Whoa, the clothes you make are amazing. You are very talented, Maddie is a lucky girl.

I love the dress she was wearing on Easter Sunday and the long dress she is wearing later in your post.

My Mum has seen those short princess dresses on the US Disney Store site and thinks I should buy the Snow White one this year. Seeing the Aurora dress makes me think she is right!

Speaking of Snow White, what Katt did for you was awesome and so generous. If you don't mind, I am going to borrow the Snow White clip. My eldest is called Madison and I think she would love to see that message. I hope this is ok?

Great plans and I love how most everything Maddie has is Disney!

I love this! I've seen a few maxi dresses in various kids stores lately and was thinking about whether I liked the style for the just-older-than-toddler set (Adison is newly-age-5) and this picture has tipped me over the edge into the "dying to buy one for my own daughter" category. It looks adorable on Maddy!

By the way, is her name Madeline/Madelyn or Madison? Or is Maddy her given name? Just wondering!

Oh and I love the easter basket! We do every holiday up big too..when you have just 1 darling princess daughter, it is easy to go a little overboard! I don't call it spoiled, though, I call it getting everything she deserves

LOVE the Easter pics and the Maddie model photo shoot!!

We hide/hunt a ton of easter eggs too!! We started many many years ago filling the eggs up with all the lose change that DH throws in a basket every day - it was a way for our boys to count some money!!

We're in the process of packing our house up to move, so my sister hosted Easter this year and we both filled up eggs and hid them all at her house..

my boys had $28-$30 EACH in their eggs and b/c we kept telling my boys to let their cousin Rileigh get the eggs (she's not quite 5 yet and my boys are 11 and 13 1/2) she ended up with almost $40 in her eggs!!

YIKES!!

OK..back to the PTR!! My choices:

In the Signature/Celebrity Chef Category
6. Narcoossees - never eaten here but it's on my list!!

The Character/Dinner Show region features
6. Hoop Dee Doo Revue - our very first dinner on our very first day of our very first trip - the best show!!!!


The Table Service battle is
11. Whispering Canyon Cafe - I just LOVE this place...but then again we LOVE the WL!!!


and the Counter Service Region pits
6. Earl of Sandwich - SUCH a great place and fabulous sammies!!!

My next round of guesses:

Signature/Celebrity Chef - Narcoossees (I'd love to try this place!)
Character/Dinner Show - Hoop De Doo Revue
Table Service - Sci Fi Dine In
Counter Service - Landscape of Flavors (The menus look really interesting here!)

I also need to get my guess in for Day 3 ADR's... but I haven't decided yet! I'm giving myself a deadline of tomorrow evening.

So excited to see you are taking another trip. I still need to finish reading the last one but am excited to read about the new one as well.

Your whole conversation with Bryan cracked me up big time. Crap is anti value too, and we have never stayed in a value at WDW yet. He is in Boston right now. When we were Facetiming 2 days ago, he informed me that he just found out he has another week of vacation for 2013 (he did not know he was getting). My wheels starting turning. Can I add a week at WDW to our weekend at Dl this October? I ran the numbers and determined it would be possible if we do the regular dining plan as opposed to the deluxe and stay at AoA. He said we will talk about it when he gets back, but I am hoping. The only problem is we can only afford the mermaid rooms, and you know how he feels about girlie things for the boys. I am hoping it works out. Maybe I can find a way to try at least one night in the Cars room (more than double the mermaid price).

I am really excited to read about your thoughts on the resort whether we go or not. It looks really nice. After our transportation issues at GF last time, I doubt the value would be any worse.

The Royal room at Port Orleans is quite nice. The tips you mentioned from the AoA thread scared me a bit, so I will have to read into them before Crap returns.

Although I was too late to play the ADR game, I am happy to report that I got a lot right. You have some great ADRs.

I love the items you bought, especially the Aurora dress. I cannot wait to see Maddie in it.

Oh my gosh, I missed a whole voting period, please forgive me! In my defense I hosted easter at my house with 22 people and my oldest was in France and Italy over spring break with the French club from school and I was a little bit on edge those entire 10 days!!!!! First and foremost my votes for 6: Signature- Wolfgang Puck Character- Hoop Dee Doo Revue Table- Sci-fi Dine-In and Counter- Earl of Sandwich.
I love the fashion show from Maddie, so super cute! the pink sparkly skirt turned out great! And I love love love your wine glasses and fiesta ware in your kitchen, beautiful house!!!!!
I would suggest doing the Animation class with Maddie but bring a pencil with an eraser, my middle child was six on the last trip and is a great artist but a perfectionist and was upset by the end because they give you one piece of paper and a pencil with no eraser, we will do this again and I will bring pencils with erasers and possibly extra paper!
My kid's easter baskets used to look like Maddies', I scaled down the past two years, I set a budget and buy things they can use not junk from the dollar store (they get plenty of that from the grandparents!) I usually buy a dvd, clothes, fave candy and jewelry or hair accesories!
