    ADR's, They Are A'Changing

    When I got home from work today, I decided to call Disney dining. When I told the CM I was looking for places like LeCellier, CM and TH, he told me, "That will never happen, but we'll give it a look." I told him I had been trying for awhile and I was going to keep calling back in case of cancellations. Anyways.....there was no availability at LeCellier or CM (major bummer), but I got a bfast ADR for TH!!!! :banana: I was beyond excited. I know that Daisy is usually there and she's one of the characters Madison has never had a chance to meet.

    After I got off the phone, I had totally forgotten to check to see if I could move my Sci-Fi ressie. I really don't want to eat dinner at 3:40pm. That's not considered dinner in my book. That's a very late lunch! They had no availability for later that day, but they had a time of 6:55pm on......JUNE 24TH!!!!! My birthday!! Woo hoo!!! :cool1::yay::dance3::woohoo: I was thrilled! I really wanted to eat somewhere on my birthday and I think Sci-Fi will be great. I haven't eaten there in years and I can't wait for one of those delicious milkshakes!! So, here are my new ADR's:

    6/24 - Sci Fi Dine In @ 6:55pm (DHS has EMH that night too!)
    6/25 - Kona Cafe @ 10:15am (MK has AM EMH)
    6/26 - Rose & Crown @ 4:45pm (MK has PM EMH)
    6/27 - Tusker House @ 8:20am (AK has AM EMH)
    6/28 - Cape May Cafe @ 9:40am (EP has AM EMH)

    We only have 4 TS credits, so I might be cancelling Rose & Crown. Either that, or we'll pay OOP for one of our meals. I really wanted to eat dinner at the MK or one of the MK resorts on the 26th (MK PM EMH), but I don't really like my options. We liked CP for breakfast, but I'm not real keen on dinner buffets. I've never eaten at Tony's or the Plaza, but their menus aren't making my excited. Ohana seems nice, but we're already eating at the Poly once. I can't get into CM for any of my dates and we don't want to do Cali Grill (too fancy for us on a family vaca). At the GF, I've eaten at Narcoossee's before but none of the other places. I've heard mixed reviews about 1900 Park Fare, but I'd love to dine with the Step Sisters!

    Also, I got Mickey Mail today!! :yay: I like all the things you get with your package but I don't see us going to the arcade at all or even Planet Hollywood. We have one across the border in Niagara Falls, so that's not a big deal to us. I still have to try and figure out when we're going to go to DTD. I'm thinking possibly the 27th in the afternoon/evening. There is no PM EMH anywhere that night so maybe we'll do some shopping (it's our last night). I just have to see Wishes that night too!!!

    Yay for getting into TH!! :yay: That's so exciting that Madison will get to see Daisy. She is such a rare character. And your other ADRs look great. Who knows--maybe you'll be able to get into Le Cellier after all! Your new shirt is adorable as well. I'm thinking about doing some more Disney shopping soon. I probably shouldn't since it's not til Sept, but we'll see. ;) Oh--and we ate at Tony's in 2006, and it was really good. Just fyi.

    We're pretty excited about TH. We are a breakfast loving family! We get our money's worth on those breakfast buffets. :goodvibes My friend just went to WDW 2 weeks ago. I saw her pics on facebook and they saw Daisy 3 times!!! She was outside Epcot and the MK when they arrived at those parks and they ate at TH. I was so jealous! I'm not giving up on CM or LeCellier, but I'm very happy with my ADR's. I may have to give Tony's a try, but we'll see.

    I do love my new shirt. Now I have to decide what to wear on my birthday! We just got this dress in today at Old Navy and I think it's so cute! I like the blue floral print.

    http://oldnavy.gap.com/browse/product.do?cid=15292&vid=1&pid=662303&scid=662303002


    Or, I have this dress, but it's an all over black and white floral print (they don't have that style online I guess!). I know it says it's a swim cover-up, but I would totally wear it with some black cropped leggings!

    http://oldnavy.gap.com/browse/product.do?cid=5408&vid=1&pid=653575&scid=653575022

    There could be more purchases in my future! My DH would like to go shopping for some new stuff, so maybe we'll go tomorrow. I really don't like to shop on the weekends, but I will if I have to! I think we're also going to go see "UP". How exciting!

    Ok, I'm all caught up.

    Love your clothes. Wish I could wear such cute stuff, but I'm too old and heavy.

    Now that your ADR have changed not sure where you'll be and when but here's out plans.

    6/24 Mk with dinner at 'Ohana
    6/25 AK with dinner at 1900 Park Fare
    6/26 Epcot breakfast Storybook dinning and dinner Biergarten
    6/27 Mk with dinner at LTT
    6/28 DS with a very early dinner at 50s Prime time.

    I'm not planning on any morning EMH but may hop and hit some nighttime EMH.

    We'll probably hit the resort for mid day breaks. I'm taking my older sister and her 9 year old daughter. Girls only trip! Our daughters are 10 days apart.

    Hi Meghan!!! I just read your trip report, I'm glad you let me know about it.

    First things first, if you are going to pay out of pocket, I suggest paying for Sci-Fi, there menu items tend to be a little cheaper OR pay for breakfast at TH.

    We are also eating Kona Cafe, but for dinner. We have eaten there for breakfast before and I had the Tonga Toast, it was amazing! :love:

    Madison is just downright adorable and her in that Irish dress is just precious! I know exactly how you feel about your dd doing something along the same lines that you did/do. My dd, Kerry, does gymnastics. The same thing I did growing up, but she is way, way better than I ever was. I am in awe of her. I can watch her practice for hours on end and I never get bored. And when she compete, I can barely breathe! :laughing:

    As for your clothes, loves the shirts. They are all super cute. The one flip flop shirt that you have for Madison looks just like a tank I bought for Kerry but I got it at Justice. It has flip flop prints all over it too.

    In regards to Le Cellier, never give up! That ADR could come about, you never know. The shame of it all is we once had an ADR for 8 people and I reduced the ADR down to 4 - if I had only knew back when I did it. Point of the story, don't give up!:wizard:

    Thanks! I have had a lot of fun shopping for this trip, even though I told my DH that I wouldn't! Where are you staying?

    Thanks for reading! I love that Madison likes to dance. It makes me so happy! :goodvibes I'm leaning towards cancelling R&C. I made that ressie just to have a 4th TS awhile back. I'm on the fence about it. I'm definately getting the Tonga Toast at Kona!!!! It sounds too good to pass up. I'm not giving up on LeCellier, but if we don't eat there on this trip, it's a must on the next one. I'm very happy with the ADR's I have, so that's good. I'll be at Disney and nothing can ruin that!

    I do think that I read that already, but I was having a brain freeze last night! We paid for preferred and I've requested the 60's section, poolside.

    Yea!!! Are you going to be staying for EMH?

    Sorry! I'm not supposed to be shopping, but I did just go through all my clothes recently. I gave 3 bags of clothes to Goodwill!

    You sound like my 18 year old daughter. She has stuff in her closet she has never worn. I can't really complain because she buys her own stuff. She's a waitress, lives at home and just finished her fist year of college. Loves to shop!

    I think I've worn almost everything that I own, but I have a tendency to hold onto things for too long. I don't clean out my wardrobe very often, so when I do, I have so much stuff!

    Awesome! We'll have to look for each other. I really wanted to be at MK for my birthday to see Wishes, but that's ok. Maybe we'll go to MK after we check in at POP and then head over to DHS before our ressie.

    I just might have to do that. There's nothing like walking down Main Street!

    Thanks for reading! We are all so excited for this upcoming trip. I cannot believe that today is the first day of June! I feel like we just got back from our January trip!! Dance is my passion. I know that it will be a part of my life forever. There is nothing greater than walking into dance class after a long, hard day.

    Wow, I missed so much after only a few days away from the DIS!

    That's awesome about your ADR at TH! You'll have to let me know how it is. We might try it in November. I'm still trying for my Ohana' ADR for the 12th. I can't believe I finally get to say THIS MONTH!

    I just cleaned out my colthes too. I got rid of lots of old 'work-out' clothes and old t-shirts that have seen better days. Goodwill will be getting a nice bag from my house too!
    Oh, and my aunt got me the cutest Mickey tee from Forever 21. It's a racer back kinda flowy t-shirt. It's too cute! I was at Aeropostale on Friday also! I might've seen you! I picked up some of the sundresses for $10 each. Can't beat that.

    I am super pumped about TH (and so is Madison). I will post about all of our ADR's in my TR. I'm even thinking about doing a dining report too! I've been over on those boards a lot lately! We'll see though. I tried on a few of those dresses at Aero, but they weren't fitting me quite how I wanted them too. Oh well! Actually, I was at Aero last Tues and Thurs. I am definately not allowing myself to go to the mall again for awhile! :rotfl: But, on the other hand, I'm working at ON this Tuesday and Thursday, so I might not have as much self-control!
