    Today must be my lucky day! I just got LeCellier too!!!! :cool1::banana::yay: I must be dreaming or something! So, do I pay OOP for one of my breakfast buffets? Or do I cancel Cape May? I am not willing to part with CM (obviously) or TH since it took me so long to get either one of them. Help!!!

    YAY! I was wondering if you had been playing around with times since the online ADRs opened. :yay:

    I was able to move my Cape May back a little bit online, but I didn't have any other luck the other day. So, I was bored awhile ago and decided to give it a try. I just couldn't believe my eyes!!! Anyways...we're not going to cancel anything right now. We'll play it by ear I guess. We wouldn't mind paying OOP for one of the breakfasts, but they all have the special "holiday/peak" prices right now which stinks. It's so hard to justify spending over $60 for a breakfast buffet! We'll be celebrating my birthday with my family on Father's Day, so we'll have to see if I get any gift cards. If so, we would use it on that breakfast!!! :rotfl:

    Well, I guess I have to sit down and figure out some new plans. On the 27th, we have TH at 8:20am and now we have LeCellier at 2:55pm. We will definately be hungry by then, but my plans didn't include going to Epcot that evening. Oh well! I guess they do now! I was going to try to go to MK that night (no EMH crowds) to see Wishes. Now we'll have to do MK on it's EMH night, but I don't think we'll be staying there that long. AH!!!! I'm very happy with these ressies, but now I have to re-figure eveything out. Not that I'm complaining! You know I love to plan! :goodvibes It will keep me busy.

    That is quite alright. I'm the same way lately. I've subbed to so many June PTR's, other TR's, official June threads, etc....I just can't seem to keep up!

    I'm super excited for the ressies I got today. Madison is just SO excited about Chef Mickey's, and she's never even been there!

    Yesterday's Answer

    a. Brickley
    Brickley, whose name was chosen from Guest and Cast Member entries in a naming contest, is made up of over one million LEGO bricks.

    One Week Trivia and Fun Facts

    We will be at AK EMH a week from today. So, here's a pic of us from AK back in January.

    [​IMG]

    TRIVIA TIME

    What is the motto of the tour company in Expedition Everest?
    a."There and Back with the Flying Yak"
    b."Ain't No Mountain High Enough"
    c."Wild By Design"
    d."Trust Us"

    DID YOU KNOW?

    60 dump trucks full of dirt were delivered to the AK construction site every day for 2 years straight to create the park's landscape. That's about 4.4 million cubic yards of dirt.

    Fun Fact

    Expedition Everest: See all that firewood on the rooftops? It isn't used for heating or cooking. Wood is scarce high up in the mountains so having a stack of it on your rooftop is an indication of wealth.

    I hope that you all have a great Saturday! It's is pouring rain here and I have to go spend 2 hours outside. Myself and another dance team member have an appearance at the Relay for Life today. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that we'll be under a tent!!!

    I'm loving the trivia. I can't wait to introduce the Dragon to our crew tomorrow night. I'm sorry I'll miss a few days.

    I hope you're able to stay dry.

    By the way TODAY I just figured out your DIS name!!! I finally put it together since you were talking about your b-day! I feel rather foolish ...

    I know we are going to have an amazing time! I've decided to stop reading all the negative/crowded/hot threads on here. It was getting me into a panic! I know it's going to be hot and crowded, but I don't care. We'll be at Disney!!!

    Happy Father's Day and First Day of Summer!!!

    Yesterday's Answer

    a. "There and Back with the Flying Yak"
    The doorway to the entrance to the FASTPASS queue on Expedition Everest bears the red sign of the Himalayan Escapes Tour & Expeditions Company, whose mascot, the winged yak, ties in with the company's slogan. "Trust Us" is from the "Cap'n Bob's Super Safaris" signs you can see posted throughout Harambe in the Africa section of the park.

    A week from today, we'll be at Epcot EMH. As usual, here's a pic from January.

    I just LOVE this picture!

    TRIVIA TIME

    What was used as an inspiration for the ride system in Soarin'?
    a. A child's Erector set
    b. A flight training simulator
    c. An Imagineer's love of hang gliding
    d. A ride an Imagineer saw as a child in Coney Island New York

    DID YOU KNOW???

    One inch of water siphoned off the top of The Living Seas tank would fill a regular-sized swimming pool. That's about 20,000 gallons! The Living Seas tank holds nearly 5,700,000 gallons!!

    FUN FACT

    China Pavillion: Look at the floor as you walk through the front doors of the Beijing Temple. Stand with you feet directly over the center circle in the group of concentric circles and say something, anything. The building is acoustically perfect, causing your voice to vibrate directly back into your ears.

    I hope that you all have a great day! We'll be heading over to my parents house to celebrate Father's Day and my birthday today. Be back later!

    I think Chef Mickey's only serves lunch during free dining, so it's probably breakfast. How exciting. I would pay OOP for one. We did Cape May this last trip and really loved it. The food was really good. In fact I am making myself hungry thinking about it right now. LOL!
    I thought of you yesterday. I went to Old Navy at 12:15 to get some tanks that were on sale, and they had not one left in any size. I was a bit mad though. if they are going to advertise that, they should have enough for ALL day customers. They still had the signs out on the windows too, and the commercial was stil lrunning on TV. And it wasnt available online either. I have to drive 1/2 hour to get there so that made me a little mad, as that was the only reason I went into town. I did buy Claire a pair of shoes there though. But most of the clothes I don't care for and they don't make pants to fit my shape there. LOL!

    Oh, for the trivia I am guessing erector set. I do know they built one as a mdoel for it from an erector set, but not sure if that is the inspiration or not.

    I figured out that our CM ressie is indeed a breakfast slot. I had totally forgotten that CM serves breakfast until 11:30am!

    Sorry about Old Navy! When we had our $1 flip flop event, my store ran out by 11am! It's completely out of our control and it all depends on how many units we get sent from the warehouse. I can tell you that during both the flip flop and tank event at MY store, we had tons of reserves in the back, but even then, we sell out.

    I hope to be back soon with the answer!

    Thank you so much for reading! I can't wait for vacation and I'll definately be writing another TR!

    By the way, I LOVE your avatar! Peach is one of my fav Nemo characters.
