Our biggest trip yet!10 years and counting...:) My 1st PTR!

Well, I have been saying for literally MONTHS now, "I need to start our PTR!". Then, today I looked at our wall countdown calendar (we have a chalkboard wall in Chris' "gameroom" and i decided it need a touch of Disney so I drew a huge calendar and we draw a Mickey head over the numbers as we count down) and realized we were at 55 DAYS! That's right...55! EEEECK! Glad I noticed bc that meant we could start on our OTHER countdown board, one i made when we planned a more last minute trip about 3 years ago with 55 days left. This board had a note card with a Disney quote or fact everyday, and as the days pass, the cards come down! All that to say, this is long overdue!

Enough of all that, meet the cast of our trip!

Huge cast, right? hehe It's just the 2 of us...me (heidilou) and that handsome fella (cjjenkins).

Anyway, I will be making him help me with intro's and plans tomorrow, but I figured if I could at least get a start...FINALLY...then maybe we would sit down and start this thing!

Hope some of you will read and comment...like I said, this is my first....but I'll try to be entertaining. And if I am not, CJJ sure is!

First up is me, Heidi Lou.

I took a Mickey waffle around the world with me last trip and took a pic in every country with their hat on! I still have that waffle!

I just turned 28, and i have been to Disney World more times than I can remeber...starting from before i was even able to walk! It was pretty much always our go-to vacation when we need to get away or even if a hurricane was coming. My dad would say, "Gatlinburg or Disney World?" (although my dad did also plan some pretty spectacular other trips). We have always loved it and i still can never get enough! So, i saw other people use this approach to introduce themselves so i figured we'd try it out as well...QA section of Disney Favorites! (We have some similar answers)

Park: Epcot because I love walking arounf World Showcase
Ride: Tower of Terror...it was Mr. Toad's Wild Ride
Resort: Beach Club (although when i say that i feel like i am cheating in Polynesian since that is where my most vivid Disney childhood memories are)
Restaurant TS: Cape May Cafe
Restaurant QS: Harbor House
Non- Ride Activity: resort hopping..it is my dad's first night tradition and i always thought it was such a great one!
Character: Stitch or Mary Poppins
Movie: Sleeping Beauty, Beauty and the Beast, or Mary Poppins
Memory: probably anytime i have been there with my dad or chris (especially the first time chris and i went together bc it was his first time in like 15 years or so and watching his face was priceless!) or when we were there the day after a hurricane one time and MK was empty. We rode splash moutnain and right when we were about to drop the ride stopped and we got to get out and walk around the ride to exit!
Hooked: as long as i can remeber i have been hooked!

Next up is CJJ or Christopher james!

Chris is 30 years old and just graduated law school from Loyola in New Orleans! i am so proud!!! All he ever does is work and I love our trips bc he needs a break every now and again! He is a care- taker for people with disabilities and has the biggest heart. His passion in life is his car. haha Anyway, here are his answers!

Park: World Showcase at night
Ride: Splash Mountain
Resort: Beach Club
Restaurant TS: Cape May
Restaurant QS: Harbor House
Non-Ride Activity: Winter Summerland
Character: Alice, then Peter Pan
Movie: Alice, then Peter Pan
Song: Yo ho, Yo ho a Pirate's Life For Me
Memory: Seeing the MSEP (blah) from Splash Mountain at night...or being the last to get off the top of Space Mountain(it broke)
Hooked: When we went the first time in 2009 and stayed at Pop!

So that's us! In my next post i will explain a bit about the title of our PTR...
