    Howdy Y'all!!!!

    Well, we are back from our magical trip to WDW! I have had 3 days to recover.... now it is time for the TR!

    Just a little recap.... for the PTR go here

    The Cast:

    :bride: Me : PKB, Tracey (26) Occupation: Paralegal , Disney Fanatic Favorite ride: Pirates of the Carabean, Journey into the Imagination. Last Trip to WDW: October 1994

    :groom: DF (37, 38 on 10/17) Occupation: Graphic Designer, Avid Animation Buff and Disney Fan. Favorite Place in Disney: World Showcase. Last Trip to Disney: 1988

    Where: Boardwalk Inn
    When: October 17-26, 2008


    How it came to be:

    DF and I had been surrounded by WDW goers. Our friends had just gotten engaged in front of the Castle, and my Mom and GM had just gotten back from celebrating my GM Breast Cancer Remission. They all chose December, Christmas season, and had amazing things to say about it. On Christmas Day we had gathered at my GM for breakfast and gift exchange. They had the parade on and we couldn't believe how much the parks had changed. DF was glued to the screen and kept commenting on what he didn't get to see when he last went.

    Later that night, having been spoiled by family and stuffed full of food, we somehow got to talking about a real vacation this year. DF suggested we go to Disney.

    We both woke up the next morning and talked about it a bit more before work. I ordered the DVD and when it came we sat down to check it out. We looked at the parks and our excitement meter peaked. Then it came time to look at the hotels. We both had determined that if we were going to do this vacation, we were going to go all out, everything we want. When we got to the Boardwalk Inn, we both pointed at the tv and screamed "Thats it!!!"

    We started to jot down what we wanted. He wanted to go to Universal for one day, two tops. He wanted to see all of the World Showcase. I wanted the World Showcase, a trip to MNSSHP and Lunch at Cinderella's Castle. We both agreed that the trip would be 10 days.

    Durring the planning process we got engaged!!!! So we made this trip into a celebration with just the two of us!

    Some questions that will be answered:

    How many dreams come true for us?
    Do we meet Captian Jack?
    Did we like dining with dinasaurs?
    Did I make it onto Everest?
    Did I get to meet Jack Sparrow?
    How did DF surprise me?
    What exactly made me sick?
    Why is photopass is the greatest thing ever?
    Can we see Illuminations and Wishes in the same night??
    Do we actually see Fantasmic?

    Stay tuned for that and lots lots more!
