And They Lived Happily Ever After....Our Disneymoon Trip Report..FINALLY started!

This is my first attempt at a pre-trip report so bear with me. Hi, I'm Jessica and I am 29 years old. I live with my husband Jake in Michigan. This will be our second trip to Walt Disney World together, but of course this trip is extra special as it is our honeymoon. We just got married a week ago and are taking our honeymoon Sept. 25 - Oct. 4. Our last trip was during the F&W Festival and we had so much fun that we knew we had to plan our trip during that time again.

The Plan:

Thursday Sept. 25
Depart DTW at 7:57 p.m. and arrive to MCO at 10:28 p.m. Hop on the Magical Express to stay at All Star Sports for the night.

Friday Sept. 26
Check out of All Star Sports and have bell services transfer our luggage to the Boardwalk Villas where we will be the remainder of the trip. The plan is to be at Animal Kingdom all day.
ADR's
Yak & Yeti for lunch and Sanaa for dinner
FP+
Kilimanjaro Safari, Kali River Rapids, and Finding Nemo (have not seen this, but had to try it this time as you all have given such great reviews of it!)

Saturday Sept. 27
Planning on this being our only day at Hollywood Studios unless we want to try and head there in the morning another day.
ADR's
Beaches and Cream for lunch and Yachtsman Steakhouse for dinner
FP+
Tower of Terror, Star Tours, and TSMM

Sunday Sept. 28
Sleeping in this day and going to the ESPN Club for lunch and to watch some football to appease the Hubby...plus I will have to make sure my fantasy football league is kicking butt again. This night we have MNSSHP which I am super excited about.
Dinner ADR at Kona Cafe

Monday Sept. 29
Magic Kingdom and Epcot
ADR
California Grill for dinner
FP+
7DMT, Buzz Lightyear, Peter Pan
All the FP are before 2:00 so we will most likely head to Epcot to graze the F&W Fest for lunch

Tuesday Sept. 30
Magic Kingdom and Epcot again
ADR
Be Our Guest for dinner
FP+
BTM, Meet Cinderella & Rapunzel, and Meet Anna & Elsa
Similar to Monday all the FP are before 2:00 so again head to Epcot for F&W Fest again for lunch or do a CS at MK.

Wednesday Oct. 1
Epcot
ADR
Via Napoli for dinner as of now, might switch this to lunch and try Chefs de France for dinner...
FP+
Mission Space, Test Track, and Character Spot

Thursday Oct. 2
Epcot
ADR
Biergarten for dinner...not sure about this one still, may be changing
FP+
Soarin, Nemo, Spaceship Earth

Friday Oct. 3
No plans for this day yet, we may add another day to our park tickets or just go to DTD. We did the honeymoon registry and received Cirque du Soleil tickets so that is the plan for that night. Probably just eat/drink around down there for the day.

Saturday Oct. 4
Leave MCO around 12:00 p.m. and arrive at DTW at 2:40 p.m.

So that is what we have so far...any other suggestions for ADR's that you would highly recommend? We do have the deluxe dining plan so we might try for a few more signature meals for dinner. We really enjoyed Citricos on our last trip, but are really excited to try some new places (Yachtsman, Cali Grill). I am going to have to read again how to add photos to the thread so I can add a little more, but thank you for reading and I look forward to any other suggestions you all may have for us. muchlove

Congratulations on your wedding! Your plans look great. If I had the opportunity to go back in time I would absolutely have a "disney moon" too. We went to Las Vegas, which is often referred to as adult Disney world, but I like the real WDW much more biggrin

We are renting DVC points and it was a last minute decision to add that day on and unfortunately BWV did not have any availability for that night so we figured we would just pay for a less expensive room that night since we get in so late and will be checking out right away in the morning. clapping

Just received an email from Disney that our Magic Bands are ready to be shipped out, I cannot wait to get there!

Congratulations on the wedding and for choosing WDW for your honeymoon. My DH and I had such a blast there on our honeymoon! Can't wait to see pictures from the wedding and to hear all about your trip when you get back!

Best wishes for a happy life together!

Congratulations to you and Jake on your marriage! How wonderful! stars

Looks like we have some meet-up opportunities...we're at MNSSHP on the same night!! MVMCP was a great meet-up opportunity for us last year, so let me run this by you--do you know what your first priority is? I'm leaning toward Jack and Sally, so we'll probably go get in line for them around 5:50pm. If you'd like to meet up in line, it's a great way make the hour pass faster and bonus, we get one of the most popular MNSSHP to-do list items checked off right away!

Or we could maybe meet up in EPCOT on Thursday 10/2. We'll be there in the morning.

And p.s. the bouquet toss song I chose was "Let it go" Jake chose "Gaston" as garter toss song and garter removal song was "Under the Sea". We also named each table after Disney movies.
