If you go with a large family or group, do you all go through the parks together or do you go off and do your own things? I am hoping we will all do the parks together and go off on our here and there.
Do you eat all your meals together or choose one meal to meet up and dine? This is if you all go off in different directions each day.
Because two are arriving two days after the five, we will have 4T/4C/4S to play with. What would you suggest?? As of right now, we haven’t sat down to discuss where we all want to dine. A suggestion was put out that everyone choose a place where they want to eat and go from there.
I know I must seem like I am all over the place but I have this going through my head constantly. I am so use to planning for just DH, DS and myself. They just sit back and enjoy the ride. Last trip we had DS(25) with us and he had an absolute blast. This trip we will have all the boys and their better halves. I don’t want to come across as being too pushy with making plans, but I know what goes into planning these trips and being we are going during a busy time, I am starting to panic.
Oh, and I have already ordered the Vacation DVD for the kids and the Passporters are on pre-order. Just wanted to throw that out there too. And, I’ve texted everyone to let them know that we have 250 days to go woohoo!!! DH already received his first WDW countdown note today:)[/QUOTE]
We just took a family trek to Disney last month and there was 10 of us. Most flew down the first day, but a couple came down a few days later.
We booked some dinners together and did go to the parks together each day, but broke off to do our own things during the day.
My two sons (3 and 1 1/2) were with us so we ate where we wanted to. We did get the free disney dining this trip so actually booked 9 sit downs, but only made it to 7. Two of them were character breakfasts so everyone came with us since it was birthday related. For the other sit downs, only on one of them did a few come, but for the most part they booked where they wanted to eat and we did the same.
They say that the seafood buffet is awesome (our other group went to it) which is at the Yacht Club Resort I believe but could be wrong you will have to research it since the name is slipping from me too. Our favorite character breakfast was Ohanas at the Polynesian. The Coral Reef at Epcot was pretty good to, and the atmosphere is what we liked. Our favorite spot is Canada Steakhouse at Epcot and actually didn’t go this trip, but we are not going to miss it next time.
Just research what you like, you are bound to find something. Downtown Disney is always fun and we love the Cirque De Soleil (sorry about spelling) that is always a great night out.
Good luck with you planning and keep us informed…
