"You Are Really Going to Take A Picture of That!" A March 2012 TR *Update 6/11*

Welcome to All Disney Fanatics!


Why hello there everyone! Welcome to my very first trip report and thank you for tuning in! I'm very excited to get started and relive this wonderful trip! So welcome to:


"You Are Really Going to Take A Picture of That!" A March 2012 TR!


This trip was full of laughs, rain, running, stocking (you will have to continue reading to find out what I am talking about), cute boys, Disney magic, and definitely NO sleep!


Before I go any further I think it is necessary to introduce the cast of the trip:


Gabrielle (Gaby for short!)



Hi, I'm Gaby! I am 19. I am currently a freshman accounting student in college. I am completely Disney OBSESSED! I have been going to Disney since I was about 1 yrs old. Of course I don't remember those early trips but I have heard plenty of stories from back then. Anyways, I know Disney World like the back of my hand and can pretty much get around with my eyes closed.

Favorite Theme Park: Magic Kingdom
Favorite Ride: Splash Mountain, Tower of Terror, Toy Story Mania, Soarin
Favorite Show: The Festival of the Lion King (I'm sad I missed it this trip... BEST live show at Disney!), Illuminations, and Wishes
Favorite Resort: AKL, Contemporary, Boardwalk
Favorite Character: Ariel, Belle, and Minnie
Favorite TS Restaurant: Via Napoli, California Grill, 1900 Park Fare (for breakfast)
Favorite CS Restaurant: Sunshine Seasons
Favorite Snack: Cinnamon- Sugar Pretzel
Favorite Disney Movie: Cinderella or Little Mermaid

Before I continue I must tell you that I despise chocolate. Yes, I am one of the very few chocolate haters. I will not eat anything with chocolate in it or near it. Not even white chocolate. My father always says that I can't be his daughter since he loves chocolate and I don't. But don't worry the others in the group LOVE chocolate. I just thought I would share!


Next is Becky!


Becky



Becky is my cousin. She is from New York and is currently a sophomore in college. She is studying Music Theory and Peformance. She has a great voice! She has been to Disney a couple of times when she was little but only twice since she was 14. Becky turned 20 during our trip so there was much celebration!

Favorite Theme Park: Magic Kingdom
Favorite Ride: Splash Mountain, Space Mountain, Maelstrom
Favorite Show: I'm not sure but she enjoyed Illuminations
Favorite Resort: Contemporary
Favorite Character: Belle and Pluto
Favorite TS Restaurant: Via Napoli
Favorite Snack: chocolate chip cookie
Favorite Disney Movie: Beauty and the Beast


Finally there is Jesse!


Jesse



Jesse is Becky's friend from college. I met Jesse for the first time on the trip and so sweet. She is also a sophomore in college and is in pre law. She has been to Disney many times but has only stayed at OKW.

Favorite Theme Park: Magic Kingdom
Favorite Ride: Space Mountain, Peter Pan, BTMRR
Favorite Show: The Festival of the Lion King
Favorite Resort: OKW
Favorite Character: Goofy, Mary Poppins
Favorite TS Restaurant: Via Napoli, Ohana
Favorite Snack: chocolate chip cookie
Favorite Disney Movie: Mary Poppins


Our vacation began March 9,2012- March 12,2012

We were staying at Coronado Springs and OKW! Double the fun!

So, I think that is it for now but I would LOVE if you guys kept reading along! Please feel free to comment and let me know what you think because that just makes this TR so much more fun!

Let the MAGIC begin! ....

Hey everyone! Thank you so much for reading along so far! I hope you are as excited as I am to get this TR rolling! haha Anyways, aside from this trip, I have been to Disney 2 other times within the last 9 months. However, I never did any TR or Dining Reviews for them. So in addition to my March TR, I will be posting Dining Reviews, Hotel Pictures, etc. from my recent trips. Stay tuned!

Real Life Update #1: The New Addition to Our Family!

Hey DISers! I am very excited to be doing my first real life update! Some of these updates will be Disney related and others will simply be me sharing some fun and exciting events!

So, I have always begged and begged my parents for a dog since I was little. However, since there is a six year age gap between me and my brother, they always thought he was to young. Well, they finally decided that it was the right time to get a dog. By the time they decided this I was finishing up my senior year in high school and getting ready to go off to college. Their reasoning was that since I was leaving it would be the perfect time to get a dog so my brother has someone to play with. I was the one that was begging for 15 years to get one! Anyways, we debated on what breed to get and waited months for one to be born that was the color, size, and temperament that we wanted and that would fit our family. The breeder was great!

Since I am away at college, I wasn't going to be able to go pick up the dog with them. I was pretty upset but I was counting down the days until I would get to meet her. Well, that has finally happened!



This is Chloe and she is an Australian Labradoodle (a mix between a labrador retriever and poodle).





This is a picture of her at the breeder's house when we first picked her up!



We were taking her to a doggy park. She got so much attention!



This is a video of Chloe playing with an ice bone. You basically fill it with water, freeze it, and she loves it! Its so cute! Notice the my Dad's Grumpy sweatshirt in the background! Such a Disney loving family!

I miss her already!

I hope you guys enjoyed and stay tuned for the next update!

I'm joining in. I love seeing how the younger generation enjoys Disney, plus you stayed at two of our favorite resorts.

Chloe is absolutely adorable; loved the video.

I will try to keep up (life has been hectic and I've fallen behind on my own TR).
