Sounds like some interesting changes! Excited for a vip experience in Cars Land!
I vote for Steakhouse 55 too. That is one place we meant to go last time & didn't make it there.

I'm excited about the changes! Thanks for updating us, Kevin! The Carsland part is especially exciting.

As far as dinner that Friday, I'm fine with whatever everyone else wants to do. Seems like we have quite a few votes for Steakhouse 55. I'm good with that. I'm supposed to see Cheryl tonight so I'll ask her but I'm sure she'll be fine with anything...

Even though I know its closer to two months, it really tickles me to see that 1 month starting off the countdown in my ticker.

This is good I count that 11 people are represented (either themselves or their co-traveler) as saying Steakhouse 55, 3 people saying "whatever", and the other 3 not yet responding. That's a solid majority right now for Steakhouse 55. There's no hurry to decide anyways, but based on what I'm seeing, it seems that is what we'll go with.

Kim - Looking at the menu for Napa Rose - I agree that you probably aren't going to get out of there with less than $75-100 per person, with most entrees running in the $40-$50 range, the lowest cost item is $39 with most sides an additional $10 or more.

Steakhouse 55 isn't much cheaper, but you certainly have more options for less expensive fare. Entrees seem to run $27-$40, but in the normal steakhouse tradition, any sides are extra. There are 4 options I see (chicken, salmon, pork and prime rib) that are $30 or less. I think here your talking $50-$75.

Gosh - as I look at the Steakhouse 55 menu, it is making my mouth water. Maybe it is just the diet I am on (goal to lose 12 lbs before this trip - already down 6!), but I'm thinking "I want that, and that, and that!" However, based on the menu, I hope we don't have any vegetarians in the group! (Not that Napa Rose looks any better on that front.)

As I think about it, another reason I lean towards Steakhouse 55 is now we don't have any meals scheduled at the Disneyland Hotel, and I really am almost more excited to see the Disneyland Hotel than the Grand Californian.

I know Kevin recommended Catal, and that looks great too. My head is at whichever one we do Friday night, Ulana and I will eat at the other one for breakfast on Saturday before we leave, as both came highly recommended for breakfast from the Disneyland side of the DIS.

Agree there are some people that don't seem to frequent the boards as often, which is another reason I thought I would wait a few weeks before making any reservation to give those folks a chance to pass through. However, you have a good suggestion - if Kevin would be willing to mention it to everyone in an e-mail, that would be great. Though I wonder how big a party they would actually be willing to accommodate.

Hi Folks,

As this is not part of the actual Adventure, I dont feel that the information / invitation should come from me.

Everyone was told that this thread is here and invited to participate.

Also, not everyone is staying an extra night. Some folks are leaving some time Friday during the day.

The good news is that even if you don't hear from everyone, you will be able to ask them in person at the start of the Adventure. Should you need to increase the number on your ADR, I'm sure your guides will assist.

Thanks,
Kevin

Fair enough, Kevin! I wasn't much concerned myself since I figured that most people will come through here at some point in the next few weeks.

Very true, I'm sure if we book a group of 20, and we need to bump it to 24, it wouldn't be much of an issue at all.

Hey Pete! As Christy has stated, I'm absolutely fine with Steakhouse 55 or anywhere else everybody wants to have dinner on Friday.

Less than 2 months now...YIPPEE!!!

I agree Christy, I'm loving the 1 month on the ticker also. The time is going fast, before we know it, we'll all be sitting down to the welcome dinner. ,

I had a quick trip to WDW this past week, and I was able to meet Lisa in person for the first time. Jeff and Val made the arrangements. They are good that way.

The trip is getting closer, and I can finally start getting excited about it now that my latest WDW trip is done.

Hopefully all the DOSH problems causing ride closures over the last few days at Disneyland will be sorted by the time we are out there.

I think that will be more than settled by then, the issues were with an injury during off-hours and how safety rigs were set. I'm sure they'll get that figured out.

I remember seeing about that it would be grad nights while we're there. Hopefully that doesn't make it too crowded. I suppose all the FPs and exclusive viewing areas will probably make it all not matter.

Grad night? Oh No! I hope it's not too crowded. It's kind of ironic - We're leaving our teenager at home.

So I'm guessing they don't close the park for Grad Night like they used to in Florida?
