Red face Last trip ever? LET'S GO ALL OUT! July 2013!



HELLO. HOLA. BONJOUR.


Welcome to my very first PTR!! My name is Francesca, but you may call me Frankie
I’m from lovely sunny old England, which in my opinion is not so sunny and not so lovely. (Counting down the days until I can move to the USA!)
I’m 19 years old and am studying Marine Biology at University and I am super obsessed with Disney! It is a HUGE part of my life!

We used to travel to WDW every year when I was younger but for the last few trips it has been every other year. BUT the time has finally come and my parents have said that this trip is going to be the LAST trip until I have kids!! Therefore it needs to be the BEST TRIP EVER!

As it is going to be the last trip (don’t worry, I will still push for more) I begged to go full out! For the last two trips we have stayed in a friends villa off property (BOOOOOOO). Which as you may all know, IS NOT THE SAME! So after many persuasive talks from me we finally booked our 2013 trip!!

So this is how our trip looks:

16 nights at the POLY!!!
16th July – 1st Aug 2013
Free dining plan!
$400 Disney gift card!!


We booked the trip in June 2012 so I have been counting down for a LONG time! We are currently on 107 days to go! TIME IS FLYING!!

So come along with me for the ride and find out what happens when the British take over WDW!

Coming up! Meet the cast of this adventure!

Continued in next chapter!

Welcome back!

We are now down to 96 days!! DOUBLE DIGIT DANCE!

We hit 100 days on my birthday which was an amazing day!

I got some Disney related presents which I will post pictures of in the next update!

BUT NOWÖ..



The Cast

Francesca (me):



My name is Francesca. I have two nicknames, Chessie and Frankie. My family and friends from when I was younger call me Chessie, but when I went to secondary school I started getting called Frankie and it stuck! Iíll try and stick to one or the other so we donít all get confused.


Park: Magic Kingdom
Attraction: Tower of Terror
Show: Fantasmic
Table-Service Restaurant: Crystal Palace
Counter-Service Restaurant: Columbia Harbour House
Movie: Beauty and the Beast, Tangled, Wreck it Ralph, Lilo and Stitch
Character: Mickey Mouse, Stitch and Vanellope



Natalya:



This is Natalya, or as I call her, Tally. She is my 21 year old sister and one of my best friends. She really likes Disney too and is getting really excited for this trip. Iím sure she is a secret Disney lover and actually loves it more than she lets on.

Park: Epcot
Attraction: Toy Story Mania
Show: Festival of the Lion King
Table-Service Restaurant: Cinderellaís Royal Table
Counter-Service Restaurant: Pizza Planet
Movie: Cars
Character: Stitch



Jill:



This is my mum Jill. She is also a big Disney fan too and most of the time ends up sitting down watching Disney movies with me if I put them on the TV. She is the person who has to put up with me talking Disney 24/7, but she loves it really.


Martyn (right):



This is my dad Martyn. He does like Disney but isnít the worlds biggest fan. He isnít as hardcore as Tally, mum and I so likes to take the holiday at his own pace.



So now you know who youíre gonna see, time to see what we are getting up too!

Next upÖPLANS!

Continued in next update!

I love Crystal Palace breakfast, it's so perfect, suggestions for there - TRY EVERYTHING!

Be Our Guest - I am not a steak person at all, I actually have probably gotten steak at a restaurant under 10 times, but that's what I got here, IT WAS FANTASTIC. OMG. it comes with fries, that are like from heaven themselves & veggies, it was so good, I want it right now! OMG. & for dessert, I had the triple chocolate cupcake thing, I can't remember the exact name, but it was PERFECT.

50's Prime Time - MEATLOAF. it is delicious, & I got the S'mores for dessert, the whole meal was so much fun, I hope you get a fun "cousin"!

As for the rest of them, I haven't been to a few of those, so therefore cannot give my opinion on what is good, & the rest, basically everything is good,
