Fifteen things from a 1st timer (PTR)

I plan to do my PTR and TR in list format of "15 things....xyz" Hence the title. I guess that was obvious already and didn't need pointing out. How's THAT for writing skills. Apparently I spent more time looking out the window during English Comp than actually paying attention.

The Cast:
Me. (Again, DUH. Like I'd type a PTR if I wasn't even going on the trip.) Age: 20-something.
WDW History: We went one time, for one day when I was a baby. I wasn't even a year old yet. So basically, I've never been.

DH. Age: Also 20-something.
WDW History: Went as a 9yr old and again as a teenager.

DS. Age: 6
WDW History: Has never been

DS. Baby
He actually died this June, I was 9 mos preggo and fine and all of a sudden, he was gone. We've been planning this trip for awhile and always assumed he'd be with us. He won't be with us physically, but he will be in our hearts on the trip so I am mentioning him here.


Details: Leaving Oct 17, 2009 (that is NEXT MONTH people!) to stay 6 nights in Pop Century. Vising MK and Epcot. Skipping the other parks and hope to do them on future trips.

15 Favorite Characters/Movies of us, the 1st timers:

1. Beauty & The Beast. How can you NOT love Chip?!
2. Cars. Strictly because of the 2 minivans that go through town, lost, and one has a bumper sticker that says "Nice Butte"
3. Minnie Mouse
4. Donald Duck--he is so funny when he gets angry!
5. Heuy, Looey, and Dewey. Am I the only one here that used to watch Duck Tales??
6. Buzz Lightyear
7. Mr. Potato Head from the Toy Story movies.
8. Tinkerbell
9. Winnie the Pooh.
10. Monster's Inc
11. Lilo & Stitch
12. Finding Nemo
13. Abu from Alladin
14. Genie from Alladin
15. And of course, M-I-C-K-E-Y M-O-U-S-E!

Up next:
15 Things I want to eat at WDW, as well as a list of our ADRs.

I don't think anyone reads this yet, but I'm charging ahead anyway.

15 Things the 1st timers want to eat:
1. Pineapple Dole Whip Float
2. Orange Dole Whip Float
3. Churros
4. Mickey Waffles
5. Croissant-plain
6. Croissant-chocolate
7. Schoolbread
8. Pretzel roll/bread
9. Popcorn
10. Zebra Domes
11. Carrot Cake
12. Bread Pudding
13. Frozen cokes
14. Club Cool flavors (even going to try Beverly! )
15. Funnel cake

Gee whiz, sounds like my next list would have to be "15 pieces of clothing that won't fit after this trip."

But really, up next: 15 Things I Want to Waste Money On

First off, I'm very sorry for your loss. I hope your family is doing well.

Your six year old is going to love Disney!!! There is just so much for him to enjoy!!!

Ok - I've been to Disney over 30 times and I have never heard of a - Orange Dole Whip Float. Where does one acquire such things????????

You have me hooked... maybe your can teach me more.

One more thing... was there a "Chip" in Sleeping Beauty too? Or do you mean 'Beauty and the Beast'?

Thank you, and we are hanging in there. Some days are harder than others. At the risk of getting too religious and breaking some dis rule, I will just simply say we have faith we'll see our baby again. But it is very hard to live without him on earth.

Also, I am a total dork, I totally was THINKING "Beauty and the Beast" but my fingers typed the wrong thing. Will have to go back and edit that!

And I saw people on the dis here talk about getting orange flavored dole whips, which sounds good so I'm going to try to find one!

Thanks for reading.

I like your trip report format! Your family is going to have a great time. What about Tonga Toast for things to eat? I keep hearing about it, but haven't tried that myself yet. Maybe I need to make a "15 Things" list for our trip, too!

June

15 Things I Want to Waste Money On:
1. The mickey hand oven mitt. Have you seen it?! OH my gosh it is so cute!
2. MNSSHP tickets (already bought!)
3. Photopass preordered CD
4. Paying extra for the photos they take at our character meals (as long as they are halfway decent)
5. T-Rex "build-a-dino"
6. Dipped pretzels at Goofy's. Yes I know, no longer a SC for the toppings. But screw that. I want 3 dipped in milk chocolate, butterfingers, oreos, and pecans. We'll just go OOP for that.
7. Notepads.
8. Pens. (I'm a sucker for stationary stuff)
9. Tshirts and Sweatshirts
10. GForce *ANYTHING* for our son for Christmas
11. Pajamas!
12. Halloween and Christmas Decorations
13. Antenna toppers
14. Flags/statues/etc for the lawn/garden
15. Mickey ears for all of us (even our littlest baby who passed away) with our names on the back!!

Also, I realized I didn't include the ADR's previously so here is where we're going:
We're on QSDP and are paying out of pocket to do just a few character meals:
Garden Grill-Dinner
Chef Mickeys-Dinner
Ohana-Breakfast

Up Next: 15 Things I Would Totally Have Screwed up if not for the Dis....

When did they take the "toppings" off of the snack credit for Goofy's candy co? We were there in feb and were able to use it.

I too, am sorry for your loss, and hope your faith keeps you strong.

I love the way you're doing your ptr, with the 15 things list, very clever.

I've never seen an orange dole whip, but there is (or was) a frozen orange juice/vanilla ice cream swirl available at the Sunshine Tree Terrace. It was very, very yummy, I just don't know if it's still there. That might be what you're thinking of.

Awww, I'm so sorry for the loss of your son. We are going to Disney in December in memory of my Dad. Maybe we should start a "Healing" thread. I think there are a lot of us trying to find some healing at Disney.

I'm subscribing and can't wait to follow along your journey.

I cannot wait to hear more about your trip. You are going to have a blast. I think it is wonderful that you are keeping the memory of your DS alive, he will always be with you.

Thank you, and yes I think that Orange Swirl thing is what I am thinking of.

As far as the toppings, it has been since free dining started. The mickey heads with lots of toppings are gone (you can get one predipped, but can not choose lots of toppings), same with pretzel rods, and there is some indication that the big oreo cookie thing may also not be included anymore.
