Engaged at Disney-Our Sept. 06 trip with Pics! Updated 8/7--after the big proposal!

I've been meaning to do a trip report forever. And after lurking around the trip report boards and reading about everyone else's trips, I figure, better later than never for my trip report!

A little background:

Who went on our trip:

Me--Trish--the biggest Disney fan in the group, the vacation planner, the girl who was waiting forever for her boyfriend to propose and totally wasn't expecting my perfectly wonderful proposal at Disney!

Roy--my boyfriend when the trip started, and my fiance at the end of our trip. He was married before and has 3 kids from that marriage.

Roy Jr--Roy's 12 year old son, from now on referred to as Junior so as not to get anyone confused. We take his kids one at a time on our vacations.

Jenny--Roy's mom

Bob--Roy's step-dad

Denise and the kids--Bob's daughter and her kids, we don't really like them, and tried not to interact with them during the trip, but thought I would mention them as they might be mentioned a few times throughout the trip report.

***********************************************

Jenny has a timeshare off Disney property--it's at Star Island in Kissimmee. It's really just about a 5 minute drive to the entrance of the Disney property for us, not too bad. She has one timeshare that is every September, and one that is every other October. Obviously we went to the September one in 2006. My other trips were in October 2003, September 2004 and October 2005.

Roy and I are getting married in October this year. I really want a Disney wedding, but we can't afford it, so we're getting a Disneymoon instead. Well, we're getting his mom's September timeshare week transferred for us to December and we'll be going to see Disney done up for Christmas. We're also going on the yearly family trip with his family when she has her timeshare at the end of October as well. I'm so excited to have 2 Disney trips planned for this year!

Places we went to this year: Downtown Disney, Sea World, Magic Kingdom and Epcot.

I think that's about it for my intro....on with the trip report (done as time permits....)

Enjoying your report! Boy, that's a good sized 12 year old! I'll bet it's fun feeding him

Seriously, everyone looks like you're having fun. It's neat to read a laid back report.

Thanks! The proposal is on our Epcot day, which was September 21st! It was definitely a memorable proposal with some fantastic pictures!

Thanks so much! Junior definitely is a big 12 year old! Everyone thinks he's a lot older than he is! Yeah, he eats us out of the house! Luckily we only have to feed him on the weekends, his mom gets him the rest of the time.
We defintely are very laid back on our vacations. We tend to only do a few parks and take time to relax during the week.

I'm in Va Beach too! The drive to Orlando isn't too bad. Have you done it before?


I was going to do a little bit more today, before I head home from work, but I'll save that until probably sometime over the weekend. I've got a few odds and ends to finish up here at work before I leave for the day.

Just wanted to thank everyone for visiting!

Yes, we have done the drive from here to Orlando...But, not with our youngest,who is 2 1/2....The older kids are use to it. I have a 12 1/2 yr old son as well, and a 7 yr old daughter, and 2 1/2 yr old daughter....

How cool you are in Va Beach too... What part? We are in the Pembroke area?

WOW...we are close by.. I have a friend who lives in that area...Is your husband to be in the Military...seems like most people in this area are.. My husband use to be in the Navy(thats how we ended up here)but got out yrs ago..

Where do you work?

So how many hours did it take you all to get to Disney?
We are actually driving down to the Ft Lauderdale area first, my parents live down there. That extends the drive for another 3 1/2 hrs...

Just found your trip report today. I can't wait to hear more! I know the feeling of traveling with others and not always wanting to follow the same schedule! We are always ready to go and the grandparents like to be more laid back!

Can't wait to hear more!
