soooorrrrrryyyyy!!!! I didn't mean to confuse anyone...I thought that was a common abbreviation...but then again, I picked that up on the Beach and Yacht Club thread over on the Disney Resorts Forum!

Page 1 shows the 2 highlight posts of ADRs and Schedule. Going in May, staying at BCV, ADRs at 6 new restaurants (!), spending time at SAB = Stormalong Bay. Going with parents for part of the time again which means we get a date night! Going to make more crafts again for trip. Doing Pirate and Princess Party.

Looking forward to the crafts you will be doing ---- last year you gave me some great ideas for things to make for my two grandkids (ages 2 and 5). Of course they were not as detailed as yours, but came out great and the kids loved them. Even made door and window decor last year --- which was a first for me. Thanks again for sharing

Subsribed to your PTR... we are going the first full week of May also It will be DH's 5 or 6th trip, but he isn't into planning. Its my 2nd trip, and DD (18 months) 1st trip. I need lots of help! We are staying off site, and planning on 3 or 4 park days. Now I have to try and book some ADRs. Also, any advice on a must do character meal with DD??

Welcome! And I hope to see you somewhere in the parks! Make sure you have some Lime Green Mickey Heads (LGMH)s on you so other DISsers know you DIS (in case you don't know these are the Alien Green color paint chip samples from Home Depot in the shape of Mickey Mouse. You can put your DIS screen name on it or decorate it however you like and then when you meet other DISsers you can trade LGMHs).

With an 18 month old, definitely plan to take lots of breaks, don't overdo the parks -- maybe only pick 2 (no more than 3) parks to go to the whole week. We didn't introduce our 26 month old to the characters until after she saw them for a few days from a distance. I know Disney is expensive and sometimes you feel like you have to 'do it all' but with a young one, you can't do it all and you won't be happy trying.

We really enjoyed the Cape May Cafe breakfast at the Beach Club. The characters were not rushed at all (like they are at Chef Mickeys). I know a lot of my DIS friends and parents really like Crystal Palace in MK but I haven't been there.

Sorry, I don't have more suggestions for character meals as CMC and CM were my first ones!

If you have other specific questions, just ask -- I'm sure we can all offer our suggestions!

We did Chef Mickey's a few years ago... it was fun but I wouldn't go there if your DD doesn't like loud... there is a lot of hoopin and hollerin in there.

We just did Garden Grill in November and LOVED it. The character interaction is wonderful there and the food was good too. It was a very relaxing meal ~ kind of the opposite of Chef Mickey's.

I know that others posting here have done LTT and CP... maybe they can help you out with reviews of those.

Yeah, I need to add Garden Grill to my list for our next trip. What kind of food did they have and is it lunch and dinner for character dining?
