I love the TSM line. I swear I find something new in there every time.
YES Starring rolls! and waiting in the actual TSM line is a little less bad because of the atmosphere !

Finally MK!

Chapter Six: Finally MK!

Friday, December 7, 2012


We headed back to the Beach Club, changed and I was so pumped for Magic Kingdom! I usually make MK the first park on any trip but it was physically impossible on such a short trip this time.

A very kind gentleman took our picture in front of the amazing gingerbread house!



This was the first time we were using Disney bus transportation this trip, yay!

I get so excited seeing the top of the castle from far away! We made our way toward the entrance and I got SOOO excited seeing the Magic Kingdom all Christmasy! The other parks are great all decked out, but MK is the best of them all!







It was kinda glum out but that wasn't stopping me!

Our first ride was pirates then we did the mountains, it started to brighten up!





I absolutely positively could not get a Be Our Guest reservation for this day . I was up bright and early that dreaded day and waited 90 minutes on the phone for nothing, no worries though! We wanted to see what the wait for lunch was and it was two and a half hours . With this being our only day at MK we decided to try Gaston's! We got two pork shanks and a LeFou's Brew and we were very satisfied with our lunch! They were both REALLY GOOD! And we got a nice little table in the corner of Gaston's Tavern despite the fact it was pretty busy !











We finished up our lunch and were so stuffed! I definitely recommend Gaston's Tavern if you don't want to wait for BOG!

One of our favorite things to do in MK is sit right next to the Walt/Mickey statue on the benches and people watch. We get popcorn and drinks and just sit, take in the sights, and watch how funny people are.









We sat here for a good hour and a half, then I wanted to go look for the Castle Disney Alex and Ani bracelet!

Up Next: My Christmas tree cupcake and searching for my Alex and Ani!

Loving your TR!!!

My husband proposed to me at Epcot. He likes to take all the credit, but I did all the planning for the trip, all he did was bring along the ring. Plus he hate Disney so he gets no special Disney proposal credit.

Congratulations though and excited to see how he made it work

The proposal!

Chapter Seven: The Proposal!

Friday, December 7, 2012


After people watching for about an hour or so, we headed over to the Agrabah Bazaar to find my Alex and Ani bracelet. Unfortunately, we could only find the mickey head one and I was looking for the castle one! The CM said they would definitely have them at the emporium, so we headed back toward Main Street.

I made a quick decision to go to the Main Street Bakery and get a cupcake. I was hoping they had similar ones to Starring Rolls, but instead I saw a Christmas tree one that I liked! The one I got was a little messed up on one side; and then it got especially messed up when the CM abruptly pushed the tray it was on and it fell over...then she just picked it up and didn't give me a new one or anything !! Do they even wash those trays? Oh well, hakuna matata, it was pretty funny though!


I rotated the cupcake for the best photographic side lol.

While we were in the Main Street Bakery, Brett's dad called. They chatted for a little bit, then Brett had to go to the bathroom. We made our way toward the entrance. I waited outside eating my cupcake ! Brett was in there for a really long time. I just figured he had to poop or something LOL . He came out and said the line was really long.

We then took some pictures of the Mickey's Christmas Carol window displays, which is one of my favorite Holiday specials ! It's only a half hour special but it's too perfect!




Love Scrooge's face in this one, it's truly an "OMG" haha!


TOO Cute!

Then we went into the emporium and I was on a mission to find that castle Alex and Ani! We walked almost all the way through the store, then I asked a CM who said they were a little bit back. I found it and I was SO EXCITED! It's too perfect:



We came out of the emporium and were walking down Main Street. Then I wanted to go on the Haunted Mansion, so I was walking pretty fast. Brett was then like "I have to get my camera out," and he got down on his knee right in front of Casey's Corner. I continued to walk pretty fast, not thinking he would stop in the middle of the street and take his camera out. I was pretty far ahead of him then he yelled "HEY!" LOL, I had to turn around. I came back thinking to myself: UGH c'mon I just wanna go on the haunted mansion, you slow poke!

He had a box in his hand, he was smiling ear to ear, opened the box, and asked "Will you marry me?" My first reaction was "...No" as in "No, you're not really doing this right now are you!?!??" And then I answered YES and started balling . I literally was in such a state of shock! I was so happy! I couldn't believe I was actually proposed to in my favorite place on earth by my real life prince charming!!

As we were hugging I heard a loud yelling "WOO!" I was thinking to myself wow everyone must be so excited for us! I turn around, and my WHOLE FAMILY, Brett's WHOLE FAMILY, and his BEST MAN and his BEST MAN'S GIRLFRIEND, are all there! They were hiding in the emporium watching everything! I was SO OVERWHELMED by everything, I just kept crying! I felt like I was gonna throw up!!! Literally the most magical moment of my entire life . I still cannot comprehend most because of how amazing it was! I don't know what I was more surprised about: the engagement or the most important people in my life being in Disney!

Here are some pictures that our families took:













Our families got us the bride and groom hats and the Just Engaged pins!





What a guy! I feel so blessed to have him .

And of course, here's the ring:



Up Next: More Photos, Sharing the News, and MVMCP!

It's the same for me! I planned everything for the trip too! Although Brett does get credit because he brought along the ring AND organized all the families to come! And thank you !
