Pictures, Dasani, and...More pictures!! *Complete!*

Intro

Hi everyone!
I’ve always wanted to write a really great trip report. I thought about writing one from my Disney Honeymoon,
but I had so much stuff going on then, I just couldn’t find the time.

But now, the time is right. I just hope I can be entertaining and
interesting and all of the great things that come with a trip report.
I’ll try to give as much information and details as I can, with the help
of my DH (I’ve already warned him that he better remember the details!)

Oh, and did I mention PICTURES? Well, this report will be full of them.
I’m never without my camera. Some may be nice and informative,
and some will make you scratch your head and go, “Huh?”

Yeah, we’re ‘those’ type of people. Weird, crazy, fun-loving,
and most of all, obsessed with Disney! DH has been about 14 times,
I’ve been I think 6. We just can’t get enough.

The most recent trip was our Disneymoon. May 12 was the happy day, followed by 6 nights in the Polynesian, ending with
a cruise on the
Disney Wonder. It was the most amazing vacation, I don’t
think
anything could top it. But, that’s another story entirely.
Let’s focus on the trip coming up…

The Cast

Me Heather - 21, Mickey Mouse and Tinkerbell lover,
aspiring Travel Agent, hopefully for Disney. I dream of the day we’ll
take our future little rugrats and show them the Disney way.

DH Darren - 23, he’s a ‘Goofy’ kinda guy. Possibly more obsessed
with Disney than I. (I just rhymed, it wasn’t on purpose!) He’s a
wonderful husband and a dedicated worker. He definitely needs this
vacation!

Mrs. Michele - DH’s mother, my mother-in-law. Loves Disney,
just not the walking!

Mr. Darren - DH’s dad, my father-in-law. Claims to get sick of Disney,
but can be heard expressing his love for the mickey bar
by the time we see that first billboard. He’s the one who drives us
the whole way. (11 hours!) He goes non-stop, then as soon as we
get to Disney, he doesn’t even rest, we just go straight to the parks.
He’s definitely a trooper.

Mr. Mike - DH’s uncle, won’t be going with us, but he will be joining
us for a few days during the trip.

Mrs. Renee - Mr. Mike’s fiance. See above description.

Summer - Mrs. Renee’s granddaughter. I think she’s 6 or 7? They say
she will ride anything! That’s more than I can say for myself

Dasani - Yes, my water. I can’t be without a bottle of water. Call me
weird, OCD, mental - whatever. I can be seen carrying it with me at
all times. So it will be making many appearances during this trip.
Don’t be alarmed, it’s not an addiction!

Up next, our itinerary and pictures of the cast! Stay tuned!

Dasani is the BEST kind of bottled water!

Good for you for finally starting a TR!

planetcaravan19f- Dasani lovers unite! LOL. This isn't my first attempt at a TR, I think I started one before, I just never got any readers I just need to know I'm not just wasting my time and that someone's actually paying attention to it!

Tat2ddisneymom- I agree! I can't stand Aquafina or any other kind...People think I'm crazy, because water is water. But nooooooo, there's definitely a difference!

Ok, here's an update with some pictures of the 'Cast'. Please remember that this TR will have many, many pictures. I have my camera just as much as I have my Dasani

First of all, there's me and my DH. Together for 7 years, married since May 07, couldn't find a more perfect guy for me.

Here we are on our wedding day:



And after the Luau at the Poly on our Honeymoon:


My DMIL and I:


My crazy FIL:


Here's our cake topper:


Up next, the Dasani episode! Stay tuned!

Absolutely! I don't discriminate! Anyone is welcome, even if you're not a Dasani lover
Welcome to my Pre-TR!

Thank ya ma'am. I like it too. I was so stressed out because it came in, like 2 days before the wedding! I didn't know if we'd have it in time or not. But it was perfect for us.

Welcome aboard! I'm proud that you came out of lurkdom. As a lurker myself, I can see why people lurk. You're afraid you'll be overlooked or ignored. I encourage all of you lurkers to please post! I promise I won't overlook you!

Also, welcome to the Dasani Lovers Club

The where, the when, and the....how???

Ok, so you're probably wondering what my plans are...For all you know, my trip could be next December!
Nah, I wouldn't make you wait that long! Here's my trip details...

We leave Thursday, January 24th, at around 9 or 10pm. Drive alllllll through the night, arrive about 11 hours later, depending on rest stops.
Get to Disney ( ), check into All Star Music (requested the renovated rooms), and probably head to the MK, then Epcot for EMH.
No further plans after that. I like to be spontaneous and just wake up and decide then where I want to go. So you all will just have to be surprised

Anyway, as you already know, DH and I went to the Poly in May. Oh, how I long to stay there again and again...*sigh* But it just wasn't in our budget. We really can't afford anything right now, but we just HAD to get back to Disney ASAP.
We're very blessed, we have a brand new house that's just gorgeous, and each other....But we still want more! You just get that itch that only Disney can scratch.
So we're saving as much as possible and we're on a strict 'only necessary souvenirs' budget. Like my Mickey head ring that I must get on every visit. (Is it my fault the diamond falls out by the time another trip rolls around? Noooo.)

Restaurants that are a must:
Rainforest Cafe in AK (tradition. We love the atmosphere)
Fulton's Crab House (Never been. I LOVE crabs, but I'm a little leary about the taste. I'm from Louisiana, we like alot of flavor! Any input on this restaurant will be greatly appreciated.)
DH would like to try ESPN after seeing a picture of the nachos here on the DIS. I just hope and pray that the Superbowl isn't on that night!
I like watching football, but only LSU

We haven't made any ADR's, we're just going to go with the flow. And since our cash flow is just creeping along right now, we'll probably do faster, cheaper meals. Fine by me, as long as I get a turkey leg and a dole whip!

After 8 wonderful days, we will be checking out on February 2nd. Ok, I don't like talking about this, so nothing more will be said of the dreaded check out day...

Up next, some random information you probably don't care to know...and MORE pictures!
