“Stephen and Sabrina’s Disney Bella Notte”.

This past December was our 10th anniversary. We did not do anything for it, because we planned on going to Italy this coming September for the Bi Annual Wrought Iron Exhibition in Tuscany for me, and shopping in Florence  for Sabrina.

Now that Disney World and the start-up of Lato A.C. D. and Resellers is going to take up so much of our time and money, Italy will be postponed until the next Italian Blacksmith Event in 2015.

Sabrina and I are dreaming about Disney dates together and even a double date with her parents while Disney sitters entertain Stephen Michael and Rosalie.

Now that this Disney dream is coming true for our family as a whole, help me create our late 10th anniversary dates memories forever told.

This is our first Disney World experience as adults. Sabrina’s 30th and 32nd birthdays were enjoyed on Royal Street in New Orleans and on our Honeymoon was a sample of all of New Orleans from our two B&B’s.

One in the French Quarter, and the other in the Garden District. From the graveyards to a riverboat cruise. All planned by me!

 One similarity between New Orleans and Disneyworld is the amount of guidebooks, YouTube videos, blogs and google street views available. 10 years of marriage doesn’t hurt either.  🙂

 I now have what is known as a clue when it comes to planning for Sabrina’s pleasure and then marrying them with mine. One of Sabrina’s friends is a Disneyworld travel agent, and another works in Fort Wilderness.

I have all the answers and know exactly what Sabrina and I would love to experience on our Disney date nights. I got that.

So what do I need you for? Because if you are a woman, or any person who has been on a date night in Disneyworld, then you have a perspective and knowledge of the little romantic details that I can’t have.


Imagine that you are on a boat on Disney lakes going to watch Illuminations Epcot Fireworks show from the water.  What conversations are you having with your love? What little gifts or PDA’s would truly put the icing on the cake?

I need you to share your Disney dates. I need you to tell me how to make the magic happen in Magic Kingdom, enjoying each other as adults…Disney style.

I read international cookbooks like they are novels, and daydream on YouTube and the Travel Channel. International Cuisine is my culinary passion. Look at my Pinterest group of the same name.

Epcot can be the next big thing before missing my Italian second honeymoon. I would love to spend the seven days in Epcot dining in a different country for every meal, chatting up the people from the many countries in Epcot, and shopping so that I can at least look well-traveled without ever having left the United States. 

Please help me prevent my dreams from becoming everyone else’s nightmares, with so many international restaurants, international shopping and enough to see and learn to daydream in Epcot forever.

It might help if some of your could give me your favorite Epcot restaurants, dishes and shops. Being in international settings is about more than just the stuff.

How did if feel to be there? What is the ambiance like? Are the people as unique as the “things?”

My in-laws live in the woods of Mississippi. I went camping all over the United States in scouts.

As a parent, I know that my children need a place to play and run around. That place is Fort Wilderness.

Next Friday’s post will give you my thoughts and ask for your expert advice on the other four people going to Disneyworld and making Fort Wilderness home. 

This is my and Sabrina’s post, not theirs. Put yourself getting back to Fort Wilderness cabins after three days in the blazing hot Florida summer.

The kids are having fun, but the new car smell has faded away. You and your family are looking forward to the three-days in Disney wilderness, shopping in Downtown Disney, and dining at other resorts.

Should Sabrina and I slip of to Paradise Island? Hire Disney to entertain Stephen Michael and Rosalie while we have a double date with Sabrina’s parents? Or go to the campfire with Chip N Dale on the night before three days outside of Disney Parks?

Our first day in Disneyworld and our last day in Disneyworld will be in the Magic Kingdom. Realizing we have arrived by seeing Cinderella’s Castle 🙂 Then seven days later saying our last goodbyes.  😦

Before that last day, on our three days outside Disney parks, Sabrina and I will once again have to many options to choose from.

Do we swim with the Dolphins? Would Blizzard Beach be cool? I would love the Pirates and Pals fireworks voyage on the Breathless II. Should I fly around the lakes in Hobie cats or take Sabrina canoeing?

I would love to have a candle lit massage with Sabrina at the Grand Floridian Spa. What would you love? What have you truly enjoyed with your love?
