    Hey Michelle! Welcome back! :goodvibes How funny that you had the same thing at T-Rex - I hope you enjoyed it as much as we did!

    Yay for the new TR in your siggy - I'm going over to check it out now! :yay:

    Abby and Aiden are going to love T-Rex! I can't wait to hear what you think about it when you go. :goodvibes Definitely tell your DH to try a burger there - the one I had last year was so good! :thumbsup2

    I know! The portions at T-Rex are huge! We both ended up taking over half of our orders to go. It would definitely be a good place to split a meal! :thumbsup2

    DAY 5 – Pt. 1 - The ADR I Never Should Have Made

    This morning, it was difficult to wake up for some reason. I wasn’t particularly wanting to go back to sleep, but I didn’t have the desire to get going either. However, we had to get up and go because we had a breakfast ADR at Cape May Café over at the lovely Beach Club!

    Now, I know in my previous update I probably lead you all to believe that this ADR was a huge mistake because the food was gross, or the service was bad, etc. But…that wasn’t the case at all! :rolleyes1

    You see, this breakfast was probably unnecessary because we were on the last half of our trip and therefore pretty worn out and we were still so full from our T-Rex dinner that we barely ate anything! This has taught me not to book early morning ADR’s after late night dinners in the future! Also, we had to pay out of pocket for this one since we didn’t have enough DDP credits for it. So, in many ways this ADR was a waste.

    However, it wasn’t a complete loss because it's always fun to dine with your favorite characters, and it’s even more fun when they’re decked out in their beachwear!

    This Minnie was so tiny! She couldn't have even been 5 feet tall! Although she looks kind of large here admiring my ring :love:

    I think Donald is particularly adorable at Cape May!

    One of my favorite pics of the trip!

    Cape May was kind of dead this morning so everyone came around a second time. Hope you don't mind more character pictures!

    This is definitely Miguel and Goofy's signature pose!

    The booths we were in are only made to sit one person on each side (or two little kids, I guess) so needless to say there wasn't really much room, but Donald didn't seem to mind! He slid right on in and cozied up next to me and then to FI...which was a tight squeeze thanks to Donald's rather large backside :lmao:

    One more of the duck for the road. He's really becoming one of our favorites!

    Even though we couldn’t fully enjoy our meal here (mostly due to being so tired and so full from T-Rex!) I would certainly recommended CMC. This was our third time eating there – twice for breakfast and once for dinner – and we’ve been pleased every time. It’s definitely the most quiet character meal that I’ve been too, and we often see groups of just adults dining there so I think it’s a great option for childless couples who worry about seeming out of place at a character meal. Of course there’s always lots of kiddos there too!

    UP NEXT: We make a shocking find at the Beach Club!

    Oh, Courtney, I love your pictures of your breakfast at Cape May. :) Since we've changed resorts to BC, I have been debating trying to work in this breakfast.

    You should! We've had great experiences there each time and it's a much more relaxing environment than some other places which is nice. :thumbsup2

    Still looks like you had fun at Cape May despite the lack of appetite!

    It's kinda funny to see the Fab 5 in swim wear and you guys in hoodies ;)

    Haha I think the characters find it refreshing when it's just adults sometimes. Maybe next time we go we'll try it out. Not sure yet. I can't wait to read about the rest of your day~~!!!

    Where is the Beach Club at? I'm sorry I love the parks but I'm not familiar with the hotels. :P :scared1:

    It was fun! And we did get really lucky with the characters this year - on our previous trip all of our interactions were only so-so, so we were really pleased this time! :goodvibes

    We did! :goodvibes I just wish we could have enjoyed more of the yummy food! :sad1:

    :laughing: That is so funny - I hadn't thought of that! They definitely were not dressed appropriately for the weather that week! :rotfl:

    Ooohhh, you should try it! :thumbsup2 We've always enjoyed ourselves there. And it's worth the trip just to see the BC (which is located in the Epcot area, by the way - within walking distance from the park, I believe). It is such a beautiful hotel - I would love to stay there! :love:

    Sorry you had to pay OOP and didn't eat that much. Those character meal can be pricey. Leaving us with a cliffhanger, huh???

    hey Courtney!
    I really thought I replied to the pedometer post...I remember telling Danny all about what you posted. He even told me you need to get one of those for us when we go :laughing:

    I love the pictures of AKL! it looks like such a beautiful resort. I love the picture of DFI w/the mickey braids that is too cute!

    I have ressies for T Rex (I think Ashton will love it) I was thinking of CX'ing. But, after your photos and report I think I'm going to have to keep it...I need to check out the menu; when I seen DFI's buffet plate I thought that is perfect for Danny and I to spilt. But, you had to bring up the burger, DH loves a really good burger...so many decisions.

    Cape May looks like a lot of fun; I love the beach wear!

    I know, I wish we could have eaten more so we could have gotten our money's worth. But, it's vacation right?! :goodvibes

    :laughing: Yes, I'm trying to keep my readers engaged with cliffhangers! :rotfl: I hope it's working!


    Yay! I'm so glad my pedometer tales are inspiring others! I will definitely be wearing one again whenever we go back. :thumbsup2

    And I'm so glad you've decided to keep the T-Rex ARD - I agree that Ashton will love it! :thumbsup2 All of the plates there are so big, so I'm sure there's lots of things that could be shared between two people. I think we'll share something when we return in the future - that way we'll have room for dessert! :goodvibes

    PHEW! So glad it was not a bad dining experience and you were just still full and tired :laughing:

    The Beach Club looks awesome! I have always wanted to go and visit, hopefully stay there when the kids get older and we don't go to MK as much! The characters seemed to spend so much time with you! Donald is just adorable in all of your pics!

    I can not wait to see what you find at the BC!! popcorn::

    The Beach Club is so beautiful! I too would love to stay there sometime - I would love having EPCOT so close by! I think your kids would love Cape May! :thumbsup2 You should make an ADR there and then you would get to see the hotel! :cloud9:

    We got really lucky with all of the characters this trip - I think a lot of it was because it wasn't a busy time, you know? They probably didn't feel too rushed so they hung out longer! :woohoo:

    When you said an ADR that you shouldnt have made I thought about the food being bad or the service wasnt up to par. At least it wasnt either. I love the pictures with the characters. There all very cute.
