Is Tam O'Shanter's on the tour now? We did it on our own when we went in 2010 but I noticed that it seems that some of the groups are now going on the tour.

I need to go look up Storytellers Cafe though. Never heard of it! But if there's food and characters I'm sure that I'll be more than happy.

Hugs all around!
Yes! The Tam is part of the Adventure.

Storyteller's is in the Grand Californian and I think you had your Farewell Breakfast there last time.

Excited about Tam. Really had a great experience there, and that was without you guys so I know it's going to be ever better!

You're so right about Storytellers! I went and looked up some photos and it brought it all back.

This has nothing to do with nothing, but the RunDisney rumor mill is that they are going to announce a 1/2 marathon for Disneyland Paris. Did I miss the memo where it's National Torture Lauren Day?

The Farewell Breakfast can be a rushed affair. In fact some guests dont even attend due to flight schedules.
Makes sense- we'll be right there in the Grand Californian.

We've eaten there twice- and I had good experiences there both times. No problem- I just thought it was odd to repeat a restaurant.

LOVE that they added a Cars Land experience!! This will be new to us!!

Oh- and Tam O'Shanter's will be very special. Looking forward to that!

I have just gotten word from ABD that there will be some changes made to the Backstage Magic Adventure.

First, the Disneyland Welcome Dinner will be moved to the Big Thunder Ranch inside the Magic Kingdom.

Second, and this is BIG, Day 5 will start with a Character Breakfast at Storyteller's Cafe and then into DCA prior to park opening for an experience at Soarin, a spin on Toy Story Mania and a backstage experience at Cars Land and "FastPass service to a select attraction".

Finally, your Farewell Dinner will now be held at the Carthay Circle Restaurant followed by VIP seating for World of Color.

This means that the Steakhouse 55 dinner and breakfast at Goffy's Kitchen have been replaced.

The Farewell Breakfast is still being held at Storyteller's Cafe.

These are awesome additions.

This may change some of your planning.
I love the additions! Particularly the Day 5 breakfast at Storyteller's, we will be so close to DCA.

I'm also very excited to be going to Tam O'Shanter for lunch. I also need to go back to The Grill on the free night in Hollywood, they have the best short ribs and the carrot cake is awesome.

Thanks for the update Kevin, the new additions sound great!

Jason, we love the Grill too, we even tried it for lunch the last time were in LA, and it did not disappoint. Greatest carrot cake EVER!

In my opinion, it is definitely worth adding it! A great restaurant, and it's only steps from the hotel!

The change to go see Cars Land is great. We are flying out this Saturday to take an early trip to DL & DCA with our grandson. And now don't have to stress so much about getting the best view of World of Color since we will be getting VIP viewing on this ABD trip.

Kevin, is there any word about pre-night stays yet. We are getting close to be able to book our flight and we are working out the details for the pre-ABD. Thanks

I'm excited about the changes! Thanks for updating us, Kevin!

I've got to start making a list of restaurants that I want to try out. I keep hearing recommendations but know that I won't remember any of them once we are there.
