Talking I GOT IT!!

I'm so excited, I can't tell anyone because it's a surprise so I came to where I can talk and people here will understand my excitement!

I got an ADR for 10 at Artist Point in January for my whole family to enjoy the new Snow White character meal! It's a surprise for my kids and grandkids so I have to keep it secret! One DDiL is a rabid Grumpy fan and I know she will be over the moon as he is one of the characters at dinner!

I am, however, sorry to see Artist Point change from the signature dining location of the past. We always enjoyed our meals there, it was a nice couples spot.

So Happy for you!

When is the Big Reveal going to happen? And hopefully you will let all of us know how it is when you come back from your trip.

Oh my goodness, you did amazingly well! From what I understand, with the change in the meals there, suddenly Artist Point is like the golden ticket of Disney dining.

I cannot wait to hear what you think of it....

Christmas...that's when the grandkids will learn about the trip (well, the younger two because DDiL1 (not the Grumpy fan) couldn't keep her mouth shut.

Disney magic!! I had been trying, but no luck. Dave called DVC to change our May trip from SSR to Beach Club (our first time there) because I had a meeting when the booking window opened. I wrote in his instructions to ask and he did and he got! So he's the kid with the golden touch!

We've always loved Artist Point, but I'm excited I was able to get this as a surprise for everyone, especially DDiL2.

Great score of an ADR. Uou must share your experience with us when you return. I think this will be a very popular character option.

I think it will be too. It's been a while since a new character meal was added that gives you the opportunity to dine with new characters. There have also been requests for so many years on these boards and elsewhere for something like this with these characters, so I think it will be one of the most popular, if not the most popular, character meal for a long time to come...

How exciting! It sounds like it will be a good character experience.
We've never eaten at Artist's Point, but I know what you mean about losing a signature restaurant. One less place on property for a relatively quiet meal.

Our dates are 11-18. It's been forever since we've been to Flower and Garden and it's one of my favorite times!

yes, and one that's not a buffet. I dislike buffets and my husband does as well. So this way they get a character meal, one they have not done before, and we don't have to eat at a buffet!
