You will love T-Rex cafe. It is a lot of fun. It is one of Tyler's favorite restaurants as the original and only other one is in Kansas City. Do you belong to My Points? I know that lots of people redeem their points from there to get Rainforest Cafe gift certificates and they can be used at T-Rex. I am not sure how many points you can accumulate in a month or so.

I love your Disney store shirts! I wish that had not closed the one here, but I guess I am saving money at the same time!

Your plans are looking great!

Thanks. I saw alot of people talk about T-Rex in there PTR's and thought Liam would love. You are lucky to have one by you, I just have a RFC. I had read about my points on the RFC website but didn't know they worked for T-Rex to, I'll have to look into it further. (unless My Points is not what I am thinking of)

I brought it home and started reading it.
Than this morning I checked on my order for Amazon.com
and relized that I had already ordered the book that I just bought.
Oh, well.
At least the let me return it back to the store.
Hi Corrine

I followed you over from my PTR. I am working my way through your PTR. I think that your idea of taking the children seperatly for something special is a wonderful idea. It gives all the spot light to them. I love it.

I had to comment on your post about getting wrapped up in the excitement of going back to Disney. There are times I am talking to a friend about it or DH and I just let out a squeeeeee sound. Everyone looks at me like I am crazy but I have to do it to keep from bouncing like Tigger

Okay I am going to read the rest of your report now. I just had to go ahead and comment. I am so glad to know there are others like me

Thanks for sharing your RFC pics! Looks really cool! I so wish we had one nearby.

Grats on the purchases! Really cute stuff! I liked that Mickey top you got!

And what is this "Dollar Spot" at Target I keep hearing about?

I am so glad that you made it down to my PTR, I am really enjoying writing it and hope that all my DISfriends out there are at least slightly entertained. I am definalty Disney Crazy, which is one of the reasons that I love the DIS so much. My friends and family are sick of hearing about WDW. Not to mention I am tierd of hearing the nay sayers asking me if I am sure I can afford it and others asking why I would want to go again. At least here I am surrounded by like minds.

There is a area near the front of the store (by one of the front doors), there you will find a whole bunch of diffrent stuff for a buck. There are somethings that might be a bit more (highest I have seen is $2.50) and there always seems to be some Disney Princess stuff. I have found some cute kids Disney socks there.

Oh... I've been in that area before! I don't think I've ever seen anything Disney though ... usually Sesame Street is the only licensed character there.

Well, I did get DD some Jonas socks once ... and DS some Mater socks ... but that was a couple years ago. Maybe our Dollar Spot is dumb? I didn't know it had a name though. Thanks!

Already Planning DD trip to WDW in 2013!!!

So I was catching up on some PTR's this morning when my DD started looking through my Birnbaum book and announcing what attractions she wanted to do and which she didn't. I think I have created a monster.

I have been very clear with her that our trip will not be until 2013 and add some special magic by explaining about the Fantasyland expansion to her (she is very excited.)

I couldn't help myself, I brought her with me on a short ride to BK to pick up lunch and we started talking about our trip. Here are just a few of our ideas. We are hoping to rent DVC points and stay at BLT, but that might change the closer we get if we get any great pins. We are talking about doing at least 7 days and 6 nights with maybe a free day to spend at a pool, DTD, of WP. We diffinatly want to do each of the parks but might get PHs so we can split a day between MK and Epcot. We are also planning to do DDP for our trip and are talking about all the great ADR's we are going to make. Thinking about Boma, Tusker House, Crystal Palace, and 1900. Getting hungry just thinking about it.

This is just a tast of our plans, will start an offical PTR after I am done with our TR for this trip. Hopefully this will help prevent the post Disney depression.

I love the top you bought for yourself...it's so cute and not a "typical" character shirt. Great find! Your countdown calender is great, as well. It's such a neat idea to use the paint chips. I think it's so funny that your son has such a strong dislike for the princesses...haha, such a boy! Can't wait to hear more about your daughter's trip. I guess it's never too early to plan, right? My brother jokingly asked me if we were going to go to Disneyland for my graduate school graduation in two/three years. I said "no, we can go back to Disney World to see the new Fantasyland and Animation resort". So, the wheels are in motion for another trip Fingers crossed...

I will probably let this PTR turn into a TR and the last post will be have a link to the new PTR. I think that trying to do two at one time will be just to confusing for me to keep track off. Maybe by then I will figure out how to do a table of contents.

OK, I think I am going completly mad, or I have caught ADR fever here from the boards.

When I first started planning the idea was to do one TS for Liam's birthday. Well, than I had to do the Fantasmic! Dinning package, and than I had to reservations for T-Rex so than I started to think that the amount I was spending OOP was about how much an upgrade to the DDP would be so I started thinking. . .(just think of winnie the pooh poking at his head saying Think. . .Think. . .Think. . .)

After much deliberating I think I am going to go for it. I am going to have call tomarrow morning to change my reservation, so hopefull I did the math right and have no problem with it.

But tomarrow is so far away. I know some TS's are hard to get and here I am less than 60 days away. I figured I better figure it out first, make reservations, and if it doesn't work I'll just have to cancel them right?

Well here we go:
Sun, May 29- Have light lunch at Pop (pay OOP), Boma for dinner at 5:20
Mon, May 30- Sunshine Seasons for lunch, Via Napoli for dinner at 7pm
Tues, May 31-Mama Melrose for lunch, Pizza Planet for dinner
Wed, June 1-Pecos Bill for lunch, The Crystal Palace for dinner at 6:50
Thurs, June 2- Flame Tree BBQ for lunch, T-Rex for dinner at 7pm (OOP)
Fri, June 3- 50's Prime Time Cafe for Lunch, prob Pop for dinner before ME

What do all think? Boma, Via Napoli, and Crystal Palace are what I added. I know my son doesn't want to do a character meal, but he loves Pooh and I think he will enjoy it. I am definatly going to keep this one a surprise.

Wish me luck tomarrow upgrading the DP (goodness look at the time) I mean wish me luck today.
