Ch-ch-ch-changes! ADR changers strike again! This time, it's because we changed resort plans! With AoA LM rooms being excluded from free dining, we priced it out and could stay at a moderate for LESS than AoA since were doing the DxDDP. Started looking even MORE and realized I could rent DVC points for 2-3 nights and only spend an additional $100! It's my mom's dream to stay at AKL, so that's what I'm doing - I'm going to make her dream come true and she has no clue I booked 2 nights at AKV and we'll then move over to CSR for 7 more nights. I'm not telling her at all - we'll just pull up to AKV - Kidani!

Not too much has changed, mainly just times. The more I read of Via Napoli and Tutto Italia, the more I second guess myself here... Perhaps we'll just do one of them?? Thoughts?? Still hunting down a resort lunch as well...

Lots of updates going on! We booked ADRs at Saana and Boma, changed California Grill and Ohana to opposite days, added a lunch at Captain's Grille, breakfast at Pepper Market, another Crystal palace breakfast or dinner, a BOG QS lunch, and a Wishes Dessert Party

I'm *SO* Happy I got that picture too - it's one of my favorites from that entire trip!

Let me tell you, this brought a tear to my eye. I have been there for my daughter, 2 nieces and my stepdaughters first time seeing the castle and there is nothing like it.

Updated ADRs *again*

Got free dining applied to our reservation this morning! Even upgrading from a Value to a Mod and up to DxDDP we still saved nearly $900!!

No matter how your heart is grieving, if you keep on believing, the dream that you wish will come true.

A couple more updates! We decided to go with the Candlelight Processional Dining Package since the CP is a do not miss for us! I want to be sure we get in! We went with the 3:30pm "dinner" at Coral Reef for the 6:45 showing of the CP. Really we are using the 3:30 Coral Reef as a super late lunch and doing a late dinner at Via Napoli. Also switched around a few things to accommodate a few park changes and we changed our Narcoossee dinner to a dinner at Jiko

Joining in Your kids are ADORABLE! Love your choices of restaurants...we'll be eating at a few of the same places, and some for the first time! Looks like you have plenty of time to change your ADRs a few times Our trip is less than 3 weeks out and I'm still switching restaurants and times around

Thanks!! Welcome aboard!! I'm super excited for our ADRs and yes - plenty of time to move them around Though free dining puts a damper on that - so many of the good ADRs are gone, gone gone! I'm pretty happy with what I have, but I'm sure I'll do SOME changes!
