Glad to hear that your wedding plan is going well! Can't wait to hear about your planning session. Are you doing a food tasting as well?
I'm really excited to see the 30th merchandise! What I've seen online looks really cool!

Thanks!! Yes, of course!!!

Out of your F&W list, the pork skewer with chimichurri sauce has been a favorite of mine since about 2006!

I also love the baileys cake!

My hands down favorite is the pork lettuce wrap with kimichi slaw (or however it is spelled). It is really, really yummy and worth a shot!
Thanks!!

Ooh that sounds really good!! We'll have to give that a try!

Mickey mail!!

Fortunately, in a much more timely fashion than last time, our Mickey Mail (complete with ME tags) arrived!!!

(For those of you that hadn't followed along with my previous PTR, see
here
here
here
here
here
and here)



The ME tags and usual Mickey Mail booklet now arrive together, which makes more sense to me than the other method of separate mailings.

The new luggage tags. They're holographic.



Other than that, really, no updates. We're making lists of things we need to bring/bring back (why not get a good portion of holiday shopping done while we're there as well?).

Oh, and an important crucial question for those of you that were recently there: is Boulangerie Patisserie open during the construction of the new bakery??? (read: what is the availability of the French Napoleons? )

HOORAY for Mickey mail!!! I love the new holographic Mickey tags. Too cute.
Unfortunately I didn't visit the Patisserie last week. I had so many good meals that I was always too full for a snack!

Yay for Mickey mail coming on time!! Those tags are pretty sweet aren't they?

If I remember to look today while we are at Epcot today I will post here! Napoleon availability is crucial!!!

I will check on the bakery progress and your question about the French historical figure who is now more famous as the dessert than for anything historical in just a few days!

Christmas shopping in Disney World is much fun for the giver and the getter.

So glad your Mickey mail arrived ahead of schedule (for you anyway....). Those luggage tags are cute. I guess we lowly DVC members don't score those. Boo!

The luggage tags are so cute. I agree with MEK, wish they would send those with DVC reservations.

I am interested in the bakery status too. I had heard they would be open during construction but then I saw some site had it on the refurb/closed list.

Yeah for Mickey Mail!! We don't have a package so I only received the ME booklet and yellow tags (which I don't need because of our hideously late flights) Someone on our October Facebook group though had a bunch extras and sent me some of the new luggage tags!!

I do believe the French Bakery is still open. I saw someone post about something they got there! (Can't remember what it was but they had it just 2 days ago!!)

Love Mickey Mail! Packaging them together makes sense, but I always enjoyed getting two things in the mail!

Yay for you luggage tags arriving well in advance this time!! I offer this humble luggage tag dance in honor of those tags arriving timely!!!

It's great that Disney synched up the luggage tags with the travel docs. No more worries if you will receive one but not the other.

Happy list making Sara!

That's pretty great that you got a timely Mickey Mail arrival! Such a different experience for you.

A little jealous of those holographic tags, I'm not gonna lie.

Oh that is an important question, because Napoleon availability is very important. Sadly, I can't answer that since I haven't been more recently.

Yay! Glad you don't have to worry about that this time.

Also, I believe the Boulangerie is staying open during construction, because as far as I know, it was already under construction when I was there.

Yay, glad you got your Mickey Mail on time for this trip! I have no idea if the French bakery is open, I hope you can get your beloved Napolean! I really need to try something from there someday!
