"But WHY did you do it?" Our Annual Disney Christmas trip PTR/TR Completed 10-17-11!!

Why did he do it??
I will certainly explain the title later!

Hi all! My name is Jess and welcome to my latest PTR/TR!
I've been a member of the boards since June 2008, but have only done 1 trip report of my last 3 trips...I think it's the Disney blues of the trip being over with that I run out of steam on the TR, so bear with me as I'm trying to stick with this one!

The cast members:

Jess, 26, that's me...I'm the disney girlfriend, I love planning and being a usual OCD disney planner, and spend at least a few times a week browsing the food boards and keeping up with my fellow dis'ers! If I could go to Disney just to eat all day and night, I would.

I'm an aquarist, I take care of salt water fish, sharks and eels. I have my Master's in Environmental Biology. I love all food, mostly chicken, fish, steak and of course dessert. I'm allergic to milk products, so have to be careful in the world, but thanksfully Disney is great at accomodating the non-dairy ice cream!
Fav Park: Magic Kingdom, with Animal Kingdom following a close second
Dream Resort: Poly or Beach Club
Random Disney favs: TTA, cosmic rays, peanut butter, pirates, toy story mania, the lion king and little mermaid, coconut, test track, green tea, dinosaur, the mountains (space, thunder and splash), haunted mansion and mickey waffles

Blake, 26, the disney boyfriend...we've been together for 6 1/2 years. He also has his master's, but with a concentration in Fisheries Science. As you can tell, he does it very often. That's his citation flounder from this past summer.
Blake is a breakfast guy, we have to do a big table service breakfast at least once on our trip, while the rest of the days are devoted to devouring mickey waffles and french toast at our resort. He also loves fish, steak and brownies.
Favs: Magic Kingdom and Epcot
Dream Resort: Poly or Beach Club
Random Disney favs: Test track, pretzel and cheese sauce from germany, pirates, expedition everest, toy story mania, rock and roller coaster, the mountains (space, thunder and splash), breakfast sausage, jungle cruise, the burger toppings bars

The story:
Blake and I have been going to Disney in december since we've been together. As you can see in my signature, we went in 2005, 2006, 2007, always booking our trip in the summers for christmas time, then 2008 came...and we said maybe we won't go this year....and we booked around October.... 2009 comes, and we say...nope, we're skipping this year....and we booked in late November...and this year, after finally swearing this is the year we're going to skip, we're going to do an early spring trip instead...we book last night... with 13 days to spare before the start of our trip
It's just something about Christmastime. To us, it's not that Christmas makes Disney, it's that Disney makes Christmas. All the lights and trees and decorations...case in point, a little taste of the holidays:

Now, don't you feel more Christmas-y already?
Stay tuned...for more details, including the whens and wheres!
