Pretrip Report turned work in progress to final trip report for mommy daughter disney

Reservations are made!!

Would love input on this. Suggestions.. Comments..

September 18th- Arrive at airport, take shuttle to hotel, take ART to Disneyland. Dinner reservations are at Goofy's Kitchen.

September 19th- Morning madness at Toontown. Lunch Reservations are at Blue Bayou.

September 20th- Sleep in a little later- Breakfast with Minnie in the park

September 21st- My DD's 4th birthday Sleep in slightly (that will allow the birthday phone calls lol) Breakfast at Carnation Cafe, followed by reservations at Bibbity Bobbity Boutique and then photoshoot for that, ending the day with a birthday celebration at Ariels Grotto. Go back to hotel early- swim and have more birthday phone calls

September 22nd- Magic Morning- late breakfast in the park at River Belle. Dinner Reservations at Rain Forest Cafe.

I think you made some excellent choices in dining! Goofy's Kitchen is my favorite restaurant in all of DLR (though generally for breakfast, not dinner) and they have a very wide buffet that you all should like, as well as classic characters. Minnie & Friends has a lot of characters and people love it, and Ariel's is very popular, as is Blue Bayou. I also love Carnation Cafe, Rainforest Cafe and River Belle Terrace! So a big on the food choices! I think you guys will have a FANTASTIC time, between all the character meals and the BBB photo shoot, and taking PhotoPass pictures in the parks. Don't forget to ride Toy Story Midway Mania, Monsters Inc. and visit A Bug's Land for all of its cute rides.

I love this site let me tell you lol. Is my pretrip report started out right? Or is it not detailed enough? I told a co-worker about out reservations and he wants to know all the details once i get back he is very jealous. he will be taking his family soon too.

I think your trip sounds wonderful! You are going to have such a great time with your daughter!! BTW, my son turns 5 on 9/24! We're doing a big WDW trip in December to celebrate that.

Sounds great to me! You're doing the same character meals that we are when we go (Goofy's Kitchen, Minnies, and Ariel's Grotto) although we'll be there about a week before you. I've only done the Minnie & Friend's before but I have only amazing things to say about it. If you wanted to see pics of our experience I've got links in my signature to my TR!

Everyone takes their own approach to their TR's!! Feel free to do as you please with yours, and definitely a good start. One thins we DIS'ers love to see is pictures though when you get to the aftermath of your trip.

Just something to keep in mid. When DD did BBB at WDW, she wanted her hair to stay put for several days. We managed to do this by very gently rinsing her hair in the bathtub during wash time. Keep in mind that going swiming will do in the 'do.

Day one

What better way to start then with airport pictures



we had an execu car service pick us up at LAX and within 5 minutes...


then checked into the hotel- Motel 6 Now normally I would not stay at a Motel 6 but it was newly redone so figured for the price.. why not.. NO COMPLAINTS!!!







Then to Disney

We started at the hatter store. She got her button and her birthday ears (BOTH were WIDELY noticed by CM- and she loved the attention)



we were running late so we only had time for one ride



then off to Goofy's kitchen. The whole experience was magical...


She got to dance alone with him and was sooooo excited about that



then we did some more rides, played at pixie hollow and watched fireworks



She is a big tink fan as you can tell by the overdone smile lol


[IMG][/IMG]

BAD picture.. but you can kinda see Tink...


After all this we were tired so headed back to the hotel and who should we see...



and again.. within 5 minutes of being in the hotel



A very fun day!
