And this year, we didn't do online, but when we checked in, she found us a ready room.

I do know that it helps speed up the check-in process, and it does increase your chance of having a ready room, but it never guarantees it.

I enjoy doing online check-in because it's another milestone in our trip!

You mentioned Tony's ... and I got some "heat" when I made an ADR there last year. I thought it was one of our better meals of the trip. We would go back in a heartbeat to Tony's. The food was good, the service was good ... I don't think I had anything to complain about with Tony's. So I highly recommend it!

Oh, and have some food pics for good measure!

New York Strip Steak



Braised Lamb Shank



Cheesecake



Gelato (Pistachio, I think)


YUM-O!!! That looks MARVELOUS! We are looking forward to this one, too! (Who am I kidding? We're looking forward to all of the food! )

I'm so excited!!! As of today, we're 10 days out! I can't believe it! I feel like dancing!!! (ALOT)

I'm so glad you got over the hassle of the packing!! What a trial that would be doing it on the sly I could never do it! You are SSOO good at keeping secrets!

I can't beleive it's been a week since I read your thread sorry. i've been so busy over on mine that I've been negligent at keeping up but i promise to be back again and again and again. lol.

and that's AWESOME about the fancy little phone and playing the Disney song!! I was just logging onto the DIS site today and the good life was playing on my radio!! it was SSOOOOO cool - weird coincidence that just gives you the warm fuzzies hey??? anyway - so I totally can relate to that.

Can't wait to find out about the BIG REVEAL next week - it will be the highlight of my week No pressure at all hey??

I'm barely able to...and the days at work are getting EXTREMELY long, and I can't seem to focus on one thing. LOL.

I just know that exactly one week from tonight, I'm going to be laying in bed, and Prince Charming and I are going to be staring at the ceiling. Unable to sleep. And, we have to be up no later than 3 am to get ready.

Good GRACIOUS people! I see very little sleep in my future. Between being unbelievably excited about heading to the House of Mouse, and the late games of the NCAA Tournament, I am being eluded by sleep! (Have I told you guys that I am a college basketball nut?)

On the brightside, my boys won last night, and man what a game it was!!! Prince Charming was in the bed next to me snoring, and I was up watching the game. (He doesn't particularly like basketball. He's more into football and baseball.) I'm sure it looked pretty funny, because I was trying to be all quiet so he could sleep, but whenever something good happened I would stifle my yells, and just try some quiet celebrating. That would shake the bed a bit. I guess, in hindsight, I should have gotten up and watched it in the living room, but eh...that bed was so darn comfortable! By the time it was over though, I was so worked up that I couldn't go to sleep!

At least the next one is on Sunday afternoon, so it hopefully won't interfere with my sleeping. We shall see!

I laughed reading about you celebrating quietly in bed b/c I always try to watch tv in bed while DH is sleeping too. Sometimes if he catches me before I've gone into the bedroom he'll ask if I can stay out there to watch tv tonight and while I used to hate it bc as you said the bed is just so COMFY!!! Lately I've been answering with an emphatic YES, sure thing hon b/c I can be on the laptop doing Disney research at the same time LOL

How many days is it now?????
