    You must meet the main man!!!!!!! I am not a character kind of guy and I think even I have a pic with Mickey somewhere.

    I've been to Conservation Station...I think I last went in 99.

    I've never eaten at Rose and Crown.

    I've never done a pressed penny.

    I don't own a lanyard.

    You've never been on Universe of Energy? It's a 45 minute air-conditioned nap waiting to happen. I've actually gotten on the floor of the car and fallen asleep. I do enjoy the attraction, but if I'm hot and tired, I love going to UoE!!!!!!!

    Chapter 36. Adventures in dogsitting

    So for the last week, we've had the "privilege" of dogsitting for a friend of Leo's. Now don't get me wrong I love dogs, but Chihuahua's....do they really qualify as a dog? It's more like a large rodent. I didn't hate having the dog around and honestly Buddy loved having someone closer to his age. They really had a lot of fun together and the dog was VERY affectionate.

    Her name Chanel...with a crown studded collar...need I say more:

    Trip related info:

    Airfare Roulette
    Kim and Allan have booked their airfare.2/6- Departing EWR 7:00ish arriving in MCO at 10am. 2/14- Departing MCO 6:00pm.....Their flights cost 230something......

    Just waiting for Wendy and Derek to book their airfares...today flight were in the mid-400 range for R/T. :scared1:

    ADR countdown
    Our window opens on Tuesday, October 27th at 3am or 4am PST depending on which method we use....

    Here are Wendy/Dereks' tentative ADRs:
    Sunday, 2/7-6pm The Wave (never been)
    Mon, 2/8-7:15pm Coral Reef (last visit for them: 1996)
    Tues, 2/9-None
    Wed, 2/10-Noon Prime Time Cafe (tradition), 7:00pm Ohana (never been)
    Thur, 2/11-6:00pm Chef Mickey's (never been)
    Fri, 2/12-6:00pm California Grill (been 3-4 times)
    Sat, 2/13-7:00pm Teppan Edo (tradition)

    I think it's a good mix of new restaurants and ones they know they'll like.

    Kim and Allan's ADRs
    Sun, 2/7-the Wave
    mon, 2/8-Coral Reef
    Tues, 2/9-None
    Wed, 2/10-Noon Prime Time, 7pm Ohana (maybe switch out)
    Thurs, 2/11-Date night Jiko?Chefs? Kouzzina?
    Fri, 2/12-6pm Ca Grill
    Sat, 2/13-7pm Teppan Edo

    Almost all TS meals will be with Wendy and family.Kim and Allan will probably switch out Chef Mickey's and have a Valentine's Dinner somewhere nice. I've also volunteered to 2 extra CS meals I have so they could add 1 more TS if they wanted or make another one a 2 TS meal....

    Jordan's ADRs
    2/10-Prime Time
    2/13-Teppan Edo

    I will only have 2 TS meals with the rest of the folks.These 2 will be OOP as I will be on the QSDP not the DDP at this point. For the 4 night solo portion here are my tentative ADRs right now on the DDP:

    2/15-Jiko
    2/16-Kouzzina
    2/17-Lunch-Sanaa

    2/17-Dinner-I am toying with one more TS and paying OOP for this as Jiko is 2TS.........It's a free night for me so I could really eat anywhere......

    Here's my short list:
    Boma (completing the AKL/V Trifecta)
    Rose and Crown
    Le Cellier
    Chefs de France
    Flying Fish
    Raglan Road
    Kona Cafe

    Not sure if this is a done deal. I have a week to think about it....

    I'll post my revised itinerary shortly.

    edit to add:

    I only changed the last 2 full days of my itinerary. Something wasn't quite right and I couldn't figure it out. Then switched some parks around and I left the last night open so I could have the option of going to the park I felt most drawn to. That might be decided for me IF I decide to book and TS ADR for that night, but I can always cancel and just do CS as well...Here's the original version of the last 2 days:

    The old version while having me be able to sleep in on Tuesday had me going to Epcot on an EMH during President's Week. Probably a mistake. It is probably smarter to Epcot the next day. It's also probably smarter to do DHS on Tuesday morning, the day after the DHS Evening EMH.....

    1) soooo good on a hot day. be sure you try it on your next visit!:thumbsup2

    2) I can understand why people don't go on this if they are motion sensitive.

    3) Sacrilege--although I haven't eaten there since 2001 or 2002 myself.

    4) It was better when there was an option to eat at CRT w/o characters....

    10, 9, 8, 7.... You're almost there. I do hope you get your last one nailed down before too long, but your choices look fab. If it were me, which it's not, I'd go with Boma. But that's just me, which it's not.

    Chihuahuas are ummmm... interesting, but will forever be assos. with Taco Bell for me. Forever! That was a high school/ college days sort of thing.

    It's the obvious choice for me because it's right there at AKL/V...we'll see.

    I could see in a smaller apartment with no yard how a smaller dog would be better.....I wouldn't get one, but I am more understanding of it now...

    I think the revised itinerary looks really good. Are you happier with it?

    I think any of those options for your ADR to be decided sound really yummy. It would be neat to complete the AKL Trifecta since you are staying there.

    Oh, Chanel looks like such a cutie! We have never had a small dog -- all of our dogs weigh more than our children. :rotfl:

    Your ADRs and itinerary look good -- no matter which ADRs you decide to go with, they all look delicious!
