Mini Trip -- September 19 - 22
 
After having cancelled our ten night trip due to the economy, we were offered a two-bedroom condo on the beach in Marco Island. So our plans were to go to Marco Island--free condo, free airline tickets and then just spending money on car rental and meals (I'll do a lot of cooking and we'll just eat out a couple of nights). I got a brainstorm last night that I still had a deposit on hold from our cancelled Disney trip and with the $96 rates out for the moderates, I thought why not use the deposit money and go for at least a couple of nights. So, we are arriving at our home away from home, CSR, on September 19 and departing on September 22. We did not get the dining plan, but we have made some reservations and I will post reviews after we get back from Marco Island (we fly home on September 29).

This is what I have for our mini-trip to DW (I'm still going to try to get Crystal Palace at some point) and what I will review upon our return:

Breakfast at Kona
Lunch at Plaza
Lunch at Mama Melrose
Lunch at Chefs De France
Dinner at Fulton's

Okay...I THINK TODD snuck into my house last night and spoke to my DH because we've ALREADY changed ressies. We cancelled Mama Melrose and Fulton's (Mark figured we'd eat seafood in Marco Island). We added Biergarten and we got Crystal Palace for lunch (I had to have ONE character meal). We've never done CP for lunch so hope I'm not disappointed.

And you'll have to wait until September 29 or 30 to get reviews...I'll be in Marco Island having lunch one day with the Queen of Food Porn!

Sounds like a fun trip :thumbsup2

Glad you still get to go to WDW. You're going to be there the same times as us. Your trip actually encompasses both birthdays we are celebrating-my DD's is the 19th and my DM's is the 22nd.

Very excited...was just able to change Crystal Palace from 11:30 lunch to 10:00 a.m. breakfast -- YES, I'm having my puffed french toast! :cool1::cool1:

:lmao::lmao::lmao:

I'm not taking the blame for this...DH made me do it! :rotfl:

Forgot to mention, we canceled Biergarten too and picked up 50's Prime Time for the day we arrive (still trying Sci Fi but no luck thus far).

So glad to hear you get to go at least for a couple of days. Now I won't get sad reading your siggy anymore :). Have a great trip. Can't wait to read your report.

Thank you. I'm sorry I made you sad with my siggy...but now IT is happy. :)

I thought I would try once each day to snag LeCellier and this morning when I got to work and logged onto my computer...there it was--LeCellier -- 12:55 pm. on Sunday, September 20. :cool1:

KatMark 08-03-2009 12:48 PM

Okay...NO MORE BEING "TODD"
 
I told DH we are DONE changing ressies, adding, cancelling, looking at menus, etc. Nic's going to think we are insane and I have to have lunch with her after the Disney trip. :rotfl2:

So, here is the FINAL plan for our mini-trip:

Arrival Saturday, September 19 -- 3:35 at Sci Fi (yep, snagged it five minutes ago)

Sunday, September 20 -- 12:55 at LeCellier (YES, can you say CHEDDAR CHEESE SOUP and PRETZEL BREAD)

Monday, September 21 -- 10:00 a.m. at Crystal Palace (yes, puffed french toast and Tigger too)

Monday, September 21 -- 6:40 p.m. -- Dinner at Plaza

Tuesday, September 22 -- Nothing. We've decided since we got LeCellier and it is an expensive meal and we are trying to keep costs down that we are just going to do counter service this day as we'll be driving to Marco late afternoon and don't want to be uncomfortable after a heavy meal.


So that is it...and no more changes. ;)
