The Lesser Known Eighth Dwarf, Dumpy, Comes to Disney Aug '11 **NEW 2/20 TR link!!!


Hello DIS Friends! Welcome to yet another trip adventure of great Canadian style. For those who have followed along on all my trips, welcome back! And for those who are just joining in, you're in for some laughs and crazy conversation (Don't say I didn't warn you )

Allow me to introduce myself:



Yup, that's me, Jenbear123 (aka Jen). As you can tell, I'm the crazy person who gets you up at 6am to be at the turnstiles an hour before the park opens. I have an eternal love affair for Chip & Dale (which was made even stronger on this trip) and have been on countless number of trips within the last 2 years.

Now for those who have read my TRs from before will know my partner in crime on all these trips is usually my sister Bubba. I'm sad to say that she did not join me this time, which made for a very different trip but in a good way!

My travel buddy this time was none other than my good friend, Stitch:



Why the name Stitch? Well her favourite character is Stitch of course! She has been to the World a few times before our trip but had missed out on SO much. Being the wonderful tour guide, planner, WDW aficionado that I am, I was able to give her the FULL experience. I'm sure she appreciated it even after everything.....but I'm getting ahead of myself.

We stayed at Coronado Springs from July 28th-August 4th




Here's where I throw in a new twist. After reading so many other great PTRs and TRs with fabulous games, I've decided to "borrow" those ideas (thanks to those who have done games like this. You know who you are). Before each update, there will be a series of predictor-type questions that have to do with what happened that day. It's up to YOU to figure out what happened. There's a REAL prize for the person who gets the highest score so I hope you all have your thinking caps on. Kindly post your answers here in super secret white text.


Without further ado, here's the first round of questions!

1. Did we claim our bags at the airport before getting on DME?

2. What stop on DME was our resort?

3. a) Were our room requests honoured?
b) If yes, what were they? Hint: You might want to look at a CSR resort map

4. Did we have a pool view or parking lot view?

5. Where did we eat lunch at CSR?

6. What was the first thing we bought at DTD?

7. We ended up having time to kill before our ADR at Raglan Road. Where did we go to spend this spare time?
Hint: It is outside DTD

8. What dessert did we order at Raglan Road?



Good Luck and thanks for reading!

Another Canadian here! I'm interested in hearing more about what it's like travelling with someone you've spent so little time with, though I assume you knew each other pretty well prior anyway?

Well, I guess I might as well sign up for this one.

I'll have to post my game responses later.

I'm back. And here are my responses:
1. Did we claim our bags at the airport before getting on DME?

Hmm, I think I recommended that you claim your bags, but the question is: would you listen to me? Probably not, but for some reason I'm going to say that you did. You claimed your bags at the airport.

2. What stop on DME was our resort?

Second?

3. a) Were our room requests honoured? Yes.
b) If yes, what were they? Hint: You might want to look at a CSR resort map I'm thinking you wanted to stay in Ranchos?

4. Did we have a pool view or parking lot view? Parking lot.

5. Where did we eat lunch at CSR? The Pepper Market!

6. What was the first thing we bought at DTD? Shirts at World of Disney.

7. We ended up having time to kill before our ADR at Raglan Road. Where did we go to spend this spare time?
Hint: It is outside DTD Boy, this is a tough one. Did you take a boat to Port Orleans and back?

8. What dessert did we order at Raglan Road? You had the bread and butter pudding.
