    Hi guys! This is my first PTR ever so please, be patient with me!

    A little background info on the cast of characters:

    Me - Jen, 26, born & raised in NJ. I've been a travel consultant for almost a year (May 5will be 1 year!) and a retired waitress. :) I love all things Disney. This will be my fourth full trip to the World since 2006. I took a trip to MK as a shore excursion on a 2005 NCL cruise so since then, I've been hooked. Previously, I hadn't been there since I was about 7 or 8 years old, when my parents took me. Back then, MGM was practically brand new...and still called MGM!

    DBf - Joe, 27, also from NJ. He's a waiter for Chili's right now but more importantly an aspiring movie director. He just wrapped up his first feature length film and is in the process of editing it! I made a cameo :laughing: We've been together for almost 4 years (April 24th!) and he probably loves Disney more than I do. He's taken trips with his family every summer since he was a kid and he's always been my companion for Disney World. I have no idea what number trip this will be for him!

    Here's a picture of us:

    The plan for this trip is:
    9/20-9/24 staying at POR
    9/24-9/27 set sail on the Wonder!
    9/27-9/29 two extra nights of magic at ASMo

    These are all firsts for us! We've never stayed at POR (I've never stayed at a Mod!) or ASMo. We're POP people. Neither one of us have ever sailed with DCL. Other cruise lines yes, but not Disney! We're doing it in style this time! :)

    Expect more updates as the time gets closer. Less than 6 months to go!!

    Hey Jenny! :wave: I'm so glad that you decided to do a pre-trip report. Nice PTR intro! That's such a cute picture of you guys. Love those Medieval Times crowns. :laughing:

    That's cool that Joe wants to be a movie director. Tell him I said congrats on making is first feature-length film. That's a great accomplishment. Please keep us updated about that.

    Can't wait to read more! :cool1:

    Thanks for stopping by! :yay:

    Medieval Times is so much fun! We went there for Joe's birthday this past January. It was a blast.

    I will definitely keep you updated on his movie. He usually posts trailers online so I'll send you a link if you'd like.

    Me either!! :banana: I'm looking forward to summer but I'm also hoping it flies by!

    I will let you know when one goes up. He had put one up a couple months ago but I'm not sure if it'd still around.

    Thanks! :)

    I can't wait for this trip! It's going to be the best one yet!

    Hi! Just stepping in to say hello. I see that you are going in Sept. Did you get free dining today? If not call & ask for it. Code TBV It saved me a ton of money. :goodvibes

    See ya!!

    Is it available for Land & Sea packages? I heard that it isn't.

    So I know that my dates fall within the free dining promotion at WDW. But I've heard that if you have a Land & Sea package, you are not eligible to get it. I would love to add it on but I don't think that I can since it's not a new booking or a MYW package. Has anyone ever gotten free dining via Land & Sea?

    Well, unfortunately I can't get the free dining since I am booked on a Land & Sea package. Bummer; but that won't stop me from eating like a monster at WDW! :rotfl:

    Thanks to Lainey, I know that I have 83 days remaining until I can book my ADRs! But since I plan and think about all things Disney, I have a vague idea of where I want to go. Here are the places we are interested in:

    Primetime Cafe - we've been here before, we love it!
    San Angel Inn - love the atmosphere and food!
    Le Cellier - this will be a first; I've heard nothing but good things.
    Mama Melrose - another first but the menu looks yummy!
    Beaches & Cream - anything 50's inspired :thumbsup2
    Tusker House - character breakfast with Donald, he's our favorite
    Kona Cafe - 2 words: Tonga Toast. Joe loves bananas...I'm leaning toward the pineapple pancakes.
    Ohana's - believe it or not, another first!
    Hoop De Doo - we're torn between this and Ohana's. I actually did a poll on this and it was split right down the middle. :confused3

    I think I'm leaning more toward Ohana's because we'll be having a late dinner and it overlooks MK. Joe is a big Wishes fan. Does anyone know if they pipe in the music for it in the restaurant?

    One of the days, we'll be going to Universal. I know :scared1: But Margaritaville is a must!

    We'll also be there for the start of the Food & Wine Festival which I'm super excited about!! That's yet another first. Is my thread title starting to make a little more sense? ;)

    I'm so excited that you'll be there for F & W. You are going to love it!!

    Great update!

    I've heard they at least dim the lights and lower the music.

    I can't wait to try everything at F & W. I read last year that they had a champagne stand. I hope they have that again!! :thumbsup2
