    Life update

    Yesterday was our 6 year anniversary! We celebrated Saturday night by going to The Cheesecake Factory while my sister watch DD for us.

    DH also surprised me Saturday when he got home from work he had these for me!

    I was so shocked, in a good way! Last time he got me flowers was over 7 years ago.

    Today I baked some cookies for DD. We found at Target last night.

    I tried to figure out what our meal cost would be for just our ADRs and let me tell you I was floored when I was done. I will show you an idea of how much my estimate for each restaurant will be for just food (including DD) and like a coke. Also this is with the TiW discount.

    Meal Cost

    Restaurant Meal (approx) Total (approx)

    Les Chef de France $54 $68

    The Plaza $40 $50

    Rainforest Cafe(DVC discount) $90 $108

    Captain's Grille $60 $75

    Afternoon Tea $64 $80

    Crystal Palace $60 $75

    Via Napoli $50 $62

    Le Cellier $61 $76

    Whispering Canyon Cafe $65 $80


    $544 $674
    TiW Card 75


    Grand Total $750​


    :faint: :sad: :faint: I did over estimate everything tho and also in my head I am saying it will be $800 for just our ADRs alone. Now I am trying to figure our the best way to go about this. Should we put big lump sum on a gift card?? No way we will carry around that much cash. I am not even comfortable carrying around my CC. Oh well I am thinking tho I might be cancelling some ADRs. I say that but DH wouldnt let me, he likes have one place every day where we sit down and eat. Guess I will be looking at menus and seeing if there is anyway for me to get it down.

    It doesn't look like it but Dec 12 - 15 we only have our ADRs planned and we will just go to whichever park we feel like those days. Our first 6 day are the only ones I really have a plan persue and that is just to do the Must Do things.

    I hope so I may be changing some of mine around if it will make our meals a little cheaper.

    I'd vote scenario #1. I don't know if I'd need to go outlet shopping though. Takes away from the resort hopping.

    That would be my vote too now if I can just get DH on board. No worries my outlet shopping is for the kid's clothing stores to get DD more clothes at good prices and will not take away from our disney shopping!!!! :goodvibes

    You have some great ADRs. None of ours overlap. Can't wait to hear about your TEA experience. I so want to do that one day.

    Thanks, I am most excited about Les Chef de France!!! Oh that's a shame, do you have your park days planned out, do any of those overlap???

    I am excited about the Tea and will definitely be doing a trip report. I am thinking about doing the Perfectly Princess Tea with DD when she is older.
