Our Magical Trip of a Million Dreams, Wishes & Surprises~Engaged at Disney(6/26 p30)

The Mandatory Trip Reporting Introduction

Hi everyone and welcome to my first trip report! Some of you already know me from my pre trip report here on the DIS. Check it out if you want to learn more about the cast, itinerary, and all the planning that went into our fabulous Disney vacation. Snow White & the 7 Dwarfs are Set Loose – Pre Trip Report

So with that said, welcome to my old readers, new readers, and of course, my favorite, lurkers!

So let’s begin.

Let me start by saying that this vacation was the most magical & memorable vacation of my life. Disney has always and will always be my happy place. It is the one place I can go to and forget about any worries, doubts, and fears I may have. I go to Disney and I forget about reality. It is truly the only place which can do that for me.

Every time we plan a vacation to Disney, I just know it will be magical and this trip was no exception. I just knew it was going to be great because DBF and I would be celebrating our 5 year dating anniversary at Magic Kingdom during the course of our trip, but little did I know that this vacation was a fully orchestrated plan for DBF to propose. Hmm...and I thought I was in charge of all the Disney planning, guess it was DBF who was in charge the entire time, he just didn’t let me know it.

With all that said I am going to very briefly reintroduce the cast to everyone because DBF’s family was joining us on our magical vacation. For more background info on each of our cast members check out my pre TR.

The Cast

Julianne (22) – Me – Cinderella16- Writer of this TR, lover of all things Disney.

Justin (24) – DBF/DFiancé (DF) – The real master planner of the vacation, the love of my life.

The Accomplices, Otherwise known as DF’s Family:
Karen – DF’s mom

Jeff (21) – DF’s brother

Janna (17) – DF’s sister

Jeanne – DF’s aunt

Ken – DF’s uncle, married to Jeanne

Matthew (7) – DF’s cousin, son of Jeanne & Ken

Our vacation lasted from June 15 – June 28. However, we were at Disney from June 17 – June 23 and I know that is the part you are all interested in! We rented a vacation home through a company called All Star Vacation Homes and had a wonderful house only 3 miles away from Disney property!! (more on the house later)

During the Disney and best part of our vacation we visited all four parks, both water parks, and DTD. We had ADR’s at Hollywood & Vine, Chef Mickey’s, Alfredo’s, Cinderella’s Royal Table, The Spirit of Aloha Dinner Show, & Crystal Place, and we were on time for them, well most of them.

I will guarantee once you finish this TR you will be sick of seeing pictures of DF and I because well... they are mostly of us, we took a lot of them with our own cameras, and stalked Photopass photographers. Like I said they are mostly of DF and I, so you are forwarned, and no we aren’t that conceited. I promise there are pictures of other important things too, like food.

And I also guarantee that as you read this TR you may laugh and you may cry (hopefully happy cries of course).

I promise to do my best to remember all the details of our trip, it wasn’t that long ago of course so I shouldn’t have a problem! I hope I haven’t bored you all to death with this mandatory trip reporting introduction and I hope you will continue to join me as I tell you all about our magical trip of a million dreams, wishes, and surprises.
