OUCH!


If I recall correctly, you need to have at least 6 months left on your passport to get to the US. Sorry it was such an expensive exercise for your ex.

I too would love a Caroline doll from American Girl

PIO - I think certain countries (including Aus & NZ) don't have the 6 month minimum time on passport requirement. However I am not inclined to test this out so will make sure all ours have more than the 6 months left ( DH & DS need new ones )

I noticed that over on the September/October thread everybody is popping up their ADRs. Since I am sitting here at work waiting for a long job to finish, I will pop ours up now too. In 2011 we had free dining - so we ate everywhere, this time no free dining so we don't have quite as many on-site plans. So here they are:

T-Rex dinner - we loved it so much last time that it's our first and last night's dinner (we are complete suckers for a theme)
Be Our Guest dinner
Akershus breakfast - another one that we loved last time
Sci-Fi lunch - another repeat
Raglan Road dinner - new
Sanaa dinner - new
ESPN (DH & DS15 watching the Champions League Final)
Garden View Tea Room (with DD8 as we don't want to watch the soccer!)
'Ohana dinner - DH would go every night if he could - a favourite from last time
Wishes Dessert Party - new - I can't think of any other way to have spent that $86 that was burning a hole in my pocket
Crystal Palace breakfast - DH's birthday request

We also will have a car for our second week and plan to head out of the "bubble" for a few breakfasts and dinners on our way here and there. Various people have recommended a few places: Texas de Brazil, Golden Corral, Keke's, Cheesecake Factory, Waffle House, we'll see how we go.

How are we going to eat all of this food? We also have the Riverside Mill Food Court at Port Orleans for when we get hungry

Although the dining isn't quite as exciting at Disneyland, we've booked Minnie's for breakfast and Goofys for dinner, both with the friends. Then we'll book Surfs Up one morning in the 2nd week.
I've also got so many other places I want to eat, I don't think I'll fit them in.
One is definately The Cheesecake Factory. I also like the idea of Bubba Gumps.
I'm a bit jealous that you've got so many great ADR's but glad I didn't have to stress over it all!!

Hi Shaz!

I actually thought that the Minnie's breakfast in Disneyland was better than any of the ones that we did in WDW. There were so many characters - Captain Hook, the Fairy Godmother, Chip and Dale, Rafiki, plus all of the Pooh characters and Minnie - and more that I can't remember off the top of my head. It was at that breakfast that my DH was absolutely bitten by the Disney bug - HOORAY!!!!

We didn't eat at Goofy's, but we stayed at the Paradise Pier and ate dinner in the PCH Grill which is where the surf's up breakfast is held - and the food was fab!!

We also ate at the Cheesecake Factory in Las Vegas (we ate too much and didn't have room for cheesecake ), and our dinner with friends at Bubba Gump in Times Square is a night that we will always remember - in fact we are taking SIL there for her birthday this time!! I know that it's touristy to eat at the chain places - but there is nothing here like them here and our whole family end up VERY happy.

PS - no dining is ever boring when you get to let somebody else clean up after you!!!

Those ADRs look great.

I think I must be far too preoccupied with food as I'm really enjoying reading about everyone's restaurant bookings. :-)

Nice set of ADRs. Between that, POR and offsite, I sure hope you're growing a second stomach!
