    That LILO dress is so cute! So talented! I might be sending you a PM again about something else. It's perfect and Maddie's looks like she loves it!

    I am loving the pictures of Maddie in her Ohana dress. She is the perfect model. And how cute is she doing the hula.

    When I saw you were at 17 pages I went with the links! :thumbsup2 Your sagas sound like mine! Just this past week I had an interesting encounter with CMs...and it really made me question calling Disney directly and the responses you get! Your ADRs look great and I think your (well, I guess it was Maddie's!) to change to the Royal Rooms at POR was a wise move. We walked to AOA in October and when I saw the distance, I knew Little Mermaid rooms would not be found on my list!

    Great job on the dress!! And love the shopping spree photos! Also love the game although I missed out on that reading links only...and so late!!

    Wow, tell Bryan that the bracket looks great! Very professional!

    Now our first trip isn't until September, so I'm not sure if I'm really allowed to vote since I haven't actually been to any of the restaurants. But I would love to continue on with the fun so I'm going to anyway.... no problem if you don't want to count my votes! :blush: I'll vote based on what I've read in TRs, pics, menus, etc and most of all.... the ADRs that I'm hoping to get for our trip! :cheer2:

    Chef Mickey

    Flame Tree BBQ

    Ohana

    As for your Day One ADR, I think you'll want to start off your trip with some characters.... maybe some fun stepsisters. :crazy: So my guess is for 1900 Park Fare.

    Even if you aren't playing the ADR game, you can still vote in the Tournament of Food! I'll mark down a vote for Flame Tree for you!

    Too funny. We had a similar incident with a girl in Maddie's preschool class. Maddie wasn't allowed to wear Rapunzel shirts because she called the movie 'Rapunzel' not 'Tangled' and a true fan would know the name of the movie.

    I told Maddie to tell mean girl that she's met Rapunzel and that Rapunzel said she could call it whatever she wants and wear the shirts with pride. :rotfl:
    So, I guess I took a pass on the high road too.

    I'm not crazy about the BBB tutu, but I do think we'll buy the T-shirt this time. Maddie would love to have it to wear to dance/gymnastics as a cover up.

    It's always just this once isn't it? :rotfl:


    I'd say vote for the one that you'd most like to try. :thumbsup2

    Your vote is noted! Thanks for playing!

    Thank you!


    Thanks! Doesn't look like we'll have any 1-16 upsets. :rotfl:

    She's excited about the dress!


    Thank you! That is the funniest think I've ever heard. I think she's right on! It does look like Dora on vacation!

    Thanks for voting and guessing Karen!

    There will be lots of opportunity to score more points!

    Thank you so much!


    :lmao: Your votes have been noted.

    In Round 2 we're just guessing which of the restaurants we'll be eating in on a particular day.


    Thank you! And thanks for playing and guessing!

    Thanks for playing and voting Mel!

    Thank you for playing! We have done 1900 PF as our first night's meal in the past...:goodvibes

    Thank you!

    Thanks for playing and voting too!

    Don't be afraid to try to learn to sew! 3 years ago learning was my New Years Resolution. I bought Sewing for Dummies and made dress up clothes to learn. It's fun!

    Thanks for playing and guessing!

    Thanks for playing! and for guessing!

    I sent you a PM (I hope it was you!). There is a chance that I'll open an Etsy shop eventually. If there's anything in particular that you're looking for let me know. I may be able to help!

    Thank you for de-lurking! I appreciate it, now don't be afraid to speak up okay?

    Thanks for the positive review of POR-we're getting really excited about it!

    And, thanks for playing!

    Thanks for joining in! What a hassle for nothing huh? I'm glad that you had a TA to jump through the hoops for you-it was awful.

    I hope you'll stick around!

    We have to overlap one of these days! Even if it's just for the moms. :goodvibes

    You know I'm gonna try to get those PJs for you. Maybe not this week though as we're supposed to get even more snow tonight and tomorrow :scared1: Maddie's school already cancelled for tomorrow and it hasn't even started!

    Thanks for playing Amanda!

    Thanks for playing along! I'll be in touch shortly about the something else ;)

    Thanks for playing and voting! I hope it will be fun for everyone!

    Thanks Kathy! I can't wait for her to wear it to meet Lilo!

    I don't blame you for using the links! Thanks for joining in! I still have to get caught up on your TRs :blush:

    Thank you! I did! I was so excited that Kristen won! That was one of my favorite finales in a very long time

    Thanks for playing along! Great choices!

    Thank you! That's so sweet. Maddie will be thrilled.:goodvibes

    I think you should vote on where you'd like to eat. And since I'm making the rules here-your votes totally count.:goodvibes

    Thanks for the kind words. We're pretty competitive around here-that may or may not have been Bryan's first attempt at bracketology. :rotfl:

    So sorry I've been MIA everyone. Last week I was under the weather, and the sewing projects are piling up! It's a lot of fun though and I'm excited to help some of you out with cool Disney outfits!

    I'm going to close the voting on this round of the Tournament of Food tomorrow night, and at that time we'll start voting on the 2-15 match-ups.

    Guesses for the Guess my ADR game can be submitted until next week. At that time I'll let you in on our first day's plans!

    Have a great Tuesday everyone! We'll be hunkered down at home since we're expected to get another foot of snow tonight. Isn't is March? :sad2:

    I'll gladly take your foot of snow. We're expected to get 2 - 5 inches of snow with some ice to go with it. :sad2:

    March often gets the worse snow storms. You think winter is over, and than BAM! Biggest snowfall of the year.

    Well friends, the results are in and not surprisingly we didn't have any 1-16 upsets.

    The resounding winners advancing to the next round are:

    Signature and Celebrity Chef

    California Grill


    [​IMG]



    Character and Dinner Show

    Chef Mickey

    [​IMG]



    Counter Service

    Flame Tree BBQ


    [​IMG]



    Table Service

    'Ohana

    [​IMG]


    This is what the updated bracket looks like:



    [​IMG]


    (Thanks to my awesome hubby for keeping it updated and awesome looking for me!)


    I think as we get into the later match-ups we'll have some real horseraces.


    This week we'll be voting on the 2-15 match-ups:


    Signature and Celebrity Chef

    Le Cellier vs. Shula's (has anyone actually eaten here?)



    Character and Dinner Shows

    Crystal Palace vs. Perfectly Princess Tea



    Counter Service

    Be Our Guest vs. Everything POP



    Table Service

    Via Napoli vs. Cape May Cafe



    Vote on the restaurant that you like the best, and if you haven't visited either (or any) feel free to vote on the one that you'd most like to try! This isn't an exact science, it's just some Disney Dining lovers having some fun!


    In other news I've been sewing my fingers off and should have more outfits to share with you all next week.


    I guess that's all for this week guys-if you live in the midwest, stay warm!

    The high road is for other people :thumbsup2 lol

    And in 2011 we decided to go on a "once in a lifetime" family vacation to Disney World. Mike & I had both been in the past separately, dd had never been. It was going to be our one big hurrah, and well...here we are about to embark on our 3rd annual in a couple months! :)

    I've eaten at each restaurant I voted for, but the only matchup where I've gone to both was BoG vs. Pop... and as much as I love Everything Pop, it ain't even close. :thumbsup2

    I don't care how good the restaurants might be, at this point I have absolutely zero interest in going to the Swan & Dolphin for anything.

    I was actually tempted to vote for Everything POP because 1. it's an excellent food court and 2. I feel Be Our Guest will get very far (if not win) for table-service.

    I ate at Cape May Cafe and Via Napoli this past trip and Via Napoli wins by a mile!!!
