I knew you would get everything you wanted!

Definitely a bummer about the EPCOT restaurants. I will keep watching to see when they open up. GG and CR are two very cool restaurants so I hope that you are ultimately able to get them! (PS, I didn't realize GG was part of the CP so I don't know why they couldn't have opened up that one!)

Hooray for getting all the ADRs you wanted! Can't wait to see them! I'm annoyed at the CP packages too... I'm ready to tack down my CF and CR meal times down!

Yay! Glad you got most of your ADR's!! Must be a relief.


I hope Derek has arrives safely in Orlando and makes it to the Pop. So exciting for him. It's nice that's he's already talked to some of the people he's going to be with. Probably makes the change a little easier for him. Sorry it is so hard for you, but at least you'll see him in December when you go to the second happiest place on earth (IMO)!

I was thrilled it went as easily as it did....most were right at the time we requested or 5 mins away. Hopefully we'll get to set our Epcot ressies soon!!

Definitely a relief....wasn't sure having a party of 7 would be an issue or not.

Derek just texted us to say he was in the Orlando airport. Now he's looking for the Magical Express to check in & get his ride to the Pop Century!! He's gonna do great!! I'll do ok, as long as he calls or texts me and sends pics from WDW!!

Yay that Derek arrived safely! I know the first time we used the ME we were shocked at how far the walk was! But once we found it it was super smooth and easy. And the movie on the bus is awesome for getting you right into the Disney spirit!

Are you one of those "live with your cell phone by your side" kinda people? Cuz I'm pretty sure I've got your number still and I'm stalking the Epcot ADRs as well and would be happy to text you as soon as I see/hear anything.

Awesome!!!! My son used to be in Tigard, but they (him & his fiance) are in Lake Oswego now. We're up in Portland quite often for Doernbecher appts. Where are you staying?? Let me know when you get your PTR up & running (I'll keep an eye out for it as well)

Yea!! I'm so glad you got everything booked so easily! AND, the fact you didnt have to call in...bonus!

Sounds like you all had a nice get together before Derek left. His choice of meals sounds yummy!! I wish him the best in the program and hopefully he can give you lots of great trips to make your WDW trip even more magical

It went really smoothly....I would have freaked out about the 2 Epcot ones if I hadn't been pre-warned that those restaurants are blocked at this point.

We had a fun day~~good food, family & sunshine...don't get much better than that!!

Thought I'd share a few pictures from our party for Derek. We had a beautiful day, sunny but not hot.....so we spent hours in the front yard playing wiffle ball, football & just messing around. We had a BBQ rib dinner with potato salad, corn on the cob, Hawaiian rolls & Smore's parfaits for dessert. It was a great way to spend Derek's last day at home....having all my kids together!!
