You eat with your eyes first don't you? 'Ohana 5/1

Hi everyone! This review WILL HAVE PHOTOS and LOTS of them!!! I will also do as much "live" updating as I can

I have been absent for quite some time in both Disney World and the real world! I have been busy fighting, and beating, cancer and all that goes along with it! I knew that once I was on the path to recovery/maintenance that we would be going to WDW no matter what! So I booked the trip last November for April 18-27, 2014 knowing that I would have completed my first 12 rounds of chemo and would be due a "break". I did not start planning anything else, including ADRs, until after the 1st of the year because I was in and out of the hospital so much I will post next to my ADRs when I booked them so you can see how much of a "short notice" most of my ADRs were booked with! This trip also has a few family reunions thrown in the mix. I am from Florida (born and raised for 23 years) and still have quite a bit of family down there. Most of them haven't seen me since I was diagnosed with my cancer, so I can't wait to let them all see just how well I am doing! This trip includes myself (I'm a Pescatarian), my DM(will be eating low sugar and low salt), DD19(eats EVERYTHING and ANYTHING), DD11(is allergic to tree nuts and shellfish) the entire time. At some ADRs there are 8 and 6 of us, then some with just the 4 of us. I will note this next to the ADR list as well. DH could not make this trip as he is in Afghanistan again with his job (retired US Navy, now a contractor). So without further adieu....my list of ADRs is next....

First of all congratulations to you for taking on cancer, fighting it and getting well! You have such a positive attitude and seem so strong, I love it!!

Second of all, have a wonderful, well deserved vacation! I'm interested to see which DTD restaurant you end up at, and all of your reviews. My DS9 is also allergic to tree nuts and shellfish and we're going to a couple of the same places as you, on our July trip.

Wishing you a safe trip, and some fun times reconnecting with family!
