Have you been to any of these places? I was looking at easywdw's summary of most of the DHS places and tbh, the pictures they put on the menus are sometimes are really unappealing
I have not been to any of them except Starring Rolls. On our last trip we chose some place that ended up being closed that day and we were stuck with nothing but lousy chili dogs in that section of the park. In truth, nothing but Starring Rolls gets consistently good reviews though I have seen good things about Min & Bills recently. In any event, given how awful most of the choices are I'll just be happy to have something mediocre. I don't know what it is about this park that the food is all terrible.

I also got the email! The DHS day doesn't work for me, either. But I made the fastpasses really late so perhaps we can do them the night we get in. The MK day is perfect- I got fastpasses for things JUST at the right times I wanted them.

That's what I'm thinking. If nothing else, we'll be able to do Toy Story.

Question- There's no reason we won't be able to hold other FP along with these, is there? I doubt my entire family will want to see Enchanted Tales with Belle or The Little Mermaid.
I'm glad your dog is doing well and hope she heals quickly!!

You might have noticed that my boyfriend glitters. It's just something that he does in the sun. Don't worry about it.

I just thought ..... I am so obsessed with everyone elses 'how many days ...' that I haven't even looked at mine.

I knew I went soon .... some time in the future ... probably next week.

I have 6 days

the local radio station is giving away a disney cruise in just a few minutes. I am on pins and needles to see if I won. Like I can fit in another disney trip this month.

Hollywood Studios
Star Tours
Toy Story Mania
Tower of Terror - We might leave before this time rolls around.

Magic Kingdom
Jungle Cruise
Winnie the Pooh - I loathe this ride, but my partner loves it, so I'm glad we'll be able to just hop on and off instead of having to wait in line or waste a FP.
Enchanted Tales with Belle - So glad this was an option because I didn't want to wait around forever for this one.
Peter's Pan's Flight - This is one I like to go on once, but wouldn't want to use a FP on.

I would have loved to get a Fantastic! seating one (if they even do that), but none of the F! days were on days that worked for us.
So cool that you get to use this!! Excited to hear how it works out.

Then rolled back over. I think I must have thought we were already at Disney.

/Adds pixie dust to the packing list.
Too funny!! Definitely dont forget the pixie dust!

I'm still undecided on what to do for dinner. It needs to be a counter service (DDP). I was leaning towards Min and Bill's but I'm afraid they will close too early for us to snag dinner. What good CS options are there? I'm thinking dinner sometime around 6 ish.
Good? None. . We ate at Pizza Planet and ABC last year. DH actually requested ABC for this year. We just got burgers and fries. PP is just mediocre Disney pizza, but they have a cappuccino cupcake that I want to try.

It's true!! We are so excited about everyone else's trip and then it hits you. Oh crap I am going too!! I have to pack and clean and all these other things people are doing.


Nope, no update. As I told a friend recently, I am getting on the plane on 12/15 and am assuming that my husband will be getting on with me.

Don't have time to read thru right now, just checking in from Epcot!

Quick note for anyone planning in eating lunch at BOG: I did yesterday, and the food was fantastic, but be warned they close off the line around 2:30-2:45 to enter. It took about 20 minutes after getting in line to even order, then eating time, and they need you out to set up for dinner. So don't wait too long to get in line for it!
