Anyone up for some single digit dancing?






Yesterday brought a change to our ADR's (no, I didn't snag CM yet, not feeling overly confident about that one right now!) We went out for lunch at our local chinese buffet and Daniel was attempting to use chopsticks. I was telling him that there is a place in Disney where they rig chopsticks for the kids to make them easier to use. I was then telling Patrick about it because he has seen the commercials for the teppanyaki place in Des Moines. They both said they would be willing to try it so we have cancelled Tutto Italia for Teppan Edo!! I'm excited about this change

Thanks for the warm welcome Katie! I live in Holland MI on the West side of the mitten. I grew up on the east side of the state and am familiar with Saginaw. We live about 45 minutes from Muskegon and have friends there. I am also a spartan!

The temptation to overplan is hard when we are such big fans and want the trips to be perfect! I think many of us have made that 'mini' mistake and found our overplanned trips to be a little bit of a bummer, so we live and learn!

Can't wait to hear about your 'special plans' at one of the restaurants! From one mom to another - you deserve it!!!

Yeh, dancing with ya!

I think you will like Teppan Edo - I've always heard good things. I am trying Via Napoli in August with my DS12, pizza is a sure thing for us! Have a great Disney day!

Teppan Edo is more of an 'experience' than just a meal, so I'm glad you got that.

Here's to single digits!


I was gonna go with this:

but I don't have the figure for it. We'd all be very sorry to see me in that get-up.

For single digit dancing!!

Tutto Italia is lovely but I bet the boys will have a blast at Teppan Edo! All the reports I've read talk about how much children have loved seeing the food cooked.

Also, my mum did characters in flight on our trip last spring and she loved it! She had to do it alone because I'm terrified of heights, but she said she could have stayed up there all day!

Don't tell Brook but I haven't had corn dog nuggets anywhere in WDW. For some reason, they don't feel "special" to me
See, neither cornbread or corn dogs are all that popular up in my neck of the woods so they do seem a little more special to me I guess. I seriously have to drive clear across town to the special "fresh" market to buy cornbread! And unless you buy pogos at the grocery store, you would never find them anywhere! It doesn't make sense to me since they are just so stinkin' delicious! It's a good thing I don't live in the USA or I would weigh 34824732347 lbs.!

You are correct in thinking Ben is a big fan! We hit the last day of SWW in 2009. Ben didn't do the autograph signing that you can do, because he didn't want to wait in line. (Plus he has been to 2 Celebrations...the Star Wars convention). He just enjoyed the sights and the special SWW gift shop. I think that is the store we spent the most money in.

Yay single digits!

Teppan Edo always looks really good and interesting to me. Definitely on my list of places to try someday!

I know Holland well! My brothers and I used to look longingly at that park along the highway with the little shops and rides. Of course after driving from Iowa, when we were that close, we never did stop!

After feeling so sad on our last trip that it hadn't come out as perfectly as I had planned it to be, I hope this one will be a little more laid back and allow us to follow our needs/wants. We can always come back if we miss something!

That pepperoni pizza from Via Napoli looks SO good and the little donut holes too...it's on my someday list!

Ahh, I bet you'd be a great scarf dancer MeMom!

I've been hoping to get to Teppan Edo so I'm excited the boys want to try it! If it's not their favorite food, there will be plenty more dinners to make up for it

They will definitely enjoy the entertainment value of the dinner which might be just the thing after waiting at a TS every day for a week!

Don't tell me you don't have cornbread mixes in the grocery store? Krusteaz is my favorite!! I'll send you some if you need a fix

We won't do any of the celebrity autographs, the boys really don't care about the actors but we have put a full day aside for waiting in lines for character meets! Patrick also wants to do the padawan mind challenge and Daniel really wants to battle Darth Maul at JTA. I suspect a good chunk of their gift cards will be spent on SW souvies!

Ah, good ol'Dutch Village. Well, no more childhood bad memories for you, trust me, your weren't really missing THAT much, and WDW seriously makes up for it!!!! We just had 'Tulip Time', our big festival, and I am a 'Dutch Dancer', wear the dutch costume, wooden shoes, and along with 700 other middle aged woman that danced in high school, I kick up my feet for the tourists for a week and a half every spring. It has given me an appreciation for the cast members that perform in the same parade every night with a smile on their faces!

OMG Katie! I can't believe you have another trip on the horizon, and a 15 day one at that! How great you will be able to spend it with your boys.

I haven't read thru your whole PTR yet, but I will catch up soon! Have fun counting down these last few days...how exciting!!!

LOL! My brother who always felt the same way stopped one year with his family and said the same thing, it was a bit of a letdown after all the fun we had imagied we were missing out on.

We have a town near us with a strong dutch heritage and they have a tulip festival every year. I've always meant to go but for some reason never seem to make it. I will one of these days!

Hey Trish, glad you found me!! Yep, 15 days is gonna be awesome (and hot and muggy and crowded I'm sure!)

****************

I just need to point out that today my ticker no longer reads in months or even weeks...we are down to DAYS baby!!!!

I have SO much left to do!!! But really, I don't care because I have 2 1/2 days of school to get through and in 6 days from this very moment, I should be checking into POP!

Congratulations on Single Digit Days, Katie. I'm so jealous -- we still have 113 days until our trip.

You'll get everything done that you need to get done before you know it.

Oh Katie you're a real pal! Thanks for the offer! I do usually pick up a mix when I head across the border (I keep American food stockpiles! Cherry coke, cornbread, toaster streudles, yoplait whipped yogurt and red velvet cake mix - plus a stop at Olive Garden! ) but we all know I don't have amazing cooking skills and I swear it has never come out right! Never! I don't know how I screw it up but it's always dry and crumbly....gross! I guess it's good that I can't have it all the time or it wouldn't feel like a treat anymore! Just promise you'll think of me when you eat it!

Congratulations on less than a week to go!
