Dinner is Set!

For the most part anyway. Today we are at our 90 day mark. That is 90 days until our WDW vacation starts. At 90 days you are able to start making advanced dinner reservations (ADR). This morning after Breakfast Joe and I sat down and went over what we have planned thus far. Then we called the Disney ADR line and we now have ADR for all four nights we will be at the resort. We debated for quite some time when we first made our reservations for the vacation on whether or not we wanted to add the Disney Dining Plan to the vacation. We finally decided that it would be worth it for us and added it. The DDP gives us for each day we are there, a table service meal, a counter service meal and a snack. It doesn't cover all three meals each day but between snacks and all we will have plenty of food for the four of us.

We are having three Character meals. The most important one being our first one of the trip is at Cinderella's Royal Table. It is at the castle and we are having breakfast. Jenna could not be any happier. She is so excited that she gets to dress up as Cinderella and then gets to meet her at her castle. There will also be the fairy godmother there and a few other princesses but we are not sure of who at this point. We made there reservations a couple of months ago. Reservations for CRT are allowed to be made 120 days out. For any one else planning on going and wanting to have a meal at the castle. It books up really fast. Joe actually called the other day to see if we could get an earlier time for our breakfast and that day is already completely booked no availability for the entire day. Oh well, our time isn't a bad time it's just if we could have got in earlier we would have been able to get in the park before it opens.
Can you tell that I am getting really excited? In about 3 weeks or so we can start reserving our activities for the cruise portion of our trip. I can hardly wait to see what is available for the kids to do.
Most of computer time lately is being consumed by The DIS BOARDS. Just about anything you could ever want to know about Disney vacations is on there. So if you are curious about anything, just even thinking of planning a trip go give them a look. Seriously any question you could ask , you will probably find an answer on there some where from someone. It's very addictive, you can just read and read. That's partly what helped us decided on doing the DDP, and some of the places we decide to eat at. That's what's been occupying my time, lots of reading and planning.
Hope everyone had a great Valentine's Day weekend. We had a very nice dinner at The Daily Grill in Tyson's Corner. The kids had an afternoon of fun with Nana.
****One last thing a small request rather, another huge thing that has been on my mind since Saturday evening. My Grandpa is in the hospital in So. Cal. He was admitted for low blood sugar, he is diabetic. After being admitted he had a small heart attack. They haven't been able to do a whole lot for him at this point because he is having breathing complications. My Mom said he looked better yesterday than he did on Saturday. She is keeping us updated as often as she can. Please if you have an extra moment in your day say a little prayer for my grandpa and my grandma who is by his side. I absolutely hate that I am all the way across the country from them, this has been very hard for me. I am so glad that the rest of my family is able to be close to him. Thanks for listening.
