Too bad because I would love to compete with your MIL to spend time with you!!!

I agree, I think if your in-laws want to tag along, 1/2 way into the trip would be a great idea. It's hard to stand firm on that if you really want some alone time.

I think Crystal Palace is a great dining option - especially staying in the park and if crowd levels are a 9 that would be good to plan.

You have a lot of my favorites for new options. Teppan Edo, Yak & Yeti, and 50's PT Cafe is tops on my list.

I'm looking forward to anticipating this trip with you!!
NOO!!!! March is SO much better!! I can offer two ADORABLE little girls that are fairly well behaved!

I know… you kinda sealed the deal for 50's with the option of the kid's plate for me! haha. But I want to see if H&V adds Sofia or Doc McStuffins to their line up before I commit! I'll probably book both (one breakfast and one lunch) and then cancel one closer to the trip.

I'm here!

Thanks so much for the heads up!

Congrats on having a new trip to plan for! What do the girls think? I know I just feel lost if I don't have Disney to plan for, even if it's not for some time.

And what a riot that you and Jen are there a week apart. Maybe I should schedule right between you guys and catch both of you!

I'm biting my nails over you going with the in-laws. I hope it works out great and you can appreciate having some help, including a nice date night along the way. I do think having them come half way though would be the best of both worlds.

Can't wait to hear more about your plans!

Nothing is set in stone yet… but I think we've got a good plan. But I won't lie and say that I'm not hopeful that it just won't work out for them…

And I would LOVE for you to come that week in between!

Anyway, Of course, I have no idea what the park hours are going to be yet, but Touring Plans does have their "predictions" up. This is what I'm looking at:

Date/ Crowd prediction/ Best park/ Worse Park
Sun, March 9, 2014 7 out of 10 EP AK
Mon, March 10, 2014 8 out of 10 EP HS
Tue, March 11, 2014 7 out of 10 MK HS AK
Wed, March 12, 2014 8 out of 10 EP AK
Thu, March 13, 2014 9 out of 10 EP MK
Fri, March 14, 2014 9 out of 10 AK EP
Sat, March 15, 2014 9 out of 10 EP HS
Sun, March 16, 2014 8 out of 10 EP AK

I'm a little surprised at how Epcot heavy this is. I am POSITIVE this will change as time goes on, since it is likely that the Flower Garden Festival will be starting around this time. But I thought I would post it here, so I can come back and see how things have changed as we go! I really did think that the crowds would be lower, since this is the beginning of the college world spring breaks. But I'm hoping since it is college spring break, that there won't be terrible crowds during the day! Luckily, our school system follows the college schedule, since the majority of students have at least one parent that works at the university.
I have to be honest here. I simply don't believe these predictions I mean, I know there really isn't a "slow" time anymore and maybe I'm wrong. But this was the exact week we were there for our honeymoon (granted 6 years ago...omg, how crazy!), and I thought it was just moderate crowds. And, with Easter falling on April 20 next year, I just can't imagine mostly 8s and 9s. I know you hope I'm right and it may just be wishful thinking! I guess we'll see

Places we've been New places.

MK:
Cinderella's Royal table- We've been here before. We enjoyed it, but it's a little spendy. I know both of the girls would enjoy it. If Corey's parents came, it would be an iconic "Disney" experience. It's been forever but I think the experience is so cool. I want to try breakfast here one day because I hear that food is actually good, right? Did you guys go here in November? I also could see Nancy being thrilled to have done this!
Crystal Palace-We have never been here. I know Catie would like Pooh- but is she ready for characters? Again, I hear breakfast is better food-wise. Jennifer and her family love it. I always wanted to eat here when I was little; probably because it was right off Main Street. But since Catie may or may not like it, there's always next time if she does warm up to them.

EPCOT
Teppan Edo- I have heard LOTS of good reviews on this place. Before, we had lots of chinese/Japanese options, so I didn't feel like it was a contender. NOW, we live in the middle of now where and there aren't ANY good asian places. You know Brian LOVES it here. I do like the food, but it's just hibachi. But like you said, if you can't do this at home now...maybe? I bet the girls would love the show.
Coral Reef- I think this would be a lot of fun for the girls. They LOVE looking at fishies! We went to the Aquarium Restaurant in Nashville and they LOVED it. Catie DOWNED some calamari while we were there! Again, I liked the atmosphere, knowing there would be a million kids. Not sure the food is worth it, but I do think the girls would have a blast.
Le Ceiller- I think this goes without saying… DO IT!!!
Garden Grove- Maybe??!!? It would be a good character meal option over there… Meh. Nothing about this restaurant has ever tempted me to even consider it.
Akershus- We did breakfast last year, an we were NOT impressed. But we LOVED the character interaction. Maybe dinner or lunch?? Of course, I say if you're going to do CRT, scratch this one - especially if the food was bad. I know it's a different experience, but it's close enough.
Rose and Crown- Corey's parents would like this. They are always looking for a good english/pub like place. We LOVED R&C. Besides the glorious bread pudding at Raglan Road, we liked this so much better. And if you could sit out on the terrace...perfection!

Hollywood Studios
Hollywood and Vine- A solid breakfast option AND if we can get a pre-opening ressie, then DUH! Hello TSM Fastpass! As a near-30 year old without kids...I have no intention of ever going here. But I get why you would.
50's Primetime Cafe- This just looks like a fun place to go. Again, never been and not appealing to me...would the girls "get" it?

Animal Kingdom
Tusker House- I'm fairly certain Corey would veto this whole trip if we didn't go to Tusker House. But there are other places that I would like to try here! Don't fix what ain't broke!
Yak and Yeti- Again. No local good asian options. We hated the CS, but TS pics don't look too bad.
Rainforest Cafe- I just wanna try this place! I know they have one at DTD, so that may also be an option… We weren't impressed...but I'm sure Cortlyn would love. Would Catie be okay with the noise?

OMG...blonde hair and plus 15 pounds! AHHHHH!!! It burns my eyes!!!

Oh how I hope this works! For anyone else reading, Christen knows this is only about 50/50 right now. Emotionally, I'm about 90% committed. Practically, we're at about 45%. My husband is starting his sophomore year of college in the fall. I'm working full-time but he hasn't been able to find anything part-time. So money is TIGHT. On top of that, he's considering applying for Disney's College Program, probably for Fall 2014. If he does that and is accepted, we would be moving to either California (his preference) or Orlando just a few months after this trip. So, not sure a vacation would be the best idea.

As an alternative, I've considered this: My grandmother has a second home in Daytona that we might could use this week (which happens to also be Brian's spring break!) We could either go into Orlando for one day without needing a hotel or stay at a value for 2-3 nights and bookend the trip with her Daytona home. But that poses the question about tickets vs. APs. The possibilities are endless, really. And then I had the thought of surprising Brian with all of this! I just don't know!!! Unfortunately, I won't have a clearer picture of our situation until the end of this year. And even if Brian does apply for the CP in January, we may not know if he's been accepted until March or April. And what if he doesn't get accepted?!?! Ahhh!

I'm kinda like you! I just can't believe it will REALLY be that crowded! Plus, the crowd predictions in November were like this, and I honestly didn't feel like it was THAT bad!

Oh and I loved everything you said about the ADR's!

I'm really really REALLY hoping it works out for you to come and see us for a few days!! We just don't see you guys enough!!!!!!!!! I can't wait to start making my real plans and making ADR's for SIX instead of FOUR!

So, I'm hearing some rumors about the rates for 2014 packages coming out- as early as NEXT WEEK!!!! That would be AWESOME! I could feel like I could REALLY start planning, you know?!?!?

I just checked and we have about $60-ish in reward points on our Disney Visa. Not much, but that's just been since our Nov trip (since I cashed it out for that trip!). I hope we'll add another $60-ish or so, and then that can be our "tip" money for our TS meals.

(I love this smilie, but goodness… he doesn't have to look so GRUMPY!) I've been talking to Corey about getting a little part time job… It's hard because I really need the flexibility to deal with some family issues back home (I'm the POA for my grandfather who is in a nursing home in GA) but I want to do SOMETHING to earn a little extra cash for the trip! He doesn't mind if I work, but he also doesn't want me to stress myself out… I mentioned possibly doing a few early shifts at Starbucks and he laughed at me- I'm NOT a morning person, BUT I think if I could do that before he had to go to work in the morning, we wouldn't have to pay for childcare. He doesn't necessarily like that idea, but I'm playing around with it… we're a college town. I'm sure the college students HATE that shift, so I'd think it would be an easy shift to pick up 3 days a week or so?? I dunno… we'll see. I can sew, but I'm not sure if I could do enough sewing to actually MAKE real money plus, I don't have an area that I could dedicate to that. I don't really want to deal with other kids, so home daycare is out…

I'm with you on hoping that the 2014 packages prices come out soon! I booked our 2013 vacation on July 11, 2012 and I believe they came out early that year. Maybe they'll post them early again.

The Starbucks job idea sounds like a good one. Like you said, in a college town, I'm betting a lot of college students wouldn't want to take that early morning shift.

It's hard to really plan without the numbers! Like I want to be able to start planning out what we can do with the budget I have in mind!

We'll see how it goes with the job thing… Kicking the idea around…

Well, if you are going to get a job of some kind, especially part-time, I would think now is the time. Students are traveling, graduated, etc., right? And it's like I've told Brian, if you hate it - quit! Not really a big deal.

Hey Christen! You have a fan following here... you are going to have to start a waiting list to have folks vacation with you and your lovely family. You're funny about the trip timing!!

I think you have sound logic for the Starbucks job. Sounds like it is worth a try. At the end of the day you could walk away if it doesn't work out.

But this is all the more reason for you to change your plans and come along with me!

I hear wedding bells!!!!!!!

Okay, well not MY wedding bells, but for my Nephew and his Girlfriend!!!!!!



We LOVE these two crazy kids and the fact that they are finally getting hitched is just too much excitement! They've been dating for several years (started dating right as they finished high school) and it was one of those "if you break up with HER we are keeping HER in the family" type situations! We LOVE her.

So, talking to my SIL about it this morning I gave her some info about next year- thinking that they would be waiting until he was finished with school (She took a year off to do a year long mission trip after high school) in the spring before they got married. My SIL informed me that they are thinking EARLY MARCH. Okaaaay… well, they haven't SET a date yet, but it does seem like they are trying to line it up with their spring break. Which makes sense, since they are still in school. Only problem is their SB doesn't line up with OUR SB. So…. if they got married on Mar 1, then, Corey would struggle to go, because he already has a concert scheduled for March 2 at EIU. This doesn't eat into any of our trip, but it does make two back to back LONG drives for my girls.

However. We are still REALLY excited for their wedding and cannot WAIT to see what they start planning for it!!!! And somehow, someway, we will make it work!

So, I was just minding my own business wasting far too much time on Facebook, when I saw this pop up in my feed from the Touringplans peeps& I probably should not have watched it! I think this is so beautiful and I just LOVE the way they increased the bathroom- with a pocket door even! (I am a sucker for a pocket door!)

July 10th… we're on the count down to the FIRST part of the planning of the trip! Of course, we have several other dates to look forward to over the next few months, I'm happy to know that I'll be on my way to booking the trip in a few short weeks!

I think I'm going to just book a room at ASSp, but also quote Pop and POR. I'd like to know what my other options are… Perhaps I can convince Corey that we should upgrade! Or that since Pop is closer it would be a better choice. We'll see how it goes. I'm going to wait to book my MIL's room until I'm sure that they are going. No reason to book anything if they aren't sure.

Cortlyn had dance class tonight and it's always nice to chat with the moms there. One of the moms I've known for a while, since our daughters have been in the same class all year. Another mom I only met recently, since her daughter's summer class overlaps. Well my friend and I were talking about Disney (cause she's a fan, too!) and the new mom-friend mentioned something and come to find out, she is a kindred spirit as well! I just KNEW she would be a good friend! Turns out that she had been in the College Program several years ago as a lifeguard at the Beach and Yacht club! Isn't it crazy that I was sitting there wondering if I should ask what her Dis name is???
