Ok so I know my trip isnt for another 54 days but I figured I would start a pre-trip report. So a little about me .im Courtney. Im 25 and have been going to Disney if not every year since I was born, its been every other year. My family has time sharing down in Lake Buena Vista, so even if we werent staying on Disney property, we still went to the parks. My biggest obsession came when I went back to Disney back in 2005.Me and my boyfriend at the time, Mike, were only dating for about 2 months, and he decided to come along on vacation with me and the family. Of course we were at the time share place but we still went to the parks and had a ball. Well the next year in July 2006, we all went back again, again staying at the timeshare. Then on July 30, 2006, Mike proposed to me at Cinderellas Castle. That began the craziness! this made me a princess according to my husband! After that day, our wedding was Cinderella based, we then proceeded to go on our honeymoon at Caribbean Beach in September of 2007, and then went back at All Star Movies for our one year anniversary just last year in September 2008. On that trip, I decided that instead of giving my niece money or a gift for her high school graduation gift in june 2009, I was going to take her to Disney on a vacation as her gift. So that leads us to now. My husband and I are taking my niece, Chynna, to Disney on june 23rd-july 6th for her high school graduation gift. We are staying at Pop Century. We have the deluxe dining plan (which equals to 39 meals per person and 2 snacks per person) and we have 8 tickets to the parks along with the water park and fun option added on. So needless to say I am a Disney freak! I was a nut planning my wedding and I have been a nut ever since planning our trips. This year is no exception. My DH and DN have even been making fun of me askng me if I scheduled time to go to the bathroom because I have every mnute planned for us for this trip. My husband is a bit sick of the Disney stuff but he puts up with it because I love it so much. But I will say I can see where hes coming from since hes been there every year since 2005 and hes a man and could care less about characters and stuff. My niece is also THRILLED! Shes started a countdown a couple days ago! Shes mainly excited because she has never been on a trip without her two little brothers and hasnt been to Disney since she was probably 10. so she is very excited to be going. Since this is her graduation gift, I have tons of stuff planned for her. I have already bought her a basket from memoriesbybetsy.com which has the graduation ears engraved with her name, a 2009 mickey graduation plush, and a 2009 graduation pin. This will be delivered to our room the day we get there. I have alreadty orderd the mini cake princess surprise for her at one of the restaurants and the pop up surprise centerpiece for another meal. I am planning on getting the room decorated through the disneyflorist and I am also ordering her a custom cake. Plus of course she will have the rgaradution pin to wear everywhere! So I guess I will get down to the itinerary now. On and one other thing, can someone please let me know how to post pics on here. Every time I try, it doesnt work so that would be a lot of help if someone could let me know. On june 23rd we leave from the Philadelphia airport. Now our flight leaves at 7:05 in the morning so of course we have to be there by 5am. The DH and the DN are not too thrilled with that and neither is the DF who has to take us to the airport. But hey I figured if I am paing for that day I might as well get my moneys worth and spend the whole day there. So I figured we should be arriving to the hotel by around 10:30 or 11am, so here we go: 2:15pm-initially I had reservation for Capn Jacks but after reading someone elses reposrt trip and seeing pics of the food from the Cookes of Dublin, I am canceling and going there instead, so Cookes of Dublin for lunch (DDP) 7:45pm- Tutto Italia (DDP) june 24th: 8:30am- Boma (DDP) pool time! 2pm- Whispering Canyon (DDP) 7:30pm- Chef Mickeys (DDP) June 25th: Animal Kingdom Day! 8:10am- Donalds Safari Character Breakfast (DDP) lunch-Rainforest (OOP) 7:05pm- 1900 Park Fare(DDP)-added on the mini cake surprise!
