Alex and Sarah's Disneymoon Summer 2013
I have been reading loads of the trip reports on this site, and I have wanted to do ours for soooooo long...and even now cant really do any of it...so I thought I would start with this pre-trip report malarky and would go from there.
So firstly introductions!!!
Me - Sarah - 24 - a teacher from the UK!
I love Disney...I went 5 times between the ages of 7 and 16. It literally has always been my favourite place on earth. I get married to the best guy in the world on 27th July and we fly to Disney on the 29th July. We have been together since we were 15/16!
DH (to be) - Alex - 23 - some computer things (also UK)!
Now where do I begin! At the beginning stages (in fact for about the first 7 years of our relationship) he detested everything Disney! He didnt believe in the magic (and still kinda says it doesnt exist) and thought it was somewhere that really would be quite awful, and stupidly overpriced. He knew that I would always want to return and he eventually relented, telling me we could go one year after being married. Jokingly I suggested we should go for honeymoon to save money and well he agreed. I was a bit shocked and didnt believe him. But anyway he wasnt lying...we booked it a couple of weeks later and we are going! To be honest he is stupidly excited now...he chose our hotel and said we had to have a few non Disney day/parks of any kind days. I was happy to oblige as it meant I get to go again.
Now onto the trip! Im going to list what we have planned for each day, along with our dining reservations! I am sorry if your bored reading now!
So we fly on the 29th July leaving Manchester Airport and arriving in Orlando International, flying with Virgin Atlantic. We are staying at Animal Kingdom Lodge (his choice, which I am happy with as I have stayed there before and it just so happened to be my first choice aswell) Yay! We are on the Disney Dining Plan as it was included for free in the price.
So here's what we have planned!
Monday 29th - Get settled in the AKL and have a wonder and hopefully a swim, hoping jet lag doesnt get the best of us!
Tuesday 30th - MK
Breakfast - Boma
Dinner - Be Our Guest
Wednesday 31st - AK
Breakfast - Tusker House
Dinner - Jikos
Thursday 1st - Blizzard Beach
Dinner - Whispering Canyon
Friday 2nd - Free Day (Alex has chosen shopping for this day)!
Breakfast - Chef Mickey’s
Saturday 3rd - Universal Studios
Sunday 4th - Seaworld
Monday 5th August - HS
Dinner - Sci-Fi Dine-In
Tuesday 6th - Epcot
Wednesday 7th - Typhoon Lagoon
Breakfast - Boma
Dinner - Yachtsman Steakhouse
Thursday 8th - Free Day (Alex has decided that despite wanting to stay away from Disney he would like to explore the different hotels on this day )
Dinner - Portobello
Also have booked to see La Nouba on this day!
Friday 9th - Discovery Cove
Saturday 10th - IoA
Sunday 11th August - Magic Kingdom
Breakfast - Crystal Palace
Monday 12th August - Fly Home
So these are our current plans! Have lots I still need to do and get booked! But we are excited! (Alex mostly about the flight, food and hotel...but hey ho...watch this space to see an adult man turned into a Disney convert)!

Hi Sarah. First of all congrats to you and hubby to be. Your trip looks fab! Discovery cove cool! Animal Kingdom cool! BOG cool. Honeymoon at Disney cool! Me and DW are also from UK ( well we are civil partners but hopefully with law changes pending DW one day! ) I am Paula 41 and DW Jo 45. We leave for Animal Kingdom Kidani Village on Sunday so we are very excited! Flying from Gatwick as we live in Essex,
Anyway love your plans. You will have an amazing time. DH will be hooked! I dragged DW along 15 years ago she wasn't that keen. We have been at least once a year ever since bought DVC and now don't really holiday anywhere else!
