    OOOH how did you like the online reservations!! I'm thinking about doing it at midnight on my 90 day mark haha. That way I don't have to wait till the morning to call lol.

    I have never been to Ohana for breakfast, but I hear it is really good. But I have been to Chef Mickey's Breakfast, and I can tell you it is amazing!! I loved it there. So much food, all was very good. The breakfast pizza there is the best lol. It's so simple, but the flavor is sooo good!

    If you can do both do both. I think Aaron will like Ohanas better. I don't see him having good time at CM with the song and dance they do there LMAO. I can see him now.

    Ha, I know! I can't stop looking/buying them. This is bad...very BAD! :sad2: Aaron and my BFF think they are hideous and can't believe I caved. I'm already planning on getting a VB diaper bag when I have kids. Aaron already said I'll have to get him a "man bag" b/c he refuses to carry it. :rotfl::lmao:

    No problem! Making the ADRs online went so smoothly and it gave me TONS of time to be indecisive and review my schedule first. LOVED IT!! :thumbsup2:thumbsup2:thumbsup2

    I know! They should've done this YEARS ago. It was so easy and not nearly as stressful as it is when you have a CM on the phone sifting through times. I love the online system. Such an awesome upgrade, for sure!

    Can't wait to hear what you think of CM (and see your pics).

    You know, I see them at the most random places. I think our local Cracker Barrel sells them, too. Weird!

    Is it the food, atmosphere, both that makes it better?

    I LOVED making the ADRs online. It seriously is SO MUCH BETTER than calling. I mean, leaps and bounds! I loved being able to type in all these different times and not worry about irritating the CM. I mean, I know it's their job and I'm sure I'm not the only one who does that...but still. I always feel bad when making them sort through all these different dates while I try to figure out my schedule. I think you'll love it -- especially if you can get all your ADRs made at midnight instead of calling at the butt crack of dawn! :rotfl2: :thumbsup2

    Ooh, simple is good. Aaron has the taste buds of a little kid so I think he might like it. He usually hates buffets, but loves breakfast ones. I think it's something about the all you can eat bacon that really gets him going. I won't lie...I really want to see Aaron get "harassed" by the characters at CMs. It will make for some awesome pictures. :rotfl: I'm evil!

    I think you have a good point -- we'll do both! Why not? Plus, I've never been inside the Poly so it'd be a good reason to check it out.

    Honestly, I think it's both. The food was good when we ate there and the atmosphere just felt so inviting as we were waking up and getting ready to head out to a park. I guess I'm weird like that! :laughing:

    Both of those are breakfasts that we (and when I saw we I really mean I) want to try. I would try to do both if you are morning people and can stand getting up that early two days of your vaca.

    Glad to hear it is working for you. I Can't wait to try it out myself.

    Yay for online reservations! :goodvibes Honestly I don't think you can go wrong with either Ohana or CM for breakfast. We've only done CM and enjoyed it.

    I don't think that's weird at all...or maybe I'm weird too! It sounds really nice. I really can't wait to check out the Poly!

    You'll love the new system. Seriously, it is SO much nicer than calling!!!!

    Well, we can be morning people for the at least two days...at least, I hope. :rolleyes1 It's going to be painful -- for Aaron that is.

    I think you'll like it. It was so easy!!

    That seems to be the general consensus. I'm really looking forward to trying them. Plus...I can't wait to check out both of those hotels. I've never been in a monorail resort before -- crazy, eh?

    Wooohoooo for online ADRs!! :banana:

    Your ADRs look great! I'm sooo looking forward to WCC dinner our first night - it just sounds like so much fun, doesn't it?! :woohoo:

    The only ADR we've ever done before was Chef Mickey's breakfast. It was a lot of fun and the food was pretty good too! I haven't been to 'Ohanas - the limited menu is why I crossed it off our ADR list - but I've heard that's lots of fun too!

    Why not do both if you'd like? The two early breakfasts are three days apart - plenty of time between to get some extra sleep kwim?

    Online ADRs are the best...so far, anyway. I'm going to take your advice and call to confirm them. I'd hate to get there and my ADRs went missing. Heads would roll! :rotfl:

    I am so excited for WCC, too. I've been eyeing that skillet for quite some time now. I'm so excited to finally get to try it. Can you believe that I've only done one table service restaurant at WDW?! I'm so ready to branch out!!

    Chef Mickey's looks so much fun. I've always wanted to try it every time we zip through the Contemporary on the monorail. I can't wait to take a picture w/ the characters there. DH will just "love" it! :rolleyes1

    I don't know what it is, but lately I have seriously been neglecting my PTR. Our trip is in 57 days!!!!!!! I can't believe how fast time has flown by. CRAZY!! So, onto an update about my poor VB bag:

    I had a little snafu, er scratch that -- MAJOR snafu with the post office. I ordered my VB bag on 6/15. Well, I never received any tracking information so I contacted the seller to see what was up. She informed me that the item had been delivered (per the priority tracking #). Uh, what?! Delivered, where?! I was a bit miffed. I confirmed the mailing address, and immediately casted blame on my crappy neighbors. I know, this is rude but if you knew them you'd totally understand why I immediately suspected them. :rolleyes1 I asked around to see if anyone had received my package by mistake and all said no -- one acted like she didn't even know what a Priority mail box looked like. Ok, whatever.

    So, I called the post office to see if they might have it there. The conversation went like this:

    ::Ring, ring:: (It took ten minutes to get someone to answer. I was not about to hang up! I'm persistent.)

    Post office man: "Hello."

    Me: "Yes, I never received a package that has been confirmed as delivered. My address is [insert address] and the tracking number is..."

    Post office man: "Oh, wow. You do realize you live in a rough area, right?"

    Me: "Um, thank you. Unfortunately, I did not request your unsolicited opinion on my neighborhood. Could you do your job and help me find my package? Thanks!"

    This guy was absolutely NO help. He put me through to another women, and she was helpful. She got in touch with my carrier, who claims to have not remembered where he left my package. Umm...I'll give him the benefit of the doubt since he does deliver to a lot of houses. The nice lady did say she would speak to the post master about getting me my money back for the package since it was their fault they package was lost. I'm not holding my breath, but hopefully someone good will come from that. I'm supposed to get a call back this afternoon. :goodvibes Sadly, I will not be receiving my VB bag. :sad1:

    RIP little VB bag, wherever you may have wound up. If I see you hanging from the shoulder of one of my skanky neighbors, I will do my best to rescue you!

    On a brighter note, I did find this VB bag online. I got it for $20 (including shipping)!

    Seriously!! I was so ticked. I am glad I found the new one, though. It's bigger and has little side compartments that I like. Still...it's the whole principle behind it. Stupid people!!!! :headache:

    Finally, I have the time to post pictures of all the awesome clothes I've found for the trip/summer in general. I've managed to find A LOT of great sales for the last few weekends. Old Navy was having amazing sales this past week -- shirts and shorts for $5.00, can't beat that!!

    Great job on the clothes for you and the babies! Baby clothes are sooo cute. It was always fun picking out stuff for my cousins' kids.

    I need to get some more shorts too, it is going to be REALLY hot! :scared1: But still I can't wait! :banana:
