Hey, Welcome back!! It's like family reunion week with everyone joining back in!

Once I get DD down for a nap, I'll come back and start listing my ADRs and you guys can tell me what you think. We are trying 6 new restaurants this trip!!! Surely you guys will have gone to some of them and can give me the AOK or not.

We bought in at SSR last March. Can't wait to add-on already! We've only stayed at SSR once when we rented points two years ago. Since we've been owners we stayed at OKW (June), VWL (Sept), and coming up this June DH and I will be staying at BWV. Can't wait!! Then I have to save the rest of my points for a Grand Villa (keep your fingers crossed) for our mega May 2009 vacation!

Glad to join you again! and that baby #2 will be tagging along on your trip!

Re: the cruise- we haven't done that yet either.....maybe someone else you were thinking of?

ADRs

Ok, here are the restaurants we chose. I tried to mix it up a bit so we are adding six new ones this time.

May 3 - no ADRs, since this is our Fly In day and not sure if we'll priceline or use Disney value hotel yet.

May 4 - Le Cellier Dinner with parents.
I don't know how this restaurant can have such favorable and ugly reviews?!? We've been there twice, once for lunch and once for dinner, several years apart and both times were fantastic -- steaks Med Rare, juicy, wonderful service, great bread!

May 5 - Coral Reef Lunch with parents.
I'm worried about this one. My mom wants to eat here so I agreed but the only comment I always here is "great scenery, bad food".

May 5 - Grand Floridian Cafe Dinner, DATE NIGHT!
Normally we go to Ca Grill or Narcoosee's for our date night, but we decided to try a 1 credit place this time. I'm also worried about this one -- not b/c of the food, I'm sure it will be good, but since it's our date night, we normally like to go to someplace extra nice and I'm not sure this qualifies. But since parents have volunteered to watch DD, we get a night out -- woo hoo!!!

May 6 - Spoodles Dinner with parents
This is another new restaurant for us. Since we'll be at the BCV, I wanted to choose a place we could walk to and explore the Boardwalk for one night.

May 7 - Norway Princess Dinner with parents
We've eaten at Norway before when it was not a princess dinner, so we wanted to try this one, esp as DD likes the princesses. I'm a bit worried since some other DIS friends went here and said the princesses just zoomed by and hardly interacted at all. I've been warned that food is kind of "bland" but we enjoyed it last time so hopefully it's still good.

May 8 - No ADRsThe plan is to go to Yak & Yeti Counter Service and try out their food for dinner. This is a pool day for us (so far!) and my parents leave to visit friends or one of the other parks (Cypress Gardens I think). Yak and Yeti is new for us.

May 9 - Hollywood and Dine Lunch
We'll take DD to this character meal. Last time we didn't go to MGM at all. I'm really hoping that they are going to change the characters for this lunch to match the show (Little Einsteins, Mickey Mouse, Handy Manny, etc). We haven't eaten here before and I don't hear much about it.

May 10 - San Angel Inn Dinner
Even though DD will be with us for this meal, I still think of this as a romantic place to eat. We haven't eaten here before but I'm really hoping we get a table where DD can watch the boats go by. That will keep her attention the whole meal! I may just tell them when we check in that we are willing to wait a bit longer in order to get the better table -- wonder if they will let us? Guess it depends on how busy they are...

May 11 - Le Cellier Lunch for Mother's Day with parents
My parents come back to join us for Mother's Day. Both mom and I agreed we wanted to eat here again. I'm hoping to try a non-steak entree just to get something different...but I know their steaks are just incredible!

May 12 - Go Home


So what do you think???

I'm not much help it would seem... haven't tried any of your places. I will say I haven't come across a bad LeCellier review in quite awhile! I also have heard that the princesses at Norway do drive-by interactions.

Thanks so much for saying DD looks like me! Really! When she was born EVERYONE said she was her Daddy's girl. Which is cool, too, but there's a part of me that just wants to be in her too!

Who is infamous #1?

Can't wait to hear how Grand Floridian Cafe is.


We did Hollywood and Vine for Breakfast.

June and Leo were there from Einsteins. JoJo and Goliath.

It would be cool if they added Handy Manny


Not familiar with the other ones...sorry

Drive by interactions -- gotta remember that term!

Oh, forgot that June and Leo are there -- are they face characters or costume characters?

Le Cellier sounds great. I've never been there, but I really want to go.

Akershus - YUCK! We had bad food and bad service there, but good princess interaction. We didn't have the "drive by." Watch out for Jasmine. She's a hottie. Your hubby will like her a lot.

I've never been to any of the other places, either. I actually canceled a reservation at the Grand Floridian Cafe and replaced it with a reservation for Whispering Canyon Cafe. I've heard bad things about San Angel and I've heard good things about it. I guess it depends on how much you like Mexican food.
