Universal?

So.... Universal Studios/IoA has something about a free 2 day ticket.......?

We already have a 7 day ticket from watching the Super Bowl....if we qualify for the 2 day ticket we may have to add this to at least a little bit of our plans for Saturday May 9th. Keep you posted and let you know if we get the ticket.

To Park hop or not to park hop that is the question?

I am thinking to add Park hoppers once we get to Pop Century after our Podcast cruise.

Ok sooo the cruise will be over....I am not quite sure what we will be doing on the cruise, because I didn't want to plan too much, as we have never been on a cruise before and I am not sure what the podcast crew will be doing, sooooo..we will just be exploring and learning everything on the Wonder as we go....I can tell you that on Castaway we plan on renting the Bike/Snorkels/Innertubes....is this a good idea??

Thursday May 14th
Slowly work ourselves....or shall I say roll ourselves off the boat.
After 4 days of eating everything we have ever wanted!

We will be taking DCL transport over to Pop century, and we will check-in.

Today we get to see our son Aaron!!

I know we will miss him like crazy after being away from him for 6 days!

Aaron is coming down with Nana (Jason's mom) on May 12th. This will be their third day at Disney. I am not sure what park they will be in. But we plan on suprising Aaron sometime during the afternoon/evening. (another reason why we might get park hoppers in case he will not be at Epcot.)

Epcot is the park of choice for today as we finally got a DINNER reservation at Le Celliar!!!! We have tried so many times in the past to get a DINNER reservation here and they were always booked so we had to resort to lunch. It didn't disappoint, but we are so looking forward to dinner here.....we have an 8:20 pm ADR. We booked this ressie for 3 people, so in case we make any friends on the cruise that want to join us for dinner we most likely will be sitting at a 4 top and could accomadate.

In the week before making our ADR's I figured on booking the dining plan for the 5 days we are at Pop. I like this idea, because then I won't be looking at the menu worried about the price of the food, and knowing how our 500 dollar disney gift card is just dwindling.
This way we can use our gc for tips and just go crazy! This will be a trip of a lifetime! We won't be doing this again until Aaron is 20. Mind as well make the most of it

COOL!!!! I would LOVE to see your plans!! It would be quite amusing if some of our ADR's are overlapping..you do, do ADR's don't you

Of course I am guessing you are staying DVC..which one?
See you around!!

Hi!

I'm enjoying your PTR!

We have some things in common:

I love food and talking about food!

We both live in Illinois

I met my first husband on May 8th... you and Jason met on May 8th.

My daughter Piper just turned two and your little Aaron is almost 2.

I was at Disney in September of '07.

May 15th 2009...Jason's 34th B-day!

I don't think I have mentioned this before, but Jason and I are not big Breakfast people....so we usually just grab something small in the room like a nutrigrain bar and then head to the parks to eat the real food!

Today we will be going back to Epcot, why?....because it's flower and garden time...and it is also Jason's favorite park and....tonight is DATW (Drink Around the World) with fellow podcasters.

We will probably do whatever we didn't do the first day in Epcot.....
and repeat some...(Soarin', Turtle Talk, Nemo Ride, Spaceship Earth)

I still have yet to see the new show in Canada, and I have never watched the films in China and France. I have a mission to finally see the candy lady too in Japan! And I definitely have to see Lonnie at AA Pavilion he is the best CM! And of course watch AA.

One of our Epcot days we are also going to be trying the Kim Possible mission. Sounds like a lot of fun! I love watching Amazing Race....so I will see if I can handle it on a much smaller scale. Ha ha..well maybe not.

We will be eating at 12:00 pm at Teppen Edo. We have yet to eat here....we almost ate here when it was the old place can't remember the name...but they were remodeling it, so we got VIP seating for Illuminations. Lots of people say it is very good so I am looking forward to trying this.....PLUS I have never had Hibachi style food before, like Beinihana.


At 5:30 we will be meeting up with podcasters for the drink around the world event! The last time they did this I guess it took them 5 hours So that will be the end of Day 2 at Disney World......

i am a first time cruiser too- so i plan to take it easy at CC like you guys- just intertube and some snorkeling.

When are you arriving in Orlando?
The Doorway to Dreams thing was fun! it would be great if we could get another one planned within the next 10 weeks.

I wish I could leave my little one behind... I mean... well... that didn't sound nice. I wish I had someone to leave her with. I have no one. (my hubby and I have not had a meal alone in over 4 years). She is almost potty trained so that it a bonus.

I am not sure what day we are arriving in Orlando. Probably not until after the cruise. My moms entire family lives in Melbourne, which is 20 minutes-ish from Cocoa Beach... I have to visit with family before the cruise. We will be in Orlando after the cruise for a few days. Not sure how many yet because my hubby is starting a new job and I don't know how much time he will get off. Oy! So much more planning to do!!

Is it exciting to see your logo all over the place??

I really think this is a good idea! I really like my 1st time doing anything just really exploring and figuring things out as you go! We are going to do the bike/innertube/snorkeling ! Maybe we will see you in the water

Yes! We love going to the DTD meets! Where do you live in IL?
I wish I could leave my little one behind... I mean... well... that didn't sound nice. I wish I had someone to leave her with. I have no one. (my hubby and I have not had a meal alone in over 4 years). She is almost potty trained so that it a bonus. WOW! I could not imagaine never having a break!! That must be hard..sometimes.

I am not sure what day we are arriving in Orlando. Probably not until after the cruise. My moms entire family lives in Melbourne, which is 20 minutes-ish from Cocoa Beach...

Not sure how many yet because my hubby is starting a new job and I don't know how much time he will get off. Oy! So much more planning to do!!
So then you will be arriving day of the cruise? I hope you can be there for a few days after the cruise! Tell your hubby good luck with the new job....good to see he was able to find one during these tough times!! Congrats!

At first, it was VERY exciting to see my logo all over the place....now not so much...I have become jaded. It was pretty funny though...when we were in Disney in Sept 08 for Free Dining (gonna have to do a TR about this one...better late than never, I wanted to but got discouraged but now I think I will do it!) anyway we were on the bus over to Epcot and I was wearing one of my designs on a shirt and a young woman asked me where did I buy my shirt and I had to tell her that I didn't, and I made it and she was just I wish I could have explained more to her, but at that time she didn't seem interested.

I think it's an awesome compliment, and love seeing it in a lot of places

May 16th 2009

Today is Hollywood Studios w/ Aaron (our son) and Nana (Jason's Mom)

The hours are 8 am (EMH)- 7pm

Must Do's since Aaron will be with us:
TSMM
Playhouse Disney (we took Aaron to this when he was 18 months, but it was before he really watched all the shows. Now every morning he watches Playhouse Disney...so I think he will really LOVE this show)
Meet the characters from Pixar's Cars
Honey I Shrunk the Audience play area (we played here last time and Aaron enjoyed it)

We have an 11:30 am reservation for Sci-Fi Drive In. We ate here on our last trip with Aaron and really enjoyed it, unfortunately it was on Nana's last day on our last trip so she didn't get to go.....we are going back there for her to try it, and Jason really had a good time with Aaron here.

Maybe we will see the Lights Motor Action (have yet to see this)
and Block Party Bash (saw this last time wasn't impressed)
Don't know if there will be a cool Wall-E character interaction yet...there really wasn't last time...there was a cool place for a meet and greet with Wall-E but I never did see him

Then this evening we have an ADR at 6:20 pm for Chef Mickey's. We really enjoyed the characters the last time, although Aaron was pretty frightened by Minnie Mouse



..and the food was pretty decent...and the song "Come on a party, Celebrate Mickey Mouse!" I just hope we don't have to sit close to the Contempo Cafe...and everyone will be staring at us....well maybe they put up a wall by now! I hope!

Not sure what we will be doing after dinner...up in the air....can't plan every hour!

May 17th 2009

Today we will be going to Magic Kingdom with Aaron and Nana! What will we be doing here? AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE!! I am a little saddened that TTA will be down as we got some really cute pictures of Aaron on the TTA in September and would have liked to get more to compare how much he has grown. We will be getting his picture next to Pooh's house.

We will be eating lunch at the Colombia Harbor house so Jason can get his Disney Chicken Nuggets!!

We will take the boat over to Fort Wilderness around 5pm so we will be there for our dinner reservations at Trails End Buffet. We ate here on our last trip and LOVED IT!!! It is soooo good and such a good value!

After dinner we will go to Chip and Dales Sing-a-long like we did last time! It was a good time and hope Nana likes it!
