Met/Engaged & Married @ WDW-Honeymoon PTR 7/3/12-New 4th of July Plans*5/3*

Hello Fellow DISers,

My name is Teresa and my fiancι's name is Greg





This is just the beginning I plan on adding a lot. First though I need to let you know where I have come from.

I am future Disney Bride and I traveled over here from the wedding boards to write up our pre Honeymoon Trip Report.

We are going on our honeymoon right after our wedding which is 7/1/12. Our honeymoon will officially begin 7/3/12. We are using the day in between to spend a little time with our families before we disappear for 2 weeks.

We are a Disboards couple. We first communicated on the DISboards in the Adult/Solo Travelers thread. We first began talking in May of 2011 and we met face to face on June 4th, 2011 when we both took solo trips to Disney World. If you want to know more about that follow the links I will provide below to our story.

We did get engaged at WDW on October 1st, 2011 and will be getting married on the day of our 1 year anniversary at WDW.

We are a Disney couple through and through and going anywhere else for our honeymoon does not make sense. We are annual pass holders and recently just received our closing documents for our new "Home" at the Wilderness Lodge Villas DVC property.

The Proposal

************************************************** *****************
HONEYMOON BASIC DETAILS

Dates:
July 3rd, 2012 to July 16th, 2012

Accommodations: Still unconfirmed until we close on DVC- Our hopes are Wilderness Lodge Villas July 2nd to July 9th then Bay Lake Tower July 9th to July 16th.

Tickets: Annual Pass Holders

************************************************** *****************
Our Honeymoon Theme

So I have not discussed this with Greg yet but I would like for the honeymoon to have some sort of theme just for fun. Or at the very least something that we try to do for fun the whole time no matter where we go.

Ideas I have:
*take pictures of the bride and groom vinylmations everywhere over the whole trip
*take pictures of pop vinyl stitch or pooh for me and donald for him everywhere during the trip

anyone have any other fun ideas?

************************************************** *****************
Our Honeymoon Philosophy
We really want to just take advantage of a long vacation from our busy lives and be able to relax. We are both park people and we will definitely be going to the parks but we also want to visit the water parks, relax at the pool or beaches and maybe rent a boat.

We want to do some stuff we have not done like tours and horseback riding. We also want to go to some restaurants we have not gone to like Victoria and Albert's.

We are also planning on leaving Disney for some day excursions to the beach, NASA, Universal or Sea World are all options.

We really just want to enjoy each other and get some Florida sun as if it is different from Texas sun.

More to come soon including ADR's

Teresa

*Dinner- Liberty Tree Tavern @ 6:20pm
July 5th:

I think it will be a great trip for us. Disney is truly our home away from home it will be great to just be able to play it by ear each day except for 4th of July that will be an early and late day at MK.

I have never stayed that long either our annual passes, TIW and DVC are the reasons that we are going to be able to have this kind of honeymoon. I am so very excited. I thought you would like the food.

No judgement here at all! I am glad you like the food. Anything I am missing I mean clearly I have some holes but any suggestions?

Hehe, I always appreciate when people spell "y'all" the right way too

Hi! Thought I would check out your PTR since you joined mine. And I didn't even realize you were from TX until after I had reponsded to you on my PTR. I was born and raised in San Angelo, so hello fellow Texan!

My husband and I used the Premium plan last January and had a great time. The tours I recommend are both Segway tours. The one around the WS is fantastic, but the Segway's at the Wilderness Campground are a blast. Keys to the Kingdom is a fantastic tour also.

And your ADR's look fabulous! Good thing I just had my lunch. Another place we really like is Yachtsman Steakhouse. That was some good steak, I'm a Texan, I should know.

It is funny because I am a Texan that does not like steak but luckily greg fits in great because he loves it!

We decided to do the keys to the kingdom tour and no other tours. I think we decided we just want to see how one goes and then maybe we might add another while we are there.

**************UPDATE****************

We officially as of this week became DVC members! We are so very excited we have officially closed on our resale that we bought and now we are just waiting to be put into Disney's system.

We have an idea of what we want to do for the wedding stay and the honeymoon stay but we can not book until Disney has us as members.

So here is my plan:

1. Try to get in touch with member services and tell them we just closed and are waiting to be transferred into the system.

2.Then tell them that I just want to find out what the availability looks like for us for our travel dates.

3. Hopefully what I want to book will be available but if not...come up with a plan B and C

Here is what we want to do:

June 29-2: Stay at Boardwalk Villas

June 2-9: Stay at the Villas at the Wilderness Lodge

June 9-16: Stay at Bay Lake Tower


Let's hope it all works out! Send pixie dust my way!

Teresa
