It still blows my mind that reservations for character meals at Disney book 180 days in advance!!! It's just pancakes for crying out loud!!! But it is Mickey...in the plush...so you gotta expect the place to book up fast. Our trip seemed so far away at one point but we are quickly approaching our reservation window and so it is time to make some decisions.
I consider myself a pretty lucky girl having so many Disney Guru's in my life. I have gotten so much fabulous advice from my friends and family and now that I have weighed the options MANY times and consulted with Miss Addison, I think I am ready :-)
Almost every conversation I have had with someone about Disney has led to Chef Mickey's.
It is apparently one of the hottest places to eat, especially since you get to see so many characters in one place. It's high energy (which we need with my high energy kiddos) and the food is suppose to be pretty good! I can tell you right now...Addie and Blake will be too excited to eat. But you can bet your sweet ass that if I am paying over $35 for a breakfast buffet...I am going to eat like there's no tomorrow. I might even shove some bacon in my purse just to feel like I got my money's worth :-)
Ever since we decided to go to Disney, I have been dreaming of taking Addie to a princess lunch. She knows all the princesses by name and I really thought this is something that she would be excited about. But lately, when I ask her who she wants to see besides Mickey and Minnie, she says Tinkerbell. Tinkerbell has been a constant favorite of hers and to my surprise, there is NO place to eat with Tinkerbell and the fairies! There are plenty of places to see her, but it doesn't look like there is any sort of meal option. And for the price of the princess lunch (yowza!!), I don't know that I want to take her at a time where she isn't that excited about it.
Sooooo...we are going to do our "girly" thing by going to the Bippity Boppity Boutique to get our hair done (compliments of Aunt Diana). I think she will be SO excited to get her hair done and look like a princess, even if she doesn't want to eat with any of them. Ha!
And then, because we will be there before the holiday season, we are going to take the kids to Mickey's Very Merry Christmas party!
I have heard a lot of great things about the parade and lights and I think the kids will just go nuts for it. It's a separate admission ticket (of course) but I think it will be worth it. You know me and Christmas :-)
So there you go! A little glimpse at our itinerary. Making all these plans gets me SO EXCITED!!!!!!! I know I have asked before, but are there any must-see attractions for 2-4 year olds? Anything you think Addie or Blake would really go nuts for?
