Joining in!

We are planning to eat at Coral Reef this time mainly for the atmosphere. I think you should definitely do Akershus, we had a great time. The food was pretty good, it was 1 credit, the princesses were fun and I'm pretty sure the photo was included.

You aren't too far from me either. I live west of Toledo. It's about 1 1/2-2 hours to Fort Wayne I think. We sometimes go to the zoo there for something different.

We did TS for breakfast on our last trip and it worked out great. Cortlyn eats ANYTHING and everything, so its not hard to make her happy!
My oldest eats EVERYTHING too! My son is SUPER picky. Just goes to show that a picky eater is BORN not created. WE did all the same stuff. Although he is getting better since about the time he turned 4.

HS and AK are fairly simple to me when it comes to meals in my opinion. IF the characters at Hollywood and Vine are worth it to my girls, then we will consider a breakfast there. And at AK, my husband will not even consider a day there without Tusker House. We LOVED that meal! And we had a great time in their character spot.

As for Resort Dining

1900 Park Fare. The problem here will be choosing which meal. I LOVED the breakfast and of COURSE Mary Poppins! But we could do the dinner with Cindy.

Hoop Dee Doo Okay, well, I'm putting this on here, but I read this week that HDDR is going to be closed during our trip. I was considering this for our Thanksgiving meal!

Spirit of AlohaI would love to do this, but I'm not sure Catie would be as into this.

Cape May Cafe would love to do the clambake!!

Whispering Canyon CafeI've heard this is a lot of fun. I have friends that say this is a must do every trip for them- and they go quite a bit.

Okay… I thought I quoted this too, but apparently, I didn't! Anyway, my youngest seems to be a good eater right now. She gets PISSED when she sees anyone eating and not sharing with her!

I'm sorry I missed you before!! Welcome!!

Thank you for your input! I'm really thinking that Akershus is a good option for us- IF I can convince Cortlyn that eating at the Castle isn't that big a deal…

Welcome to the party!!


I'll be back soon with an update. Sick babies and my part time job are keeping me too busy!!! Hubby leaves this weekend for Basketball Tourny, so I'll be a "single mom" for a few days.

We really enjoyed our dinner at 1900 PF a few years back. We are planning on it again for Dec. Eventually I would like to do bkfst there, but it will have to wait another trip.

Hoop Dee Doo Okay, well, I'm putting this on here, but I read this week that HDDR is going to be closed during our trip. I was considering this for our Thanksgiving meal!

Spirit of AlohaI would love to do this, but I'm not sure Catie would be as into this.

We took the kids to this when they were 5 & 6. They loved it. The kids and DH agreed we need to go back again in Dec. Parts of the show are pretty cheesy, but the traditonal dancers are good. We really enjoyed the fire twirler at the end...he was great.

Cape May Cafe would love to do the clambake!!

Trying this one in Dec too.

Whispering Canyon CafeI've heard this is a lot of fun. I have friends that say this is a must do every trip for them- and they go quite a bit.

Trying this one for dinner in Dec. Sounds super fun!!

I feel like I am so far behind! Things have been a little crazy around here, so I haven't been able to get on the Dis all that much lately! I'm still here though!

This is not a happy update…

Looks like things are not working in my favor right now. Corey missed a deadline accidentally for his graduation in May and he may not get to walk until Dec. Which would mean 3 trips in the matter of 6 weeks if we went home for Christmas. We were gone for a LONG trip last Dec and by the end Cortlyn was D.O.N.E. and it wasn't pleasant for the trip home (by myself if I may add). So, we are just putting things on hold for right now and praying that maybe we could figure something out for another time. If someone will send me some pixie dust, that would be great!

What a bummer. We are having issues here too. We had a tentative plan that looks like it won't really work now. We haven't given up on doing something this spring, but it may be different once again.
Can you do Disney in May when he was supposed to graduate instead? I know you wouldn't get AoA, but at least you could go...or even early June? when it is open. If you need to cry or just talk, you have my email. I'm a good listener.
Men have a way of screwing up the best plans. LOL!
