We're flying from London so we are staying at Le Sofitel which is next to the airport terminal :-)

Haha no worries! I love that so many of us seem to be planning/arranging the same things at the same time. I don't know how you've managed to keep your trip a secret! The guys I work with are fed with hearing about it! I think I'm scaring my partner though with all the planning!

My MIL is not the happiest camper that she isn't coming with us, but come on... we're allowed to take family vacations without you!! This will also be a trip to celebrate my 30th birthday (which is in Feb.). My husband asked me if we're ever going to go on another family vacation that doesn't involve Disney, to which I replied, "Not likely!". Ha ha! I was deprived as a child and my first trip wasn't until I was 29! My children will most definitely grow up with Disney!

That would be wonderful if you could add our ADR's! And how do I find the facebook group or can someone add me? Thanks a million!

We stayed at AoA in the LM rooms in October and fell in love with them. Decided to book there again, but then the room discounts came out! Since the standard rooms didn't qualify at AoA, we decided to change up our reservations and stay in a Royal Guest Room at POR instead! Can't wait!

Wanted to change up dining reservations this time so we're doing everything different than last trip, except Chef Mickey's (we loved it!). Did San Angel Inn (Epcot), CRT, Mama Melrose, Chef Mickey's, Crystal Palace and Tusker House last trip. Reservations for this trip are... Dinner: The Plaza Restaurant, Dinner: Be Our Guest, Dinner: Akershus, Lunch: Via Napoli (Epcot), Dinner: Chef Mickey's, Dinner: 1900 Park Fare and Breakfast: Hollywood & Vine.

Absolutely CAN'T WAIT!! April 16th can't come soon enough! Especially since I can't talk about it with my DD's (5 and almost 2) because we're surprising them with this trip!!
We will also be at POR the same time ( we are 15th-25th), and we also have a DD(5)!! ( we actually have 2 other kids too, but they are older) We have done the trips with parents too, actually just this last one my parents went. We also are looking forward to a trip without anyone else this time.

We watched Frankenweenie yesterday. Last week was Rapunzel(dd favorite princess and the character she will dress as at BBB). My family had seen Rapunzel several times, but I wanted to wait until I got it in 3D.

So last night I said something about Expedition Everest and ODS (9.5) says [deep breath...... I don't know if I can repeat this without tearing up.......]:

"Disney, Disney, Disney! That's all you talk about!" *GASP!*

I know....... like a slap in the face, right? I gave him "the look" as if he had just uttered the most vile words possible, and I calmly said "fine, since you hate Disney so much I will never talk about it again with you." He then proceeded to say he didn't mean it and he DOES want to talk about Disney. he brought it up numerous times last night and was like "Mommy, I DO like Disney, I do, I swear!!" I just ignored him, lol.

So, yeah.....maybe time to dial down the Disney talk a notch. *sob*
Oh my goodness, this made me I know it's terrible, but that was funny!

Resort Changers - Again - So sorry.

cherylsmike -- April 14 - 21 @ POP Century

We went over budget on the car we bought my daughter this week, but DH says its a good, safe car for his little girl.

Now I get to plan a reveal! Fun. I have some ideas but I have a couple days to decide.

I have a dilemma so I thought I'd stop by and ask for the advice of my friends over at the April thread!

So I'm arranging a breakfast ADR for the day we leave. We originally had a breakfast ADR for another day, but since we're leaving so late in the day, we thought it made more sense to maximize our park time and have a relaxing breakfast before going home.

The reservation I cancelled was for Kona Cafe, but I was second guessing it. There isn't much on the menu my mom would eat, and I feel a buffet is more suited to her tastes and probably a better use of a dining credit. I booked 1900 Park Fare (for a 10 am breakfast so we can sleep in), because it's a extensive looking buffet with characters we both really like and may not otherwise see. What do you guys think? Anyone have any experience with 1900 Park Fare? Is 10 am too late or okay?

We left a little over a week ago... and we just booked flights for April 19 through 29th. We do not have a resort yet, as the new annual passholder part of the website does NOT work. AAAAAARRRRGGGGHHH! Although, it looks like the April discounts for APs haven't been posted yet... so I guess it doesn't really matter. I often wonder why there is such a delay.

Rubbing the Genie lamp for a pin code here!

Anyways... back to Disney for us!!! With one new little visitor, our daughter, many new experiences with the older boys... and hopefully, a couple new tours.
