meal plan

I know it's too early, but I want to plan. Last time I had no plan and it was bad. This time I am making a plan and reservations as soon as possible.

On our first day we are landing 18.55. So I'm not sure around what time we will be in DLP. I know we will be hungry enough and would like to have a dinner. Not sure where - it might be crowded. Was thinking about buffet in Cheyenne or should we go to Village? What would be your choice?

Also, I have doubts about departure day. flight is scheduled 17.55 CDG. So be there 2 hours prior.. 15.55.. Leaving around 15 I say? Where to have lunch? We won't be going in parks that day.

I'd definitely have dinner at the Cheyenne buffet on your first night - and probably book it for 8.30pm.

On your last day you could do any of the restaurants in the Village, at lunchtime they are all fairly quiet. So just pick your favourite.

You think arriving 18.55 at CDG will get us to DLP by 20.30? Don't want to be late for dinner.. What happens if I'm late?

you can be up to 15 minutes late for your reservation before they cancel your reservation.

Yes, for a landing at 7pm I'd expect you to be at the Cheyenne if you're booking a shuttle for the transfer by 8.15pm at the latest (I'd say even earlier than that if you don't have bags to collect).

Even if you are late for a restaurant reservation at the Cheyenne, its no big deal - you'd just join the "no reservations" line at the entrance to the restaurant and get in anyway, especially at that time in the evening.

I too would go for 8.30 pm. You should be ready for that time with a bit of lucky. Like Elaine says, they will keep it until 8.45 pm for you anyway. Really even with baggage reclaim (30 mins MAX) and transfer at that time of night, 30 mins or so, you should be there for 8 pm.

On your last day, personally, for lunch I would do Cafe Mickey (if not planning it any other time). It's a nice way to round off a trip with some lunch and characters .

MC? Do you mean Cafe Mickey? Yes, the characters are there every day from noon until just before 3pm.

Yes, perhaps not as many as dinner but they are there. Think they start coming out not long after opening at 12 noon. And I *think* they finish about 2.30 pm, maybe nearer 3 pm.

We saw Mickey, Minnie, Tigger, Eeyore, Chip n Dale & Goofy in June at lunchtime. So your regular characters, but we did have some nice interaction with them for our last day/meal.

would agree with others cheyenne for the 1st night but id go for 9pm, we waiting nearly an hour for our luggage in may , the pushchairs took forever to come out!!! by the time you transfer and checking id imagine it would be closer to 9pm.

Id go for lunch at cafe mickey a lovely way to finnish off your holiday esp if your not visiting the parks on your last day.

Thanks. I never paid attention CM had characters for lunch. Might be a good idea to finish our trip. Will make a note in my plan. We'll see how we did character meet'n'greet in parks, Inventions and then decide about CM.

I'm thinking of booking 9.00pm. I'd be more relax to know I have time left. Do they let you in if you come a bit early?

yes, more than likely you will get into the restaurant at the Cheyenne before your reservation time if you're a little early.

As others have said I would eat at your hotel when you arrive in case you're tired. However for the lunch I would recommend just grabbing something from earl of sandwich. a full sit down is the last thing I want before I jump on a plane
