Your plans sound great so far . I would try to bank some points too, good thinking. You have alot to celebrate on this trip. Next year we want to go to Disney during our 10th Anniversary or close to it at least.

Thanks Nichole! By banking the points, next year we can do a 1 bedroom or try to do 2 trips! If we lived closer it would be a no brainer because we could drive easily but flying twice can be expensive. I will be posting our list of restaurant choices/wish list soon!

We just booked a June visit with the buy 4 days, get 3 free deal, so I wanted to see your plans.

DVC sounds exciting. DH and I have been talking about it, mainly for a chance to do Hilton Head. But he also wants to stay at AKL someday. For now, POR will have to suffice.

Sorry I have been somewhat missing and haven't updated in awhile! We have been very busy! We celebrated Eric's 7th birthday last Sunday! I can't believe he is 7, where the heck did the time go? He desperately wanted a Rock Band party and he has also been begging for an electric guitar! Well we decided to get him one ...



He plays it CONSTANTLY! We have gotten used to the noise! We don't want to squash is dream and stop him from playing just incase he ends up being a huge musical star one day The guitar theme carried over to his cake..



A picture of Bryan, Eric and I....



Eric standing next to a sign we ordered for him.......



He had alot of fun and got a few Disney gift cards that he is itching to spend!!


OK so in exactly 9 days I get to call and make our Saratoga Springs Ressie! I have spent many hours debating over our requests and here is what we will be aiming for (listed in order of importance)

1. Grandstand section (1st bus stop for pickup & drop off)
2. High Floor (can't have creepy crawly bugs getting in our room)
3. Close to quiet pool or bus stop

Send some pixie dust our way that we get our requests!

We have decided to do the DELUXE DINING PLAN!! I know it sounds like we will be a slave to eating but.........like I have said before, there are many restaurants that we would like to try and the park time isn't as much of an issue as it used to be because with the DVC we know we will be back! Another bonus is that you have until midnight of your check out day to use up your dining credits and although we are checking out of SSR we will be moving over to the Animal Kingdom Villas and stretch our credits to 11 days instead of 10. We have agonized over this for many days and hours According to our calculations, the deluxe plan will save us about $400! So, without delaying any longer here are our ADR choices...

Breakfasts

Crystal Palace (twice)
Tusker House (twice)
Chef Mickey's
Ohana*

Lunches

Rose and Crown*
Teppan Edo*
Liberty Tree Tavern*
Yak & Yeti
Sci Fi*

Dinners

Kona Cafe
Mama Melrose
Ohana
Cape May Cafe*
50's Primetime*
California Grill*
LeCellier
1900 Park Fare*
Hoop Dee Doo Revue*
Yachtsman Steakhouse*
Boma

The ones with an* by them will be new to us!

Can anyone say WEIGHT WATCHERS!!!!! Please we welcome any comments or opinions!

Coming up soon will be our tentative itinerary and I will explain how and where all these ADR'S fit in!!

On a side note, we tried to take some pictures of the boys today for our holiday cards and thought I would share them here with you!





The boys being goofy!

Be prepared to be full with the DxDP. But I can totally relate. If we could afford it, we'd be doing it again. It's so nice to sit and have someone serve you dinner rather than wait in line at CS places and whatnot.

I like the last holiday picture, fwiw.

Thanks Amanda! Being full was our big sticking point with DxDP but Matthew has a pretty big appetite for a kid so I figured I would give him some of our appetizers and desserts! Thanks for the sweet comment about the pics!
