Signature and Celebrity Chef

Le Cellier
(even as a vegetarian, I want to eat here at some point because that dang pretzel bread calls my name every time I see a picture of it!)

Character and Dinner Shows

Crystal Palace. I would love to take dd to the PPT also, but CP wins this one because it's an old standby and I feel like it's one of those universally acceptable character meals for families that have girls and boys.

Counter Service

Everything POP. Another old standby for us! BOG looks amazing and perfect and beautiful, but EP has Mickey waffles for breakfast. Sorry, Belle, but it's tough to hold a candle to that, even with all of your over the top theming lol

Table Service

Via Napoli. I actually have not eaten here, but it looks amazing and I am really looking forward to our ADR for lunch in just a couple months! I have eaten at CMC for breakfast and it was great, no problems, but I feel like you can go to Chef Mickey and get the same food and the same characters, so it's not a stand out "must do again immediately" type of place. That said, we are going to dinner one night at CMC in May, so all of this could change! lol

PS as you can see I go off on tangents and have many comments, if that's too much for you to handle when tallying up all of the votes let me know and I will keep it down! hehe

The bracket looks awesome! Go hubby! Love this game!

My picks are:
LeCellier, it hasbeen getting some pretty mixed reviews but I love it, to be fair I've never been to Shulas but have heard some great things!

Crystal Palace, I love CP, it was one of the first Disney places I remember eating at and I have always loved Winne the Pooh! We are having DDs birthday breakfast there in May

Be Our Guest, it's beautiful, haven't been yet but really it has to be chosen

Via Napoli!! Yummmmm!

I am looking forward to dining at all 4 in a couple months

PS I didn't get the PM, no biggie though I totally understand everyone is busy! I just loved Maddies dress and the couple skirts I saw you made for someone daughter on their TR!! I've been looking for some kind of birthday shirt or outfit for Ava's 2nd bday!

seriously...the flow chart.....AMAZING!!!

Have never eaten at Shula's but my sister and her hubby did on their anniversary trip and my BIL is a steak enthusiast! He said he preferred the Yachtsman to Shula's! Now don't get me wrong, it was good apparently, just not as good as Yachtsman!

The One with the Sewing Part 2

Hey Guys! I'll be closing the voting on this round of the Tournament of Food and the Guess My ADR Game on Thursday. At that time I'll also (finally) start telling you about our plans for the trip! On Thursday I'll let you know what we're doing and where we're eating Day 0 and Day 1.

I'm hoping to get some replies done, but of course I'm a currently a slave to my sewing machine. The princess feels that she's waited long enough for her American Girl to get some Disney Princess dresses, and I'm almost done with one. I'll share pics of that on Thursday too.

I did however want to share some of what I have finished. After I posted the pictures of the Lilo dress that I made I received a message from another DISer LilAnn whose daughter is a MAJOR Jessie fan. They're making a trip to WDW this May, and LilAnn was hoping that I could create a warm weather friendly Jessie outfit for them. She gave me a lot of creative license, so I'm really hoping that she (and all of you of course!) like what I came up with. So, without further ado, here's my version of Jessie (and Maddie's version of a photo shoot)

And this one was to illustrate the matching hair bow that I made

I promise more updates soon! Thanks for sticking with me!

So I havenít been paying much attention with the tournament of food stuff, but Iím still going to give you my input lol.

LE CELLIER!! Seriously one of my favorite places to eat!

Crystal Palace wins my vote, I know you guys didnít really have a great experience last time but its such a classic!

AHAHAHAHAH I donít even know why BOG and Popís foodcourt are in the same bracket there!?WHAT?! NO, there is no thinking, BOG is too beautiful to not eat at, itís absolutely amazing and beautiful and has a great menu, including the kids food, Paige and I both ate off the kids menu and itís delicious!

Your sewings coming along fantastic! I love the dresses/outfits, and I love that theyíre different characters you donít see all over the place!! Yay!! Maddieís photo shoots are adorable!!

P.S. when we were going through Paige's photo's we couldn't find the video from Belle! I don't know how it got lost, but we're down one vid...boourns!
