A Frump's TR: "Me Gusta Epic Mealtime! Stop Thinking My Thoughts: I'm Five." DR LINK!

What Up, Frump Fans?


Hey everybody!! Welcome to my third trip report! My first trip report was "SUCK IT UP BUTTERCUP! It Builds Character and Strength!" A July 2011 TR!, followed by "I Don't Wanna Meet Mickey In a Frumpin' Poncho!" An August 2011 TR!. My current TR, which I am writing with Jess (PrincessJess508) is The Frumps Have Hit the Wall... And No One's Mad. "FART SHOES.", which is from our trip this past May.

Whether you are new to my trip reports or have been with me since the beginning, this trip report is going to be like no other before! So sit back, relax, and pull up your own dang chair, as this Frump proudly presents:


A Frump's TR: "Me Gusta Epic Mealtime! Stop Thinking My Thoughts: I'm Five."


Before I let you Be My Guest, however, you probably want to know who the heck we are, right?

Here we go!

First up, me! (*Hint- I'm the one without the overalls)



Hi there! I'm Kristen, I'm 17 years old, and I'll be your narrator for the next two weeks on our Safari! (Just kidding, this is a trip report, and you can bet that's it's going to take WAY longer than that for me to write!) I have been going to Disney World since I was six (and also two trips to Disneyland), and could not be more in love with the place. I love everything from the grandiose fireworks displays to the little details and Hidden Mickeys. I am particularly obsessed with Disney food, the Muppets, and the Monorail! I hope to do the Disney College Program in the Spring of 2015, so look out for Cast Member Kristen! I fall more in love with Disney by the day, and truly consider it to be like my second home. I love DISboards and sharing my trips with all of you, as well! You are all the reason that I am writing this now! So, without further ado, here are some of my Disney favorites!

Park: Disney's Hollywood Studios
Attraction: Haunted Mansion, Jungle Cruise, Toy Story Mania and Tower of Terror
Show: The Magic, the Memories and You and Illuminations: Reflections of Earth
Table-Service Restaurant: Hoop-De-Doo, 'Ohana and California Grill
Counter-Service Restaurant: Pizzafari and Flame Tree BBQ
Movie: Hercules, Tangled, Aladdin, Mary Poppins and Princess and the Frog
Character: Ariel, Lottie, Hades, Megara, Rex, Mary Poppins, Aladdin, Flynn Rider and Chip & Dale

Next up, Allie!



Allie is one of my best friends on this earth, is also 17, and is a HUGE Disney freak too! She actually invited me on this trip! You see, she is an only child, and every year her parents let her pick a friend to take to Disney with her, and she chose me! I am eternally grateful to all of them, and I have them to thank for some of the best memories of my life, which is truly priceless. I love Allie because she has an awesome sense of humor and is quite brilliant. We have very similar values and beliefs, and sometimes we even share thoughts! She is like my twin, I swear. She makes me laugh until I cry, and we always have so much fun together. Oh, and my nickname for her is Chippy, because she reminds me of a chipmunk sometimes. So, if I ever refer to her as that in this TR, don't be alarmed. She has been going to Disney World since she was really little, and she shares my love of the place. Here are some of Allie's Disney favorites!

Park: EPCOT
Attraction: The Gran Fiesta Tour, Tower of Terror, and Space Mountain
Show: Illuminations: Reflections of Earth and Wishes!
Table-Service Restaurant: Teppan Edo, Yak and Yeti, and Le Cellier
Counter-Service Restaurant: Sunshine Seasons
Movie: Mulan, Hercules, Finding Nemo, and Aladdin
Character: Mulan, Panchito, Chip & Dale, Belle, and Ariel

Sharon!



Sharon is Allie's mom, and is one of the sweetest people I have ever met. She is a genius. She is so genuine and kind and I just love being around her! She was our photographer extraordinaire on this trip, and she was also our coordinator. She is a big fan of the plan, and I just love that about her! She even hung our itinerary on the fridge in our villa! Such an angel. She has been going to Disney for years and years, and in addition to their trip with Allie, she and Allie's dad take a trip down for Food & Wine each fall. She loves Disney and making memories with Allie. I was so happy to be a part of it! Here are some of Sharon's Disney favorites!

Park: Magic Kingdom
Attraction: Mickey's Philharmagic
Show: Wishes!
Table-Service Restaurant: 'Ohana
Counter-Service Restaurant: Columbia Harbour House
Movie: The Rescuers
Character: Bianca, Bernard, and the Fairy Godmother

Last, but not least, Timmy!



Timmy is Allie's dad, and is one of the greatest people I know. His subtle humor is the BEST, especially when it comes out of nowhere, much like the picture above. He and Allie's mom work really hard all year and really enjoy their vacation time in Disney. He is also very genuine and honest, and very smart. (It runs in the family.) He likes to sample all the food and adult beverages in Disney and relax by the pool. He and Sharon are the reason I was able to go on this trip, so I am so thankful to them for that! Here are some of Timmy's Disney favorites!

Park: EPCOT
Attraction: Tower of Terror
Show: Illuminations: Reflections of Earth
Table-Service Restaurant: California Grill
Counter-Service Restaurant: Columbia Harbour House
Movie: Bedknobs and Broomsticks
Character: Timon

When I refer to Allie's parents TOGETHER, I will most likely call them "The Units." They're so precious:


Along the way, you will see Allie's and my Chip & Dale obsession a LOT:


You will also see many Frumpy pictures, which will all include hilarious explanations, of course.



Yeah...we'll get there.

You'll also see and hear about a couple of DIS meets, tour group mayhem, flirty cast members, and some new friends!

And now, my Famous Five W's of Disney!

Who? Honestly, don't you all READ?
What? An 8-night, 9-day trip to Walt Disney World with all of our Annual Passes and the Tables in Wonderland card! (We flew, by the way.)
When? July 14th-22nd, 2012
Where? Disney's Boardwalk Villas (aka my new favorite resort) in a 1-bedroom villa! (Allie's parents have been DVC members since the 90's!)
Why? Because Allie's family invited me! And they are the BEST!



It was a fun, crazy, and HILARIOUS trip full of laughs, smiles, and unfortunately taxes. (Hehe...I couldn't resist.) I can't wait to share it with you, so stay tuned for the food, the fun and the Frump!

Count me in, my fellow frump! Besides, I've never read any of Allie's TR's before (although I do know that one of her TR's gave you the classic one-liner, "Suck it up, buttercup! It builds character and strength!"), so it'll be fun to see what frumpiness she brings to the trip! Can't wait for the first chapter, Kristen! Frumps forever!

Yes it did! You did your homework! She definitely will bring a lot of it! The first chapter will probably not be posted until after my trip.

YAY! It's started. I love how you painted your nails with the dancing people Kristen! Need that pin so bad now Those Spectrospecs are awesome! I want some! Track some wrackspurts ya know. Will have to see if they have those at WWoHP when I go... someday.

Big to the No Sleeping! It never fails to preserve energy for Disney sometime or preserve Disney time that is That's awesome how you were able to shoot a whole getting ready video! Need to watch more of Jenna Marbles' videos to see what that is about. I've only seen the one about the Disney princesses lol

Nice foreshadowing there, now I understand why my parents yelled at me when I didn't weigh my luggage the night before I left for Disney. All makes sense now! lol jk Can't believe the lady on the plane. Someone seems to be missing a whole lot of magic in their life. But yeah, more for us!

Can't wait to read more!

Hi Kristen, where to begin.

I think this is your first update since I officially joined the DIS (and WOW did you ever update), even though I've been reading your's and many other TR's over the years.
You even played a role in me actually writing one myself.
Thank you for all the Frump reports up to now (and what the hell, the many yet to come in the future).

As for the current updates, that photo at ToT ... I love Disney CM's

So many good updates! Love it! Thanks for keeping me entertained on my sicky day.

I am seriously in love with CRT. Going for breakfast and dinner during August trip How did you score the window view? Tell me your secret!

Yay Muppets! I can't wait to find that key! (Maybe I should bring a screwdriver...doesn't look like the key is easily accessible....)

Delicious looking cookie. And yet another snack added to my list.

I think TOT has one of the best queue for long waits. So much to look at!
