    Hi! Thanks for reading. :) Kohl's is definitely the place to go! :rotfl: I always find Disney shirts there. They have two more Mickey and Tink shirts that I want! And they're always on sale super cheap!

    I switched to AKL. I love animals and that seemed like the logical choice. Plus it was saving me a little bit of money. :thumbsup2 I would LOVE to stay near the Boardwalk area....Yacht & Beach Club :faint: One day I will...it was just too out of my price range for this trip!

    I'm going to be doing the same thing! DBf is going to think I'm nuts. He already does because we're sitting with a bunch of people at dinner on DCL that I met on our cruise meet thread! :rotfl: I wish they would hurry up too!!!

    I just bought my first items for the goody bags I'm making for the FE! I would post pictures but some of my cruise meet friends read this. ;) I hope you all like everything that I'm planning on getting!!

    This was just a mini-update. :)

    Taking a page out of Stacy's (FutureDis) book, I just ordered this from Vera Bradley. http://www.verabradley.com/Site/Store/ProductDetail.aspx?Sku=246& I have a million lanyards from AAA so I'm probably going to attach it to one and put our room keys and whatever cash we need in it. :thumbsup2 I got it in a retired color (peacock) and the shipping was more than the case itself!

    Ok, since I have something to work with I figured I'd post! It's been awhile. Even though the park hours aren't "official" yet, they're the best I got. So here goes with the planning!


    9/20 - We'll be staying in Brunswick, GA overnight to break up the drive. We'll probably leave there around 9 and try to get into WDW between 1 and 2. Maybe stopping for lunch along the way. After we check in at POR, off to DHS we go!
    Dinner at Sci Fi (Joe really wants to go) or 50s PT. Whichever I can get.
    EMH at MK if we're not too worn out.

    9/21 - AK Day! Breakfast at Tusker House. Donald, here we come!
    Lunch will probably be counter service. Can anyone recommend a good CS spot in AK?
    Dinner at Ohana's
    Over to MK for Wishes

    9/22 - DHS in the morning to hit anything we didn't do the first day. I want to get over to MK afterward so I can see the new parade and then it's MNSSHP!
    Lunch and dinner will most likely both be CS. We always do Pecos Bill's at MK. Any recommendations for DHS?

    9/23 - EPCOT! CS lunch at Sunshine Seasons because I've heard so many good things about it.
    Dinner at Le Cellier. Keep your fingers crossed for this one.

    9/24 - Breakfast at Captain Cooke's. Joe has no choice but to order Tonga Toast. :rotfl: Then we head on over to the Disney Wonder!

    9/24-9/27 Smooth sailing! :cool2:

    9/27 - Check in AKV!!!!
    Blizzard Beach and/or Typhoon Lagoon. Probably mini-golfing too! This is our relaxing/recreational day.
    Dinner at Hoop Dee Doo Review. Question, will they let me park at WL for this and take the ferry over to FW? I want to take pictures of WL since I was looking into staying there too.

    9/28 - EPCOT for F&WF. Lunch at San Angel Inn. Joe will never forgive me if we skip that one.

    9/29 - MK in the morning for a couple hours. It's tradition to go there on the last day. And then we leave. :guilty:



    I'd appreciate any suggestions and/or feedback!

    My sister and I are staying at POR for our trip, doing AK on the 21st and MNSSHP on the 22nd too. Crazy! So... how do you feel about LGMHs? :rotfl2:

    Hey! Your plans look great! :thumbsup2 We might run into each other on the 22nd...we're planning on that being our DHS day. :goodvibes DHS is Michael's favorite park! AK has really great CS restaurants. I went to Flame Tree BBQ last time, and it was yummy--but a little on the heavy side in my opinion. This time, we're either going to Pizzafari (I hear the sandwiches are awesome) or we'll try the picnic. Good luck getting everything you want!! :woohoo:

    I've heard of Flame Tree BBQ but I am not much of a BBQ gal. I'll have to check out some of the menus on the DIS website. If you see me at DHS, say hello! :) Good luck with your ADRS! I'm going to try the online system to get them...

    Your plans look great! My suggestion for a CS at DHS is Pizza Planet, it isn't the best pizza but I thought it was pretty good.

    That's what I was thinking. My DBf LOVES Toy Story so even if the food is bad, we'll still have fun! :rotfl:

    It's only 3 weeks. I just think of it this way: we've already waited this long. A few more weeks won't kill us. It brings us that much closer to the trip, right? :thumbsup2

    Jenny, the plan looks amazing! It seems like you have everything figured out.

    I wouldn't worry too much about planning the CS before you go, just see where you are when you're hungry! :laughing:

    I can't wait for this trip and I'm not even going!!!!!

    We'll take you with us! :rotfl: Pick you up on the way there!

    I'm not sure about AK but I think we're going to do Pizza Planet at DHS. I heard the pizza isn't great but Joe LOVES Toy Story so I'm sure he'll be thrilled.

    ME TOO! I saw the trailer for it before Night at the Museum 2 and yelled HARRY! in the middle of the theater. :rotfl:

    Here's a little break from planning. I'm going nostalgic on all of you. I went to see NKOTB this past Saturday and am going AGAIN this Saturday. This will be my 5th show since they reunited. Yes, I am obsessed. My love of them rivals my love of Disney. :) Here you go!

    This sign pretty much says it all!

    The Jabbawockeez were the opening act. They rock.
