Hello all. Today we are at 100 days before we are in Disney and I want to make/buy a special dinner tonight (trying to get my family excited like me), to celebrate being 100 days out, going into double digits thursday, and being PIF.
I plan on stopping off at Target and making little Disney trip goody bags and I plan on us as a family (no cell phones, no video games, no lap tops) watching a Disney movie together. I will even let everyone watch the movie and eat dinner at TV trays.
So what could I make? I am a fairly good cook so I can make just about anything except pancakes and flan...LOL
Which movie are you going to watch? I think I would use that to guide my dinner choice. "Special" doesn't have to be fancy, either. I could be something fun, too. Like, if I was going to watch "Cars," I'd do "race track" food - hot dogs or nachos, maybe.

Stitch - go Hawaiian, of course. There are lots of recipes on allears.net for the wings, potstickers, bread from O'Hanas
Beauty and the Beast - go French. French onion soup, pate and french bread, wine and a bottle of sparkling cider for DD?
If not movie specific then why not re-create a fav meal from a previous trip? I've made the cornbread from Hoop de Doo, Guiness reduction and bread pudding from Raglan Road, potato casserole and the hearts of palm salad from CP...all came from allears.net.
If it helps, I am in the same boat in my house, I mean the crew all LOVE WDW but I am the one who counts down every day from the day I book it and DS doesn't want to think about it until we are down to one week ! Heck, I get excited just reading that you are closing in on double digits....
I didn't see this post until tonight, but for our 100 day dinner, I made Mickey-shaped food....I made dinner rolls made in the shape of Mickey, I cut bread into Mickey shapes with a cookie cutter and toasted them for the croutons in the salad, made a cake with two little cupcakes for "ears." For the main dish, I made a shepherd's pie type recipe I found on AllEars (from the Rose & Crown, I think). I set the table so each place setting was a "hidden Mickey" and I wrote on each plate with mustard -- a Mickey head with each person's name. It was a lot of fun!!
