So I get an e-mail from our wish coordinator and she asks me if Hayley would like to eat breakfast with the Princesses.

Well of course!!! I did request that it be at the castle (I know they have a princess breakfast somewhere in Epcot) but since her actual wish was to sleep in Cinderella's castle, we requested to have breakfast in the castle and she said she would set it up! Woo Hoo!!

So excited now! We ate lunch in the castle 2 years ago and Hayley loved it!!! We were not going to do it this time because it costs SO MUCH! But now we get to do it!!

Oh my goodness reading your story about your daughter deserving to go to WDW brought tears to my eyes! Just wish stories in general Haley and Ali both my goodness! You don't and shouldn't have to justify your reasons why Haley deserves to go to WDW! I believe you want your daughter to have the most magical and wonderful time without having to be on oxygen and other things. I think you've made a great decision and if MaW believes your daughter deserves it now then so be it! Have the best time of your life and make it special!
We have a radio station here in TX that raises money every year for 1 day for 200 families and in Nov they take off for a week it's called Kidds kids and I listen to it every morning especially when they are in WDW and hearing the families and kids talk about how wonderful WDW is I'm balling like a baby dropping off my kids at school. They don't say anything or really ask questions. I think they know those kids are sick and they just listen to what they are saying! It's amazing what kids understand at young ages. I'm just so happy for all of them there enjoying themselves at WDW!

Hi there! I subbed right in the beginning but just caught up. I had to make myself hold back on the reading until I got our TR started!

I can't believe how fast you got your dates approved and your flight times! That's great! It will be so much easier to plan those special meals and anything else your family would enjoy. Sounds like you chose a great week to go and those flight times are awesome!!!!

Just made my first ADR!!!!

So I just made my first ADR for our day of arrival !!

I made it at T-Rex in Downtown Disney for dinner on our arrival night. We will be arriving in Orlando at 9:15am so I figure we can explore GKTW during the day and possibly make it to Downtown Disney that evening. I know it may not happen as planned, but this is the first day I could make an ADR and we will not be going to any of the parks on arrival day.

Has anyone else eaten at T-Rex? I have heard it is similar to Rainforest Cafe (which my kids love) but with dinosaurs (which they also love). I also heard the food is pretty good and would welcome any reviews from anyone who has been there!!

We are finally at less that six months to go and I am SOO EXCITED!!!!

I love the Rainforest Cafe.

The only thing I have really heard re: T Rex is that it is quite loud in there.

Woo Hoo on your first ADR!

You could also go to Chef Mickey's at the Contemporary. You would get a head start on meeting the characters and even be able to watch Wishes from the 4th floor observatory (outdoor viewing spot where they pipe the music in for ya). I love eating at CM's because of the monorail overhead. Very cool! And very Disney!

Or to the Animal Kingdom Lodge (Boma is great!) and explore over there. If you wanted some other "non park" restaurant ideas.

We ate at the T-Rex last year. We loved it! more than the Rainforest. But that's our opinion. The meteor shower was nice too. All the dinos come to life. We made ADR for this year as well! For us it's s must do! Yum!

We ate at T-Rex last week, same as you are planning, on our first day there. It was great...loud, but the kids still loved it. The food was pretty good, quite a variety of things on the menu, I think.

The only thing to think about is the orientation at GKTW. They offered one at 3:00 the day we arrived, so we did that and then headed to Downtown Disney and really enjoyed the evening. I don't think they always offer a midday orientation like that though, so keep it in mind! There were several check-ins that morning/early afternoon, so they were trying to accomodate a few families at one time.
