We have not eaten here yet, but yet it is one of my daughter's top restaurant choices of the World...Obviously, atmosphere is high on her priority list.

I am a bit nervous about this ADR since I've heard mixed reviews. Mostly, I've heard that burgers and milkshakes are a safe choice. We are paying for this one oop.

After Sci Fi - We will hit the best attractions (with fast passes hopefully): Tower of Terror, Rock 'n' Roller Coaster, Toy Story Mania (FP - hahahahahaha- only if we hit the park in the am for the sole purpose of obtaining them.)


I also would like to do The Great Movie Ride...I think we did the gangster side; I want to ask to do the other (but I wouldn't mind the gangster side again - maybe we will ride it twice!)

Star Tours will be a must do. My girls really enjoyed it and we have to ride it a couple times before the refurb. Backlot Tours - it was recently refurbed- with rumors of it disappearing... Muppets 3D - not loved by my daughters - but certainly a favorite of my DH- bonus- it too was refurbed.

New Explorations for me on this trip - The Magic of Disney Animation, One Man's Dream, and The Writer's Stop (I am an English teacher - I can't believe I missed this before! Since I love coffee...perfect except I will have to check Deb's list (allears.net) to see if they serve real coffee or the Disney version that is less than magical!)

We might have to visit Gertie's also for ice cream treats for my ice cream lovers!
My son LOVES One Man's Dream -he is a big fan of Walt - a lot of cool memorabilia. There is also a film on Walt's life - it is worthwhile, and a good opportunity to sit down and cool off.

Animation is another great attraction. Make sure you sit through the "show" - it is really cute. Inside they have a lot of interactive things to do. In March, we did the "Drawing with a Disney Artist" for the first time. You do have to wait for that one, but it was a LOT of fun. We got to draw Pooh - one of my DD's favorites!

If you look really closely, you can see that my kids have them on in the picture in my signature.
I don't see a pic in your signature. I love the tie day shirts - I don't think I am that talented. Iron on transfers seem my speed.
To post a pic you need to upload to a site like photobucket. Once the picture is loaded, you just find the IMG code. You can copy it and put it directly in your post.

I am really looking forward to these. I can't wait to see what character we draw. Did you frame any of your drawings?

Welcome - glad you joined me!!!! I am a bit long winded sometimes... so congrats to catching up quickly. (I always read TR in one sitting.)

Glad someone is patiently waiting. Don't know that I can even come close to your fabulous food report. I promise to include some food porn though! I do promise to post pictures of the rooms though. I can give you three DVC options for when you have to decide which to call home.

I'm here and I'm joining in!

It'll probably take me a while to catch up. But here are some of my thoughts about what I've read so far.

First, your girls are adorable! I have this feeling that when I'm ready to have kids, I'll have twins. I don't know how to explain it, but it's just this gut feeling I have. I'm going to be the worst pregnant person EVER (medical stuff grosses me out...they tested my iron by pricking my finger at the doctor a few months ago and I passed out because blood=gross) so getting 2 for 1 would be great.

Secondly, I'm looking at your picture from Coronado...I didn't know that you could see Everest from the resort. That is so cool!

Alright, off to finish catching up!

Welcome Kara!

I am always excited to have a new reader! (Does that sound desperate? )

Thanks for the compliment - they aren't so adorable right now - they are arguing. Actually, they are kind of funny because one just said "Duh" to the other. (Very inappropriate and if they knew I could hear them, I'd have to step in. As it is though, I'll let them work through this one.)

I was an awful pregnant person bc I had such a hard time with food smells. I couldn't go to the supermarket. Chicken became my enemy. (It became my friend again after the girls were born.) I always wanted to be a twin. I read the Sweet Valley High books as a tween and loved them (you are probably too young, but they might still publish them.)

I noticed Everest today for the first time in my pics. (I am so observant. ) I was pretty shocked. I didn't notice it at the resort.

Welcome - glad you are here- certainly not too late. We still have sixty some days until our trips!

I will have to figure out how to display my LGMH! Maybe we will pass on the road...we are driving too. (I saw you at the 2,000 mile forum.)

A Summary of day 4 and more

Okay - I saw this picture and had to share.

It was posting on Laughingplace.com - it is under the construction wall. Poor Piglet!!!

I saw a picture of the tree moved near the Pooh ride, but I didn't spot Piglet. Maybe he is on the other side.

(As I type this, I am listening to my new free Disney downloads! One a day for 50 days! If you don't know, you have to "like" Walt Disney Records (50 days of Disney Music) on Facebook. More info: Visit: http://www.disneymusic.com)

Day 4

Early Magic Hour day at MK but I am not sure if we will make it due to our late night at HS.This will be one of those wait and see situations.

We have a late breakfast planned for 1900 Park Fare. This is DH's favorite breakfast spot. He thinks the food here is superior to Chef Mickey's and Tusker House (the only other breakfast buffets we've done.)

This is the last night at AKV, so we might take it easy and enjoy a pool this afternoon. I guess we could say this could be a non-park day. (Only day though!)

For the evening, we will head over to Epcot for our Teppan Edo Ressie and some EMH late night exploring.

Ooooh, I love the behind the scenes picture. Your plan looks great. We have never been to Tusker House. It gets a lot of good reviews. I couldn't find where the free downloads were. I might have been looking in the wrong place though.

I used my DH's to see what you should do...type in WALT DISNEY RECORDS in the search bar at the top of your page. The avatar is rainbow and says 50 days of Disney Music.

You haven't missed too many. You can download one a day, burn a cd and load them on your ipod before heading to the World. You should have around 34 free songs - give or take depending on other tasks - like packing... LOL
