Have fun! i love Destination Wedding. Make sure to buy some of those minnie mouse bride ears! We flew to our wedding/honeymoon through orlando, and we made a special trip to the monorail for our last day of the honeymoon, b/c my Darling Husband loves them so much πŸ™‚

I’m going for my honeymoon too! Our honeymoon will be 10/10-10/15. I’ve never been to Destination Wedding before, but my fiance has been there a few times. We didn’t qualify for free dining because our week was blacked out though! Of course!

I wish we were staying at a more “honeymoon-y” resort, but we’ve decided to be economical and stay at Pop Century, where we aren’t even guaranteed a king bed. The resort looks fun though, and totally us, so I’m not disappointed. But it would have been nice to get a moderate resort at least! (My first pick would be the Boardwalk though!)

I have friends who are Disney fanatics and have been there close to 30 times, so I’ve gotten ideas and hints from them. So far I’ve booked us dinner at ‘Ohana and Chef Mickeys. Oh, and we’ve also gotten tickets to Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party. LOL. We’ve got to come up costume ideas now.

Nobody has thought anything negative about us honeymooning at Destination Wedding. My family is jealous because I’ll actually be the first person in my immediate family to go! And my friends that I just mentioned also went for their honeymoon, so they think it’s great.

And we’re totally doing the Mickey/Minnie ears and the Just Married pins. I’ve been listening to podcasts and visiting allears.net to prepare. I think I know more about Destination Wedding than my fiance now, and he’s been there twice. πŸ˜‰

Yes! We are going to Disney World for our honeymoon and are sooo excited! πŸ™‚ No one has said anything negative, but I think a few people were wondering why we were going there… I don’t care what they think, though, because I love Destination Wedding and can’t wait! I really wanted to do the Spirit of Aloha dinner show, but I don’t think that is going to happen… we are doing the HoopDeeDoo Musical Revue though… not very honeymoonish, but we are still looking forward to it. πŸ™‚

I just wanted to say how jealous I am. I love Disney world. Probably more than is healthy for a 30 year old woman. I tried to get Fiance to extend our layover in Miami (on our way to Belize) for a few days so we could go to WDW and the new Harry Potter park at Universal, but he wouldn’t. So sad.

@r elizabeth: The Hoop De Doo is SOOOO much fun! The food is terrific!

Oh and if you’re looking for a break from the typical food there (which I find really lacks healthy options), there’s an amazing cafeteria style restaurant in Epcot in The Land pavillion called “Sunshine Season Food Fair” that’s really well priced. It’s basically one of the few spots you can get a salad or a slice of quiche. Next time we go, I think we’ll be going over to Epcot every day to eat lunch there! Plus you can go on Soarin’ possibly the best ride ever made at Disney πŸ™‚

haha @bakerella. That is too funny about wanting to extend your layover on your way to a vacation! We are talking about going down next year to visit Universal (yay Harry Potter!) and Sea World- I’ve never been to either. I’m really glad to hear that you enjoyed the HoopDeeDoo show too! I keep hearing that it is fun, and I guess I went in 3rd grade, but don’t remember it. πŸ™

We got married at WDW just last month!!!!  We spent out honeymoon there too and it was an amazing time, I wouldn’t have wanted to spend it anywhere else!  We stayed at Port Orleans Riverside, which is a really beautiful resort.  Disney gives amazing treatment to newly weds…I think it’s a fantastic place to honeymoon.  We are also going for our 1 year anniversary!

Make sure to ask for and wear your “just married” buttons!!  You can get a lot of special treatment when they find out you’re newly weds, like possibly getting on rides with no wait, free desserts at Disney restaurants, and a whole bunch of “congratulations!”.

My Fiance and I are going to Disneyworld in mid September for vacation, we’re seasoned Disneyland pros but this will be our first time at WDW! On travelocity we were able to book the Port Orleans French Quarter for the price of a value resort (i.e. pop century), maybe this might be an option for you too.

Also when I was planning our ADR’s I found allears.net extremely useful, they have all the menus for each the restaurents. I also heavily relied on mouseplanet.com, their forums have great discussions about WDW from trip reports to general stuff on the parks.

Thanks for the idea of buying the Mickey/Minnie ears ahead of time so we can have the photographer get a few shots of us in them! I hadn’t thought of that.

Glad to hear that about MNSSHP! It was a splurge for us. Halloween is my most favorite holiday, so I love that we’re incorporating a bit of it in on our honeymoon.

I forgot to mention, when we check out on Friday, Oct. 15th we’re hoping to go to Universal to check out Harry Potter too.

Whenever I tell my fiance how excited I am he always asks, “Are you excited we’re getting married or excited because we’re going to Disney World?”

@getwiggly: I love your invites! I think if you’re getting married at WDW, why would you skip that in your invites/decor?! It sounds like you’re doing it in a really nice way, not in a kid’s birthday party-type way.

Oh my gosh, can someone invite me to their WDW wedding just so I can go?! I’m getting excited reading about all these! LOL! Or I also had an evil idea that I’m going to book us to go down within a year and tell them it’s a delayed honeymoon (it sort of would be since Fiance wouldn’t let me have MY part of the HM!) and get some of the perks πŸ˜‰

@October4040: LOL! Your FH and mine sound very very similar!

We’re not going to WDW for our honeymoon, but we are going to be in Orlando. We’re planning on Universal/SeaWorld/WetNWild. Maybe one night we’ll head over to Epcot or something. πŸ™‚

we’re going to disney for our honeymoon. we weren’t going to go on any honeymoon, but when the 40% off codes came out, i was sold. we’re staying at the wilderness lodge (which we’ve stayed at once before, our first vacation together 3 years ago, and loved!). i also booked facials for us at the mandara spa at the dolphin (it’ll be his first spa treatment, i hope he likes it!). we’re having some fancy dinners this time and trying places that we’ve never eaten at before, like the california grill and artist’s point. we’re not going to be spending a lot of time in the parks, just the 1 or 2 days that we have dining reservations in parks.

we didn’t want to do the dining plan, only because we have reservations mainly at restaurants where we’d have to use 2 ts credits. we’re also not huge eaters and can’t eat 3 meals a day. we’re also fortunate that we have some gift cards to use for meals and my fi’s mom is paying for our room as our wedding gift.

my parents loved the fact that we were going to disney (it made it easier for them to get us a wedding present, gift cards!). they brought my sister and i there almost every year when we were young. i’ve had some people be like, “you’re going to disney? you want to spend your honeymoon with a bunch of kids?” they have no idea how much disney actually has to offer where kids aren’t involved much. in fact, my fi and i want to relax and do things like play mini golf or spend a whole day at the pool instead of going to the parks.

only a month left for us now!
