Awwww, ya'll are too cute! I'm really looking forward to reading more. Plus, I'm just a little jealous b/c I wanted desperately to honeymoon at WDW, but DH won and we went to Paris instead (don't get me wrong, it was wonderful, but it just wasn't Disney- except that I did make sure to take the train to Disneyland Paris for the day so we kind of sort of had a disneymoon too, right?) Anyway, I'm glad you had such a wonderful beginning to your life together!

Congrats!

I'm in.

My DF and I are going on a disneymoon next year, so it'll be great to hear your story! Although it'll only be for a week. I'm so jealous of you!

I'm in! Love it so far. What a great way to start it all. Chest pains though? Did you end up telling your husband about them? Is it based on anxiety or is there something else behind that? Hpe you were feeling better afterwards. Sounds like you were exhausted by the end of the day. Can't wait to read more. Keep them coming. Pictures are great.

Oh, thank you! I waited my whole life to be a Princess at Walt Disney World.... I couldn't imagine it any other way... However, the first trip we ever took together was when he paid for me to go to DLP, and it's the place of our "First Married Christmas" this year... I love DLP! Thank you for reading ~ and Paris for a honeymoon, that is just the height of romance!

Thank you! I did tell Gav and he was so shocked and worried that I never told him at the time. I still can't explain it! I think it was anxiety, although there is a history of chest and heart problems in my family so who knows I was fine from then onwards so probably just over tired!

I'll update now, thank you so much for reading!

Akershus Banquet Hall, Norway, EPCOT

So, we start here on our drive back from the Courthouse on Day two in order to eat here at the Princess Storybook Meal...

So we arrive back at WDW...



...and our driver heads to EPCOT ~ and just as we arrive, it starts to rain heavily. With no choice, Gav and I ran through EPCOT (well, we jogged in case we got into trouble ) and arrived at Akershus just in time. We were soaked, I felt like a drowned cat and the server says "your photo with Belle is just in here". ARGH! I could not believe it. Gavin loves Belle, and here he is, with the beautiful Belle and his soggy bride to be. He asked if he could swap me, ha ha. In the photos below I could not be any soggier or strange looking. Well, I probably can (and will) but for Day two, I was not looking good.

We had our photo and Belle was lovely, then we were seated........for ten minutes. It turned out that not only did I look awful but I also had my eyes closed and so I had to relive my wet photo shame all over again. This time it just looked awful but at least I was awake in it.







Ariel was the loveliest, I asked her about Eric (my hero) and she told me he was well and keeping busy. We did our mermaid pose and Gavin was asked to stand like Eric. I laughed. Then we were asked if we would like to go to the koltbord to get some meats and fish and salad. This originally freaked me out but I was determined to eat things that I did not eat usually at home and so I got some of everything and nibbled at it. They were all surprisingly delicious ~ even the cold fish!

ABH Continued...

Then Princess Jasmine came over and she was really chatty!
Our entrees arrived and we started to eat a little quicker than we normally would because we also had an appointment with the Roots that afternoon for our engagement shoot... The meat was very different to those I have normally eaten but it was really tasty. It was a traditional meal and so I felt I was getting an authentic feel for the country! I also love the way the servers are dressed in those little short trousers and shiny shoes.

Cinderella arrived and we had a chat about getting married and she advised Gavin on how he could be a good Prince.

I was so delighted with her because out of all of the Princesses, she was the ONLY one who asked if she could touch my Prince's arm, ha ha. I thought that was very polite of her, not just to manhandle my husband to be!

Our little desserts arrived and Gavin was very excited!

They were absolutely delicious. Strawberry all the way! We literally ate as fast as we could and snapped a few pictures before having to hijack our server to pay and exit as fast as we could back to the Boardwalk...

Firstly Congratualtions!

I'm enjoying your reviews but I'm so jealous that you didn't gain weight, I gained half a stone in my 3 weeks over there!!

Fulton's Crab House

A little later after unpacking some things (but not too many was we were hotel hoppers this vacation!) we sorted ourselves out as we had evening reservations at Fulton's Crab House in DTD, and then we were meeting Melissa and Robert later at Goofy's Candy Company to make our wedding favours.

Anyway, I digress... The Fulton's Crab House was also something I was a little nervous about as I have never liked crab. Or lobster. I decided that this was the best place to try and change my mind and so I got our ADR well ahead of time.

We arrived at DTD and found Fulton's really easily. We were seated by a very bouncy server and she was just wonderful. Her name was Ashley and she took excellent care of us.


I started off with a Toffee Apple Martini!





We had a fantastic view from our seats and we were so excited. Overly excited! Ashley went through the menu with us and we decided that we would try oysters here as we were sure that trying them here would be the safest place in the World. Not a great risk of being poisoned here!

We ordered one of each kind and they arrived at the table...



Coming up..... Why does Gavin have that video camera in his hand? Ewww!

Continued...

The Oysters...




So they were sat there on the table and we looked at them like they were creatures from out of space. Ashley told everyone around us that we had never had oysters before and suddenly everyone was very interested in us! There was a sauce and wasabi ice with the oysters and it looked very, er, nautical.

Gav whipped out the video camera and said "you first!" I was mortified ~ all of these people were looking at me and cheering! I picked it up and the family behind Gavin said to just let it slide in and then swallow, NOT to chew. I did as I was told! I bucked up my courage, knocked it back and swallowed! It made me shiver and squiggle, it was so funny!


I was so proud of myself!



Then Ashley brought us some special dip and crackers, they were just amazing. I think we have the receipe for the dip somewhere, it was fantastic!



We had some other bread aswell but Gavin noticed that there was the whipped mix condiment instead of butter or margarine and he recalled the "error in judgement" when he ate a large mouthful thinking it was icecream on his cobbler at LTT in February and gave it the thumbs down...

Gavin, who always, always orders a more delicious drink than mine, had some kind of margherita...


See the "flaunting" face?



...and we ate our meal. It was the most sumptuous, unusually and unexpectedly delicious meal. When I first saw it, I was thinking "hmm... crab and potato. Is that it?" but it really needed nothing else! I could have eaten 20 of them myself. To eat them they were extracted from the claw shell, dipped in melted butter and just eaten. I miss them just thinking about them. This was an even tastier place than the California Grill!

We decided to try dessert and I ordered the pistachio brulee.



Gav decided to have another cocktail instead, a "dessert" cocktail as he called it. We are not drinkers at all at home and so we decided to try cocktails on our adventure, as many as we could


I was so full, it was hard work!

We went onto the deck of the Crab House after paying and it was getting a little darker...

Ship Ahoy!!!


We bid farewell to the Crab House (or Crab Shack as Gav was calling it) and headed over to Goofy's to find Melissa and Robert.
