Since I learned so much from DISers, I would like to share my experiences and comments of our trip. I don't plan for it to be a comprehensive one, just some obervations of things that came up. Hopefully this will help the next person in planning their trip. If I think of anything else, I may add to it. Thanks! Cafe Orleans for viewing Fantasmic. We ate at Cafe Orleans on the day of arrival, and got the latest possible reservation. The food was great (I had the Monte Christo and the pomme frites). The pomegranate lemonade was awesome! We were able to stay and view Fantasmic from where we were, but missed the stuff on the surface. It was nice to be able to sit down at a table while waiting for Fantasmic, but we missed half the show so I don't think it was worth it. Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique It was totally worth having DD (6) get her hair done. I got the hair and nail package, and purchased the photo package separately. I also got the scepter and glove/bag added. It was totally worth it. i did not see the note in the photo package that said I could get copies of the photos at the Photo store in Main Street (can't remember offhand, I'll add it when I do) until midnight that same day, otherwise I would have gotten more copies of the one large photo (package came with one large photo/1 pose, and 4 4x6s/2 other poses). Oh, and you can buy the bag and sash separately wihtout having to get the service (I seem to remember someone asking that question). Fantasmic Awesome show! Get there early - we were there around 7, and got one of the few remaining spots by the water with a decent view of the main stage (it was off to one side of the stage). People were understanding about one person in the party holding spots for the rest of the party, and there was not a lot of pushing or anything). We saved our spots and took turns getting dinner. Bengal BBQ was not too far away ...! Bengal BBQ - great food! Wish the servings were larger though lol. I did not realize that there was only one stick per serving (I thought there was 2 per serving). Oh well. I got some popcorn and we were ok. World of Color - awesome show! We got the picnic option and it was great. We picked it up around 2:30 so we could make sure we get the blue FPs (we did), took it back to the hotel for our break, and brought it back in. Security allowed it because it was a Disney meal. I just did not want to have it get warm and end up with food poisoning or something. The food was pretty good. Tropicana Inn This is the second time we stayed there, we picked it for its proximity and it was worth it ...! Hotel was decent, hot tub was great for sore feet, and we were glad it was so close as we went to rest in the room and cool off every day. They had a small gift shop and coffee shop on the ground floor, and the hospitality room (with free continental breakfast) was on the 3rd floor.
