Well, I got pretty much everything that I wanted. Things got a little messed up with CRT, but we are scheduled to have a meal there. Here's what our days look like:

October 20
5:00 pm Chef Mickey's

October 21
8:05 am Crystal Palace
5:40 pm CRT (however, our party of 5 is divided between 2 tables)

October 22
10:10 am Tusker House (much later than I wanted, but it was that or 2 tables again)
*hoping to call on Friday and get Yak and Yeti for supper

October 23
8:00 am Ohana
5:45 pm Tony's

October 24
8:30 am Askershus
6:00 pm Coral Reef

October 25
8:55 am Cape May Cafe
4:40 pm 1900 Park Fare
9:00 pm California Grill (just me and DH)

October 26
8:05 am Holllywood and Vine
7:00 pm Brown Derby

I'm still a little perturbed about CRT................DH timed it, and I had a person on the phone 50 seconds after 7:00, and they didn't have any breakfasts for the entire week that we are there. We'll have to figure something out, but it will probably end up being my mom and DD #2 at a separate table. Can I ask when we get there if there is any way they can seat us together?

Glad you got most of the ressies that you wanted! As for CRT I would keep calling to check. We called to make a reservation for 8 people and get extremely lucky - someone had cancelled and there was an opening. Also they sat us at two table next to each other (it was along a booth so I think we just pushed the tables together). Hopefully they will do the same for you!

As long as the tables are close to each other, it's not big deal. I'm just worried that we'll be on opposite sides of the restaurant or something .

I think the having to have two tables is a computer thing, something about how they have to put reservations in Once you are at the restaurant you will more than likely be put at one table. I watched them seat a party of 16 all together at CRT, 5 shouldn't be a problem.

Awesome! Good Job! Just keep callin' about CRT. However, it might be ok with the two tables, you might end up being right next to each other. Just keep callin' an' buggin' them!

I would keep calling crt not only two be seated together, but also to see if there are any openings for breakfast. Dinner is nice, but the princesses aren't at dinner. Only breakfast. All your adr's look great I'm glad you got what you wanted.

Well, called back in today and got Yak & Yeti on the 22nd at 4:30. Now all I have to do is call tomorrow for the BBB on the 23rd and May 1 for the MNSSHP. Then everything will be ready to go .

Girldreamer~We're also doing Askershus and 1900 Park Fare for the princesses, so I'm not too worried about that. Mostly I want CRT for the atmosphere and being able to eat with my daughter inside the castle. We're also hoping to do the BBB in the castle because it doesn't have the Hannah Montana makeover. She did that one at Libby Lu (for a much lower cost), and I know she'd try to pick that one again and we'd end up trying to deal with a fit. I'm going to do a makeover too, and DH is going to do the "Cool Dude".

Girldreamer~I just went through and looked at your trip report. I love the videos your DF did! I'm hoping to do something like that, and we just got a new video camera to take with us. I'm going to play with it some before we go so that I have a better idea of how to use it. However, I think DH will be operating it, and I'll spend most of my time with over regular camera. I was just asking him yesterday if he thought that our memory card was big enough or if we would need another one to take along (ours holds just over 900 pictures ). I'm kind of a picture freak, so I'm just not sure.

Aww thank you. I think he did a god job too! If you aren't taking a computer to dump your pictures every night once you get back to the resort I would def get another memory card especially if you are a picture freak. There were days when we shot at least 300 pictures and we were there for 7 days. Just to give ya an idea b/c we are picture freaks too! Between our pictures and our photopass cd we ended up with a little over 1600 pictures. Good luck to me deciding which ones make the scrapbook, which I still haven't started yet. Video cameras are so much fun! I can't wait for you to come back and tell us all about it. Hehe. Df told me last night he might book disney today for dec so we'll see what happens when he gets home.

We are going to get the Photopass CD as well, but I think we'll probably get another memory card. We've talked about taking the laptop along, but I don't think that we will.

I scrapbook too, but I think for the Disney pictures I'm just going to try to find a photo album for each park and do it that way. I don' think I'd ever get the scrapbook done. I'm already behind on both of my girls' scrapbooks. We're also thinking about putting together one of the photobooks from the Photopass site for my mom's Christmas present.

Well, I got the BBB appointments made for the castle......no problem. We got the exact times and stuff that we wanted. DD will be doing the Castle package, I will be doing the Coach package, and DH is doing the Cool Dude.

DH is being a great sport about everything, and it should make for really good pictures! He's even agreed to have his face painted (with something masculine, of course). We're going to try to get a good family picture for our Christmas cards .

aww thats so awesome that dh is going with the flow. I got one of those rub on tattoos when we were in disney in dec of 06' and df got one too. What a good sport he is. Hehe. I don't think I could swing the face paint with him, but thats okay b/c I hate stuff on my face so its all good. I'm behind on scrapbooks to, but once I sit down and start doing it I can get quite a bit done. i've gotten 5 pages done this week, which may be not seem like a lot, but it takes me a while to do each page so thats a lot for me. You can send them to me and I'll do them. Haha. I made one for my sister in law for her two kids and she loved it!

Well, I could keep you working for a while. The only one that is completely finished is DD #1's first year (she's 5 now, so that should give you an idea ). I bought a scrapbook for DD #2, but i haven't done anything on it yet.

DH is usually a pretty good sport about most things, especially if it will make his little girls smile. He has come a long way since we first got married, and he's made huge amounts of "daddy progress" since DD #2 was born.

aww I love it. Being kept busy would be a blessing at this point. Most of my wedding planning is winding down so I am getting kind of on the bored side as I don't currently work. Long story short...I was df's assistant and he works for a pipeline company as a field office manager. This job is small so they don't need me this time around, but when we go to a bigger job they'll need me again. So basically I have to find ways to fill my time. Hehe. Since I don't have kids and my dog has to live with my parents I get kind of bored sometimes. Scrapbooking is tons of fun! Thats so cute about your dh! I love it! Okay its time to clean the house. Yet another time filler, but also productive and makes me happy b/c I hate dust and all that.
