You gotta roll with it

The dining plan has worked awesome for us, we have 13 snack credits left with 1 day to go
We had dinner at Narcoossee's tonight, 2 table service credits each, but so worth it
I had a Maine lobster with strawberry shortcake for dessert.
DH had filet mignon and lobster with a baked choc mousse with a caramel bourbon sauce and brandy snap.
DS had grilled chicken with veggies and a massive memo cupcake.
Seriously amazing meal.
I have read some reviews where people have said that it's not worth 2 credits, rocks in their head tell you!
Then we headed out to the landing and watched wishes, better view than in the park I think, they had the music going as well.

The young lady that showed us to our seats used to live 2 streets away from our old home, such a small world, we have mutual friends

You can go to one of the candy stores and use your snack credits on candy to take home and give as presents. We had heaps of snack credits left too so that's what we did

Yeah, pretty sure we'll be stocking up.

When we get back I'll have to rejoin the "get fit for your trip" thread,
I bought a dress at Macy's the first week we were here, fitted nicely, now it's a bit

Becpee, hope your DS digestive system is back to normal now and stays that way! We also ended up with extra snack credits at the end, we just stocked up on chips and pretzels etc to keep DS happy for the rest of the trip

Looking forward to hearing about your stay in NYC

Good to hear it was only minor hiccups (hicouts?) not major along the way-can't believe being "off" DS still rode Space Mountain with no ill effects-it makes me feel at the best of times but he is a boy! Narcoossees-sounded a divine meal. Glad you had a wonderful night.

So glad you liked narcoossee's . We loved it too ( almost a year to the day too we were there.) I think adding in the water pageant and mk fireworks just makes it even better than most.

is it wrong we only had 3 snack credits left ? ( we did enjoy those cookies , regularly.)

The fireworks definitely added a dimension for me

We've been getting the quick service meals for lunches, they pretty much tie us over until dinner

I didn't eat as much as I thought I would The heat knocked us around today

I did try a lamb chop at the aussie stand, roast pork wrapped in lettuce with kimchi at the Korean stand, then I had a massive ice cream
I wanted to try a funnel cake but DH wouldn't be in it

Well, last night was our last sleep at WDW
On the upside we fly to NYC today, a new adventure for us
I edited and bordered our photo pass pics last night, some of them came out awesome
Hoping I can use the same one at Disneyland, does anybody know if I can? It won't have expired.

Next year when we come back we'll be flying V-aust for their baggage allowance, we'll need it
Delta only allow us one bag

We have friends travelling at the moment and they are leaving NYC today. They stayed at Doubletree Times Square and have had a great time!

What have you got planned for the big apple?
