Completely worth it.
Thanks so much! Do you know if all the princesses are there or just a select few? Thanks again.

The BB offer is valid at the at value resorts with free QSDP but the LM rooms are excluded so for now I ended up booking POR with free DDP but we can always change when i get home. I'm not sure between POR and POFQ.
It's such a great feeling to know that we will be coming back in less than a year. It makes going home slightly easier.

We just had dinner at CRT last night and it really is worth it. I have 2 boys and they loved being able to go into the castle. You pay for the experience and not the food although the food was pretty good too.

Yesterday we saw Jasmine, Ariel, Snow white and Aurora and we took our pic with Cinderella downstairs before heading up to the restaurant. I think there's no guarantee who will be there.

You just made me feel so much better!! Just called DH and told him what you guys said and we're really excited now! Going to the costume store shortly to get DD a dress to wear!!!! Now we'll also need to get her an autograph book for that and Chef Mickey's!! I think she's going to be thrilled!!!! Thanks again!

So worth it... If you're nuts, I'm right there with you. Did CRT for pre-park opening breakfast last January. DS3 and DD5 still talk about it. Loved it so much we've already booked another for our trip in the spring. We love Akershus too though, especially for dinner since we think the food is deliciously different. And we have the best pics of the kids with Belle. Enjoy!

We just got back late last night from our anniversary trip. We had such a nice time. Our room location at AKL was the best we could have asked for. So close to the restaurants, buses, lobby. We were set. We had wonderful anniversary dinners at Jiko and Narcoossee's. Our meal at Narcoossee's was by far our best meal of the trip. We had the best server, Rita, who brought us dessert at the end on the house. Such a cute special touch. We really had a relaxing time. Although I enjoy all our Disney vacations, this one, was the most relaxing. I have never said a Disney vacation was relaxing before. Lol. Fun, but usually not relaxing.

We were able to get everything done that we wanted to do, but didn't get to see the new Fantasyland. Oh well, I guess we just have to go back at some point sooner rather than later.

Narcoossee's was a great meal when we did it for our honeymoon 2 years ago too.

Did you do any of the late night parties (MNSSHP)?

Glad you had a great trip. I will see you all when we get back next week!

We didn't do MNSSHP this year. We did last September when the kids went with us, but wanted to spend our time do other things we haven't really had a chance to do with the kids. So we went to MK the last day of MNSSHP and then hopped over to Epcot for dinner and to enjoy some of Food and Wine that night.


Hope you have a fantastic time!

Lol I'm cracking up! But I'm happy to hear your kids loved it! I think just being able to go inside the castle is such a great experience for them! I can't wait to see the look on her face when we go in! I think I'm just as excited!! lol

I hope we can leave all this behind when we hop on the plane Tues. and whatever we forgot, we can buy. It has really been one hell of a week and trying to think good and warm thoughts.
Sorry things have been so hard on your family. I hope you all have a wonderful time in Disney.

Got our Disney pins (ebay) yesterday and the Photo Pass plus (now only $149) on the way. Staying at Bonnet Creek (new owners -ebay). First time for spending Thanksgiving at Disney, have been there several other times for the Holidays, was there in Magic Kingdom for New Years 2000 (yes it was nuts) and even proposed to my now wife at midnight at the Castle then. Only wish my son-in-law could be there... passed away in late August... he has been and will be missed.
Scavenger hunt sounds like fun! So sorry for your loss.

Thats neat you got to see some of both kinds of decorations.

I'm starting to think we've forgotten something as we get closer. We're getting ready for a birthday party on Saturday and then Thanksgiving on Sunday. Then it's a couple of days of work and we're off to Disney!

A couple of cool updates though. When I was in Vegas I got a nice nylon drawstring bag/backpack that will be great for in the parks. Actually, I got two of them. They say IBM, but I don't think that matters.

Another cool thing is that we've learned that the school will totally play along with our surprise and will help us to spring the secret on the girls. So instead of picking up DD1 from school and just heading out we're going to have her called down to the office a few minutes before school lets out and the secretary will film us telling the girls that we're going to Disney! I know that because of our stories that we've been telling the girls they will be a little apprehensive at first, but I think in the end they are going to be very excited.
Thats really great they are going to video it for you. They are going to be so excited!

The only thing was that MK was REALLY crowded today. It was not a recommended park but I didn't listen. However, yesterday DHS was also very crowded even though it was the recommended park. I think i prefer the end of August crowds but the weather now is so much nicer. Crowds have been pretty crazy this week
I'm thinking of booking the FD BB offer for next August before we check out tomorrow. I just have to figure out which resort we want, either AoA again or POFQ. Any recommendations?
So cool you all got to see the new fantasyland. Sounds like a wondeful trip.

for single digits! Yes! Very excited and we still have 20 more days.

So glad you didn't give up. You all will have a great time. We have been for lunch twice and both times it was so worth it. The memories are awesome.
