    Yes, you read that right. I fell asleep during Star Wars and we're still going to fight the madness of Star Wars Weekends, on Memorial Day Weekend on top of that! :scared1:

    Are we crazy? Maybe a little, but we're planning a wedding a vacation time this year is quite limited.

    First, the WHO:

    There's me, Kelly, and my fiancé, Geoff:

    I'm the Disney fan. ::MinnieMo He's the Star Wars fan. :darth:
    I'm luring him down to WDW for the weekend with the promise of Star Wars. I've lost count of how many times I've been to WDW, I'm currently a proud owner of an Annual Pass. Geoff on the other hand...he goes to WDW because it makes me happy :hug:

    My Mom & Dad will also be joining us:

    They started my love of Disney and live about 45 minutes away from the parks.

    The WHEN:
    We're flying down late on Friday, May 27 and staying until the afternoon of Monday, May 30.

    The WHERE:

    This is my absolute favorite resort and I'm so excited to see the new refurb! We booked 2 King bed rooms.

    So join me as I plan the details of our Memorial Day/Star Wars Weekend trip!! :yay:

    Oh technology :badpc:

    We almost picked Riverside, I've never stayed on that half...but the lure of a freshly refurbed room was too much for me to resist!

    Obviously like the good DIS'er that I am, as soon as we booked the vacation, I was online booking ADRs.

    Personally, more than anything I'm looking forward to beignets for breakfast at the food court in POFQ :banana:

    :wave2: Welcome!!




    Sooo...I'm thinking about changing our lunch ADR from Brown Derby to Sci-Fi...thoughts? I just think that maybe Brown Derby will be a little too much for lunch...

    Thanks for the welcome. I'm the wrong person to ask because I was not a fan of Brown Derby when we went seven years ago--we had bad service (and only four or so tables occupied) and the food was mediocre at best. We enjoy Sci-Fi; it's not gourmet food, but DH loves the reuben and I was quite pleased with the cheeseburger, onion rings and shake. :goodvibes

    Sorry...I was too lazy to do a second post. BUT I value your opinion :goodvibes I haven't been to the Derby in years...I think we went in 96 and I haven't been back since. I just can't imagine eating such a large meal for lunch...and at $30+!

    I thought Sci-Fi would be fun. But really any of the other restaurants might be better for lunch.

    Soooo decision made! We switched to Mama Melrose for lunch. I couldn't justify the prices at Brown Derby for lunch, it just seemed a little ridiculous...

    We really like Mama Melrose...especially when we get to see Fantasmic. We're only skipping it this year because Fantasmic is not playing on our dates and so we are going to Sci-Fi (and trying three new places this year too!).

    I fell asleep during the most recently released/last Star Wars movie as well! My sister and I are going to be there a week after you and our parents who live in Florida will meet us for a couple of days so we can celebrate my mom's 57th birthday together.

    May the force be with you and the Disney magic be with your fiance!

    Kelly, how did I miss this?? I'm so sorry to be so late, but I'm here and cannot wait to see the rest of your plans!:cool1:

    P.S. How's the wedding planning going? I love the engagement photo of the two of you! Really nice!

    Ah, a kindred spirit :laughing: Welcome :wave:

    I was excited about my Mickey Mail...Geoff wasn't as excited :confused3


    You probably missed it because it's not a very exciting PTR :rotfl:

    Wedding plans are going well. 6 months and 1 week :eek: We have all the big stuff planned, so now it's about the details. Right now we're trying to pick a place for the Rehearsal Dinner and I'm deciding where I want to get my hair did for the big day! :cutie:

    And since I was asked about Bandit on another thread, I thought I'd post a quick picture. This one is from Christmas, I love it because he's all dishelved. I think I caught him in the middle of playing. The last couple times we've had him groomed they've trimmed his snout a bit, I'm trying to grow it back out, I like it fuller :snooty:
