Can you tell I'm excited?!?!?!?! Pre-TR (October 1-15th 2009) The trip has begun!!!

(Cross Posted to Main TR Board)

Hey guys!

Well, I tried and tried to leave it until later to start my PTR but I jsut couldn't wait anymore!!!!

I'm Victoria (23, from London, UK) and my fiance and I are off to WDW this October!

Here is a photo of us from our Januray trip to Disneyland Paris.



During the trip Jack proposed to me in the castle, while we were the only two people in the park!!

Needless to say we have convinced my parents that a WDW wedding is the wedding for us. So this trip is our first planning trip!

I haven't been to WDW since 1993 when I was 7, and Jack has never been, so really it'll be a completely new experience for both of us!! And I'm going to make sure to get him a 'first trip' pin!

I booked a couple of weeks ago, after spending weeks trying to decide between CSR and POFQ, in the end FQ won and now I am 100% happy wth my decision and really feel like I've made the right choice as we want to relax as well while we're away and it looks so peaceful and romantic.

I can't to start planning properly, and would love some advice from all you WDW experts!

Speak soon, Torsie xxxx

Ooh! A PTR! Hi Torsie

You will love POFQ - it's a beautiful resort, and we loved it there! We liked the fact that it's very compact and you can walk easily to the pool, food court, or wherever in a matter of minutes! I would definitely stay there again and I'm going to use it for one of my room blocks

Your dates are my favorite time to go. You will love POFQ it is lovely especially that you can take the boat from the hotel to downtown disney in the evenings and it is truly a beautiful ride and saves getting the buses.

Looking forward to hearing more.
