Welcome to the Adventures of Miss Potts' Fall Trip Report! I'm excited to finally be starting this... as this is my very first trip report! I cannot wait to recount all the details of my trip and share them with all of you! If you want to get to know me better and see the planning that went into this trip, I completed a PTR which you can read here: LINK If you have read it already, thanks for following me over here!! Now, onto the details.... Who, What, Where, When, and Why Who This trip was just DH and myself! About Me - Miss Potts aka Amy I'm 28 and the Disney fan in this couple... I have been for as long as I can remember. In 5th grade, after a trip to Disney, I came home and announced to my family that I was giving up on becoming a ballerina and now wanted to be a Hotel Manager in Disney when I grow up! I'm a former CP from Spring 2005 and I currently work as a Front Desk Manager. My disboards name "Miss Potts" comes from my love for Beauty and the Beast. I even wore a Mrs. Potts costume for Halloween in college! My favorite Halloween costume ever! Favorite Park - Magic Kingdom Favorite Ride - Tower of Terror Favorite Attraction - Carousel of Progress Favorite Hotel - Disney's Polynesian Resort Favorite Restaurant - Le Cellier (does this change on our trip?!?! Foreshadowing!) Favorite Snack - Popcorn! I swear the popcorn in Disney is just amazing!!! Favorite Character - hard to choose: Mickey, Mary Poppins, Belle, Mrs. Potts (obvi) Favorite Disney Movie - again, hard to choose but Mary Poppins & Beauty and the Beast About my DH - Scott DH is 27 and not a natural born Disney lover, but I think I've been winning him over trip by trip. I find him talking about Disney positively unprovoked now and then and I like to say that my DH "drank the juice". He is a Probation Officer (former mason) and loves golf and hunting. My DH loves to eat, so I can get him to agree to a Disney trip as long as it falls over the Food and Wine Festival. Easy enough! Favorite Park - Animal Kingdom Favorite Ride - Rock 'n' Roller Coaster Favorite Attraction - Safari or Indiana Jones Stunt Spectacular! Favorite Hotel - BLT... loves the smell of the Contemporary Lobby Favorite Restaurant - O'hana (this might change for him toooooo) Favorite Snack - Grilled Lamb Chop at F&W Favorite Character - for a classic character, he loves Donald Duck... for more mainstream he really likes Woody and Buzz Favorite Disney Movie - Really depends on the day. Toy Story, Finding Nemo, and The Brave Little Toaster (awww) What A trip to Disney! When September 26 through October 3, 2013 Where We stayed at Disney's Polynesian Resort!!! My favorite resort! I thought it would instantly become DH's favorite too... but it didn't. Why Does there really need to be a why when it comes to Disney trips?!! NO! But, there usually is... For this trip, it's mainly because we had an AP this year and I wanted to maximize it. Commercial Break to plug AP's: We bought our AP last October in 2012 and were able to use it on that trip, again in February 2013 when my mom, sister, and I ran the Princess Half Marathon, and now again for this trip. We definitely got our moneys worth! It was a last minute decision before our trip last October and I'm so glad we did it! We got fantastic discounts on rooms in February AND with Tables in Wonderland we've been able to save so much! Back to our regularly scheduled programming: So in addition to our AP's, we got a fantastic rate on the room, AND we have airline miles too!!! BESIDES all that, we do have another real reason for the trip. We've decided that we are in the position and ready to start putting our vacation money into other areas - like building a house and starting a family. So after this trip, Disney will be on hold for a few years... I can't believe I'm even typing that! We'll see if that actually stays the case! I said it before, and I'll say it again! Thanks for joining me and reading my trip report!
