    Ahhh, I should have written, "these are the places we have decided would be nice to eat at". LOL. We decided sadly that V&As was not on the list this trip...Ha ha ha.

    Great news on the flights!! Thats some foody list, nows the hard bit it narrowing it down. We normally do one ADR a day as it fits in with the DDP but if I eat more I would lol!! I think this trip we've got a few days we're doing a TS breakfast and dinner.

    I know, it's hard to narrow down and this timeit is all about the boys... So no Le Cellier for us in reality! LOL My boys eat better at breakfast than any other time of the day and so we figure TS buffet breakfasts, then CS lunch and maybe TS dinner if there are special ones we want them to experience.

    The table service restaurants that we did on our honeymoon are:

    San Angel Inn
    Le Cellier
    V&A
    Cinderella's Royal Table
    1900 Park Fare
    Grand Floridian Cafe
    Ohana
    Kona Cafe
    Sci Fi Diner
    Coral Reef
    Princess Storybook Dining at Akershus Royal Banquet Hall
    Garden Grill
    Rainforest Cafe at Animal Kingdom
    Boma
    Jiko
    Cape May Cafe
    Chef Mickey's Buffet
    Whispering Canyon Cafe
    Fulton's Crab House
    Liberty Tree Tavern
    California Grill
    Artist Point
    House of Blues

    I think that's it. We liked them all I think, except the meat at San Angel was a little tough.

    Tell me about it! I change my mind about three times in which to book.That sounds like a good plan and there's lots of character buffets breakfast that I'm sure your boys will enjoy.

    Just joining in, having spotted your thread I'm now right in the middle of reading your wedding TR and have to tell you it looks wonderful.
    I'm somewhat envious that a) you were a Disney bride and b) you're going to Disney for nearly a month! The thought of making 24+ ADRs makes me giddy :lmao:

    If it helps, we've been a few times with our DDs (most years in Aug/Sept since eldest DD turned 1) and it worked well to plan some early breakfast buffets in the first couple of days whilst everyone's body clocks were still adjusting and we were (all of us!) up and ready to go early!! The empty park pictures are always a bonus too :thumbsup2

    And now I've read through to the end and sorry to see there were some bumps in the road for you :hug:

    Will take a read of your blog soon too, but just a quick look at your description of yourself and I think we might have a bit in common :)

    Hi Claire! Thank you for reading :) I do love an ADR.... :rotfl::rotfl::rotfl: I'm glad the breakfast buffets worked for you, I was thinking that they would be the best chanceI have of getting the boys to sit down to eat for the day! Have you written any TRs? I love reading them :)

    One day I'll finish my wedding TR, I really will! I hope I hear from you again :)

    Gav and I were sick with tonsilitis and sinusitis but we had fun....and managed to get our Photopass CD ordered and count out enough nickels and cents for the boys to make 15 pressed pennies each in Disney!

    So I knew that putting in extra hours when Ofsted were inspecting was a good move! My headteacher (I teach two half days and blog the rest of the time whilst I'm a SAHM) has allowed me my time off in November! The holiday is on!

    Just noticed this!!

    I have a spreadsheet that has all my travel dates, park info (opening times/parades etc). I have it broken into 3 different front pages, 1 for "quick view" park opening times and EMH, 1 for the general plan for my holiday and another for any reservation numbers/car hire telephone numbers/hotel telephone numbers etc.

    Then I have individual tabs for each day I'm there where I fill everything in for what I hope to achieve that day etc.

    This is the first year I've done the DDP so I will be adding in the ADR numbers/locations etc in there too.

    Happy to send you a copy of my sheet if you pass me your email address, although you sound really organised so I bet you have one too!! :cool1:

    Welcome back - your photos are beautiful and your dogs look amazing! How exciting to be returning with your family - we too will be returning (not till 2015 - saving the pennies) as a family. Our last trip was for our 1st wedding anniversary in 2006 which set the broodiness in wanting to return next time with a little one to experience the magic with us. Happy planning :goodvibes

    Anyone who volunteers to put in extra hours for Ofsted deserves time off in my opinion! I've gone through Ofsted more than once too and I don't think it ever gets any easier! I personally didn't mind having inspectors observing my lessons but I hated the amount of extra work and time that goes into trying to show the Ofsted team what you and your school are capable of :scared:

    BTW - cute birthday pics :)

    Oh, that sounds amazing. I loooooove things like that. I'm chasing my tail all of the time lately, I'd love to see your sheet!

    I hear it was May? I'm so excited, that's ADR time for us! How lovely to be able to celebrate your DD's birthday! I can't wait to hear all about it ~ maybe we'll see you there!!

    Aw, thank you! It will soon come around, and you'll be having your first family trip like us! I'm super broody all of the time ;)

    Thanks! I got even cuter photos (I havethem on my blog) and it was so much fun (although sad for me as they are growing so fast). Ofsted is such a pain ~ we got oustanding thankfully so hopefully they'll stay away a while!
