A Stringbean, a Wingnut, and a plan! (A January '12 PTR) TRIP REPORT STARTED!! 1/16!!

Hi everyone, and welcome to my first PTR!

My name is Sara (aka Stringbean), and my DBF is Wingnut. You may remember us from such dining reviews and trip reports as "A Post Open-Heart Surgery Dining Report" and "A Post Open-Heart Surgery Trip Report".

(Astute readers at this point may have gathered that one of us has had heart surgery in the recent past. That was me, mitral valve repair in July '10. Everything is fixed and looking wonderful now!)

Here we are:









Hmm, how did that last one sneak in there?? You'll hear me rhapsodize about those Napoleons from Boulangerie Patisserie several times.

()

I am definitely the bigger Disney nut in our household (although Wingnut will quite happily pore over the menus for endless amounts of time), and Wingnut seems to see this PTR as a new pinnacle of my Disney obsession (I prefer the term "hobby" ). I'm pretty sure I can come up with something else to make him reassess that.

But in the meantime, welcome aboard the happiest PTR that ever sailed!!!

Installment Links:

The plan, which is really more of an idea, so far

Yay Sara! You began a PTR! Awesome.

Obviously I'm joining in. Hopefully this next trip will bode better for you and Wingnut. You know, without the deluge, foot neuromas, allergies and such!

So, spill the beans! Are you contemplating January then??

Oh, I'm sure her itinerary reads like this....

Day One: Epcot

Day Two: Epcot

Day Three: Hmm, where to go? Maybe Epcot

Day Four: Hollywood Studios, then Epcot

Let's place bets!

J/K Sara.
