Lyn and Tim are doing Disney when?! October 1st-4th 2010

Hi everyone!

My name is Fallon (Lyn for short) and I'm going to try my hand at writing a pre-trip report!

First a little about us!

Lyn

Nicknames: Belle and Penny (you'll get it if you watch Big Bang Theory)
Age: 21
About Me: I am currently a student at Le Cordon Bleu:Boston studying to be a pastry chef. My dream is to take my mom's old business and make it big! I am uber excited that we are going down during Food and Wine because, as a culinary student, I think it'll be loads of fun and very educational! My favorite TV shows are Cake Boss, The Nanny and Big Bang Theory

and now we'll go on to:

Tim

(Tim with his daughter Makenzie)
Nicknames: Beast and Leonard (again, Big Bang Theory. Can you tell we love this show?)
Age: 29
About Tim: His username on here is actually Timmac! He has 4 kids, ages 9-3, all who are simply adorable. He is a software developer and a new owner of DVC! He also has an AP so, as you can guess, he goes down a lot. He also love to run marathons, which prompts this trip!

Now about the two of us:
Tim and I met on DIS about 2-3 months ago. When we first met, neither of us were looking for a "relationship" since he just got out of a marriage, and me out of an engagement. (I have an old account on here where I had a PJ, but when my ex broke it off I made a new account). So we originally were planning on being just friends, and that was it.

During this time, I was looking to start anew, so I was planning on packing my bags and going somewhere I've never lived before. I was born and raised in Florida and decided to attend LCB in Boston (yes, I actually moved AWAY from the mouse! )

As I was getting ready to apply, loads of stuff happened, and since Tim was going to be down for the Muddy Buddy race, we decided it'd be good if we came up to New England together.

On the way to MCO Tim surprised me by taking me to Kona for a date. (Yes our first date was at Disney! That pretty much rocked!), and then we did the monorail loop and got ready for our flight.

After we arrived in Manchester, we decided to become a couple....both coming from rocky relationships, we were nervous to make the decision, but honestly? It's the best one I've made in a while! (Well that, and moving up to Boston, but we'll see if that changes come my first snowfall!).

Shortly after we started dating, Tim was talking about doing the Wine and Dine race at Disney in the beginning of October! He then asked if I would go with him if he went. Let's just say he REALLY had to twist my arm to make me come .
So after DAYS of convincing (ok ok! It was more like 5 seconds!) he booked us to stay at Saratoga Springs from October 1st-4th. We also made dining reservations for the morning of the 4th for Crystal Palace before MK opens! Yay for awesome pictures!

Besides Crystal Palace, we are going to enjoy Food and Wine (as a culinary student, I'm looking forward to this!) Hopefully we can spend a whole day there and attend the seminars. I did food and wine before (kinda) when I worked at Epcot last year on my CP. However it ended EXACTLY a week TO THE DAY before I turned 21! So this year, I get to experience it to it's fullest. (Even though I don't predict a lot of drinking for me, I tend to not like the taste of alcohol).

So yeah. That's us! Look forward to posting more later!

Hi! I saw you on Meghan's PTR. I'm going to be arriving in Disney the day you're leaving, also staying at SSR! I requested the Congress Park section so here's hoping we get it!

I'm very much looking forward to F&W! I went last year for the first time and it was awesome, the food was sooooo good, yum! Looking forward to reading more about your trip.

And wow you have a lot of tickers!

Yeah lol. The bottom 2 are for the same trip though. One for ADR date and the other for the actual trip. I'm debating making a pretrip report for that too because that trip is going to be HUGE lol.

Thanks for reading!

Our Itinerary!

It's been a long day yesterday, so today is destress day! What does that mean?! DIS of course!

So what are we going to do at the World? Hmmm

Today we actually made a ressie for Grand Floridian Cafe for our dinner with my folks (who live an hour and a half south of the World). So we get 2 TS restaurants and food and wine! Not too bad for a 4 day trip!

October 1st
  • Fly in the morning
  • Pick up race packets for the next day (5k for me, both 5k and 1/2 marathon for Tim)
  • Hang out at DHS (where Tim wants me to try out for American Idol!
  • at 9, go to TGI Friday's in Crossroads to meet up with some friends of mine that live in the Orlando area

October 2nd
  • 5k early in the morning
  • go to DAK
  • go back to the resort and rest
  • 10pm--Tim does the 1/2 marathon
  • Wine and Dine party for all 1/2 marathon participants and their guests after the race. Apparently we get to sample the different FaWF food? That'll be cool!

October 3rd
  • Epcot to FULLY experience FaW! TOTALLY looking forward to that!
  • ADR for Grand Floridian Cafe where we will meet up with my folks and sister for dinner
  • MNSSHP with my sister and possibly my parents!

October 4th
  • before park opens ressie for Crystal Palace
  • possibly DTD
  • fly back to home

I have to be at class at 7:00pm on the 4th, so we'll see how that works! I'll be exhausted!

Next up?! Supporting cast!

Apparently I can sing better than I thought! I mean, I do musicals and theater all the time, so we'll have to see! But yes, definitely auditioning.

And yeah, we do have tons packed in! We might be dropping DAK so that Tim can rest up for his race, but we'll see . It should be fun!

Just remembered I had this.

Unfortunately we had to cancel our trip due to medical issues on my end and Tim getting a paycut at work

We're hoping to go next year sometimes (Maybe FaWF?!) but we'll have to see....
