    since kathy shamlessly plugged your report, i figured i would check it out, and it did not dissapoint.

    loved the back and forth between you guys...

    sounds like a smart man, i also married UP and older than me by 17 months

    sounds like the ideal time to flush the toilet.:thumbsup2

    Yea! I've been looking forward to your DR too - along with everyone else on the DIS, it would seem! :rotfl:

    The description you wrote for yourself in the first post almost sounds like you wrote it about me :) I can't wait to see what you guys end up doing over the next 10 days.

    Happy (early) birthday!!! No better way to have it than at Disney :woohoo:

    Hi Nicki, :wave2: I've enjoyed reading your previous reviews and can't wait for this one to begin! My sister and I will be at YC in a few days so maybe we'll run into each other. Hope you have a magical birthday and a delicious trip!

    sounds fun so far...if you haven't done the fork & cinema yet you will love it...you get a buck off for being a passholder but can not book online and get the discount :(...Todd will love taking a nap in those recliners!

    I remember Todd asking a number of times where his cheat sheet was when we were together at dinner(s) last month. I say give him another that will "please you"...he'll never know. :)

    Making dining reservations for us is never what it seems. See in my house I always ask my husband for his opinion and see what he wants, you know, throw a bone to the boy. Problem is we almost never stick to original plans, he wants to cancel something and just walk into another place…and usually he always gets what he wants lol!

    Me: Want to help me plan our meals in WDW?

    Todd: Can I have a root canal instead, you know, something less painful?

    See what I have to put up with?

    In all fairness he does try to help some…problem is he doesn’t know the name of the restaurants, just the food they serve. Secretly I think he is just messing with me! For instance the hibachi place, the place where they have all you can eat crab, the place where we walked to from our resort, the place with the pressed pot of coffee and my sugar coma breakfast…get the picture? And I am supposed to know what the heck he is talking about…I admit, I do…hey you are with someone for 22 years you kinda figure them out.

    Back in April, at my 180 day mark, I thought I had it all planned…everything that he wanted and what I wanted and the time slots…basically it was perfect. Didn’t have any issues with online reservations except I could not book Tutto Italia. When I called the CM couldn’t book it either and it took a few days before I finally scored.

    Fast forward to June and for some reason I decided to look at menus. Most places didn’t appeal to me anymore. I mean San Angel Inn and Nine Dragons (both of which were Todd's choices) just didnt wow me anymore. Before I jumped the gun to cancel them and replace they with 2 of my picks I made the mistake of asking him first.

    Me: Hey hon, can I cancel Nine Dragons and San Angel Inn

    Todd: What are you talking about?

    Me: (Silly me, thinking he automatically knew what I was talking about, does he not know me at all???) Oops sorry, can I cancel Mexican and Chinese in WDW?

    Todd: Sure I don’t care..hey wait a sec, aren't those my 2 picks? Why do you want to cancel the only 2 places I wanted to eat at?

    Oh for Pete's sake, like he didn’t want Cape May Clambake, Kona and Boma breakfast….

    Me: Changed my mind, women's perogative......

    Todd: I dont care, you might wind up changing those again anyways. One question, why the heck do you bother asking me when you are going to do what you want anyways?

    Shoot…he really does know me!

    Do you want to know whats on the agenda? Well I hate to disappoint you all but our arrival dinner is going to be off site. Originally we were going to eat at Boatwrights but I received an email for a free meal at Texas de Brazil and its just 20 minutes from POFQ and it is hands down my new favorite place to eat! We tried the Tampa one in July and we both were in meat heaven! The normal price is $46 per person so a buy one get one free deal is too good to pass up. I hope to take lots of pics there too!

    The rest of the places look like this

    BREAKFAST
    Boma
    Kona
    Olivia's
    Capt Grill
    Tusker House (new for us, just scored the ressie a week ago!)
    Might go to Fresh for breakfast one morning...not many options once we get to the YC

    LUNCH - so far we have just Via Napoli booked but we might walk in to the Plaza, Beaches and Cream, maybe Sci Fi...hey, I am going with the Walk In King...it could happen :thumbsup2

    DINNER
    Citricos
    Il Mulino
    Yachtsman
    Rose & Crown (new to us)
    Teppan Edo
    Tutto Italia
    The Wave
    Cape May Clambake
    Maya Grill (new to us)

    Of course there will be lots of F&W booth items, lots of cocktails, treats, snacks, goodies and POFQ CS choices.

    Should we start taking bets on what we keep and what we add??

    I, for one, am glad you cancelled Boatwrights. We just didn't enjoy it when we went and I did warn you on WCC and you didn't listen to me. lol

    And I won't be on how many get changed or what gets dropped or added since I'll probably have the inside scoop since we talk every day. :lmao::lmao::lmao::lmao:

    Happy Birthday fellow Libra! Subbing as I've always enjoyed your dining reports. May give me some ideas when I plan my 40th trip to WDW in just 2 very short years ;-) Thankfully my hubby is the "older" one by a mere 2 months so we're looking at a dual celebration trip. Have fun!
