OMG it's so funny that you admitted to using your old mugs!! If this were not a dining review thread you would get hammered from all the Disboard mug police people . Good for you though - I will be reusing our mugs from 2009 when we go next year if they are still the same!

It is silly to not re-use! I don't understand what the big deal is if they are the same mugs. Now there were still some people at Pop Century using mugs from when they had mugs that had the resort name on them. I would not do that but I don't want to buy another mug if they are the exact same. I am glad you understand!

Enjoying your reviews so far! We felt the same way on our last trip to Crystal Palace. We loved it the first time but were very disappointed the last time we went.

SUGAR COOKIEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Now I have a reason to revisit Mickey's Not So Scary Christmas Party. That looks so much better than the ones I've partaken of in Christmas Parties past.

I'm enjoying your review - please continue!

I have been wondering though - unless I misunderstood there are 2 of you, why are you objecting to being seated at a two top?

Sugar cookie looks fabulous - I'm glad to see Disney went back to fresh cookies....the prepackaged ones were blech!

Really enjoying your reviews-- unfortunately, about the two-tops, when there's only two of you, it really just makes sense for Disney to seat you there! Just a way to get the people in and out as quickly as possibly!

No they don't. I think they come with the Quick Service Dining Plan. They are about $13 per mug I think

I didn't even know they used to use pre packaged. Glad I got a fresh one.

I guess the only real problem for 2 tops is for the buffets. We never had enough room at our table. And Le Cellier and GFC it felt like we were just thrown in there and were almost on top of another table. I don't mind 2 tops I just wished there was a little bit room on the table. Cape May and Crystal Palace we were in a good spot just still not enough room. The good thing is for 2 tops I think you get in faster if you only have two because a majority of people come with more than 2. We always checked in before our reso and were always sat right on time or before.

Great review so far!!!! I know this is silly - but my CS goal is to only get chicken nuggets once per trip and no burgers!

I'm picky like your DH. I just discovered Sunshine Seasons and loved it!!!! I also LOVE OHANA's. Chris always says the peel and eat shrimp are worth the effort, but I never eat them out of sheer laziness!!! I'm loving your DR so far!

We always contemplate Crystal Palce but never go, maybe when we have kids. The buffets just never impress me.

And I know what you mean about the two top. You are either sitting on top of someone else... and depending on where you eat there is not enough room for your plates.

Photopass Update!


Don't know if this is protocall but I received my PhotoPass CD in the mail today and I wanted to share some pictures of the days that already happened.
Ohana Day (Magic Kingdom and Epcot)




Crystal Palace Day (Magic Kingdom with MVMCP)



By the way I just booked my next trip for June. We are going for my sister's graduation. Can't wait to do a dining trip. Except my sister is picking out the restaurants because it is to celebrate her graduation and she is picking yucky restaurants out...

This is a non dining post but I promise I will update tonight with a dining post. Minnesota got 15 inches of snow today so I have been baking all day and uploading pictures to my computer.

I can honestly say I have never had Disney chicken nuggets. I don't think my boyfriend has either but he likes chicken nuggets. He gets like grilled chicken sandwhich a lot or rotisserie chicken. I think this trip he ventured out a little bit. Yes, wait until you have kids for Crystal Palace. I didn't really care for the characters but I thought I really liked the meal but it wasn't that good this time.

You should not feel bad about the pictures. I am quite sure that by now the restaurant staff and, probably the diners are used to the picture taking. You are doing a great job. Keep going.
