"Insanity is my Middle Name" - Impromptu Easter Weekend Trip -Update 4/23 - Wishes!
 
I noticed I could still get a passholder discount room for Easter Weekend. I have the 3 days off of work. I've been pulling extra long hours since I came back from my last trip & I need a break. A break during the 2nd or 3rd busiest time of the year at the world? Yeah, I'm crazy.

What Actually Happened:

Friday April 2nd, 2010
Yak & Yeti/Dawa Bar
Jiko/All Star Music Food Court

Saturday April 3rd, 2010
All Star Music Food Court/Snacks/Tokyo Dining
Il Mulino

Sunday April 4th, 2010
Breakfast/All Star Music Food Court Lunch
California Grill
Wishes Dessert Party

They are dangerous! I'm also lucky my husband understands the need of breaks and lets me do as I please (within reason)

I"m glad you've been reading along! It will be fun. I can't wait :yay:

I'm actually a little shocked at how open the dining reservations seem to be. I mean the wicked popular places are full (Le Cellier, California Grill) but most everything else seems to have choices. I'm sure I'll change my plan like 5 times this week as I find better options w/ things I want.

On a whim, I tried for the Wishes Dessert Party on Easter Sunday!

It was available :cool1:

Normally, I wouldn't do the dessert party, but I have a feeling (err know) its going to be a mad house in the Magic Kingdom that day & I rather know I have a seat to enjoy Wishes from.

Have fun, cant wait to read the reviews and see PICS..lol

That does sound like a good plan! And a desert party . . . especially in front of the castle . . . especially since there are no calories in WDW . . . right??? I hope???

I totally agree - there are no calories in WDW I mean you walk & sweat enough so its ok.


I got back yesterday & had a great time! The parks weren't that bad but I've also been enough to know that I need to get to the park before it opens and there is so much I can get done by the time the people that sleep in get to the park. When I got home, I realized it was my 180 days to my October trip! So I made that plan and called to make the reservations. So that is all set now until the F&W Special Events get released at least.

I think I only kept 2 of the original ADRs I made but I had no trouble eating where I wanted. The joys of going solo! :woohoo:

I'll upload my pictures when I get home from work tonight & get this started!

Yup! I love sneaking in those trips. Being in driving distance & having a nice husband lets me be spoiled (especially when I buy a overpriced Dooney and Bourke purse while I'm down there too) I may be able to do another impromptu trip this summer but I have a lot of projects going on at work that may end up having to be completed on the weekends so I'll hold off on planning anything since I do have my husband's work cruise in May & a weekend in North Carolina planned for June.

Our plan for October (is fluid until special events come out)

Oct 1st
Dinner - Chick-fil-a or other fast food

Oct 2nd - Nothing Planned as we may do the Wine & Dine Half Marathon, if we don't do the Marathon, we'll do Party of the Senses Wine View Room
Breakfast - Food Court (haven't booked the value resort for Oct 1st yet)
Pool
Relaxing
Massage (?)

Oct 3rd -
Nothing planned for morning until we decide on the Half Marathon or not but most likely Hollywood Studios when we wake up
Dinner - California Grill
MNSSHP

Oct 4th - EPCOT
Breakfast -
Lunch - Coral Reef
Dinner - Shula

Oct 5th - Animal Kingdom
Breakfast -
Lunch - Yak & Yeti
Dinner - Il Mulino

Oct 6th - Downtown Disney/Disney Quest
Breakfast
Lunch - TRex
Dinner - Fulton

Oct 7th - Hollywood Studios
Breakfast - Cape May Cafe
Lunch - Nothing
Dinner - Bistro

Oct 8th - Magic Kingdom
Breakfast -
Lunch - Liberty Tree Tavern
Dinner - Citricos

Oct 9th - EPCOT
Breakfast -
Lunch - Tokyo Dining
Dinner - Party of the Senses Wine View Room

We are staying at the Beach Club so we'll be coming and going from the World Showcase also in the afternoons/evenings. We'll also do some of the wine/food seminars when those are announced. We will only do 1 of the Party of the Senses if we decided against the Half Marathon. If I wasn't with my husband, I wouldn't do the Wine View Room but knowing him - he would hate it where you wander around without a table or the cattle call at the beginning. I think he would enjoy it more to have the assigned seat, the liquor available (he hates wine but is getting better about it) and such and less cranky husbands = happier Dis_Yodas.

Breakfasts will probably be in room or at the Marketplace.

Great Choices!
 
Can't wait to hear your reviews of those places - especially Jiko and Il Mulino!

TigerKat 04-06-2010 06:25 PM

Signing on! We'll also be arriving 10/9 and probably doing PFTS that night!

onelilspark 04-06-2010 08:08 PM

I'll be there from Oct 2-9. Apparently it's when all the cool kids go :snooty:
