Katie and Kellan's Disneymoon PTR - Updated 8/16
Hello, and welcome to my very first pre-trip report! I’ve been lurking on the DIS for quite some time, making comments and occasionally asking questions, while planning my family’s last couple of trips (I’ve been the family travel agent ever since high school) but I’ve never thought about doing a PTR or TR until now.
One of my favorite things to do on the DIS is to read other people’s trip reports, so I thought, hey, I should just go ahead and do one for this trip, which is going to be an extra special trip for me. Why, you ask?
Because it’s going to be my honeymoon!
I’ve been working so hard to make this the most special trip for both of us. Of course, as my DH often reminds me, I’m prepared for things to go wrong and just go with the flow.

My name’s Katie. I’m a 30-something high school English teacher from Upstate New York. I’m lifelong Disney lover, thanks to my parents who grew up watching The Mickey Mouse Club, Spin and Marty and The Hardy Boys. We went to WDW for the first time in spring of 1989 and fell in love. Being from New York, it’s a little more difficult for us to get to the World, but it’s our place to go whenever we have something to celebrate! We’ve gone when I graduated from middle school, high school and college. I’ve also been to Disneyland Paris and Disneyland in California.

My DH’s name is Kellan. He’s 25, studying full time to be either an English teacher or a lawyer (still hasn’t decided fully), works as a part time butcher, and is originally from Chattanooga, Tennessee. He grew up with almost no knowledge of Disney, except for the fact that Bambi scarred his mother (didn’t it scar everyone?) and a love of The Lion King, because of the connection with Shakespeare. As soon as he moved to NY, I set about to change that and now he proudly says his favorite Disney movies include Sleeping Beauty (mine too!) and Beauty and the Beast. Obviously, he’s never been to WDW before and I’m so glad I get to be the one to experience it with him for the first time!
Here’s a couple pictures of us from our engagement photo shoot.
We were going for a Mad Men-type style in the photos.
How did this NY girl meet a TN boy? At the country’s second largest Science Fiction and Fantasy convention, Dragon*Con! We’re both huge geeks and had so much in common. We discovered we both loved Firefly, Star Trek, comic books and movies.
After we left the con, we stayed in touch and eventually, Kellan moved to NY to be with me and go back to school. We currently live in the Southern Tier area of NY, with our three kitties:
River - Our first kitty. Once we got her, we had to have more. She and her brother are almost two years old.
Jayne - River's littermate. He's a big, lazy boy. And no, Jayne is NOT a girl's name.
And Kaylee - She's our baby, only seven months old and very cute!
Kellan and I dated for almost two years when he proposed on a beach in Maine and I said yes. The next day, we got to planning a wedding.
