That and pin trading saves us a bunch of money!
OOOOOH! Thank you for the great stocking stuffers!!!

And if you want to try pin trading, you can always get great deals on 'lots' of pins on eBay. I've bought two different sets for the kids-it doesn't matter what pins thy are (as long as they're licensed Disney) because the kids are gonna trade them anyway.

It would probably be easier if I were a more picky eater. There are so many things that I love to eat. I had several favorite meals from our June trip. There was the dinner at Le Cellier. I had the Cheddar Cheese soup for the app, and it was as good as I read on the DIS. Then when you dipped the pretzel bread into it......OMG. I had the mushroom filet and it was the best steak I have ever eaten. I got the kids mousse to go, but loved it when I ate it later. The California Grill, but it'll be closed. I had the pork and loved it. Our first dinner was Fulton's Crab House. The red potatoes were amazing!! We had the Ultimate Crab and Lobster Experience. I just wouldn't order that again. We underestimated the yucky value of the lobster tamale. It was the first time that either of us had a whole lobster, once I saw the tamale, I really lost my appetite. I don't know if my DH would eat there again. He wasn't very happy with them, but part of it was our fault for not speaking up. First we got there a little early and there were several big groups waiting. Well these two handsome Italian looking guys walked in. They flirted a little with the women at check in and then told them that they had a party of 8 and wanted to eat dinner, but didn't have a reservation. They said, "oh we can seat you right away." Meanwhile there were at least two parties of the same size, already waiting. Instead of seating the parties already waiting, all together in the restaurant lobby, they seated these two men, that had to call the other members of their party that were at other DTD restaurants trying to find a place they could get in without a long wait. Now the part we could have spoke up about. When they seated us, they put us in a table in the bar area, that was on the outside on the room. It was a table for 4, the seats were barstool style seats, and they are crammed pretty close together. My DH wears about a 6XL t-shirt, and b/c the tables were so close together, no one could sit at the seat at the table right behind him. Then he said that he felt like he had to balance himself on the balls of his feat on part of the stool b/c our feet didn't touch the floor. By the end of the meal, he had cramps in his legs. My DH kept getting embarassed when they tried to seat of party of 4 behind him, and they would refuse b/c they couldn't use all of the seats. We both didn't think the table would work when we were seated, but didn't want to wait any longer. Basically, I love steaks, bacon, chicken, pork, bacon, veggies (I prefer red roasted potatoes over mashed potatoes).

If your on the FB group, there are a couple of websites that will help you find different pressed penny locations.

I'm sure the Brazil tour groups is the group mentality. Everyone I have ever met from Brazil has been beyond nice. So when people here would talk about running from them, I was confused. Then again, I would go in the opposite direction of any big group at WDW, no matter where they were from.
I had forgotten that there was such a thing as a location on my profile

It is beautiful here, but I see that mainly when I go to the countryside or to the beach as I live in Sao Paulo, which is a nice but giant metropolis similar in size to New York.

ADR's are made!

I called (since online wouldn't work for me Surprise!) and I had planned on making 3. Then the CM said "is there anywhere else?" And all of the sudden I found myself making other ADR's that I hadn't planned on at all!

What is wrong with me?

Saturday - Plaza for lunch
Sunday - Chef Mickey's for breakfast
Monday - Ohana's for breakfast
Tuesday - Big River Grille for dinner
Wednesday - Via Napoli for lunch

I added both the Big River Grille and Via Napoli at the last second. Big River just looks really good, plus we'll starting our stay at BWV that day. Via Napoli, we had an ADR for last year, but we canceled the day before bc my group is flaky.
I"m sure I'll make changes between now and then, but CM and Ohana's are a sure thing!

& added. Hopefully, we'll get FD or a really good room only discount. With us going without the kids, the room only might be a better discount for us this time.

We love breakfast at Chef Mickey's. Other than Biegarten, Chef Mickey's is the must do of any WDW trip.

Just booked our annual January getaway! We are staying at the Cabins at Fort Wilderness. We stayed there last january and absolutely LOVED it! Its so cozy when its so cold here in january!
We renew our passes in january-so we always stay for 5-7 days and enjoy lighter crowds and cooler weather.
I am so ready to plan!!!! and I love cooking my own food. I am bringing my crock pot this year! bring on the stew.
