We never make a lot of ADR's either. Now we usually only do 2 character breakfasts and 1 or 2 lunches, and for us, that is a LOT! We are the same way, we'd rather just eat our food at a quick service and get on with our day. Our only exceptions to this are Via Napoli because it is soooo delicious, and Sci Fi because we just enjoy eating there. I am totally with you on ADR's! In the same way that we are an anomaly to them only making a few, I will never get scheduling three TS meals in a day. When do you do anything but eat?!

Hi Sarah,
I like your choices for your ADR's! Prime Time is a must do for us, and we are like you. We plan very few ADR's, counter service dining is so much easier for our days. There are many good choices at PT. Let me know if you want some suggestions. Hoop De Doo is fun, esp if you have never been. I have only done it once but we had a really good time when we went. We did find the transportation a hassle when it was over. We had to get to OKW, in hindsight we should have just taken a cab. Not sure what time your ADR is though, that might make a difference.
Good luck to Emma, she is probably already on her way down. Can't wait to hear where she will be working, would love to read her blog if you don't mind sharing the info.
Just remembered that you will be staying at BLT, so your transportation should be great back to your resort! A perfect trip to try Hoop De Doo.

We are trying 50's Prime Time for the first time this next trip. I only had two dates to choose from based on am EMH and the first date was his birthday. Since he didn't really enjoy the Whispering Canyon Cafe on our first trip, I decided that doing 50's on his birthday might not be a good idea, so we are doing it later in our trip.

We are also making our first visit to Fort Wilderness but we are going to Trail's End Breakfast on our anniversary. I'm trying to make that day a little more relaxed, so figuring a relaxing breakfast and then stroll around that area followed by a stroll over to WL and casually meandering there for a while would be a nice way to start the day instead of rushing to a park.
Wow, 11 ADRs, I can't even imagine!

That's exciting you are trying the Prime Time for the first time. I hope you guys enjoy it!

I think your Fort Wilderness plan sounds great! Have you ever been to the Wilderness Lodge before? It is such a beautiful resort and it is definitely worth taking a stroll over there. There is so much more to do than just visit the parks.

Oooh, Via Napoli is so good! I've eaten there twice, once with my dad and once with my sister. And the Sci Fi is always fun too. I am glad I'm not the only one who feels that way about ADRs. I also don't see how you can do 3 sit down meals in a day. I am usually so stuffed after one!

I agree, it is a lot easier with the QS places and atleast now we've discovered a few more that we never used to go to so we have some more variety. haha!

The couple times I've gone to Prime Time I've gotten the fried chicken but if you have any other recommendations let me know!

Yep, my parents and Emma left this morning around 9:30. Their flight should be leaving soon now. I will PM you the link to Emma's blog.

Hi everyone!

Well, as I mentioned in one of my replies, Emma and my parents are on their way down to Florida. They left for the airport around 9:30. Being the sap that I am, I of course started crying (like I did the last time she left for the CP...). Emma was fine though, probably because she's been ready to go back to Florida since she came home last January! Their flight should be leaving soon now. I told her to send me some pictures when they get there (and tomorrow when they're at the Magic Kingdom) so hopefully she'll do that. I will try to post a few "Emma updates" but I can also PM the link to her blog if anyone is interested.

Anyway, I can't wait to go down and visit in 78 days! So in honor of it being less than 80 days now, here's another DVC flashback!

DVC Flashback #2: December 2007/January 2008

This trip was actually the last trip we took as a whole family. We went for a few days after Christmas. I think the dates were Dec. 30-January 4...or something like that. Dad, Claire, and Emma stayed until the 5th, but I had to come home early because one of my good friends was getting married.

As usual, we were scheduled for another very early morning flight.


It turns out I should NOT have taken that picture. Right around the time we should have started boarding, one of the attendants made an announcement saying our flight was cancelled. Living in Wisconsin, it is always a little nervewracking traveling in the winter because you never know what the weather will be like. Well, there was no snow that day but a couple days before we had gotten a lot of snow and I think the flights were still screwed up from that. So the flight attendants have a mandatory 8-hour rest in between flights. We were told we would have to go back to ticketing to see if we could get on another flight later in the day. We rushed back downstairs to see what could be done. Obviously I was pretty upset because I had been looking forward to the trip and just wanted to get down there! Fortunately we were able to get on a flight in the evening. And since we live pretty close to the airport we were able to go back home instead of sitting around there all day. (As for that picture, I have decided I will never take pictures at our airport again because I'm afraid our flight will end up being cancelled again!)

However, there was one good thing that came out of all that trouble. We did end up getting some free flight vouchers, which allowed us to take a couple extra trips that we wouldn't have taken otherwise.

So, like I said we ended up coming home. I tried to take a nap (to make up for having to get up early for nothing) but was so disappointed and worried we wouldn't get out that it didn't really work.

Thankfully the later flight had no issues and we arrived in Orlando late in the evening. It took a while to get to the resort because the ME wasn't very busy. It was such a relief when we finally got to Saratoga Springs!!!

Aren't the decorations pretty?




Because it was the five of us, we stayed in a 2-bedroom villa which was really nice. By the time we got to our room it was probably close to midnight. Only 12 hours later than planned...We were originally planning on going to the Magic Kingdom for 7 AM opening. Dad asked us if we still wanted to go, which of course we did! We tried to get some sleep. We were also a little worried about our luggage not showing up because of the flight change but around 3 or 4 in the morning a CM brought it to our room. Emma and I were pretty excited at that point that we ended up watching some resort TV. Gotta love Stacey at 4 AM!

Just a couple hours later we were up again and on our way to the Magic Kingdom! It might sound crazy but it's such a busy time that it was still worth getting up that early to avoid the crowds.



We got our first glimpse of the castle dream lights. AMAZING!!!


We were able to do a few attractions and see the Christmas parade (yes, they did the Christmas parade in the afternoon...I actually think they did it twice a day) before heading out. This is what the park looked like after the parade:



Am I crazy for wanting to go again next year after Christmas? Maybe...

Other highlights from this trip were:

Staying in a 2-BR villa at Saratoga Springs
We were in Congress Park (our favorite section at SSR) and our room looked out over the marketplace.





Seeing the Christmas decorations
Really, nothing compares to Disney at Christmas. It may be crowded but seeing the parks and resorts all decked out for the holidays is amazing. This is partly why I really want to go back this December!

Lights of Winter at Epcot...so sad they don't do this anymore!




Osborne Lights!!!


Attending the Capital One Bowl in Orlando
My dad is a University of Michigan alum, so it was pretty cool that they happened to be playing in Orlando that year. Even better was they beat Florida!





After the game we went to the Magic Kingdom for Spectromagic and Wishes. Since we had our Michigan stuff on, a lot of people asked us about the game. We got a lot of congratulations from other SEC fans when they found out Michigan won. haha!


The weather
This isn't really a highlight, but if you notice in the above picture, we're all in jeans and sweatshirts/jackets. Our first park day was pretty nice but then it got really cold! We spent the rest of our trip dressed in warm clothes because it was in the 30s. Good thing we're from Wisconsin and had our mittens/gloves and everything! Of course the weather went back to normal after we got home.



Being in the Jingle Jungle Parade!!!
On our last full day, we went to the Animal Kingdom in the afternoon. We were planning on seeing Festival of the Lion King. While we were waiting in Camp Minnie Mickey, a CM started talking to us and then she asked if we wanted to ride in the parade! Of course we said yes! She told us to meet near the safari later on. We got to get dressed up in those vests and crazy hats (ours were Christmas trees). But the best part was we got to ride on the float with MICKEY!!! They gave us a disposable camera after they took our picture but sadly I don't think we ever got it developed. Otherwise I would have a picture of us. But here's a couple from the view on our float...





That was such a fun experience and a great way to end our trip. The only bad thing was we all had that song stuck in our heads afterward!

So even though it got off to a rough start, it turned out to be another good trip.

up next: Trip purchases!!!

Glad you are enjoying the flashbacks. Yup, it was near the walkway to World Showcase. I don't know why they got rid of it. They should bring it back.

haha, I think I've mentioned being in the parade a lot. It was such a great memory!

I didn't know they had updated the Narnia experience with a Jack Sparrow themed one! We'll have to check that out when we go back. We never did see the Prince Caspian one.

You are really going to love that theme park view! I can't wait for your pictures. I'd love to follow along with Emma's blog! I wish I had done the college program, too!

Loved the flashback pictures, esp the lights in Epcot. So much better than now. Don't get me wrong, Epcot still has some great Christmas decorations, but the lights were fantastic.
It must have seemed crazy to get up so early after your flight delay, but I am sure it was worth it.
I like the sampler dinner at PTC, a little of fried chicken, meatloaf and pot roast. The caesar salad with chicken or fish is also good. I forgot to mention that Beaches and Cream has a new menu, there open faced beef sandwich is so good. No ADR needed.....

Hey Kirsten! Welcome!

Oh, you know I love getting to the parks early to avoid the waits! I don't think it's sad at all. I think it's funny when people complain about busy times and not being able to do anything. Well, if you get there early you can!

I really wonder why they stopped putting that up.

Yeah, I am pretty sure it opened up on the same day as new Fantasyland.

The theme park view is going to be AWESOME! Knowing Emma had such a good time and decided to go back again makes me regret not doing it even more. If only I could go back in time...

haha yes, it was. Atleast we still got there.

The sampler and salad sound good. I will have to keep that in mind when we go. Thanks for the info on Beaches and Cream too! I hope we can make it there this trip.

Hello everyone!

76 days until our trip! YAY! I recently made a couple of trip-related purchases that I thought I'd share. Who doesn't love trip shopping?

The first thing I bought was a new pair of shoes! Has anyone seen those commercials for the Skechers GoWalk shoes? I thought they looked really cute and comfortable, not to mention they come in some fun colors. I decided to go over to Kohl's to see if they had any. Well, they only had boring colors but atleast I was able to try them on. All I can say is they were SO COMFORTABLE!!! I knew right then that I had to order a pair. I ended up getting these:



These are the GoRecovery style. I wore them the other day and did not want to take them off. Like I said, they're really comfortable and also lightweight. So they should be good for the parks.

My next purchase was of course another Vera Bradley bag! Seriously, I have a problem. I definitely didn't need a new one but the 2013 spring colors are so cute. I ended up getting the Clare in Jazzy Blooms:



I LOVE THIS COLOR!! Seriously, the picture does not do it justice. The background is gray and the colors (especially the pink and orange) are so bright. Mom said it seemed very Polynesian/tropical. The bag similar to the hipster in that it's a crossbody but it is a little bit wider, which I like since I have a bigger camera (though I am actually hoping to get a new camera before our trip...maybe as a birthday present to myself???).

Oh, and a quick Emma update: I have not heard much from my family but she did get checked in, went to casting, and is moved into her apartment. Hopefully I'll hear more tonight but it was an early day for her...Mom said they dropped her off at 5:45 this morning.

Hope everyone is having a good week so far!

Those shoes are really cute, I'll have to check them out, I'm always searching for a comfy park shoe!

I LOVE your new Vera, I'm really hoping I can get something in Plum Crazy before my trip...I don't want a hipster, since I have 3 now, I was hoping to get something I can use for a carry on bag on the plane, but they're all so expensive...maybe they'll have a sale in the next few weeks!

Those shoes look great! I hadn't heard of them, but I might have to go check them out too. I'm looking for a shoe I can wear comfortably at work all day. And if they work for the parks too, even better!

The bag is adorable!
