I am just joining in... I love your story! How neat that you guys started dating through the disboards!

I love all the counter service choices at DD and MK!

Monday October 17th – EPCOT - Dinner at Le Cellier (say it with me folks LA CELL ERRRRRRRR )

We have never eaten here but it is own our list for out Oct trip. Oh, and I used to say it the same way as you until one of my coworker, who is from Quebec,[ corrected me! Talk about embarrassing!

Tuesday October 18th – DHS – Lunch at 50’s primetime and hoping that we get a waiter/waitress that is lots of fun and interacts with us

We have never Primetime. Have you ever eaten at Sci-Fi? If so, how do you think they compare? Hoping you get a fun waitress/waiter


Wednesday October 19th – We don’t have any ADRs planned this day either, we are spending our day at MK and nothing jumped out to us. We are going to try and have breakfast at the Poly at Captain Cooks

Yummy to any food that is served at the Poly!

Thursday October 20th – Our rest day…we are eating at 'Ohana for dinner
My husband loves 'Ohana. It is his only request on every trip. It seems like reservations are getting harder and harder to get.

Friday – October 21st – Lunch at Les Chefs de France (does Remy still come around and if so, does he during lunch?!?)
We ate here in Sept, but were not impressed. The food was ok, but the service was lacking. Of course, trying to dine with a party of 7 including a 2 year old and 1 year old probably didn't help! Better luck to you... I am sure you guys will enjoy it!

Saturday October 22nd – Dinner at Jiko
I would love to try Jiko but was unable to convince everyone in our group (ie my dad) to be adventurous!

Sunday October 23rd- the day we leave…also the day I am too upset to eat (ok I’m rarely too upset to eat, but it sounded more dramatic that way)

I hear ya!


Anyone have favorites that we are missing out on?? I like to hear what places people can’t miss at Disney

Personally, I like Rose and Crown, especially if you can get a patio table during Illuminations! CRT is another favorite of ours but our age demographic is a little different from yours!
Can't wait to read more!

Hi there! Sorry I'm late, I just noticed the link in your sig today. The plans look great and I agree with you about POP. It is the only value resort I've ever stayed at, but I don't see the need to try any of the others, because I know I will be very happy there. I love your idea of spending part of your rest day at the pool sampling some drinks from the bar.

Oh and about La Cellar... I know the correct pronunciation but sometimes I catch myself saying it that way too.

I am so glad I wasn't the only one walking around pronouncing it incorrectly...at least most people I talked to about it had never been to Disney, so they wouldn't know anyway

Are there certain things on the menu you guys liked the best at Le Cellier?

I haven't tried either of those...we were hoping to do Kona for breakfast, but it opens later than we hoped (we want to see rope drop at MK that day) so we are going to be eating Tonga Toast from Captain Cooks (Tim has had it, I haven't tried it)

The good thing about this trip is I can eat/drink what I want since I don't have a race this time around...but the bad part is I still have to run some, because I'll be in the middle of training for the Richmond half marathon
We ordered only pretzel bread and got a side of the white truffle sauce to dip it in which was REALLY good! We also got a bowl of the Cheddar soup and split it between three of us. It was the perfect size for us to share and the pretzel bread was good dipped in it as well! For an entree, we all ordered the filet. It was probably one of the best steaks I'd ever had. Except none of us really like mushrooms so we still got the white truffle sauce but instead of the mushroom risotta we all ordered the Cream Cheese Mashed Potatoes which were AWESOME as well! Definitely one of the best meals we had!

Thank you for joining in, we are very glad to have you

I have had Sci Fi before...I have only tried both Sci Fi and 50's at lunch time. I really did like both and we actually were debating between the two for lunch on our DHS day. We both liked the food choices a tiny bit more at 50's and were looking forward to the interaction with the server, etc. Sci Fi is a great set up, I was really impressed with the decor and the old drive in movies that they showed, it is a quieter meal in my opinion and less interaction with the server. At 50's you get picked on and treated like family (in a loving, getting picked on sort of way ) So pretty much...it was a tough decision

I bet the Rose and Crown is beautiful with a view of the water! I do want to try CRT one day...just wasn't in the budget this time around

Glad you could make it!! Trying to keep myself excited and patient waiting for October to come with the PTR!

Yeah, the other value resort themes do not really stand out to me as anything exciting, I think the only other one I would try is the movies one! I'm thinking I will do my best to embarass Tim and ask as many CMs in Canada where LA CELLAR is

I am getting hungry over here, the pretzel bread and cheese soup sound so yummy!! I know for sure that I want to try that soup no matter what, I had a small taste during Food and Wine one year...and I am excited to have it again I am so happy you mentioned that you can get something different than the mushroom risotta...I was eyeing that meal, but I am really not a mushroom fan either, now I am really excited

Yes definitely let me know if you guys do plan a trip for October!! I should just sneak you guys in my suitcase so I can get you to be my official photographer (since you don't get enough of that in your daily life ) I am really excited, I love Disney in the fall...ok I like any time of year at WDW

Life happens while waiting for my Disney wine...

We are still waiting on Disney to announce the MNSSHP dates…not sure why they announced the Christmas party dates already though

In the mean time…a little life update for everyone

Tim is moving in this weekend… if you are asking if we are insane the answer is yes! We each had our separate apartments and were living alone and neither of us wanted to take on roommates…sooo what better roommate than each other It was actually an idea proposed by both of our parents after Tim was offered a job closer to Richmond!! YAY for no more 3 hour trips each way to see each other!

Tim’s mom bought us an adorable Mickey and Minnie to put on the mantel of our fireplace



She also got us this cute little gnome (like the Travelocity gnome) after we booked our Disney trip….I have decided to take the gnome with us to WDW and take pictures of him in different areas of the resorts/parks to share with her (and you guys of course) when we get back. Our gnome is already surrounded by Disney as you can see



On a non Disney note…I am running a half marathon in Williamsburg, VA at the end of May….I am soooo not prepared I have been slacking big time lately on my training. I am meeting up with a fellow DISboard member, bounceliketigger, that I met at the Wine and Dine half marathon last year.

Tim is coming with me and we are going to try and hit Busch Gardens during the weekend up there!! Here is a picture of me at a 10k I did last at the beginning of April…this was the first of many races I made Tim come watch me at…the Williamsburg half marathon will be the second (poor guy has no clue this is just the beginning)



As soon as I stop freaking out mentally and figure out my finances, I think I will be signing up for my first full marathon, the Disney Marathon in January 2012!!! Bounceliketigger and I have been texting back and forth waiting to sign up at the sign time…but neither wants to go first

Sounds like a fun place to eat! My kiddos would probably love seeing mommy and daddy "picked on."

I was also wondering why dates have been released for MVMCP and not MNSSHP. That doesn't make much sense. I hope they release the dates, soon.

The marathon sounds cool. Tiring, but cool.

I do feel bad for Tim...he still has an hour commute each way to work now, but I have a great deal on the condo I rent now...so couldn't give that up

Very happy the MNSSHP tickets are out...I just wanted confirmation that there was a party the day we arrive and there is!!

What kid wouldn't love to see strangers make sure their parents are eating all their vegetables?!?

I am really more of a run/walker, especially with longer distances

I am very happy they announced the MNSSHP tickets this weekend, not sure why the MVMCP came first though

I am still going back and forth on the marathon...I mean during the half marathon last year at mile 11, I was thinking to myself "I wonder if I just stop if they will come carry me back to POP!" I didn't stop to find out, but I was ready to!

Congrats on moving in together! I love the Jim Shore Mickey and Minnie, I thought about asking Brandon to get me that one for our anniversary, but I asked for different ones instead!

I saw they finally released the dates of MNSSHP! I'm probably going to buy tickets to one of them soon, since I'm planning on doing 2! I'm sure they won't sell out, but I just like having them and not worrying about extra expenses closer to the trip!
