It was great to see you at CRT and I look forward to seeing you and Em again in Feb!! I had no idea that you could get a retake on the photo. I really wish I'd asked for one because our first one was terrible. The shadows were very strange and it looked like Eilee and I had giant beehive hairdos! Our food was ok when we went but we loved the atmosphere and the princesses so it was worth it!

I'll PM you when I get the TR started.
Thanks Kathy! I loved the first few photos you posted for your latest TR. You are such a legend around here that by the time I subscribed only hours after you started your review I was post # 38 or something.

We were at CRT for dinner on our vacation (I can't believe we have been back for almost a week!!) It was by far the best family meal on our vacation. The food was good (nothing amazing) however the characters, process and our server were amazing! This is now a staple for every trip - however I think we are going to try for breakfast next time. The castle was pretty dark at night. It looks like as always you had a great time and sounds like a perfect "last meal" at Disney!
Hi there! I'm glad that you had a great family experience there. This is becoming somewhat of a tradition for us as well since we will have our 3rd last meal of the trip at CRT soon.

Two choices

A) I convince my boss I have to got to LA for "work" again

OR

B) you are in WDW the first two weeks of Dec 2013!

Ha ha - both are unlikely but either way your reviews are awesome and I look forward to the next batch
Awww thanks Linda! Hmmm.. either plan A or plan B would benefit me to see you again. Are you not going during F&W next year?? Hmm... you never know...

Yes, my hubby the Packer fan. I think he knew the Tracy was a Packer fan so he wanted to sport the team colors!

Given the mice are somewhat out of sight I wonder what other Cinderella themed artifacts are there??

Great, delicious reviews!!!
Oh my.. now I am picturing Belle wiping out a couple little ones with her ball gown.

Thanks Jersette for reading along.

I am definitely looking forward to seeing you again!

Maybe the photo people felt so bad for us since Michael took a really lousy photo! I liked the first one. Just saying....

Kathy - thank you so very much. I sincerely appreciate your thoughtfulness! I am waiting for Michael to get home from work and then we are heading to LAX.

Good luck to your son! Praying for all of you during this time! I have a friend who has a son that will be shipped out right after Christmas.

They have MAJORLY changed the menu since our 2010 trip to CRT. I had the stuffed french toast but it didn't look ANYTHING like that! Do you mind me sharing?



Again… another meal I *thought* I'd be okay with skipping.

Thank you for all of your reviews! I'm not much of a commenter, more of a lurker, but I enjoyed reading about all your experiences (except maybe the Brown Derby!) and seeing your photos. I hope you have a great visit with your son and a merry Christmas!

Hi Brenda! Even though it's been a few weeks since I last posted on this site (it's been a challenging semester, and final exams are wrapping up this week), I had to pop by to say I'm still loving the report. Too bad it's almost over - this has been such an awesome collection of reviews, DIS meets, and fun stories. Also, I hope yesterday went well - it's great that you've gotten to spend some time with your son recently, and I'm praying for his safe return.

Wish I had time to write more (since there's so much more to say - for starters, HBD is off my list for a while ), but finals are calling me.

There you are DDW! I was just telling Brenda that I'm going to WDW in Feb for the 1/2 marathon and I just made a reservation for a party of 1 at Jiko on my first night there...and it's all your fault due to your wonderful reviews. I can't wait! I'll bring a little something to read and enjoy a solo dining experience. It's good to see you popping in for a bit and good luck with finals!

Your breakfast at CRT looked like a lovely way to end your trip! A magical memory!

Wishing your DS the best on his deployment. My prayers are with him and your family~ his service is very much appreciated!

Aww... I missed the end of your dining report. It sounds like the trip ended with some great meals! I am sorry you were too full to enjoy Citrico's! It has some great food options!

Yep, I'm still here! Between schoolwork and other college stuff, I don't get to spend as much time on this site. But that's okay - it's fun to pop by and skim some updates.

I hope you have a great meal at Jiko! It's probably the WDW restaurant that I'm missing most right now. Plus, bringing something to read sounds like a great way to enjoy a pleasant, relaxing solo meal.

Thanks so much Christen for the well wishes.

I have to say that THAT stuffed french toast looks better than the version that I have ordered. It looks more like the puffed french toast at Crystal Palace.

Hi there nfggirl! Thanks for reading and being a non-lurker now! I really appreciate your kind words and yes, we had an awesome time with our son the last few days!! Wishing you all the best this Christmas as well!

THERE YOU ARE MR. DDW!!!! Glad to see you are still around the DisBoards however infrequent!!! Sorry for the challenging semester but all that hard work will pay off when you are the CEO of some multi-national corporation!!

Thanks for your thoughful words - it is appreciated! The last few days with our son were pretty wonderful.

Hi Paula! I'm so far behind with everyone's reviews but I promise to get caught up this week!

Next time I vow to not let lousy meal planning get the better of me so I can enjoy Citricos!
