Your ADR's look great. The T-Rex restaurant looks like it would be pretty cool. I've thought about it or the Rain forest Cafe.
I am going to so love reading your report because it's helping me know what I need to be doing!
I didn't realize that the time to make ADR's is coming up so soon!!!!
I have GOT to figure our plans!!!!!!!!!!!
I watched the video you posted. I wonder how much more of the new part of MK will be open in Sept?

The attractions that were in the soft opening will "officially" open at the end of March....one side of Dumbo, Barnstormer and Fantasyland Train Station. Everything looks amazing and I can't wait to see it in person! I'm hoping that LOTS more will be open in September. I'm really keeping my fingers crossed for the Be Our Guest restaurant. I will totally change around my ADR's to eat there! It would be awesome to eat there the night we go to MNSSHP!!!

Thanks Amy! We ate at T-Rex in January 2009 and we enjoyed it. I'm happy that they added it to the dining plan this year. The dinosaurs are really cool!

Go get planning those ADR's!!! You arrive a few days after us, so you get to make your ADR's a few days after me. Here's the website that I use to calculate my ADR day and my final payment day:

http://pscalculator.net/pscalc.php

I really hope that The Little Mermaid attraction and all of the Beauty and the Beast stuff will be open in Sept. I'm sure that both sides of Dumbo will be open and I'm hoping for the Casey Jr. splash around area too.

Your kids are adorable and I have enjoyed reading your PTR. We just made our ADRs yesterday and were able to get everything that I was hoping for...hopefully you will have the same luck too!!!

We're also hoping that more will be open when we go, but we'll be so excited to see what ever new things are open at the time! We'd change one of our ADRs to try out Be Our Guest, too! I'm very interested to see how they are going to do the logistics of a QS by day/ TS by night restaurant. It's an awesome time to be planning a trip to the World!!!!

Nice ADR plan!
I am excited that things are finally starting to open in FL. It looked so sad in Feb! I am sooo hoping the B&TB area is ready for the end of Sept!

Aw, thank you so much! That is great you were able to get all of your ADR's. I'm hoping that things will be just as easy for me as they were for our last trip. We pick "off" times to eat, so it's usually very smooth booking ADR's.

I just can't wait to see all the new stuff. On our last trip, we rode Dumbo to take pics over the wall!! All that was there were big open pits and mounds of dirt. I'm glad we got a last look at Toontown though. So many childhood memories.

You're making me feel old, Meghan! My childhood memories are from before Toontown...or its predecessors...were there! I think the track for the Speedway used to be longer, and there was nothing else back there.

Looking good Meghan! I just realized that I'm 7 months out for our fall trip, so I should start thinking about ADRs. We won't have too many, no DDP for us this time. Sarah is an "adult" and we want to eat through the Food and Wine Festival.

I'm looking forward to some of the new FL stuff being open too. You'll have to tell me what you see when you go!

I still say try MNSSHP (we're going to) even with the baby. Hopefully he will be able to sleep in the stroller so you can still stay there later and enjoy. My kids, were very good at falling asleep in strollers or cars, so going places was easy.

So happy that you got Free dining again!

Hahaha...sorry! I do remember times with NO Toontown too. Yes, the Speedway used to be longer and there was nothing back there. I don't remember when Toontown opened, but it had a few different names before that. It was a temporary thing for Mickey's birthday, then it was Mickey's Starland or something like that.

I forgot you were going this fall! You better get working on those ADR's! I don't know what we'll do once Madison turns 10. She definately does not eat adult sized portions, but free dining would still be ok. I'm down with free food anytime!

I can't wait to see what's open in Sept! I am definately keeping up to date with all of the construction.

We are going to do MNSSHP and we'll just go with the flow. It's such a fun party and I can't wait to do it again!

Free dining rocks!

Funny, I just read through this morning to make sure I hadn't missed anything!

Congrats on getting all your ADR's! They look great!

And, I see no reason why Mama shouldn't get to take a nap while baby does...
