Exciting! The ADR decisions are upon you. This is such a fun part of the waiting time.

My ds loved the Sandcastle Club. He's gone there for years. Last year he was 12 and still asked to go several night. Lots of good video games!


Dee - We are doing Captain's Grill too. I always found Rose and Crown and Via Napoli two of the more reasonable ts restaurants. I think we're going to try Ragland Road this year for the first time. A few years ago we only used TIW and found it did save us money and we felt more free to order things like two appetizers instead of an entree or a soup, appetizer and dessert etc. I do like the "pre-pay" aspect of DDP so what I'm doing is buying Disney gift cards so I'll feel like it's pre-paid. I always do that and then just apply them to our room charges every few days. So sorry we're going to miss each other AGAIN this year!

Boy if I had won the powerball that would have been one heck of a Dis Meet!

Thanks. It was very scary. Winds like a hurricane and crazy hail. Then the sun came out.

I've seen some pictures from Epcot and Universal. Looks like it was wild.

This week has been a killer. Had to have major dental work done. The chemo really did a job on my teeth (bone loss). We got hit with $2500 worth of work. DH is self employed and we pay our own health insurance- to the tune of $1200 a month so no dental insurance.

I told DH we could switch to the Dolphin (boo hoo) as I qualify for the Teacher rate and we could save $1100. Thankfully he said no! I decided not to do the DDP and just use our TIW card. I think I'll drop some of the more expensive buffets like the Princess Story Book breakfast ($240 for the 5 of us since kids are Disney "adults") and Cape May Buffet (another $240). We'll just do a few more cs and a few less ts!

No CL this year, No DDP, darn why couldn't I have just hit that powerball! I almost had a heart attack this morning when I heard someone from New Jersey won. Sadly, no one in my family.

SO happy we didn't have to change, although I think the Dolphin was the next best thing. Definitely preferred it to POR or a DTD resort.
Hi Robyn, sorry to hear you are having a bad time lately. It sounds like you've made some good compromises by staying where you love, and having some cheaper meals. You've done some of the fancier restaurants, so I'm sure you will be happy with the other places you choose to eat at.

We love Raglan Road. It is a nice atmosphere with good food. It has become one of our must do on every trip. I hope you enjoy it.

That is too close for comfort! Glad you are okay and happy you are staying safe with Jeanne at your side.

Maybe others can give more info on Sandcastle Club.

We will be using Sandcastle Club in a few weeks though and they are looking forward to it. I'll give a review when were back!

So sorry about all your difficulties. I agree, those buffets can really add up. We have gone without the DDP the past couple of trips, and found we like it better. And there are plenty of cheaper TS around. Kona Cafe, Be Our Guest 9if you can get in, lol), 50's, Sci Fi, Biertgarten, even Brown Derby- we have the Cobb Salad for lunch, and Grapefruit cake And B&C!!! There are also some very good CS in Epcot, MK, & AK.
We enjoyed our meal at Raglan Road. Cooks of Dublin also had some really good fish & chips.

We also get gift cards, and use them for dining. It's just like having the DDP!
