Fingers crossed for no more snow since the district has figured out the ones you have had already. Nothing, absolutely nothing, should come between you and WDW!

I did not worry finally about our trip and the changes. It was especially worse because my parents worry more than me and were really concerned.

I can see pavement... that is a good sign, although our driveway gets no sun hardly so it is a sheet of ice!

Oh gosh! I hope that the weather is perfect from here on out! Didn't you leave really soon after school last year?

Are you going to split up the drive or drive straight through?

ADRs!!!


The Dining Plan- I know it has tons of fans and I am not sold on whether I am in love with it or not. To be honest the no appetizer is fine by me, it was so much food before. I barely enjoyed my snacks because I was stuffed. When my mom said she wanted to get the dining plan though I was not going to argue. I knew that with the dining plan we would for sure stop and eat. That is not my dad's strong point... he just goes and goes without stopping to eat. This way we will have time to rest and eat in the AC- important in June and when you have three kids under six.

Here is what I am thinking so far:

Cinderella's Royal Table


Immediately I said we would be going to Cinderella's Royal Table. It was our favorite meal last trip and the girls loved eating in the Castle with the princesses. Plus it is an experience, and my dad has never ate in the Castle, and mom mom has not since I was like eleven. I would like a lunch ADR, personally on our anniversary, the 24th, our last park day.However I am willing to change days to get a lunch reservation. I would also like a later lunch time...so we can get lots done before we eat and then head out for a break. The girls both say this is the one meal that they want to do the most... and at some point I doubt DH will drag our little Luke to eat there!


Crystal Palace




I would like to go to the Crystal Palace for breakfast, first thing ADRS before the park opens! I have envy when I see families entering Main Street before the park opens, so I hope to get some of those fantastic, before you sweat to death pictures in the morning with my family! Plus I have heard great things about the breakfast. We have been there once, for dinner and as Emily has said- I need my picture with Piglet! (That little girl had better not be hesistant of the characters this trip- she sure is talking big right now). Plus Luke seemingly is attached to his Tigger the girls chose for him- he sleeps with it at night beside him... it is cute! My parents have never been there... and my mom can't even place where it is at MK. Personally I love how pretty it is and the topiaries are so fun!


LeCellier



We have dined there for dinner two years ago and could not get reservations last year due to booking later. I would like to return because it was super yummy and I think my parents would enjoy it. Notice Hannah is eating the pretzel bread- yummy!


Chef Mickey's





It is a family tradition at this point, especially for first trips to WDW. DH and I went on our first trip together (our Honeymoon) Hannah and Emily also went on their first trips too. So of course Luke needs to go. I liked last trip having it be our first meal, but I think I might wait so that Luke has a few days to warm up to the characters first. Again another meal my parents have not done. DH said this was a must do and the girls are on board too!


Mama Melrose

Sorry no pictures... I have only been there once, on our honeymoon. I am picking this so that we can do the Fantasmic Dinner Package so that we can try to get some seats for the show. We all like Italian, so I figure this will work for everybody! I have not done the dinner package before so tips would be awesome!


And then where to use our final dining credit? We have thrown out some different ideas... OHana's, Whispering Canyon, Cape May Cafe.... I am really not sure. Since I am somewhat up in the air about one park day I am somewhat flexible. I think the meal needs to be outside of the parks so we can schedule it on our flex day. I am not sure what I am looking for that day, so any opinions places to try are welcome. We are not as a whole the most adventurous eaters too, especially DH and and my dad! I also don't care if it character dining, but I do think we want a dinner reservation.

Yum, Yum, and Yum!

We LOVE Crystal Palace. It is a tradition for us to eat breakfast there on our first MK day. We love walking in to an empty park. The breakfast food is so yummy too.

We have never eaten at the Castle, but a friend just got back last week and she said it was their favorite meal.

LeCellier is soooo good! I can taste that pretzle bread and mushroom filet. DH has said we will not be going back until our kids are older because DD doesn't do well in soft lighting. It makes her more hyper if that is possible!

I was going to suggest O'Hana or Cape May for a non-park day. I haven't been to either, but really want to go after reading a few trip reports lately. I don't think you could go wrong with either. Although the girls would probably have fun at Whispering Canyon....

What about Wolfgang Puck's at DTD? We ate there for lunch our first trip and it remains one of our favorite meals.

Your ADR plans sounds great! We are planning very similar ADR's. We love the character meals, I have great memories of our last trip.

Good choices on the ADRs! Hannah and Emily are so cute in all your photos! I am hoping for an early morning ADR at CP, too!

My ideas for your last TS---keeping it outside a park of course:

Either O'hana, Kona Cafe, or Grand Floridian Cafe. All three are good in my opinion!!! Love the ones you have so far---making me salivate as we speak!

ADR's all sound yummy. We've done Ohana for breakfast and loved it. We also love Whispering Canyon - great food and fun atmosphere.

Getting into Magic Kingdom before opening and then having breakfast with Pooh is the best. It's so much fun to see the park that empty, plus a yummy breakfast. True Disney magic!

I think all of your ADRs sound really good.
