Hello one and all, and to my third trip report! You may know me from my previous trip reports, "One Step Ahead of the Slowpokes!" and Stuck on Splash, Swimming in Sewage, & Still Laughing!, or you may not know me at all! Either way, Im happy youre here! Step inside our storybook; imagine whats in store Lets get started! This trip report will document my 9th trip to Disney World! Im pretty late starting it, because the trip was in December, but Im still really excited to relive it! Before I explain my strange title, lets do the 5 Ws! Who (AKA- The Cast!)- Me- Joni, 24. Im a high school English teacher from NC! I have been completely obsessed with Disney World since 2007. I am the Disney planner in my family, and thats fine with me! Im not happy unless Im either at Disney or I have a Disney trip in the works. I am also one of the weirdest people youll ever meet. Try as I might, I just cant stop being awkward and nerdy. Ive learned to embrace my strangeness, and it makes for some pretty good laughs sometimes! Youll learn lots more about me as the trip report progresses! My Disney Breakdown: Favorite Movie(s): The Lion King, Aladdin, Beauty and the Beast, Toy Story 3, Tangled(I love them all!) Favorite Character(s): WOODY and Pluto Favorite Park: Magic Kingdom Favorite Ride: Rockn Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith Favorite Resort: Animal Kingdom Lodge Favorite Restaurant(s): Le Cellier and Ohana Favorite Non-Ride Activity: Animation Academy Partner in Crime: My husband John, 25. John and I have been together since I was a freshman in high school. This summer we will celebrate our 4th wedding anniversary. John is a Green Beret in the US Army. Hes my tough G.I Joe, but hes also a huge softy and loves Disney almost as much as I do. Hes not much into planning the trips, but hes always more than happy to come along and enjoy the ride! Thankfully, John shares my awkwardness, so we have a blast together. Hes my husband, but hes also my best friend. *Sigh* Did I mention how lucky I am? Johns Disney Breakdown: Favorite Movie(s): Race to Witch Mountain, Disney Earth, and Swiss Family Robinson Favorite Character: King Louie Favorite Park: Animal Kingdom Favorite Ride(s): Expedition Everest, Space Mountain, and Tower of Terror Favorite Resort: Animal Kingdom Lodge Favorite Restaurant(s): Yak & Yeti and Sci Fi Dine in Theater Favorite Non-Ride Activity: Maharajah Jungle Trek and Pangani Forest Trail What- A six day/six night New Years trip with the Plus Dining Plan! Where- Disneys All Star Movies Resort (for awhile youll have to read the report to find out where else we stayed! ) When- December 28, 2011- January 3, 2012 Why- John was coming back from a three month deployment, and we couldnt bear the thought of waiting until summer for another Disney trip! Okay, so theres the basics of our trip! I figured rather than doing it in another post, Id go ahead and explain the title so youll know what to expect with this crazy TR! The Title Explained! First, the Snow White part. Who am I referring to when I say Snow White? Myself, of course! Is it because I think Im a pretty princess? Not exactly actually, Snow White isnt even my favorite princess (Jasmine is). However, I have acquired that nickname at work and its sort of stuck. How did it originate, you ask? Well, when I got back from vacation and went back to work after New Years, one of my coworkers who has a tendency to have a nonstop case of verbal diarrhea (meaning, she never thinks before she speaks) came up to me and we had the following conversation: Her: I thought you said you were going to Disney World over break? Me: Um I did go. It was great! Her: Wait, you went? Then why are you so pale? Arent people supposed get tan when they go to Florida? Me: POKER FACE. So yeah thanks a lot, coworker, for acknowledging my perpetual paleness. I told my other coworkers about this conversation, and it seems like the nickname Snow White is going to be around for a while. Next, the does the creep part! Does anyone here watch SNL? If you do, Im sure you are familiar with the Lonely Island videos. I think theyre absolutely hilarious. Theyre not exactly DIS-appropriate, so I wont spend too much time talking about them, but theres one Lonely Island video called The Creep. Its the song all about being creepy around people and doing this weird dance called The Creep. If youd like to see the video, you can see it HERE. John and watched this video about 1,000 times and doing the creep became a running joke for us. Now, if you remember from my past TRs, I have always had the crappiest camera and it takes really terrible pictures. As an extra Christmas gift before our trip John bought me a new camera that is really nice! I was so excited about it, and I couldnt believe how well it zoomed. I became obsessed with zooming in on things on this trip, and somewhere along the line every time I would zoom in on something we would joke about how creepy I was being, so we started calling zooming in on things doing the creep, and then doing the creep began to encompass a wide variety of weird things that I do. Hence, Snow White doing the creep. Now, the final part: the trip that almost wasnt. This ones easy to explain. We booked this trip in September before Johns deployment, but because of money issues I had to cancel it at the beginning of November. Then John and my mom pulled some strings and surprised me by telling me the trip was back on at the end of November. After that, however, it became unclear when John would be coming home from his deployment, so there as about a 50/50 chance that we wouldnt be able to go on out trip. I didnt know FOR SURE that I was going until CHRISTMAS EVE- three days before we left! It was nerve-wracking, but Im just so glad we actually got to go! Well, there you have it- my title explained! I think its time to get this trip report started, dont you? So get your knees flexin and your arms T-rexin HERE WE GO!
