ADR excited but still questioning `

Think I finally finished off my ADR so excited. This is our second time to WDW and second time on Deluxe plan. We consider ourselves (even my 13 and 15 year olds) somewhat of a foodie family. So, I would love to know what you think and I have a few questions. THANKS

day 1: arrive at 11:30 and going to try for QS at BOG (still hoping to get a FP+ for this) then 8:55 for California Grill (hoping to catch wishes)

day 2: Boma at 8:00 am then Dinner at Artist Point at 8:00

day 3: Sanna at 1:15 and Monsieur Paul at 7:30 (keeping fingers crossed for one of 5 tables to see illuminations- I did not know there were only five! This was my plan for illuminations)

day 4: Brown derby at 1:05 and Jiko's at 9:05 (have FP+ for early Fantasmic)

day 5: Kona at 8:30 (just read they do something special at 7:30 should I change for earlier?) and Ohana at 9:40 (can we watch wishes and then make it to 9:40?)

day 6: tusker House at 10:10 and Hoop De Doo 8:30

so what are your thoughts?

sounds good. we love Kona for dinner, never had it for breakfast though. they have the most amazing macadamia nut butter and bread, the best teryaki steak too. As far as Wishes, if it is at 9pm you will have plenty of time to watch it on the beach and then walk back inside and up the stairs for dinner at 9:40pm. We always leave a little extra time for playing in their arcade. It is on the first floor, then we head up to dinner. The electric light parade is worth seeing too, while you are on the beach at Poly. have a great time!

Not a big fan of Sanaa... But I think you cannot go wrong ith all your other choices.

I suggest Sci-Fi Dine-in for a lunch. It's junk food but very good junk food with a fun atmosphere.

I was thinking of watching wishes at the park did not know you could view it from beach...
We did sci-fi last time and it was a lot of fun but trying something different. the only repeats are California Grill, Artist Point, Hoop De Doo, and Boma

I also recommend watching Wishes from the beach at Poly. We did this during our last trip and it was fantastic. The view is awesome and it is so beautiful out there. I think you will be cutting it too close if you watch Wishes at MK. There is always a mad dash for the exit after fireworks, so that will slow down your travel time.

Your dining plan looks fantastic! I think you'll have a wonderful time! Also, BOG lunch is definitely worth waiting in line for. The line moves quicker than you think it will, and this was by far my favorite meal of our last trip, even above the TS and signature dining we did. Have a great trip!

THANKS for comment about BOG. I keep trying to get a FP+ but think I am out of luck so was wondering how long the wait will be on Wed. Nov. 13th and if it is worth it. We will be getting to park about 2 so it will not be peak lunch time.

Not trying to be smart (or anything remotely like it!!) but I wonder why you can't get a BOG FP+... I ate there yesterday (the whole Family did Thurs) by making a FP+ ressie and all was done within 30 minutes. Like I used the BOG lunch website about 12:30 and got a 12:50-1:20 arrival time.

Maybe your week is super busy over now, but try the days you are in MK as well. Good luck! And it is totally worth it if you decide to wait in line. That's why I are there twice!

Have a great trip!!

Definitely go straight to BOG if you are getting there around 2! They cut the line off at a certain point when it gets close to the end of lunch. We always went at the very beginning of lunch so I don't have firsthand info about the usual time they close off the lunch line. I think it depends on the crowds that day and how many people are waiting in line, since they have to get everyone in and out in time to prepare for dinner.
