Josh & Sarah's May 11, 2013 PTR

So it has happened.. we are finally taking our first Disney cruise. I thought I would start a PTR from the overanalyzer and overplanner!

Who are we?

Josh and Sarah from Peoria, Illinois. We were married April 5, 2012 at Walt Disney World. We had the loveliest wedding at the Wedding Pavilion, reception at GF (with the best food ever!) and a beautiful dessert party with Wishes fireworks.. Every girls dream! It was amazing

Disney trips-
Engagement trip: Jan 1-7, 2011
Planning session: Sept 1-8, 2011
Christmas vacation: Dec. 26-Jan. 1, 2011
Wedding trip: April 1-10, 2012
Anniversary cruise: May 9-21, 2013

Flight planning:
Flight drama as it always goes. Found the $59 flight, hurried and convinced hubby to cruise on Disney line "because hunny the flight is so cheap". Well of course, went to book and it jumped from $59 one way to $179 one way. Boo! But I did a trick that I learned from shopping at Kohl's... I put everything in my cart and at the last minute did not check out but left the website. Mind you, one day later.. coupon for first class at $179. We booked on the spot which will help pay for the checked bags and a little extra space. So cheap flight.. not exactly. Good flight... exactly. Let's hope I can say that post our trip!

So what exactly is your plan, Sarah?
We ended up using David's rental for some DVC points. We usually go through friend's but didn't want to bombard them this year like we have previously.
Pre-cruise we are staying at the Animal Kingdom Lodge which is a new spot to stay and we loved Boma. We upgraded to Savannah view because we thought we'd enjoy some time on the balcony.
Post cruise we are going to stay at Saratoga Springs so we can hit up Earl of Sandwhich (my husband's favorite) and enjoy Downtown Disney our last day.
