Your MK plan sounds great! I think I am going to steal it. I have our days planned out to include what parks and ADR but after that it is open. I guess I should check out touring plans.

I am so jealous that you are going to Park Fare. I love the stepsisters and wanted to book it but my daughter said no dinners with mean characters. She can't stand the stepsisters

Jealous!! My *dream* is to have a daughter and take her to the BBB. Hopefully one day! Also, yummmm 1900 Park Fare! This is one of our favorites. Especially the special desserts you can order...my goodness that mini wedding cake is the most delicious thing ever.

Alsooo.. I love Lady Gaga. Haven't stopped playing her music for over a year now. You'll have an amazing time at that show!!!!

Gracious, I miss a couple of days and get behind. Let's see what I wanted to comment on......

If I am remembering correctly, you can get the "1st visit buttons" when you check in at your resort. I know that we were able to get birthday and anniversary buttons when we checked in at the CBR. That will save you a little time at Epcot.

Speaking of Epcot, your plans sound great. As for skipping Honey I Shrunk the Audience but taking your daughter on Test Track, we did that too when our son was little. He loved Test Track but we didn't know if he'd like HISTA.

I also like your Animal Kingdom day plans. I sooooo miss Tarzan Rocks. It was great in our opinion. We could live without the Nemo show but that seems to just be us and not others that I hear from. Hey, I never said we were normal.

Cool that you're going to see Lady Gaga. I am sure you're gonna have some jealous posters here.

The Magic Kingdom is our favorite park. When our son was younger, the first place we would head to was Fantasyland.....a little kid's dream!

Awesome Jen that you are seeing Lady Gaga!! It makes me smile because my son Gabe LOVES the song Bad Romance!! He sings along... Your MK look great, if you don't get to stop at the bakery for breakfast be sure to stop in the afternoon for their HUGE homemade ice cream sandwiches...they are to die for!!!

Feel free to steal my plans! The website has many many many variations to choose from, and if you have the Unofficial Guide to WDW, you receive 50% off the annual subscription (which is only like $8 or $9 anyway.) That is hilarious that your daughter is so selective! I know a certain little girl who is also quite bossy...

Ooooo now I am even more excited to go to the BBB!

Since you're a gaga fan, I thought maybe you would appreciate the status my friend posted on facebook the day before he bought our tickets: "I want to be caught in a bad romance while talking on my telephone with the paparazzi taking pictures of my pokerface during my love game, but then I decided to just dance. I hope this left you speechless, the fame is not easy,...it can make you starstruck, but eh eh there's nothing else I can say, but show me your teeth, you monster!"

Ummm...what is normal???

gaaaagaaaaaa! He he he I'm a little giddy...

I think she is a favorite among the kids! As soon as we got in the car this morning Jilly said, "I want Bad Romance." Even better, the other day she was doing her own mash-up (for all you Glee fans out there)..."Whoa oh oh bad romance..."

I told myself I wasn't going to sit on the computer all day, but I just have to add another day's itinerary! Then, I will do my best Cinderella impersonation and start cleaning!

Day 4: May 1 (Following "MK Two-Day Touring Plan for Girls Ages 4 to 8 - Day 2" from touringplans.com)

Okay so I realize every day starts with some variation of dragging ourselves out of bed. This may or may not happen, but we can at least try!! (Right??)

So yes, we will once again drag ourselves out of bed and attempt to be on a bus to MK by 8:00 AM, giving us plenty of time to line up for rope drop. After the opening ceremonies we'll make another breakfast stop at the Main Street Bakery and then head straight to Tomorrowland for Buzz and Astro Orbiter.

Next we'll get in line for Toontown Hall of Fame before it opens at 10:00 AM with hopes of seeing both the fairies AND the princesses. Next we'll check out Mickey's House and meet the Mouse himself , ride Goofy's Barnstormer , check out Donald's Boat , and tour Minnie's House.

After visiting Toontown we'll head back to Tomorrowland to ride the TTA and see the Laugh Floor Comedy Club.

For lunch we'll experience Cosmic Ray's (or Columbia Harbour House if we don't go on Thursday). The rest of the day we'll pretty much just re-visit any attractions we really liked or ride anything we missed. Since my mom should be with us by then, DH and I can also take a spin on SM! We'll also watch the Dream Come True Parade at 3PM and stop by Aloha Isle for our first taste of Dole Whips!! You might enjoy this article about the famous snack: http://zannaland.com/disney-dole-whip-controversy/

Once we've had our fill, we can head back to POR for a little rest and then take the ferry to DTD for dinner. More than likely we will be eating at WPE for the second time! After dinner we'll do a little leisurely shopping and then take the ferry back to POR.

We might actually get a full night's rest so that we can be up for...you guessed it...another rope drop! The next day is DHS (or MGM for those of you who refuse to change the name).

Hello! Jen
I like all your plans they look great! All caught up again...your plans for Jilly sounds great and how wonderful a gift to cover the BBB

I know what you mean about the computer...I have been reading one or two threads a day trying to keep off the computer...but, today I'm trying to catch up on all. I am so far behind...I have never been this bad at dissing; so, much going on is eating into my dis time... It is an ugly rainy gray day here the kids are playing quietly for the moment so on I read.

Well, since I made it this far, I might as well post the itinerary for our last full day...I mean, our condo's not getting any dirtier while we sit here, right?

Day 5: May 2 (Following "DHS One-Day Touring Plan for Parents with Small Children" from touringplans.com)

For the last time, we'll drag ourselves up and out by 8:00 AM in the hopes of arriving to DHS 30 minutes before rope drop. After the opening ceremonies we'll make the mad rush to TSM with everyone else in the park , grab fast passes and get in the standby line!

Then we'll make a quick detour back to Sunset Boulevard and get breakfast at Starring Rolls...I have been dreaming about this cupcake for weeks...http://www.disneyfoodblog.com/2010/0...utter-cupcake/

Then we'll head over to Voyage of the Little Mermaid and possibly check out Playhouse Disney Live. If we can convince my mom to take DD4 to the show by herself, DH and I will run over to Star Tours and then meet up with them at the HISTK play area. I'm having a hard time deciding where to go for lunch, but I'm thinking we'll probably get sandwiches from Studio Catering Co. or Starring Rolls.

After lunch we'll get two FPs for ToT and two for RnR then head back to POR for an afternoon break. After we all feel refreshed, we'll head back to DHS and see B&TB and LMA. We'll also try to squeeze in the Backlot Tour and American Idol (or as DD4 calls it "canidol"). We'll probably eat dinner at Pizza Planet. DD4 can do something with my mom while DH and I ride ToT and RnR with our FPs from earlier and then we'll all meet up for Fantasmic!! This is DH's "must-do" for this trip!

After surviving the mad rush to exit Fantasmic, we'll head back to POR for our last night in the World. Day 6 will be our day to revisit our favorite attractions and spend any unused dining or snack credits. We'll try not to cry as we board the ME (around 5:00 PM) and wave goodbye to the most magical place on Earth...

It's also a gray day here. Yesterday was sunny and 60 degrees, and tonight they're saying there's a chance for snow!! Ugh! I am so ready for some FL sunshine!

sounds like a great plan and day 6 sounds like a great day to recover (I wish we were going to have a day to do that this year)...

I was following a TR earlier this year and she made a comment about the ME ride to the airport being the most depressing ride of the entire disney experience...it's funny how its the most exciting when you get there and the one you dread the most when you leave!

Ohmygoodness! I have a note in our itinerary to stop and get one of these as well! Doesn't that look like the most delicious thing ever? I can't wait!!

Love all your other plans too!

Thanks! I'm getting so excited seeing it all come together! I had to buy a binder today...my Tinkerbell folder is ripping at the seams!

Hi Kayce! I spent a lot of time reading some of your PTR (and following a lot of links in the comments)...maybe that's why I was so tired at work today! I forgot to post in my Day 5 itinerary that we'll be heading to the MK for EMH if we're not too tired and my mom doesn't mind going back to the resort with Jilly for a bit! Hope to see you guys there!

Oh and I almost forgot, you inspired me to buy some iron-on's today! I think I'm going to do the silhouette like you did, but use a flower instead of a bow for our Epcot day! And I'm sure you already know this but Bella is sooooo stinkin' cute!!!

Adorable daughter and family! I can't wait to read about your planning - and hopefully details about your trip when you return! We are thinking about POR in October...

Happy Planning!
