    I love your outfit too! Shoes look super comfy!

    Your resort looks phenonomal!

    I always enjoy the Great Movie Ride and agree that it is a classic for sure!

    Osbourne Lights look wonderful, I can't believe I have never seen them but now that I think about it, I dont think I have ever been in DHS at night?

    Thanks!!

    Thanks so much! The Legend of Captain Jack Sparrow is basically a "walk through" where you just walk into a room, then watch a video basically and there's some effects but overall I was disappointed!

    YES! Right near the Honey I Shrunk the Kids area they had great adult beverages!

    Thanks so much! :goodvibes GMR is a classic I agree! You should definitely go to DHS at night during Christmas! It's overwhelming and amazing! Like I said my jaw was on the floor for most of it!

    Chapter Four: Le Cellier, Epcot Fun, and Illuminations!
    Thursday, December 6, 2012


    We left DHS around 6:30 and I was worried we were going to miss our 7:15 ADR! Luckily we got on the first boat and made it just in time! Like I said I LOVEEE the boats :)!

    We made our way to duh-duh-duh-daa my favorite restaurant in the WORLD (Disney World and the actual World)!!

    [​IMG]

    Literally just thinking about the cheddar cheese soup makes my mouth water!! :worship:

    We were seated right away and I was SOO excited!

    I had seen some people on the Dis order the Martini flight so I knew I had to get it! I'm so glad I did because it was awesome!

    YUMM! :rotfl:

    I was most excited about the glow cube :goodvibes! The blue one was my favorite! The sugar on the edge went perfectly and it was delish. My second favorite was the chocolate one, it tasted very kaluha-y, which I LOVE! But the cranberry one I didn't like that much :(...it was too medicine-y. I didn't drink a lot of that one at all. But the other two made up for that one!

    Then I had my FAVORITE soup! I would have licked the bowl if it wasn't socially unacceptable...

    [​IMG]

    I got the soup as my meal because it fills me up so much! Soup + Bread = FULL Mindy. Brett got steak and loved it! We finished up then made our way around Epcot.

    We stopped in Japan and I got a ton of Hello Kitty merchandise :)! Then I did Pick a Pearl and I'm so glad I did! It was so fun!

    [​IMG]

    I still have not gotten anything to put my Pearl in yet! I'm waiting for the perfect jewelry item!

    Brett got some of the frozen beer and he liked it! He loves slush so it was two of his favorite things combined :)!

    [​IMG]

    We then went on Maelstrom and after we got off it Brett's face was literally
    HUH? :confused3. He was like "what just happened?" hahaha :rotfl2: GOOD times. On the way out of Norway I bought a Jasmine pin and Brett bought an autograph book for one of his co-workers :)!

    It was starting to be around 9:30 so we went toward France to get a spot for Illuminations! I love how they incorporate all the countries so it's a perfect show no matter where you watch!

    We were both so tired! We walked back to the Beach Club and called it a night! Day one complete!!!!

    Up Next: Day 2: More DHS!

    Everyone says Le Cellier has gone downhill but I totally disagree! Yep drinks, bread, soup, and I will SO FULL! I definitely recommend it! Thanks!

    Thanks so much!!

    Thank you thank you! That sounds perfect! I'm debating on whether to go to Disney this year, next year, then skip out for our honeymoon, or just save up for an extravagant honey moon! Did you go in between your engagement and honeymoon? I think Beach Club is one of the best :)!

    Thanks so much! :)

    Chapter Five: Hollywood & Breakfast!
    Friday, December 7, 2012

    We were up bright and early the next morning! We started off this foggy morning with some resort pictures.

    Lol Brett

    I was eager to get to Hollywood fast and get our Toy Story Fast passes of course!

    We were probably 6-8 people behind the front person at the gate so I was happy! They opened the gate and we booked it to Toy Story, we got FPs for 10:15 PERFECT!

    We went and enjoyed RnRC again and it was awesome as usual! We actually waited a while after the ride was over before you get to the red carpet area, it was weird but it only lasted about 2 mins, but thats 2 mins for than usual...ODD!

    We then got some breakfast at starring rolls, wow that place is under rated!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Brett got a coffee roll and I got a fruit/pastry delicious thing, SO GOOD!

    It was now about 10ish and we made our way back toward Toy Story but we took the scenic route!

    Classic!

    It was cool being able to see the lights during the day not lit! We got to see much more when there were no people around at all!

    [​IMG]
    Disney mangers are better.

    We stopped and did a photobooth, can't tell you the last time I've used one of these...maybe like middleschool at the mall HAHA! I'm so glad we did it came out hilarious!

    [​IMG]

    Then we finally found our destination!

    [​IMG]

    It feels so awesome just walking through that line!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]
    Love Andy's room!

    [​IMG]
    READY, SET, GOOOOO!

    Ugh that ride is just perfection! My right arm burns so much after but its worth every second!

    [​IMG]

    I know these scores are so lame compared to some of you here on the Dis but I was proud for beating Brett! :hug:

    Once we were done we made our way back to the boats, again taking in all the sights!

    We got back to the Beach Club, changed, and were ready for more adventure! :yay:

    Up Next: Finally Magic Kingdom Time!!

    Starring Rolls is so yummy! I could go for one of those cinnamon rolls right now!

    I love the TSM line. I swear I find something new in there every time.

    Chapter Six: Finally MK!

    Friday, December 7, 2012


    We headed back to the Beach Club, changed and I was so pumped for Magic Kingdom! I usually make MK the first park on any trip but it was physically impossible on such a short trip this time.

    A very kind gentleman took our picture in front of the amazing gingerbread house!

    [​IMG]

    This was the first time we were using Disney bus transportation this trip, yay!

    I get so excited seeing the top of the castle from far away! We made our way toward the entrance and I got SOOO excited seeing the Magic Kingdom all Christmasy! The other parks are great all decked out, but MK is the best of them all! pixiedust:

    It was kinda glum out but that wasn't stopping me!

    Our first ride was pirates :) then we did the mountains, it started to brighten up!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I absolutely positively could not get a Be Our Guest reservation for this day :sad:. I was up bright and early that dreaded day and waited 90 minutes on the phone for nothing, no worries though! We wanted to see what the wait for lunch was and it was two and a half hours :sad:. With this being our only day at MK we decided to try Gaston's! We got two pork shanks and a LeFou's Brew and we were very satisfied with our lunch! They were both REALLY GOOD! And we got a nice little table in the corner of Gaston's Tavern despite the fact it was pretty busy ;)!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    We finished up our lunch and were so stuffed! I definitely recommend Gaston's Tavern if you don't want to wait for BOG!

    One of our favorite things to do in MK is sit right next to the Walt/Mickey statue on the benches and people watch. We get popcorn and drinks and just sit, take in the sights, and watch how funny people are.

    We sat here for a good hour and a half, then I wanted to go look for the Castle Disney Alex and Ani bracelet!

    Up Next: My Christmas tree cupcake and searching for my Alex and Ani!

    Loving your TR!!!

    My husband proposed to me at Epcot. He likes to take all the credit, but I did all the planning for the trip, all he did was bring along the ring. :rotfl: Plus he hate Disney so he gets no special Disney proposal credit.

    Congratulations though and excited to see how he made it work :thumbsup2

    Chapter Seven: The Proposal!

    Friday, December 7, 2012


    After people watching for about an hour or so, we headed over to the Agrabah Bazaar to find my Alex and Ani bracelet. Unfortunately, we could only find the mickey head one and I was looking for the castle one! The CM said they would definitely have them at the emporium, so we headed back toward Main Street.

    I made a quick decision to go to the Main Street Bakery and get a cupcake. I was hoping they had similar ones to Starring Rolls, but instead I saw a Christmas tree one that I liked! The one I got was a little messed up on one side; and then it got especially messed up when the CM abruptly pushed the tray it was on and it fell over...then she just picked it up and didn't give me a new one or anything :confused3!! Do they even wash those trays? Oh well, hakuna matata, it was pretty funny though!

    [​IMG]
    I rotated the cupcake for the best photographic side lol.

    While we were in the Main Street Bakery, Brett's dad called. They chatted for a little bit, then Brett had to go to the bathroom. We made our way toward the entrance. I waited outside eating my cupcake :)! Brett was in there for a really long time. I just figured he had to poop or something LOL :rotfl2:. He came out and said the line was really long.

    We then took some pictures of the Mickey's Christmas Carol window displays, which is one of my favorite Holiday specials :)! It's only a half hour special but it's too perfect!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]
    Love Scrooge's face in this one, it's truly an "OMG" haha!

    [​IMG]
    TOO Cute!

    Then we went into the emporium and I was on a mission to find that castle Alex and Ani! We walked almost all the way through the store, then I asked a CM who said they were a little bit back. I found it and I was SO EXCITED! It's too perfect:

    [​IMG]

    We came out of the emporium and were walking down Main Street. Then I wanted to go on the Haunted Mansion, so I was walking pretty fast. Brett was then like "I have to get my camera out," and he got down on his knee right in front of Casey's Corner. I continued to walk pretty fast, not thinking he would stop in the middle of the street and take his camera out. I was pretty far ahead of him then he yelled "HEY!" LOL, I had to turn around. I came back thinking to myself: UGH c'mon I just wanna go on the haunted mansion, you slow poke!

    He had a box in his hand, he was smiling ear to ear, opened the box, and asked "Will you marry me?" My first reaction was "...No" as in "No, you're not really doing this right now are you!?!??" And then I answered YES and started balling :lovestruc. I literally was in such a state of shock! I was so happy! I couldn't believe I was actually proposed to in my favorite place on earth by my real life prince charming!!

    As we were hugging I heard a loud yelling "WOO!" I was thinking to myself wow everyone must be so excited for us! I turn around, and my WHOLE FAMILY, Brett's WHOLE FAMILY, and his BEST MAN and his BEST MAN'S GIRLFRIEND, are all there! They were hiding in the emporium watching everything! I was SO OVERWHELMED by everything, I just kept crying! I felt like I was gonna throw up!!! Literally the most magical moment of my entire life pixiedust:. I still cannot comprehend most because of how amazing it was! I don't know what I was more surprised about: the engagement or the most important people in my life being in Disney!

    Here are some pictures that our families took:

    It's the same for me! I planned everything for the trip too! Although Brett does get credit because he brought along the ring AND organized all the families to come! And thank you :)!

    Perfect! :D Hope you enjoy it!
