    I like pretty simple food, so for me, Plaza is great.

    Good sandwiches and ice cream

    Do you have Friendlys where you live?

    If so, picture food like that, but in a prettier place :goodvibes

    We really liked the Plaza too. It reminds me of going to Big Boy, but the food is much better! You know what you are going to get anf it's a great spot for a breather!

    We looked at both West Chester and Mason when we moved to the area two years ago, but felt like the housing market was just a bit more stable here in Mason so we went with that. I have to say, I am thrilled with the school system here and every day my hubby and I talk about how glad we are to have chosen Mason. Will you move in with them when they buy?

    KI is nothing like Disney, but does have a lot of super fun coasters and a great water park too. Just be ready to see all your students using those Gold Passes as you walk around! We do like La Rosa's Pizza, but Dewey's blows it out of the water! It's in that plaza right across the street from Target by I75. I am sure you know the Target I am talking about. ;)

    Thanks!! I'm assuming it's pretty quick service although a TS based on the menu choices. I can't imagine it would take forever. I'm thinking I'll book an ADR for like 4:15 the day of MVMCP and we can stop on our way in. Last year we went to LTT and of course it took longer bc of the characters but it sounds like a safe bet!

    We don't have Friendlys here but I've been to one when I lived in FL, they have pretty good meal deals, similar to Steak n Shake!!

    Thanks! As I was packing up my room over the weekend, I found some older albums and thought why not take pics of the pics!

    Oh good call! I would compare it to Big Boy too based on the menu!! I think a quick sit down bite to eat would be great before we begin MVMCP or if not, I'll cancel it and we'll have a big lunch at WL-roaring forks before heading to MK and grab dinner throughout the night (dbro :love: casey's!!)

    I will move in with my parents. I was looking at apts in Hamilton and found a great one but my parents believe that it would be to my benefit to just stay with them and save the money and in a year it could be over $5,000 depending on how much I save plus they are hoping I can take a few days off unpaid in the spring to go to WDW to work and keep my status :rotfl2: and then I won't have to worry about paying rent and they are happy too haha. Funny how I have always heard "when are you getting a job and moving out" and as soon as I do and want to they are against it haha!

    I'll have to try that pizza! Dbro liked that they had Skyline at KI! :thumbsup2:

    I really like the Plaza! Simple, but good food. I've been reading about people making their reservations at 3am or 4am! Maybe I will stay up late, JUST in case!! I've discovered that if I sit in the wayyyyy far corner of the apartment, the internet actually works a little better! Slow, but better than nothing. I've never done online ADR's so I can't help you out there. Love the old pics!

    I've been away for the weekend and am just now getting caught up! Good luck with your ADR's!! There are some that seem to be heavily requested! Mama Melrose's is one we do every trip and I had trouble getting that one for the first time ever! I'd go on and play with it and see which ones seem to be getting booked already and book those first!

    Ya I've decided to just go just go ahead and book it and I can always cancel it!

    I'm not sure if I want to stay up for not :rotfl2: It will depend on what time I'm working Friday. I'm hoping the CM will be able to link the resort ressies so I can book everything at once and if not, I'll take my chances and get up again on Sat. Dd said the only way I could be "screwed" is if anyone from the week before was able to book for the weekend but most people check in on Fri, Sat, and Sun's so hopefully I'll be fine?!

    Thanks for the advice!! I have a pretty good game plan and we'll see if it works out. Dd is getting pysched bc he mentioned last night "DON'T FORGET TO GET UP ON FRIDAY TO BOOK THOSE ADRS!!!!!"...hehe :thumbsup2:

    Hdjhasjdsjdjsdkfjsdjdfkjsdfl I am so stressed! Can't figure out if I want to do MVMCP or not and I can't book my ADR's if I don't know b/c if I don't do the party on the 10th then I will go on a different day when it has normal hours....Did you decide for sure what ADR's you want?

    ADR EVE!!!!!!

    Yay!! Tomorrow at this time I will be HAPPY :cool1: or :sad2: because I have to wait until Saturday to book the rest of my ADRs.

    I got soooo excited last night and was ready to hang my Mickey Countdown only to find that I don't have tape :rotfl2: so well I'll be getting that tonight.

    I was going to post this tonight but I'm still feeling :sick: even with 2 meds in me so I'm heading back to the local Urgent Care and they said I need to see a Dr. AGAIN but they will wave the Copay so depending on what time I get out of there and get new meds, I figured, I'd better post now because I'll be heading to bed early for 6am!

    Pretty much here is my list of ADRs I want and I'll repost them after I get everything finalized!!:

    Fri Dec 11: 50s Prime Time (dinner)
    Desired: 5:30pm

    Sat Dec 12: China-Nine Dragons (early dinner for CLP and 6:45 show)
    Desired: 4:30pm

    Sun Dec 13: The Plaza (early dinner before MVMCP begins)
    Desired: 4:15pm

    Mon Dec 14: 50s Prime Time (lunch if can't get dinner)
    Desired: 1:30pm

    Mon Dec 14: Artist Point (early dinner before EMH at MK)
    Desired: 5:30pm

    Tues Dec 15: Ohana (late breakfast)
    Desired: 10am

    We'll see what happens! If for some reason the CM ddp pops up I'll add it but I doubt it will because of free dining. I'll be lucky if we'll be able to use my 50% off coupons for the Holiday Package. My former roomie Elyse (living in CA now) said she'll give me her coupons for 50% off since you can't use them in DL!!!:cool1:

    so..we might adjust some things since I can't use the coupon for CLP.

    Well, I'm off to work now. I might adjust this and add times later but I can't be late for the kiddos so I'm off!!!

    Your choices look good! Hope you get all that you are looking for! Can't wait to see what you end up with. That will be even better if they do the CM DDP! Best of luck!

    Those look like great ADR choices! Most look like they won't be too hard to get. I'll keep my fingers crossed that you are able to do all the booking tomorrow!

    BTW, I was driving by a nuimber of the private schools here today and was trying to figure out which one you were at. I'm sorry, that makes me sound a bit stalkerish. :lmao:

    You're doing 50's PTC twice?! I've never been but I really have no desire to go. But seeing as you are doing it two times in the same short trip makes me wonder...Oh NO not another decision to make!!! LOL!

    All the other choices look yummy. I've never done Ohana for breakfast but it is my favorite dinner of all time :)

    Cya up bright and early :) Hope ya get what you want!!

    No no haha. I made my list of ADRs if we were on a DDP and not and not using a coupon and paying full price so if I don't have any discounts we'll go for lunch and not do Artist Point and if we are, we'll do 50s for dinner so I'm being bad and double booking but will for sure cancel by mid October once I get my holiday package!

    but it is very good although my dad calls it "expensive food you can get at a cracker barrel!"

    Thanks! Stay tuned!!!


    I know, we were able to add on the CM DDP last year but with free dining this year, I doubt they will although they would make money but they will also make money by paying full price for meals too :sad2: We shall see!!!
