So I need a lot of positive energy and a little bit of Disney magic coming my way as I am about to take the plunge...After 5 years with my boyfriend we have NEVER once been to Disney world. Shame I know, my BF wasn't originally crazy about Disney. I think he was just scared because his mom never took him as a child. After thousands of photos, park maps, planning DVD's, YOU TUBE videos, and showing him how amazing the monorail is (he was especially fascinated with how quiet it was when it flew overhead LOL) I have him hooked!!! Things have really come together for us the past year and I can think of no better way to celebrate than together in WDW. We have gone on many road trips but never a REAL vacation i.e. a week off of work...It's about time...The best part is, he doesn't know it yet. I mean we have discussed going, like which resort we would like to stay at and such. We decided on Port Orleans French Quarters because the new refurb just stole our hearts. Not to mention an absolute steal! Best part is he doesn't know I am about to book a vacation for us. I've been stashing away every penny I earned like a busy little squirrel, now I finally have enough to make my deposit. I think I will tell him on Valentine's Day which is actually 2 days before his 28th birthday. I bought a big metallic purple gift bag with a gold bow that has a curly ribbon tail that looks like a sparkling firework, going with Mardi Gras colors. When he opens it a Disney balloon will float up and out of the bag with a letter attached to it and some Mardi Gras beads for fun effect. This is a celebration, so of course there is a pair of Mardi Gras masks for each of us!!! I can't wait to tell him we're actually going.
