    Honestly, making up a name for reservations is a great idea! I think that name is hilarious! Hmm, now I should get to thinking of a good fake name to put down for ressies...

    In Tim's sandwich, is that cranberry sauce and turkey? Looks fabulous!

    Who's going to wait with me in the starting corral on January 13th???? :lmao:

    It sounds like you really enjoyed your time at DTD. And how nice of the CM to take that awesome picture of you guys together. I love that stuff at Disney. :love:
    Too funny about Humperdink. :rotfl:

    Tim sounds like he has quite the sense of humor. I think you mis-stated the pool games story just a little bit though. Tim wasn't the only adult... everybody is a kid at Disney World.:thumbsup2

    It looks like it was a nice relaxing day.

    I know what you mean about missing POP when you stay at POR. I really love POP and I was looking forward to staying there again on our next trip, but we ended up booking CSR. But like you, I'm glad to experience something new.

    Humperdink! :lmao::rotfl2:

    That's awesome. Love Tim's sense of humor. And don't beat yourself up over the Hawaiian BBQ. I order that one every time--it's awesome!

    Thank you :goodvibes

    I've already made Tim promise we will have EoS when we go in September, those sandwiches are sooo good :thumbsup2

    The rest day was much needed, otherwise we would have kept running around exhausted...its so nice to see the other parts of Disney :goodvibes

    The Holiday sandwich is soo good, but the Hawaiian BBQ is always a favorite of mine. I wish they would open a EoS near us at home!

    He is right and I have learned not to embarass too easily :rotfl:

    I am dreaming of that Holiday sandwich...we went in October last year, I am praying they have it in September when we go this year!!

    We haven't missed our name in a crowded restaurant yet, so maybe he is right :rotfl:

    It was so yummy, it has turkey, stuffing, and cranberry sauce! Its like Thanksgiving in a sandwich :thumbsup2

    I know!! Are you doing the full marathon again? I bet the bling next year is going to be awesome and I heard they changed the route around a little! I wish I could do it again!

    He is something else thats for sure!! :rotfl:

    You're right, we are all kids at Disney World!! Tim couldn't pass up games either :goodvibes

    We were actually between CSR and POR, Its too bad we can't afford to try all the different resorts!

    I know what you mean, its funny reading other reports and seeing some of the same photo spots!! I love those Potato Heads, Pop is such a fun resort :goodvibes

    He is a funny guy...he keeps me entertained at all times :goodvibes I'm glad to loan him out for free too :rotfl:

    After our relaxing morning and afternoon we got ready for dinner at ‘Ohana. We took a bus over to MK and a monorail over to the Poly. This was Tim’s first time eating there and I had been raving about it for a while so he had high expectations!

    [​IMG]

    I love the noodles and side items more than the meat and Tim enjoyed it all! And of course BREAD PUDDING!! YUM! Served with a ton of ice cream

    [​IMG]

    The lady who walks around and sings, I cannot remember her name for the life of me, she was there that evening entertaining. I love her she cracks me up for some reason. I had Tim grab us some leis and she gave Tim a little kiss on the cheek…uh oh watch out for that lady :rotfl:

    [​IMG]

    We ordered some lapu lapus at the end of our meal, we were planning on heading to the Poly beach to watch Wishes after dinner and just relax. Obligatory picture of us with our drinks!

    [​IMG]

    We made our way down to the Poly beach and found a nice bench swing to ourselves and a great view straight across from the castle.

    [​IMG]

    We sat down and Tim had asked me what my favorite moment of the trip had been so far. I went on and on about the Halloween party, and other moments. I finally took a breath and I asked him what his favorite moment had been. He said to me "right now" and he got down on one knee in the sand and pulled out a beautiful ring!! (I still can't seem to get a good pic of it, my camera isnt the best)

    [​IMG]

    He asked if I would marry him...it was sooo sweet and I was very surprised :goodvibes I can’t believe he made it all the way through over 5 days of vacation keeping it a secret!

    Come to find out he had that moment planned since July :goodvibes He is usually not good at keeping secrets at all, I can’t believe he surprised me
    I am not sure if I said yes or not, but I grabbed the ring, cried, and was so excited!! We called our parents, who already knew since he had told them all beforehand…but were very excited to hear all about it still!

    We settled in and enjoyed the water pagent and Wishes! It was such a wonderful evening.

    [​IMG]

    After the fireworks we headed back to POP! for the night. When I opened the door to our room I was again shocked:

    He had the Disney florist set up this surprise while we were out having dinner and watching fireworks :goodvibes

    It was just a great day, such a great surprise!!

    Tim and I actually met through the DISboards…so its great to be able to share our special moment with everyone on here! Once we got home we started planning our wedding right away. We are getting married this September at the Swan and Dolphin resort…I am beyond excited!! Its going to be a small Disney wedding and we are going on the Fantasy for our honeymoon followed by a few days at POR (our first time staying there) in the Royal Rooms

    This story is just as good the second time around! :love:


    Since I read your wedding planning journal, I knew at the beginning of this update that the night of Ohana's was the proposal, but it was still so sweet to read. It so awesome and so fitting that you two met on the DISboards, got engaged at WDW, are getting married at the Swan, and taking a Disney cruise. You'll have to write a report on either this thread or the wedding one letting us all know how it went, because I'm sure it's going to be fantastic! :wizard:

    What an amazing proposal story! I love it!!! :love:
    He did such an amazing job with picking a great moment and having the room decorated.

    (I'm actually running the Goofy in 2013. Crazy, huh???)

    What a wonderful engagement story! Tim did such an amazing job! And I'm totally impressed he made it 5 days into the trip! Side note - DH and I got engaged at POP on the first night of our first trip to Disney together (and his first Disney trip ever!) because he was too excited and nervous to wait! We went to Kona Cafe and the Polynesian beach the next night to celebrate! So anyway, it's a very special spot for us as well... as is the Swan!! :goodvibes
