Yep, we made our final payment this week.

Shopping is a great way to end your last day (kind of) at Disney. My vote is definitely for a treat at Ghiradelli's. I always drool a little when I see pictures of all those yummy sundaes there.

Shopping in DtD sounds like fun! I hope you can squeeze in a visit to Ghiradelli!

Yep! We're six hours ahead of WDW. Cheers!

We often seem to end up at DTD on our last day. It's a good way to ease yourself away. But it's nice to know you'll be back soon!

Isn't making the final payment such a great feeling Sheree?! Love that!! DTD has so many neat things. WPE was good but we all liked EoS just a little bit better. Definitely get some yummy ice cream before you leave though!!

Sounds like fun!! I think you will like Beaches and Cream if you are staying to swim one more time!! Only thing is, last time we couldnt make ressies...just had to wait your turn...maybe they have changed it by now....you will get an ice cream there during the week at some point while at the pool I know....it's just impossible not to!!!!! By the time your kids get all their school done, dance finished and lined up for summer classes, it'll be time to go!! I hope you get at least a week or two between now & then to rest!!!!

Woohoo for making your final payment!
I'm really hoping Ghiradelli's works out. Problem is - it's a Sunday and will probably be crowded!

OOH, that sounds good. We were at a Harry & David store recently and they were sampling chocolate covered blueberries. SO yummy!

I'll remember that so I can toast at the appropriate time! I figure DTD helps to make the trip last because I can buy souvenirs!
I'm really happy that we get to come back for at least one day. It's looking like it will be Wednesday, especially if we want to go to MK. That way we can see the parade and fireworks again. No EMH for us and no PH, so we have to choose wisely!

I like the idea of just "winging it" at DTD. Whatever floats our boat!

You still can't make ADRs for Beaches and Cream, so we'll just pop over and see what it's like. Maybe just get some ice cream from the takeout window.


The girls' dance dress rehearsals went well - they were so cute! During Sarah's rehearsal, the competition lines were also scheduled, so we watched a few numbers. Really impressive. Sarah was thrilled! After a particularly cool tap number (11 year olds), Sarah says, "How do they DO that!". I said, they practice a lot!! She says, "I want to be on competition line!". I know they have to take summer classes to be on comp line. So I called the dance studio today to check on summer classes for Sarah. To do that, she must take a special class, as well as a ballet class this summer. Then they have try outs in August. There is a third class she "could" take. She'd need that to be on one of the two lines that is for her age. That one has some conflict with a couple softball games. She would rather do dance, but I don't like that she is willing to bail on softball after making a commitment, so we have to figure that out.
It would cost around $200 for the 6 weeks.
Paige has no interest in competition lines, but she might take just a basic ballet in the summer. She is signed up for NOTHING this summer, so I hope she does it.

I'll find out more on Thursday, our last dance class. Then Saturday and Sunday are recitals! Should be a fun weekend. I will take some pictures of the girls in costume and post next week.

I listened to an old DIS Unplugged podcast (August 2008) that had a dining review of Captain's Grill. It was HORRIBLE! The food was cold and the service really bad, including a manager! Please, someone tell me that it's better now! I'm going to send an email to the podcast to find out if maybe they had a management change since then and hope it's better!

Oh crap! I have heard it was wonderful!!Are you talking about that Kevin guy? If so, I read stuff about him before--he tends to be very hard on all the restaurants....regular people like us all give it thumbs up!.... I hope it is great because that is where we have dinner if we do the MVMCP in Nov.....I wanted to eat kinda early and we didn't want to do Tonys again...hence, all the reading i did and got a wonderful impression...even on Passporter and TGM.....

Yup, it was Kevin. The stuff he was complaining about was pretty bad. I'm hoping that since then it has improved. I've read some other reviews that were positive and the menu looks really good, so I'm going to do it any way. He does always say to go and judge for yourself too. I will certainly report back!

Honestly, I haven't really read anything bad about any of the food places at the BC/YC areas....just Kevin!!!!! Yeah..let me know how it is...and we aren't going to be getting anything exotic...just regular food...well, ds14 might try something different, but the other 2 sure won't!!

Well, we are at T - 50 days today!!!
I wish I had something exciting to mark the day with, but I don't. I was going to call Disney today to make my changes and final payment, but got distracted tonight. Dave's nephew and wife came over for a while and it got kind of late before they left. We did spend plenty of time chatting about Disney though! That was fun.
This nephew is SIL Sharon's son and they went to WDW often when he was young. His wife has been, but not in years, so she doesn't remember much. Hopefully they will get to go soon. I told them I'm happy to share my guide books and planning tips!! Maybe they'll go when I don't have a trip planned so I can live vicariously through them by helping them plan!

In other planning news, I ordered a pair of sandals for Paige on line at Payless today. A friend gave me a 20% off coupon good through today. If you have it delivered to a local store the shipping is free! Hope they fit! If so, I think we are set for shoes!

So tomorrow will have to be pay in full day! It will be 7 weeks out tomorrow!
DH is perusing the Disney secrets app on the iphone right now. Of course, half the stuff he mentions, I already knew! (I may have checked out that app before...)

I agree I'd go and judge for yourself. It's always hard taking someone else's opinion about food. If you don't have exactly the same tastes how can you know wether you'd like it? For me its the same with movie/book reviews. I need to know what other movies/books you've read to know if we have the same taste to know whether your thumbs up/thumbs down will sway me.
