Yeah! Another trip in just 2 months! And I love your choices for dining. You are trying lots of new places.

Thanks again, Brenda, for sharing with us. Hope you and your family have a Happy New Year!

Emmysmommy,

I loved your wrap-up! I am excited with you to read about your future plans! It will be here in the blink-of-an-eye! I look forward to your next round of reviews (you and I might both be posting some near the same time)!

I sent you a PM.

As for Be Our Guest dinner and Narcoossee's...good luck! Both places have been receiving somewhat inconsistent reviews recently. That said, our last meal at Narcoossee's was very good, and BOG gets a pass for being brand new. Maybe they'll work things out over the next few weeks (and if they don't, you can let us know ).

Thanks for another fantastic set of dining reviews, and have a very happy New Year!
Hi Mr. DDW!! I know you have been busy with school but I hope you are enjoying a holiday break. I sure miss there being an active dining review under your authorship!

Yeah, I'm a bit worried about some of our intended ADRs.. we'll have to see. I didn't know that Narcoosees was on the bubble but I do want to try it at least once.

Take care and I wish you all the best with the New Year!

Happy trip planning to you and Em and of course all the best for 2013
Thanks Wills Mom! I appreciate the well wishes!!

May is a great time to go to WDW since the Flower and Garden show at Epcot is still going through the middle of the month.

I might be living under a rock, but I didn't know you had another TR going on. I'm heading over to check it out.

Also...yay for end of Feb and early March trip. I'll be there too (27th-3rd) visiting my sister who is doing the Disney College Program!
Hi Allie! Thanks for reading along and thanks for the compliment. Next review I'll have to break out the dictionary and expand my vocabulary beyond - good, awesome, and delish!!

Awesome that we will be at WDW at the same time as us in Feb/Mar. We'll be there from 2/23 - 3/4. If you see us, please say hi!! I'd love that!

Hi Rachel! Thanks for reading... this really drug out so thanks for hanging in there. I was able to follow your live review which have given me ideas for new items to try at LTT (colony salad) and Le Cellier (burger)... thanks for your reviews as well!

Hi Belle5! I was excited to see your PM - see my response! I am excited about this trip since we have some new resorts, new restaurants, and some great mother/daughter time planned. Thanks for reading!

Bummer that this one is over! Happy that I don't have too long to wait for another awesom report! I had such a nice time chatting with your lovely family on our trip. It was so great to meet you in person and I am so glad I recognized Em from your pictures. I only have 2 days left on my dining review then I will have to live vicariously through all my DIS friends reports. I am excited to see if BOG is good or not. We want to dine there when we go back down (whenever that is). Looking forward to a new report in a new Year! Have a happy new year!!!

Yay, for another girls trip! Can't wait to hear all about it! I'm determined to turn my little one into a future Disney fanatic! She already loves her Minnie

I hope you have a very Happy New Year Brenda!

Oh my gosh Brenda, would you believe that I never even thought about bringing the sausage to the Princess 1/2 until you said something?? I'm totally laughing right now at the thought of carrying the sausage with me in my running belt! Now that you mentioned it, I've got to do it. I'm imagining getting some pictures along the way with characters and at mile markers. This is going to be great!

Terrific ending to your report and I'm excited to see some new restaurants on your list. I'm doing a first at Jiko too and I can't wait! It'll be so fun to see you too in two short months!

Love your wrap up of favorites, and excited about next trip to read more reviews.

If you've not caught up on Nicki's reviews, Be Our Guest got an A+ from all six of us.

Happy New Year.

Happy New Year! How are my favorite west-coast DISers?

I am SO sorry that I got so behind, but I'm all caught up on this review now and can't wait to hear about your next trip! It's so soon!

As for your dining plans for Feb., they look great! I know Be Our Guest has gotten some iffy reviews, but I think that's just because it's new and they're still irking out the bugs. I went there a couple weeks ago for dinner and LOVED it! Our server was attentive and so friendly, and everything I ate was wonderful. Plus, the atmosphere is just indescribable. It's gorgeous. Definitely a must-do for every trip from now on!

I noticed that you were also concerned about San Angel Inn. I went there in August and my entire family loved it! The ambience is so peaceful and beautiful, and the food was excellent. Our particular server was very courteous as well. I hope you enjoy San Angel and Be Our Guest as much as we did!

Merry belated Christmas and Happy New Year to the whole family!

Hi Karla! Happy New Year to you and your family! I'm so glad that we were able to meet as well... thank goodness I post photos of my kid in my reviews!!

Tracy - you HAVE to do this because it would be hilarious to have the sausage complete 13 miles of Dis fun with you!!! So funny! Can't wait to see you again!

Kathy I am so excited to see BoG get such a great rating from your group!! I'll have to catch up with Nicki's review to see what you ordered. I see you've done some updates to your TR as well... you are putting me to shame!

Happy New Year Kristen!!! I'm glad to hear another person give positive feedback for BOG! Whew! I definitely want to enjoy the theming and atmosphere. As for San Angel Inn, we'll try it and report back.

I'm so glad to see you take the time to drop by... I know you are a busy gal! I hope you enjoyed your Christmas and New Year. Ohhh... I see you did an update for your TR.. gotta run and read now. Take care sweetie!

Yes, definitetly! I could also post the photo of Betsy here since I know she has an active dining review here.

This is a preview for only those on the Dining Boards:

After DDW, my family and I got drenched on Splash Mtn (not only were we seated in the front but we went down the flume right when it started to downpour) we had the pleasure of meeting Betsy (PrincessBetsy.)

DonaldDoleWhip, Princess Besty, and Emmysmommy


Here's a link to Betsy's ongoing DCP Dining Review.

Here's the link to Mr. DDW's current DR.
I'm just coming back after months away from the DIS, and I am busy catching up on everyone's DRs, but I have to chime in now and say WAAA! I LOVE this pic! I looked for Princess Betsy every day I was in MK and it just wasn't to be. And DDW!! What a coup, Brenda!

Looking forward to reading the rest of your report.

Hi there! Yay you are back on the Disboards! Thanks for dropping by. I see you just updated your DR and Yachtsman got a 5/5! I completely agree!

Meeting all the Disers was definitely a highlight. I have to say that I didn't want to reveal DDW but he insisted so yeah, I was pretty excited!

Hi Lisa29! Thanks for reading. Em is planning this next trip so we'll see if she is like me and changes any ADRs 6 times before our trip!

Well, hopefully I can get to my BOG review before your trip- but I assure you that WE LOVED BOG!!!! It was wonderful and honestly, I don't think there is a bad seat in the house!

I wish that I could join you and Emmy!
