Smile "I'm Doing That Again... and AGAIN!" - A May/June 2013 TR

The evening star is shining bright, so make a wish and hold on tight.

There's magic in the air tonight, and anything can happen...

Oh and HI, HI, HELLO and and and

Sorry, I didn't see you there at first. I was just... singing... to myself. No reason. It's okay, I've composed myself and now I'm ready to go!

Go where, you ask?!

I'm Doing That Again... and AGAIN! - A May/June 2013 Trip Report

This was technically a solo trip, seeing as how I was the only one in my immediate travel party. Does that mean I spent all my time by myself?


Let's not get ahead of ourselves, though. You may know me as the writer of a couple of other trip reports, titled:

You Guys Are Cast Members... Right? - A December 2011 Trip Report


Oh, Just A Few GALLONS of Pixie Dust! - A July/August 2012 Trip Report

OR, you may not know me at all! If that is the case, allow me to introduce myself.


Hey yall! I'm Marissa! I'm a 24-year-old Disney freak. That's basically the way I describe myself, and truth be told, there's really no need to say much more! This IS a Disney Trip Report, after all!

I was raised on Disney and have been a die-hard fan for my entire life. (Yeah, I was that kid who refused to watch Anastasia and Thumbelina because they weren't Disney. Seriously.) My lifelong dream (literally) was to go to Disney World, but it just wasn't in our budget for a really long time. I FINALLY got to go for the first time almost exactly three years ago when I was 21, and I've been trying to make up for lost time ever since! This trip was my fifth.

I don't consider myself a shy person at all, but when I'm at Disney, I'm even more outgoing than usual. Basically when I set foot on property, I'm rarin' to go and nothing is stopping me until I leave property again. If you've read either of my past TR's, you know that I live by the 'NO SHAME' lifestyle. That pretty much means that it takes something truly horrifying to embarrass me. There will be plenty of 'NO SHAME' moments to come! Yall just wait.

This trip report will also introduce a new motto: You can never have too much of the good stuff! No, I'm not referring to food and yes, it is related to the title. I definitely lived by that motto on this trip!

Since I'm really the only person I have to introduce, (the guest appearances are surprises!) I thought I'd do everyone's favorite list of Disney favorites! My list of Disney favorites is EXTENSIVE, so I'm going to TRY to limit each answer! Otherwise, you might end up thinking that everything Disney is my favorite. (That's not far from the truth, really.)

Favorite Disney Park: Magic Kingdom

Favorite Resort I've Already Stayed At: Bay Lake Tower

Dream Resorts: The Grand Floridian, Animal Kingdom Lodge, and Beach Club

Favorite Disney Rides: Splash Mountain, Toy Story Mania, and
Under the Sea ~ Journey of the Little Mermaid

Favorite Disney Movies: The Little Mermaid and Mary Poppins

Favorite Pixar Movies: Toy Story (um, okay... all of them), A Bug's Life, and Ratatouille

Favorite Princesses and Princes: Ariel and Eric, and Rapunzel and Eugene

Other Favorite Characters: Piglet, Dumbo, Meeko, Flounder, and Donald Duck

I'm so excited to share this trip with yall! It involved two Disney resort stays, plenty of other resort visits, pixie dust, characters, food, and some fun DIS hangouts. It was a different kind of trip, but such a blast! I can't wait to relive it!

Please let me know if you're reading, I would love to hear from my current DIS friends and hopefully make some new ones as well! Honestly, this isn't just about
me sharing my trip with you. I also want you to feel free to share with me as much as you want!

So now I just have one question...
