Joe and I took our first Disney vacation as a couple at Walt Disney World resort. We stayed at the Grand Floridian Club Level and went ALL out. Joe purchased the Platinum Disney Dining Package for us and we stayed for 6 days. This is the vacation that was a total splurge! It was Joe’s first trip to Disney and we wanted to experience everything. We celebrated his 28th birthday.
Joe and I returned to the Grand Floridian resort at Disney World for my 21st birthday. I was treated like a Princess and enjoyed the royal treatment for my birthday. It was the “Year of a Million Dreams” and we started pin collecting (long story about that). We enjoyed the Deluxe Dining Plan and stayed for 5 days.
Now married, Joe and I returned to Disney World for my first half marathon, Run Disney’s Princess Half Marathon. We purchased a “Magic Your Way” package 3 weeks prior to our vacation since we were busy buying a home. We stayed at Contemporary Hotel Club Level with Lake view. We both participated in the Royal Family 5k and then I completed the Princess Half Marathon.
We became DVC Members in April of 2014. We stayed at Bay Lake Towers, but purchased DVC at Grand Floridian as our “home resort”. We went to Disney World for Expedition Everest 5k Challenge with Run Disney. This is the year the we truly become full-blown Disney Geeks, you can call it our obsession! Joe and I both ran the 5k challenge and we stayed for 4 days. It was our first trip away from JP.
This was my first GIRL’S TRIP and my first time being away from JP without Joe. We traveled for the Walt Disney World Half Marathon and stayed at Pop Century resort. We stayed for 4 days and bought the quick-service dining plan. It was so much fun and full of wine!
This was our first trip to Disney World staying off of the Monorail system. We stayed for 4 days at Animal Kingdom Lodge resort. We enjoyed a 1 bedroom suite in Jambo house with a Savanna view. I ran Run Disney’s Glass Slipper Challenge. We stayed 4 days, using our DVC points, and purchased the deluxe dining plan. Then we took the Magical Express to our first Disney Cruise Line vacation.
After the Glass Slipper Challenge, we boarded Disney’s Dream for our first Disney Cruise Line vacation. We stayed in a state room with a verandah (level 7). Joe and I ran the Castaway Challenge 5k on Castaway Cay. It was 4 day trip to the Bahamas. It was an amazing way to finish an epic Disney trip.
This was JP’s first trip to Disney World! We set off on a quick trip to WDW to get his first haircut at the Harmony Barber Shop. We only stayed 2 days, so we opted for convenience at the Contemporary Hotel. We spent an entire day at Disney Springs and another at the Magic Kingdom. It was the perfect way to introduce him to Walt Disney World. We used our DVC points.
This was another’s girls trip to run the Wine and Dine Half Marathon at WDW. We stayed at Port Orleans Riverside for an extended weekend. This was also my first experience with the Wine and Dine Festival at Epcot and the 20th anniversary of the festival.
For an entire week, we stayed at the Grand Floridian Villas with extended family. This was our first large group traveling experience at Disney World. We celebrated the completion of my first marathon with Run Disney. JP finally got to experience all 4 parks at WDW too. We used our DVC points for this trip and purchased the Deluxe Dining Plan.
