    Hi everyone!
    The plans- we are getting married on September 5, 2009. We are having an outdoor wedding ceremony at state park near our area. The reception will be in one of their halls there as well. The next day we will be leaving @ 4 from the airport and arriving in Orlando @ 7:30 i think. We are staying CL @ AKL for 6 days. We will be on the deluxe dining plan.

    I thought I would break it down so new people don't have to go e searching for the posts. I hate that!

    That looks so pretty!!! I can't wait to hear all of the details and see lots more pics!!!

    The dining plan is def a great idea - make your reservations as soon as you can - just because they can be really hard to get if you have specific dining times in mind.

    Though Id drop in and give an update....

    Here are my bridesmaid dresses *i think* i like them and they are inexpensive but no one has them in stock so the girls cant try them on....anyone have any opinoin on whether or not its okay to not try them on? They will be pink with a chocolate sash and I am having the sashes shortened bc they are too long for my taste.

    Yay for another home wedding PJ! You and your DF make an adorable couple!!! I like the bridesmaid dress too!! I think you're fine to order without trying on. We did that when I was a bridesmaid in my friend's wedding, and it was fine! Plus, an A line dress like that would look great on anybody! Can't wait to read more!

    First of all your Ring is sooo pretty!

    Now important stuff - get rid of Yak & Yeti! I have never ever read a good review and we HATED it when we were there. I think its by far the worst restaurant on disney property. If you don't believe me then go over and ask the restaurant board. I just would hate to see you be as disapointed as we were/are.

    Also I LOVE the brown derby at the studios - I would say I prefer it to mama melroses and the 50's primetime. The only negative is that I think they require two meal plan tickets.

    Earl of Sandwich is my all time favorite - great job! everything else looks good.

    If you order the bridesmaid dresses are they returnable if they don't work?

    Ive acftually seen several good reviews of Yak & Yeti.....its not sometihng im dying to do but we are on deluxe and i dont want to waste a table service on a counter and Tusker house sounds disgusting to me......All i really want to try is that wonton desert lol!!! I am very picky and looked at brown derby's menu and i couldnt find one thing i wanted to eat there lol!!! but thats just me :) thanks for the advice though! The lady said today on teh bridesmaid dresses we could send them back for a new size if they were wrong!

    Thats great about the dresses - I would just order them then - I think they are really pretty.

    Is the rainforest cafe part of the meal plan? Animal Kingdom has always been lacking in food choices compared to the other parks. We were at Yak & Yeti the first week it was open - maybe its improved since then. But my understanding from other posts here is that its not a disney owned or operated restaurant - so I don't think the quality control is the same.

    Unfortunately this morning I found out that one of my bridesmaids has cancer :( Right now it is looking like it will be easy to treat and a good outcome but it still came as a total shock. Very unexpected......
