Four Months of Disney Dining! Final Updates 5/18

May reviews are listed in orange!
April reviews are listed in purple!
March reviews are listed in green!
February reviews are listed in pink!

Hi, I’m Gretchen! On January 10, 2012 (exactly one month from today!)

Thanks! Reviews will officially start on January 10th. I'm staying it Old Key West the night before the program, so will probably have a meal (or two) at Downtown Disney.

It should be straightened out now, I'm not sure what happened with the links before.

Just a quick update: I have booked a lunch at Olivia's for my arrival day. My roommate and I also plan to meet up at Downtown Disney in the evening, so I'll be getting dinner and probably snacks there.

For February when Mom comes to visit, I also booked Rose & Crown for 7:45pm, hoping we can stay for IllumiNations. We will probably end up canceling our Coral Reef meal.

Gretchen! Congratulations! I have been MIA from these boards for a couple months and didn't even know you had applied for CP, and now you're going there in a couple days! I am so excited for you and am looking forward to reading about your CP experience!

A quick edit: I was reading your blog (because when it's the first week of January and no students are on campus there's NOTHING to do at work!) and you mentioned the housing process. I'm following another Trip Report from a CP cast member, and she just posted a very detailed explanation of how to select your apartment and how roommates are placed together. It's very different from the old Geneseo process for sure!

Thanks! I'm very excited-less than a week left now! Thanks for the link-now I'm a little nervous that we won't all be able to live together, but I'll hope for the best and at least we'll be going in prepared!

Sue,
I will be updating on Tuesday-from what I understand, Olivia's has free wi-fi so I might even be able to post while I'm eating! If not, I'll definitely update in the evening.

Congratulations, Gretchen!! You remind me of my DD(17). She is a Belle fan and a bookworm and aspires to participate in the CP. And I dream of being the mom who visits her in February!!

I can't wait to read all about it. Safe travels!
