Here's what a little PIXIE DUST can do ....... a dining review+pics COMPLETED!!!!!
 
Well, actually a bit more than "a little" pixie dust! But let's start at the beginning.

Here's who's playing:
Tom, DB and travelling partner. LOVES everything and anything DISNEY! Works hard all year round so we can go on several Disney trips.

Me, Karin, planner of our trips to Disney and LOVER of everything and anything Disney as well!

We were first sprinkled with Pixie dust in the summer of 2008, when we were able to book our first Disney cruise for 2009 AND got the Free Dining bounceback deal for 2009 at POR.
Needless to say our stay at WDW got changed a few times.

Next Pixie dust sprinkling happened when Disney offered the 4/3 deal and we were able to take advantage of it for a week in February.
Our Pirate adventure can be found here -
Pirates on the Dining Plan.

Actually more Pixie dust was sprinkled on our vacation when we were offered an incredible deal from the British Disney Travel company - for about 200$ more than our POR (+FD) reservation we were able to stay at a 1 bedroom villa at OKW AND got the FD.

I am glad you are here!!! And THANK YOU for asking for the reviews for the other restaurants - I wasn't sure if anyone wanted to see photos or read about other restaurants, but for us experiencing new food and going back to old favourites is part of the vacation fun! I got everything uploaded and will post some of our pre disney food adventures right away.

Thank you for joining in! We loved our first cruise and are actually booked again for next summer - oops - gave that away :lmao:
I guess you loved Castaway Cay as much as we did! We are booked on a back to back cruise, so we can go to Castaway Cay twice - it's heaven, Disney heaven!!!
