Oh my gosh, that is just perfect! Perfect! Perfect! I can not wait to give it to her! PMing you after this. Thank you so much! Love how Maddie has the poses down perfect. You were so quick, too! I don't know how you managed to keep your other trip a secret because I can't even make it from keeping this outfit a secret! Eep!!!

Love, love the Jessie outfit!!! It's perfect! And Maddie is destined to be a star
You are very talented, you should definitely open an Etsy shop! Though I bet us moms on the Dis could keep you busy LOL!
Looking forward to hearing the plans!

The Jessie outfit is the cutest...LOVE it...you're mondo-talented, girl! And, of course, Maddie's expert modeling just emphasized the outfit's perfection!

TOO CUTE!!!! Obviously we're big Lilo fans here , but if we were that big of Jessie fans, I'd hit you up for this, too!

Poor sewing fingers! You should really charge a ton for your work! You are amazing.

And now for the meal choices:

Signature and Celebrity Chef

Le Cellier, because I'm not a sports person...isn't it themed after some sports guy??



Character and Dinner Shows

Perfectly Princess Tea--We've never done this, and yes, CP is a MUST on every trip...but I know my girls would ADORE THIS!!!



Counter Service

Be Our Guest--A castle wins hands-down.



Table Service

Cape May Cafe--Beach Club smell. 'Nuf said.

Wow that Jessie costume is so adorable. And Maddie is obviously an excellent and adorable model!


Good thing you had a daughter otherwise you'd never have had all these opportunities to perfect your sewing lolol!

Looking forward to hearing the plans and seeing the American girl dress!

Wow, how adorable is that?!?! You did such an amazing job! You have one of the CUTEST daughters ever, and considering LilAnn's daughter is absolutely adorable as well, I think it's going to look wonderful on her!

Good to know that someone's been there! It looks like a place we'd be interested in if only they took DDP.

Get yourself to Via Napoli girl! It's delish!

And in 2011 we decided to go on a "once in a lifetime" family vacation to Disney World. Mike & I had both been in the past separately, dd had never been. It was going to be our one big hurrah, and well...here we are about to embark on our 3rd annual in a couple months!
Isn't it funny how that happens? Every year Bryan swears we're taking a year off.

I've eaten at each restaurant I voted for, but the only matchup where I've gone to both was BoG vs. Pop... and as much as I love Everything Pop, it ain't even close.
Thanks for playing!

I was actually tempted to vote for Everything POP because 1. it's an excellent food court and 2. I feel Be Our Guest will get very far (if not win) for table-service.

I love an underdog too Mel

I ate at Cape May Cafe and Via Napoli this past trip and Via Napoli wins by a mile!!!

Shula's gets my first vote. Ive eaten there 3x and it is excellent! The lighting is dark but thats at almost any steak house. The meat is excellent but my personal favorite part about it is the side dishes. They have some amazing side dishes and salads!

Crystal Palace is a no brainer for me! It is hands down my favorite restuarant in all of WDW. The location and characters are wonderful but it really has amazing food. The buffet never dissapoints!

I havent been to neither of the counter service places but I am gonna go with Be Our Guest just because its new and in the MK and Im sure Ill be going there next trip!

The last category is the hardest for me to pick. My family has been going to Cape May for years and it is usually where we go on the last night of our trips, its become a tradition for us. It doesn't have phonemal food but it is good and its never that busy which is nice. I have never been to Via Napoli but it is on the top of my list for my New Year's Eve trip next year! Guess I have to go Cape May though since its been a family favorite for a long time.
Welcome! Thanks so much for joining in and for playing! Bryan will be so happy that someone voted for his beloved Cape May!

Huh. Maybe we should check it out sometime! I do work at a restaurant bearing the name of another famous football coach though, so maybe I would feel like I was at work.

Cape May Cafe because we most definitely want to try it when we go back!

Can't wait to see the sewing pictures!

Hope you don't have too much snow!
If you like seafood you'll love Cape May-and any excuse to visit the Beach Club is nice.

Pics coming right up!

Counter Service: Be Our Guest (The best CS I've had at WDW!)

Table Service: Via Napoli (But if it were "best buffet" it would be Cape May by a land slide!)
When Bry found out that Via Napoli was squaring off against Cape May it was like Sophie's Choice. He agrees with you wholeheartedly.

The PPT looks so cute! I actually kicked around the idea of doing it this trip but ultimately nixed it.

Cali Grill had a bye in the first round. You didn't miss anything!

Here's my pick!

Le Cellier

Somehow, I don't want to go to Shula's even if they have great steaks. I want to stay as close as to disney as I can, and how closer can you get than Le Cellier!

Perfectly Princess Tea

My DGD and I did this last July and it was certainly a highlight for us! She loves her tea party, and while it was very difficult to wake her up to go, she certainly was thrilled by the party. And, the staff was so very accommodating to us, as the girls usually get apple juice. I had requested English Breakfast Tea for both of us! Since my DGD wants to do EVERYTHING she did again, I had to explain that this was a once experience. But, since we do like our hot tea, we may just have to have an afternoon tea at the GF some time. Certainly, every princess needs to attend this tea party once! Maddie absolutely MUST to go to the Perfectly Princess Tea!!!

Be Our Guest

Oh, another princess must dine experience!

Cape May Cafe

While I've not eaten at either, somehow, this appeals more to me!

Can't wait to see all the new outfits! Maddie is so fortunate to have such a talented and creative mom!

Karen
Cape May is great-you have to try it sometime!

I actually thought about the PPT this trip, but nixed it at the last minute. Now you've got me thinking...

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 Pretzel bread looks amazing to me too! Every time I see it I want to make an ADR! Via is really good-I think you'll enjoy it there. If only Epcot didn't have so darn many choices we'd be going back this trip too.

I love your comments! Keep 'em coming!

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!
Thanks for voting! If you want to PM me about anything specific that you'd like-feel free! I will say this though-I don't have an embroidery capable machine. Most birthday outfits I've seen are embroidery heavy. Let me know though!

I knew you'd love it Queen!

As a person with a Yachtsman ADR that's a relief to hear. I'm a steak snob myself
