Hi Stephanie! I hope you got all of the ADR's you were hoping for!

We took Emily to the movies for the 1st time when TP&TF came out, she loved it too! We go to the Canton Cinema now for the free movies on Sat/Sun mornings. It's a cheap and fun family activity!

Can't wait to hear more about Disney school! Speaking of school, I need to finish filling out the paperwork for Emily's preschool next year! Thanks for the reminder!!

Thanks Leanne! You are waiting too--I am glad I am not the only mom who is making their child wait to get the movie. I have the soundtrack on my computer--I like it!

First movie night is this week! I will post pictures if we do more than just watch the movie.

When we did Alice in Wonderland we had a tea party and I looked at the menu for the one at GF. Heart shaped pb&j, fruit bowls, cheese, and of course tea. You can't get much simpler than that.

Oh, and we loved Princess and the Frog- super cute with a strong message for girls.
Thanks Hope! Posting the outcome shortly. I saw you and Karen's report on Alice in Wonderland day during Karen's birthday week. It look fabulous! I will see how the week goes and what happens. I cannot have bread anymore so no sandwiches for me since I have not wanted to try any of the gluten free breads yet.

It was a great movie!!

I know Karen--it will be coming up really quickly!! It was a great experience, one I hope never to forget. I just watched her fast while it was starting--she was in awe.

Thanks Wendy. We have not taken advantage of the free movies--I keep wanting to but we forget or I do not know the schedule. I will have to look it up--thanks for the reminder!

We need to submit our preschool paperwork too. Where are you going to enroll Emily?

ADRs, BBB and Tea reservations made

ADRs were made today!! Here are the ADRs we ended up with:

Sunday, September 12th:
• Hollywood and Vine Fantasmic Dinner Package, 3:50
Monday, September 13th:
• Akershus Princess Storybook Breakfast, 9:15
• Coral Reef, 4:30
Tuesday, September 14th:
• The Plaza Restaurant, 11:05
• 1900 Park Fare, 4:30
Thursday, September 16th:
• Donald’s Safari Breakfast at TH, 8:30
Friday, September 17th:
• Rose and Crown, 7:50

So, we made two changes in the ADR list. We had originally chosen MM Fantasmic Dinner Package, but for both showings the week we are there, there were no times left. I had let A know that if we could not do MM to go ahead and try for H&V, which we got. I would still like to check in to see if we can switch to MM, but I have a feeling there is a slim to no chance of that happening. So H&V it is. :

You will also notice that Plaza is now on our list. I am happy with that choice believe it or not! : It is one on my list for next time but I asked A to switch our original 12:30 LTT reservation to the Plaza for two reasons: 1) I did not like the time, Tuesday we definitely need to take a break midday before 1900 Park Fare and MNSSHP and 2) it is not the family style meal my Dad originally hoped to have again. I am really excited about it!! Is there anyone reading along on PTR that has eaten there?

Along with ADRs, there were two other reservations to be made today: BBB and the Tea Party. We ended up with:

Tuesday, September 14th: BBB appointment at 8:00
Wednesday, September 15th: Afternoon Tea at GF Garden View Lounge at 2:00

If you might remember, I originally have been planning on doing the My Disney Girl’s Perfectly Princess Tea Party on the 15th. I thought about it and looked at videos on YouTube of it and decided this go around, it was not for us. Lilian can be shy sometimes and I am afraid that she won’t want to join in the experience yet. The food also is not so great considering the cost. I wanted the tea to be our thank you gift to the ladies for spending the money to come to Disney. With those thoughts in mind, I decided we would do the Grand Floridian’s Afternoon Tea in the Garden View Lounge. What about Lilian? She will be with us—she is one of the ladies of course! She will also be getting the My Disney Girl she would have gotten at the MDGPPTP either the morning of her birthday or I will give it to her at the Tea, which is what I am leaning towards at the moment. I can order her the redheaded doll now. :

So there you have it—a few minor adjustments. I have been planning the change from the tea party to the afternoon tea for the last week. The Plaza decision was made today. Overall, I am very happy and pleased with what we ended up with as our final outcome.

What do you all think?

Looks great! I have only heard rave reviews of Akershus and 1900 Park Fare. If Bella was the only child I was traveling with, we would have done them along with CRT. The tea party will be a lot of fun, too! Just think, only 180 more days!!!

I posted this on FB but I would love to see what patterns you have bought. I bought the package on YCMT with the Portrait Peasant, Patchwork Twirl, and Stripwork Jumper, and the Simply Sweet is what I used for the Tiana dress. They are all by Carla C. I am also thinking about getting the A Line and Easy Fits. They rave about all of her patterns on the Disboutiquers thread. And you will have to post pics once you get going!!!

I think the afternoon tea for all the ladies is a great treat. That's very sweet of you to do!

Great ADRs, Stephanie!! We've eaten at the Plaza a couple of times. They have good food and it's a great place to have lunch and take a break on a hot day. The restaurant is small, so we usually have to wait to be seated even with a reservation, but I think you will enjoy it!

Emily has been going to the Plymouth-Canton Schools preschool for the last two years now so we will continue to send her there. She is at Hoben, 2 afternoons a week this year and will be at Dodson, 3 afternoons a week next year. She loves school and wants to go everyday, "even Saturday and Sunday", she says! Where are you thinking of sending Lilian? Does she go to school now?

Can't wait for more PTR!!

Your ADRs look great!

We are trying Donald's Safari Breakfast too. I have heard great things about Akershus and 1900 Park Fare is awesome.

You are going to love the early BBB appointment. You should be done about 8:30 and will have some time to take photos of the little princess before the park opens.

Our DD really loved Donald's Safari Breakfast. She was so excited to finally meet Daisy! The food is regular buffet breakfast foods, but the juice is super yummy. The kids get to do a little parade around the tables with the characters, but my DD didn't want to join in. They also take your picture before you're seated and it's available for purchase. It's definately a fun way to start the day!
