    Nothing wrong with Entenmann's for a few days with some home brewed coffee. I'd recommend the Sanaa breakfast since you're in Kidani and since it's pretty good. Otherwise, if you're looking to get out for breakfast then Kona.

    I just finally read you PTR. My trip also overlaps yours by a couple days and we're staying at Kidani renting points also!

    I'm so excited! I hate that it's still so far away. But honesty I wouldn't want to go any other time of year for this trip. Have you stayed at Kidani before? As I've said before I know this is going to ruin me. :)

    This will be my first time there. I'm really excited to check it out. I'm hoping to take some time to spend at the resort but the parks are always so alluring...

    Just a very small change. I have cancelled our Trail's End Breakfast Reservation and moved Kona Cafe Breakfast to our departure day. I've decided this is a relaxing vacation and I'll eat breakfast at Sanaa instead of running all over property in the morning to get to breakfast. :)

    Soooo late to the party! But I had to check out your plans you mentioned for your sans kids trip:) They look great!

    We are also from Indiana and have a trip planned for September with out the kiddos. I'm currently looking at flights out of Indy which are pretty cheap via SW!

    78 Days to go!! @PrincessL and @amjt660 got me excited to make a post since it's been quite awhile.

    Not many of our plans have changed. Still just one park, which I'm ok with. I'm still so excited and checking my countdown daily.

    Our 4 ADR'S are

    II Mulino for dinner
    California Grill for a late dinner and then HEA!
    Tiffins with ROL seating
    Kona Cafe for breakfast.

    I've broke my own rules and watched HEA on Youtube. I loved it. I will miss Wishes but am very excited to watch HEA in person.

    I've booked our flights through Delta and were cheaper than I had thought. We are arriving later than I had hoped and should get to AKL around 7pm. I'm guessing we'll explore the resort and enjoy the atmosphere there for the night.

    Departure day we will have until 3pm or so until we will have to board the not so magical express.

    FP+ will be made in a couple of weeks and I haven't even thought of how we'll tour the park yet!! :eek: Not sure if we'll sleep in or hit the parks early. Do I want to put off Pandora until the morning rush has left or run there at opening. Do I book FP+ around 10 like I do at MK or do I put it off until later!? These may seem like ridiculous questions but we're really trying to go slow and enjoy are day, I don't want any strict schedules for this trip. :)

    @MerMom1981 and @Courtney6682 I said I'd let you know about our trip to Tennessee. It was a wonderful time with a lot less wifi, more game time and spending time together. We did some ziplining, white water rafting and hiking.
    Here are just a few pictures of our vacation

    C didn't enjoy the hiking as much as the rest of us.

    It rained in the middle of our hike. We attempted to huddle under a rock ledge to stay dry. I thought of @TheMouseFan at this moment.

    Gorgeous sunset photo! And the daytime rolling green hills/mountains shot could have been taken with my camera during our trip to TN two summers ago. :)

    It was all around Gatlinburg. Our cabin was about 15 minutes away. We actually only went into town once. We were trying to stay away from the hoards of people.

    Thank you. It was so beautiful. We will definitely be going back, my next goal is to get a cabin by a creek. And not get a speeding ticket.:oops:
