What Up, Frump Fans? Hey everybody!! Welcome to my third trip report! My first trip report was "SUCK IT UP BUTTERCUP! It Builds Character and Strength!" A July 2011 TR!, followed by "I Don't Wanna Meet Mickey In a Frumpin' Poncho!" An August 2011 TR!. My current TR, which I am writing with Jess (PrincessJess508) is The Frumps Have Hit the Wall... And No One's Mad. "FART SHOES.", which is from our trip this past May. Whether you are new to my trip reports or have been with me since the beginning, this trip report is going to be like no other before! So sit back, relax, and pull up your own dang chair, as this Frump proudly presents: A Frump's TR: "Me Gusta Epic Mealtime! Stop Thinking My Thoughts: I'm Five." Before I let you Be My Guest, however, you probably want to know who the heck we are, right? Here we go! First up, me! (*Hint- I'm the one without the overalls) Hi there! I'm Kristen, I'm 17 years old, and I'll be your narrator for the next two weeks on our Safari! (Just kidding, this is a trip report, and you can bet that's it's going to take WAY longer than that for me to write!) I have been going to Disney World since I was six (and also two trips to Disneyland), and could not be more in love with the place. I love everything from the grandiose fireworks displays to the little details and Hidden Mickeys. I am particularly obsessed with Disney food, the Muppets, and the Monorail! I hope to do the Disney College Program in the Spring of 2015, so look out for Cast Member Kristen! I fall more in love with Disney by the day, and truly consider it to be like my second home. I love DISboards and sharing my trips with all of you, as well! You are all the reason that I am writing this now! So, without further ado, here are some of my Disney favorites! Park: Disney's Hollywood Studios Attraction: Haunted Mansion, Jungle Cruise, Toy Story Mania and Tower of Terror Show: The Magic, the Memories and You and Illuminations: Reflections of Earth Table-Service Restaurant: Hoop-De-Doo, 'Ohana and California Grill Counter-Service Restaurant: Pizzafari and Flame Tree BBQ Movie: Hercules, Tangled, Aladdin, Mary Poppins and Princess and the Frog Character: Ariel, Lottie, Hades, Megara, Rex, Mary Poppins, Aladdin, Flynn Rider and Chip & Dale Next up, Allie! Allie is one of my best friends on this earth, is also 17, and is a HUGE Disney freak too! She actually invited me on this trip! You see, she is an only child, and every year her parents let her pick a friend to take to Disney with her, and she chose me! I am eternally grateful to all of them, and I have them to thank for some of the best memories of my life, which is truly priceless. I love Allie because she has an awesome sense of humor and is quite brilliant. We have very similar values and beliefs, and sometimes we even share thoughts! She is like my twin, I swear. She makes me laugh until I cry, and we always have so much fun together. Oh, and my nickname for her is Chippy, because she reminds me of a chipmunk sometimes. So, if I ever refer to her as that in this TR, don't be alarmed. She has been going to Disney World since she was really little, and she shares my love of the place. Here are some of Allie's Disney favorites! Park: EPCOT Attraction: The Gran Fiesta Tour, Tower of Terror, and Space Mountain Show: Illuminations: Reflections of Earth and Wishes! Table-Service Restaurant: Teppan Edo, Yak and Yeti, and Le Cellier Counter-Service Restaurant: Sunshine Seasons Movie: Mulan, Hercules, Finding Nemo, and Aladdin Character: Mulan, Panchito, Chip & Dale, Belle, and Ariel Sharon! Sharon is Allie's mom, and is one of the sweetest people I have ever met. She is a genius. She is so genuine and kind and I just love being around her! She was our photographer extraordinaire on this trip, and she was also our coordinator. She is a big fan of the plan, and I just love that about her! She even hung our itinerary on the fridge in our villa! Such an angel. She has been going to Disney for years and years, and in addition to their trip with Allie, she and Allie's dad take a trip down for Food & Wine each fall. She loves Disney and making memories with Allie. I was so happy to be a part of it! Here are some of Sharon's Disney favorites! Park: Magic Kingdom Attraction: Mickey's Philharmagic Show: Wishes! Table-Service Restaurant: 'Ohana Counter-Service Restaurant: Columbia Harbour House Movie: The Rescuers Character: Bianca, Bernard, and the Fairy Godmother Last, but not least, Timmy! Timmy is Allie's dad, and is one of the greatest people I know. His subtle humor is the BEST, especially when it comes out of nowhere, much like the picture above. He and Allie's mom work really hard all year and really enjoy their vacation time in Disney. He is also very genuine and honest, and very smart. (It runs in the family.) He likes to sample all the food and adult beverages in Disney and relax by the pool. He and Sharon are the reason I was able to go on this trip, so I am so thankful to them for that! Here are some of Timmy's Disney favorites! Park: EPCOT Attraction: Tower of Terror Show: Illuminations: Reflections of Earth Table-Service Restaurant: California Grill Counter-Service Restaurant: Columbia Harbour House Movie: Bedknobs and Broomsticks Character: Timon When I refer to Allie's parents TOGETHER, I will most likely call them "The Units." They're so precious: Along the way, you will see Allie's and my Chip & Dale obsession a LOT: You will also see many Frumpy pictures, which will all include hilarious explanations, of course. Yeah...we'll get there. You'll also see and hear about a couple of DIS meets, tour group mayhem, flirty cast members, and some new friends! And now, my Famous Five W's of Disney! Who? Honestly, don't you all READ? What? An 8-night, 9-day trip to Walt Disney World with all of our Annual Passes and the Tables in Wonderland card! (We flew, by the way.) When? July 14th-22nd, 2012 Where? Disney's Boardwalk Villas (aka my new favorite resort) in a 1-bedroom villa! (Allie's parents have been DVC members since the 90's!) Why? Because Allie's family invited me! And they are the BEST! It was a fun, crazy, and HILARIOUS trip full of laughs, smiles, and unfortunately taxes. (Hehe...I couldn't resist.) I can't wait to share it with you, so stay tuned for the food, the fun and the Frump!
