Emcreative --

Congratulations on your adoption! That is wonderful! I did adoption law for 10 years and loved it. What a wonderful way to grow your family. My sister and her DH are in the process of adopting their precious 3 year old foster daughter, and it's something we have looked into, as well.

WDW will be a wonderful place to celebrate such a happy occasion!

Stephanie

Thank you for posting this! I just realized I never called T-Rex! haha

So my last ressie (or advanced seating) is T-Rex @ 12:00 on July 30th. Our last day.

I think I'm going to have to change my Rose and Crown ADR. 7:00 just seems way to early for my chances of seeing Illuminations. I'm going to call back this afternoon and see if anything for a later time has opened up, although I doubt it. I looked at my itinerary, and there actually is another night that we plan on being in Epcot at dinner time (although most nights we end up in Epcot). So I'll call and see if I can get a later time for that date too. I know I should just see about making a ressier for 3 instead of 2 but I just don't feel comfortable doing it. I know people do it all the time and the reservation people even suggest it but I just feel funny about it...like I'd be cheating somehow.

LOL Yes, sorry, I meant July 20-24. Before I could edit the toddler decided to take a tumble and this is the first I could get back.

Thanks so much for all your well wishes. We are a foster family and feel so blessed, we figured it would be YEARS before we were lucky enough to adopt. Our first placement (a newborn) will be the first adoption. He turns 1 on Friday. His bio brother joined us in February (he'll be 2 in May, yes, they are only 11 mos apart) so his adoption will take a bit longer.

We went to Disney as a "Family Honeymoon" (I had three daughters when I married my husband) so when we wanted a way to celebrated our new sons, I knew it had to be Disney! And as soon as I called the travel agent I came back here!

Now I have to figure out what "special" things to do! We are doing dinner in Cinderella's castle again and the in-laws (who have never been to Disney) want to do Cirque...any other ideas? We're doing 5 days-4 nights with a park hopper and staying at All Star Music.

Congratulations emcreative!

make sure you let the CMs know that you are celebrating when you book your ADRs, maybe the restaurant servers can sprinkle a little extra magic on your family

have you considered one of the fireworks cruises as something special to do?

Poor hubby, he thought he was covering the anniversary this year but we'll miss it by a few days, lol!

We definitely want to do a character meal (besides cinderella dinner) this time.

Which one would y'all suggest? I'm thinking a breakfast maybe? Oh and if you know how many it "uses" on the dining plan that would be helpful, too.

We love Crystal Palace for breakfast. It is a really nice buffet. I believe it is only 1 TS.

We liked Chef Mickey's and Crystal Palace breakfasts last year. All of the character dinings besides Cinderella's Royal Table and Mickey's Backyard BBQ are 1 TS, those two are 2 TS's. I don't think you can really go wrong with the breakfasts, most of them have pretty standard breakfast buffet fare!

And you could always tell them when booking ADR's that it's your anniversary. They don't need to know dates!

Has anyone done the Ohana breakfast? We are thinking about that one as the middle girl is a stitch lover, and with two mini's I kinda like the idea of them passing the food to us rather than trooping the kids up for the food.
