    Ordered our Magic Bands yesterday!!!:):)
    My dh had the brilliant idea of having the kiddos choose the color of his. After he suggested it he realized the possibility that our smart alec kids would choose certain colors that he would not prefer. ;)

    The kids were all giggles as he handed out voting sheets with the colors written down. I helped dd6. She originally circled pink and red. When she saw it she laughed an evil little laugh. :p I said " Are you sure?" She thought about it a minute and then crossed it out and circled yellow instead.

    After all the voting it was a tie between yellow and green. I was the tie breaker and chose yellow. He breathed a sigh of relief. :)

    Technically we didn't need new MB's, but we want to extend our MB chain. :) Trying to have it go around our back deck interspersed with Christmas lights. :)

    Ok we are now down to 30 days til we leave for our trip. I am in a dining conundrum. @Tuvalu mentioned that Garden Grill is no longer serving sweet potato fries. They replaced them with regular. :( So the meal includes mashed potatoes and regular fries now. :confused: Who was the genius who made up this menu??:rolleyes: So now I don't know if I should switch to somewhere else. While my family are omnivores I do eat vegetarian now so those sweet potato fries looked like a nice addition to the other options. I cancelled Via Napoli for GG. What to do??

    Only one of us eats seafood. I was really looking forward to GG. We haven't eaten there for probably 8 years. Maybe I will keep it.:rolleyes:

    Did not know that. They don't have it listed on the website. I will need to check out their kids menu for 1 picky kid.

    I know it is a great place for character interactions. The kids will be happy for plain fries and I have one that lives off Disney mac and cheese when we are there. I always sacrifice for everyone else, although the berry dessert does seem like something that could get me to forget about the sweet potato fries. Decisions, decisions. :D

    I believe shortcake does beat sweet potato fries also. I will be sure to overdose on the shortcake so missing the fries seems irrelevant. ;)

    I'm having the same issue after @Tuvalu's review. :( I'll probably keep it just because it's our only character meal and I know I would miss that! The GG character interactions are better than anywhere else (at least in my experience), so that might be the meal's saving grace.

    Also, this. :rolleyes:

    It's our only character meal as well.

    I would definitely keep Garden Grill!! The characters really spend a lot of time with the kids. We were there in October and we all had a blast.

    Looking forward to the trip report. Your kids are all adorable. I can't believe how much your youngest enjoys thrill rides.

    I will be there from May 31 to June 9. Have an amazing trip!!!

    I love all of the pictures.. but the first one is my fave!! And the golf cart looks so fun!
    Omg my goodness, these are adorable!!!

    And no, I don't think making things yourself an ever less expensive in the end.: even though they seem like they would be lol.

    You should sell them on Etsy!

    Even with our horrible experience in December- I vote to keep it!

    Just make sure you don't get cookies in a cup for dessert ;)

    Thanks so much! Yes, my little one never ceases to surprise me. I remember the first time she was big enough to ride The Barnstormer, she started crying because she wanted to stay on and ride it again. She loved it so much and was disappointed when it was over. It is pretty darn short. She loves sitting in the back row of BTMR too. She kills me.:)

    Have a blast on your trip!
