    Hi Mr. DDW!! I know you have been busy with school but I hope you are enjoying a holiday break. I sure miss there being an active dining review under your authorship! :sad2:

    Yeah, I'm a bit worried about some of our intended ADRs.. we'll have to see. I didn't know that Narcoosees was on the bubble but I do want to try it at least once.

    Take care and I wish you all the best with the New Year! :hug:

    Thanks Wills Mom! I appreciate the well wishes!!

    May is a great time to go to WDW since the Flower and Garden show at Epcot is still going through the middle of the month.

    Thank you so much!! Glad I could share our dining adventures!

    Hi there littlestinkerbelle! Thanks for reading along. Wishing you and your family a wonderful New Year's as well! :hug:

    Hi Allie! Thanks for reading along and thanks for the compliment. Next review I'll have to break out the dictionary and expand my vocabulary beyond - good, awesome, and delish!! :laughing:

    Awesome that we will be at WDW at the same time as us in Feb/Mar. We'll be there from 2/23 - 3/4. If you see us, please say hi!! I'd love that! :thumbsup2

    Hi Rachel! Thanks for reading... this really drug out so thanks for hanging in there. :hug: I was able to follow your live review which have given me ideas for new items to try at LTT (colony salad) and Le Cellier (burger)... thanks for your reviews as well! :hug:

    Hi Belle5! I was excited to see your PM - see my response! :) I am excited about this trip since we have some new resorts, new restaurants, and some great mother/daughter time planned. Thanks for reading! :goodvibes

    Bummer that this one is over! Happy that I don't have too long to wait for another awesom report! I had such a nice time chatting with your lovely family on our trip. It was so great to meet you in person and I am so glad I recognized Em from your pictures. I only have 2 days left on my dining review then I will have to live vicariously through all my DIS friends reports. I am excited to see if BOG is good or not. We want to dine there when we go back down (whenever that is). Looking forward to a new report in a new Year! Have a happy new year!!!

    Oh my gosh Brenda, would you believe that I never even thought about bringing the sausage to the Princess 1/2 until you said something?? :scared1: I'm totally laughing right now at the thought of carrying the sausage with me in my running belt! :rotfl2: Now that you mentioned it, I've got to do it. I'm imagining getting some pictures along the way with characters and at mile markers. :lmao: This is going to be great!

    Terrific ending to your report and I'm excited to see some new restaurants on your list. I'm doing a first at Jiko too and I can't wait! It'll be so fun to see you too in two short months!

    Love your wrap up of favorites, and excited about next trip to read more reviews.

    If you've not caught up on Nicki's reviews, Be Our Guest got an A+ from all six of us.

    Happy New Year.

    Happy New Year! How are my favorite west-coast DISers?

    I am SO sorry that I got so behind, but I'm all caught up on this review now and can't wait to hear about your next trip! It's so soon! :yay:

    As for your dining plans for Feb., they look great! I know Be Our Guest has gotten some iffy reviews, but I think that's just because it's new and they're still irking out the bugs. I went there a couple weeks ago for dinner and LOVED it! Our server was attentive and so friendly, and everything I ate was wonderful. Plus, the atmosphere is just indescribable. It's gorgeous. Definitely a must-do for every trip from now on!

    I noticed that you were also concerned about San Angel Inn. I went there in August and my entire family loved it! The ambience is so peaceful and beautiful, and the food was excellent. Our particular server was very courteous as well. I hope you enjoy San Angel and Be Our Guest as much as we did!

    Merry belated Christmas and Happy New Year to the whole family! :goodvibes

    Happy New Year to you as well! Thanks for reading along! I hope you enjoyed your trip with your parents!

    Hi Karla! Happy New Year to you and your family! I'm so glad that we were able to meet as well... thank goodness I post photos of my kid in my reviews!! :rotfl2:

    I'll be sure to report back regarding BoG.

    Happy New Year to you as well! :goodvibes We're pretty excited about the next girl trip.... and Em planned it! :thumbsup2

    Sounds like you have a great start to making a Dis lover our of your DD - starting her young!! :lmao:

    Oh Linda, thanks! Insert curtsy here! Em may do the DR for this one but I'll definitely weigh in.

    Tracy - you HAVE to do this because it would be hilarious to have the sausage complete 13 miles of Dis fun with you!!! So funny! Can't wait to see you again!

    Kathy I am so excited to see BoG get such a great rating from your group!! I'll have to catch up with Nicki's review to see what you ordered. :) I see you've done some updates to your TR as well... you are putting me to shame!

    Happy New Year Kristen!!! I'm glad to hear another person give positive feedback for BOG! Whew! I definitely want to enjoy the theming and atmosphere. As for San Angel Inn, we'll try it and report back.

    I'm so glad to see you take the time to drop by... I know you are a busy gal! I hope you enjoyed your Christmas and New Year. Ohhh... I see you did an update for your TR.. gotta run and read now. Take care sweetie! :goodvibes

    I'm just coming back after months away from the DIS, and I am busy catching up on everyone's DRs, but I have to chime in now and say WAAA! I LOVE this pic! I looked for Princess Betsy every day I was in MK and it just wasn't to be. And DDW!! What a coup, Brenda!

    Looking forward to reading the rest of your report.

    Hi there! Yay you are back on the Disboards! Thanks for dropping by. I see you just updated your DR and Yachtsman got a 5/5! I completely agree!

    Meeting all the Disers was definitely a highlight. I have to say that I didn't want to reveal DDW but he insisted so yeah, I was pretty excited!

    Hi Lisa29! Thanks for reading. Em is planning this next trip so we'll see if she is like me and changes any ADRs 6 times before our trip! :)

    Cute family. You look way too young to have 4 children.

    Hi Brenda! Just getting caught up on some of my DR reading and I have to say "Bravo" for a fun, insightful and wonderfully written report!! :thumbsup2 I thoroughly enjoyed reading all your reviews and thank you so much for all the time and care you put into writing them. How exciting to have another "girls only" trip planned, it will be here before you know it! Your dining line-up sounds awesome and I can't wait to read what you and Em think about Jiko and BOG.

    I hope you and your family enjoyed a joyous holiday season and all the best to you and yours in 2013!

    Awww.. Christen it would be fun to have you along on our girl trip.
    So glad to hear that BOG had a positive review from you and your family!! I don't think we'll be disappointed. :)

    Thanks so much! You are so sweet!! Uh huh, I will admit, I have a kid turning 30 years old in a couple months. :eek:

    Hi Carol! Thank you for the kind greetings! I'm definitely looking forward to Jiko and BoG!

    I really need to get caught up with everyone's DR/TRs - including yours!
