Sounds like fun! We had a blast at SWW this year--I hope you enjoy it, too! Dinner at Hollywood & Vine was one of my all-time favorite character meals. We were there for over 2 hours and we probably saw each character 3-4 times. I don't know how the menu compares to their standard fare, but we thought the food was great. The parade and Fantasy (I think that's what it was called) in the Sky fireworks are also must-do.

I went to SWW in 2009, but it was a last minute thing. I didn't even know it was SWW until I got there. I much prefer the food at Brown Derby, but I'll sacrifice to see Jedi Mickey.

I had a big run of good luck right after that vacation, I hope that repeats.
