Btw, meant to mention that this is amazing!!! No idea yet where it takes you for that hour? I've never seen it anywhere, guess it's not out and about much in the public areas?Moving at a snails pace.....
Things are moving along. Not as fast, as I would like it to, but what can you do? We're at the place where we really don't have much to do on our end or any major decisions to make. We had a scare for a little while about our 2nd visit with the wedding planner. Disney requires you to meet with them twice before the wedding (to milk you for all the money they can, knowing that anyone getting married at Disneyland, is obviously a Disney Nut and will make it into a vacation).
The second meeting is dealing with food and cake tasting and making final preparations and decisions if needed. We made plans for the tasting to be in September, a few weeks after we get back from a Disney Cruise on the Fantasy. That's a lot of Disney in only a few weeks. I'm sure we'll manage. We made our DVC (timeshare) reservations as well. Then when we tried to verify, Disney had no recollection or plans for the tasting with the Chef's. At all. That threw us into a bit of a panic. Time off from work had been submitted and approved, reservations made, plans set in motion. I don't like plans not working out or changing. It's just in my nature to freak out. Which I did, of course.
Luckily, recently we got confirmation that the Chef's could meet us on our original weekend we had set in September to go to Disneyland. That was the last bit of planning we have at this moment in time. Budget is submitted and done. They haven't emailed us about anything and we haven't had any more contact with them. I feel like I need to hear from them every couple weeks to keep me sane. I'm sure they're busy.
A few more people have committed to going and friends are now discussing hotel booking and the specifics of what to do and when, which is good. Christmas time at the resort is a crazy time, so it's best to be prepared and have everything done early.
So being 9 months out, it feels like time is dragging and will never get here. We're not having to do the normal planning that most people do for weddings, so at times I feel like we're just sitting here waiting for the date to get closer before I have to start popping Xanax.
The one thing that we get asked most about our wedding, is Cinderella's coach. Oddly enough, people are so curious about it and what will happen. It seems the people we've talked to who want a Disney wedding, want to make sure they have this as part of their Fantasy wedding. We were no different.
The coach will pick us up at the Disneyland Hotel and drive us ALL the way over to the Rose Garden, which is probably a 30 second drive. It cracks me up. It will feel like those times you valet, and you can see your car parked 10 feet from you, yet you make the valet go get your car and tip him 5 bucks anyway. The coach will stay parked and as a backdrop during the ceremony. One of the Coachmen, will be our ringbearer. I won't know much more about that piece probably until our rehearsal. After the ceremony is complete and everyone heads to the pre-reception, we will get back into the carriage for a ride around the resort. I'm honestly not sure where we will go for that entire hour, unless the horse walks at a snails pace. Again, another item I guess we'll find out when we get there. Eventually after riding around in circles we'll be taken to the reception for our grand entrance.
Luckily, I'll have a full hour to get my emotions back in place. I swear this is the reason for the ride around the resort.
