I am glad you got your countdown calender fixed! So I have to know what did you think of Twilight? DH and I went to the midnight showing Thrusday and we both loved it. I can't believe it but he offered to take me to see it again next Thrusday, and for him that is a huge thing. He is weird and only likes to watch movies once and I am the girl that saw Titanic in the theater 8 times.

I might have a huge binder but you have an amazing calendar...my NDH would probably commit me if I created one of those LOL!!
Thank you very much. I am coming out of my fog of sickness.

Louis.

"Sacrebleu! What is this? How on earth could I miss Such a sweet, little succulent crab, Quel dommage, what a loss! Here we go, in the sauce Now some flour, I think just a dab Now I'll stuff you with bread! It don't hurt, 'cause you're dead And you're certainly lucky you are 'Cause it's gonna be hot in my big silver pot Toodle-oo, mon poisson, au revoir!" - Louis, The Little Mermaid.

I feel like it's been forever since I've updated but in reality it's been about a week.

First things first today is......

180 days until DISNEY!!



Normally I would be telling you about all of my wonderful luck with procuring all of our desired ADR's but due to the new reservation system well we know that's going to be awhile.

This is the latest on the ADR thread.

As of December 1st, guests can call and make ADRS for dining up to May 10 arrivals.

The dining reservation system is undergoing an upgrade. You should call now for any ADRs that you need on March 21 or 22nd. Those reservations may be difficult to get. If you call December 1st for the remaining dates of your trip, you'll be fine as it's the first day anyone with your vacation dates can call.

Get your itinerary ready and mark your calendar!!

The dates have been changed a few times so be sure to call or watch for updates.
As my trip dates are May 23 - 30th this doesn't really help me BUT I am hoping that because it will be opening up for a good portion of May on December 1st that it will make my wait time on December 22nd that much less.

Marc & I have also come up with a game plan in making those coveted ADR's on December 22nd. Disney dining opens up at 7AM I believe. Normally I go to work at 8AM. I am going to be at work before 7AM and ready to dial right at 7AM. I am hoping that I will be able to use that hour before I officially start work and make all of our ADR's. I am going to use my calling card from work so I can put my phone on speakerphone after 8AM if I am still on hold and get some work done. I have been known to do this....

Now if I am on wait for an insane amount of time or there is some pressing matter at work that I must attend to then I will be notifying Marc who normally gets home around 9AM to get on the phone with Disney and make our ADR's. There will be a list of possible ADR's and backups and may the ADR force be with him if this comes to be.

I thank all of you who offered to help me with my ADR's and I still my ask for help if I get panicky before then but for right now I am feeling good with this plan. I am honestly not too worried about getting everything that we want except for Le Cellier. We have some flexibility with when we eat there as we are trying to get in on our first night so there you go.

I am going to take a moment to bow down to the ADR Gods in hopes that they will be smiling down on me on December 22nd.



And as promised here are some update pictures of the Countdown Calendar. BIL stopped by on Friday night and I guess he thought I was crazy. I wasn't here but he told Marc that I was insane, in that loving BIL way. He just doesn't get it.



Whatever could that be?


Hmmm...what is that?


Could that be Marc??


I love my countdown! Marc is fascinated with it as well, he's really getting into taking the days off. He never saw what was underneath so he's always investigating.

And as a little bonus here is my dear little Sully. He's so helpful isn't he?

I love your countdown calendar! It's so pretty and colorful and appeals to all my artistic sensibilities.

I will pray that the force is with you for your ADRs.

Your ADR plan sounds good -- I did something similar last year -- I was at work by 7am and called from my cell phone -- worked like a dream!

I love your countdown calendar -- I also love your mouse pad -- isn't that from your wedding?

Can't wait to see what is revealed as you take off the Mickey heads!

I honestly don't think that you'll have a problem getting your ADRs...good plan though. Make your Le Cellier ADR right at 7am and then tell them the rest that you want. I was unable to get an ADR for Le Cellier ALL weekend for my Feb trip but if you call right when you can, you should be fine.

Looks like a great ADR plan. I will keep my fingers crossed for you. LOVE the countdown calendar. Whatever the underlying surprise is, I like what I've seen!

Thanks. Sully likes to "help" me when I am on the computer. Half the time he lays right over my hand that is on the mouse.

I love it too. I am quite proud of myself.
I will take all the force that I can get with my ADR's.

Oh I am glad that it has worked for you in the past. I really hope it works for me.
The mouse pad is from the wedding! I love it, especially since it was free on snapfish with a coupon code.

I hope so. Le Cellier is the one I will be requesting first, no ifs ands or buts about that!
