    hello again everyone! :wave2:

    i have one more review remaining in my birthay/labor day dining review & in 39 days, we will be returning to disney!

    this time, we (my daughter emme & i) will be celebrating! i passed my nursing exam (NCLEX) on november 3rd & i became a nurse in florida. this was a personal triumph for me as i reached my goal to become a nurse while raising my daughter as a single mom.

    we will be staying at the little mermaid standard rooms @ the art of animation resort.

    i currently am on the regular dining plan (1 CS, 1 TS, 1 Snack) a day but may drop the plan for a TIW card or upgrade to DxDDP. it's still up in the air. however, with F&W happening, i may keep the plan for the snack credits to use during our F&W day. decisions, decisions!

    currently, my adr's are as follows but i'm sure i will be changing. :rotfl:

    Travel dates: 10/25/12 - 10/28/12.

    DAY 1: arrival day

    LUNCH: Cinderella's Royal Table
    DINNER: Landscape of Flavors @ AOA or a CS in MK
    **MNSSHP @ MK!!**

    DAY 2

    BRUNCH: Le Cellier Steakhouse
    LATE LUNCH: CS somewhere in Disney
    DINNER: Chef Mickey's


    DAY 3

    BRUNCH: Snacks @ Food & Wine Fest
    LATE LUNCH: CS somewhere in Disney
    DINNER: 1900 Park Fare
    **Tomorrowland Terrace Fireworks Dessert Party ADR @ 810pm**


    DAY 4: departing day

    BREAKFAST: Akershus Royal Banquet Hall
    LUNCH: Afternoon Tea at Garden View Tea Room


    every ADR is a new place for us minus chef mickey's. i swore that i would only return to CRT for a special occasion & could not get an ADR as i had been trying for weeks. but just three days ago, this ADR popped up & i booked. emme is still talking about having breakfast at cinderella's castle during our last trip.

    i have friends in orlando who will be joining me during f&w. now i won't be the creepy lady stuffing her face with delicious food & drinking tasty adult beverages while pushing my sleeping child in a stroller. :lmao:

    thanks for reading & i will be updating soon. :moped:

    Yay for becoming a registered nurse! I hope you enjoy staying in a Little Mermaid room at AoA (please include some pics of the room!), and have a great time enjoying all the delicious F&W snacks. :goodvibes

    Just saw that you had started your Dining Report for your October trip and wanted to join in. :thumbsup2 I am so happy that you will be texting in some live updates while you are there, as well as doing a full dining report later.

    Oh, and congrats on achieving your goal...that's really great! :woohoo:

    ETA: Love the pic of you and Emme in front of the castle!

    thanks for all the positive replies everyone.

    as cliche as it sounds, all the hard work definitely paid off. :thumbsup2

    i've finally unpacked from our last disney trip (very sad, i know) & i was looking over my disney brochures from our hotel. i'm so excited to go back.

    i updated our dining reservations as i was able to snag an 'ohana breakfast adr. persistence does pay off!

    i think i will be keeping the dining plan for this trip because of f&w but will also purchase a tiw card to use on our next trips & cover meals not included on the regular dining plan.

    35 days & counting....can't wait! pixiedust:

    25 days & counting!

    been awhile since i last posted and updated my dining reviews.

    i think i will be making more than one trip to epcot for f&w. my daughter naps and instead of going back to the hotel, i can just push her in the stroller & ride the monorail to epcot...where i can eat & drink in silence. :thumbsup2

    i am very excited!! still making adjustments to my adr's...i'm checking daily.

    :cheer2: :cheer2: :cheer2:

    CONGRATULATIONS!!! :banana:

    I'm also celebrating in Disney for earning my RN!! Graduated in May and passed NCLEX in July - Woo-Hoo!!

    I promised my boys that when mommy became a nurse we would celebrate in Disney World! We check into POR in 18 days!!

    Enjoy your trip!! Because I for one TRULY understand the hell that nursing school can be :furious: and how AWESOME it feels to have survived it!!! :dance3:

    thank you so much! definitely a hard journey that is worth celebrating!

    i modified my adr's and removed 'ohana for breakfast (although i have not cancelled the adr as of yet). i'm still debating when to go to epcot for f&w. thursday would be less crowded but that is when we will be at MNSSHP. i've read the weekends are always PACKED!

    i've decided to purchase a TIW in addition to keeping the dining plan for this trip.

    15 days & counting...so excited!! princess:

    Congratulations!!!!:goodvibes I just graduated nursing school and passed the NCLEX in July! It's grueling hard work and definitely deserves a huge celebration when it's all said and done!!

    I'm looking forward to reading your reviews. Especially, Chef Mickey's. We have an ADR there in April for my nephew's 3rd birthday! I've heard so many mixed reviews and I am interesting to hear yours!

    congrats on all your hard work!! that is amazing! :cheer2:

    i've actually been to chef mickey's before. my daughter loves the place. the buffet had some great selections and even though i did not like all the items, i did leave feeling satisfied. it's pretty loud & somewhat chaotic but we had an absolute blast!

    in retrospect, it's hard to enjoy the food & take pictures of the kids & characters. i'm not that coordinated. :rotfl2: during my last trip, for the most part, my food was cold as i was waiting on the characters, changing lenses and making sure my daughter didn't run off. :upsidedow

    i will be sure to write a review and post pictures. my avatar is a picture of emme & mickey in chef garb during our april visit. pixiedust:

    my brother deployed for afghanistan today (he's a combat medic & sargeant in the US Army reserves & already served in iraq) & it has been a very emotional week. i am looking forward to lots of laughter & silly times with my daughter.

    updated my ADR's! :)

    Thanks everyone for the well wishes...being a nurse & helping children (I work in pediatrics) has been a very rewarding experience this past year. I'm so ready to celebrate with my daughter.

    One more sleep!!! :)

    we finally made it to our ADR at CRT for lunch.

    my favorite bite of the day was the mushroom & beef soup which was my appetizer. i had a choice of the salad or soup & i opted for the soup.

    the soup was very hearty and had a wonderful earthy flavor. there were chunks of portabella mushrooms, tender beef, carrots & potatoes. the soup was scrumptious and i would have been very happy with a large bowl and a nice crusty piece of bread to dip into it as my meal. it was very good & an unexpected surprise.

    we are currently waiting for the rain to pass to head back to MK for MNSSHP. send some pixie dust our way so this rain will STOP! regardless, emme & i will brave the rain and rock our ponchos! :thumbsup2

    i'm so happy to be back at disney...rain or shine! :cloud9:

    Hops & Barley: Linda Bean's Perfect Maine Lobster Roll

    this lobster roll was perfect. i only wish the roll was a bigger portion (i'm greedy!). the lobster was cooked perfectly. there was a very nice lobster/bread ratio and the mayo & dill (i think) was a great addition. i have to say again, there was lots of lobster in this roll!

    the lobster roll was a whopping $7.50 and it was the best usage of my snack credit. i wish i stopped here first so i could have ordered a second one with my snack credits. unfortunately, it was my last snack credit. :(

    highly recommend this...my favorite bite of the day (maybe the entire trip).

    :dance3:
