That's right folks......I just might ship my pants....In more ways than one. Welcome to my Pre-Trip Report. I know what you're thinking Ship your pants? Yes, in the literal sense...pants take up way to much room in luggage. (I learned that the hard way in January 2010 when I didn't bring enough pants and about froze to death.) Why not ship your pants? Everyone should ship their pants. Well, according to Kmart at least. And yes in the silly sense...I'm about ready to crap myself due to the excitement. Ahead of time I do want to thank each and everyone of you Dis'ers that stop by to read and comment. I'll do my best to keep you entertained and fulfilled so that you won't lie awake at night wondering what I'll be doing 188 days from now. If at any point you don't feel like you're getting your money's worth......well......uh.......keep it to yourself. Just kidding. If you like what you are reading you can shout it from the mountain tops...oh, and leave a comment here, ask questions, or voice your concerns. I suppose I need to get on with the who, what, when, where, and why of this PTR so you can figure out if you want to continue on this little journey with me. I know that the OP's first post is what makes me decide whether to continue reading. So as Mickey says: On with the show! I guess I'll go in reverse order: WHY? Uh.....does anyone need a reason to go to Disney? I think not. None of the people on this trip have been to Disney except for me. Also, there is a rental convention going on at the end of the trip that two members of our party will be attending. WHERE? Uh, Disney. Well I guess you're probably wanting a bit more. Our Reservation is for Coronado Springs. The boys who will be joining us picked Coronado, so I let them have their pick! But with this change happy group who knows where we'll end up.***Changed to Port Orleans French Quarter as of 7/30/13*** WHEN? February 2, 2014 - February 9, 2014 WHAT? Disney Vacation with Disney Virgins (yes, they do exist). Apparently I am the travel agent for this group since no one knows anything about Disney. WHO? Well here is a disclaimer.....there are no children on this trip (unless you count me who often acts like one). We are a group of 4 adults and all of us are gay. Yep, I said gay. 2 guys and 2 girls. So you can choose from the following 1. Continue reading and actively engage in this PTR like the Disney lovers that I know. 2. Continue reading without engaging and just be a lurky-loo (I'm so guilty of that-come on, you can at least say Hi!). 3. Continue reading without engaging to see how the "other side" lives (We eat, breathe, and love Disney just like everybody else). 4. Stop reading, keep your comments to yourself, continue on with another PTR's, and forget that you even read this. OK. And now back to our regularly scheduled PTR: February 2014 PTR: I think I might ship my pants. WHO? Like I said, there are 4 of us. Me: I was fortunate enough to grow up on Disney. My first trip was when I was four weeks old. My parents will tell you they threw me in to the water at Disney's River Country, and that's how I learned to swim. They'll also tell you on that same trip I fell through the slats on the lawn chairs and slept face down in the sand. That lack of oxygen may or may not have affected me long term. I don't remember all the trips to Disney or where we stayed but here's what I do remember.... A. Back in the day there only used to be 1 Disney Dining Plan. The Deluxe, and boy was that a ton of food. After each meal they would give you mints, like Andes Mints, I would save the uneaten ones and put them in my fanny pack. Yes, fanny pack-you better not be laughing. Obviously I didn't take in to consideration that 100 + degree heat would melt the chocolate in said fanny pack. Needless to say it ruined the fanny pack (thank goodness) and the the camera I had in there. Apparently I was licking the chocolate off of the camera in hopes of bringing it back to life. Didn't work. B. One trip we stayed at the Polynesian. My brother and I were at the ages where we got along but refused to sleep in the same bed, so I slept on the couch. I threw up all over the Polynesian's couch. We had eaten at the Mexico Pavilion that night but I have no idea if that is what caused me to be sick. C. I ate quail at Victoria and Albert's back when all the servers where called Victoria and Albert. What the heck were my parents thinking in taking us to that place. I think they have banned kids now. Most appropriate Disney name: Alice from Alice in Wonderland...but you knew that didn't you. I'm curious, gullible, easy to please, but I have a quick temper. My Partner in Crime. She grew up in the Florida panhandle but never visited Disney World. She isn't a Disney person YET! I'm hoping that will change with this trip. Most appropriate Disney name is Sleeping Beauty. This girl can sleep. Anywhere, any time, standing up, sitting down...it doesn't matter. She could sleep all night, then sleep all day, and then sleep all night again. Which sucks for me because I am not a sleeper and I am definitely not a napper. My Bestie in Crime! I've known him for ...... 15 years. We don't get to see each other as often as we like but when we get together it's like time hasn't passed and we never miss a beat. I'm shocked that he hasn't been to Disney but I am so thankful that he gets his first Disney experience with me. Disney name: Wall-E My Bestie's Partner in Crime, and my boss for my part time job. Super funny, out going, knows how to have a good time, but when it comes to business he doesn't play . Disney name Buzz. The most appropriate Disney names came from the pictures I chose on MyDisneyExperience. (With the exception of sleeping beauty. She wasn't an option so I had to choose Snow White, who to be fair, did go in to a deep sleep). So that's all of us: Alice, Snow White, Wall-E, and Buzz. Stay Tuned as I wander through all of the responsibility of planning this trip.
