Wow!! I'm still in the top 10 of the ADR Guessing Game! How exciting!

Before I offer up my choices for this week, I just wanted to comment on your experience with the Disney Rumor board. I often visit the disABILITIES board. While most contributors offer up friendly tips and compassionate answers, there have been some really snarky comments. Our oldest son is severely autistic and non verbal. He vocalizes loudly and flaps when he is excited. He is six years old. His twin brothers are five and his baby sister is two. We enjoy quality family time and often visit area zoos and museums, but it is difficult to make sure everyone gets the most out of the experience. We took our first family trip to Disney World in January of 2012. It was the BEST time of our lives. We were welcomed with open arms and everyone was unbelievably accommodating. We were finally able to just relax and enjoy each other without having to worry about the impatient and intolerant individuals we usually have the pleasure of meeting while out and about. Maybe we were just lucky and never encountered obnoxious guests or CMs, but I find that hard to believe. My point is (after ALL that!) that you get what you pay for. Yes, Disney is a business, but it is an exceptional business. It is a place where ALL families can go and have the kind of life experiences that will be cherished and remembered forever.

Okay...now I'll step off my soapbox! Onto my choices:
Signature/Celebrity: Citricos
Character Dinner: Be Our Guest
Table Service: Boma
Counter Service: Casey's

ADR Choice: Cinderella's Royal Table

Finally, I just want to say that the videos are wonderful. What a generous and thoughtful thing to do. And Maddie's sparkly skirt is my favorite so far. I would so buy one for my daughter if you do ever open that Etsy store!

Signature/Celebrity Chef

5 Citricos

Character/Dinner Show

5 Be Our Guest (the Beast got them into Character) vs. 12 1900 Park Fare (dinner)

Ooh this is a hard one! The evil stepsisters and stepmother are really the best part of 1900 park fare, but be our guest has the decor, and is really new, so which should I vote for?

I'm gonna go with 1900 park fare ( I tend to go with the underdog, though I see I'm not the only one voting for them!)

Table Service

5 Boma one of the best restaurants in Disney, IMHO.

Counter Service

5 Casey's

Just catching back up1. I love all of your sewing! That pink skirt is terrific!

The post "with the sappiness" is exactly a conversation I had with my Brian this past week at WDW. Like you, even though I know Disney is a business, it is a place of happiness, laughter, dreams and memories for us. To see my little man's face light up there warms my heart and makes all of the planning worth it! I am so happy to have the group of friends I have made thru TRs and PTRs! It's such an uplifting place to be!

I almost do not want to guess CRT for your ADR after BBB, because it seems too obvious..but sometimes the obvious choice is obvious for a reason, so I will say Cinderella's Royal Table.

Ps you should see how ridiculously excited I am to be tied at 9th place right now, I NEVER do well at these types of games.

The skirt you made is absolutely adorable, and I do love the twinkle in your model's eyes.

As for my pics:

Signature...have no idea; I've nto read a lot on Citricos and never heard of the other one

Character -- Be Our Guest without a doubt...loved it in December

Table Service -- we've only done Boma for breakfast so can't comment on their dinner; we've done Raglan Road twice now and enjoyed it both times

Counter Service -- I cannot pick one; I got sick at Casey's, and I did not like Tangerine at all

ToF!!!!!.... (see what I did there...using the beloved ToT lololol , I crack myself up!)

Citricos....I haven't dined at either but I would love to try Citrcos plus I love the GF

Be Our Guest, this was tough bc the characters at PF are awesome but the new castle and the Beast, I just had to pick BoG!

Boma...I think I would love both and I had a hard time with these two when making my ADRs ultimately I picked a Boma breakfast bc all the reviews were amazing and I love AKL!

Casey's, I just like it lol!

For ADR game I chose, CRT!! This was a tough one but she's going to be all princessy so I'm gonna say she's going to her castle

Love, love the skirt and the modeling, she's adorable!! I wish I could make clothes!! Oh and I just got a chance to watch the princess videos.....ADORABLE!! She must have loved that!

Hence the Fantasmic Package for this trip. I know that the seating isn't the greatest, but it's better than waiting for hours. Maddie has watched a Youtube video of the show and LOVED it. She would like to see Fantasmic "every single night". Hopefully once will do.
I completely agree with this. I love Fantasmic! but the sea of humanity that you have to wait in and navigate to see it just takes a lot of the magic out of it. The last couple of times have worked well for us, because we've gone during slower times and went on a night there were 2 shows and saw the second. It's well worth seeing when you can pretty much walk right up before show time and find a seat. I think the dining pacakge is the way to go. It's not like there are really any "bad" seats anyway.

She's the princess and she isn't about to let anyone forget that!

Nice job on the weekly sewing project.

And it looks like Maddie approves of it too.



Ok for the tournament:

Monsieur Paul - I have no idea why I'm picking it, but I am

Be Our Guest - It is going to take something pretty impressive to take this one down.

Boma - Haven't been there, but it is one of my "short list" restaurants to try.

Caseys - Love a good chili dog or corn dog nuggets.




ADR Guess: Well, I've thought too much and I've got myself confused. With a BBB appointment the logical first guess is CRT based on past history. Then I started thinking that is too easy. She said there's a BBB appointment so everyone is going to guess CRT. Then I started thinking maybe Maddie will get the Belle treatment and go see the Beast. After going back and forth on this one, I'll stick with the old standby CRT, and I'll probably be wrong.

I also think you will be eating at CRT, it seems like a given if you are going to BBB that morning.

Table Service

5 Boma vs. 12 Raglan Road


Counter Service

5 Casey's vs. 12 Tangerine Cafe

Ok, here are my picks:

Signature/Celebrity Chef: Citricos. Our meal there in October was fabulous!

Character/Dinner Show: 1900 Park Fare. I haven't been to either of these but I hear so many fabulous things about PF that it really makes me want to eat there.

Table Service: Raglan Road. The menu here just interests me the most.

Counter Service: Tangeriene Cafe. I've gotten sick from eating at Casey's once so I definitely won't choose them. And I really do want to try Tangerine Cafe - maybe next year!

Day 3 will find us at the MK with an early morning BBB appointment. We only have one reservation-for dinner.
I'm guessing Be Our Guest for this day.

And your plans for DHS are looking really good! Can't wait to see what y'all think of Yachtsmen. That's a place high up on our "to try" list.

Maddie's skirt is too cute....and so is she!

My votes:

Signature/Celebrity Chef: Citricos.
Character/Dinner Show: Be Our Guest
Table Service: Boma
Counter Service: Tangeriene Cafe.


Definitely some hard picks

And, your ADR dinner tradition says after BBB, it must be CRT (although BOG would be a close second)

Beautiful Maddie photo shoot, as always.


There is no way that you can do BBB without going to eat in the Castle, so I will say your day 3 ADR is Cinderella's Royal Table.

For the food tournament, here are my votes:

Signature/Celebrity Chef
Citricos

Character/Dinner Show
Be Our Guest (I was tempted to vote for the underdog here, since I've heard so many great things about the interaction from the step-sisters at Park Fare)

Table Service
Boma

Counter Service
Casey's
Thanks Mel! I really think she'd like the animation class. We'll see if we can fit it in between all of the shows we need to see.

And, thanks for playing!

Citricos


Character/Dinner Show
Be Our Guest - this is on my list for next time!!


Table Service

Casey's - who doesnt enjoy a good hot dog???

DERN - I totally missed the Day#2 ADRs....well, except for H&V.....BUT YEAH for YM!! That was one of my favorite dinners on our last trip!!

and Maddie....she is SUCH the cutie and the best model - and that sparkly, flippy skirt....TO.DIE.FOR!!!!

and I would sport a crown of jewels all the time if I could!!

Thanks for playing! We are really looking forward to dinner at the Yachtsman, I really hope that we love it.

You should try the tiara thing-maybe people would embrace it?

Thanks so much Queen! If we lived closer I would sew all of your buttons for you.

They both have amazing food, BOG has the best atmosphere in the world, and 1900 has the most perfect character interaction. UGH! UhmÖI am going to have to vote for Be Our Guest though, I feel like, overall, it was just more impressive. If you end up not getting the Step sisters at the dinner, it might not be worth it, and I canít even look at pictures of BOG without crying, so it wins, lawl!

-Boma: amazing food, seriously, I cannot wait until I can go back here. Plus you get the added benefit of seeing AKL, itís gorgeous! I loved that there were more African flavored options, and so many different choices there!

-Caseys: Itís a Disney classic, you canít get through a trip without eating here. And the cartoons in the back, SUPER CUTE. But seriously, corn dog nuggetsÖ.

AAAAHHHH Maddie has a derpy Perry shirt! ADORABLE! I love him! I also REALLY like the whole Sofia the First thing, the movie is super cute, and honestly, itís playhouse Disney I can stand to watch, I tried to watch Jake one day but itís a little too much like Dora for me! Lol Jake however is super adorbs, not surprised Maddie loves him!

I suggest for Woody and Buzz to go straight to TSM at rope drop, grab a fp, jump in standby, and after riding standby, jump right into the toyís meeting line! We did that last month and it worked wonderfully!

Youíve never seen Fantasmic?! WHAT?! Lol, itís pretty great! I have to say if I had kids in tow, Iíd be getting the dinner pkg too, just to not have to wait that long, hopefully you guys really enjoy it!

YAAAAAYY IíM IN THE LEAD FOR THE ADR GAME!!! Bahahaha, but seriously, I started super lateÖIím good at these thingsÖ

HmmmÖ.Iím going to guess that youíre doing CRT on this MK day, considering youíve got the BBB in the morning, I FEEL like that makes senseÖ.it could be BOGÖ.but Iím going with CRT!

ETA: AH! I missed the last update somehow

Saw the Lilo dress on facebook, itís super cute! Also love the shirt. Baha! I so donít do pants either, I wish I lived somewhere warmer! Iím all about the shorts, yoga pants, capris, dresses, hate jeans, hate hate hate them. Maddie and I are so the same lol.

Oh my goodness Maddie is just the cutest thing ever, sheís already doing the perfect princess poses! She definitely is one! Iím also in love with that tiara!


You are cracking me up! I'm sorry that I made the choices so hard for you!

Thanks for the tip on Woody and Buzz. We'll try it. I'm hoping that the character lines will be more manageable than they were last spring!

I'm glad someone understands Maddie-I'm always in a t-shirt and jeans. It's practically my uniform!

I have to admit that I've never really understand March Madness or brackets or anything, so all the 'seed' talk is pretty lost on me, BUT it's fun to vote so whatever!

Voting for... Citricos, Be Our Guest, Boma, and Casey's.

Okay, so I've never done the drawing class with a child, but I did do it with my little brother with down syndrome, and I have to say that he did a WONDERFUL job following directions. So I feel like if Maddie is already good at drawing, she should enjoy herself there.

DANG, I'm tied for FIRST?! WHAT? Hhaha, awesome!!! I didn't expect that. My guess for this round is Be Our Guest.

That skirt is ADORABLE, oh my good gracious. Love it!!
Another Seacrest lover!

Thanks for your help with the Animation Class. We might try it. I'm a little nervous about explaining what an animator is since she's on the cusp of not believing in Mickey and the princesses already. I bet if we just call it a 'drawing class' we'd be able to get away with it.

I feel like I've been walking on clouds all day!!!

My choices for the next matchups are:
Signature/Celebrity Chef
Citricos


Character/Dinner Show
Be Our Guest


Table Service
Boma


Counter Service
Tangerine Cafe


The pink sparkle twirl skirt is just amazing! It's the perfect match for that t-shirt!!- which I love by the way! And boy is Carissa lucky to get matching outfits too! You might have to invest in a Bedazzeler for her glass slipper top lol
So glad that you got your ADRs! It's such a great feeling isn't it? And so much more fun once they're locked in. Now it's time for tinkering with them. At least that's what I do.

Thank you! I love that shirt. I may actually have to buy a bedazzler.

My Votes:
1. Citricos
2. 1900 Park Faire I decided to base it on character interaction even though it's definitely the underdog.
3. Boma. Breakfast is on the top of my list for the next time. Kiddos will have to deal with a meal without characters
4. Caseys

For your reservation, I'm saying CRT.
Thank you so much! And thank you for voting. I think that Boma sounds awesome. I think we'll try it when Maddie is a little older (and more adventurous)

I love that sparkly, flouncy skirt...great job! Carissa must be the best dressed doll in town!

Hmmm...for your ADR, I'm going to say CRT because BBB and CRT just seem to go together!
I love that she reminds you of your niece! You described Maddie to a T.

Carissa has already filled her little closet.

tangeriine cafe because we actually ate here last trip and it was delicious!


My guess, as many others have said, is for CRT because Maddie will be all done up from BBB. Does she have any ideas what princess she wants to be this time?

Carissa's Lilo dress and the skirt matching Maddie's are so adorable! My grandma used to make our AG dolls clothes to match us and I've kept them all! Love it.

Maddie's photoshoot is downright adorable. The skirt came out amazing. You're so talented! That looks pretty complicated to make. She looks like she's been doing some growing up too! Tell her to cut that out rotfl.
Thank you so much Courtney! The skirt wasn't complicated at all! Love that it looks fancy though!

I tell her every day to stop growing. She says that it's impossible, but "I'll always be your baby girl mommy"

Finally, I just want to say that the videos are wonderful. What a generous and thoughtful thing to do. And Maddie's sparkly skirt is my favorite so far. I would so buy one for my daughter if you do ever open that Etsy store!
I love that you shared your experience! I read it a few times, and it warmed my heart. Disney World is the best isn't it?

Thanks so much! I'll let you know about the Etsy shop-I have a few projects that I'm under a time restraint with, but I may do it soon!

Ooh this is a hard one! The evil stepsisters and stepmother are really the best part of 1900 park fare, but be our guest has the decor, and is really new, so which should I vote for?

I'm gonna go with 1900 park fare ( I tend to go with the underdog, though I see I'm not the only one voting for them!)

Table Service

5 Boma one of the best restaurants in Disney, IMHO.

Counter Service

Thanks for voting! I have heard such amazing things about Boma. We're gonna have to try it some day.

The post "with the sappiness" is exactly a conversation I had with my Brian this past week at WDW. Like you, even though I know Disney is a business, it is a place of happiness, laughter, dreams and memories for us. To see my little man's face light up there warms my heart and makes all of the planning worth it! I am so happy to have the group of friends I have made thru TRs and PTRs! It's such an uplifting place to be!
It really is! Thanks so much for being one of my Disfrends!

Ps you should see how ridiculously excited I am to be tied at 9th place right now, I NEVER do well at these types of games.
You're doing great! and, there are many more points to be had!

As for my pics:

Signature...have no idea; I've nto read a lot on Citricos and never heard of the other one

Character -- Be Our Guest without a doubt...loved it in December

Table Service -- we've only done Boma for breakfast so can't comment on their dinner; we've done Raglan Road twice now and enjoyed it both times

Counter Service -- I cannot pick one; I got sick at Casey's, and I did not like Tangerine at all
Thanks Kathy! I hope you're enjoying your trip!

Citricos....I haven't dined at either but I would love to try Citrcos plus I love the GF

Be Our Guest, this was tough bc the characters at PF are awesome but the new castle and the Beast, I just had to pick BoG!

Boma...I think I would love both and I had a hard time with these two when making my ADRs ultimately I picked a Boma breakfast bc all the reviews were amazing and I love AKL!

Casey's, I just like it lol!

For ADR game I chose, CRT!! This was a tough one but she's going to be all princessy so I'm gonna say she's going to her castle

Love, love the skirt and the modeling, she's adorable!! I wish I could make clothes!! Oh and I just got a chance to watch the princess videos.....ADORABLE!! She must have loved that!
I love ToF!! Awesome!

Thanks for playing, and thanks for the kind words. She LOVED those videos!

The last couple of times have worked well for us, because we've gone during slower times and went on a night there were 2 shows and saw the second. It's well worth seeing when you can pretty much walk right up before show time and find a seat. I think the dining pacakge is the way to go. It's not like there are really any "bad" seats anyway.


She's the princess and she isn't about to let anyone forget that!

Nice job on the weekly sewing project.

And it looks like Maddie approves of it too.



Ok for the tournament:

Monsieur Paul - I have no idea why I'm picking it, but I am

Be Our Guest - It is going to take something pretty impressive to take this one down.

Boma - Haven't been there, but it is one of my "short list" restaurants to try.

Caseys - Love a good chili dog or corn dog nuggets.




ADR Guess: Well, I've thought too much and I've got myself confused. With a BBB appointment the logical first guess is CRT based on past history. Then I started thinking that is too easy. She said there's a BBB appointment so everyone is going to guess CRT. Then I started thinking maybe Maddie will get the Belle treatment and go see the Beast. After going back and forth on this one, I'll stick with the old standby CRT, and I'll probably be wrong.
We're excited to see Fantasmic, but the waiting and exiting are what have held us back. If they add a second show we'll definitely do that one. It sounds like it's always less crowded.

You know, you kept Citricos from getting a clean sweep!

Thanks for playing! I'll reveal the ADR next week!

Signature/Celebrity Chef: Citricos. Our meal there in October was fabulous!

Character/Dinner Show: 1900 Park Fare. I haven't been to either of these but I hear so many fabulous things about PF that it really makes me want to eat there.

Table Service: Raglan Road. The menu here just interests me the most.

Counter Service: Tangeriene Cafe. I've gotten sick from eating at Casey's once so I definitely won't choose them. And I really do want to try Tangerine Cafe - maybe next year!



I'm guessing Be Our Guest for this day.

And your plans for DHS are looking really good! Can't wait to see what y'all think of Yachtsmen. That's a place high up on our "to try" list.

Maddie's skirt is too cute....and so is she!
Thanks for playing Amanda! I think Reid might actually get a kick out of the stepsisters antics! They'd probably try to marry him though.

Thanks Amanda!

Definitely some hard picks

And, your ADR dinner tradition says after BBB, it must be CRT (although BOG would be a close second)

Karen
Thanks for voting and for playing Karen! I'll reveal the ADR next week!
