    Hey howdy hey all you space rangers, cow boys, and cow girls!

    This is my first PTR so bare with me!:) I'll be posting pictures and introductions in my next update.:thumbsup2 This PTR might be a little long as my trip isn't until Spring next year! I figured I might as well start now since I'm already planning and getting clothes ready! That last part might seem a little crazy.. But that will be easily explained in another update.. can't give everything away in the first post! :crazy2:

    Posting might be a little far in between, like every couple weeks or so just until the real planning begins, but I promise I'll have some awesome things in between from getting Disney stuff, to real life updates.

    As for my title... This may sound crazy... But I JUST recently found my love for Princesses. I have (within the past 2 years) for the first time seen The Little Mermaid, Mulan, All three Cinderella's, Beauty and the Beast, Tangled, Brave... and I think that might be it! Should be a crime.. :sad2: I am still on my quest to see all of them! But while watching them I fell in love with Tangled... and can quote most of the movie... then... I. Saw. Beauty and the Beast. OH MY GOD. Cutest movie ever... ( I can qoute most of that one too:rolleyes1) So... with that I found my love for Gaston...


    So.. Gaston... SPRING 2014! BE PREPARED!

    Just a little ps.... I'm also going to do questions with every update. That'll start next update. Hope you join me during all the fun of planning... then of course the trip itself! popcorn::

    TTFN TA TA FOR NOW:tigger:

    Welcome! 5 months... So close yet so far! For me it's harder to wait when it's that close than when it's far away!

    Yay! I'm here!

    Isn't dressing for Disney half the fun? Of course, I'm dressing 2 adorable little girls, so I'm not getting a ton of cutesy clothes for myself… :thumbsup2 I have a friend who does embroidery, so I'm going to get with her on a few things for my girls! :goodvibes

    HIYA PALS!

    I just wanted to get this out of the way... haha:) so.. here it is!

    THE INTRODUCTIONS!!!:

    [​IMG]
    Most recent Disney pic, from my 13th birthday trip!

    Well first of all on our magical journey will be me! I'm Kailey and I'm 17! This is going to be a graduation trip for me.:thumbsup2 Probably the best present ever! I'm home schooled and am going to start courses to become a dog trainer in January, then hopefully move onto agility training and then hopefully go to school to train guide dogs!:) But enough of that! Let's get to the important stuff!

    Favorite park: Magic Kingdom
    Favorite character: Gaston, Pascal, Buzz and Pumba
    Favorite ride: Toy Story Mania and The Seas with Nemo and Friends
    Favorite restaurant: The Coral Reef
    Favorite movie: Beauty and the Beast, Tangled, and Finding Nemo


    The other person on this trip will be my mom. I don't have a picture of her up right now because we are horrible with loading pictures onto our laptops. :confused3 I'll try to get a few on here soon! With that being said I love my mom for this. I must say, she mostly deals with my being Disney obsessed. She likes Disney but not as much as me by a long shot! Haha:laughing: I love her sooo much for taking me on this trip! Best mom EVER award winner right here people! :hug:

    Favorite park: Magic Kingdom
    Favorite character: Repunzel and Dory
    Favorite ride: Haunted Mansion
    Favorite restaurant: The Coral Reef
    Favorite movie: Finding Nemo and Tangled


    Well there you have it! The cast of our trip! Sorry for the lack of pictures/: We mostly leave the picture taking to my grandmother so we don't have many pictures right at our disposal! But I promise that will change when we are in Disney! I'm determinded to have plenty of pictures for my future TR! (I'm also planning on making a scrap book so I need pictures for that too!)

    Well folks that's it for now!

    I almost forgot!
    QUESTION OF THE DAY!!!:
    What are YOUR favorites? Introduce yourself!

    UNTIL NEXT TIME!:hippie:

    Haha thank you! That was probably on of my favorite moments of that trip. At the time I was obsessed with Tinker bell so Captain Hook was awesome! haha:) And yeah... I started working with dogs and now I can't get enough! They're just to cute!

    Well hello all!

    This will be kind of a short update. I will have a few coming soon though! A few changes may or may not be happening with my vacation, so I thought I'd tell you all the dates and what not. We are not positive but these are what we are going to try for. :thumbsup2 Now... on with the most exciting part of this update!

    Option number one....
    This is our original plan. May 1st-11th at Art of Animation LM room, or if we can't get in AoA, then POP. That's right! 11 days in DISNEY!!!:yay:

    Now for our newest possibility...
    Option number two.....
    a 3 night DCL Cruise that makes one stop at Castaway Cay, then after disembarking going to WDW for 11 days with hopefully AoA, if not Aoa then POP.:woohoo:

    Hopefully we can save enough money to do the cruise and Disney, but if not, I'm happy either way:cheer2: So excited! Either one we end up doing, it will be my longest vacation EVER! Also, if we do the cruise it will be my first cruise EVER! :banana:

    Well, I guess I should start this update with a RL update! This past week has been pretty rough for me. Sprained my knee so I'm pretty much cooped up for a while. Messed up some plans we had for a weekend trip too.:( I guess I'd rather have my knee get better though!

    And I also have another Disney update! When I last posted we were debating a Disney cruise, but we soon decided against it. We would rather spend out time in Disney right now and I get nervous being surrounded by water. I swear though! One day I WILL go on a Disney cruise! So now we have two options. 11 days at hopefully AOA or 12! One extra night may not seem like a lot but when it will be spent shopping at DTD it is VERY exciting! :hyper:

    My mom said the same thing! We went to Disney when she had a broken ankle. Not fun! We actually LEFT EARLY! So hopefully it wont be something that acts up and just heals fine!

    And cool! I'll have to make sure to have some sort of cookie or cupcake or something along those lines that day! Haha

    Hey everyone!

    I know I know, I already did an update! I thought I'd post another seeing how I'm cooped up another week because of my knee.:sad1: Since I can't move around too much I thought I'd tell you guys about what our dining plans are! Because you know... one of the most amazing things about Disney is.... THE FOOD!:thumbsup2 We don't know what order yet but this is where we want to eat so far!

    As you know from my last update it's pretty official that we will be there from May 1st-11th. 11 Days! So that means 11 ressies!:) We are VERY big character dining people so expect to see that a lot!

    1900 Park Fare Dinner (Not new to us)
    Supercalifragalistic Breakfast (May not be a new place but breakfast is new for us!)
    Wolf Gang Puck Dinner(New for us!)
    Crystal Palace Breakfast (Not new, but new for breakfast)
    Coral Reef Dinner (Our favorite from last trip, a MUST DO now!)
    Chef Mickey's Breakfast (Eaten there on all our trips. A tradition now!)
    Be Our Guest Dinner(NEW! Hard to get I know, but hopefully we can get a
    ressie!)
    Cinderella's Royal Table Dinner (Another new one!)
    Le Cellier Dinner (New! It just looks SO yummy!)
    50's Prime Time Dinner (Another new one!)
    O'Hana Breakfast (Went last trip, love Stitch!)

    If we can't get any ressie's to some places we have Big River Grill, Tusker House Breakfast and Akershus as back ups. Might as well be prepared right?

    Last but not least we have a few QS places we must eat at:
    Pizza Planet (I LOVE Toy Story and have never had Disney pizza!:confused3)
    Be Our Guest (Even if we go for dinner I still want to try lunch!)
    Earl of Sand which (I LOVE Chicken Caesar Wraps)

    And that's it! We are also planning on getting tickets to see La Nouba. We wanted to see it last trip but couldn't. So hopefully we'll be able to this time around! :cool1:

    Also.... If any one knows a place to get a chicken caesar wrap in Disney other than an EOS or Beaches and Cream please let me know! One of my favorite things to eat! YUM!

    Well, I guess I should start this update by saying I have some very good and some very bad news. I hate having these things all in the same update but I really want to get it over with/tell you guys. I'm going to start with the bad news I guess.

    Well I went to a wedding reception for my cousin last week, and today I found out she passed away last night. It all came as a huge shock to us since no one expected it. We don't know what happened but hope to know more tomorrow. I only met her a few times, but she was SUCH a sweet girl. She was way too young to leave us, but at least she's in a better place now and I hope she's at peace.:hug:

    Then I have one more piece of bad news.:( I've posted about my knee before, and how I sprained it. Well, I went to the Ortho yesterday and she thinks I tore something. I go for an MRI sometime soon. She said that pretty much I'll either need to do physical therapy or if worst comes to worst...surgery:scared1: Hopefully it won't come to that, so I'm just focusing on getting better for now. I also have a knee brace I have to wear. You know those hideous black ones? Yeah... being the teen girl I am I HAD to make that a bit more interesting.... and here is the finished product!
    [​IMG]
    I love my be-dazzler! :thumbsup2 At least it looks a little prettier now!

    Phew. Glad I got that over with.
    Now... the moment you all have been waiting for! THE GOOD NEWS! Drum roll please.....



    WE BOOKED!!!!!!!!!!!!

    You heard me right people! We are officially going to my favorite place ever! and not only that...we are staying at....
    [​IMG]
    ART OF ANIMATION!!!!!!!!!!!:woohoo:
    I am very proud to say that our OFFICIAL dates are May 1st-11th!:banana:

    I'm sorry this good and bad news kinda got mixed together. And I know I didn't HAVE to say anything about what's happening right now, but I feel like the people on the DIS can be a very good support system and know my friends on here are always there for some prayers when they're needed:hug:

    So with that I guess I'll let you guys go on your way!

    Have a very magical day!:tinker:

    I am so sorry about your cousin. Praying for her family.

    That sucks about your knee! Hopefully you will be ALL better quickly! And go to all your PT appts, because your insurance might not cover the MRI if you don't! (I have worked in healthcare billing for years! ;) )
