    Wow - what a fantastic and yummy looking place...an excellent find!

    And I must say DLRP Fantasyland is so pretty - the MK could use just a bit of that here.

    WOW-Super Wow...Those pictures are so lovely-I looked at them three times...I wish I was there right now...:cloud9:...

    I love the facade of that palace...and that cafe has so much charm...and those desserts look amazing... I think that you are being generous w/ the comparison to Main Street Bakery-the things in there look good-but not as good as those cakes in that cafe...

    I'll bet the coffee was good there too...

    Thanks for your mini TR to Köpenick! The pics are lovely. It is so interesting that they had half pieces; what a great idea! I would always order two half pieces so I could try more!

    The bakery looks absolutely charming, and the cakes delicious!

    I want to try one of those white cakes in the jars!

    I got your PM, I'm just slow at replying - I'll probably reply tomorrow morning when I have a bit of energy...right now I'm barely awake! :laughing:

    That little bakery is so cute!! I love the sugar bowl.

    I think your cake sounds DELISH...yummmm!

    How was the coffee there? Nothing beats coffee with dessert. :rolleyes:

    Hi! I just found your PTR.

    It caught my eye for 2 reasons, 1, a "sister" trip and 2, my brother lives in Bad Windsheim, Ickelheim, so your Nuremburg note in your location caught my eye!

    How lovely to plan a trip with your sister. As a sister myself, there is nothing better than a "sista" trip as we call it. We are still hoping, someday, to do one to WDW.

    I :love: Teva Mush (have a pair)

    and :love: Keens! (have 2. should have 3 but one is mia:confused:)

    I have not seen the canvas tennis shoe version before though, those are absolutely adorable!

    Bring layers, at that time of year you can have swings from 50-80F! We did.

    Loving the report so far. When we visit my brother, likely 2011, I hope to hit DLRP (though am keeping that idea from DH for now lol)

    DLRP is very beautiful indeed! They really tried very hard there to built something that can compete with the real life quaintness of Europe :goodvibes

    It was a beautiful place! The sad thing however was that Köpenick used to be part of East Germany and even twenty years after the fall of the Berlin Wall (that was in November 1989) there were still streets that looked very run down and poor. We still have a far way to go until we reach equal standards of living in the former east and west.

    The coffee was wonderful!! :goodvibes They had gourmet coffee and I had some from a place in Guatemala. :thumbsup2

    I thought the half pieces were such a good idea!

    They look great, don't they? Actually they are just plain meringues. :goodvibes

    It was really difficult to make up my mind on what to order...

    I was so impressed with the level of detail they went into to decorate the place! :thumbsup2

    The sugar bowl was really cute and the amazing thing was: every table had an individual one and all were beautiful!

    Bad Windsheim is really just around the corner of Nuremberg! Visting him should be an interesting trip, there is a lot to see in Bavaria!

    Thanks for the nice comment on my shoes. My DBIL (even though I am not so sure about the D at the moment due to the following comment) said yesterday that they remind him of Samson! :scared1: Samson is the main character in the German version of Sesame Street:

    [​IMG]

    Actually I think there is some truth in it, those Keens are rather wide shoes! :lmao:

    They tasted as good as they looked!

    Sorry!! :goodvibes I think bakeries is really something we are pretty good at here in Germany! For some strange reason however, at the moment American baked goods are becoming very popular. While I love muffins, I am a bit sad if they make tradition German cakes disappear.

    We had a lot of fun! :thumbsup2

    Today it is exactly 6 months until we arrive at WDW (don't know why the ticker says differently :confused3)!!

    In order to be fully prepared I put together a list of films we might want to see before our trip! Some of those we might have seen already, but I tried to put together a comprehensive list as we might want to refresh our memory on the one or the other film. K and I are both customers of a local video store which has an incredible library of films. They started out with VHS tapes in original languages (mainly English) as nearly every film in Germany is dubbed into German. Of course today with DVDs you normally have different languages available, so it is no longer difficult to get to see the original. However, they kept their concept of a film library and you can get nearly everything that exists on DVD. So the list in our wiki only has those films that are available there. The ones that I did not find there were Beauty and the Beast and Swiss Family Robinson, but otherwise that's what we can see before our trip:

    Magic Kingdom
    - Cinderella
    - Snow White
    - Sleping Beauty
    - Alice in Wonderland
    - Peter Pan
    - The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh
    - Aladdin
    - The Little Mermaid
    - Dumbo
    - Pete's Dragon
    - The Sword in the Stone
    - Lilo & Stitch
    - Monsters, Inc.

    Disney's Holywood Studios
    - Donald Short Films
    - Mickey Mouse Short Films
    - Pluto Short Films
    - Silly Symphonies
    - Mary Poppins
    - Toy Story
    - Toy Story 2
    - The Incredibles
    - WALL-E
    - Cars
    - Ratatouille
    - The Wizard of Oz
    - Indiana Jones 1-3
    - Singin' in the Rain
    - Star Wars Episode IV, VI
    - Twilight Zone
    - High School Musical 1-3

    Epcot
    - Three Caballeros
    - Finding Nemo
    - Apollo 13

    Animal Kingdom
    - The Jungle Book
    - A Bug's Life
    - Lion King
    - The Living Desert (that one is only available on VHS tape)

    Miscellaneous
    - Aristocats
    - Bambi
    - The Rescuers
    - Bolt
    - 101 Dalmatians
    - Who Framed Roger Rabbit?
    - Mulan
    - Pocahontas
    - The Lady and The Tramp
    - Enchanted

    Any other recommendations???

    That is quite a list! :) It would easily take me longer than 6 mos to even put a dent in it! Did you have Tinkerbell in the list? I can't remember - I love Tink and I think the movie is so well done. The new one comes out in a few mos so I actually can't wait!! :banana:

    Gute Abend! :)

    That's a great list! I'm going to have to catch a few of those myself. I'm very excited. I've never seen Swiss Family Robinson, and just realized last night that it's going to be playing on Turner Classic movies Friday night. I made sure to set my DVR already.
