2-day Proposalpalooza

After several months of planning and postponing, our short weekend trip is now over. My girlfriend and I went to WDW on Septempber 29th and stayed for 1 night at Coronado Springs in the Ranchos. It was my first time staying there in many years, and her first time ever staying in a Disney hotel. I loved the decor in the room, especially the gemoetric patterns and dark woods, not to mention the mickeys incorporated into the bed covers.

We arrived at MK saturday morning, about 5 minutes after the park opened. We spent about the first half hour just taking pictures around the entranceway and mainstreet. Then we decided we'd better get a move on before lines start building, so we headed straight for Space Mountain. We got fast passes, and were excited to find we would have to be waiting too long, so we went into a shop in Tomorrowland and looked and some nice plushy Stitchs for a while. We then went to Space Mountain where it took us about 10 minutes to get on the ride. After getting off we headed to the Carousel of Progress, I wanted to make sure we did some things on this trip that she'd never done before.

From there we took the scenic route towards Liberty Square since we had an ADR for the Loberty Tree Tavern (a first for us both). We stopped and stood in line to meet Merida, but it took long enough that we had to duck out and head to lunch. Funny enough, while we were waiting we realized we didn't have an autograph book, so I ran out of line to the strategically placed wagon/kiosk next to the meet 'n greet and snagged one.

We checked in at Liberty Tree about 5 minutes early, and were seated in no time. It was packed, and noisy and full of kids. But we had been at Disney less than 4 hours at this point so it didn't bother us. Our server Samira was absolutely wonderful. She was very friendly, courteous, and quick. We were seated in the John Paul Jones area, and loved the mugs our drinks were served in.

After lunch we went to the Town Square Theatre and got pictures with Mickey and Minnie, and then Cinderella, Belle, and Rapunzel. Rapunzel is my gf's absolute favorite, she says she can identify with her. I say its the blonde, she disagrees. The ladies were wonderful and my gf loved that Cinderella asked permission to put her arm in mine lol.
So we succesfully broke in the autograph book.

Abotu that time it was getting close to the point we needed to head to Coronado Springs to check in and get ready for our BIG DINNER! (Next post)

(All of these events were interspersed with shopping and snacking)
