PTR Post Index: Background on the Cast Day 1 Plans Our Magical Parade Day 2 Epcot Baby! Disney maps are sooo cool! Day 3 MK and MNSSHP! One Week Countdown! Day 4 Gettin' Wild at Animal Kingdom Day 1 - Off to Neverland! Day 1 Part 2 Day 2 Epcot Day 3 - Our HOT Day in MK "Ahhh, Salam and good evening to you worthy friends...please, please come closer...agh, too close, a little too close." There, now welcome to my very first pre-trip (and later) trip report! I'll be covering about a month in pre-trip and then sadly only a 4 day vacation to Disney World starting on Sept. 23rd and ending on Sept 27th 2009. But...short as it is, this vacation is VERY SPECIAL. Why? Because this is a Girls-Only trip to WDW with me and my three best friends - one who's never been to Disney! No husbands or boyfriends allowed! We get together about once a year for a fabulous vacation and so it's always a very special time for us. Yes I know, everyone thinks their vacation is very special, but mine is filled with hot women and not everybody can say that! So, if you like days by the pool, humor, eating, drinking, quotes from Disney movies, MNSSHP and just general merriment, this is the trip report for you!!! DISCLAIMER: If you are interested in a very masculine point of view please don't subscribe to this report, believe me, you'll really hate it...why do you think the husbands and boyfriends are staying home? It's a given that we'll be operating from a very girly estrogen-filled point of view...that is what this trip is all about THE CAST We are four women in our late twenties. Names have been changed to protect the guilty. This is my first time posting photos so hopefully this will work, I know that Photobucket is the the typical m-o around here, but I'm going against the grain and using Picasa by Google for my image uploads *crosses fingers* Meet Ariel Jasmine, the Disney first-timer....27 years is really too long to have to wait, what is wrong w/ her parents?! Belle And Tink, that's me! I'm sure this will be a huge surprise to everyone, but I'm the planner of the group So basically everything on this trip has been planned by me with a little input from the girls, but not much...which of course I don't mind since I want to plan it all anyhow! THE THEME SONG I know not every trip has a theme, but this one does. It's Girls Just Wanna Have Fun because, well, we do. and to make it Disney, it's the Miley Cyrus version! THE TICKETS I'm an Annual Passholder and also the resident Disney-freak on this trip (and PROUD of it!!!) Ariel, Belle and Jasmine have 3-day Magic Your Way passes w/o the Park Hopper Option...we decided to do this for cost reasons mostly, but also since we have such a short time for the trip, we thought 1 park each day would be enough. We also have tickets to Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party for Sept 25th. THE RESORT We're staying in 2 standard rooms at the beautiful Caribbean Beach Resort. I'm using a passholder discount for my room and the other is full price w/ the free dining deal. I've stayed there before, and this time we've requested the Jamaica village - we're not using the busses and think the quieter village will be nice...plus I love the blue and yellow colors of those buildings, so cute!! THE DINING We're all on the Disney Dining Plan - regular version. Here are our ADR's, we pretty much got whatever I, um I mean we, wanted. Sept 23 - O'hana dinner Sept 24 - Restaurant Marrakesh dinner Sept 25 - The Wave dinner Sept 26 - Boma dinner "But this is no ordinary Trip! It once changed the course of four young women's lives, four young women who like this trip report are more than what they seem....diamonds in the rough." And that's the start of my report. I hope you tune in...I'll be updating w/ more plans soon. Ten points to whoever knows what movie I've been quoting (or paraphrasing if you want to get picky)!!
