I am very excited! My DH is currently fighting a brain tumor and this trip is the light at the end of the tunnel for us. We stayed at POR for our honeymoon back when it was Dixie Landings and LOVED it. I think we were in Oak Manor. We thought it would be great for us to all stay at the same resort on our first visit to the world (this is DD's first trip).

Joining in for the planning. Don't think I'll be playing the games since I have a hard enough time keeping up. Love all the shopping you did. I'm a bit bummed that I didn't take advantage of the sale this past weekend, but they didn't have the stuff DD was looking for. Her current favorite princess is Ariel so she would have wanted her ball gown, which I couldn't find.

Ooh, first trip sans stroller. Good luck! We have decided to bring the umbrella stroller on this trip. We haven't used it since our last Disney trip, but we aren't positive that she would make it through the whole day at Disney yet.

Too bad we don't live near each other so we could shop for the girls together. I have a feeling we would buy many similar items. I am already stressed that I feel like I don't have enough time to pull together cute touring outfits for her.

Love the Aurora dress!! I picked up a Belle dress on clearance (the old longer style) for Sophie to wear to Akershus. I'm working on Easter basket shopping but seriously hampered by the fact that I give up online shopping for lent.

I wear TOMS in the parks all the time. I find them comfy as all get out.

Oh Yay!! Thank you!! I remembered reading in your last TR that Tortuga Tavern was Maddie's favorite and that your hubby wanted to try Earl of Sandwich. And then I took a wild guess with Be Our Guest. Even though I picked it for a dinner ADR, it sounds like the QS lunch is a must-do too!

WOW, I love the Aurora dress and the Jasmine swimsuit! It's taking all the will power that I have right now NOT to head over the Disney Store site for some "browsing" haha.

I can't believe you are not going to Via Napoli! Other than that, your choices look great!!

The Aurora dress is so pretty! Also, I want that Jasmine nightgown for myself (well, I'd take it as a t-shirt and pants combo).

Glad I made some good choices! The clothes for Maddie are so cute. I can't wait to be able to shop for all that someday with a Disney trip to look forward too. I'm thinking this inside baby might be 3 for his/her first trip. Not sure I can hold out to 4!

I LOVE the Aurora dress! Maddie is going to be such a stunning little Sleeping Beauty. And the Jasmine nightgown is too cute. What good finds!

I am actually really excited that you chose different restaurants this trip. You did such a great job reviewing the ones you visited last time, so I am excited to read what you think of the newbies.

You certainly found some great sales! I love everything! Can't wait to see Maddie in all her finery and that great family shot in front the castle with the matching Mickey vintage tees!

So.... looks like there's more to this ADR game... gotta figure that one out!

Thanks for sharing all the pictures of your shopping treasures! Karen

Didn't do too bad in the game yay!! lol! Love all the ADR choices!

Love, love all the Disney store items! I bought like 12 of the small plushes when they were BOGO (plus my Disney visa 10%), to give as favors for the kids attending our wedding, and a couple extra for my DD Ava of course

Zulily has Toms right now, awesome prices, I saw they added stock yesterday but the sale ends in 8 hrs, so if you see this before then, might be with a look

I had the same thought on the Aurora dress, but I didn't end up grabbing it because the girls chose other ones .

What's the Never Girls??? I've never heard of it! Looks like something we might enjoy!

I should have done the guessing game, darn it! I would have rocked it!

I love the Aurora dress...Maddie will be adorable in it! I really like the nightgowns and bathing suits, too...I think the Jasmine suit is my favorite. You guys are going to look so cute in your matching T-shirts!
