My DH usually throws a wrench into my carefully laid plans, too -- I think he thinks he is showing an interest or something!

What days are your ressies for Tusker House and Crystal Palace? We are doing those also.

We ate at the Princess Storybook Breakfast in Norway in 2004 and loved it! Great interaction with all the princesses!

Quick question for you....How long is the drive from Atlanta to WDW? I haven't got to this yet in my PTR, but after our week in WDW, just me, DH and the kids are driving to Marietta, GA from WDW to spend a week there with DH's family. What kind of drive are we looking at?
Can't wait to hear more about your trip!
I posted over on your PTR about the drive time

Friday for Tusker house and Wednesday for CP lunch..

Emma is soo excited to eat with the princesses. I just hope we get the big timers and no offense, but I think we will be dissappointed if it is Mulan or Mary poppins , Alice instead of Sleeping beauty etc...

Hurray for 2nd place in the league! That's great!

We have Tusker House Tuesday and CP Wednesday night.

When we ate at the Princess thing we had Belle, Sleeping Beauty, Mulan, Snow White, and Jasmine. I'll throw some pixie dust your way for the big ones!

Just read your pre-trippie and your plans sound like mine. (as far as rescheduling) I was wanting to take my DD8 down to the World in Sept also, to take advantage of free dining. But, with a trip to Mexico in July, and two other kids that I would be leaving at home, there was no way. Thank goodness I didn't tell DD about "the plan". Can't wait to hear more. You will love POR. We stayed there during our last trip and will probably end up there in June 2009. We are a family of 5 also, and POR seems to have the best set up for that size a family. Unless you can afford Deluxe. Still, my middle child is a DS also, 14 yr old, and 6'4! Last time he slept on the trundle bed. This time I'm not sure where we'll put him.

I am very excited for POR.. the kids have seen pictures of the pool and slide and are also excited! Yes I don't think your DS will be very comfortable on the trundle anymore

We are in the teens... 19 days baby!




Thanks again to those following along, this really is alot of fun!

So I had so much fun reading the menus and looking over all the food porn
And deciding where we would like to try and eat!

It was so hard to narrow it all down, b/c I did get lucky with all the orginal ADRís that I had made.

So here is what the final ADR's looks like

June 8 Sunday arrival day= Ohanaís for dinner celebrate hubbies bday

Monday= BBB for the girls,and lunch at PSB

Tuesday = lunch at SCI-Fi

Wednesday= lunch at Crystal Palace

Thursday= nothing planned probably do DTD or try and do beaches and cream

Friday= Tusker House breakfast , can do lunch at Yak and Yati if we decide also

Saturday= lunch at Le Cellier early fatherís day celebration can do dinner at Plaza if like

Sunday= can do lunch at plaza if like, Dinner at Kona for Fatherís day

So that about sums it all up for the ADR portion!

I am a big foodie and very excited to try all of these, I have only ever been to crystal palace and sci fi before.

So what do you think? Did we do good?

up next will be our park schedule..

Just found your PTR - loving it! It's always so nice to find others with DH's who think all the planning and obsessing is just crazy! They just don't get it

You are a better woman than me when it comes to ADR's - I just talked about the various restaurant options so much that DH finally said I should just pick the places I wanted to go He's actually not all that picky but I had my heart set on some places and I didn't want him to say he didn't think he'd really like those places i would afterall have then been feeling guilty if I still made him go or disappointed and unhappy if I changed to someplace else. Luckily, it all seems to have worked out in my favor

Hope you are considering a Trip Report - DS is 4 and I always like to hear about other trips with the same age children.

ADRs look good!!! I know what you mean about the food porn!! I have to make sure I am looking on a full stomach, otherwise I will go crazy with hunger and food lust!

Are you doing BBB at the castle on the 9th? We are too!!! Maddie and Megan are going at 12:40pm--will our paths cross? We have them both booked for the Crown package--but I think I might not even need that for Megan. All she wants is her hair, makeup done, and nails painted. I think the crown package is some type of fake nails applied. She won't like that--to much sensory overload for her. Do you know OR ANYONE ELSE if I have described it correctly?

Good looking ADRs! I love looking at the menus and food porn -- it's amazing how good food looks when you know it is WDW food!

Let me dance with you, because, you know, if you are at 19 days, that must mean I am at 19 days, too!

Whoo Hoo to you doing the Teen Countdown! That is great!

Your ADRs look delish! I love Le Cellier and have always wanted to try Kona. We loved CP for breakfast and enjoyed Ohana in the past too. I think they sound wonderful!
