Mmmm....Cake, 9 nights of Deluxe Dining w/Pictures *Big Update 8/29 GF Wishes DP, CRT

We just returned from our 11 day trip to WDW. We arrived on April 22 and spent the first night at Pop century before moving to the Grand Floridian and starting our package which included 9 nights of deluxe dining. The trip included me and my husband and our 4 year old daughter.

First I will give you a little back story into the trip planning. I wasn’t sure I would feel like or remember to take pictures so I did not do a pre-trip report.

This was our second trip to WDW. We were there last September during free dining, (stayed at POFQ), and had upgraded to Deluxe dining so we knew how much food we were in for this time. The trip in September was hectic and we went with the attitude that we had to do everything because we probably would would not come back anytime soon, but in October we received a PIN and thought we could go back and do the vacation right this time, so we planned a trip for April.

Since we had been to WDW in September I had a good idea of what restaurants we wanted to eat at again and what we wanted to try for the first time. I was able to start making ADR’s on October 27 the day that the dining window moved from 90 days back to 180. I got early to do the online booking but the system was down and I didn’t have time call in before work. So I did not make my reservations until the next day, but had no trouble getting what I wanted.

Where we dined in the end is probably quite different than what I had originally booked, but here is where we ate. I will add links once each post is made.

For those photogs reading the pictures were taken on Canon XS with a Canon 50mm 1.8 lens, Canon PowerShot SD1200IS, or our Canon XT with a Sigma 10-20mm ultra wide angle lens. I liked the look of the photos taken with the 50mm lens, but the powershot was quick and easy and not as conspicuous.
