Yeah!! I'm so glad you bought it! It's perfect for you! And there is nothing wrong with a little wardrobe inspiration to fuel our fitness efforts!

How far in advance do they usually post park hours? When does your ADR window open?

Breakfasts. Tough for me as I'm not a breakfast lover. Unless it comes w/ a mimosa.

I think if I'm not crazy that POR has beignets in the food court? If so, you must try! Although not necessarily for breakfast.

Your rationale for Akershush - the Unoffical Guide talks about their "massive chandelier" - cracks me up!!!

Like your strategy at Kona -- best of both worlds!

Love the shirt! I need to make the family walk, too, before our next trip, but with the cold weather coming all I want to do is curl up under a blanket!

Your breakfast ADRs look good -- we have eaten at all of them at one time or another and enjoyed all of them -- Kona and Crystal Palace would be our favorites of those.

The ADR's look pretty good so far. I've actually never had breakfast at any of them. I'll be curious to hear about them.

WOO HOO! Do you have another trip planned...??

You should do one, it's a lot of fun and it really keeps the Disney magic alive!

I have had the song stuck in my head since Saturday night now.

Welcome! I haven't thought about the AP yet. AP's overwhelm me.

Welcome!! I am really excited to stay at POR.

Hello Trixie!!

Me too! Though I am sad we are going to miss each other by such a short time!

Welcome. We will have fun!! If you love lists you have come to the right place.
I know I should and I'm really thinking about it this time! We'll see what happens!

I truly feel loved with the responses from everyone since starting my PTR. The DIS really has enabled me to make so many friendships with incredible people.

I made my first official May 2009 Trip Purchase.

Anyone want to take a guess?

No?

Okay. I will tell you then. I bought the Chandelier Tee Shirt from Lane Bryant.



TADA! I am very excited over this shirt. As most of you know I developed an obsession with all the awesome themed Disney Light Fixtures while on my last trip. I caught myself at Longhorn's this weekend checking out their light fixtures, musing on how neat they were. Clearly I have a problem. I am a little worried about the size of the Tee because sometimes their Tee's are cut smaller than their regular shirts. That's okay though because I have motivation to fit into it. Losing a bit of weight is one of my PreTrip Goals. If anything can help motivate me it's a Tee with a kickbutt Chandelier on it. Marc & I started walking just a few weeks before we went to Disney and I think it really helped us to not get as tired as quickly. I am hoping to do some major PreTrip walking/exercising. I am going to keep track of how many walks that I go on between now and May I think it will help keep me motivated. So if I don't post walking updates for a bit you all have my permission to kick my butt into gear.

I'm really quite anxious that Disney hasn't posted the May 2009 hours yet. I have been checking multiple times a day but so far no luck. We've decided for now not to get Park Hoppers so I want to plan which parks we will go too on which day along with our ADR's. I have a rough draft of "The Plans." But I am still not 100% satisfied. I used the May 2008 hours as a guideline.

You may have noticed the Quote said to Lumiere at the beginning of this post. Each PTR update that I do is going to have a Disney Character as the Title along with a quote from them. The Character will be related somehow to the post that I am doing, Lumiere - Chandelier Tee Shirt, see where I am going with this? I don't think I can always get the quotes to match but I will do my best. I am doing this not only because I love Characters and movie quotes but because Characters are going to be a big focus of our trip. I had a blast meeting the few characters that I did in September but I feel like I missed out on a lot of characters greetings, especially at MNSSHP. I am especially excited about the prospect of meeting Tinkerbell and the other Fairies. I watched the Tinkerbell movie last week and it's really cute. Really cute! I have never been a huge Tink fan but over the last few months I have really grown to love her. I was also impressed that Lucy Liu, America Ferrara, Kristen Chenoweth, Raven Symone and Angelica Huston all voiced the other Fairies. Very cool. I recommend that you watch it.

For now I am going to leave with you with a list of possible breakfast ADR's. I welcome any comments or opinions on them as I still have some time until I can book them. We have 21 meal credits on the Deluxe Dining Plan so we can afford to do a few of them. Ideally, I think we would like to do 3 or 4. I don't want breakfast every morning especially if it's during park time. I think that we will use some of our snack credits to bring back "breakfast" foods. School Bread is considered a breakfast of champions, right?

Breakfast ADR's.

* Crystal Palace --- This one is pretty set in stone. We LOVED getting into Magic Kingdom before the park opened. I dream about that Breakfast Lasagna and Breakfast Pizza. Yummmmm.

* Akersush Royal Banquet Hall --- I am not too interested in lunch here but the thought of a Princess Breakfast sounds pretty darn awesome to me. Plus the Unofficial Guide talks about their "massive iron chandeliers." I think this would also give me the chance to knock a few Princess character meet & greets off my list with a minimal amount of park time sacrificed. You know I wasn't too convinced but now listing my reasons makes me even more sure that this would be a good meal for us.

* O'hanas --- I sacrificed this reservation last trip for the Crystal Palace one. I am not 100% even though I would love to meet Lilo & Stitch. The food doesn't do much for me, it's more about the characters.

* Kona Cafe --- Another ADR that was sacrificed last trip. We had planned to go one morning but let's just say we were tired. I blame the way too comfy Wilderness Lodge beds. I don't want the Tonga Toast, I want the Macadamia Nut Pancakes. Of course I would convince Marc he wants the Tonga Toast so I could try it. Muhahahaha!

* Main Street Bakery --- Though not a place that needs an ADR, I would still like to eat one of their yummy looking selections. I plan to fit this in on a MK morning when we aren't doing CP.
Love the shirt it's great!

LL, I really think that next Dec. we need to do a Princess breakfast meal. Just so we can hang out with our own kind, and get into the parks early for some photo time.

I am glad you are getting the shirt. It was made for you! I love going out for breakfast, especially if it is at Disney! Main Street Bakery, two words CINNAMON ROLL. They are the best!! You can use a snack credit the night before as you leave MK and have breakfast in the room in the morning. I have been to Akerhaus (SP?) for breakfast. The character interaction is really good. If I remember correctly they had really good cheesy potatoes and sticky buns. I don't think there was a lot of variety but what I had was good. Kona breakfast looks wonderful. I would go for the pancakes as well. I don't think you can go wrong with Crystal Palace. It looks like you have some great choices. Oh, and if you need a last minute ADR, Boatwright's breakfast is great.

Much a like a cinnamon bun from the Main Street bakery so huge, you'll question your capability to really eat it all by yourself, and then do it anyway.

Great update! Good for you on the shirt. Hey, anything that gets you excited for your trip and motivates you to get healthy is a-okay in my book! Everyone needs a little motivation sometimes.

I hope you eat at Kona so I can live vicariously through you. I still haven't made it there yet. And I've debated breakfast with the princesses at Akershus as well, but have never bit the bullet. I'm DED over the fact that the massive iron chandeliers are a selling point for you. You crack me up, dearie, but in a totally good way.
I am not a huge cinnamon bun fan but I bet the Disney ones are just magical. Hehehe. I am still undecided about Kona, I have to think on it some more.
Do you really expect anything different from me? I actually some light fixture pictures at another Disney food establishment today and it clinched that I want to eat there.

Our ADR window is going to open up with the masses in December sometime I think. Which is a little frustrating but I will survive.

It's so much harder to walk in cold weather and impossible in snow. I have a great walking DVD so I need to dig that out again.

CP is the only we'll be repeating. We are not huge breakfasts eaters but I figure it will help keep us fueled.

Absolutely!! I am sure Marc would love to sleep in and not have to be subjected to more Princesses!

I think the snack credit for breakfast or even late night munching sounds great to me! I did read about the cheesy potatoes!

Oh, you are too funny.

I have never, ever in my life, met someone who decides where they want to eat based on the light fixtures.

Overall decor, ambience, FOOD, yes. Light fixtures? You have some kind of serious obsession girl.

Well in all fairness I was reading the review because I am interested in the food. But they had tons of shots of the whole restaurant and it was so beautiful as were the light fixtures.
This shouldn't surprise you. Did you read that I was admiring Longhorn's light fixtures the other day?

I forgot to answer your December question! We are going in December 2009. So we still have over a year to wait for the pretty Christmas Lights & Decorations.
