I'll see what I can do. I think once she sees how much more positive attention you get, she will come around.

As you know, we get pins for the marathon weekend. Well, one year the pins looked very similar to the "Just Married" pins. My sister and I were both wearing ours and I can't tell you how many people thought we were there for our honeymoon. We even had a CM pull us from the back of the 60 minute TSMM line and put us at the front...because of the pins. She had to have thought we were just married because there were many other marathoners in WDW that week.

What did the marathon pins look like?! We haven't been able to do the marathon since '05, there were no pins at that time. :cry:

The pins were Mickey and Minnie holding hands with their other hands raised in the air. The only real difference, from about 10 feet away, was the fact that they were wearing racing clothes.

My Magical Triumph... I think. And thats a button, not a pin. :wink:

Yeah we got them at the expo. They were much easier to wear around the parks than the medals. We still wore our medals one of the days, but tired and sore necks by the afternoon was a bit rough.

O canada is great for lunch not too crowded - if looking for cheaper - the yakitori house in japan is good value for money and great food

Sunshine Season's is my favorite. The food is good with a great selection of different affordable options, and I like the seating area and you can wait for a fast pass there for Soarin while you eat.

Has anyone done the Princess Dining in Norway? We have it booked for breakfast, so I'm sure it's the normal buffet breakfast fare. But, wanted to know if the atmosphere and character interaction was worth it.

I've never been impressed with Norway's atmosphere. I do enjoy the food (Seafood lover), but I (IMHO) think it's kinda boring. We've never done the Princess Dining in Norway either.

I've heard from several podcasts that it is the best place to take kids if they want to meet princesses. It's cheaper than Cinderella's Royal Table and you get a boat load of princesses to interact with. I would stick with the ADR if I were you.

Jacca, you don't know what you're missing!

The Princess Dining is definitely worth it, forget the kids!
