[QUOTE=philroy;1093508]Hi all -
I am coming out of the shadows after lurking here off and on for a few years. I have gleaned much from the wisdom of those of you that go to Disney way more often than I have been able to, so thanks for your insight and input.
I just pulled the final trigger on my dining reservations for our late-January, early-February trip using the free dining plan offer. We have 3 kids who will be 12, 7, and 5 when we go, and this will be the 3rd trip for the oldest and only the 2nd for the two younger ones. We were trying to get Mickey’s Backyard BBQ since we still have 2 kids that we thought would enjoy it, but I discovered this morning that they don’t book that show through January and February.
We were also a little late in booking our trip, so here’s what we were able to get for dining:
[li]Day 1 @ MK: Liberty Tree Tavern for dinner
[/li][li]Day 2 @ HS: Mama Melrose’s for lunch
[/li][li]Day 3 @ AK: counter service meals
[/li][li]Day 4 (day off): Chef Mickey’s late breakfast, Spirit of Aloha for dinner
[/li][li]Day 5 @ MK: Crystal Palace for dinner
[/li][li]Day 6 @ Epcot: Coral Reef for dinner
Crystal Palace, Mama Melrose’s, and Coral Reef are new to us. We’ve done the others on one of our previous trips. We debated on several other options but settled on this What do you think?

I have been to CP once for dinner and I was pleasently surprised. It was really good.
