the Magical Express, will miss this dearly too :'(

This is Jocelyn. As I said before, Nate, out of all my friends would be my best friend, but if it was down to how long we've known each other, Jocelyn would take the cake. We've been friends since 1st Grade (maybe before?) and have been very close all those years. We've been in and out of friendships, but we still remain friends. She does enjoy Disney and out of us three teens going on this trip, she has been the most to a Disney park. I think she has been to Disney World... 5 or 4 times, I might have miscounted and is supposed to go again this year. She also is a bit harder to please, she isn't a very nostalgic person, but all for thrills, but I hope to change that in her by taking her to Disneyland, the Cheesegasmic Extravaganza, full of nostalgia! Besides Disney, she is obsessed with basketball, anything to do with basketball. Along with that, she is very sporty, her favorite TV show is Big Time Rush (Eck!), her favorite book (she enjoys reading too) is Twilight, her favorite singer is Lil Wayne and her favorite non-Disney move is 17 Again, I have a feeling. I'm a bit more sure of her Disney favorites, but I don't know them all, so I'll add them later. She is featured in my last TR too, so maybe I said some there :/

Last, but not least, the person who is helping me make this all happen and will be joining us for most of the shenanigans...


She is the one on the left, if you didn't know. Taken at Crystal Palace.

This is my mom. Probably one of very few people who really takes the most kindly to my new obsession with Disney. I think because she loves the place too, but agrees with my dad on the fact, there are more places than Disney. She has traveled a lot through work in her old job and has been to many, many places across the United States and the Islands of Central America. Out of the main players in this PTR, she is the only one to have gone to Disneyland. She doesn't remember it vividly as with taking a trip to WDW, but said she has been there or at least California. She basically finds the good in anything, which translates to rides, so simply put, she's an optomist. She also is pretty funny on the thrill rides, which will make for some pretty funny stories lemme tell ya. Outside of joining this adventure to DLR, my mom works as a Learning Specialist and Para Professional at a neighboring town's school, been doing Para work for... almost 5 or 4 years and Learning Specialist for 2 years. She loves to have fun and always takes risks because she knows she will regret not doing something everyone else does. Her favorite TV Show is the Real Housewives of Orange County (ironically where we are going), her favorite book (she has loved books her whole life) is... well, anything by Barbara Delinsky, her favorite song is Super Bass by Nicki Minaj and her favorite non-Disney movie is... I don't know this either, I will have to ask. And like everyone else I will post the Disney favorites later, but you can read about some of them in my first TR. (:

So, that is the main cast. We may have Nate's mom, my sisters and my dad join along, but they may go off on their own or Nate will fly on his own, we aren't sure. What we are sure of is the trip, as of now, will be from April 22nd to April 26th. No hotels chosen or booked, nothing is booked actually, but April vacation is what we are looking at. I will talk about the plans I've formed in my head for the 5 days later. For now...

Have A Magical Day!
