Getting married Dec. 11th going off to Disney World for 9 days...
This was non negotiable on my part.  biggrin Staying at the Poly which is gona cost us a pretty penny but should be a blast.

  I also plan on hitting up Universal for a day to two while were down there. Nothing like a nice relaxing plumment towards the earth to solidify ones marrage. smile

 Chripes only 2 more months!!!!  :shock: MOMMY   paranoid

Oh here's a link in case your wondering what she looks like. I'm the one with the freakishly big hands!

Wife and I got married last August and spent a week in Puerta Vallerta, Mexico.

We had a great time, although I got real sick of getting hassled to buy into a condo.  I saw one guy with a T-Shirt that said "I'm sorry, I already have a time-share".  I'm definately getting one of those before I go back to any Mexican resort towns.

Zaxxon and I got married in July.  We went to Akumal, Mexico.  It was wonderful!!!  

I was responsible for wedding planning (with my mom) and he did honeymoon planning.  I didn't know until the morning we left where we were going except that it was hot, and I needed a passport and vaccines.

Spent a week in a beach house on the Oregon coast, Oceanside.  Small, quaint little place and very quiet and peaceful.  Had a great time.

We didn't take our honeymoon right away since we were moving out of our place a week after we got married.  We did spend a few days at a REALLY nice hotel in town and then later on in the year we went to Germany (and a few surrounding countries) for three weeks.

San Francisco, Monterey Bay, Napa, and Red Bluff (to visit her Grandmother who couldn't make it to the wedding).

Oooh - the Polynesian - that's one of my favorite lobbies, next to Wilderness and Animal Kingdom Lodges.  Hmm wonder if I still know someone over there...

We went to Disney World as well, for 2 weeks  biggrin We stayed at the Animal Kingdom for all but the last 2 nights. The last we stayed in the Grand Floridian, and had a room with a castle view" It was just after thanksgiving so they had the whole Christmas thing going in full effect. The coolest part was the firts night in the Grand Floridian we decided call it an early night, which was cool because  we got to witness an amazing fireworks show from our balcony.

Congrats and have fun at Disney Octavious biggrin

We went to Disney World in June of 2000, it was a wonderful time. We spent 4 days on the Disney grounds, each day going to a different park and at night we went to Pleasure Island. I must say epcot and Pleasure Island were the best. They are more of an adult themed area.
We had 2 extra days in Florida after that, so we rented a car and drove to JFK space station and the beach. I recommend going to JFK while you are there.

We eloped to Las Vegas. We started planning about 6 months in advance and got a nice room in the Venetian and after getting married stayed there for another 4 days. All told our wedding and honeymoon cost us about 2k...nothing like not going 20k+ in debt just starting out.  biggrin

Got married in December 1987 and lived in Phoenix AZ at the time, so we decided to head for some snow. We got a package deal in the Poconos (in PA) that included lodging, food, and things like skiing and snowmobiling. When we got there we were greeted by the complete absence of snow. They were having one of their driest winters ever. It didn't snow once while we were there and we never saw any snow. The accomodations were so-so and so it ended up being less than a great honeymoon.

In the summer of 2002 we took an Alaskan cruise. My wife summed it up perfectly: "it was the honeymoon we should have had". We had an absolutely incredible time. The ship we were on was 6 months old and was a floating city with everything you could possibly want (except a cheap Internet connection).

P.S. Our youngest daughter will be 17 months old on the 16th. Do the math - we had a great  :lol: time on that cruise.

Le Sport, St Lucia

Had a great, relaxing time.  Pretty much spent my day on the beach, planted my flag in the sand when I wanted another tropical frozen drink, and did the jacuzzi / massage / spa treatments twice a day.

You know if I went to some resort in Bermuda or something I wouldn't have a clue what to do. I have to be doing something at all times. Sitting on the beach in the sun is like a slow death to me. Guess I'm odd that way.  Some people said it would be tiring to go to Disney for that long. Bah!!!

  We went to Disney together when we first started dating in 99 for a week. Had a blast but stayed at the all-star resorts which i must say suck imho.  Of course that's coming from a spoiled brat who thinks if you don't go home poor from a vacation you weren't trying hard enough!

  Pleasure Island should be a nice diversion at night since the parks close kind of early around the time were going. There going to have a ton of xmas stuff to do though which should be really cool. And of course there's DISNEY QUEST!!!! BEST PLACE EVER!!! Last time we went we were there every night. Just couldn't get enough of that place and it's included with our park passes.

  Damn I'm never gona want to come home heh.  crybaby  :mrgreen:

The wife and I went to Scotland.  The National Trust of Scotland rents historic homes and such, and we were able to rent the guest wing (formerly the servants quarters) of a 16th century castle.  The main house was open to tourists during the day, but after 5pm, the only people on the 500-acre property were us, the caretaker and his family, and the cows.  Very romantic, very cool.  I highly recommend it.

We went to Aspen, Colorado. But we got married in June so it was the off-season. Nevertheless, it was a lot of fun, and we went back again for our 20th(!!!!!!) anniversary to revisit the place.... and now it's expensive all the time.  :shock:

We went to DisneyWorld as well (we're both big kids at heart), and stayed for a week at the Grand Floridian. Wow, one of the most amazing experiences of my life. We got the full honeymoon package with the Disney wishes so we pretty much ate "free" at all the most expensive restaurants we could find. There's nothing like dining out on $150 meals every night.

We would get up, eat breakfast with the characters, jump on the monorail and ride to the parks, spend the whole day there, catch a bus to Downtown Disney and hit the clubs until 3 in the morning. Then catch a bus back to the hotel, crash, get up and do it all again. We were totally WORN SLAM OUT by the end of the week but my God what fun it was.

We had such a blast we're planning on saving up enough money to repeat the entire honeymoon for our 5-year anniversary.

Ya one of my big things was walk on access to the monorails from the hotel. Hence why I picked the Poly....Can get to Epcot and Magic Kingdom very easily from there. I'll probably hit Epot up at least 4 times I really just don't get bored of that place. Animal Kingdom 1 day maybe even only a half day. MGM for a day, Magic Kingdom at least once probably twice and then Islands of Adventure and Universal a day each.

   Gona cost a pretty penny but it's the offseason so the lines should be extremly short which I just love. I was thinking of checking out horseback riding I seem to recall they have that there.  So ya a nice relaxing trip lol.

Ditto. Also, they let you go to the other Sandals resorts, so you have a ton of restaurants to choose from.

St. Lucia's a beautiful island. When we were there almost 10 years ago, we flew across the island on a helicopter and you could see how unspoiled it was. Dunno if that's still true.

I'm trying to figure out where to take Carrie on our honeymoon...

Anywhere warm in January is going to be pricey, but what the hell...

I snagged some Ideas from you all here, but Southern California seems to be nice all year round, as in San Diego... Could be Fun. We've also considered camping.. who knows... The Scottish Castle sounds like a lot of fun.

We went to Hedonism II in Jamaica -- nothing like sharing your new bride with 30 other couples smile






kidding.






Actually, my wife had her doctoral dissertation defense a few days after the wedding, so we had to put it off.  Eventually we spent a week in Santa Fe which was wonderful smile  Finally, (this Thanksgiving) 5 years after we got married, we are spending a week at the end of the Hana Road in Maui as sort of a honeymoon that we finally have time for.

We went on an 11-day cruise on the Celebrity Milennium, with stops in Barbados, St. Martin, St. Thomas, St. Lucia and St. Kitts. I have never had so much fun or lived so well. It's a wonder I didn't capsize the boat with all the gourmet food I ate.

The wife and I love Disney World. One bit of advice: don't blow off the Animal Kingdom. If you like animals and going to zoos, you can easily burn a day wandering around there. It's a great place with some pretty fun rides/attractions as well.

Nice is a relative term - it was the one month when we looked forward to a break from the nonstop 80 and sunny days smile  Meaning, if it's gonna rain, it'll be in Jan or Feb.

Serioulsy, if you are looking for a place where it's actually WARM and beach-ish weather, San Diego in January might dissapoint you.  There's a solid chance of 68 and sunny, but an equally solid chance of 60 and drizzling.

Still, over the course of a week I'd be surprised if you didn't get some quality days.

Oh -- and for a romantic honeymoon, The Hotel del Coronado is the ONLY hotel you should consider, though if your heart is set on LaJolla, La Valencia is a fine substitute for the del  smile
