I will probably pop on once orf twice as I plan to take my laptop. I will try to remember to post the MNSSHP times but you may need to PM me if I forget.

No I have never been to Texas, would love to one day though. I am planning to bring some UK themed gifts for my FE friends.

WOO HOO!!!!

Ok it's time for an update!

Yesterday I managed to book dinner & brunch at Palo for our cruise! I am so happy about that after hearing so many wonderful things about it!!!! I also booked a Spa treatment for both of us.


Today after a very stressful start I have managed to book the first 10 days of my ADR's this morning!!! It was a nightmare as I got straight through this morning to be told that the system had been upgraded overnight but it wasn't working so to call back in a few hours. At which point I wanted to cry. Why does things like this always happen to me?

Anyhow after feeling sick for the next 90 mins & trying calling back two or three times (ish) to no avail. Finally I managed to get through & was able to start making them. Phew!!! We got all the way through them & at the end when she processed them & gave me all the reservation numbers there were two missing. I then spent the next 35 mins on hold whilst she tried everything she could & had help from others to secure the last two....thankfully she managed it! I am so lucky to have got everything I wanted for the first 10 days & now feel I can relax a bit as I only need to call for one per day. (Fingers crossed still)

Anyway I have booked the following so far:
Le Cellier
Narcoosee's
Yachtsmen Steakhouse
Chefs de France (lunch)
Teppan Edo
Olivias x 2
Sci Fi
Planet Hollywood

I have already booked T-Rex & Raglan Road too.

Still to book:
Ohana brekkie
Kona Brekkie & lunch
California Grill
Le Cellier

I also booked the Backstage Magic Tour aswell this morning & a few surprises along the way for Lee!

I am so excited today! I can't wait for Lee to get back from Turkey tonight so I can tell him all about it - well most of it!

Fantastic news Claire-so glad you got what you wanted .
You are going to love Ohana's-we did .We had our first skillet brought out with our eggs,bacon,sausage,pots,biscuits then when we had eaten that we asked for more sausage,bacon+eggs+it was brought out within 2mins.Emily wanted toast+jam-you will see a pattern forming of this in my trippie,and when i asked our server she brought out 6 slices of toast for her+some mini packs of jam .Juice was constantly filled+and 2nds of Mickey waffles all round-apart from Chloe who got 3rds .Character interaction was fantastic .

p.s is Lee back yet .x.
