Am I dreaming...or am I really going to the Contemporary? Pre-Trippie-Completed

Well good afternoon everyone!

Here I am...back for a Pre-trippie... hoping a few people will read it.

I'm PopArtGal..but you can also call me Christy. I am 25 years old and will be 26 on February 20.

So I will be 26 during my next trip to the world.

It will be my........ 10th time at the World.

As you can see in my siggie, my very first visit was at the age of 2 years young.

I guess it sparked something in me.

My parents and I will be at WDW from July 19 to August 2.

All aboard!

Here are the places we'd like to eat at. I so can't wait to be able to make ADRs!

- Chef Mickey's for breakfast and dinner (we've been there for breakfast before)
- The Plaza for lunch(A tradition since 2007)
- Sci-Fi for lunch(Also a tradition)
- Tony's for lunch(we had a ressie in July, but cancelled since we didn't feel so good)
- Le Cellier for lunch (never been)
- Chefs de France for lunch (never been)
- Tusker House for breakfast (We've been there once).

We also want to do the "Keys To The Kingdom" tour. In july I did the "Mickey's Magical Milestones"tour and really wanted to do another one.

I did Keys to the Kingdom Tour and it was well worth the time.
If you have a Disney VISA the tour is only $48.

I am going to move you over to the Pre-trip boards.
Let me know when you return, and I'll move you back so you can
start your Trip Report.

Unfortunetly I don't have a Disney Visa.
But I'm sure it'll be worth every penny!



Thanks for the move into the right section.

Hi, Christy!
I just found your Pre-Trippie via Lynn's report!
It's probably going to be a while before we make it back to the World, so I love to live through others' reports!!! Can't wait to read more of yours! I have to admit that I'm very jealous that this will be your 10th trip!!

Your plans sound great so far. I've looked into the Keys to the Kingdom tour, and it sounds like a lot of fun. As far as your dining choices, I've only been to two of them...Chef Mickey's and Le Cellier. We had both for dinner and liked both a lot...definitely good choices in my opinion!

Can't wait to read more!

Hi!

I know I'm lucky to be able to get to WDW for the 10th time. I savor each one.

Have you ever been to POR??

I love the resort.

Although I feel that once we go to a monorail resort, we'll be sad whenever we don't get that perk hehe

We will be leaving July 19 from Montreal at 8:30am. Supposedly we'll arrive at MCO at 11:44am.

Of course, we are taking the Magical Express. Could not envision it any other way.

We will be coming home with a flight to Montreal leaving at 12:30 and arriving at 3:39pm.

We will be staying in a Garden Wing room at the Contemporary. Our very first time there.

Hey guys!

What a hard week!

My students are being brats. I have to scream a lot. And I hate it. I have some very hard groups.

I even have a nerve that feels kinda stuck in my neck.

At least I worked off that bad energy at the gym tomorow.

I also tried to see if I can see the surgeon earlier...but my appointment has to stay February 26.

See, I need to have my gall bladder remove. It's painful... headaches are constant... digestion is bad...and I feel sleepy all the time.

I wanted to see if I could meet with him earlier to set a date...but can't. So it will have to wait.

And once I get the surgery done, I need to take 2 weeks off to rest. It may give me some time to read. I started reading "Twilight" today. I had some time off between classes. I am now at chapter 8 hehehe I love it. I love Edward

Ok... back to planning....

The surgery shouldn't be a problem. I talked to reps from my travel insurance company and they said it shouldn't be any biggy. Even if I don't get the surgery before, I have to warn them. So either way, I kinda need it.

So I'm hoping that I won't need to cancel it.

I've had a rough year, and I need this trip for me mental health... If you don't know what happened to me last year, you may ask. If you already know, you know what I mean hehe

I'm in! I just started a PTR, too!

I'm jealous of you getting to stay at the Contemporary! We'll make it there, one day. But, not this trip as we're booking two rooms.

I'm sorry to hear about your surgery; but, I don't know what you're referring to last year, so you definitely have to fill me in!
