~We seldom report of having eaten too little~ 06/22 New Pre-Trip Posted!

We seldom report of having eaten too little...

Now there is an interesting thought (provided by Thomas Jefferson) and one that is very appropriate in this thread How often have you read a dining review where someone opens with "Oh my god we were simply STARVING our whole week at Walt Disney World!"? That being said...

Welcome to the March Edition of ~We seldom report of having eaten too little~!!

It will be followed with editions for each of my upcoming trips:

September/October 2010
December 2010/January 2011

For the previous edition of ~We seldom report of having eaten too little~ please click here.


LIVE BLOG

For those interested, I was inspired by lurkyloo's live blog from her iPhone! Given that I have an iPhone and I adore doing live reports......

I give you:

Tinkerbelle_325 does WDW live!

I have used this blog for my last few trips, but sparingly as international 3G roaming is pricey!! Luckily, I've found a really affordable US Travel Pack from my cell phone service provider so you can expect lots of updates! I will plan post several updates live from the parks each day. I adore Lou Mongello's "Where in the World?" game too. Some posts will be food, some will be crowds and others will be "where in the world?". I will still update this DIS dining review each night too


TABLE OF CONTENTS
ADRs & Plans
Vintage Food Pics

CAST OF CHARACTERS

I'm Tink, I'm 24 and I have done a few Dining Reports in the past, most notably this past August & October. I also seem to be somewhat famous for *this* picture



At which most people go and then when they discover this is NOT Yoshi's Deluxe Platter but our insane first experience with California Grill Sushi that set us back $100 LOL. It was soooo worth it but we've never ordered that much since. Typically we stick to 2 or 3 rolls now.

My DIS-inspirations are MickeyNicki & oybolshoi. Their reports are fun, filled with pictures and great commentary


TRIP BACKGROUND
March 23rd - 31st at Disney's Coronado Springs Resort. This trip is in celebration of my 25th birthday on March 25th!

CAST

Tink (Me): I'm 24 (will turn 25 during the trip) It will be my 36th trip to WDW and my 2nd time at WDW for my birthday, the last time being my 21st.
Favorite Park: Epcot
Favorite Rides:
MK = Haunted Mansion & Splash Mountain
EP = Soarin
DHS = Tower of Terror & Toy Story Mania
AK = Expedition Everest & Kilimanjaro Safaris
Favorite Restaurants:
TS = California Grill, Jiko, Kona Cafe & Tokyo Dining
CS = Flame Tree BBQ & Wolfgang Puck Express
Favorite Snack: Make Your Own from Goofy's & Dole Whip


DMom: Age withheld at penalty of death It will be her 37th trip to WDW. She is punctual and easy going at the same time (She had to learn to be with my DDad and I who are both well....stubborn and perpetually late)
Favorite Park: Epcot
Favorite Rides: Soarin & Impressions de France
Favorite Restaurants: California Grill, Jiko, Kona Cafe, Tokyo Dining
Favorite Snack: Popcorn


DDad: Age withheld as well. It will be his 37th trip to WDW. He is as much a Disney freak as me but hides it better. His favorite part of the trip is the food and spending time at World Showcase. As mentioned above...He is stubborn and perpetually late (like me).

I'm so excited about my 2nd visit to V&A's! I'll be interested to see what new courses there are and if I will be able to decide between the pork, or the kobe upgrade...decisions decisions

Hi! You can count me in -- we're going to be at CSR at the same time. I love reading about all the places it would be insane to take my 8-year-old boy. (He's a great kid, but 2+ hour meals are just not in the cards.)

Happy birthday, and have a wonderful trip!
