"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



Thursday May 6th, 2010

Friday May 7th, 2010

Saturday May 8th, 2010

Sunday May 9th, 2010

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

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

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.

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!

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.
