Hi. Is there room for one more? I've seen you on other TR and PTRs I follow, so thought I'd pop on over and check out yours. I'm a Michigander also AND took a 7 week old to DW. I'm going back to catch up, but want to say Congrats on the ADRS!!

Oh trust me, I was flippin' out. I was going to wake up Rob but I knew he give me the "I don't know, close the browser blah blah blah" and that would have set me off and sent a tidal wave through the house.

I'm so excited about Teppan Edo! I think we are all going to enjoy it.

Yeah, I had heard horror stories and knew that both kids would be up by then so I would be a wreck trying to concentrate and keep them both fed and entertained.

I wanted to talk with you about my ADRs a gymnastics today but our kids had other plans.

Hi Welcome!! I've seen you around as well, thanks for coming over.

We already have two things in common. We are hoping to head over to the West side this summer since we haven't been over there yet.

I'm so happy about my ADRs! Now I feel like I can get into the day to day planning stuff.

I just clicked on your TR link and I have a lot of catching up to do, but I'm already hooked.

I get everything all set-up again and get started I got:

10/18 - Sci-Fi 12:25

10/19 - Yak & Yeti 11:30

10/20 - Le Cellier 5:55

10/21 - Donald's Safari Breakfast 8:25 am

10/22 - Rose and Crown 5:35

10/23 - Teppan Edo 6:30 pm


So you see I changed our last day. If you can believe it, no 'OHana reservations were coming up. I put in 5:30 and it came back as this restaurant has nothing available. I tried a few other times and still nothing. I had The Wave as our 2nd choice, but I knew Rob didn't really want to eat there. So, I decided to go for TE. MK closes at 7 this night so we likely wouldn't have made it back to the park in time to ride anything anyway, so we'll just spend our last evening in Epcot.

I'm so excited! It feels like our trip is very close now!!
Well even with a computer switch, Congrats on getting your ADR"s!!!

I thought about you this morning... and hoped it went well. Sorry about the computer snafu!

Those look yummy and good times too!

Online ADRS is the way to go now I guess.

I know, I'm super excited about the times. I didn't get most of my original times, but I like these. The online system is nice but it stinks that you have to put in the members of your party for each reservation. I also wish they had a drop menu for all of the restaurants rather than a search feature.

WooHoo, now checked my flight this morning and see I can move it back so get there about 6 hours earlier...but there will be little sleep for me the night before...what to do what to do?

Ok, all caught up.

Darling 4th of July pictures. Your kids are such cuties.

Love that stroller. Combi's patterns are so cute.

Yea on the ADRs!! We've been to Sci Fi twice for lunch now. It made an impression on all of my kids. Ian especially loved it in June. We stuck to burgers, fries and onion rings and were very happy with the food. I know some people are bothered by the set up of not facing your dining companions, but sometimes its nice not to have to talk to your family for a little while.

MOVE IT!! It does stink though when you are tired the first day from the flight.

I'm glad you got your ADRs! Isn't it exciting to be within the 90 days!

Since we are eating at Sci-Fi on our first day I hope to not want to turn away from them...maybe I should have scheduled it later in the trip.

We can check more planning things off our list!

Rob made the flight and car rental reservations today!!

We were able to get a non-stop flight from Detroit! I'm so happy. We leave at 10 am, so we'll be in Orlando around 1pm!!

Our return flight is at 8 am though. Boo!!

He also reserved our rental car.

And last but not least I got an e-mail notice from UT that our tickets were being shipped!

It is finally starting to feel real with the flights, ADRs, and now tickets!!

Drea-I'm so happy you got what you wanted...

Your comment about asking Rob about the computer and the blah, blah, blah-made me laugh-it hit a little close to home as did how you would have reacted...

Love the photos of your children at Sesame Place-we're going next week with my niece and nephew...

You must feel pleased now that everything is falling into place...
