We have 57 days left until our trip, yay yay yay,,,myself, DH, DD10, DD7, and DD turning 5 while we're there,,,,yay again. I've worked my buns off trying to get things just right, but we're not Disney Pros quite yet. I've been a handful of times, this will be DH's second time, and I just want to make sure I haven't missed any obvious ways to make our trip even more enjoyable. So any critiques would be awesome!!!

Just want to add, we are big sit down eaters, I'm pretty sure we all have some type of mutant metabolism,,,we LOVE princesses in our house, and we're all terrible night owls who don't require much sleep. So,,,yay,,,,give me some ideas!!!!

Day 6

I think you have lots of good choices. I have nothing different to suggest. I am glad to see that you are doing Akershus and also CRT for both breakfast and dinner. We enjoy lots of princess meals with our dds too! I hope you enjoy the dessert party; I've been curious about that one for a long time!

I think I was most excited to get the dessert party. I was on the fence about wether or not I wanted to add it, but something about having to wait for those reservations to open up just sucked me in! The thrill of the chase,,,and a room full of desserts, was too much to resist!

Also, our oldest DD is 10 so this will probably be the last year to see her still have that "little girl" experience at Disney!

You can take the boat to DTD and have lunch at Wolfgang Puck Express - Marketplace or Earl of Sandwich. And then stop by Goofy's Candy Co. to have a custom made treat/snack!

I'm not sure if you'll have much room for the Dessert Party after doing Citrico's at 6:00. We've done the party before, and we've found that it works much better to have a light counter service meal early enough that we're hungry again by the time the party rolls around. That way we can do the buffet justice!

I think we'll be a little stuffed also, but I'm a little afraid to move that reservation earlier because of nap time, and I'm a little hesitant to use a dining credit for counter service. I think we may just end up going to bed with overfilled tummies that night! Lol Maybe we'll get lucky and get into dinner a little earlier and try to walk of some of it before
