Adventures in DisneyPlanning - ChrisParker's first PTR

Helllooooooooooo...

Adventures will ensue...car theivery, tab-spiking and hanging from tall buildings will hopefully not.

Two trips are being planned... a honeymoon for me and DH to B (He prefers DF for Dear Fiance...whatevs) and a FAMILYMOON for Me, DH + 4 kids.

My happy is so exploding at the thought of getting married in 115 days to the most wonderfulest man alive, and at the thought of the two best trips ever, that I have no choice now but to begin a PTR.

Briefly, here are the key players.



This is one of my fav pictures of us, taken in Manchester last year on a Coronation Street tour. (I LOVE Corrie. Alright, luv?)

And here is one of the fab four. Two are mine and two are his. They get on like a house on fire. But thankfully have thus far not actually SET the house on fire. It's early days.



More to come soon but here are the bare bones deets -

Wedding - August 4
Poly CL - August 5 - 12 - Adventures in Honeymooning
AOA Free Dining (upgraded) - Adventures in Familymooning!

and one more just to be silly...

Hello again...not sure if anyone is reading this but we'll see how we go along.

The inspiration for the trips has come from the fact that we are getting married this summer (August 4th to be exact). Initially I looked at a wedding at the Poly but we decided that we wanted to have our families around and they wouldn't likely want to come to Disneyworld...most of my family think I am insane for my WDW love-affair, but that's another story.

So we decided to have a small wedding here and then go away. First it was one trip, and then we decided that we couldn't not have a honeymoon, and we couldn't not take the kids away, so now we are going on two! It only makes sense, really. It's a big financial decision but one we felt was worthwhile - this summer is all about celebrating that the 6 of us are a family.



The story of DF and I starts in Grade 9 when he sat in front of me the first day in History class and I threw his shoe out the 3rd floor window. He fell in love with me and has been ever since. We were great friends and roomies in University...then I went off to live in Italy and he married and Italian...yadda yadda yadda, here we are with four beautiful kids and the love story of our lives.

DF has never been to WDW and is dead excited - watching loads of videos, looking at the pics on the DIS and we've even watched WISHES on Youtube in the dark a few times.

To give you an idea of his lovliness... here is what I found in the window of our favourite coffeeshop a few months ago... stay tuned to the next post, by which time hopefully Photobucket will have uploaded.

Thanks for reading!

As promised...



It was so lush! I said yes. We'd already started making plans together but it was such a lovely gesture.

Thanks! He is quite lovely. Now I will have to remember how to post photos and do some more PTR stuff. Last minute wedding details are doing my head in at the moment!
