Hi everyone! This is my first TR and I'm excited to get it started. If you'd like to hear the backstory of our mini-trip, you can go here. For those of you who aren't interested in reading through 13 pages of ramblings, I'll give you a brief intro. For organizational purposes, here is a Table of Contents for my TR. Departure to BWI Arrival at Coronado Springs Resort Epcot & the Only Ride of My Birthday Dinner at Todd English's bluezoo Breakfast at Kona Entering MNSSHP and Dinner at The Plaza First Rides of the Evening! It's a Small World, after all HalloWishes Boo to You Last Day - Downtown Disney and Goodbye For Now WDW The Cast: Pardon the quality of the pics, they were all pictures from my iPHONE that I took from my blog. Primary Cast Me (Ann) - The WDW fanatic of the bunch. This trip was taken partly to celebrate my birthday on October 17. I turned the big 2-5 and needed to do something to keep my mind off of officially being in my mid-20's. This picture was taken the night of my birthday, right as we were getting ready to go to sleep. DH (Erik) - The not-so-WDW-fanatical one of the bunch. He likes Disney, but could probably take it or leave it. Considering we have a week-long trip scheduled for December, it was a bit difficult getting him to agree to a weekend getaway in October, but it worked. This picture is a sneak-peak into one of the highlights of our trip, MNSSHP. Supporting, Secondary Cast DBil (Alex) - Alex was visiting Florida for a week and agreed to meet us for MNSSHP. He was the cowboy, obviously. DBil's BF (Joe) - Joe is Alex's boyfriend. He was the construction worker. He hates the MK because he thinks it's "for babies," and let's just say this trip didn't change his opinion. He was being a stick in the mud. The Resort: Our original plan this trip was to stay at POP from October 17-19, 09. Then, the fall room-only discount rates came out, so for only $120 per night, I decided that we would upgrade to Coronado Springs Resort. I had read lots of great things about the resort and since Erik didn't enjoy the value resorts in 2007 I thought it would be a nice change of pace. (Review and thoughts on the hotel to come later) The Plan: October 17, 09 - Flight from Baltimore to Orlando. Head over to MK upon arrival. Dinner at Todd English's bluezoo @ 5:00 and then back to MK for Spectro and Wishes that night. October 18, 09 - Breakfast at Kona Cafe. MNSSHP with Alex and Joe @ 4:00. Dinner @ 5:00 at The Plaza Restaurant. Meet up with fellow DISer Karyl (spinetnglr) for HalloWishes and Boo To You parade. October 19, 09 - Downtown Disney. Lunch at Earl of Sandwich. Magical Express pick-up at 3:15.
