E-Shoot Sneak Peek!

Hi, everyone! Things have finally settled down since we got back from WDW and I promise I'll get started on the TR soon BUT...I have the sneak peak from our engagement shoot! We had a GREAT time with Regina and she is just fantastic at what she does. More about that in the TR! A few of you may have already seen the sneak peek on Facebook but, for those of you who haven't, may I present my favorite photos of Ryan and I ever!



I just LOVELOVELOVE what we've seen so far. I feel like Regina totally read my mind because she went straight to all of the spots I was thinking of and even found more that hadn't occurred to me. So, I hope everyone likes the e-pics and I'll be back with the TR soon! Much love!

We Have A Date!!! and some other stuff

Ok, so it took me even longer to get to this TR than I thought it would but I’m finally starting! Before I get to the trip we have our biggest news yet. This week has been a VERY eventful week when it comes to the wedding. Here are the 3 big things that have been going on:

1. My dress shopping trip is this weekend! So, we’ve been busy making plans
for everyone traveling here for the occasion. We’ve organized a few fun
surprises like a limo to take us all to Miami and 3 dozen French macarons to
have in our suites after the dress shopping! I’m also on a diet consisting of a
whooooole lot of water, protein shakes, and protein bars. Not so much to
lose a ton of weight by this weekend or anything but just so I feel good
trying on dresses. I made a pinterest page of all the dresses that each salon
may carry so that I can bring the iPad and show them what I’m thinking. You
can check that our here if you're interested:
http://pinterest.com/tinydancr06/dress-shopping/

I like to be over prepared for this kind of thing. Hopefully we find THE dress!

2. Yesterday, Regina emailed us the link to the rest of our engagement photos
and, of course, we love them! I’ll post our favorites in the e-shoot part of the
trip report. Regina is also making us a slide show so we have to decide on a
song for that. We’re both musicians so we have to think hard about the
song! Now that we have all the e-photos we have to really get rolling on the
save the dates. Does anyone have any suggestions in when would be best to
send the STDs out? We don’t want to do it too too soon but we do want to
give everyone enough time to make plans and/or save money if needed.

3. FINALLY: WE GOT OUR DATE! LIKE, OFFICIALLY! Diane called Monday and
we got our first choices for both time AND date! We will be getting married at
5pm in the Wedding Pavilion with our cocktail our in Whitehall and our
reception in Salon 6 of the GF! I am SO relieved and a bit surprised to have
gotten everything we wanted. I think Diane, our consultant, was smart to
basically have us prepare for the worst and have a couple backup plans. We
would have been happy with our second choices as well and now we were
just surprised and happy to have received our ideal date! Once you have
your date, though, everything happens very quickly. We are already working
on getting our LOA written up and figuring out our room block. I will probably
have to do a whole other post about that freakin room block! But, seriously,
we are so excited to officially be in the real planning stage. Lots to do!

Ok, so now that you’re all caught up I can get to the TR!

MNSSHP TR Day One - MNSSHP

The first day of the trip was Friday and both Ryan and I had to work so after we both got out we got on the road. We got off to a bit of a late start and I’m like a little kid when it comes to WDW so I was NOT a happy camper! We also had a big accident like one exit before Disney that had us sitting in one spot for an HOUR! Ugh! Anyway, we did finally make it to the Magic Kingdom just in time for the official party time. We parked in Captain Hook I believe and both got into our costumes right there in the parking lot. Of course we were alllll the way in the last spot so it was interesting changing with a parking cast member right there!

Once we were ready in our Woody and Bo Peep costumes we hopped the tram and headed to the TTC to meet our friend Jay (Buzz Lightyear for the night). From there we took the monorail over to Manstreet. There’s just something about the monorail. It is IMPOSSIBLE for me to be in a bad mood when on the monorail so from then on I was much less stressed! We met the rest of our group on Mainstreet and staked out a spot to watch the parade. While we waited we took our traditional pictures.



The toys are all here!



Ryan and I aka Woody and Bo Peep. We got lots of compliments from cast members for not coming as Woody and Jesse. They said most couples usually do that even though Bo Peep was the only one “romantically involved” with Woody! So funny!



Courtney (MOH/Little Green Mman) and I



Woody and Jesse (Rachel, another bridesmaid!)



And of course you always need to see a bit of the MK Halloween decorations!

After watching the parade, which is always one of our favorite parts, we grabbed some dinner at Cosmic Rays and then got down to the most important parts of the night: candy and rides! All night the candy was great and the cast members weren’t stingy. I will say, though, there were WAY to many Peanut Chews given out! We all made a pile at the end of the night and the amount of Peanut Chews was absolutely insane. No one even liked them! Anywaaaaay…

We hit most of the big rides and nothing had a line longer than 15 to 20 minutes. Other than Haunted Mansion, which is of course the most Halloween appropriate ride, my favorite ride of the night was Big Thunder. It had been closed for refurb the last 2 times I had been to MK and it is just SO much fun to ride at night and in costume! Ryan had fun being Woody on the wildest ride in the wilderness, too!

Throughout the night we tried to get pictures with as many Toy Story characters as possible.



Woody, Jess, and Bullseye!



Jesse and Jesse.



Little Green Man and Little Green (Wo)Man.



Everyone with the real Buzz! He loved our costumes and made a big deal out of us. He even nonverbally complimented our Buzz on his costume!



Aaaand, finally, everyone with Woody and Jesse. This was taken during one of the dance parties inside Golden Horseshoe and Woody and Jesse would NOT stop dancing to take this picture. Kind of awkward but funny!

Some other highlights of the night: I was actually able to get the MNSSHP pins! Every other year I’ve been I haven’t been able to find any of the party pins while in MK. This year I found most of them! I guess it was because this was the earliest party we’ve attended (October 5th).
Another highlight was seeing a grown man dressed as Russell from UP! It was so cute I wish I had a picture but I didn’t want to be a creeper! I did tell him how much I loved his costume, though.

Overall, it was another amazing MNSSHP! By now from reading my PJ you probably know how much I look forward to the party every year and it never disappoints but it is absolutely best when you go in costume. And the group costumes are always fun because the cast members and other park guests always make a big deal out of you which just adds to the magic!





Up next, park hopping and Food & Wine!

Thanks so much for all your kind words! I am so glad the Summer House pics were helpful to someone. I had a feeling they might be since I hadn't seen many around. It really is a loooovely spot and will be beautiful for your reception!

Yay! Thank you! I'm lucky to have a group of friends silly enough to do this kind of stuff. They make it super fun
