Our Anniversary Trip! Day Eight is Complete!

Hello everyone! This will be my first trip report. I'm so excited to share my trip with all of you! I guess I'll start now with a pre-trip report so you guys can get some backround info on this trip. I apologize if you also are members of TGM because I will be posting this there also. First off, the cast of characters...

Me18, Sam--I have been to Disney more times then I really know, probably about once almost every year since I was three. I have grown up immersed in Disney and am now obsessed! Disney movies are my favorite and I love going to Disney World. Eventually I would love to have a Disney Wedding and my goal is to go to every Disney park in the World. Magic Kingdom is my favorite of the parks.

DBF18, Cory--The Love of My Life. Not as Disney obssesed as I am but does really like Disney. Has watched more Disney movies since we've been together. Has gone to Disney World in the past and has really liked it. OK with a Disney wedding as long as there are no characters. Really excited about going on this trip.

A little bit of backround on the two of us and this trip to get to know us more!

Cory and I met when we both decided to go to a specialized high school. In order to get in you have to take a test. We met as freshmen in the same class, although our whole freshmen class was only 26 people. From the moment I saw him, I knew that I wanted to be with him. After a while of getting to know eachother he asked me out in the spring of freshmen year. We just graduated high school a few weeks ago and still together. We have been together for a little over 3 years now and never had any issues. We know that we want to spend the rest of our lives together which is why we are also going to the same college in Tampa, Florida (only about 2 hours from Disney!! Woo Hoo!!). Springbreak 2005 we went to Disney with his family for 2 days. We went to Magic Kingdom and Epcot only for a few hours. It was one of the best vacations I've been on. We decided last year that we wanted to take our first trip together before college. Of course we decided on Disney World. So now after waiting over a year we have 15 days left!! Yes, only 15!!! We can barely contain ourselves.

I'll leave you with that for now. If you'd like I'll post some pictures of us in the next post.

Lunch at Tusker House
Go to Animal Kingdom Lodge for Dinner at 7:00 at Boma
Return to Animal Kingdom for EMH

Tues July 17

Lunch at 12:30 at Prime Time Cafe
Go to Epcot for other half of day
Dinner at 6:30 at San Angel Inn

Wed July 18
Go to Magic Kingdom for our last full day

You guys are soooooooo cute!

Your plans sound good to me!! Are you doing the dining plan? I know you will love the Poly, we did- its a bit out of our price range but I MUST visit there at least once every trip! It's beautiful! If you end up getting seated late or eating slow try and stick around and head to their beach when the fireworks are starting at MK, and the water parade is really neat too!

I think the DDP is soooooo worth it! If you end up with extra snack credits (we usually do) then try out Goofy's in DTD for create ur own snacks for a credit each- we brought them home for our friends and they loved them!

StarDrifter: Didn't you just love Paris in Vegas?? It was so awesome..we had a window seat so we could watch the water show at the Belagio.

Anywho I'm glad you all like the places we picked and the Goofy place in DTD sounds great. My DBF is into the make it yourself stuff, he can't wait to make a lightsaber. lol. This is my first trip thingy so I really don't know what else to talk about until my trip lol. If you have any more questions or advice please let me know. BTW is construction at the Contemporary really seen? We're in the South Wing and I would hate it to disrupt anything. Thanks guys!!

Hey everyone!! Only a week to go!! I can't believe it's so close!! So we are booked for a garden view room in the south wing and my boyfriend just asked if there is any way to be upgraded to a tower MK view. I read on another post that they had the wing room and were upgraded when they arrived! Does anyone know how we can get this??
I'm trying to make a list of things I need now to see what I have to pick up...anything you guys would suggest?? Talk to you all soon!!!
