Yup.. that is from the med. My dh can not take it at all cause it makes him so agitated. Zoe had her last dose last night and already seems to be feeling a little more calm. The first night for her was the worst. She could not fall asleep for ANYTHING.

Yup.. doughnuts. Yummy.. ones. We always call them air doughnuts case they are so light. They literally melt in your mouth. Super sweet though and gooey. I sometimes really prefer a more cakey doughnut...but this is definitely a taste all its own.

It is far enough away for me that I don't go often.

You and me both. I want to lose some weight yet after Karin's pics... I had a craving. So... I splurged. Now if I could just stop splurging on stuff maybe I could actually shed a few pounds.

So guess what I did today??? Even though my ticker says one day till....


I made some ADR's.

It was a surprise to me that I was able to do so. However, since we are checking in on 12/10... today is 180. I didn't get up early to start, I actually was just kinda playing around and found out it would work to do some. I started out by trying the online system. Tell me it isn't only me who has troubles??

Anyway, so I used my pop confirmation number to check the availability for the first ADR I wanted to make. I got in!!! What I wanted was Ohana at 7:45pm. So I tried and I saw one for 7:10, 7:50 and 7:55. "well" I thought, "the 7:50 isn't far off. I will go with 7:50" Clicked through. Got to confirmation and... error. Tried again. Same process... error. Tried several times only to get the same error at the same point until only the 7:55 was available. The same thing kept happening. I decided I better call in case it wasn't my reservation but rather their system. Sure enough, it was only their system. However, in the time it took to get through all that, both the 7:50 and 7:55 were taken. I am happy though that I did get an ADR.

So, what did I get???

Yay for making your ADRs! That's such an exciting part of the planning process, isn't it? Sounds like you've got some great places on your list. I wonder why some of the places had no availability already? Are they that popular? Apparently so. You did a great job, Ann.

Thanks, Tina. The cm said she thought that it had to do with the CP package. Since those are not offered yet... but those are suppose to be restaurants for that... they probably just are not taking any ADR's for them right now. I hope that is what it is.

Glad you were able to get most of your ADR's and at times at or near your ideal. Cannot believe how difficult it is to get into Le Cellier or Coral Reef! Do you think they have most of the dinner slots blocked out for the CP Dinner Package?

Yup, but... the cm was guessing that was the reason.

Zoe and Zack in the Animal Kingdom at the bridge where you can see Expedition Everest. I'm not sure where the bridge is located...near the Jungle Trek perhaps.

Yay! 3 points for you... and in case you are wondering. You are most definitely in the lead

Sorry you missed the pic.

As for ADR's... thanks! I hope you do have good luck. Hopefully, by the time you book the cp will be in place. I don't know if I should book a different restaurant or just wait it out. I don't was the CP package at Coral Reef... but there is nothing for dinner. As for Le Cellier... that is the one I want. I just hate the uncertainty of it all.

Ann, great job on the ADR's. Sorry you couldn't get LeCellier or Coral Reef -- but keep trying; people cancel all the time.
