We're staying for 11 nights with S/P/D, but at Pop and QSDP.

Our CS credits will cover most lunches/dinners and some breakfasts as well (we'll be in the parks for only 7.5 of those days as the others are for Universal and Sea World).

But, this is WDW and there is no way I could go without some ADRs! We're doing the following OOP:

Saturday Jan 26th - Ohana breakfast
Monday Jan 27th - Sci-Fi Lunch
Friday Feb 1st - T-Rex Dinner
Sunday Feb 3rd - Be Our Guest Dinner
Tuesday Feb 5th - Le Cellier Lunch (last day and after lunch is back to hotel for Magical Express)

Have also planned Beaches & Cream for Saturday Feb 2nd Lunch but that one isn't an ADR. Same with the great Sea World restaurant: Sharks Underwater Grill!

We got the stay, play and dine deal, so we've got 8 TS credits to use. So far we've got:
Biergarten (family tradition, husbands' grandparents grew up in Germany).
Ohana (another tradition. One of our most favorite meals on property).
Sci Fi Diner (ate there for the first time last year. Loved the burgers, shakes and atmosphere).
Tusker House dinner (have loved breakfast, but haven't tried the dinner yet).
Cinderella's royal table (never been! I jokingly asked the boys if they'd dine in the castle with the princesses for mom, and they both surprisingly just shrugged and said "sure". I'm so excited!!!!!)

So we've got 2 more credits to use. Have thought about hoop de doo review, but hate to have 2 two credit meals. Also thought about TRex, maybe the microbrew place on the Boardwalk, maybe Chef Mickeys...decisions, decisions.

To add to the excitement this trip, we're taking my mother in law, then my sister in law and her family decided to go (2 DD, 15 and 11), and now one of my husbands friends and his family and parents are coming, too (2DD, 6 and 2).
Have you thought about Cape May for dinner or the Garden Grill? I would recommend that Garden Grill over Chef Mickey's unless you really want to see all the characters. Garden Grill is just more relaxing since it is served family style over Chef Mickey's.

We are staying at Kidani too for the first time in January. I am trying to learn as much as I can over the next few months.

Friday - 'Ohana

I'm stoked about all of them, except for 50s PTC - still thinking about possibly changing that one for something else.

Just ate at 50s PTC in Sept; I would definitely recommend! I thought the food was great.

We likes 50's too. LOVE the pot roast! The last time we were there, my youngest wasn't quite 2 and was being his usual fussy self. Another waitress came by and tries to distract it, and when he was uncooperative with her, she turned his high chair facing away from the table. The look on his face was absolutely hysterical.

I'm excited-I was able to switch our Southwest flight down to a non-stop one. it wouldn't give me the current advertised price, but at least now I have the flight I want. We did save a whole $1.60 per ticket. and we get to leave an hour later and get there an hour earlier, so it's definitely worth it!!

We will be at POR from Dec 30 - Jan 5, also We have been to WDW many times, but this is our first New Years trip. I do know that MK will have new Years eve fireworks on both the 30th and 31st, with the 31st being totally packed. We are looking at going to DHS for New Years eve, they normally do not have fireworks but will on New Years eve. Of course with 2 little DD's we probably will not make it to the fireworks Have a great trip and have a Happy Disney World New Year

Limited Time Magic

Ok I admit, I am behind on reading Disney's Park Blog. I just read about the 2013 Limited Time Magic. So where do I go next for more information but on the Dis. So will we be lucky enough to have some special weeks planned for January 2013?

Just to let everyone know, I'm not sure how much I will be on the boards this next week. Tomorrow the hubby and I are going to the Dallas Comic Con ( Sean Astin ) and then I am going out for a girls night. Then starting Sunday, I am able to access my finals. Luckily, I am able to do them at home, sitting on my bed, in my Mickey PJs.

We (myself, wife, and exchange student) will be at POR from 1/26 - 1/30 on the S/P/D program. It's a slow time of year, and we rarely stay onsite, so we will try the Extra Magic Hours days - hoping it won't be too crowded. The plan is...

1/26 ME to POR, explore the resort, swim if it's warm enough, and visit DTD. Boatwrights Dining Hall at POR for dinner.
1/27 MK, dinner at Crystal Palace
1/28 DHS, dinner at Mama Melrose's
1/29 Epcot, dinner at Biergarten
1/30 ME to airport

I wish we could stay longer and relax at the resort, but money is tight. Very happy to get airfare for $196 per person round-trip and S/P/D discount!

Wow! Very impressive!!! We are the opposite. Lol. One or two ADR the most. We are spoiled with wonderful restaurants in our area, so food isn't high on our WDW priority list. Or, as DH says, "I don't know what I feel like eating a few days in advance - how the heck will I know MONTHS in advance.!?!" Lol

We are the same way, not big into ADR's maybe 1 or 2 for an 8 day trip, and those are mainly character ones for our DD's. We really do not like spending all that time inside a TS restuarant. We use to plan everything and now we enjoy it more when we do not have the days totally planned out.
