We are driving for the first time from PA with 3 little girls ages 7,almost 6, and 3 and half at the time. I have booked our ADR's (on July 10 our 180 +10 day). Here is what we have: Dinner at Crystal Palace, Dinner at Via Napoli, Breakfast at Chef Mickey's, Lunch at Sci Fi, Dinner at O'hana, Dinner at T Rex, and dinner at Akershus. Hoping to switch our CP dinner to Be Our Guest. I'll be making every effort to book that one, even if it means midnight when they open the window for it!

My parents are coming for the first 2 days. My cousin gave them DVC points to stay for 2 nights at BWV. I'm jealous but we will love AOA!! Then they are going to spend the rest of the week with my Aunt who lives in FL.

The countdown on my phone says 151 days from today

That's nothing since I've been planning this trip for 2 years.
May I ask what countdown app you are using? Hopefully android???

It looks like MHs 1, 3, 5, and 7 will be white, light blue, and dark blue like this one. The other should be the offwhite (yellowish color), dark purple, light purple. Once I'm done with this I'm thinking of making some costers to put up on Etsy. My mom has a store on it, and I would just list it with her stuff to see if anyone buys them.
Amazing, if you post anything on etsy please let me know

Thank you. I'm just making one for me. The DH and I will be going without the DSs this trip. Also, I started all over again. I found a pattern for a MH that I like better on a knitting/crochet website.

I really like the new pattern so much better. I was never totally happy with the other one, but it was the only one that I could find. Here is the new one....
Stripe side, solid MH...

Solid side, stripe MH...


Well now that I have the scarf figure out, I just need to get this trip booked. The money I was supposed to have gotten already is now not coming until early September. I hate waiting that late to book.

I made all our ADRs for our Jan 2013 trip except for paying for the CRT reservation. I haven't actually booked the trip yet until the January special offers are posted...fingers crossed for big discounts right! And I'm waiting for BoG to open up for ADRs which should hopefully be soon

Your a genius!! I didn't even think about making ADRs before I book the trip. I know what I'll be doing in the morning.

Is everyone still going with the rumor date of August 28th that we can try to make BOG reservations. I am still up in the air if we might just try QS lunch

That's the last I had heard...but I'm sure Dis, UG and other Disney places will light up when it becomes announced officially!

I'm definitely want to try one time at lunch and maybe 2 times at dinner so I can order different things. When I first read the menu, it all sounded really good!

An official menu has yet to be posted, right? I'm assuming that you are referring to the blog write-up about several menu items.

Does anyone know when we will be able to read a full menu? Not until the restaurant opens perhaps?

Hi all,

My DBf and I are going to Disney World for the first time and our first time abroad together on January 10th, staying til 19th off site.

We are so so excited!

I'm hardly booking any ADR's because we're more play it by ear people, but i did miss tusker house breakfast so i'm hoping i might be able to snatch up a cancellation on the 18th.

Am i correct in thinking that to book the wishes dessert party you can only book 2 months in advance? xx

At most. I know last year we weren't able to book the dessert party for our January trip until the 1st week in December. It's pretty random the way they release ADR's for it, not at all like the other restaurants one day at a time, 180 days out. Right now they're only booking out through Oct.

You can watch this thread and you'll be one of the first ones to know when January opens up.
