**NEW 3/8! "We're The Original Boy Band, With Songs We Never Sing" A February 2013 TR

Welcome one and all to my very first trip report!!!!



That's me, your ghost host, skipper, snake wrangler, crocodile hunter, and most importantly, your guide, Dayna. I'm 21 years old, and according to my Twitter description, I'm a former WDW cast member and forever Disney fanatic. And that sure sums me up in a nutshell. I've been going to WDW ever since I was three years old - and I'll be going until I'm 90 years old, believe me. Since I'm not very well known on the Dis, I'll highlight some of my favorites.

Favorite Attraction: Expedition Everest
Favorite Character(s): Stitch, Belle, The Beast, Rapunzel, Flynn Rider and Gaston
Favorite Quick Service: Cosmic Ray's Starlight Cafe
Favorite Table Service: A three way tie between Be Our Guest, 'Ohana and California Grill
Favorite Show: Festival of the Lion King
Favorite Park: Magic Kingdom
Favorite Snack: Dole Whip or a Mickey Premium Ice Cream Bar
Favorite Resort(s): A three way tie between The Contemporary, The Polynesian and Port Orleans French Quarter

This trip was short, we only stayed two nights, but it was exceptionally magical, but what else would you expect? We stayed at The Contemporary, in a theme park view room, and it was absolutely fantastic. We were lucky enough to be in a renovated room, and that was amazing in itself. It was also, in my opinion, one of the best Limited Time Magic offerings, while we were there. I was SO excited, and I hope I can describe the experience so that all of you can feel the excitement that I felt.

My partner in crime for this trip (and all trips!) was my Mom, Tracey. I don't have any pictures of her currently, but just imagine, okay?

I'm going to be taking inspiration from some of my personal favorite trip report writers, so I hope you don't mind if I use your TR strategies to make my TR. (I'm looking at you Jess: Disneyfreak508, Kristen: Disneyfreak616, Dani: danimaroo, Marissa: marDgreen88, Lia: __disneygirl and Katt: katt789)

So, if everyone is all neat and pretty, then on with the show!~

Coming Up: Day One - "Are We There Yet?"

Thanks Dani, I am SO glad you're here! And you are more than welcome for the shout out, I mean it! For us only being there for two nights, I took close to 500 pictures!

I'm SO jealous you were a Jungle Cruise Skipper - that's one of my ultimate dream jobs!!! I'm glad you're here, and hopefully you can get some inspiration from my first trip report for yours!

Ahhh we always do a monorail resort tour every trip! It is a tradition that we visit each resort, so I loved that you did that!

I love both the Polynesian and Grand Floridian; they are both wonderful resorts. I have fond memories from our honeymoon of staying at the Grand Floridian; it was absolutely amazing. I love when they play music in the lobby and little girls in their princess dresses dance around... It is too cute!

Celebrate the Magic is AMAZING. Seriously. I can't wait to go back and watch it again!

Looking forward to more updates!

Hi there Dayna! I love the excitement and enthusiasm of your 1st TR! We were at the CR/BLT in late Feb too! Your renovated room is wonderful! Those throw pillows are so cute. I'm following along with this one!
