I think it's cute you refer to yourself as LL in "real" life. I find myself using DIS terms all the time or looking for smilies when writing "regular" emails. The DIS is taking over my life!

I love what you said about starting a family. Not that it's not easy, of course. But that you had decided to take some time to enjoy life, take care of you and enjoy being married to the man of your dreams. I think that's an excellent strategy!!

Please tell Marc I am singing your PTR title as I type.

Port Orleans Riverside sounds nice! I think you'll love it!

Looking forward to hearing more about your plans!!
I think in terms of smilies too. It's hard to slow down and enjoy but I am really trying too.

Of course you did! I also told him about the doors not opening because of the Christmast Lights, I like to think that pushed him into thinking May was a great idea.

I know what you mean about DIS infiltrating real life.... I THINK in smilies!!! I can't tell you how many times pops into my head during 'normal' conversations

I even hand drew this guy while writing in my trip journal


Paula
I drew the smilies in my trip report journal too!

We even thought about Animal Kingdom, I am going to do some research later on in the week to come to a conclusion on where to stay. By the way, I LOVE your other trip report!

Stacy
We really loved the feel of the Wilderness Lodge. It was so very relaxing. We loved the boat to Magic Kingdom too. In my TR, there is more on what we liked about WL.

You should do one, it's a lot of fun and it really keeps the Disney magic alive!

Ok went back and read it...I didn't even pick up on the date in the Title...you are going TWICE? Please tell me that you are getting an AP for at least one of you so that you can get a room deal on the December trip!
Welcome! I haven't thought about the AP yet. AP's overwhelm me.

It really is, if there wasn't a deal than I probably couldn't justify going twice in 2009.

Lumiere.

Featherduster: [to Lumiere the candlestick] I've been burnt by you before!

I truly feel loved with the responses from everyone since starting my PTR. The DIS really has enabled me to make so many friendships with incredible people.

I made my first official May 2009 Trip Purchase.

Anyone want to take a guess?

No?

Okay. I will tell you then. I bought the Chandelier Tee Shirt from Lane Bryant.



TADA! I am very excited over this shirt. As most of you know I developed an obsession with all the awesome themed Disney Light Fixtures while on my last trip. I caught myself at Longhorn's this weekend checking out their light fixtures, musing on how neat they were. Clearly I have a problem. I am a little worried about the size of the Tee because sometimes their Tee's are cut smaller than their regular shirts. That's okay though because I have motivation to fit into it. Losing a bit of weight is one of my PreTrip Goals. If anything can help motivate me it's a Tee with a kickbutt Chandelier on it. Marc & I started walking just a few weeks before we went to Disney and I think it really helped us to not get as tired as quickly. I am hoping to do some major PreTrip walking/exercising. I am going to keep track of how many walks that I go on between now and May I think it will help keep me motivated. So if I don't post walking updates for a bit you all have my permission to kick my butt into gear.

I'm really quite anxious that Disney hasn't posted the May 2009 hours yet. I have been checking multiple times a day but so far no luck. We've decided for now not to get Park Hoppers so I want to plan which parks we will go too on which day along with our ADR's. I have a rough draft of "The Plans." But I am still not 100% satisfied. I used the May 2008 hours as a guideline.

You may have noticed the Quote said to Lumiere at the beginning of this post. Each PTR update that I do is going to have a Disney Character as the Title along with a quote from them. The Character will be related somehow to the post that I am doing, Lumiere - Chandelier Tee Shirt, see where I am going with this? I don't think I can always get the quotes to match but I will do my best. I am doing this not only because I love Characters and movie quotes but because Characters are going to be a big focus of our trip. I had a blast meeting the few characters that I did in September but I feel like I missed out on a lot of characters greetings, especially at MNSSHP. I am especially excited about the prospect of meeting Tinkerbell and the other Fairies. I watched the Tinkerbell movie last week and it's really cute. Really cute! I have never been a huge Tink fan but over the last few months I have really grown to love her. I was also impressed that Lucy Liu, America Ferrara, Kristen Chenoweth, Raven Symone and Angelica Huston all voiced the other Fairies. Very cool. I recommend that you watch it.

For now I am going to leave with you with a list of possible breakfast ADR's. I welcome any comments or opinions on them as I still have some time until I can book them. We have 21 meal credits on the Deluxe Dining Plan so we can afford to do a few of them. Ideally, I think we would like to do 3 or 4. I don't want breakfast every morning especially if it's during park time. I think that we will use some of our snack credits to bring back "breakfast" foods. School Bread is considered a breakfast of champions, right?

Breakfast ADR's.

* Crystal Palace --- This one is pretty set in stone. We LOVED getting into Magic Kingdom before the park opened. I dream about that Breakfast Lasagna and Breakfast Pizza. Yummmmm.

* Akersush Royal Banquet Hall --- I am not too interested in lunch here but the thought of a Princess Breakfast sounds pretty darn awesome to me. Plus the Unofficial Guide talks about their "massive iron chandeliers." I think this would also give me the chance to knock a few Princess character meet & greets off my list with a minimal amount of park time sacrificed. You know I wasn't too convinced but now listing my reasons makes me even more sure that this would be a good meal for us.

* O'hanas --- I sacrificed this reservation last trip for the Crystal Palace one. I am not 100% even though I would love to meet Lilo & Stitch. The food doesn't do much for me, it's more about the characters.

* Kona Cafe --- Another ADR that was sacrificed last trip. We had planned to go one morning but let's just say we were tired. I blame the way too comfy Wilderness Lodge beds. I don't want the Tonga Toast, I want the Macadamia Nut Pancakes. Of course I would convince Marc he wants the Tonga Toast so I could try it. Muhahahaha!

* Main Street Bakery --- Though not a place that needs an ADR, I would still like to eat one of their yummy looking selections. I plan to fit this in on a MK morning when we aren't doing CP.

To answer, yes, school bread IS the breakfast of champions.

Much a like a cinnamon bun from the Main Street bakery so huge, you'll question your capability to really eat it all by yourself, and then do it anyway.

Great update! Good for you on the shirt. Hey, anything that gets you excited for your trip and motivates you to get healthy is a-okay in my book! Everyone needs a little motivation sometimes.

I hope you eat at Kona so I can live vicariously through you. I still haven't made it there yet. And I've debated breakfast with the princesses at Akershus as well, but have never bit the bullet. I'm DED over the fact that the massive iron chandeliers are a selling point for you. You crack me up, dearie, but in a totally good way.
