We have to book Be Our Guest when?!?-Sept PTR Updated 8/29

Helloooooooo



Id like to thank you for clicking on this wonderful PTR!!!

I'm mainly a lurker on the boards but I'm going Disney crazy so I decided to make a PTR and have hopes that someone might read it.
Ok on with the show!

The 4 Ws

WHO:


That’s me! Chrystine-Chryssy for short I'm 24 and I'm the mastermind behind this wonderful trip. I live for Disney like most of us here. I've been 3 times before but this will be 2nd time staying on-site. We went last year for a quick 3 day trip and stayed at AOA-Nemo!!!!
My Disney Favorites:
Park-DHS
Movie-Finding Nemo (of course)
Ride- TSMM and ToT
Character-Minnie Mouse and Belle





This would be my wonderful boyfriend Joe!! Hes 29 and a crazy Disney freak like me, so happy I found him. He planned our last vacation and I wasn’t allowed to know anything about it, so he let me do everything for this trip. He has been two other times, last year and then back when he was a child.
Joe’s Disney Favorites:
Park-Epcot
Movie-Up
Ride-I'm not sure but to take a good guess either Splash or TSMM
Character-Donald Duck

What:
Well a Disney vacation of course! Not celebrating anything on this trip but just going before we can’t afford it anymore when little children come along.

When:
September 9th-15th
Where:
Port Orleans-Riverside

Up next

ADRs
Plans
and maybe a few life updates?

Continued from above!

Chapter Links are below


We will be there for 6 days and 7 nights

This trip was decided last july when we decided 3 days is just not enough for Disney world!!

It was either going to be in may or september. I did all the research and came across the villains party on Sept 13 and boom our disney dream was born!

We will be flying out of Manchester NH at 7:05am and will be arriving in Orlando around 10:30
Havent decided if we are going to put those wonderful yellow tags on our luggage yet. Last year they didnt send them to us in time so we just carried our luggage on. I loved having my luggage with me but to not have to go wait in baggage claim would be wonderful.

Thinking we will be arriving at POR around 12 ish, doing online check in so hopefully our room will be ready and we can go check it out!
We got 5 day tickets with park hoppers, we figured we would have a down day somewhere in the middle of the week so we down run ourselves down

Following along!! I am bummed we are going to be missing the Villain's party by 2 days but we just couldn't squeeze 2 more days off of work out of the trip (we're super grateful we were able to make the extra day work to do MNSSHP!!). Looking forward to hearing all about it though from everyone who is going and can't wait to hear more about your plans!

How we got to September

I hope everyone had a happy 4th

To officially kick off this pre trip report, I suppose I should tell you how this trip happened(because it almost didn’t!)

My bf and I met last march through e-harmony! (highly recommend it) and at the time I had a vacation planned for july to down to Georgia to meet up with my friend. Long story short, my work is fussy with vacation time and my asst manager took my week!!!!! So I had to cancel everything blah blah blah
So I switched to the week after, and I had mentioned to my bf that if I was going to be down south I needed to take a trip down the Disney or universal. This is when my brilliant plan of asking him to come along popped into my head. I wasn’t sure how he’d react seeing how we had only been together for a couple of months, to my surprise he was totally for it! (at that moment I knew he was the one)

So we went down at the end of july for a couple of days had the time of our lives and was sad when it was over. In September of last year DB asked if I wanted to go back sometime. Well of course I do! We sat and talked and I did most/all of the research and we wanted to do late may but my vacation time wasn’t available. So September it was. Deciding on the week was easy….cant do labor day and the week after our vacation is the NASCAR race up here and I have season tickets, so the week in between was perfect.

So that’s how we ended up with Sept 9th-15th plus cheap airfare flying out on a Monday…now I wish our resort decision was that easy but that’s for another post!

Hi, I'm joining in, I'll be there til the 11th

We did ME 5 years ago and it was great! Since you're not getting in too late you don't have to worry about how long your bags take as long as you have anything you might need in your carry-on.

We're also thinking about doing MNSSHP on the 10th, but it's our last night, and we leave early the next morning, so not sure if we should or not.

Welcome!!

We did ME last year but our luggage tags showed up in the mail after we left so we just went and got our luggage. Im pretty sure we will end up using the tags as long as the arrive before we depart again.

MNSSHP is up in the air because of the cost, we are already paying an arm and a leg for the park tickets themselves that I'm not sure i want to shell out another 65 pp

Oh sorry, by ME I meant with the luggage tags/bag drop off... does that have a separate name? Hmm!

Yeah, it's partly the cost for us too. I don't care about the candy, but I really want to see the parade! Although it's obviously not worth $65pp, right?
