I know some people are crazy, but as long as they arent mean and are entertaining I enjoy it

Thanks!! I am pretty proud of my picture...I never am able to get a good one driving in

At least he gave you and Tim entertainment on the ME ride over. Can't wait to read more.
I know!! I wonder if they are just wandering around MK unaware of other parks

From everything I've been reading on here, I am so excited to go during the Fall! It looks like so much fun!!

Wedding planning can be completely stressful, but it always works itself out, and the end product is truly wonderful! I hope you have a great time planning everything out!

Your ME ride sounds very entertaining! I think I would have busted out laughing, too! He seemed a little too grumpy to be heading to DW! haha

Congratulations on the engagement! Now the fun part of planning the wedding begins.

You know some people just need to feel the magic. Why start complaining as soon as you get on the bus? It's vacation for goodness sake. I guess the guy behind you really needed a sprinkling of pixie dust.

Do I dare tell this guy that my online check-in took longer than the people who were in the regular line?

Come on, dude. It's pretty much a law that you have to take pictures of the sign. You might not know this, but there's a pretty big castle in the Magic Kingdom, and we're gonna take pictures of that too.

I really want to do Christmas again at WDW...but I think fall has to be my favorite time of year there

So far it has been fun planning, but I am sure there were be plenty of stressful moments...thankfully Tim is patient

Thank you I am having lots of fun looking up all different wedding stuff!!

I know he needed a little pixie dust to get him in the right mood...maybe when he got to AKL he was ok

Yes that is the only time I will wake up early and am actually happy about it!!

I have a feeling he is the type of guy who says "we already have one picture of the castle, why take another"

Well after our fun adventures on the ME bus we pulled into POP! and Tim was the first one off the bus…I was second! I took my time with our bags and Tim went straight to the Online Check In line to get us all set…we were the first people in the line and no one was waiting there when we came into the lobby, just a few people in the regular check in line. I wish I could remember the name of the CM who helped us, because he was so sweet. He went out of his way to get us a room that was ready right then and one with a King bed…we were very excited and didn’t expect to have a room ready this early!

He gave me a carnation too and I was so excited!! Off we were to find our room…which sadly was one of the farthest rooms from most of the resort but that’s ok, we were so excited!! We were in the 90’s section…I made Tim take a picture of me with my flower and our room number



We dropped our carry on bags in the room and were very excited to see a very clean and nice room at our home away from home..ahhh arriving at Disney is awesome!!

Next stop DTD!! I was starving and ready to eat!! We brought a few Vinylmations with us as well, this was our first trip with trading Vinylmations and were excited to see if it lived up to our excitement!

We traded our Vinylmations for the very first time at the pin store thats at DTD...I dont remember each and every one we got during our trading...but there were some great ones we kept and some ones that we saw over and over again...I do know one thing for sure we were hooked on trading!!

I stopped along the way and took a picture of the Lego store...I was excited to see new Lego characters that were not there last time I visited



We ate at Pollo Campero and it was yummmmmy

I of course forgot to take pictures of the food...I got fried chicken with tortilla chips as my side and Tim got chicken strips and I cannot for the life of me remember what he had for his side. They had tons of dipping sauces and a salsa bar (I LOVEEEEE to try different sauces its weird but Tim understands )

After we ate our lunch we walked over to D Street to check out more Vinylmations!

Cool big pumpkin at DTD



After checking out awesome D Street we took a bus back to POP! When we arrived back to our room our luggage was there! I was very excited...Disney magic was hitting me already we had a room ready when we arrived and our bags were quick!!

I unpacked the signs my mom helped me make and hung them in our window






We started to get changed for MNSSHP and there was a knock at the door...

Who could it be?

Sounds like a great time at DTD. It only takes one trade to be hooked on Vinylmations, and D Street is a perfect spot.
I love your window decorations, especially your Mickey head border.

Can't wait to hear about MNSSHP.

Coming over from archdandy's PTR. I love engagement/disneymoon trip reports. Your signs are so cute!

I didn't know they gave out flowers! Is that normal at Pop (never been there)? Or just a random thing?

The Lego statues are probably my favorite thing about Downtown Disney.

I have no idea HOW I missed your first updates -- the ride on the ME bus. I have to tell you I was cracking up and rolling my eyes at the same time. I think the guy was full of himself and obviously had never been on the DIS to know all that we know.

I love that your room was ready for you when you arrived and you were able to head over to DTD. How sweet they gave you a flower.

Ok, I typed up a reply earlier and lost it when our internet went out, so let's try this again....

I love Pop, and actually we've stayed at the far reaches in the 90's on the third floor... Probably not a room I'd request, but it was actually kind of nice being all the way out there. It was preaceful at least. I'll always be a little less picky if they're going to put me in an available room right away.

DTD looks like it was fun. I still haven't bought any vinylmations, but that may be an investment I'll have to make in a couple of weeks.

I'm looking forward to the MNSSHP update and I have no idea who was at the door, so I'll go with the safest guess and say mousekeeping.

Woohoo! Two new updates! It's always the best feeling when you finally arrive in Disney! I'm sure if they could bottle that feeling they would make millions

How awesome that you got a flower when you arrived. It makes being in Disney that much sweeter

I can't wait to hear about the rest of you trip. It's always so exciting to read a trip report that has just started.
