    Well this trip report is LONG over due! My sister got married at the best place on earth!!!!

    Please dont ask yourself whats the best place on earth, because we all know its
    Disney World!!!!!!!:woohoo:

    This trip was honestly a big deal, not only was my beautiful sister getting married, but my family was all coming in town for this event. So it was like a family reunion and wedding at the same time. But the most spectacular thing was that we were staying in a large room at the Grand Floridian for 5 nights. A dream of ours since we were very young!

    It was very special to my family and I, we absolutely LOVE DW!

    So enjoy this TR as I welcome my family and vacation onto your PC.


    DAY 1!
    So we left on Wednesday October 1st 2008.
    I had class that morning, so I went to class and then went home and we packed up the van with luggage and dresses and everything we can actually fit in this van.

    [​IMG]
    this is like 1/4 of what was packed into the van.

    moooooooore luggage!

    My pup Dixie Mae, shes an avid disney traveler. She also loves car rides!!!

    Last minute preparations to get on the road!

    Dixie is fun to play with!

    His favorite character is Goofy!

    My momma and Me, my mom loves disney as well, Id have to say her fav character is Mickey Mouse! ( maybe more than my father hahaha lol jk:rotfl: )
    I am on the phone checking on reservations for Yachtsmans Steak House at the Yacht Club for that night.
    Now if you dont know me, I am 23 years old, college student studying medicine to be a PA, physician asst. Id like to work in Cardiology. My favorite character is Daisy Duck(i like to think we are bff's lol lol:rotfl:)
    I am another lover of DW and I just convinced my boyfriend, Scott of 6 years that we must get married in Disney as well lol.
    Watch out for a Wedding Planning Journal to come lol.

    Soooo, hours later we arrived to The Grand Floridian and just about screamed when my father told the guard gate we are checking in. :scared1::banana::cool1:

    I like got off the van and did this --->:worship:

    We called this Dinner our final FOUR..Noone else had gotten to DW yet and we wanted a quiet dinner with just us 4 before all the chaos began!

    Our dinner was nice and quiet and relaxing, we laughed and talked all through out dinner. I give this restaurant 2 thumbs up!:thumbsup2:thumbsup2
    The steak is out of this world!
    We got some delicious alcholic beverages and we cheered to a fun spectacular week.
    Our waiter was very sweet and brought us a special dessert plate to congratulate my sister getting married.

    -LOL- No dixie mae had to stay at a different resort "the kennel" lol but we missed her at night lol. It would be cool if Disney had a resort where you can bring your fur babies! Thanks for reading! I hope you enjoy it.

    YAY I cant wait to post more, Enjoy!

    Thanks I was concerned no one would read it because my sister did a TR, BUT I was there more days because she left on her honeymoon so there is alot more to my TR :)! Thanks for reading!

    The GF is amazing, I hope you get to stay there again, I hope I get to stay there again. Honestly being at the GF is an experience like no other. Even if you can stay for 1 night, do it up. It makes the whole disney experience amazing.

    YAY glad you made it, hope you stay tuned.

    Thanks, shes the best little cuddle partner!
