    YAY!!! I'm so glad you made it! I hope CP was excellent... I can't wait for the pictures, I'm thinking of taking Cait. when we return. (Though she said she doesn't like pooh :eek: :sad2: How could she not?????)

    Hope it warms up a little more than 55 for you! Have fun! I'm looking forward to the updates!

    I hope the girls had fun at CP! That is our favorite character meal. Our girls have no interest in Winnie the Pooh and friends in real life, but they cannot get enough of them when at Disney World!

    Ok we are back and I am totally exhausted but I am going to try my hardest to get day 1 posted...forgive me for any typos as my hands are freezing from the 39 degree temp tonight, supposed to get to the high 20's! I also apologize if the pics are not up to snuff...it is so much harder with kids!

    This morning I had a 6am wake up call so DH and I could get ready and then get the girls up...waking up to nice Poly Hawaiian music is my kind of wake up call although Brad Pitt would work nicely too! We went to the lobby to get the girls their tickets and man it was freezing! All of us were in 4 layers of clothes and that wasnt enough, the poor little one was a popcicle.

    As you will soon see, Day 1 was all about timing! Monorail was right there for us and it was heated! Thank goodness! We walked right into MK, walked right into CP and we were seated at 8:05 on the dot to a completely empty place.....and it stayed that way for the 40 minutes we were there! I have never seen it so dead or so quiet, we loved it!

    The girls ate very well here, the older one loved the sausage and the hard boil eggs..and the puffed french toast which was AWESOME! She had hot cocoa and they brought her out a plate of mini marshmallows

    [​IMG]

    The little one had grapes (she can eat her weight in grapes) and half an apple, 2 blueberry muffins (she kept telling us to try them they were so good) a puffed french toast and donut holes...nothing like processed and natural sugar to get you going! Apple juice was the drink of the morning!

    [​IMG]

    Here is my plate, which I inhaled, I guess the cold makes you hungry! Love the eggs, the sausage was amazing, killer biscuits and gravy, wonderful red skin potatoes but the corn beef hash is horrible...too salty! The potato casserole was also terrible, the potatoes were not cooked and the topping was too sandy texture wise. And of course, puffed toast! This was just a fantastic way to start our day!

    [​IMG]

    Todd had a plate o' stuff...basically all of the above but he had bacon!

    [​IMG]

    Since the place was so empty I have a ton of buffet pics, the charcters spent a ton of time with the few people that were in there...it was just a blast and the girls had such an amazing time. The little one kept saying "this is the best day of my life!"

    Sounds like a great start! And you were worried. The puffed french toast is my favorite part of CP--I could eat it all day long. Sorry the potatos were not good--they are usually really good. Anxious for more--and hope you have pictures of the girls.
