    Cool Photo Heavy Trip Report ~ Boyfriend & I

    First off, let me introduce myself. My name is Nicole, I live in Oregon, and I'm 18. I've only posted on here a handful of times (using my first account... when I was about 15), so if I'm breaking any forum rules anywhere or if the post is too photo-heavy, just let me know because I probably have no idea what I'm doing

    And a little background information... my boyfriend & I have been together for just over a year now, but unfortunately he lives across the country. He flew over (for the first time) to see me and go on a 6-day Disneyland vacation with me. I've been to Disneyland tons of times but he'd never been, so we tried to get as much done as possible. Luckily for us, the week was incredibly slow and almost all of the rides were walk-ons.

    We couldn't go into the actual parks until the next day, so after we settled into the hotel room, we wandered around Downtown Disney and had dinner at the Jazz Kitchen Express. I had the gumbo... it was alright but not nearly as good as the rest of the gumbo you can find in the resort.

    I got the Monte Cristo and he had the short ribs. I took 3/4 of mine with me as leftovers (the starter gumbo was so filling but SO GOOD). I definitely won't be getting it next time... tasted too much like a corn dog for me. But that's just me.

    Looks like you like you kids had fun! Glad to hear you got to spend time with your BF!

    Also, it looks like Disney is growing on him. He started the trip with no smile but there is a bigger smile with every pic!

    It looks like he had a good time! I love vacations where you can take your other half and show them something you love, and they love it too.

    I took by bf for the first time last year for his birthday and happily he loves DLR as much as I do! Unfortunately I didn't know about the 1st visit button or birthday button so he missed out

    You guys are so cute!! A lot of your photos are very retro/vintage looking and I LOVE it. Please let me know if that was achieved using a disposable camera (which I imagine it may have been). If so, I'm going to be picking up some old timey one use cameras for my next trip!
