There was no Animal Kingdom, Hollywood Studios was MGM, there was a ride that was like a chair lift that took you across the park, I swear there were cars parked at MK, the MGM parade ended with Genie and a sign saying "I'm outta here" (which I remember because I hung that picture in my middle school locker), and our tickets were paper with our picture on it and when you used it, the machine stamped the date on it as well as punched a hole. Needless to say, its been a while!! So I have no idea what will be on my KTTW. I've read up on it on a few places but I've also read conflicting information as well. Is it just my room key and dining plan and my tickets are separate or are my park hopper tickets on the card? What time do the first buses leave for the parks? I want to make it to rope drop every day of whatever park I go to so i want to make sure I'm up in plenty of time. I know that stuff is on these forums somewhere but there are so many places to look. If someone could point me in the right direction, I'd appreciate it. Thank you!

Im staying at All-Star Movies. I'm going to make side trips to AoA as well as the moderate hotels to see where I may want to stay next time. Leaning towards POR/POFQ personally but we'll see!
If your looking for Disney world vacation tips, this is my personal favorite thread for that (so far): http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=772074

Also, your welcome to PM me if you'd like my personal list of tips (things I gathered from the thread above and elsewhere on the internet as well as through visits). It's a little long which is why I'm not posting it here.

When: Our first full day in Orlando. (Sunday before the meet)

How: Well, i had some help. Her parents (and grandparent) happened to be visiting the same week we had scheduled our trip for the meet.... so I had her mom take the ring to Florida so that there wouldn't be any chance of her spying it on the trip down [or when helping me pack while I was at work the day before we left for the drive down].

Her mom and Family had also planned on making Rope Drop at the MK that day, and wanted to get the group photopass shots in front of the castle first thing in the trip before everyone had the worn out look about them later in the week. After the pictures the idea was to go to Fantasyland, and ride some of the rides there before the crowds grew.

Soooo..... The night before while talking about the plans, her mom was talking about how slow her grandmother was walking around. So I 'suggested' that after the group shot, Rachel and I would swing by the Haunted Mansion to grab the new fastpasses and meet everyone in Fantasyland to try and save time. Her mom agreed that would be a great idea. (Her mom is also active on the DIS, while Rachel isn't so much anymore.... So it's VERY easy to convince her of something park related when her mom and I both talk about it matter of fact-ly.)

Anyways, So after the pictures were taken at the hub and we were all doing the talking/standing around/organizing on the next phase of the plan, Her Dad (and sister) ended up shielding me and her mom from her view while her mom handed me the ring.

We then headed other to the Liberty Square area on our way to the Haunted Mansion. While beside the Hall of Presidents, in that area near the snack stand where the tables are located..... Which happens to be the area where we met the first time at the meet last year...... I was behind her a bit and said, "So do you realize it was about a year ago right here that we met the first time?" When she turned to respond, I just dropped to my knee and broke out the ring.

Needless to say, she was taken completely by surprise.

Us girls can be pretty good at spying when it involoves bright shiny objects like diamonds!. Which for the record, you did a great job picking out!

Again I want to wish both you and Rachel my best! She really is a great girl. You both are very lucky! Please keep us posted on wedding plans.

And thanks for the heads up on FP for HM!

Will do... And thanks for the ring comment. I've gotten a few compliments on it since she's been showing it off.

The decision to do it there was actually a virtual last minute decision. I was still working on trying to figure out exactly how and where to do it when I thought about the Liberty Square idea.

A Disney Wedding would be nice, but I'm thinking it will be outside my current budget (This trip was EXPENSIVE.... and I gotta pay off the ring too... lol). There's also the fact she has a pretty large family that she'd like to be at the wedding, so a Destination wedding (like to WDW) would be difficult to pull off. Honestly.... i'm starting to think maybe doing the big wedding closer to home to make it easier for her friends and family to attend, and then maybe trying to plan a small vow renewal or something at Disney around an anniversary to give us that Disney Wedding experience.

I just looked up the cost! So do they do the weddings while people are at the park? Anyone ever seen one? I didn't know them with the castle in the back like that, and carriage down mainstreet????

Castle Weddings are usually done before the park opens to the public.
