WHAT? YOU'RE EATING WHERE???

Sorry for the lack of update. It's been a busy couple of weeks with yardwork, traveling to and from the parents and in-laws and nursing a sick kiddo, hubby and self. I think we're (mostly) back to normal. I was able to make our ADR's on Saturday, June 2nd, and except for the Le Cellier reservation (which will open up once CP times are released---rumoured to be June 26th!) and the Be Our Guest (Fingers crossed we're able to experience this one!), I'm really happy with our reservations. We originally had Cinderella's Royal Table on 11.30, but the more and more I thought about it, I couldn't stomach that we were paying $137 dollars for it. If we had a child that was really into princesses, I wouldn't hesitate, but he'd be fine meeting them at the Town Hall Meet and Greet. We've just recently seen "Lilo and Stitch" and he LOVED it, so I think he'll really appreciate the 'Ohana breakfast, and DH loves that we added yet another 'Ohana experience to our list:

Yes! I saw that yesterday on the December thread. I was about to go into a meeting but said I had something important to take care of first and booked Le Celliar at 1pm on 12/1 and Coral Reef on 12/4 at 6:30p. I don't know if we'll keep the Coral Reef one since we're over on TS credits and I don't want to pay a lot OOP. We'll see.....

161 days!

GREAT! Glad to have you. I'm loving your TR, but you knew that! I think our MIL's should be friends. We don't want to trash talk them, but sometimes this face is all we can do

Today I was up at 5:45am Central time. Why????



FREE DINING!!!

As suspected, I'm glad I bumped back our arrival date from 11/30 to 11/29. 11/30 was a blackout date, and that gives us an extra day in the park. WAHOO! Last year we saved a ton of money doing this instead of a room only discount.

I was looking at our reservation today and saw we are going to be there for 10 days. That's like a 1/3 of a month. We're crazy people!!

I love the suitcase you got for Eli. I have to get one for my 3 year old. He would go crazy for it.

I was so excited to get it. We'd gone to WDW last year and he'd asked for it, but I was hesitant to spend the $$ and get him more stuff, but I got such a good deal on it for this trip. They have cute Lightening McQueen ones, too!

Thanks! I was in the planning lull most of June (you reach the post ADR-making time and still have something like 140 days), so I NEED to update with our daily breakdowns soon!

There are lovers and haters of 'Ohana. Clearly, we LOVE it. I was looking at our dining schedule and said to DH last night... "you realize we'll be there 3 times (2 dinners, 1 breakfasts) on this trip?" and he gave me the "yeah, so?" look It's a good value on the DDP, I think!

I was disappointed in the dates.......we come in on the 7th of Dec and the first December date is the 10th. I don't have the leisure of holding off for a few days.....so no discounts for us.

I'm hoping for BOG either Tuesday or Wednesday. We'll be there with another family at the same time (not together, but we're all hoping for BOG together). Fingers crossed ADR's come out soon!

I definitely think the dates are a lot more sparse this year. Last year we arrived on that Friday to get Free Dining and this year it's a blackout date. Luckily, we'll just come in later on Thursday, since we both had off Friday anyway.
