Moral of the story: There's a good chance our crab will have a porcupine friend after our next trip.
I look at these things every trip. They are a bit expensive for my souvenir budget. I have seen a porcupine, and it definitely is cute.

While the report obviously stems from the trip, it really does turn into something so much more, especially when it spans a few months in its timeframe. You guys have been there with me through all of our headlines during the past few seasons: when I lost my job, got a new job, and most notably, when Wingnut, the love of my life, and I got engaged. I am so lucky to have this forum here on the Dis filled with absolutely wonderful people where we can laugh, cry, and (of course!) be absolutely obsessed over Disney together.
So true about DIStown.


So what’s next for us? That’s an easy answer: wedding planning!! And of COURSE there will be a TR for our October trip!
Happy planning!

Three weeks from yesterday begins our newest Disney adventure.

I love everything you bought! Your little crab is so cute! And the retro Epcot shirt is awesome! I think I'm going to have to get some type of Epcot shirt on my next trip, it's only right!

I can't wait to hear about your wedding plans and your October trip!

Well the Wedding Trip!!

Great souvenirs!!! We have a couple of the animals from Mexico -- always the little ones, but they are so neat, we can't resist them.

Thank you for sharing your trip with us! I have enjoyed it all and can't wait to tag along for wedding planning.

Great wrap-up! I am happy to report that I did successfully transport home a porcupine. I don't think they removed all the "spikes" but they did pack it well enough in a box that there was no problem. I love those animals. I read somewhere they've moved their "station" inside the pavilion instead of that little lobby area.

Totally agree with you on Epcot resorts but it is nice to check others out.

And agree with you on the great community within the DIS. It's very special.

Loved following along on your trip and looking to do the same with your wedding planning!

It's definitely not good-bye but see ya real soon - since it is so exciting to look forward to your October trip!!! How completely exciting!!! The DisBoards are such a great forum to share the excitement and even the trials of life. Glad that you shared it all with us.

Your list of new restaurants that you tried included some of my favorites as well. As for your resort preference - I completely agree about the Epcot area resorts. I love to be able to walk to 2 parks.

I'm looking forward to your October report and hearing all about the wedding!!

Just wanted to stop in so you know I didn't give up on this thread...work got super-busy, and then trip planning got super-busy. No time even for a PTR of my own. I have been trying to keep up with your adventures. Your pictures and comments always bring a smile to my face (you even make the not-so-great parts seem good). So, some thoughts...

OMG!!!! You're engaged!!! Whoo-hoo!!!! So happy for you both. And you're having a Disney Wedding and Disney-moon!!!! So awesome! We'll be there in October, too, but towards the end of October...is there a chance we may bump into you at the parks?

Honestly, I don't know if I'm happier about your engagement, or that you finally got your Beaker hat DH and I now have the whole collection...Beaker, Animal, and Kermit. We haven't really gotten the chance to wear the new ones much, though, and I doubt October in Florida will be a good time

Can't wait to hear about your October trip and all your wedding plans. F&W 2012!!!

I'm sorry that this TR has to come to a close, but I'm very happy that the next one is right around the corner!

You guys did great with the souvenirs, and I'm surprised how many of the treats made it home for the photo. We always bring home rice crispy treats with the plan of eating them over the next few weeks, and they are always gone the next day!
