I think Max is next to Disney to attend the grand opening of the new Fantasyland! I hope she shares some pics!

Then we have Tawnya and her yearly Holiday visit that gives me fits of jealousy every time. I just NEED to make it there at Christmas time some day!

Then it's Deb and her Spring Break trip with Candice and the kids. I can't wait for this one. First trips are so special!!

We are at 139 days and counting.   

Hmm, I guess with Chris, Ethan & Aiden going I can no longer refer to this trip as Girls Gone Wild II

So, now that Candice and her family are going to WDW with us, I completely changed our plans/ADRs.    I was tickled that I was able to get tables for 7 everywhere.  Since I'm bored at work I decided to share how things have shaken up. . .:)

Wednesday:   We arrive at MCO about noon, head to check in to AKL.    After we get checked in, we are all heading to MK.    The crowd calendar shows it as a low crowd day, but it closes early - like 8:00 pm.    We have dinner ADRs at Be Our Guest.  :)    I made them a little early - 4:25 pm, so we should be out in time to see the fireworks.

Thursday:   We will start our day with the Sunrise Safari.  The M&Ms have binoculars from Alaska, so I bought Ethan & Aiden each a set too for this.    After breakfast at Pizzafari (comes with Safari), our goal is to see AK.   I'm hoping we get on EE this year.    I'd also like to see FOTLK again.    Later we have dinner ADRs at Ragland Road at 6:30.  Candice's father is Irish, so I know she'll enjoy seeing the show here.

Friday:   We are going to have a late breakfast at Cape May, then catch the boat over to Epcot to see WS.     I'm not sure if the M&Ms and I will venture to FW.   Who knows we may split up. . but we have ADRs for all 7 of us at Bierngarten for dinner.  After which I want to see IllumiNations.   Since this is an evening emh, we would then grab a dessert/snack somewhere and wait out the crowd before heading back to AKL.

Saturday:  DHS emh morning - so you know where we are going.  TSMM.   :)    After we will hit rides, hopefully meet Phineas & Ferb again.  We have an early lunch ADR at Sci Fi.    Later we have a later ADR for dinner at Narcoosees.

Sunday:   Late ADRs for all 7 of us at 1900 PF.  Candice said she wanted to see Alice In Wonderland.     My household will then head back to AKL to enjoy a quiet day as this is when the daylight savings time changes.   So I want to take it easy on them.   Not sure what the other 4 will do - but we will meet up at HDDR later for dinner.  We have 6:15 pm ADRs.    MK has emh evening hours here, so depending on how everyone feels when HDDR lets out, we may head over to MK.

Monday:   ADRS for all 7 of us for breakfast at Ohana.     AFter I'm not sure.  I have no park planned, but the crowd calendar shows MK as the choice park for today.    So depending on how everyone feels we will head to a park, DTD, back to resort so swim.    We have dinner later at 1900 PF.   I can't wait.   I plan to get each boy a diamond ring to give to one fo the Tremaines.  :)   

Tuesday:   Epcot has emh morning.  The plan is for all 7 of us to head to Epcot - hit some of the popular rides.  Then we will all head back to AKL.   Candice, et al will probably head to the airport about noon - and they have a 3:00 pm flight home.   So the M&Ms and I plan to go back to AKL with them to say good byes.   Then we 3 have a late dinner at Jiko booked.

Wednesday:   Back to just the 3 of us.    I am planning no park today.    We have a late ADR at Chef Mickey's.   then whatever the M&Ms want.   DTD/ pool / putt putt, etc.    We have dinner booked at WCC.

Thursday:    Mk emh.    My mission is Merida today.  Don't care about anything else, we missed out on Rapunzel, not going to miss Merida.    Late breakfast at Crystal Palace.   Dinner later at Tony's.    I'm not 100% about this one though.  AS Much as my DDs love Tony's, I'm not sure I want to have a park meal planned.    We generally leave about lunch, so would I really want to go back for dinner later?   I'm wondering if thee is somewhere else, fun - to consider.   I did not buy hoppers so our choices are MK or a resort for dinner.  

Friday:  Late breakfast at Boma.   Then pool time.   Mucho later we will head to MK for BBB/CRT.    MK is a neutral park, so whether or not we stay after CRT is up to how it looks.  But the M&Ms could not leave WDW without a make over of some sort.  :)

Saturday:   We fly home
