I just read this thread:
http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=2993048

I know my H will lvoe the skillett, but everyone else was going to do a'la carte. I'm not going to drop the ressie until I actually see the menu, but I want to have a back up in place NOW, before everyone else jumps ship!

It's the night of our MVMCP so now I'm lost as to where we should eat... there isn't much open this close to the date...

Here are my choices:
Maya Grill (Coronado Springs) @ 5:15
Raglan Road (DTD) @ 5

Should we do a counter service in MK since we'll be there for the party anyway? Or eat at our resort (AoA)? We have the DxDP so I hate to "waste" a TS credit, but I will... and to think, I was SO happy with my ADRs....
If I had deluxe, I would eat at Tonys or Wave.

That reminds me that I need to order the PP+ too. Tried to order online but they won't take my Disney Rewards Redemption Card through the website so I wanted to call them but they are only open from 9am until 1pm EDT. I'll have to try to remember to call tomorrow to see if they'll take this as payment.

I have never done BBB but since we may never get to go again we have budgeted to spend about $250 from everything I have read on the disboards and from other places i dont think we can get around spending that much. We are doing the big package though that includes the dress and makeover, but the other packages don't seem to expensive for Disney. My daughter wants tinkerbell wings that light up and they aren't included so that is why we plan on spending more, and besides its my little girls 3rd birthday so we will go all out this time, if we are lucky enough to get to go again we will bring our own dress and accessories. I did just get an email for 25% off accessories from the Disney store so you could probably save a ton by buying your stuff here... Now I am thinking my decision of buying everything there... Oh boy I thought I had it all figured out

We did it the last time we went in 2010 for DD1's 5th birthday at MK. We did the full package with the dress and everything and it was right around $200. They do a photo shoot during and after and it all goes on your photopass. Some printouts are included with the price too. The dresses they have as part of that package are (or at least, were at the time) of a higher quality than you could find anywhere else on property or in stores. Small details of the jewels, stitching, etc were noticeable over other dresses you could find. DD1 wanted to be Cinderella so we got her that and she wore it around the park all day plus at Halloween and various Halloween parties too. One of her friends had a princess dress up party and they all wore their dresses and hers stood out and had the other parents asking us where we got such a nice dress. They use a TON of hair gel and it actually lasts for a couple of days if you don't wash it out and even then it's moderately difficult to wash out. I'm assuming the purpose behind that is so parents don't spend all of that money on a one day hairdo. The price was about $200 after tax and I don't remember if we tipped the FGMIT or not, as my mom paid for it. DD1 also got a special sash that said Birthday Princess on it.

Trying to post a picture below...

This changed our original plans of attending a wedding that Sat. however Baby Girl Iliyana Naomi was born at 3:22am on Sept. 15th so it was well worth it. After spending time with baby and family we headed back home to host a friend’s baby shower at his house at 7pm. Then yesterday it was back to cheer practice followed by a 2nd babyshower at the cheer gym for the coach. Ended last night of course watching football (GO GIANTS!!!!!) So here we are...Monday morning and it's back to the grind.
Congrats on the new niece! You were very busy!

SHe is beautiful!
Thank you. She was thrilled to get the dress for her birthday. She plans on wearing it when we meet Merida and for breakfast at the castle.

It was my first time posting a picture and it was huge sorry about that.

Thank you. She had fun wearing it. She didn't take it off until bedtime. Today the actual bow and arrow set came from disney. She had to go put the dress on and practice her archery skills. Ha Ha!

To much! Ha Ha! We have done it twice the first time she just got the makeover I want to say that was about $70.00. The next time she got the outfit and all. I want to say it was about 150.00. Not exactly sure but well worth it. She was thrilled and got so much attention from the characters. She was dressed as Jasmine and when Aladdin went by on a float during the parade he blew her a kiss. So sweet.

Confused myself with all of my ADRs...

So my minor freak out over Whispering Canyon Cafe changing their menu isn't such a big deal now -- our ressie there is on our MK day, not our MVMCP day!

For the party we have an ADR @ Cape May Cafe for the Clam Bake @ 5:10, then we'll be heading to the party right after.

As for WCC, I made a back-up ressie at the Trail's End Dinner Buffet just in case we decide to skip it. It's still a boat ride away from the MK, which is what I wanted

Apparently quite a few menus will be changing tomorrow... I hope I don't have to scramble to change my ADRs!!! I liked things just as they were....

Good morning ya'll.

I don't think I'm going to worry about the menue changes. The places we have ADRs at are as much for atmosphere as the food. Its Disney..... Its all good!!

Woohoo! PP+ Ordered!

Turns out I could pay for it with my Disney Redemption card or a gift card. I just missed the box where that was on the order page the first time through.

That burns a little more than half of what I had saved up on that card, but that's what it's for right?

Hope everyone has a good day.
