I would definitely do that with DS at WDW now ... probably not DLR though because I don't know that Park all that well ... yet!
My girls are 17 and 16, and my son is 13, he will be with his 14 year old best friend. They are going to be fine but I want them to join us for dinner. DLR is much smaller than WDW, and I have no problem letting them go alone, they are mature enough. Leaving the park for dinner is more for my mom who is 73 years old, Belen who is also 73, and Boo who is 4. We will get them settled at the hotel and them be in attack mode again.

Well I decided to join your TR too. You can follow mine before you go and I will relive Disney through you after I get back. (I will be missing it sooo) Sounds like you have a lot of fun things planned and great meals. We have booked a few dinners with one at Goofy's and one at Napa too, so I will be sure to get lots of pictures posted to make you drool just a bit longer.
We always love Napa!!!! My daughter (12) and I do this every trip as a special night out together, we have been doing this for the past 4 years now. We haven't done Goofy's in years so we are excited to go again and take our 3 year old for the first time.

Hope you have an awesome trip. We have never done WDW but we just love Disney. Although it can be busy and packed with people, the closeness to hotels and both parks just can't be beat. Do your best to get their early, take an afternoon pool break, ocean break, or a little shopping or eating and then hit the parks again for the evening. Enjoy!!!

Thanks! We are such foodies, I can't believe that I had considered not going to Napa Rose. Thankfully I came to my senses. Cannot wait to see your pictures!

I admit, I am missing WDW but really am looking forward to this trip. We are not really afternoon break people in WDW but part of that is probably the hassle of getting back to the hotel. We'll see how that goes this trip. Even though I know the Parks/Hotels are all close, I haven't completely wrapped my brain around it yet!

Just read your report so far. So excited for you! I too will be doing Goofy's Kitchen, for brunch though, not dinner. I'm sooo hoping to see a couple princesses there so I don't have to do PFF with DD. She's not into doing Ariel's Grotto but still wants to see princesses, but I'm not looking forward to the long line at PFF, followed by 10 seconds to take pics with them.

I want to see pics of that Kitchen Sink after you've done your damage to it.

I admit that I am glad I don't have to deal with the PFF with DS. I do love the characters though so we do the meals & see whoever we can see!

Will definitely post before & aftear pics of the Kitchen Sink. I have a feeling that DS will be the one to enjoy the most!

I am on west coast time. We are a few hours from lunch. I must tell you I do not think I would have the patience to do PFF, and am so glad that my girls are teenagers. Although we do have a four year old girl in our group, thankfully I think her patience isn't as good as mine is so we are probably going to miss it. Darn....

Yeah, I used to be bummed not having a little girl but no longer.

When DS was 8, I wanted to eat in the Castle at WDW so I booked a princess lunch. He told me that he would just tell the Princesses to "move on along to see the little girls" but then added "except for Jasmine 'cuz she's kinda hot". My little ladies man, even at 8! We didn't see Jasmine but I have the best pic of Aurora leaving a lipstick kiss on his very flushed cheeks!

Trust me boys are much easier than girls.... My son has always been like that too. He loves having older sisters and that they have "hot" friends.

Found your trip report. Sounds like a great trip ahead.

Look forward to the reports when you get home. Maybe more pics of lipstick kisses from princesses?

Have fun!

He informed me last night that he is going no where near the Princesses or Tink & the fairies. We'll see ....

Give it a few more years maybe? I was surprised when my DBF willingly waited in line with me for the Tink - and got his picture taken!

I changed our WOC dining package from WCT to AG. Looks like the food is mediocre at both places and I really like the jellyfish lights in AG. Plus their dessert looks better and let's face it, it really is all about the chocolate!

So our final dining reservations are:

7/24 Goofy’s Kitchen 7:00 PM

7/25 Café Orleans 12:00 PM

7/25 PCH Grill at 6:00PM

7/26 House of Blues 3:00 PM

7/27 Blue Bayou 11:30 AM

7/27 Napa Rose 8:00 PM

7/28 Storytellers Café 9:30 AM

7/28 Ralph Brennan’s Jazz Kitchen 7:00 PM

7/29 Plaza Inn 10:00 AM

7/29 Ariel's Grotto at 5:00 PM

7/30 PCH Grill 8:30 AM

7/31 Carnation Café 12:00 PM

Hoping to book a Fantasmic Dessert Package for the 30th and will probably order a WOC picnic for the 31st. Not sure if we will see the show a 2nd time but I want to give us the option. We have to eat something for dinner so why not cover all the bases!

OUr trip still seems pretty far away but we are getting there...

So my DSis called yesterday to say that even though it is waaaay far in advance, she wants to plan a family get together next Labor Day weekend (2011). She lives in Fort Lauderdale which happens to be about 3 hours from Orlando.

Soooooooooooo, we are now at 33 days til Disneyland and 433 til Walt Disney World!

I can't go all that way and not pop in to see the Mouse. Plan is to fly into Orlando the weekend before Labor Day and stay probably 4 nights (til Wednesday) then drive down to my sister's for the rest of the week.

Having even a remote plan to go to WDW next year will make it just a bit easier to leave DLR this year.
