Lovely locations! That will be just a perfect day! And we knew there had to be something Epcot related!

Sounds like things are coming together nicely. Can't wait to read more!

There was a guy handing them out. He had a little basket like at DTD.
Wow it was really dark when you got going this morning.
I love Kona for breakfast. Vinny not so much.
No you are not the only one to decide weeks in advance and then be torn of a menu choice.
Have you seen the décor for the rooms in GFV? Yuck!
Can I just say if the U.S. ever does allow gay marriages federally and not just in states I will have a recommitment ceremony here.

Great update and pics.

Aww reading about your site visit makes me all nostalgic lol Having a DFTW was the best decision we could have made. You picked some wonderful locations!

I'm all caught up, hooray!! Your banana joke made me laugh out loud, especially at Wingnut's parents' reaction, hahaha.

I really enjoy JetBlue! They have to be my favorite airline. I so wish they flew from Seattle to Orlando directly... buuuut they don't. If we flew them we'd have to do Seattle-New York (or Boston)-Orlando.. It'd end up being like 9 hours and 50 minutes or something wonky like that.

YAY FOR EPCOT! I can't wait to go back there! That will be our first park during our trip since we'll be a 5 minute walk from it. I do adore that park a lot.

Okay, the sticky toffee pudding is making me regret not getting an ADR there. We always do Raglan Road, one of these days we'll have to check out Rose & Crowne!

Your breakfast at Kona is making me so excited!! I am stuck between the Macadamia nut pancakes and the Tonga toast though... I've never had either but they both look so good!

Oh my gosh, those wedding sites look BEAUTIFUL! If I were to get married in Disney World, I would've totally chosen the same thing! How exciting that must have been to start to visualize it all! AHH!

Can't wait to read more!

Just came across your trip report! I think I'll vicariously live my wedding again through you! We were married at Sea Breeze Point and it was amazing! Good luck with your planning!

I think all of your choices are wonderful, it sounds like your wedding will be amazing!

Happy Holidays!
Haha yeah, it was definitely going to be an Epcot-area location for us!!!

Thank you!!

It looks like it's going to be really big! I'm interested to see what it looks like when it's all completed!

This all makes me want to drag my man back down the aisle and make him declare that he still loves me after all these years with a vow renewal!

Wishing you and Wingnut (ok, not Joe apparently!), planty, and Hoot a wonderful Holiday as well!!
Yes, it's the gazebo right before the bridge!

Hahaha awww a vow renewal sounds like a fun idea!

Thanks!!

Queue the hallelujah chorus. It was gorgeous. O.M.G.

Your venues for your service, reception, and dessert party are wonderful choices. What is the date again? (you know - in case I happen to be there at the same time and become an accidental lurker....). Cynthia and I saw a lovely reception set up near the cottages and the quiet pool at the BWV. We didn't stay around to see the guests come in, but the area looked beautiful and we got a sneak peek of the bride out near the boardwalk.

So there's a wedding mobile?

Fun update.
YES I remember you mentioning that before!! How lucky!!! Unfortunately, the doors were locked when we were there!

Thank you! The cottage area sounds like an awesome wedding spot!

Yes, there is!!!

So fun to be making Disney wedding plans! Thanks for letting us in on the behind-the-scenes preparation.

Oooooooh, how fun!!!
The new splash area is really cute, it's all Alice in Wonderland themed!

Thanks!!!

Some of our best pictures have all of the Boardwalk buildings as a background. So excited for you! We go back every year and take a picture there together.
You're making me even more excited about choosing SBP!!! That's so sweet that you take an annual picture there - what a wonderful idea!

And, it looks like day 1 of wedding plans ran smoothly! Always a plus.
Thanks!!! Yes, we are VERY excited about the dessert party!!

That's awesome, I wish I'd have seen that!

Yes, we left the room before the sun came up pretty much every day that week!

Hahaha yes, those menu decisions can be difficult!

I think that's a great plan!

Hahaha yeah, it's a fun trick!!!

Ugh that's annoying that they don't fly directly! That would be a lot of travel time!

I adore Epcot too...there really isn't much to dislike about it!

We love Raglan Road too, but Rose & Crown is great as well! You should definitely give it a try!

Ooooh they are both GREAT! It really comes down to how much of a sugar overload you want that morning!

Thank you!! It really was exciting!

Your wedding plans sound wonderful! I saw a wedding at Sea breeze point once, and it looked so romantic!

I also love the idea of an Illuminations dessert party, you will have some incredible wedding pictures!

Hooray for Hollywood (Studios)!

The four of us headed to the Grand Floridian’s bus stop, where we discovered something we’d never seen at any other bus stop before: Bus Tracking TV Screens!



(Fancy touch, GF!)

We set out with the idea of playing Bus Roulette, the first bus that arrives is the place we are going! Leave our future in the hands of the transportation CM’s! Go where the wind blows!

…except…meh. Let’s let that Animal Kingdom bus go by.

Hollywood Studios? Much better.

When we were at DFTW, we were given vouchers for Annual Passes, and so our first order of business when arriving at DHS was to exchange them for our first real AP’s! We stopped over at the ticket window, and were soon holding our AP’s (mine: Goofy; DF: Pluto, I think). I had also wanted to get a Tables in Wonderland card while we were there, but the line at Guest Services looked pretty long, so we figured we’d stop back there later.





We walked down Hollywood Blvd., all doing the polite “what do YOU want to do?” “I’m fine with whatever YOU want to do” exchange, before it was declared by someone that the Great Movie Ride was right in front of us, so why not?

There was actually a bit of a wait for the GMR (20 minutes-ish), so we were wound around the building in queues I hadn’t been in possibly ever.







But then soon we were in the usual winding movie theater queue room.





And then awaiting our tour through the movies! I noticed that we were queued up pretty close to the front of the room, and began to get hopeful that my parents would get to see the cowboy scene. I wasn’t positive though…

...until we started rolling straight through the gangster scene! Cowboys for us!











YES, I know, it doesn’t make a huge dramatic difference to the plotline, but it is a fun changeup when you usually only get the other scene.

We all know how the rest of the story goes.

"HALT."



"Tarzan??"











“Follow the yellow brick road…”



CONTINUED IN NEXT UPDATE
