Looks like a great plan! Kudos on planning for such a large group. I've been there, done that, and I know how challenging it can be! Have a wonderful time!

Was it difficult making ADR's for such a large group? I can call tomorrow to make mine, and also have a large group going down. I was curious how they handled that, and if I would be restricted to certain restaurants or eating times. :confused3

Your choices look great! Have a wonderful trip!!! :goodvibes

They did tell us that the only way they can guarantee us to have tables together was to seat us in the first 20 minutes or the last 20 minutes of the meal serving time, hence all the late lunches and early dinners. If we opted for a time in the middle of the serving window we aren't likely to have the whole group together.

We never had a problem once we got to the resturant about being together for our large group. Even if we could not all sit at the same table they made it cozy where we were right next to each other!!!

Going back in August with a Grand Gathering of 8!!!! I must be crazy, or just love to PLAN!
