Sounds like a great day of experiences planned. I sure hope you don't get "I told you so" at Via Napoli.

Joining in on this one a little late. Sounds like a great plan all the way around.

We have had enough rain in the last few days to last a long time. Most of the time it is brief rain and thats it.

Hi Ed! Glad you joined in. I sure hope we don't get the kind of rain you are getting right now! So far the forecast looks pretty good through Wednesday. It's supposed to be a little cooler on the wedding day but no rain.

Friday, February 14, 2014 Mom's Christmas Present

Every time we plan a trip to Disney, Mom mentions wanting to eat in the castle. But three trips later and we still hadnít planned a meal at CRT because she always defers to what everyone else wants. A few months before Christmas, I was trying to decide what to get her for Christmas so on a whim, I checked to see if there were any breakfast ADRs for Friday. I did not expect to find anything but was totally shocked to see an 8:35 am opening. So of course I snagged it!

My next problem was how to ďgiveĒ it to her for Christmas. I do some dabbling in scrapbooking so I decided to make her an invitation from Cinderella. Hereís the final product.

Front:



Inside:





I had planned to use the gold lettering though the whole thing but seriously underestimated the number of packs I would need. Plus when started making the card, I realized there were no numbers in the gold pack. Duh, didnít think that one through too well, did I? At least I had the pink letters as backup.

I didnít get to go home this year for Christmas but did watch Mom open the card through Facetime. She is so excited to finally eat there! We have spent a lot of time discussing the various princesses we will meet and also deciding on what we will wear for our picture with Cinderella. Mom wants a nice one to hopefully frame.

So once again we will be headed back to MK for our fairytale breakfast.



And we will also get to see Main Street with very few people on it! Iím hoping to get to the gates a little early so we can take our time and get some photos along the way.

After breakfast, we will finally be meeting up with Morgan and her gang for some time together! Steveís family is leaving on Thursday so Morgan wonít be tied up with them. Iím not sure what we will do but it will probably consist of rides like Dumbo:



Or maybe the Barnstormer:



Maybe we will even meet some characters with the kids:



Sometime during the morning, the kids have an appointment at the Pirates League so Mom and I will be joining them to watch how that all works.

I think we will probably eat lunch with them somewhere and then they will be heading out. They fly home that night but Mom and I are staying one more night.

We will be on our own again for the afternoon and will figure out what we want to as we go. Maybe some resort hopping? I really want to visit AOA and Mom loves the GF and Poly.



Dinner this night is at the Captainís Grille at the Yacht Club at 6:35 pm.



Iím hoping to get there a little early as the Yacht Club is one of the only Deluxe Resorts I havenít visited. Iíve read both good and bad about this restaurant but the menu sounds delicious and both Mom and I love seafood. I hope we love it!

Epcot is open until 11 pm so maybe after dinner we will spend some time in Wolrd Showcase. We talk every time about all the drinks we are going to try and then never do. Maybe this year we will get some of those in.

We could also head back to MK for some late night fun as it's open until 1 am.

Up Next: Saturday, February 15, 2014 Departure Day

Awesome, awesome, awesome Christmas gift for your Mom!!!! Love it!

They let all "before park opening" adrs into MK at the same time, so you will have pleanty of time to meander up Main Street and get some pictures... THere are usually several Photopass photographers lined up to get your photos as well.

Your day sounds perfect!!!

Ok - is your ticker off? It says 5 days... I think you leave sooner?

The alone time with your mom sounds like it will be great! Can't wait to hear about the Keys to the Kingdom Tour. I hope Via Napoli turns out to be a good choice for the both of you And it sounds like breakfast at CRT will be a very special experience for the 2 of you!

What an awesome Christmas present to give your mom. And that card you made is fantastic. That would have been such a kick to experience her reaction when you gave it to her.

Dan and I did the KTTK tour and it was fantastic! We had a guide that was hilarious and had been with Disney a very long time. You will love it!

The CRT surprise for your mother was perfect!! I'm sure she was beyond excited. I so wish one of my girls loved Disney. I would love a mother daughter(s) trip. But they are not fans. Enjoy every minute. This is my last post since I leave tomorrow morning, so I want to wish you a fantastic trip, wedding and weather. Hope to catch you sometime.

see I told you this morning the weather is/will be glorious and Ed just guaranteed it and since I won't be staying at WDW when you're here that's even more of a guarantee it ALWAYS rains when I do !

Our flight today was cancelled due to Atlanta weather. I hope you're doing alright and that it isn't impacting you too much! We're booked on a nonstop to Orlando later today, but our weather has started acting up pretty badly, so not sure that's going to happen either. I really hope the weather clears up for your trip in a few days!
