Meeting the Mouse before the snow comes again Pre Trip Report

I chose this PTR name because its exactly my thinking. You see, my DH left me home alone for my first ever Canadian winter (ok, it wasnt his fault, the Military sent him away for training, but still!) and while I shoveled the snow and let out our doggies and tried to get warm with hot chocolate my dear friend and I (blue-skies) decided to start vacation planning, and before we knew it we were heading for the Mouse! DH knew we were talking and thinking about it, but the day I was officially paying our down payment it finally hit him (while we were on the phone) and he cried really? Were really going to Disney?!!! We decided on October for a few reasons, but since it fell in October I let DH know that its our 3-yr Anniversary trip (ie no gifts needed, unless they are Disney related!). This works well for us, as we eloped and plan to (hopefully) renew our vows for our 5th year anniversary either at WDW or DCL. So now I get to enjoy this city for the summer and before I have to deal with all that cold stuff falling from the sky again well be heading to Florida!

The main cast of my PTR are me and DH:

Me (25):
I was lucky enough in my life to have wonderful Grandparents who loved Disney and took me (and my cousin and brothers) there many times in our life. This will actually be the first time I will ever go there without my Grandfather, as he passed away in April. We were planning this trip before he passed, so it was hard for me to think about going there without him, but over time Ive realized that it is a place so full of the happy memories we made with him. Im also going there with my DH and BFF who were able to get to know him (and visit the World with him) and so they can share memories with me while we are there. Oh, and by the way, Im from Texas. I met DH online (hes Canadian), and its been a long ordeal with immigration and his Military career, but I finally got to move up here to Winnipeg last April (right after the winter left& and the short visits I took while it was winter here did not prepare me for what I had to deal with this year! -40 degrees is a nightmare!). Other important info about me: My favorite character / movie is Sleeping Beauty and I am a huge Star Wars Fan (esp Yoda!)! I'm also on Weight Watchers and so I'm trying to prepare for our Deluxe Dining!

DH (23):

Never knew what he was missing, but found out last year on his 1st Visit to the World! I cant say it was his first visit to meet the Mouse, as we technically only caught glimpses of him (this year he is gonna really meet him!) He keeps (jokingly) telling me hes going to wear his 1st Visit pin again this year for a few reasons. 1) He didnt get it last year until a few days into the trip, so he thinks somehow that he has a right to wear it in the Magic Kingdom, probably because he spent his day at the Magic Kingdom wondering where all the 1st Visit Pins came from and wishing he had one! And 2) He doesnt yet feel like a true Disney Veteran I guess& I think he will start to though when he starts showing around BSBF (hes already excited to show him around WS, especially the Canada Pavillion!). Ive told him though that they changed the design and that everyone will know he was there last year if he tries to wear it!!! DH is also a huge Star Wars fan and his favorite characters are Sorcerer Mickey, Wall-E, and Stitch! He loves to look at dining reports and dream about all the food hes gonna get to eat on DxDP!

(this is the closest he got to Mickey, and it was his favorite Mickey! But the line was too long and my brother said no way would we be waiting!)

Supporting cast (potential stars of their own PTR):

Blue-Skies (whom I will not be refering to as BS, LOL):

Blue-Skies, Chef Mickey, and Me on my 21st Birthday in 05

My BFF! We met in college and she went with me on her first (and only) visit to Disney World on my 21st birthday trip! It technically feels like her first visit though since its her first time going there on her own (without parents/grandparents) and its her first big getaway with her DBF (I have a hard time calling him her boyfriend& they have around 8 or so years together!) Blue-Skies says: "My favorite movies/characters are Belle (from Beauty and the Beast), Jack Skellington, Stitch, and Eve (from Wall-E)".

Blue-Skies Boyfriend (BSBF):

BSBF and the beautiful Blue-Skies
He is the only one of us who can truly wear the First Visit Pin! Blue-Skies says: "My DBF is also a Star Wars fan (which I have enjoyed as well). His favorite characters are Stitch and Wall-E. I know that once we experience Disney we will probably have a few more favs!!"

We are checking into the PoP Century on October 3rd (for free dining, upgraded to deluxe dining!) and checking out on October 10th. We have MNSSHP tickets for October 9! We have a tentative itenerary and schedule for ADRs, but it will all get finalized when the hours are released in July! Ive been keeping a blog of my Disney pre-planning, but I decided I have so much fun reading other PTRs and TRs that maybe I should make one on here to share. Blue-Skies also reminds me that in addition to the anniversary DH and I are celebrating, we are also celebrating seeing each other again (since I've moved)!
