    I really enjoy trying new places, too. Out of our three ADRs, only one of them is new, but Aaron really wanted his parents to experience RC and CRT because we love them so much. Those are the only sit down places we've been to at WDW so far. We'll be trying Crystal Palace for the first time this trip, though! I can't wait to hear what you think of the places you're trying!

    I would like to try CP on one of our trips. I initially thought we would this trip but decided two breakfasts were enough. :thumbsup2

    We are approaching leaving day!! I wanted to ask all you still reading my PTR if there is anything you want someone to scout out for you while I am down there? I will be checking out the FL expansion, of course and MNSSHP, but are there any specific questions?

    I will also be occasionally posting updates and pictures to Facebook during our trip. If you would like to follow along on it, feel free to send me a PM with your information and I will add you to my friend list. I am also on Twitter, and may occasionally post there as well. Send me that information as well if you are interested. :goodvibes

    Those restaurants look great! Way back before we knew that the values were going to get QS instead of the regular DDP I spent hours pouring over the menus on allears. You have some great choices and variety. :goodvibes Since we are paying OOP for TS meals we only kept one (it just seems silly to pay for meals when we can eat for free, lol) and we'll be trying 1900 PF as well, I'm really looking forward to it!

    Love your dining choices!! We've tried them all except for Via Napoli and the Plaza. I can't seem to get into the Plaza, which is driving me nuts. ;)

    I think that Lilian will just love Akershus. :lovestruc The princess interaction is great. I think it's better than CRT.

    I am sending you a PM since I am on FB and Twitter too. :flower3:

    Glad to hear you're going to be doing live updates via facebook. I think I'm going to try to do that too.

    Your restaurant list looks great. I wish we had time to fit in an ADR for Via Napoli, it looks amazing!

    The dining plans look great! Everything tastes better when it's free! Plus, you're eating at some great places. I haven't actually eaten at any of them, but they all sound amazing!

    Someone else is supposed to be looking for me, but I'll ask you as well, just to make sure. If you go on ellen's energy adventure, can you tell me exactly what she's wearing? It's too hard to tell from any youtube videos I've found. Not sure if her t-shirt is orange or pink, and if she's wearing denim or khaki or what for her shirt and pants. Gotta get this halloween costume straight for MNSSHP! Thanks!

    I love the Plaza! My favorite place to eat in the MK. (I like it more than the castle and it is way cheaper.) Hopefully the refurb is over so you can enjoy the wonderful view:cloud9: I always get the Cheese Steak! The only cheese steak I've ever had that is better was in Philly. I would love to hear which characters are where at the MNSSHP. I hope to have a good idea of how to organize our night by the time we go. I can't believe how fast your trip is coming!

    It's coming FAST now....:cool1:

    we love dining at WDW too...we had wonderful character interaction at both Akershus and 1900 PF (dinner) and can't wait for our breakfast at 1900 w/ Mary and Alice :goodvibes

    buffets are great cause there is always something you can find to please everyone in your group...always have Lillian sit on the outside of the table for the characters and someone w/ the camera close by :thumbsup2

    I'll be following you on FB for sure...and look forard to hearing about the character spots and construction look in FL....

    I wish they offered the dining plan the way they had last year before extending it, so you could have experienced all the TS meals you had wanted. I'm so glad you were able to keep 1900 PF! I think it will be magical. :goodvibes

    It's okay- I actually like the way it worked out. QS is more flexible and we get an extra snack credit so we can use one for breakfast and still have the option of getting an ice cream or cool drink when we're really hot. :thumbsup2

    Thank you Sophia! I wish you could get into the Plaza. Maybe you could walk up during an "off" time and get in while you are down there. You might be pleasantly surprised.

    I am really looking forward to Akershus--I think it will be great. :goodvibes

    :flower3: I sent you a request on both.

    I dropped off Coral Reef for Via Napoli since we have been there before and because we are having seafood the day before it was scheduled at Cape May Cafe.

    I will check if we go on it! I will add it to my list. :thumbsup2

    I cannot believe how quickly August went!! I am looking forward to both Akershus and Park Fare because I have read such positive things. :goodvibes

    Thanks for the great dining tips! :thumbsup2

    Hi Jenny! I am looking forward to the Plaza too. Really, all the ADRs will be great I think. :goodvibes I will let DH know about the cheese steak sandwich.

    I will definitely make notes on where to find the characters at MNSSHP and if I notice when they are busier, out , etc. :thumbsup2

    It's getting so close now!! :goodvibes

    Your dining looks great, we've done a lot of them. Will be interested to hear about Via Napoli as we haven't tried that one. We've done Cape May for breakfast but not dinner and only did Tusker House before it was TS. I'm really trying to convince DH to do it on our Nov trip, we'll see....

    I'll send you a PM about Facebook, would love to follow along on your trip. Especially interested to hear about MNSSHP.

    It is getting so close! :banana: I will definitely let you all know what I think about Via Napoli--it sounds yummy.

    :yay: I sent the request to you. MNSSHP is on the list. Gotta let those going after the first party what went down. ;)

    What a day! We had Lilian’s little party planned for today at the lake we have a membership to but of course the weather decided not to cooperate for me. It never seems to fail that when I plan something outdoors the weather is less than ideal (normally pours rain). While it did not rain, the temperature dropped into the upper 50s, low 60s way too cold to be at the lake swimming and having fun. We ended up moving it to Chuck E Cheese and everyone seemed to have a good time. The girls had a great time meeting Chuck E. Here are some cute pictures from the party:

    Lilian with her noise maker

    Lilian with her friends (miss one other friend who had to leave by this point) and Chuck E.

    The almost birthday girl with Chuck E.

    Her birthday cake (yes we went ahead and ordered one for this party and then we will have one at Disney :rolleyes1)

    The Goodies: the first is the favor bag, it had a butterfly bow (ordered from Becky), a princess inspired necklace and bracelet set, silly bands, temporary tattoos and lipstick aka princess chapstick. The second picture is the swim treats they would have gotten at the beginning so they had things to play with at the lake. I was not going to hang onto them, no need to have four of each so they got those too. :thumbsup2 They are a bucket with shovel, water disc, water balls, googles and fruit-scented bubbles.

    Overall it was a great time! Not what was originally planned, but it was just as good in my opinion. (Wendy, feel free to add your thoughts). :goodvibes

    **Again, sorry with the pictures--I sized them down but PhotoBucket is not wanting to cooperate. :confused:
