Same.

BBB and recreational stuff doesn't either. It'd be nice if it did!

That's a LOT of food- how many people are going??
I know! - We have 12 people going and we will be in the cabins for a few days. It is going to be a circus so I am trying to have as much food together in advance in order to decrease stress levels at meal times. Nothing is worse than being tired and hungry with 6 kids 7 and under and your in-laws!

Hi Everyone! Late entry here. We had planned a trip for Feb of this year all year last year. When free dining never materialized we kind of gave up on Disney for the year. Well hubby was prodding me to "find a way" to get our middle daughter there. She will be turning 9 in Feb and he is afraid we are going to miss seeing her light up one last time We've been there twice, once when oldest daughter was 4 1/2 and middle was a baby, then when oldest was 8+, and middle was almost 4. Both magical vacations age/princess wise.
Anyway after reading about the elusive "pin codes" I called on Jan 3rd and low and behold we had FREE dining!! So we are now heading to CBR Feb 23rd-March 1st. (kicking my behind we didn't extend til 2nd And now it's a $100 fee per person to change air on JetBlue so not happening ). This is our 1st trip as a family of 5! Jaselyn is 13, Jadalyn is going to be 9, and our son Jaxden turned 2 in July. I have a few qs. Obviously ADRs are slim pickins. Any chance of getting better times, restaurants closer time or there? We are use to girly things so suggestions for Jax? Thanks y'all for any help

I am going that week also, and reservations are pretty open except for BOG. You might get lucky depending on what you want. Just take a look!

Zero at BOG so we will do lunch but REALLY want to do Ohana again, kids loved last time, and earliest all week is 8:35 pm. Not sure DS will be at all tolerable then... Or should I say not sure he would make anyone else's dinner there tolerable

It's our 1st time staying on site, so I thought I'd be better on checking in normally.
I know a few people mentioned they put down 1st trip in their reservations, so I wanted to note that. I know a couple said they got pins/buttons for their kids first trip??? Thought that might be cool for my guys (8 &5)

Thanks! I'm really looking forward to these tours! I suspect they will be highlights of our trip.

Oh and a fun little idea, don't know if anyone else is interested.... I was at the grocery store and they were clearing out Christmas stuff. They had Disney soaps (2 soaps and lotion for the girls 2 soaps and hairgel for the boys) for $2.50. I got Cars for DS and princesses for DD. I'm going to wrap them up and put them on the beds for when we get back to the room our 1st night. I also got DD a Barbie Cinderella for $4.75. Just need to find something else for DS. Figured they could find a special surprise the middle of the trip as well.
Was going to leave them on the bed, but didn't want to make it hard for Mousekeeping to make the beds. Guess I'll just leave them on the dresser for the kids to find.

We're staying at Art of Animation in The Little Mermaid from 2/11 to 2/17! So excited!


We've never been so I have a shuttle question. We scheduled a character breakfast at 1900 Park Fare the same day we're going to Epcot. Will we be able to take a shuttle from 1900 Park Fare straight to Epcot or will we have to ride back to Art of Animation to take that shuttle to Epcot? Basically how much trouble have I gotten myself into? Lol

You WILL get first time buttons and buttons for anything else you can think of to celebrate. Every time we have CM's checking us in that insist we must have something to celebrate. Buttons all round! Fun souvie!

Hop on the monorail at the Grand Floridian. Switch at the transportation depot to the Epcot line. Have fun!!!
Or you can take the bus straight to Epcot.

Decided to change our resort from Saratoga to AKV Kidani Village. We stayed there in November and I totally fell in love. Our dates are staying the same 9th -16th.

Kidani is awesome! We stayed in Feb. 2010 and fell in love, also! The only reason we are staying at BLT is the convenience of the monorail with a double stroller. When the children no longer need that monster, we will be Kidani bound every trip. Oh, we have the same dates, so I guess we are both hoping for good weather. You gotta love Mardi Gras holiday!
