    I know there's a review with pictures here:
    http://www.disunplugged.com/2009/06/24/disney-debuts-magic-kingdom-wishes-dessert-party/

    have you seen it?

    And I booked the dessert buffet yesterday! I was going to wait a little longer, but I kept reading about people who said their dates in August were already sold out... so I decided better to be safe than sorry. Luckily, I had a deposit that had just hit, so it worked out well. And Lou's going to pay me back in 1$ & 5$ bills so I can use them for our tip envelopes (since he was supposed to be paying for this.. :lmao)

    AND THERE ARE ONLY 2 MONTHS LEFT!

    It's hard to believe that I started planning all of this a little over 4 months ago... And 6 months seemed like such a long time then. It's whizzed by, and hopefully these next two months will as well. I don't even mind going back to school right after I get back.

    At this time, two months and 1 hour from now, I will be getting up to go to the airport. I think I can fix my sleep schedule by then... I hope.

    Oh! I almost forgot - my changed ADR times:
    8/25 - Plaza Restaurant at 4:25, so that we don't eat dinner and then a buffet of dessert right afterwards.

    8/28 - Biergarten at 7:45, so that we can spend more time at the Animal Kingdom.

    8/31 - Chefs De France at 5:10, because I heard that Remy comes out at 20 after, so I wanted a better chance to see him than at 5:40.

    ooo. I wonder if it's the same sort of spread? Or if they have different national treats? We'll have to compare afterwards. And if there's any Moroccan baklava there, you've gotta bring some back to POP for me! :lmao:

    There are only 50 days left!!!! Mickey Mail should be coming any day now......

    It's weird that I'm half-way through this pre-trip report... I started it at 100 days, and it still seemed like so far away. I hadn't made ADRs yet, and I had just paid my trip off.

    I hope everyone had a great 4th of July... I did! I went swimming on the 4th and 5th, because the weather was so nice. It's supposed to rain tomorrow and Wednesday, so there goes the nice weather. I wanted to get my legs into the sun, because they were so pale, I was worried I would scare all the Floridians - you could trace my veins. :eew:

    I get to go on a mini-vacation to Cape Cod to visit Lou's grandparents in two weeks, which should be fun - I've never been to the Cape! (I just hope it doesn't rain..)

    I'm getting really excited! I can't believe this vaca is so close now!! :thumbsup2
    I have a mini vaca coming up also to Hershey Park in
    16 days! We go somewhere every year for my Bday since it is Mid summer! We use to goto Chincoteague Va for the Wild Pony swim then we started going to Disney and it got to costly doing both! So we usually goto Hershey and make a weekend of it after Hershey off to the outlets we go!! Last year we just went local to our local Waterparks on the Boardwalk! :) One year we actually did goto Great Adventure but it was really boring compared to hershey and now Hershey has the Boardwalk which is a waterpark so Hershey is sooo much more worth the $$

    You know what's so sad? Time creeps by when you are waiting on your vacation to get here. But, when you are ON vacation, time flies by!:confused3

    I know! I remember last time I went, we were there for a while, and at first it seemed like time had stopped... I felt like we were there for a week, and then it turned out to only be 4 days so far... and then, all of a sudden, we were going home. So I just need to not look at any calendars while I'm there.

    I know how you feel! :cool1: I've planned my trip for 9 months, which is way longer than I usually plan... and I can't believe how close it's getting!

    Have fun in Cape Cod- I've been there a couple times, it's a really nice place to spend a few days.

    I can't wait to hear how you like the dessert buffet. We're thinking of doing this over Thanksgiving week if they still have it then.

    Things are good! I downloaded the "Ultimate Disney Packing List".. I forget where I got it, but if you google it, you can find it.

    And I'm getting a haircut today! My friend and I are going together, I'm going to try out a new stylist. If she cuts it how I like it, then I'll go back to her before I go to Disney. I'm very picky about my hair length... it can't go past the shoulders. :goodvibes

    I'm going to bring her a bigger picture of my icon, and see if she can duplicate it.

    I hope they continue it! It seems like a lot of fun (and food), and is reallyyy cheap, compared to some of the other Disney Experiences you can......experience..... :rolleyes1 (it's late..)

    Between that and Thanksgiving dinner, you're going to be stuffed!

    I do, I do! It's great. Actually, I gelled it back, and I felt like Kate Gosselin. Which was weird. So I don't know if I'll gel it like that again.... :lmao:

    I'll try to get a picture of it up soon!
