    Hey there! It's lunch time for me! popcorn::

    I admit that I am glad I don't have to deal with the PFF with DS. I do love the characters though so we do the meals & see whoever we can see!

    Will definitely post before & aftear pics of the Kitchen Sink. I have a feeling that DS will be the one to enjoy the most!

    I am on west coast time. We are a few hours from lunch. I must tell you I do not think I would have the patience to do PFF, and am so glad that my girls are teenagers. Although we do have a four year old girl in our group, thankfully I think her patience isn't as good as mine is so we are probably going to miss it. Darn....;)

    Yeah, I used to be bummed not having a little girl but no longer.

    When DS was 8, I wanted to eat in the Castle at WDW so I booked a princess lunch. He told me that he would just tell the Princesses to "move on along to see the little girls" but then added "except for Jasmine 'cuz she's kinda hot". ;) My little ladies man, even at 8! We didn't see Jasmine but I have the best pic of Aurora leaving a lipstick kiss on his very flushed cheeks! :laughing:

    Trust me boys are much easier than girls....:scared1: My son has always been like that too. He loves having older sisters and that they have "hot" friends. :rotfl2:

    Found your trip report. Sounds like a great trip ahead. :cool1:

    Look forward to the reports when you get home. Maybe more pics of lipstick kisses from princesses? :lmao:

    Have fun!

    I changed our WOC dining package from WCT to AG. Looks like the food is mediocre at both places and I really like the jellyfish lights in AG. Plus their dessert looks better and let's face it, it really is all about the chocolate!

    So our final dining reservations are:

    7/24 Goofy’s Kitchen 7:00 PM

    7/25 Café Orleans 12:00 PM

    7/25 PCH Grill at 6:00PM

    7/26 House of Blues 3:00 PM

    7/27 Blue Bayou 11:30 AM

    7/27 Napa Rose 8:00 PM

    7/28 Storytellers Café 9:30 AM

    7/28 Ralph Brennan’s Jazz Kitchen 7:00 PM

    7/29 Plaza Inn 10:00 AM

    7/29 Ariel's Grotto at 5:00 PM

    7/30 PCH Grill 8:30 AM

    7/31 Carnation Café 12:00 PM

    Hoping to book a Fantasmic Dessert Package for the 30th and will probably order a WOC picnic for the 31st. Not sure if we will see the show a 2nd time but I want to give us the option. We have to eat something for dinner so why not cover all the bases!

    OUr trip still seems pretty far away but we are getting there... :wizard:

    So my DSis called yesterday to say that even though it is waaaay far in advance, she wants to plan a family get together next Labor Day weekend (2011). She lives in Fort Lauderdale which happens to be about 3 hours from Orlando.

    Soooooooooooo, we are now at 33 days til Disneyland and 433 til Walt Disney World! :goodvibes :banana: :rolleyes1

    I can't go all that way and not pop in to see the Mouse. Plan is to fly into Orlando the weekend before Labor Day and stay probably 4 nights (til Wednesday) then drive down to my sister's for the rest of the week.

    Having even a remote plan to go to WDW next year will make it just a bit easier to leave DLR this year.

    And possibly another Mom & Son trip next year. I have mixed feelings on that. DH doesn't love Disney as much as DS and I but he does enjoy our trips. He mentioned last night that maybe DS and I could do the Disney part next year and he would fly down at the end of the week for the part at my sisters. While I do love the idea of another Mom & Son trip, it is hard to get over the guilt of spending the money & not bringing DH . But then again, DH pointed out that he and I went to Disney 4 times without DS (before he was born!) and that DS and I have only been twice without him! :upsidedow And I am sure DH and I will have trips after DS moves on with his own family.

    Yep, too far away to stress right now. But I do like to make my reservation as soon as the next year's dates open up. Usually I pay a bit each month until it is paid. This trip was different. But doing to WDW, I will have to pay a bit each month and the more months I have to pay, the better!

    Ok, enough rambling aleady ... :rolleyes:
