Since I finally got the dates for the May trip, I went ahead and made some ADRs. I've been to Disney with Mark a couple of times, so I felt pretty good about knowing what places he likes. Wanna see what I picked??

Boma
Rose & Crown
Prime Time Cafe
San Angel Inn

I texted Mark earlier to ask what his thoughts were concerning these restaurants. His answer was "Think I love it (buffet at AKL?), love it, love it, never heard of it." So I think those all count as yesses (since we have since cleared up the confusion regarding what San Angel Inn is.

Also, when he signed up for DVC, Mark gave my name as a referral, so I got a letter today letting me know. I guess I'll get a prize

I'm looking forward to Boma next trip. Never been there; Rose & Crown either. Love Prime Time! San Angel Inn - eh, I'm iffy. The first time I went there I enjoyed it and then the second time we had terrible service and the food was bland.

Ben doesn't like Boma, which is why I made sure to add it for this trip! Cause I think it's great

I've eaten at San Angel Inn once and it was very, very good. I hope this time lives up to that experience!

May is official! Mark just texted me that he booked the trip! I didn't want to keep bugging him (hellooo, free hotel- can't complain!), but I was getting just a little antsy.

Old Key West it is! And I am super happy because Ben and I stayed there for the last night of our May trip and I really wanted a little more time to check it out.

Since I've already made ADRs, it stands to reason that I already made plans for each day. Though I haven't shared these with Mark If he hates them, I have no problem changing. C'mon- this is a bonus trip, I'll be happy just to be there!

But you know what else this means? I'll be getting an Annual Pass!! And you know what having an AP means? That you end up taking extra trips... so who knows what'll happen in the spring of 2013

Welcome to my world! Feel free to jump on the bandwagon of my crazy ideas for trips and don't forget about the DVC discount for the AP!

Yay for your May trip! I'm going in May too, but I think we're going to go 4/28-5/3. I thought about going the week you are going, but I wanted to be there on our actual anniversary, which is May 1. Too bad I'll miss you by like 3 days!

Your ADR's look great, and woo hoo for an AP! Mine is such a problem, I am constantly planning trips in my head that I know will never happen...but I'm always like "well, I already have the tickets so it's practically a free trip!" Totally leaving out the fact that I still have to pay for airfare and somewhere to stay!

I followed your last TR, and just saw you have a new PTR going so I'm subbing in! We are also planning to be in WDW in October 2012 to celebrate DS's 2nd birthday. Congrats on being able to book your resort. That is always such an exciting part of the planning for me because it makes everything seem more real knowing you have reserved the place you will sleep every night.

Anyway, I look forward to following along with the rest of your plans!

I'm excited about starting to plan! I have to figure out where to eat, preferably places Ben doesn't care about missing. I also told Ben I would pretend that I didn't go on new stuff (Star Tours, specifically... I couldn't promise that I wouldn't ride them
So jealous that you have 2 trips to look forward to now! I am also staying at OKW in May (7-15), and we are also excited about the hours - although this year in May the parks were open a bit later, we were strolling down Main Street, USA at 2 am on more than one occasion.

Oh, and I'm a longtime lurker and new subscriber

The DVC AP discount is definitely a good thing I'm glad to be able to take advantage of it!

At a minimum, the two trips planned would already make the AP a better deal. I just hope I get to squeeze another trip out of it!

Awww, so close to being there at the same time

Between DVC and the AP it is easy for me to think trips are free. I conveniently forget how much we paid for our membership... and how much we spend on airfare. Not to mention food and alcohol while down there! But it still feels free!

Thanks for reading!

Maybe I'll see you around OKW! I love late night at MK. Though arrival day late EMH often sounds like a better idea in theory than reality..

haha I know what you mean!! This time, so far, DH and I have really been talking about plans together, which is different from our last trip! I basically just let him pick a couple of food places! haha I want him to love it like I do, and I figure the more he gets to plan the more he will enjoy and like it!
