Talking Chaos PTR

Hello All! This is my second PTR

It has been edited heavily to reflect most recent events ... shall I introduce us?

Kris (Me)

Disney Planner Extraordinaire & Reservation Agent for a Major Airline


Jon (Husband)

Stitch Enthusiast & Service Advocate for a storage company



So ... when and where are we staying?





AKL ~ Oct. 29 - 30th
CBR ~ Oct. 30 - Nov. 5th

The last time we went for the food and wine and MNSSHP, I didn't make a TR, so this year, I will!

Important Planning Events/Dates

This used to be a PTR for a family trip, but that kind of fell apart. Though, me and DH are still going!

Whooh ^_^ Okay, I think I'm good ^_^

So, in a week I'm doing a presentation on my mom's birthday! It's going to be fun ... cake AND Disney :whee:

My thinking is this; 5 people x 7 nights = 30 Table Service Credits (7 per person).
My family thinks it's an awesome idea that we try and have 5 sit down meals together during the trip. So, each of us will pick ONE TS restaurant to eat at and the rest of the family will join in!
This leaves each person with 2 credits. I want to go to Cinderella's Royal Table with mine ... Jon and Bekah may join me. But I'm really hoping I can talk my parents into going to a Signature Restaurant for a romantic meal together ^_^

So far, this is all I have:
Mom = Be Our Guest Restuarant
Me = Crystal Palace Breakfast
Jon = Deciding between 3 or 4 restaurants
Dad = Wants seafood (hence the title of the ptr!)
Sister = No idea ... maybe Italian?

I'll be sure to update more around the 16th once everyone picks their restaurants and we figure out a clearer picture of our plans during the week.

Hello!

Don't forget to spring your clocks forward ^_^

So, I'm kind of diving deep into the ptr thing and disney planning because I've very recently had something very dear to me taken away. I really don't know how to cope with it and am trying to hold myself together by posting in this PTR.
I truly hope no one minds me posting in here all the time. I'm just trying to keep myself from floundering in depressing or any sort of self pity.

With that said, I would truly appreciate anyone just saying hi or helping me keep my mind focused on my task at hand :D

So, another thing I'm doing to help myself out is ... I've begun looking at the diney marathons
I am not a runner, I don't really exercise. BUT I need to get healtheir and I want to get some sort of medal/accomplishment. So, I've decided to possibly try training for a 5k run during the princess marathon

This is my goal so I'll be doing little updates here with that. Come Summer, once registration begins, I'll decide if I'm going to fully commit or not. If I do, that's when a new PTR will pop up!

Hello Everyone! (if anyone is there ...)

Work has been crazy busy! Haven't been able to work on the powerpoint today
Tomorrow I'm planning on it though. It's a pretty big order, let me tell ya!
I'm dedicating 1 slide per 1 TS restaurant. Each slide has 3 pictures of the restaurant (inside/outside/food picture), the name of the restaurant, how many credits it is, meal times (Breakfast, Lunch or Dinner), if it's a character meal and the review rating (taken from wdwinfo.com).
There are 73 restaurants.

Yeah ... busy busy!

Though, I'm really excited to find out where everyone wants to eat

Hey Kris, I am sorry it has taken me so long to come by your trip report. We are in the middle of March Break madness over here!
Love your photos of your adorable family - looks like you have a bunch of characters in your family and that you are all going to have a super time!
Looking forward to reading more!

Hello Alysa

It's okay, I didn't know you were going to stop over and I completely understand about March Madness. Very busy at work cause of all the Spring Breaking going on

Thank you! Haha yeah, my family is a bunch of characters. My dad is the biggest surprise. He doesn't let loose often, or at all, but since him and our mom got re-married, he is letting us take pictures of him like the one above

Eugh just found out that my Dad works tomorrow. I have been telling him to make sure he has tomorrow off for a MONTH. It makes me a bit upset because I've been working on this slideshow for a while and it has 91 slides, 73 of those slides are all the Table Service restaurants on the Dining Plan (including signature and show restaurants).

Just makes me upset because I'm doing my best to help my mom with her dream of us going as a family. My grammy passed away last may (on mother's day ) and my mother hasn't been quite right. I REALLY want to make my mom smile like she hasn't since before my grammy got sick.
Also, my dad can take a day off work to fly his plane, but not my mother's birthday?

I'm sure all of you know why I'm doing this now ... doing it now allows us to give us a rough draft of our plan for the parks and also allows me to do ADRs.
For 5 people? Yes, need to get this done.

Sorry to vent a bit guys but it really upsets me. The only hope I have left is that my dad try to get home by dinner instead of being gone all day/night.
