    We had a fabulous trip. Just me and DD4. I can't believe we did so much!!! It was DD's first trip without a stroller and she did great! SOOO nice not having to stroller park every few minutes. We ate at the following:
    Fulton's Crab House dinner
    Hollywood Brown Derby lunch
    California Grill dinner
    Kona Cafe breakfast
    Crystal Palace dinner
    San Angel Inn lunch
    Cape May Cafe breakfast
    Tony's lunch
    1900 Park Fare dinner
    CRT breakfast (we were first ones to arrive and DD was named Honorary Princess of the Day)
    Boma dinner
    Boma breakfast
    Tusker House lunch
    Ohana's dinner
    Akershus breakfast
    Flying Fish dinner
    Our MNSSHP night was a washout :( We got in line for the princesses at 5:30 and were first ones to meet them then it rained for the rest of the night pretty much. Horrible downpours. It was miserable! We stood in line for 2 hours to get replacement tickets for the following night's party so we ended up cancelling our Spirit of Aloha reservations so we were able to enjoy the party. The second night was fantastic! Ended up with a ton of candy and met Tink, Periwinkle, Malifacent, Jafar, Gaston, Jasmine & Genie.
    F&W was great... we went for 2 days. Yesterday was our last day and we went early to the Chase Lounge for wristbands (we were the first in the doors and got the 5:30 show). Seats were awesome and Boyz II Men was fantastic! The computers were down yesterday so the 12 snack credits that I used up were never taken off of my room card!!! We still had 17 credits left when we got back to the hotel so we loaded up on candy to take home.
    The weather has been humid and HOT but yesterday there was a nice breeze. I'm not ready to go home to Wisconsin and it's 30 degree weather today!!! YUCK!

    Feel free to ask any questions :)

    So glad you had a great time. Looks like it was a full on vacation with a fab list of restaurants.

    Sounds like your DD was a trooper too - all that activity and no stroller, high fives for her :goodvibes

    I'm always sad whenever we leave): Just out of curiosity which restaurant did you like the most?

    Impressed your daughter did so well. My son is five and at .disney he ends up taking a nap after lunch for an hour so I still needed the stroller.

    Glad you enjoyed the party! Did you get to see any of new fantasyland?

    I have been trying to decide on a favorite... lol. It is hard! They were all great! I would say the best overall food was at Brown Derby (even though I really hated the service on our last trip... this time it was GREAT!) Cali Grill had the best sushi as an appetizer. CRT won for best breakfast (lobster crepes are amazing)

    No, we did not get to preview any of the Fantasyland :( I was hoping for it but I'm not sure how we would've fit it in if we had the chance... there was just so much more to do. It was neat getting to see the new sideshow meetngreet and the double Dumbo which we had just missed on our last trip.

    I was worried about the food since there have been so many complaints but YUMMMMM!!! It was great! We will return there for sure on our next trip. The characters are fantastic and our service was great as well. They had salmon, shrimp & bunch of different salads on the buffet. Can't go wrong with the strawberry soup and gummy bears too :)

    Boma is one of my absolute favorites at WDW. It was our first time having breakfast there and it was GREAT! They brought out a giant Mickey waffle for DD's bday which was really nice. Lots of fruit and meats to choose from. The soups are the best thing to go for at dinner time. Every one I have tried has been great!
    Cape May was very yummy as well... I loved the asparagus and cheese available on the buffet. The characters were great there as well.
    Flying Fish was sooo yummy! I had the mozzarella bufala (sp?) salad for an appetizer and LOVED it! I ate it all.. yum! I did the famous duo (steak & potato wrapped snapper) for my entree... the steak was a bit overdone for me but it wasn't bad... the snapper wasn't too flavorful but different to try. I got the concession trio for dessert and LOVED it. The presentation was so cute and everything was yummy. I would go back there for sure!
