Dear Connie,

Thank you for contacting the Walt Disney World Resort.

1 Quick-Service Meal
Each quick-service meal includes:

ahead! Guests may call the Walt Disney World Dining Department directly
at 407-WDW-DINE (407-939-3463) or reserve online at Disneyworld.com, by

Additional information on the various dining locations throughout the

Original Message Follows:
------------------------
I am planning a trip for May 2010 to WDW and was searching the dining
choices to start getting an idea of where I would like to book
reservations at the 180 day mark. I noticed that Yak & Yeti, Tutto
Italia, and Teppan Edo were not on the dining list...can you tell me if
they have been removed or do they still need to be added on a
revision?!? We had planned to try all three.
Thank you for any and all help regarding this matter.

It sounds like your weekend was off to a good start. I am so very sorry to hear about your friend's son. I will definitely add the family to my prayer list.

No problem! If you do--love to see pictures!!

Interesting. I hope that they add them as well. I saw on the Moms Panel, one of them mentioned the final list is not expected until December if not January because of contract negotiations.

P.S. to answer your PM question yes both were very nice and professional!
Great. Tom and Mike are brothers if you didn't know. They are both really good at what they do. I just wanted to make sure the experience was positive for you all as you have been very patient.

Thanks for the prayers!

I'm being very patient. Our ADR date is Nov. 23 that's why I panicked a bit. I'm gonna take everyone's advice and just book and hope for the best.

Connie, I really hope it works out and we can get down there for a weekend. We'd love to meet you and your family also. I'm so happy that Dayne is going again. Tell Danny thanks again for being patient.

Wouldn't be awesome to have a mini meet with all the beautiful Christmas decorations.

It is so very odd. I feel very sorry for his toddler and his wife. I'm sure the days ahead are going to be very difficult.

So here is a sampling of the cupcakes Josie and I worked on until midnight Thursday night....you can tell I was a bit tired. Josie's major contribution was matching the eyes up. The cupcakes were a big hit and that's what really matters right?


Saturday I took the girls for haircuts while Joe helped his parents clean out and pack up their shop. He rushed home to make this with the girls...



It's a little blurry but this is what it looked like at night all lit up...


Here are pics of my princesses still dressed up but after a long night of trick or treating...the black blob in the pics is our new puppy Nellie. She's a schipperke and very sweet.. Hard to photograph though.






the neighbor boy with Josie and Nellie



Our friends hung out with us until about midnight. We ordered pizza and played Van Halen guitar hero. Everyone had a big time.

Your girls look so sweet in their Halloween costumes. We went to a Fall festival at our church for a couple of hours and then went to a local pizza parlor. Sounds like I should have come over to your house. You had more fun!
