Can't wait to see the ones you got for your anniversary!!

I didn't even think of going to the party 2 nights...hmmm why didnt I think of that ...hopefully we can hit the things we want to do most on the first night and see if we need an additional one

I am the same way, I just want to know I have the tickets and don't have to worry about it closer to or on vacation

I just discovered your PTR and I am loving it!!

I think it's great that you and Tim found each other on the DISboards; you guys look so cute together! and since you both love WDW, this trip should be fantastic for both of you!

Good luck on your upcoming run! I am hoping to do the Wine and Dine Half some day, but that's wayyyyyy far in the future.

Did you get your MNSHP tickets? If I can remember correctly, I think they went on sale the 1st of May.


Can't wait to read more about your trip plans!

Thank you Glad to have you reading along!!

I am beyond excited for this trip, especially going with someone who loves Disney as much as I do...he even knows secrets about the parks that I don't know yet

I found your TR on here and caught myself up...I am so jealous of you doing the EE challenge...that sounds like such a cool race!

We didn't get our tickets yet, probably in the next few weeks or so...I did go online to find where to purchase them as a trial run, I'm such a dork

Aladdin theme night



After reading a few different reports with Disney movie theme nights (you know who you are out there!) I decided to suggest the idea to Tim and he loved it...so we started planning our first one together...Tim chose Aladdin as the movie

We planned out the food and Tim grabbed the wine on his way home from work..I found a cute tablecloth and cups to sort of fit our theme





On the menu was Magic Carpet Chicken Quesadillas, Jasmine's Jungle Cat Wine, Sultan Salsa





We ate dinner and watched tv before starting the movie...we usually eat in the living room, but we ate like civilized people at the dining room table this time

Look at how excited I am...it was HOT in our condo, because currently our A/C is broken and the heat rises in our building but hey it fit our theme night



About half way through the movie we stopped to make our dessert for the evening







Iago's Ice Cream and Chocolate Cave of Wonders...they were mini chocolate cakes with fudge in the center, yum!!

It was so much fun doing the theme night and watching Aladdin, I haven't seen that movie in at least 5 or more years, so it was a lot of fun!

We are going to plan another one soon, thank you to other people who have done theme nights and gave me the idea

Ps - I cannot stop singing "Arabian Nights" .... even though I dont know the correct words to the song

Love the Aladdin theme night ideas. I'm getting a sudden craving for some ice cream right now!

Speaking of Aladdin, I haven't seen that movie in a while... I need to do something about that!

I love the idea of a "theme movie night with food." I may have to try that.

Lovin' your Pre TR!

You've got some great ADR's lined up! You will LOVE Jiko!!!! It is just amazing - that's all I can say about it. And we also love Le Cellier and Chefs de France! Our Chefs meals have always been for lunch, and the Remy cart always comes around.

Don't worry - on my last trip my friends always said the foreign language restaurants "americanized" too. (I have two degrees in opera, so I've had french, italian, and german pronunciation crammed into my brain more than you can possibly imagine! My teachers and coaches would DIE if I ever pronounced any word in one of the major singing languages incorrectly!)

And I just have to say what a wonderful story of how you guys met on the DIS! How amazing and awesome is that! Can't wait to read more of your PTR!

Hey, look who has a PTR going! I just finished reading through and getting caught up on your life/trip updates...

One note: Le Cellier is actually pronounced "Canada." As in, "We're eating in Canada."

You're welcome.

I found a thread on the boards and then some PTRs with different ideas for different movies and I just had to do it!

Now you have me really excited to try all these new places we are trying our best to cook at home instead of going out to dinner to save money for our trip!

See now you have no excuses to pronounce these things incorrectly!! I have tons of excuses and can play dumb!! I studied spanish in college, but only remember the basics

It has been great that we met on here I came home yesterday and told Tim about how I was having trouble explaining to my co workers why I was vacationing at WDW again this year when they think its just the same vacation over and over again...and his reply was "well ask them why they go to the beach every year, that doesn't change"
At least he understands and appreciates the madness

I had to stay true to the PTR title and incorporate wine somehow Doesn't hurt after a long day at work either!

So glad you found my PTR!

I mean who else would provide such insider knowledge?!? When I check in for the ADR I will make sure to tell them "2 for Canada please...we would like a table in Canada" Much easier than the fancy name!!

Using the proper dialect, it would be, "Table for 2 in Canada, eh?"
