Hi there! After reading and commenting on so many PTRs and dining reviews Im in the mood to throw mine out here and share in all the anticipation and excitement!! Who doesnt love to commiserate and plan with all the helpful people here on the Disboards? Considering that I didnt even know what an ADR or a photopass was a couple of years ago, I think I have come a long way thanks to this very friendly community. Note: To skip the preamble... chapter links are in post #2. Who am I and what am I doing here? Glad you asked! Im Brenda (aka trouble as DH calls me) and I will be traveling with said DH and DD (16) in August which is NEXT MONTH! Im a lover of dining at WDW and Im always looking for new and exciting things to try so dont be surprised if a lot of my PTR involves dining plans and strategies. My typical travel partner is our DD, Emily, who is 16. She and I have enjoyed several mother/daughter trips in the past few years. We have similar tastes and touring styles so we really love these vacations together. Building some fond memories together is a nice little benefit as well. And making a guest appearance this trip will be my DH, Michael (Prince Charms-a-lot since he is the funniest and most charming of men!) He has not been to WDW since our family trip in 2006 which was a combination cruise/WDW vacation. Hes the type of guy who would rather go on a fishing trip or camp than go to WDW. (Yes, I knew this when I married him oh so long ago but I thought I could change him. Ladies, you know how that goes!) Because I have been with my company forever (ok, technically only 22 years but it seems like a lifetime!) I have 4 more weeks of vacation each year compared to DH. So with all my time off I tend to book trips with Emily or my parents. Not to worry though, we still take family vacations just not WDW until now. When I was booking our family vacation earlier this year it was going to be just a cruise but then I sneaked in 6 days pre-cruise at WDW. Our plans ended up changing and we dropped the cruise but kept the WDW portion. DH wasnt going to go since he said it could be another girl trip but then all of a sudden he did a 180 on me and said he would come with us!!! I was so excited! I can be his personal Dis tour guide and show him all the things that we love to do, and see, and eat. Lucky him! Now to reveal a chink in the armor of Prince Charms-a-lot .DH sometimes gets annoyed with all of my attention to taking photos. Although I can proudly say that for vacation dining he doesnt take a bite of his food until I have snapped a photo!! (How well trained is he??) I have cautioned DH that I like characters, and I like photos with characters, and if you go with us, you may need to pose with a princess or two. His reply, I could pose with that Jasmine girl and see if she has a belly piercing. Hes such a man! And that my friends is how the title of this PTR was born. Who doesn't love this guy! Next Up: What are our plans?
