Such cute Kiddos,

We are also going in June 2013, but we arrive late the day you leave. We have been during the time you will be there and we had a wonderful time.

Your restaurant choices are great for a first time trip.

Our first trip was in 2006, we were addicted to Disney after that. We had so much fun on that trip and we were amazed at the magic of Disney.

The girls look so adorable in their dresses!

My DD says she is done with BBB but I got three years of BBB and tons of pictures! By the time pirates league came out DS is a teen & not interested.

I am so happy for them and you!

Great ADRs, I think your kiddos will love them.

Joining in! I'm a single mom too, with just one DS, just turned 6. Our 1st WDW trip was in Feb 2012 and we're hooked! We went to Chef Mickey's for dinner and it was a great time. The food was decent and lots of character time! We also did Pirates League; so much fun! The CMs there were great, stay in character and really get into it. My son still talks about it. I bet your son will really enjoy! I saw that he's also a Star Wars fan. On your Hollywood Studios day, you may want to check out Jedi Training. It did eat up some time, but my son loved it! Sorry can't help much with princess stuff, but you've def got some awesome things planned. I hope you have a wonderful first trip with your kiddos!

Joining in from the FB page....

About your first afternoon/night.....we drive in also (about 14 hours over one evening late and then most of the next day). We usually arrive around 3-4 p.m. and always head to MK. I would definitely try to see Wishes and the parade because we went that exact week last year and were rained out two times. We did finally see it but it was after a severe thunderstorm so Tink didn't fly.

We are leaving to come home the day before you get there this year.

I know you will have a vacation!

I keep reading mixed reviews on it, but my gut is telling me to go there, so I'm not changing!

I think we are going to try the jedi training thing! He'd love it but the girls wouldn't LOL. Maybe my friend will take the girls to do stuff while my son does that...

The problem with reviews is that everyone has different opinions of good and bad. What might not bother you, could be the end of the world for someone else and vice versa. My opinion is that a bad day at Disney is so much better than a good day at work!!

My son isn't sure about the jedi training, although my husband wants to do it. I think I may have my son look at a few more videos of it and see what he thinks. He's a little shy, so it may not be a good fit for him yet. Maybe in a few years.

I have to agree with this, I do not put too much stock into dining reviews or resort reviews here. We have tried several restaurants that people do not like here on the dis and find them just fine. We have stayed at CBR and we had a really great time. CBR is beautiful and the main pool was fun. Our only issue was we were in a connecting room and every night when we our neighbors came back from the park they would let their little one play with our connecting door handle. It was maddening when you were asleep. You would hear bang bang jiggling the door and then they would play with the door handle. At one point, I hit the wall really hard because I was so tired and they wouldn't stop. It stopped that night and I didn't hear it again after this.

But this could happen anywhere you are staying with a connecting door.
