Great start! Loving your PDR!
Those photos are making me hungry! The chocolate pudding from Ireland... almost has my name on it!

Really excited to hear how it goes. We are going next year just after you. Yup... we have a whole year or so to wait

Can't wait to hear how it went! Only a few weeks now, right?!

Thanks for joining! I can't believe it's less than two weeks now until I arrive at Pop! So excited!

:jum ping2::mal eficen::

Who would like to join me in doing the single digit dance?

Yesterday was my 10 day window so I checked-in online! Boy does that make this all feel so much more real! I've also done some preliminary packing (re: putting things in piles) and made my to-do-before-i-leave and to-pack lists. I know these belong more in a PTR than a PDR, but the PTR I started over a year ago no one reads so I may as well put it here. It's got to be dining related somehow. How about "Gee, my trip is so close I can taste it!"

To-Do-Before-I-Leave list
Notify bank that I'm traveling and please don't shut off my bank card!
Print out NSSHP ticket
Charge camera
Take out money and get singles for tips
Call to activate Rewards Card
Pay some bills
Gas up the car
Cash a check and mail a package
Deposit a check
Laundry
Pack

To Pack list
Sunscreen
Singles
Travel size toiletries
sneakers and sandals
camera and charger
cotton balls and earring cleaner solution
put a change of clothes in carry on bag
Laptop and charger
NSSHP ticket and travel docs
Books
Swim suit
Breakfast bars
Ponchos
Park bag
reusable water bottle
Clothes for all weather

Whew! It seems like a lot. Not only do I have all that, I also am at a conference from the 19th to 23rd and leaving for Orlando straight from that conference. So I also have to bring all my things for this trip with me on top of professional clothes.

So here's another change to report, lol. But the great news is, I've added a reservation instead of cancelling one! Wednesday during my MK day I will now be eating lunch at Liberty Tree Tavern! I will be having dinner here later in my trip but I've never been here for lunch and really want to try that Toffee Cake everyone raves about. So now my dining plans look like this:

Tuesday October 23
Dinner at Everything Pop, use 1 CS credit

Wednesday October 24
12:50 p.m. lunch at Liberty Tree Tavern, use 1 TS credit
Dinner at Cosmic Ray's, use 1 CS credit

Thursday October 25
Lunch at Food and Wine Fest, use 1 CS credit and 3 SC
6:45 p.m. dinner at 'Ohana, use 1 TS credit

Friday October 26
8:35 a.m. breakfast at Kona Cafe, pay oop
Lunch at Lunching Pad in MK, use 1 SC for cream cheese pretzel
5:35 p.m. dinner at Liberty Tree Tavern, use 1 TS credit

Saturday October 27
1:50 p.m. lunch at Les Chefs de France, use 1 TS credit
Dinner at Food & Wine Fest, use 2 CS credits & 1 SC

Sunday October 28
Breakfast of School Bread snagged the night before, use 1 SC
Lunch at Toy Story Pizza Planet, use 1 CS credit
6:45 p.m. dinner at Grand Floridian Cafe, use 1 TS credit

Monday October 29
9:55 a.m. brunch at Boma, use 1 TS Credit

8 days now!

Ch-ch-chaaangeees

I really need to learn that nothing can be set in stone, even a week before your trip! Remember that time I said, long ago, that there would be NO more changes? I must have been hallucinating because not only did I make a change (albeit for the better) yesterday, I have made ANOTHER change today! But I think it's a pretty good one.

Boma is OUT on Monday the 29th. What I thought might be a relaxing morning of brunch before my departure has now turned into an early morning at.....

Animal Kingdom!

Apparently I completely missed the detail that AK has early EMH the 29th. I didn't think I'd have time for a park this day since my ME pickup will be sometime around 1 p.m., meaning I'd only have 2 hours if the parks open at 9 a.m. BUT now that I know AK will open at 8, I've decided to cancel Boma and pay the $10 to add a 6th day to my ticket. Now I don't have to pay OOP for any meals and the cost to add another day to my park pass is cheaper than what I would have paid OOP for even the least expensive meal on my ADR list. So now my plans look like this:

Tuesday October 23
Dinner at Everything Pop, use 1 CS credit

Wednesday October 24
12:50 p.m. lunch at Liberty Tree Tavern, use 1 TS credit
Dinner at Cosmic Ray's, use 1 CS credit

Thursday October 25
Lunch at Food and Wine Fest, use 1 CS credit and 3 SC
6:45 p.m. dinner at 'Ohana, use 1 TS credit

Friday October 26
8:35 a.m. breakfast at Kona Cafe, use 1 TS credit
Lunch at Lunching Pad in MK, use 1 SC for cream cheese pretzel
5:35 p.m. dinner at Liberty Tree Tavern, use 1 TS credit

Saturday October 27
1:50 p.m. lunch at Les Chefs de France, use 1 TS credit
Dinner at Food & Wine Fest, use 1 CS credit & 1 SC

Sunday October 28
Breakfast of School Bread snagged the night before, use 1 SC
Lunch at Toy Story Pizza Planet, use 1 CS credit
6:45 p.m. dinner at Grand Floridian Cafe, use 1 TS credit

Monday October 29
Early breakfast at Everything Pop, use 1 CS credit

I would like to say that NO MORE CHANGES are coming my way, but I can't guarantee it, lol. I'm such a planner and really dislike changes but I'm not freaking out about these changes as much as I normally would!

OMG I LEAVE IN 2 DAYS!

Hope you all will follow along with live updates in the Coming To You Live thread that jabead is organizing. It's the best thread in the Dining Reviews, IMHO. I'll post a more detailed dining report when I get back the 29th.
