Newlyweds Living the Fantasy Trip Report

Newlyweds Living the Fantasy
October 5th - 14th, 2012
Pre-cruise stay at The Hyatt Regency Orlando
Daytona Blues Festival
Eastern Caribbean Cruise aboard Disneyís Fantasy
Post-cruise stay at Disneyís Beach Club Villa
Food & Wine Festival
Cirque du Soleil, La Nouba


Warning:The content of this trip report may include heavy sarcasm, random side notes, spousal mockery, analytical view points, excessive use of smilies, useless rambling, useful rambling and extensive explanation of major as well as VERY minor details of said trip. Read at your own risk.


Itís finally that time... itís time to start our LIVE trip report! So glad to be sharing it with all of you. For those of you who havenít been onboard... see I already went and did it. I used an expected cruise pun that I promised myself I wouldnít ever do. Missed that vow to myself when naming the pre trip report! I digress. If you havenít read our PTR and would like some intense background including where we live, where we work & photos of us, our dogs, our friends, among other things that freak out my paranoid hubby to have on the Internet, head on over to Newlyweds Living the FANTASY: 7 day Eastern PTR.

I gotta say, that didnít do it for me. Itís not to say that I have doubts of my newfound DIS friends, but I donít have the faith that you will indeed head on over to our PTR to read every waking detail of our life. Soooo... I will now force you to read, cause we all know DISers are not capable of skimming , a quick rundown of who we are.


Iím Lisa. Will be 27 on the 23rd of this month, NYer, watch my nephew full time, went to school for wedding planning, DVC member since I was 19 (bought as soon as I had an income), my 5th DCL cruise (10th total), been going to WDW since I was 3, once won a car, but was only 15 so I was disqualified, huge NY Met fan (sigh), shy with new people, life of the party with friends/fam, travel blog writer, sarcastic (unknowingly at times), anxiety issues (ask about my first snorkeling experience), have traveled to 42 US states, most of the caribbean, Ireland, Spain, Gibraltar, Portugal, Canada, Egypt, Israel (twice) & a layover in Germany. Also, you should know I have a serious obsession with cheeseburgers & ironing. I iron EVERYTHING.


My hubby Matt, 33 years old, works in building automation (see PTR for explanation), Jersey guy who gets offended at the mention of Jersey Shore, Yankee fan (boo!! hiss!!) , 1 prior cruise 17 years ago (remembers basically nothing of it), one trip to WDW before our wedding (I ainít marrying a guy who hasnít passed the WDW vaca test), has traveled to Canada, Antigua, Brazil & Puerto Rico, has a very silly side, VERY outgoing, adventurous, married his dream girl 5 months ago, does not at all mind wearing wrinkled clothes, also enjoys a good burger, drives a motorcycle, snacks just before meals and only makes one trip at buffets, therefore has a ginormous pyramid of food that at times can not be identified.

Together we have two dogs, my Yorkie, Rocky (who is a girl despite her name) she is 10 years old and still as feisty as ever. She weighs a whopping 4.5 lbs. And then thereís Bania, yes, itís from Seinfeld, also a girl despite the name, what can I say? We like to confuse people. Sheís 5 months old and already 40 lbs. Sheís an Olde English Bulldogge, which if youíve never heard of them, theyíre basically a Boxer & an English Bulldog put together. Much taller & healthier than the regular bulldog. The story of how Bania came into our lives can be found in our PTR, but in short, Matt has an awesome wife. Pics also on PTR.

As you should have picked up by now, Matt & I just got married May 5th. It was a dream wedding that we feel so unbelievably blessed to have had. Our wedding was featured in Style Me Pretty as well as it is about to be published in Westchester Magazineís 2013 wedding issue. We are blown away. All credit goes to our incredible photographers. If you would like to read the article & see some pics on Style Me Pretty head on over to
http://www.stylemepretty.com/2012/09...s-photography/. Thatís it. I vow to not mention our wedding again.

Now that the business side of this trip report is over, letís get to the real reason youíre all here... our Disney cruise!!!

We will be flying out Friday night after work & staying at the Hyatt at the airport. I will be posting a live trip report each day of the trip both here & on my travel blog. This will be my 4th live trip report so yes, I do know what Iím getting myself into. Itís a lot but itís my favorite part of the trip. If I wait until Iím home, it never gets finished.

So I hope you enjoy this trip report & make sure to say hello. Also, if you want any info while Iím onboard or at F&WF feel free to ask & Iíll do my best to find the answer, within reason.

Looking forward to the report! My husband and I met on a trip to Israel. I'm thinking if you've been there twice, you should maybe know how to spell it now though!

Oh, gosh. That's just the start of my typos. I've been spoiled by my Mac's auto correct & have become a sloppy typer, letting my mac do all the work. Auto correct left me hanging. Thanks for the heads up.

Let's go Mets!!!

I always vowed I'd never marry a Yankee fan... I wanted to be a double threat & marry a Red Sox fan. So yeah, he definitely is a great guy to have change this hardened baseball heart.

Thanks & welcome!

Thank you! So exciting for you guys! 15 years! ...we're at 5 months. I love reading trip reports from an adult only view. It's really different, so hopefully I can get you all the info possible.
