An Anniversary Trip Full of Favorites-May 2012 PTR!*TR Link 5/14 & Question 5/15 p32*

Welcome everyone, to my May 2012 PTR!

I've been waiting for what seems like forever to finally be able to start talking about the planning of this trip, and now I can!

This trip is to celebrate the 2nd anniversary of my DH, Brandon, and I, and will take place from May 5-May 9! We were married on May 1, 2010 and went to-where else-DISNEY WORLD for our honeymoon that year!

As you can probably tell from the title, this trip is going to be all about our favorite Disney things! We love the fact that there is always something new and fun to do in Disney, which is why we keep coming back, but since this trip is so short, we're concentrating on the things we know we love! Favorite parks, favorite restaurants, those kinds of things!

So, before we get started with the planning, let me just tell you a little about my DH and I:

My name is Jen and I am obsessed with Disney!

(That is a picture from my wedding day with my lovely niece Caitlin!)

I've been to Disney World 10 times, between trips when I was younger with my family and trips I've taken with Brandon! I keep waiting for the day that I get bored with it, and am ready to go somewhere else, but you know what? It's not happening! I'd love to go to Disneyland in CA, and go on a Disney Cruise someday, and of course, there are other parts of the world I'd like to see, but right now, I LOVE going to Disney World! My favorite Disney movies right now are the Toy Story movies, I can't get enough of them! Although Alice in Wonderland is my all time favorite!

My DH of almost 2 years is Brandon, and he is not obsessed with Disney!

(That picture was taken last year, on a day trip to the NYC Disney Store)

He has been to Disney World 6 times, all of his trips were with me! He innocently agreed to a trip in 2008, I'm sure thinking it would be a one time thing, little did he know, we would keep going back year after year! He complains and says he doesn't want to keep going back, and after each trip, he says the next vacation we take will be a non-Disney trip...yet, if I ask in the right way, he will agree! With all the complaining he does, I know he loves Disney World, he has a lot of fun when we are there, especially in Epcot!

So please join me for the planning of what I'm sure is going to be one of our best trips yet! I can't wait to chat about all of the fun things that go into planning a Disney trip-where to stay, where to eat, itineraries, magic hours, crowd calendars-with my old DIS friends, and I'm hoping to make some new friends along the way too!

Up next...I will reveal our resort! If you want to take some guesses as to where we are staying, feel free! Just keep in mind...I'm a chronic resort changer! I've already changed resorts once, and it might not be the last time! Oh yes, and it's a secret from Brandon...he thinks we are staying somewhere totally different, and I will be surprising him when we arrive in Disney!

(Oh yes, one more thing-since this is an anniversary trip PTR, I thought it would be cute if I started each post with a Disney movie or song love quote, which is why the very beginning of this PTR starts with "A Dream is a Wish your Heart Makes"...it doesn't get anymore classic than that! )

I'm here! However, I don't think I can even manage a guess as to where you're staying. Not the Poly is all I got.

Looking forward to seeing your plans develop!

OK, I'm here.

I am going to guess AKL as your resort. I know you've had it booked for past trips, but have, um, changed it... But maybe not since you said you're focusing on favorites. So maybe an Epcot resort?
I *HEART* WALT DISNEY WORLD!! been there, done that, GOING BACK!

I'm glad you all are planning an anniversary trip! I'm going to guess that you all will stay at the same resort you stayed at on your honeymoon. I don't know which resort that was, but that's what I would want to do if we did an anniversary trip. Can't wait to hear more about it!

I'm going to guess that you are staying at the Boardwalk Inn.

You did a whole post about it in your last TR and I want to stay there on my next trip. You always seem to stay at the resort that I really want to try before me

I'm here! I love the idea of starting each installment with a bit of Disney romance...you're such a clever girl! And how fun to have a "favorites" themed trip to the World!

For your resort, I'm guessing it's where you stayed on your honeymoon....but I don't know which one it is!
