Intros and such!

So I guess I have to start with the intros! so you guys know who we are and how awesome we are... right? kidding!

I'm Val, 24 from Toronto and I'm a Disney Addict! I'll be the one writing this TR!


The whole reason behind this trip was to get this guy right here...

addicted to Disney World! Thats Craig, aka the one i adore to a million pieces When I met him a year and a half ago he was a 22 year old Disney virgin! I, on the other hand, had just been accepted to the Disney College Program to work in one of the hotels and was just as happy as one could be!

Fast forward a few months and unfortunatly due to some family circumstances I was unable to accept the position at Disney. I was SO upset and I was so so so lucky to have Craig by my side. Seeing how upset I was he decided we were gunna take a trip to Disney!

We decided to go go to Disney World Aug 23-Aug 30 originally, but I was able to convince DBF to extend our vacation to Aug 22-Aug 31!

We stayed at PoP with FREE DINING! We got to all 4 Disney Parks, Typhoon Lagoon, DTD, SeaWorld and both Universal Parks!! It was Craigs very first everything trip, but this was also my first time staying on site and free dining! We were also celebrating our 1 year official anniversary!



So for months and months, with the help of all my PTR readers and fellow Dis peoples I planned and planned in an effort to get Craig addicted to Disney! So obviously, it worked! and in the end Craig even planned two surprises for me himself!

If anyone is interested in more about us, or the planning you can check out my PTR by clicking HERE!

o and P.S - not all my photos will be so fancy! I was just bored and thought Id snazz um up since intros are usually boring!


uP next... T'was the night before Disney!

If you live to be a 100, I hope to live to be 100 minus 1 day. So I never have to live without you.

T'Was The Night Before Disney

So now that we're all aquainted onto the Trip Report!

T'was the night before Disney and all threw the house, my teenage cousins and thier friends were screaming from thier big loud mouths! seriously.. i live with my aunt and my two teenage cousins and my one cousin had her friend over and they were up being giggley annoying teenage girls till like 4am! That combined with the Disney excitment and being anxious of seeing Craig after not seeing him for 10 days before we left equals me with hardly any sleep! I think i finially fell asleep around 5am but not before taking this pic just for my DIS people!


ahh the luggage pic.. it brings so much excitment! the adventure to come!

so anyways i fell asleep at 5ish and i was up at 9ish to get ready to go and recheck everything a million times. Craig and his parents finially got here at 1pm and after the first meeting of the families (which went very well! ) we packed up and left. It was pretty funny because for a second Craigs dad actually thought I just had my carry on as a luggage! and then i reminded him that i usually bring a carry on luggage to his house just for the weekends but nope, i had one big luggage and one small. Craig had one of those big backpack luggages and a smaller backpack as his carry on. (he is crazy, i know) this small backpack is like his child, i swear he carries it around everywhere we go, which is fine... except the zipper is broken! and it was the most annoying thing all week!

but anyways we were off to the buffalo airport, which took us about 2hours-ish to get to from my house. we stopped off at a resturant and then headed into parking....


up next... the airport! (how exciting!)
