Hello fellow Texan! I just want to say I am very impressed with your planning!! I have been planning our trip since the day my daughter was born (Disney site even had our old address from when I was pregnant when I went to book) so my husband knew better than to even question when I said her 5th birthday is coming up, time for Disney! I am just glad I found the Disboards last week or I might have drove him crazy with everything Mickey

No words of advice since it is my first Disney "vacation" but I just wanted to say Howdy
(We are driving from SA - we must be crazy)

I can't tell you how many dream vacations I have made on the Disney site, but have never been able to book. Now, I am finally going, and I must say that I am sure it will be worth the wait. Being able to go for my first time with my children I think will make it all the more magical!

My trip is in less than 2 months now, so we are getting pretty close. I have been reading so many awesome trip reports to really familiarize myself with the parks and get myself even more hyped up as the trip draws near. It was in my browsing the DIS boards that I discovered you lovely folks over here at the Pre Trip Report forum! What fun, I had to be a part of this. Plus, Disney seems to be ALL I can talk about these days, and people here come looking for that, so how perfect for me to do a PTR as well, right!?!?!?!

Okay, so there's some trip background, lets jump right in! First off, going on this trip is my little family...


My hubbster, Chris, a handsome and hardworking Police Officer (you should see him in uniform ) and myself, Terri, a proud stay-at-home, soon to be home-schooling mom!


Our beautiful girls, Olivia, 4 & Maddie, 1


And my in-laws, Margo & Bob


The sis-in-law, Laci, a creative, wonderful, autistic woman J

Here are the deets of the trip-

Coming and Going: Tuesday, August 20th Wednesday, August 28th
We will fly from San Antonio, about a half hour from my home of Boerne, at 2:40pm, late, I know. But it is the ONLY non-stop of the day that is offered, and with a 1 year old, I def want a non-stop!! We originally planned to leave the following day, and are now leaving a day early just for this flight, as we did not want it to cut into our park time the following day!! We have booked the magical express! We plan to use Disney transportation while there.

Staying at: Art of Animation!
I cannot express how excited I am for my 4 year old to stay here! Her favorite Princess (and mine!!!) is Ariel, and we booked the standard Little Mermaid room! I know that staying at the value might not have as many perks, but after countless hours researching I have decided that it really is just PERFECT for us right now. My kids are young and will go nutso over the over the top theming! The place is brand new and looks very nice, and I love the characters that are featured here! I am so excited about leaving a day earlier than originally planned because we are now hoping to just tour our hotel, swim, and enjoy it our first night. One of my original fears is that we would be staying at this awesome place and we would not have time to explore it! We have A LOT planned! More on that later&

Park stuffs: Oh, the places we will go!
We are not doing any park hoppers this time. The kiddos are young and we hope to go at a slower pace so I think it will not be needed. We plan on doing 3 days at MK, 1 each at AK, HS, and EPCOT, as well as a day park hopping at UO & IOA.

Dining: DDP, for sure!
I am all about having as much of the trip paid for beforehand so the DDP was a simple decision for me! We will be partaking in some expensive character meals and I like that its already taken care of and I wont have any sticker shock. I know it may not have been a huge savings for our family, but the convenience is more than worth it to me! I am looking forward to our dining at Disney more than anything I think! We have made our ADRs (months ago), more on that later.

Other details: This and that
We have rented a stroller from kingdom, ours is GIANT and HEAVY and I am not about to travel with it!!! We will soon be placing a grocery order as well for some snacks, water, and room stuff as well. I have also pinterested my heart out&we have matching shirts, tinker belle gifts, welcome gifts and more!! You will also have to wait for a later post for more on those fun bits of pixie dust!

Well, I think that is a good start! I hope youll come back for more on my first ever Disney planning journey! Please leave me tips! Its my first time!!!!

The Daily Grind!

Sounds like its going to be a great trip! :-). A ton of my favorite ADR!

Are you taking advantage of the Magical Express luggage service? That is so awesome! It is such a pleasure to just get off the plane and make your way down to the MagicalExpress without bags in tow.

I have to tell you....I cried my first time on the M.E.....yes, I am that much of a dork. I was just so happy to be there and the welcome video they play is just so fun!
Flight leaves SAT 2:40pm and will be 6:20pm in Orlando when we land, its a 2hr 45 min flight. We are 1 hour behind them in Texas! And YES! taking advantage of the luggage services. I HATE lugging luggage around! I plan to pack the welcome gifts and some necessities including my swim suit in my carry on because we will probably use those right away. The rest can wait! And I expect some tears on the ME as well!! I am not a crier....I hate it, never done it UNTIL I had my kids, something changed in my hormones and now I cry about EVERYTHING! No joke....simple sitcoms bring me to tears. I KNOW with absolute certainty that that darn video will summon rivers from my eyes and I am not looking forward to it! Hahaha!

I started reading the FRUMP! And I saw her meal at Pizzafari and I WANT IT NOW! That pizza and salad look so delicious and AC is a great bonus! Thanks for all your other suggestions as well. So many yummy places to eat and not enough time....this is my biggest dilemma!

Can I make a suggestion here too...take the bus from AoA to MK, then a boat over to Ft Wilderness. If you take a bus, it lets you off at the opposite end of the campground and you have to take another internal bus to Pioneer Hall. The boat drops you off right near the Hall. And it is a gorgeous ride over. You get to see the Contemporary from a great angle and sneak a peak at the gorgeous Wilderness Lodge.
What an aweomeeee suggestion!! I may have to do this!

Yay! I am so happy to hear this. It looks delicious and I want a nice view on our last night, so I am glad you enjoy it so much! And sorry to keep you up! Go to bed! Read tomorrow!!

Recommendations for MK quick service.... Columbia Harbour House or Pecos Bill's - those are our favourites.

Recommendations for AK quick service..... we love Yak n Yeti, but I also know that a lot of people recommend Flame Tree BBQ.

I hope you love Biergarten as much as we do. We went there twice on our last trip. My MIL is German and my kids have totally embraced the German culture so they thought it was so much fun! I'm sure your girls will love the dancing!
Eeeee! Thanks! I am glad y'all like my shirts. All 7 of us will be wearing them! Thanks for all your recommendations, and I am quite certain the German food will hit the spot!

HOWDY! Ohhh! SA!! You are my neighbor!!!

No driving is not crazy!!! I would totally do that over flying any day, even with my young ones!!! The only issue I have is that the hubby gets a limited number of days off and I just can't use those extra days of travel when I could be in the parks. But one day I will totally road trip it!

OOoh - loving the start to your PTR!!! Yup - I am convinced, you've found the right place to let out your inner Disney child.

First of all - I didn't quote your first post - but your family is adorable! Your girls are just precious - and seeing them brings back so many wonderful memories for me. I have 2 girls (15 & 14) - but they will forever be little to me... I am at the stage in their lives where I feel like time is going too quickly and I am trying to squeeze as much into these last few years of having them home that I can.

For those who enjoy very frequent updates, you can expect a lot, quickly. I am close to my trip and very super crazy excited, so #1- I am running low on time, and #2- it's all I think about and this is an ahhh-mazing outlet.

Okay, so here is what the day to day is looking like!!! I cant wait to get feedback on this!

Tue. Aug 20th Travel Day!



We will be finishing packing and trying to keep ourselves busy this morning so that time will hopefully not stand still! We can leave for the airport about 12:45pm, and the plane leaves about 2:40pm!! Non-stop to Orlando baby! Then we will catch the Magical Express to our lovely resort. I am hoping that everyone can have a grand time looking around while I secretly go to the room and set up the welcome gifts for the girls! We are just hanging around this evening, so pictures, swimming and excitement will ensue! If we have time and all feel up to it, perhaps DTD....that is really a possibility for any day. Dinner will be OOT and most likely at the hotel or DTD.

[Sidenote: I have been to Orlando on a work related trip once, while there we went to DTD every single day, and it was my first taste of the Magic!! I LOOOOVE it at DTD and will make sure to go multiple times this trip as well! Sadly, we did not visit any Disney parks or stay at a Disney Resort, but we did go to Universal IOA, more on that later....]

We will be wearing these fun guys today:




Wed. Aug 21st Magic Kingdom!



Because really where else should you start your FIRST EVER Disney World vacation, right?!?!?!?! No ADRs today, because we originally had planned to get here midday, before we booked the extra night, so we will most likely pay OOP for lunch, and do a QS credit for dinner somewhere, any suggestions in MK???? Please! We will take our time exploring and learning our way around, no need to rush, we're coming back here 2 more times! Yay!

This was to be the day we wore our Plane shirts, but now we will be wearing these lovely shirts I picked up at Old Navy! (The girls is hard to see, but its a patriotic looking Minnie Mouse! Adorbs!)



It looks like this is the only day we over lap parks... We never do hoppers either - and we like it that way. Some people swear by them, but I have never justified the cost - as long as you do your research (which it looks like you have) - you will be fine.

From here on out we are getting up EARLY and catching the bus to be at the parks BEFORE they open!! None of our days planned have EMHs in the am on purpose- I want to avoid those parks and not have to get up even earlier. But I am a stickler for being on time, and my family knows it. So I can confidently say we will be watching rope drop and dashing to Toy Story Mania! We have lunch ADRs for 50s PRIME TIME CAF… today! I am so excited for this! I picked it because of the big portions, and fun environment, and I cannot wait! We will hang out and try to do all we can until we are ready to leave this day, if we can hang in there maybe see the fireworks show, or possibly end up at DTD, or go back and swim.

We will be sporting these fine works of art! (My fave!)

I am just lovin' all of these shirts!!! Too cute!!! I would love to make something like this - gonna have to follow your link to see if it's even something I can do? I don't usually do well with glitter...

Again, there for rope drop and no plan really, except working around seeing The Lion King show and Nemo. I am sure we can fit in our must dos here, because there are only a few. Also, no ADRs in the park, so suggestions on a good QS lunch would be helpful! Since the park closes early at 5, we have booked a fun treat and will be heading to the Ft Wilderness campgrounds to see the HOOP DE DOO MUSICAL REVUE! I know our family will love this!! And all you can eat plus free wine or sangria and beer = happy adults as well!!

Our outfits for the day: (adults dont have the bow, just the ribbon across)

We love to eat at Flame Tree BBQ in AK... Huge portions - good food - watch out for the birds though...

Oh and you cannot forget the Jalepeno cream cheese pretzel... It's at a little cart right before you walk over the bridge to Dinoland from Tree of Life... Nummay!!!

Yay! This is THE day, the PRINCESS day, to be exact!!!!!! We will have some major fun today, we have an afternoon appt at the BBB booked for Olivia! She already knows because I am too excited. We have watched youtube videos, looked at pictures and everything! We are going to do the whole hair/nails/makeup package and add on the dress. No big package, because that comes with photos and we will already get them for free with the PHOTOPASS+ that I am pre-ordering! We are going all out this trip because it is our first, and I KNOW Olivia will never forget this day. Late that evening we have dinner in the Castle with Cinderella, again, a moment she will never forget. Lunch will be QS, and I am hoping maybe Be Our Guest, one or more days we will dine QS there because I couldn't get a dinner ADR, but that's okay because their menu looks a little fancy, and I am more simple kinda foods anyhow!

Olivia will be sporting a Minnie shirt she owns for the first part of her day until she gets her gown. Maddie will be wearing this minus the sleeves that I cut off because it will be hot y'all!!



The rest of us will be wearing various Disney shirts we already own.
This is going to be an awesome day!!!! What fun memories you are going to make!

Again, rope drop, spend the morning in Future World, and then QS for lunch, I was originally thinking I would HAVE TO go to a World Showcase country for a meal, because why would I ever pass up awesome worldly cuisines, then I saw the Sunshine Seasons QS&.that is looking goooooood. What do y'all think? So we will just browse and decide I think. Possibly go back to the resort for naps today because I REAAAAAALLY want to see the World Showcase at night, and stay late for the fireworks show! Our dinner ADRs are at the BIERGARTEN! I am so excited, the hubby is from German decent and we celebrate German heritage A LOT in the Texas hill country, so this will be fun and the kids will love dancing to the Ooompa music. Plus, who doesnt love a buffet!?!?

Shirts for the day:

I don't have any opinions on Sunshine Seasons, other than, every time we go off to Soarin' - their food smells delicious! LOL We haven't ever eaten there though.

We have also never eaten at Biergarten, but we do have our first ADR there this time -a nd we are all looking forward to it.

I have been to IOA before on a work trip, as I mentioned earlier, but I am obsessed with Harry Potter; so I will be going again. Plus Olivia loves HP too, so she has to experience this. We were originally only going to do IOA to save $$ and our feet until we saw the newly finished Simpsons World. We are now doing both. Haha, mine is a family that religiously watches the Simpsons on Sunday nights and we simply cannot miss this chance to be in Springfield and have a drink at Moes! Plus there are fun things we liked at both anyway. I plan on buying the tickets through DESTINATIONS IN FLORIDA, because they sale the one day tickets that include shuttle transport from Disney to Universal and back. No meal credits will be used today, we will dine at those parks and pay OOP to eat at THE THREE BROOMSTICKS for sure, and possibly somewhere on the City Walk that night. (Margaritaville!?!? Because I am SURE I will NEED one by then!!) Also important to mention that this is a VERY special day, because it is MY BIRTHDAY!!! Yay! So I will be living it up buying myself many presents I am sure. I plan to sport my birthday button the whole week at Disney though, because why not? I am going to live every minute up celebrating Disney style!

Our attire:

YAY!!! Not only is it your first trip - but you will spend your birthday in FL!!! How perfect is that???

Because where else would I want to end my last day of my first ever trip to Disney!! {Sigh} Our last day at the parks, how sad. But we wont let it get us down because this is our Pirate day!!! We have super early ADRs at CHEF MICKEY to say goodbye to the beloved characters. Lots of photos, and going back to our faves. I have mid-morning appts for Olivia and my sis-in-law (who is more like a teenager or tween) at the PIRATES LEAGUE. After the makeovers we can relax, and possibly go back to the resort for a rest. Again, QS suggestions for today would be appreciated. We will be at the park late to see the fireworks and go to our ADR for the TOMORROWLAND TERRACE FIREWORKS DESSERT PARTY. What a perfect way to end our time in Disney, right? I want my last Disney moments to be in MK looking up at the beautiful fireworks and wishing upon a star....all while pigging out and going into a sugar coma to dull the pain of leaving!

The awesome shirts:

Awww... What a perfect end to your trip!

I am the same way... We always go to MK first and we always make it our last park - so we are always sure to say "hello" and "goodbye"... Sniff, sniff.

Back to Texas, y'all...and into Disney depression. I will never again have a first trip to Disney World. {Tear} We will need to leave the resort about 11am to catch the Magical Express back to MCO for our flight back home to Texas. A sad, sad day indeed. But heres hoping for an awesome bounce back offer this day to perk me up. I am planning on taking 'down payment' cash, just in case. Do people do that?!

Well - the first thing you need to do is get yourself a little notebook or something, so you can take notes during your trip - in preperation for your TR that you'll be writing when you get home... that will help out a lot.

Secondly - you'll have to book your next trip before your finish writing above said TR... That helps even more.

Welcome to the Disney addiction...

Thanks for all the kind words and advice! BTW- non of these shirts have glitter!! I do not do well working with glitter, even though I love to be sparkly!! Most of them are just black t-shirt paint from the craft store. It works just like acrylic paint. I cut stencils out of wax paper, then you can iron the wax paper onto shirts and it holds! Then you use a sponge brush to dab on the paint. Let dry slightly and peel away the wax stencil!! They look like screen print tshirts in person! I love them, hardest part is cutting small details, like on the plane shirts for instance. The Toy Story ones, however, were super easy because they were just straight silhouettes! I just googled images of characters I wanted and traced the outline and cut out! Anyone would do it! My other forms of shirts are iron on's-super easy, and spraying bleach over a stencil!

Dun, dun, dun, dunnnn, dun dun dun dun dun dun dunnnnnn.... (Death march, lol)

I have awful news. Just awful. I am torn up about it and need your support.

The Tomorrowland Terrace Fireworks Dessert Party IS SOLD OUT! {SOB}

I actually had my spot all set to go a couple days ago, like literally 2, and I had to hold off to today to do them for financial reasons. Well, they were gone! I tried ALL 3 DAYS that we will be in MK...all gone.

I should have known better. I know, I know, I know. Makes me sick. My only hope is at the 45 day mark that someone will have to cancel their trip and their ADR.....so get out your prayer mats people and send up good thoughts to Ole' Walt that I end up with a miracle and get my wish.

I really wanted to end my trip like this, and it was literally the only detail that could have gone wrong and that wasn't already taken care of. So naturally.... but I am trying to keep my spirits high. I will continue to check the web EVERYDAY for a spot and be sure to mark 45 days away in my phone. Here's hoping.

In the meantime, is there any other super special, amazingly awesome, spot for fireworks viewing in MK? Let me have it y'all!

Update coming SOON, possibly tonight. I am working on it!

Oh no....I assumed you already had the dessert party Yeah, they sell out FAST. I honestly am surprised there was any openings a couple days ago.

Well, there are lots of other options....you guys could come over to the Poly and watch Wishes from the beach. They pipe the music in so you still hear the narrative.

And like you said, there's always hope that someone will cancel. I've even heard that it is possible to walk up that night and grab a no-show spot. You never know!
