Please join me in celebrating my 50th Birthday...Deluxe Style! FINALLY COMPLETE
 
Good Morning Everyone! I am definitely doing the Happy Dance today. :banana: Not because I turned 50 yesterday :sad1:, but because in just two weeks I will get to celebrate at one of my favorite places in the world. DD21 has her last final exam on May 11 and then the very next morning she and I are off to my HAPPY PLACE. :cloud9: We are doing a split stay at my two favorite Disney resorts, with our first four nights (5 days) at the Boardwalk Inn (on the Deluxe Dining Plan) and then three nights (2 days) at the Polynesian on our own (will probably renew my TIW membership though). But more important than where we are staying is where we will be dining, so without further ado...

Ok, that's the lineup, for now anyway ;). I can't promise you I won't make any changes in the next two weeks (as I have made about a billion so far and I only started planning this trip about two months ago :lmao:), but I will promise to take lots of pictures and report back here on whatever food/drinks we do end up having. :thumbsup2 So please check back here next month and join me in celebrating my 50th Birthday...Deluxe Style!

Thank you annichan! By the way, I'm really enjoying your dining report (in progress) and can't wait for more. Your reviews from your 2009 trip were very helpful when I was planning our 25th anniversary trip last fall. Thank you and keep up the good work! :thumbsup2

Thanks for joining in YCFAN! You've given me a great idea...my DD graduates from college next year. Sounds like a good excuse to return to WDW. :thumbsup2 It's such a great place to celebrate! Hope you and your son have a great trip and thanks for the idea. ;)

Hi Deena! Yep, Friday the 13th...couldn't possibly be an unlucky day since we will be at Disney World. So what are you going to order at Coral Reef? I'm leaning toward the mahi mahi, but I could be easily swayed. :laughing:

Friday the 13th :eek: It's David's birthday that day too!! Well we've had Coral Reef booked on 3 trips now and have canceled because I never like the menu :( He picked it as his birthday lunch because I don't have control over that :lmao: Our ADR is at 12:55.

We plan on the appetizer for 2 sampler, He's going with the steak, and I'll either have a plain steak and fries, or try the seared chicken breast. I don't like any of their dessert offerings so I may have to make a trip to France :laughing: I highly dislike the taste of alcohol in my food, don't like creme brulee, and their gelato is almond--highly allergic. The kids menu has an ice cream sundae on there so that's a possibility :cutie:

Hopefully we'll see ya there!

Hi Nicki! I'm really glad to hear that you also have a trip coming up very soon. I really love your dining reviews! This one should be especially interesting and full of surprises since you are going without any ADRs. Hope you have a great trip and birthday celebration for Todd!
