Looks like you have a great start on your clothing for the trip!! Can you believe I don't own a single Disney shirt??? I will have to take care of that on our trip!!

Congrats on hitting 3 weeks!! You are just 4 days behind us!

That's hillarious that your doggie also does the licking the air thing when you blow in his face. It drives our Lexie crazy too but it's so silly.

I absolutely adore doggies
Thanks for the dog pictures, good looking group, I bet it gets a little crazy when people come to visit. I have some really good ones of our dog from christmas last year I will have to post.

And without having a disney shirt they still allowed you to post on the DIS, I think it is some kinda prerequist that you have to have a disney shirt to post. I guess we can let you slide if you promise to get one before you go or just get a bunch while you are down there.

We kept trying to catch you on the countdown but for some reason when I drop a day, you also drop a day what is up with that.

I think they still allow me on the DIS, because I have spent major amounts of money on Disney stuff for the kids - especially Grace! That girl is princess crazy!! Yes, I promise to buy a Disney shirt once I am there.

You can't catch us, because we are just too fast!!!

I am sorry if this is a hijack, but I know this answer and I have so many TRs I'm subbed to, I can't remember whose is whose anymore!

BUT - 9 Dragons is plated, unless you order one of the samplers that feeds 2 or 4, then it's family (and there's only 2 samplers at lunch and dinner - 2 people sampler and 4 people sampler).

General's chicken is spicy, but dee-lish!!! The hones sesame chicken is good too. I vote for the general, in fact, in September, that's what I'm getting. (my daughter will get the honey sesame chicken!)

Many trip reports I've read just aren't interesting enough to entice me to read beyond the first page, but yours is great, Dan. Including the mini trip report from your honeymoon last year was a good idea.

Man, I wish I could speak fluent Donald Duck again. I can still sound like him, especially his laugh and the noises he makes when he's angry, but ever since I had my wisdom teeth removed, it's very difficult to produce intelligible words in that voice. My mom, who can also immitate Donald, experienced the same problem after she had her wisdom teeth removed. Strange, huh?

Does WDW announce the dates for free dining in advance, or does one just find out by surprise when they happen to book a trip during that time period? We loved using the dining plan last month, but free dining would be so much better.

BTW, Chip is too cute (your dog, not the one who stole your wife...lol)! He reminds me of our Shih Tzu Alvin (named for a non-Disney chipmunk...lol), except that Alvin has more black (turning gray) fur than white.

Anyway, hope y'all have a great anniversary trip in a few weeks!

No need to apoligize, you are not hijacking. Thanks for the info. We love general's chicken, but like the bourbon chicken at mall food courts better. We might have to get two different things and share. That sounds like a good plan.

and thanks for joining. We are trying to keep it interesting. There will be more reports from our trip last year to come, I just have to upload the pics and type something up. I love when people can do the voice, I think it is awesome, because it is really not a normal sound to make.

I know that this year they announced the free dining, in the Spring sometime and at first it was only for disney visa card holders to sign up. Then they opened it up to everyone. It was available for a few months before they stopped it. I believe that last year it was available to everyone who was going to disney during the time. This year I heard that only a certain number of rooms in each hotel could get it, and they shortened the amount of days that it was available for by about 2 weeks I think. Someone can correct me if I am wrong on that.

Feel free to throw a pic of your dog on here, I have a few more I am going to post later.

A special offer to the first PM I recieve....

DW bought one of the unofficial guide books for our trip this year. They have a bunch of different coupons in the back. There is one for a 50 dollar disney gift card when you sign up for a Disney Visa card. We already have one so it can't help us out any. We will give you the code on the coupon and you can start enjoying the perks.

I am offering it to the first person that sends me a PM. This is how ours worked when we got it. We signed up for the card and once we were approved, we were given a credit to use on the disney shopping website, and when we went to check out we entered our code and were given the discount.

The Disney Visa card is what you can use for discounts at different shopping stores in DTD. I think it is 10-20% off. It is also used to get into the special card member only character great in Epcot, where you get 1 free 5x7 photo with the characters.

Best of all, if you have the card, and they offer the free dining again next year, you should be able to sign up before everyone else.

Let me know if anyone is interested.

I found these two old scanned (pre-digital) pics of Alvin on my computer at work this morning. I'll look for a better, more recent pic when I'm at home.

I can't believe you don't have any disney attire either. Ofcourse you have kids you need to buy for, so that is a good excuse right there. We just have ourselves at the moment. It is now under 3 weeks! Tomorrow we will be in the teens! WooHoo!!!

Thank you for the info! I am going to be torn between the General and the honey sesame. Maybe I can talk DH into getting the sampler plates so we get a mix of things.

I'm glad you like the thread. DH did a good job starting it. He gets in it a little more than I do though. I just can't find things to talk about because I don't want to bore people. When it gets closer to the trip I will have more things to say. Thanks for the compliment about our dog. Your's is very cute as well. Chip had an almost all black face and two big black marks on his back when he was a puppy, now those have almost faded away to a very light brown color.

I like trip reports where both spouses post. My wife is rather shy and never posts messages at online forums (Why be shy on the internet? It's not as if people are looking at you. Well, they may be looking at photos of you, but you know what I mean...LOL). Glad you liked the pics of Alvin. I'll find a better pic later. Is Chip a Shih Tzu or a mixed breed?

Tell her not to be shy, it is fun to come out and share with people what you did, and you get both sides of the story, DW and I seem to have two different stories for everything, oh well, it makes it fun to read that way. hehe.

He is a malti poo. A mix between a maltese and a poodle.
