Awww....your video so cute! I love that band....always exciting to hear them play. And I love the excitement over the castle!

Dinner sounds like it was a lot of fun! We've been pleased with eating at Chef Mickey's in the past. Looks like y'all had some great character interaction!

I LOVE that ribbon! How long did it take to come in? On the website it said ordering closes September 5 and I want 2 for Halloween... do you think I should order them now or wait until later? Thanks (:

Yay Chef Mickey's!!! I'm so glad that you guys enjoyed it! Also, glad you had an excellent Donald. That is really sweet about Goofy and your friend back home. Too bad your food got cold but the characters are the most important part, so it happens! Gotta love the napkin twirling!

I'm so glad that you guys had fun at Chef Mickey! The food's not outstanding, but the character interactions have always been amazing for us. DH insists that CM is our last meal of every trip!

Aren't the chef costumes adorable? They're my faves.

I FINALLY caught up. Woohoo! I love the pictures of your view from Bay Lake! You had a fantastic location!

Yum for Contempo Cafe! I am not surprised your sister loved that flatbread... that thing is freakin' amazing!!!

Yay for getting FP's! Your pictures of the Castle seriously made me miss Disney SO MUCH. Gahh I can't wait to go back!

And I LOVE CHEF MICKEY'S!!!!! Seriously, that is one of my favorite meals. I love the character interaction and the FOOD. Nom nom. I'm glad you liked the Mickey Oreo Bon Bons! Those are awesome.

We all got ‘freshened up’ and ready to go to dinner. I stared out the window at the castle for a while. Normal, everyday stuff, ya know?
Right, exactly. Same here. Except oh wait, I was staring out at my neighbor's house and a tree. Sigh.

Aw, I love that pic of you & your bro! Awesome Up shirt!!!

Ok, now I'm going to have the image of Donald Duck competing in the women's gymnastic team at the Olympics in my head all day. HAHAHAHAHA
I just bought a bunch of those bows!!! Wooohooo I can't wait to wear them!

Aww! I love Minnie in her apron. It's been too long since I've been to Chef Mickey's, but it's so hard to get a reservation. Maybe next time!

Way to go getting a Chef Mickey ADR, that one has always been to elusive for us to snag. I think I'm going to have to start just planning trips (that will all likely never happen) and get one 180 days out. We have always wanter to go there it looks so fun and delicious!

I just watched your video (I can see those at work - shhhhhh!) and I have to say that it just brightened my morning. Thanks! Now I really can't wait to go back.

Chef Mickey's is fun, I've only been once but I liked the character interaction a lot! The food isn't that great but you don't really go there to eat!

I love your bow, I was wondering what it was and where you got it when I saw the pictures, and then I read the paragraph! So cute!
Thank you! Ugh I totally get it, it's the same for me!

It is! I liked the food, at least what I got to eat! HAHA.

Thanks!!! Yeah, there's another one coming up later too!

Yay for Chef Mickey's! Bummer the line for the picture was long but yeah, it's not like they give you the picture for free (which I think they should, haha). I wish that when my sister and I went last year I would've thought to ask them to take a picture with my camera. Oh well. Ohh I hate it when you get pictures and someone isn't looking at the camera! It just gets too confusing with photopass and everything. But your picture with Mickey is still cute!

haha oh yes, the Fab Five (gymnastics version, not Disney version) has apparently renamed themselves the Fierce Five. Maybe they did it because they know about the Disney characters.
Thanks! Hahaha. I love them too. It's funny though, since I've only really heard them play one song!

It's fine, we weren't planning on taking the picture anyway! It all worked out. OH, I KNOW. It kept happening! Omg, it's really annoying, I won't lie. ALL of my pictures from Akershus have the princesses looking at the wrong camera! Sigh. But thanks! I could tell the blurry one was cute too, but what are ya gonna do? Hahah.

That's definitely why they did it. Makes sense to me!

Not gonna lie, I don't have a sophisticated palate by any means, but I really enjoy Chef Mickey's for the characters AND food. Heck, it's better than I could cook, so that's a win right there!
OH YES. I basically love all mashed potatoes that aren't instant. SO GOOD. Haha, I completely agree.

I don't either! I really liked the food I ate that wasn't cold! Yum. EXACTLY. HAHAHA.

UMM HELLO! MY FAVORITE DISNEY SHIRT I OWN, we have such good taste, no?! AND I lovelovelove your headband/Donald ribbon! I might have to buy a few of these for our trip, they're just too cute!

I love your photo with Donald! Those "candid" photos are my favorites at Disney World! Donald is ridiculously cute, I must say!

Not gonna lie, that food looks delish right now! PLUTOOOOO! Mickey and Pluto are my favs. of the fab 5. Mickey has always been number one, but Pluto has become a favorite because he just reminds me of my dogs who I adore... plus my character interaction with him last trip was adorable. So basically, I'm a dork who is in love with meeting characters.

I've had some amazing cornbread at Disney buffets, and also at Whispering Canyon! Disney knows what they're doing!

I'm with you on the chicken nuggets; Disney chicken nuggets are my favorite.

Sounds like you guys had a great meal! I will have to check out Chef Mickey's at some point, clearly!

Can't wait to see what you guys are up to next!
Thanks! Aww. Hahha yeah, exactly. I was like YEP, let's go.

Yes, we do!!! I love that shirt! THANK YOU AHHH, you should totally order some! I really want the Buzz/Woody ones! AND ALL THE ARIEL ONES.

Aw thanks! I agree, they're a lot of fun! Donald is precious... I love him.

It was really good!!! Aww that's too cute. I love them all! You really can't go wrong with the FAB FIVE! And um. So am I. It's fine.

Oh yes. The cornbread was so good! I just couldn't eat it all... no clue why??? And YES. Hahah, chicken nuggets are my go-to counter service meal!

I'd recommend it!

It was! All the characters were great, but Donald was fantastic! He was the best, hands down.

Hooray! Thank you! Oh my gosh it was just phenomenal. Still can't believe it!

Hahah I was! She doesn't eat stuff like that, at least I didn't think so!

It was AWESOME. Aww I totally get it! BUT YOU GET TO GO TO DISNEYLAND!!!

I loved it too! It was such a cute place and the food (that I ate at least) was so good! Especially the mashed potatoes AHHHH. The characters are wonderful!!! I got some of them on video including the Donald one! LOVE. AND YES. That was awesome! Hahha I wasn't sure if I should call it a bon bon since that's why they call the ones at Cape May... but I guess that's what it is!

HAHAH. Sigh indeed. I look out the window and see... a car. It's thrilling, really.

Thank you! I love that shirt. It just DISNEY. BAM.

Donald may be a bird, but he definitely doesn't fly as high on those bars as that Gabby Douglas.

Did you?!?! That's so exciting, which ones did you get? I want more haha.

She is precious. Aw man! Next time for sure!

Hahah thanks! I actually didn't realize it was a tough one to get! We did so much ADR shuffling before the trip... I think I got that one a couple months out, to be honest! Hopefully one day you'll get to go though, it really was so much fun!
