Trust your heart and let fate decide- A couple's trip report-Quick Update PG 11

Like a fairytale, it begins...

Once upon a time, there was this princess (that's ME!). She spent TEN whole years wandering, trying to find her place in life. And then one day it happened! It must have been a bit of pixie dust, or magic. Maybe it was fate or karma, but it happened. All the pieces fell together, just like a puzzle.

First she got a great job (I know, Princesses DON'T work, but someones gotta pay the bills!). Then after a horrible break-up (and a still not finished TR with the evil villian that shall remain NAMELESS) she met him...her prince charming. Tall, dark (well he used to be, but I can't say tall, bald and handsome) and hansome! Amazingly funny, smart, romantic (recently left love notes down the stairs that spelled out I LOVE YOU) but he LOVES Disney!

Someone pinch me cause I must be dreaming!!

As the Prince and Princess fell deeper in love, and the Princess's job became more stressful, the idea of a vacation came up. The prince wanted to travel to somewhere warm, to sleep in all day and eat and drink the night away. The princess said that sounds ok...but how about a trip to DISNEY!! 7 nights for the price of 4 was right up the Prince's ailey (he might be wonderful, but a bit frugal).

In the next Kingdom, there lived another Princess (possible not so high-maintenance). Princess Lauren also dreamed of returning Disney, but ALSO had a frugal (but kind and handsome) Prince. 7 nights for the price of 4? Plus seeing the look on his princess's face was too much for Prince Patrick.

The Cast:

Princess Amanda aka MainStMandy- Proud former CM and OCD-Planner extrodinaire. Just turned 29 (and hating it!) I've been to Disney more times than I can count.

Prince Eric aka PlayStationGeek-Has been to Disney ONCE, probably was about 8 years old. I think they just went to MK for a few hours. Is beyond excited about this trip and is letting me do ALL the planning!

Princess Lauren aka PhotoGuru- One of my dearest friends, who is also a professional photographer. She loves Disney and has only been once I think (last August for her and her hubby's first anniverary).

Prince Patrick aka Petrick the Easy Going- Pat is...well just along for the ride. Is excited to eat and make Lauren happy, lol. One of the most easy going guys I have ever met! Is the only NON-drinker in the group (history of alcoholism in his family I think

Both Eric and Pat work nights so getting them to adjust their sleep schedule should be interesting.

The plans:
Well since hours haven't come out yet we are planning based on Touring Plans crowd calculator.

Oh and Lauren and Pat arrive a few days after us and stay a few days later. They are driving

Saturday 6/6- We arrive and...it's Eric's BIRTHDAY! He doesn't know it but we are going to ESPN club for his birthday dinner. I don't know when we will arrive so I have nothing else planned

Sunday 6/7- AK and dinner at Wolfgangs. Lauren hated it there so she asked that we go before they get there

Monday 6/8- Water Park maybe with dinner at Boatrights and mini-golf

Tuesday 6/9- Lauren and Pat arrive! Taking Eric to WWOS for the NFL experience (birthday present). Eating around the world at EPCOT

Wed 6/10- Magic Kingdom daytime with dinner at Raglan Road and Disney Quest. Eric is a HUGE video game geek!

Thur 6/11- This is the anniversary of our first date We are having dinner at either Citricos, Narcoosees or Cali Grille (I can't decide!) and not sure about what we are doing during the day

Fri 6/12- This morning Lauren and I are going to have breakfast at CRT!! We are sending the boys to Golf. Eric LOVES LOVES LOVES golf but has a degenerative eye condition and has trouble seeing the ball sometimes. Pat isn't a huge golfer but is going to play with him. Not sure about the rest of the day but dinner at Le Cellier

Sat 6/13- Eric is kinda excited about Star Wars Weekend so we may tackle this for a bit. Don't know about dinner.

Sun 6/14-Boma Breakfast, AK. Not sure about the afternoon or evening

Mon 6/15- Maybe water park, dinner at 'Ohana and fireworks at MK

Tue 6/16- Going home

Well you girls know how I love to shop...for dresses

We have finally decided on Narcoosees for our anniversary dinner. Eric LOVES the idea of walk on the beach after dinner (beware of alligators!!), and I like that I have never been before, so it's a new experience we can share.

I would love to get cute sundress for dinner...nothing too fancy.


Way too expensive!!

in purple

Cause I'll be super FIT by then!
