Sounds like my household. They just know when it says Disney!!

That stinks about the Princess Faire, I think maybe I would schedule the Princess Dinner, my DD would love that since Ariel is her favorite. Too sweet about your DH wanting to go to Pixie Hollow, I think that makes him more of a man too!

Yeah I have alot of people that are not happy about the PFF, that is sad that they stopped it. I bet they will love the Ariel meal though...that is one that I haven't been to yet, but it sounds fun!

That really is stupid about the school days. I know that we have to be very careful with our kids' absences too. We were very happy when a new sememster started in January because we had them miss 4 days for our Disney cruise, but out of 21 days, that didn't seem so bad. Their cut off was 6, so there wasn't much lee way for sickness, etc. I think even if you change the dates you will still have a great time!

Wow, that is a great trip and I have already used it. What is funny is then she became slightly worried for daddy.

Ariel is my youngest DD's favorite as well.

Oh I'm glad you think that makes DH more of a man too!

From the pictures I've seen of PFF it looks like it was such a magical time for the children.

As far as changing the dates by a few days I haven't done anything yet because Granita is currently enjoying her vacation in Mexico. I'll wait till she gets back to see what she thinks.

Found your thread...I always get home sick when I hear someone is going to Disneyland. I had an annual pass there growing up. Now we are planning our 1st trip to WDW. Crazy! We are going to Colorado the following year...my family lives in Highlands Ranch! Enjoy California! Are you getting this nasty weather? We have freezing rain and 50 mile an hour winds here in Iowa.

Weather as per usual has been strange around here. Last week we literally had a couple days in the 70s it was great! This week has been freezing and windy at times. We did get some snow yesterday. Winds are the worst aren't they?

I just noticed I'm approaching 60 days. That is the time I can call for Priority Seating at DLR restaurants. I know it is not like WDW where all the good times will fill up immediately but all the WDW vets can relate in that it would just seem neglectful for me to not be on the phone the first day possible. Problem is I still am so unsure. I'd like to hear more about Celebration Roundup before booking that. Haven't decided on Pat-E-Cake vs. Ariel's Grotto or Goofy's Kitchen. We don't plan to go crazy w/ dining like in WDW. I know we want to try Rainforest Cafe the night we arrive in Anaheim. (We never seem to try this in WDW as it is not included in the Disney Dining Plan.) I also really would like to book Plaza Inn around 2:30 so Granita can see Alice in Wonderland play musical chairs w/ the girls. (Alice is Granita's favorite character.)

Oh, there I go. Going crazy w/ dining options when I said I wouldn't.

Jenny loves Ariel's Grotto and Goofy's Kitchen. Not sure what to compare them to, though since we have never been to WDW. My dad laughs whenever I complain about the winds. Being a CALI girl I should be use to the Santa Ana winds. Let me know what you decide about dining!!!

Hahaha!! This entire posts sounds just like me! I would absolutely be on the phone the very minute they would allow me to make those reservations!! You can always make the reservations and make changes later - Lord knows we do!!

Congrats on approaching your 60-day window! We leave in 64 days. Wish you all were going to WDW, then you could join our DISmeet at Epcot! We are having t-shirts printed up and everything!

So I'm trying to catch up since returning from our trip...... I'm confused.... The Princess Fantasy Faire was going our entire trip.....long, long lines all week. Is there rumors that it's gone or is it going to be gone???
Also, let me help you with the Pat E. Cake decision..... DON'T DO IT!!! I'll post more about it on my TR (but that won't be until I get to Day Seven.

The Ariel's Grotto Princess Breakfast was lovely & the food was fabulous, so that's an option vs a lunch or dinner. We're still huge fans of Goofy's Kitchen but definately enjoy the breakfast/lunch brunch best.

Well, no decision yet anyway.

Thanks tmkinney. Have you convinced your sister in law to take you back to WDW yet?

Wow, I can't wait to read your report on Pat E Cake. Sounds like it's wasn't a good experience for you. From what I've read about PFF it is still there for character greet but no longer has the interaction of storytelling and dancing w/ the princesses.

I do like the fact the Ariel's Grotto is not a buffet. None of us are real buffet fans.

Well, glad you're back but sometimes I think it's healthy to take a break from the disboards for a while. It can be addicting. Looking forward to your new PTR.
