One step closer!!! I got Mike's thru Disney Travel when I made our PPH ressie.....now I'm debating whether to renew my AP before the trip or wait & renew there.....it's good thru March 7. I'm afraid if I go online & order it....the new card won't show up in time.....that would be my luck!

You're staying at the HoJo right? I've never had an ET book......schools used to fundraise with books similiar & I never used the stuff in them.....I always forget about them...lol

Yea on the name tag & LGMH!!!!!

We are hoping to go back the first week of December so I should be getting our AP's but I'm not...crazy I know. Last time we got AP's though they went to waste and we never went back.

Yep, we're staying at HOJO's We use the book so much that it pretty much pays for itself in a few months.

I worked on my LGMH. It looks awful. I think I'll stick with the generic one.

My countdown is officially under 3 weeks and I'm so happy. It's not a minute too soon.

It won't be long before it says 1 week and so many days!

I am just praying for good weather while we're down there. I'm having some serious Spring Fever!

I just looks funny. I laminated it then cut around it and it just doesn't look right. I added the "bling" and then put it in my lanyard. I'll have to take a picture of it. I'm hoping to get my nametag for the Diva trip and may just use that.

So my Dad doesn't have much preference on planning with this trip. Back when I was a kid we just went, there wasn't this month to year long planning that took place before. So that being said, he doesn't care where we eat what days we do what, etc etc. Just call me Julie the cruise director calling the shots.

So to organize my thoughts, here's what I have so far.

Our flight arrives in Long Beach around 10am. We'll probably just take a taxi to HOJO's. Hoping we just get the $45 flat rate.

I doubt our room will be ready, athough I'm hopeful. If not we'll just have them keep our luggage and head straight to the park. I'm sure by this time we'll be ready for lunch so who knows where we'll end up. Maybe Rancho del Zocalo. It's always quick. We'll be arriving around the busiest time of day so whatever is quick and easy. Sunday night we're also hoping to catch the fireworks. I always make that a must do early on in the trip, again since they get cancelled so easy.

Monday, open day..nothing planned besides enjoying the parks. Maybe catch WOC?

Tuesday we have PS at Carnation Cafe for lunch at 11:50. We'll probably also make this our EE day.

Wednesday, again no plans or reservations set yet but I'm thinking about suprising dad with Blue Bayou. He has always wanted to eat there but wasn't impressed when I showed him the menu. Can't say I blame him. The MC is ok but when I had the chicken it was tasteless and dry. I miss going for the cookie boat.

Thursday we have lunch reservations at Cafe Orleans. One of my favorite places.

Friday is our last day and thank goodness it's a late night!!! Hoping to try the BBQ behind BTMRR. mmm Mmmmm

So that's about it, just counting down the days, I am so ready for this vacation!

we went on our trip (we had surf & turf and ribs) and our food was good and i wouldn't have missed it for the world. You can see a full review on my TR soon as tomorrrow I am starting the day that included Blue Bayou.

They just don't have many choices. I miss the famous cookie boat. I guess we could all go and have a piece of chocolate cake?

I wish they offered more choices on their menu. It's not like it would scare people away or anything. The way they have it is just so unbelievably expensive and to me the food just wasn't great.

That was my thought. I mean it was okay but not great, and although I love sitting in there I figured I would rather just have the WoC dinner at Wine Country Trattoria.

Oh yes, I love WCT. We had that our last trip for the first time and it was so delicous. I'll need to look at the menu again and see if there's anything my Dad would like. He's not into "foo foo" stuff. I can guarantee his favorite meal will probably be the BBQ behind BTMRR or Pilots in DCA. LOL WCT just makes my mouth melt lol
