Yes... we left they day after my workday. But since we booked in March it was no biggie, I knew we were not near close to five snow days, in 10 years I have never had more than five snow days in a year.

We are going to split the drive for sure on the way down... most of the driving day 1. On the way back we might try to drive all in one.

We have never eaten at the Castle, but a friend just got back last week and she said it was their favorite meal.

LeCellier is soooo good! I can taste that pretzle bread and mushroom filet. DH has said we will not be going back until our kids are older because DD doesn't do well in soft lighting. It makes her more hyper if that is possible!

I was going to suggest O'Hana or Cape May for a non-park day. I haven't been to either, but really want to go after reading a few trip reports lately. I don't think you could go wrong with either. Although the girls would probably have fun at Whispering Canyon....

What about Wolfgang Puck's at DTD? We ate there for lunch our first trip and it remains one of our favorite meals.
I hope to do the Crystal Palace our first MK day. I think it would be a super fun way to start our day. I was shocked how well we enjoyed the castle, both the atmosphere and the food were great. Plus the princesses!

LeCellier is a bit of a scare with the kids. The girls are good eating out, so we will see what Luke is like. I figure we can let my parents go and do something else if we have to. However it is yummy and I would like to do it!

I would love to try OHana's breakfast not sure if it will fit in this trip. Cape May is a place we have gone for dinner and like, never made it to breakfast though. I would love for my parent's to see the Wilderness Lodge too, I also love Wolfgang Puck Express... so I bet I would like the restaurant. I better check out that menu and add it to the growing list!

My girls love the character meals... so we try to get a lot in! Plus buffets allow for everyone to get what they want!

We are so looking forward to returning to both!

I think your boys should allow their princess to dine with the princesses! It is just an experience to eat in the castle and the kid's dessert was super cute and yummy! As for the snow... I am sick of it, I am so glad to see pavement finally. It was crazy looking through my photobucket of how they have changed!

Kona is a distinct possiblity. My mom thought O"Hanas sounded fun, but DH really does not want to go there this trip. Tell me more about the Grand Floridian Cafe... that would be super close to MK and easy to get to! I also thought about Park Fare with the Cinderella and Gang....

Which meal are you doing at Akherus? I have done breakfast there two times. We liked it and actually saw more characters. For one credit it is great especially since the picture is included. My parents ate there with us before so I wanted to go somewhere else for the princesses, plus Hannah really loved eating in the castle.

I really want to fit OHana's breakfast in.. but I am not sure I can! I always hear great things and loved your pics! I love the skillet at Whispering Canyon and know the girls would like to visit there again... I am afraid I will want to pack my bags and stay there though!

I think all of your ADRs sound really good.
I think having three days to make the CP ADR on will help me get my time. I just want CRT on another day... no way I need the buffet and a big lunch that quickly afterwards.

The list is half the fun... I plan to have some backup ideas too!

May hours just came out, so it is looking good for the first of March for us! I hope so at any rate -- I would like those eight days to figure out everything before I call!

We did the Grand Floridian Cafe last trip---the food was WONDERFUL!!! Very pretty atmosphere---everything was just so enjoyable, and hardly crowded. I have also done the 1900 Park Fare dinner with Cindy's Gang, and that is SO MUCH FUN!!! The Stepmother and Stepsisters are hilarious!!! The food is really good there too! You can't go wrong with either one---at the GF (SO AMAZING) and right on the monorail!

Both look good.. I need to read up. I am also really interested in the Boardwalk area . Those restaurants would work if we end up at MGM or EPCOT the extra day!

Hi there Laura,, ( and Jen and Jackie)

Just found your PTR and was so excited to see you are going back again this summer! Can't wait to read all about it with Luke (soo cute by the way) Also was excited to see Jen is going back in the fall.. I am hoping to go back in 2010 for my 40th but the Twins will just be a year, and I am in the same boat as you were about being older and able to walk etc... Our rule was almost 4... so we'll see (but I have no problems I don't think leaving them at home with family) I still really want to take Emma for her 6th bday in sep for the day with the free ticket.

Anyway enjoyed catching up and looking forward to the trip! I vote for Kona Cafe or Grand Floridian (I remember Jen's report on that from her last trip) and we LOVED the food at Kona...

Annette

How are you? I hope you are feeling better. Glad you have a little time to DIS, I am still a little scared at the idea of taking him (a rough night again last night and no naps of an length today) but he has a while to get in shape. I am trying to figure out if we are getting another tooth or just still fighting off some bug. He is a cutie though... smiles all the time!

Have you thought about the Alice in Wonderland breakfast at 1900 Park Faire? We're probably going to end up at the dinner there in 2010 (get our princess fix in and only use one credit, plus I do hear that the Tremains are hysterical), but I've read some trip reports where the Mad Hatter and some of the other characters are great, too.

I envy you a bit - it's kind of too early for us to be nailing down ADRs. But, my SIL and I are going to do a LITTLE pre-planning when we're all together for our President's Day weekend getaway (which has been shortened due to snow make-up days now, but oh, well. We got hit again today, but so far just a delay again tomorrow. Did you guys get it?

Well it is snowing again in the great state of Ohio. I have never seen so much in in two weeks. It started after lunch, once I was at school and by the time my students were to be dismissed at 4 it was a white mess. There were no buses at 4, and at 4:30 I would guess I had over half my class still there. At 5 I still had three students, but they were then gathering the kids in the gym so that once the buses arrived they could quickly get them home. While it took me almost an hour longer than normal I felt lucky because the first two miles were over a half an hour... then I moved okay. We at this point have a delay tomorrow- here is hoping. Plus I have to get Emily to the Dr at 9:30 and if we have to get moving I hope Hannah has preschool, she is on a delay already too!

Hey there!!! We're getting snow here in NC too!!! We're not supposed to get much but it's nice to see.

As far as our ADR's go...I'm going to be compiling a list SOON...probably in the next few days. It's just SOOO long before we go.

Are you still on a delay or is school cancelled?

This winter has sucked so bad! I think they said in this area we have already had double the snow for the entire season!

I can't believe all the weather you all are having up there! My family is in Chicago and I think my nephew has only missed school once thus far for weather... It is super cooolllldddd here in ATL today! (for us anyway)

Hope all these weather problems don't play into your trip in making it all up!

I'm doing ok... feeling really BIG for me.... can't remember if I told you that they are both boys! Emma keeps hoping that one will turn out to be a girl...
stay warm and safe!
