Awesome job! You have a really nice selection there.


#3

Great Choices… Looks like a ton of food, enjoy


#4

I’m glad you were able to get both Chef Mickey’s and Donald’s Safari Breakfast.
The Tusker House breakfast has become a hot ticket, and very hard to get.
I’m guessing your 90 day window opened up this morning.

#6

yummy! You took my Beirgarten suggestion…woot woot…I hope you like it!


#7

You must have had a ton of pixie dust. Your plans sound so great. I tried for Le cellier and norway and I don’t like to be picky, but I just don’t like eating dinner at 9 PM.


#8

One word for you… YUMMMY!!! hope you enjoy every bite!


#9

I had to comprimise a little and take Le Cellier at 4:20, but we dont have lunch scheduled that day just breakfast and snacking.


#10

Sounds familiar. Oh, right.
That’s the time I was offered too. Either that or 8:30 and that clearly conflicts with Illuminations.
You’re not going to get seated and order, go outside to catch the show from a badly obstructed spot, and then march back inside to eat.
We’re not talking Japan with a second floor balcony with decent viewing here, we’re talking back in the Canadian woods.


#11

so 4:20 was the better option?


#12

Yes definitely. When we get an early seating, we usually have a big breakfast, skip lunch, so that we can enjoy dinner that early.


#13

I wouldn’t say it was better, only that it worked better with my other plans.
I’d really wanted some time between 6 PM and 7 PM.
The day we’re going, MK closes at 11, so worst comes to worst, we grab a couple of burgers at Cosmic Ray’s or Pecos Bill at 10:45.
Or I could jump in the car once we get back to CSR and go to McDonald’s(:ohmy:)


#14

now on to making park schedules around this and EMH.


#15

Whatever works for you, but I’ve found that I plan my dining around park and EMH schedules, not the other way around.


#16

yeah - I did that the first time and had it worked out this time to do that…but some things DID NOT work like I planned. I had to make a choice right there on the phone - scratch the original plan and not get some definite ADR’s i wanted within the time frame I wanted or be flexible with the park schedule to get EVERYTHING I wanted as far as ADR’s. I figured 8 days was enough time to get to the things we must do and love to do no matter what our ADR’s were.

So, I am hitting every restuarant I wanted to hit…but some when I didn’t want to hit them…Example - I wanted Le Cellier either 12/26 or 12/31 but couldnt get it - So, now I am in MK on New Years Eve (which is NOT what I wanted, but oh well - I am at MK on New Years Eve - I could be home doing nothing - perspective is everything :slight_smile:
