Hello Lovely Dis'ers!!!

Just wrapped up my May 09 TR. We had a fabulous time last year though could have used a little less rain. We are planning to go back again in May with some of our buddies from last year. We have many ideas of where to stay, what to eat and where to go in our minds. I will use this PTR along with help from all of you to figure it all out. Up next, the cast

In case you are new (or don't want to read 79 pages LOL) here is the cast for our trip

DH (Jeff) is an accountant for Kona Grill (if you have one near you go eat there-we have profit sharing :rolleyes1:rotfl2:) He is also a homebrewer (makes some good IPA) He admits he had a good time last year and is even considering the possibility of DVC. He is a great daddy.

Me (Mary) is a SAHM-domestic engineer. I also do volunteer work for the Pajama Program and hang out with my mom friends.

Avery is five and in K this year. She is super smart ( way ahead in reading) and likes school except she says its too long. She also likes art and drawing. Favorite Disney characters Ariel, Tink and Hannah Montana-she likes her cause she thinks its cool

Cayley is 3 and goes to pre school 3 mornings a week (though I am looking for a good boarding school) She is a firecracker-full of personality. She keeps us on our toes. She has a great sense of humor and is very cute. She loves all the characters. Except Tigger "I no like Tigger-he is scary-I cry when I see him"

We went to the Pumpkin Farm today-here are some cute pics. I just got a new camera and am learning how to use it.

Hi Becky! I hear ya on the weather. I am a sucker for those $5 shirts. Avery is the top reader in her class as well. Our conference is the last week of Oct so i am curious to know what level she is at. We are currently reading the Rainbow Fairy series.

I don't mid chatty! Usually I enjoy all the chatter, I just figured if I was actually going to finish reading the report, I'd better skip most it. :thumbsup2

If May works out for me it will probably be one of the first two weeks - we'll be going for the flower & garden festival which ends on the 16th. It sounds like most of you guys are going late in the month, so I'd miss everyone :sad2:

So whatcha thinkin' for ADR's? What's on the must do list?

Here are the Must Do's
O'Hana-dinner-maybe with you guys
Yak&Yeti-lunch
Teppan Edo-dinner-if the table is for 8 maybe we all could do that..
Akherus-bkfst
Big River Grille-lunch

Strong Possibilities
Coral Reef-dinner
Tutto Italia-lunch or dinner
Wave-lunch or dinner

Possibiliites
1900 Park Faire
Boma
Plaza-maybe OOP?

Need to go to the dining page for reviews. Anyone have any opinions??

Need to go to the dining page for reviews. Anyone have any opinions?? Great choices Mary! Teppan Edo does seat 8 for sure. We had another family of 4 (Mom, Dad, & two boys) in May. They were really nice people from Canada....when I was looking through the restaurants on DDP in 2010 I saw 1900 Park Fare, and thought...we need to do that again...the food is only average but the interaction with the characters is fantastic. The girls absolutely loved it. If we do the Plaza I'm going OOP. The food doesn't justify a TS credit IMO. Don't know if you checked or not but you can do breakfast with Minnie at Cape May Cafe....would give you a chance to check out the Beach Club too...just an idea.

See our comments in red. Also, my dining reviews are in my signature for this year (although we only did two of yours this trip) and if you do a search under the Dining Reviews forum for "25th anniversary" you can find my reviews from last year which includes Yak & Yeti. Also, look up MickeyNicki...she has been to many of these places and does great reviews (she has never steered me wrong on our choices).

I don't think Big River Grille is on the DDP so if you are planning an OOP that would be the one, I don't think they even take reservations. I want to eat there too. We LOVED Grand Floridian Cafe and even though we won't be on the DDP we WILL eat there.

I AM SO GLAD WE ARE GOING TO BE THERE AT THE SAME TIME AGAIN :banana::cool1::woohoo:

Hi! Thanks for posting on my TR. I've gone back in and read yours from May. I really enjoyed it.

When looking at your plans - I would highly recommend Teppan Edo. It was one of our favorite meals. As a family of 4 we were seated at a table with another family of four. They were friendly and we had great interaction with the Cast Members. The food was GREAT too.

We also liked Boma a lot too.

Here are the Must Do's
O'Hana-dinner-maybe with you guys We haven't been there since 2005, but we don't care for it. The meat was tough and overcooked. I know everyone here on the DIS seems to love it though!
Yak&Yeti-lunch Eating there for the first time in December - I'll let you know what we think
Teppan Edo-dinner-if the table is for 8 maybe we all could do that.. Another first for us in December
Akherus-bkfst No girls, and my boys just won't have anything to do with a princess breakfast :sad2:
Big River Grille-lunch never been

Strong Possibilities
Coral Reef-dinner good food, but getting seated and getting served took awhile!
Tutto Italia-lunch or dinner Really like our meal here, but only go if you have the DDP - they are pricey!
Wave-lunch or dinner Another first for us in December

Possibiliites
1900 Park Faire never been
Boma we liked it - and they have zebra domes, yum!
Plaza-maybe OOP? never been

I don't think Big River Grille is on the DDP so if you are planning an OOP that would be the one, I don't think they even take reservations. I want to eat there too. We LOVED Grand Floridian Cafe and even though we won't be on the DDP we WILL eat there.

I AM SO GLAD WE ARE GOING TO BE THERE AT THE SAME TIME AGAIN :banana::cool1::woohoo:

Thanks for the info. YAY for May-you need to add another ticker girl!!!

Hi! Thanks for posting on my TR. I've gone back in and read yours from May. I really enjoyed it.

When looking at your plans - I would highly recommend Teppan Edo. It was one of our favorite meals. As a family of 4 we were seated at a table with another family of four. They were friendly and we had great interaction with the Cast Members. The food was GREAT too.

We also liked Boma a lot too.

I love TR's. Glad you enjoyed the May one. I am excited for Teppan Edo. I think it will be really fun for the girls. They both enjoy that type of food!

Looks like you've got some great dining choices - I agree with KatMark, the Boma breakfast is soooo good! Not sure about the dinner there, but will be trying it next month!

Really looking forward to hearing all your plans!

Thanks for joining in!! :banana::banana: Let me know about the Boma dinner!! Thanks, I am a planner!!

I think I mentioned either here or on my TR that we bought a new house. This was after our other "new"-was 30 years old house did not appraise and the sellers refused to budge on the price. So, we will be moving into our new "new" house-built in 2009 on Nov 14th!! Booked the movers today! Note that I said "booked" as in trips, ADR's etc:scared1:We are pretty excited. Gaining about 1400sqft and another level! :banana::banana::yay::yay:

I am so excited that we will all be there at the same time again :banana:. We aren't doing the DDP because the price is too high and since Dallas eats off the kids menu anyway it just isn't cost effective for us. I do know we are gonna eat at a couple of TS places.

It's 2am here staying up till 3 hoping to be able to make my ADRs for March..I hope this is worth it or I will have to reset my alarm for 6am. My wonderful DW is sleeping.. she did bring me my pillow though! LOL

At 1900 breakfast there is Alice, Mary Poppins, Mad Hatter, Pooh, & Tigger. There is no Cinderella and the Steps here for breakfast. At dinner, the SS are so funny! They had a great time with my DD and their interaction wasn't scary at all... it was more goofy than anything. If you were thinking of doing dinner here I would go for it... although if your DD's are scared or really don't want to do it then it might not be worth the trouble.:hippie:

Too bad we don't live closer. With a couple dozen friendly DIS pals, we could help you load up, clean up, kidsit, unpack, and fix the new place up in no time flat! :) Congratulations on the new new home! I'm sure you will enjoy the extra space.

Our Cape May breakfast this summer was awesome! Tusker House was good, and that ham was really delicious. You can't go wrong with either of them, as there are lots of choices for all tastes at both.

As a PP said, I'm pretty sure that the step mom/sisters are just @ 1900 for dinner. Breakfast has much "nicer" characters. :laughing: Maybe you could do that for breakfast instead of CRT - then you'd have that extra credit for another meal.

We're skipping CRT this year. I think the girls can live without it and there are so many places we want to try this year. I'd like to try a breakfast or two this time around...before park opens of course...

If you need some help persuading the girls on 1900 PF maybe we can get Lindsey and Avery together for a chat. You know the big girl factor. The girls loved it!

I am really on the fence. I think if we do something else character wise they will be ok. That is a good idea about having Lindsey talk to Avery. Avery is a little on the serious side so I am not sure she would think they were funny. Cayley is just scared of the Stepmother.

So I guess what I'm asking is what are your dates???

Our new Beach Club contract was sent to Disney for the ROFR so the next few weeks are going to crawl.

Hi Nichole
Once again I am very sorry for your loss. That is how we are moving to our new house. We would rather have her here but know she would be happy with us using the money in the way we are. We are excited and nervous about the more space. We tend to be "collecters" so.....I wiah you guys were coming too. Will you do a report for your Dec trip? Are you taking the kiddos or just you and hubby?

I know what you mean about packing up to move. I hate doing that. Dale and I said if we ever move again we will hire someone to do it all for us. May can not get here fast enough. It was so much fun planning our trip last May. I am going to start a PTR for our May trip soon. We had so much fun at Pop in September, Dale just wanted to stay there again. I want to try CBR and if they offer good prices for AP holders I will jump on it. I just couldn't pass up the pin I got for the Values.

T minus 12 days until the big move. We close a week from tomorrow. Now if only the painter would call me back....

Some freak thought it would be a fun idea to break the passenger window of my van and steal our garage door opener. Opened the garage but it was so stacked with boxes and stuff they did not take anything. Thanks goodness!! The auto glass guy said there have been over 50 break ins in the area he covers :scared1:

Still no pin code :sad2: Am hoping for the 4/3 extension announcement this week.

Anyone know anything about upgrading a buy 4/3 to an AP? If you can how many days would you get credit for 4 or 7. We are actually staying an extra day so would it be 5? I am thinking of taking Avery for her 7th bday in April 2011-will prob be May though.

We had a fun Halloween. Avery was a duck and Cayley a pig. Have some pics but they are not uploaded yet.

11-05-2009, 01:06 PM
Hey Mary. I hope the move is coming along good, well as good as a move can be.

I really thought about the 4/3 again, but it would be more expensive than us doing the room only (with the pin I got) and renewing our APs. I'm still hoping they come out with a good AP rate. If it is a really good rate I am going to upgrade to CBR or maybe even AKL. The AP rates that were out for the fall season were really good so I'm hopeful.

11-05-2009, 01:15 PM
Good luck with the final weeks before the move.... and planning. It is so hard to finalize those ADR choices, but just know with 180 I always felt I could make changes for a while before it got crazy hard.

that's nice
11-05-2009, 01:33 PM
Sorry to hear about your window. At least nothing was stolen.

As far as upgrading the 4/3 ticket... I think once you use it once it will show that it is a standard 7 day pass. Then you can upgrade it at any parks customer service window. APs cannot be purchased at resort concierge. Check out this post that has all AP upgrade info. -->http://www.disboards.com/showpost.php?p=18654362&postcount=7

Congrats on the house. Your moving in day is the day before Emily's birthday. Wish I could come and help. I'm sure your girls will love the extra space.
Sorry to hear about you garage. Some people are crazy.

must be getting really excited about the move about now! sorry to hear about the van break in...but that is too funny that they were discouraged by the boxes :lmao:

I want to say that if I remember right people last year that upgraded their passes last year received the 7 day credit toward the AP!

Have a great day! :wave2:
look forward to seeing your little one's for Halloween!

I am excited, we sign papers tomorrow! It could have been worse-my advice, have a messy garage LOL Thanks for the ticket advice.

MaryAz
11-05-2009, 08:24 PM
So how is moving coming along? Made any final decisions on ADR's?

I'll show you mine if you show me yours LOL. Planning to finalize it (for now) this weekend! I am up to my ears in boxes.

MaryAz
11-05-2009, 08:25 PM
Hey Mary. I hope the move is coming along good, well as good as a move can be.

I really thought about the 4/3 again, but it would be more expensive than us doing the room only (with the pin I got) and renewing our APs. I'm still hoping they come out with a good AP rate. If it is a really good rate I am going to upgrade to CBR or maybe even AKL. The AP rates that were out for the fall season were really good so I'm hopeful.

It is coming along. If I had a pin I would probably do room only..Crossing my fingers for a good AP rate for you guys.

MaryAz
11-05-2009, 08:26 PM
Good luck with the final weeks before the move.... and planning. It is so hard to finalize those ADR choices, but just know with 180 I always felt I could make changes for a while before it got crazy hard.

Thanks. I like the 180 days-give me lots of time to change my mind LOL

MaryAz
11-05-2009, 08:27 PM
Sorry to hear about your window. At least nothing was stolen.

As far as upgrading the 4/3 ticket... I think once you use it once it will show that it is a standard 7 day pass. Then you can upgrade it at any parks customer service window. APs cannot be purchased at resort concierge. Check out this post that has all AP upgrade info. -->http://www.disboards.com/showpost.php?p=18654362&postcount=7

Thanks, you are the man. Between this and the info on ur TR I get it!! Thanks for the link. Becky, if ya need a link ask Tim LOL :):rotfl2::rolleyes1

I'm finally here. Yay for going back in May! You guys are going to have blast!. I have a quick question from your TR. Where are those Mr. Potato head touch screens? I know my girls will love that.
Your girls are too cute at the pumpkin patch. I love the blue tongues.:lovestruc
Congrats on the house. Your moving in day is the day before Emily's birthday. Wish I could come and help. I'm sure your girls will love the extra space.
Sorry to hear about you garage. Some people are crazy.
ADR day is coming up soon. Did you consider chef mickey's? I wanted cape or tusker for my trip but I couldn't get it. (I only knew about the trip 40 days out.) But I did manage to get Whispering Canyon for bfast.
Have a good day!:flower3:

I forgot to sub.








That should do it.

:welcome: I am pretty excited to have some buddies going back! Makes the experience all that much better. Not sure about the Mr P screens. I know we found the parts at OUAT. We had a fun day!
I wish you could help too! Hope she has a fun party! I heard bad things (Leanne) and (Tammy) about CM so I think we are going to do Cape May or Tusker House or both...
Have a fun weekend!

CM I wouldn't go for the food just the characters. If you could only do one I would say do TH. I've eaten at both and TH is a lot better. What about Ohana? Or maybe Crystal Palace? The girls would love both!
Have magical weekend.

just found your PTR :) and read through it. Congratulations on being DVC holder!! :cool1: :goodvibes :dance3: I am hoping at some point I might convince DH that this could be a good idea.

Sorry that you car got broken into--at least they did not get anything like others have said. Serves them right!!!

CONGRATULATIONS on your new home too!! :woohoo:

Park Faire 1900 is on our to do list for next September. I would like to do DD's birthday dinner there with a cake. Supposedly the DDP restaurants have not been finalized and it could take all the way into January before the list is completely ready. I am hoping that they add Tutto Italia back onto the list. It looks so yummy :)

Magical time your life :goodvibes Looking forward to reading more updates. popcorn::

Mary, I came across your last trip report a few days ago. I've spent more hours than I care to admit reading it all. Many late nights and tired mornings can be attributed to reading your TR. Its ok though, I had so much fun reading and seeing what was next. It was great "getting to know" your family. Avery and Cayley are adorable.

I couldn't believe it when I saw the pictures of Avery. She could seriously pass for the twin of my friend's daughter Cora, who is also 5 and in K. My friend came over to my house last night. I called her over to the computer to look at "something." She had no idea what she was going to be looking at. I had Avery's picture on the screen...the picture you had posted of her where she is in the pink shirt and khaki pants in the check in area for the Disney cruise. Gina takes one look at the picture and the first words out of her mouth were, "Cora has never been on a cruise, where was that picture taken?" She thought I photoshopped Cora into a picture. Nope, that's not Cora.... It was a great laugh and took a lot of convincing to tell her nope, that is not your daughter. So now I've been teasing her, 'You can't even tell your own daughter from a stranger."

Ok, rambling. Anyway, I just finished up the long, but good TR from last May. Now I'm starting from the beginning reading this TR and hope to follow your story as you take your next Disney journey.

I have been to WDW many times but I'm planning to take my 5 yr old son on his first trip sometime next year. Possibly March, April, or May...time yet to be determined.

MaryAz
11-12-2009, 07:07 PM

I'm trying to pick the best time based on lower crowds and weather. I am looking at March or May, trying to avoid Spring break crowds.

We are going Sat May 23 through Sun May 30th. This getds us home on Sun, hubby off on Mon for Memorial Day then a long hot summer LOL. Last year we went May 16-23.I picked this time for a few reasons. March and April can be tricky like you said due to Spring Break, my DD would only miss 2 days of school ( it's the last week) and my DIS buddy Leanne was going back the same week and then Becky and Dana decided that week as well :hug:May tradtionally has lower crowds,good weather etc. Go ahead and stalk me, I don't mind at all I am a Dis stalker as well-just ask Leanne :)

It is a fun time of year and we are very blessed.

And very busy. Sorry - I haven't had much DIS time lately. Too much going on at school. I'll be a better Dis friend when I have some time off Thanksgiving week.

It's nice that you can arrange to go during the slower times. Peak times are all I know on a teacher's schedule, so I don't even notice any more. It's just what I'm used to. We did go that one time when I skipped school to take Jill for her early October birthday. It was definitely nice, but too short.

Good luck with the new house...

Well, we got the call today.....Disney executed their first right of refusal-is that how you say that??? :sad2: No AK points for us. I think we will wait until after the holidays and our house sells to pursue a new contract.
Good news is, we are back at the Poly with our buddies!! Now if they would only extend that 4/3 deal.....

Oh Mary, I'm so sorry you didn't get your points at AKL :sad1:. I would think with the economy being down Disney wouldn't have exercised the ROFR, but I guess they are banking on the future. I think it's unfair how Disney has the win/win proposition though. I'm like you, I keep waiting for them to extend the 4/3 or have a good AP rate, still impatiently waiting :surfweb:.

Dale and I discussed DVC, but after reading all that is involved we decided we didn't want to get into that right now. I would be upset if I had my hopes up and still didn't get the points :sad2:. Yep you're right on that one, Disney does hold all the cards.

Makes me full just reading the list! :laughing:

You know I'm all for that Cape May breakfast. That was so good!
I think that is the one week I am out of school between regular school and summer school, so what time should I meet you there? :goodvibes

Starting the first night soaking up the magic of Main Street and Wishes sounds perfect.

Downtown Disney is a good way to close out the trip. Get in that last minute shopping before going back out in the real world. ::yes::

Sounds like there could be some fun Dis meets in the works.

Planning is so much fun, isn't it? :banana:
