I am happy to announce that after being on the phone for about 20 minutes (it took a little longer because of my promo code was older) I have officially changed our dinning plan from QSDP to DDP. At first I was a bit worried (but not to much because it was only $5) that I had did the math wrong and the Plan was going to be more than I thought. It actually came out to be $5 cheaper.

I am so excited. CP here we come!!!!

I did!!!

After looking at some revues I decided to change Via Napoli to Coral Reef for lunch. We are already eating at Mama Melrose and Pizza Planet so I decided another italian resturaunte was not needed. I am also looking foward to Coral Reef's fish tanks and hoping we get some good food. Revues there seem to vary.

YAY! Glad you got everything sorted out. I'm sure your DS will come around to the character meal and enjoy Crystal Palace.
With Boma, did you plan to leave the park and then go back after...or go there first? Just wondering what your plan was...

We are planning on hanging out at the resort for awhile (swimming in the pool) and than head over to Boma. We will than head over to MK. Should be just in time to start staking out a a place for the parade. If it is to early we might take a trip on the WDWRR first.

I am loving your countdown calendar! I'm definitely going to do that. I also really liked the shirts you got the kids. Your t-shirt is really pretty and art-sy. LOVE it and the fact that it's DIS green You're lucky to have an RFC by you. The one near us closed years ago and I never got to take my daughter and I don't think my son remembers going. I loved their food! Again, that '13 trip you have with Mia is a great idea, and you are definitely in good company here on the boards with planning trips way in advance It's also great that you tied it into the Fantasyland expansion so that she feels like the trip is even more special It's nice that she's so into planning the trip with you As far as this trip, woo hoo for upgrading to DDP and getting all of those great ADRs! As soon as I read "Boma", I thought "Zebra Domes"! They look yummy and I really want to try one! Your ADRs actually made me hungry!

I also really liked the shirts you got the kids. Your t-shirt is really pretty and art-sy. LOVE it and the fact that it's DIS green I didn't even think of the color until I got it home and took the picture. I guess it was just fate.You're lucky to have an RFC by you. The one near us closed years ago and I never got to take my daughter and I don't think my son remembers going. I loved their food!I am so sorry that the RFC by you closed down. Hopefully she'll be able to go sometime at AK or DTD. I was just looking at the pics in Birnbaum book and saw pics of Maccaws. Ours used to have Maccaws but they stopped that years ago. I actually had a friend who did the shows there. Oh well if I want to see birds I'll just go to my moms. She shas over 11. Again, that '13 trip you have with Mia is a great idea, and you are definitely in good company here on the boards with planning trips way in advance It's also great that you tied it into the Fantasyland expansion so that she feels like the trip is even more special It's nice that she's so into planning the trip with you The funny thing is that I started planning the trip before I even learned about the expansion. At first when I decided to take Liam for his birthday I knew I would have to take everyone in turn. (I know twist my arm right.) So I figure 2011- Liam, 2013- Mia, 2015- Aidan, 2017- family trip, and 2019- Rylan. I had already booked the trip when I learned about SWW. And when I was researching this trip I learned about the expansion. Like I said fate. As far as this trip, woo hoo for upgrading to DDP and getting all of those great ADRs! As soon as I read "Boma", I thought "Zebra Domes"! They look yummy and I really want to try one! Your ADRs actually made me hungry!
That was one of the things I was thinking of when I booked Boma. Zebra Domes. Alright, it wasn't the main thing I was think about, but it sure didn't hurt. I am so glad to have changed to the DP. Now I don't have to wait till 2013 to try some of the resteraunts I have been hearing about.

so please bare with me.

First of all I wanted to post a picture of our Countdown Calander.

Liam helped me glue all the paint chips on and is very proud of it
We are putting Disney stickers on it so we don't have any blank spots
I actually missed a date,
But if I don't tell know one will notice
(Oops I just told.)
If any one is intrested
These mickey heads are paint chip I got for FREE at Home Depot
Got to love the price.

Second I wanted to share some more pics of some more things I bought
I know me shop
So unlike me

I bought these at the dollar spot at Target.
I know not all are Disney
But I couldn't get Mia one and not the boys
The Pens are mine
I am going to put these in there Easter baskets.

I bought these at the Disney Store for $5 each
I couldn't pass up that price.
The mickey one is for Aidan
The Tangled one is for Mia
and the Perry one is for Liam
Unfortunatly that didn't have any in Rylan's size
I am also going to put these in their Easter baskets

This last disney purchase is for me
I just love this shirt
Not to mention that it is the Dis color
It has a Mickey in the center
And it was marked down from $32 to $10

Love the purchases! I really need to get over to the Disney outlet. I ended up using my coupon for stuff for the kids for Easter.

Great idea to upgrade to the DDP, we did too for this trip. It's totally worth the money to upgrade if your going to be doing some TS restaurants. I'm sure Liam will enjoy Crystal Palace, my kids love it, even my 15 year old!

Following you over from my PTR!

Using the paint sample/Mickey head-thingys (whatever they're called!) as your countdown calendar? Genius!

PixieMama, glad you can join my crazy ride. I actually go the idea some where on the DIS to use the paint chips for the calendar. I heard people were using the alien green ones, putting there DIS name on them, and pinning it bags/backpacks/clothing in hope to do DIS meets. I went to pick a couple up and thought why not use them for a countdown calendar. Thanks for the great comment!!
