Hi everyone! This is my first post here on the forums, though I have been reading many of your great answers for a while now! Be warned, I ramble…
I am hoping that all of you wonderful, knowledgable Disney lovers can help me with planning a trip for me and my long time boyfriend for December 3-7, 2006. I have already booked our hotel (Animal Kingdom Lodge, 1 bedroom suite), which I totally splurged on, parktickets, basic tics with Park Hopper, and airline, but am at a loss as far as ideas for the rest of the trip.
My BF has never been to Disney, and is not nearly as excited about this trip as I am (I have only been twice: once when I was three, and then about four years ago). I keep trying to explain to him that WDW is not just for children, but he is very sceptical. I want his input on dining, etc., but he is simply indifferent to the whole thing. He says it seems too far away, but I am already so excited I can hardly stand it. I hoped that helping me plan would get him in the mood, but so far it hasn’t worked. :sad:
I was wondering what some of you who have traveled as couples before have done, besides the parks. I want us to do the parks for sure, see Illuminations, maybe do the CP, have a Sunrise Safari at AKL, and eat at Crystal Palace (I love Pooh and friends!). Other than that, everything is really wide open.
I am looking for suggestions for restaurants (BF and I love good food, but he HATES anything TOO fancy or over-the-top, atmosphere wise); suggestions for activites (really want him to have a Disney experiance we can remember forever); and any advice about using concierge. I have never stayed on concierge level before, and though I have read all about what is involved, I don’t really totally get what they can do for you. Will they help just with reservations, or can they do some special things (suggestions for these too would be appreciated) to make our trip ultra fabulous?
I apologize for rambling (I DID warn you!), and thank you so much for any advice, no matter how trivial you might have.
Thank you so much,
Amy :wacko: :wacko:
