I have that book too! Just be aware... some of the stuff is outdated. So if you can't find something, chances are it isn't there any longer... but still, full of cool info. My DH and I try to find new stuff from that book (as well as Hidden Mickeys) and call it our "path to enlightenment" Enjoy!

Disney lovers

My husband & I went to Disney in October 2003 for our honeymoon, we stayed at CBR and we loved it! When we checked in last time, at POR, we got "anniversary" buttons at the desk. We saved them and will be wearing them again this year when we go in 85 days! Just ask when you check in, they have tons of buttons for every occasion!

Bringing back lots of memories of our honeymoon in Sep 09!

Re the buttons they were available at Guest Relations in MK when I went in Jan but unfortunately not been since then.

Just wanted to give you a tip about the registry and dining plan... I know it might sound very cheeky but I actually put lots of meals on our registry even though we had the dining plan. I wanted to make sure that we did everything that people bought for us so this way I knew we would do it but it also meant that we had lots of credit to use for other things that people wouldn't have chosen from the registry - like my 2 year supply of soap from Basin White!

It also meant that we had whatever we wanted at the meals - like wine etc and didn't worry that it was over the plan allowances. We also did quite a few 2 credit meals (CRT, Cali Grill etc) and people are happy to choose those from your registry as very memorable things to buy. This may have worked better for us being in the UK and lots of people not knowing about DDP!!

Also photopass is a must! I treasure our honeymoon album as much (maybe more) than our wedding one! We are both on all of the pictures rather than each taking pictures of each other or bothering other people. We stayed at GF and had quite a few pics done at the photopass portrait stop when on our way out for meals. I have these framed at home and EVERYONE thinks that they were from a professional shoot (which I wouldn't bother with at Disney - takes up too much time and you'll be sick of it after posing at wedding!)

I honestly spent more time planning for our honeymoon than our big church wedding but loved every minute - of the planning and the trip! We went back in Jan this year with family and it just was no where near as special - partly because it was just a holiday but also because I didn't plan as well (too many opinions!) so make the most of it!

I am so glad you said the part about the dining plan and the registry. I was going to put some dinners on the registry but thought it might look weird with the dining plan as welll. But your point is exactly what I was thinking.

I am so sad they no longer have the buttons. There is a web site that I found them on, but I dont know if it is worth spending the money. Might wait until its closer to the date to see if they have anything else coming out for newlyweds.

And you are right, I knew everything I wanted for the wedding and had those plans set. I have spent more time looking up Disney things and honeymoon stuff than wedding things!

I'm so upset the wedding registry is being redone. I just registered and started setting up our web site. Now we have to wait and re-register because everything is changing. We would only be able to use it until December, and we really don't need it until after that. I hope the improvements are really good.
