View Full Version : I need lots of help, we arrive on the 4th!

Ok, so I'm usually pretty good with these kinds of things but I have seriously slacked when it comes to planning for this trip. We will arrive on January 4th and spend 3 nights at WL. We will then spend a night at SSR before finishing up at BWV (leaving on the 12th). I've only made one ADR for Le Cellier - that's it for the whole trip! :guilty:

I don't even know where we should try this time. Some places that we love are Le Celliar, Brown Derby, Alfredo's, Sci-Fi. We didn't like San Angel - yuck :scared:

Any ideas where we should try? No fish, I'm allergic and DFi doesn't care for it either.

We like "normal" food. You know, pasta, steak, chicken, that kind of stuff. I would love to try something else but I just don't know where. I've looked over the menus many times but I just don't know what we should try.

Any advise?

At this late date I would try some of the "overlooked" restaurants. Some suggestions would be Grand Floridian Cafe, Yacht Club Galley and the Plaza. We've had luck getting last minute reservations for Alfredo's and Biergarten. Good luck. We arrive on the 4th too!

Pepper Market is the open air Food Court at Coronado Springs. Upon entering, you are escorted to a table and presented with a ticket. You walk around selecting the foods you want, your ticket is stamped. When you exit the Market you pay your bill. A 10% gratuity is added automatically.

It usually is easy to get into!!

I have found that going to some of the less visited resort spots doesn't necessarily require ADR's. Try Olivia's in Key West, Maya Grille in CSR, Boatwrights in PORS or Shutters in CBR. I've tried them all, without ADR's and only had minimal wait times.

I'd try 'Ohanas for dinner. I was able to get January 8 when I booked last week so you may have some luck as well. I'd also try for some places that don't have characters. Why don't you try Spoodles, WCC, that sort of thing.

At this point I'd make a list of the things I like and then call, you may have some difficulty making ADRs for the first part of your trip because it's marathon weekend. You may have better luck the later part.

Good luck.
