My husband and I went to Bluezoo last September. I loved it; my husband was more meh about it but I think he was just being stubborn because he had been "dreading" it because he thought he wouldn't find anything to eat because he doesn't like fish. He likes shellfish and there are non-fish options, but I think he just decided to be a big baby about it!

Anyway, we went at night and it struck me as
Very dark and very full of adults probably because Dolphin always has conventions going on. But the food was great as far as I was concerned!

Make sure you check out the POR resort thread if you haven't already. They have some amazing info on the resort and rooms an how to send in your room request fax 3-5 days prior to check in. I followed their advice and it worked! Also portorleans.org is an amazing site. Having just returned from an 8 night stay I have to say the royal guest rooms are amazing!! Best themed room in Disney and so worth the bus hassle!!!

Love the AG dress!!!

Hey guys! I'm sorry that I should have left a better hint for the Guess My ADR Game.

Day 2 is our only full DHS day, and we have 3 ADR. Anyone who's already guessed can feel free to change your guesses!

I'll comment on everything else later, but they're killing me right now! With the Illini this year, you just never know which team is going to show up.

At least the national media has caught on to the strength of the Big Ten this year, they're saying 7 or 8 teams will go to the dance

Your plans for the first day sound great! I don't even remember what I guessed, but it's so funny that only one person got it right! Good job Daisy.

Wow, look at Maddie being all big and bad! She's a riding machine!

My ADR guesses for day two are... Hollywood and Vine, Mama Melrose, and Yachtsman.

My votes for the next round are for Artist Point, Cinderella's Royal Table, Sunshine Seasons, and Biergarten.

AMAZING job on the doll dress! Love it!

I am SOOOOOOO excited for these Lilo dresses!
I'm not letting the girls see the AGD princess dress because they will be demanding them! BEAUTIFUL! Great job!
I love that Maddie is wanting to ride some things this go-round. My girls actually seem to be getting MORE scared of things. They've done HM in the past, but seem to be shying away from it when we discuss it. We'll see how that will play out.
And here are my restaurant choices for this round:

Signature/Celebrity Chef

Todd English's Bluzoo--I like seafood, and I hear this is a great, classy seafood place.

Character/Dinner Show

Les Chefs de France--Remember the CATASTROPHE from my TR?! Can't vote for CRT after that one .

Counter Service

Sunshine Seasons--I love sitting here while waiting for baby swap at Soarin'. Plus, I actually kind of hate Captain Cook's. You'll hear about that later in the TR once we swap resorts.

Table Service

Rose and Crown--Three summers spent in London enjoying the pubs. This is familiar.

I am enjoying this game so much! I love seeing how well-organized it is! You know me and my organization!
Jennifer and Brandon, 2 Princesses and a PrinceSept. '09 (Pop), April/May '10 (Pop/CBR), Sept. '11 (Pop), Sept. '12 (CBR/Poly!), Sept. '13 (ASMo), Sept. '14 (POR/Beach Club)

Artist Point because I've never heard of the other
Cinderella's Royal Table ~ can't wait to go back in 4 weeks
Sunshine Seasons
Rose and Crown ~ most likely to try this over Biergarten

As for checking in/checking out. We had to do that in 09. There were at least 3 families that I was with that had to do this, maybe 4 and we all stayed in the room we first occupied. If my memory serves me correctly, they told me upon initial check-in that I wouldn't be moving so at least you'll know ahead of time and if you do have to check out, you can let Maddie and Bryan sleep a little bit before doing the check out/check in. I've never quite understood why they'd make you switch rooms anyway. Why can't the new guests just have the room you were supposed to get on Saturday, rather than have you switch? My guess is they don't guarantee it because they pretty much don't guarantee anything really...except a GREAT TIME!

That would be so nice of you! I can NOT sew, not even just a straight line. The sewing section of Home Economics is the only thing I ever came close to failing in high school, and the only reasons I didn't fail is my friend did half the work and my teacher must have taken pity of me.

Artist's Point
Cinderella's Royal Table
Sunshine Seasons
Rose & Crown

Day 2 ADRs:
Hollywood & Vine
Mama Melrose
Yachtsman Steakhouse

ETA. In my tiredness I forgot to say that you might want to keep an eye out for wait times for Enchanted Tales With Belle and Merida. From what I've read lately, wait times for ETWB juped really high less than 30 minutes after park opening, while Merida wait time is more reasonable than in the past. If it were me I would wait to do ETWB until you can be there at Rope Drop. Even more so since you'll be there in July and a big part of the line is outside in the blazing sun.
