Smile picked the place - now for meals

Is there a place on this site that has meal info? We have finally settled on a place and it seems the next big task will be to figure out which shows/character dinners/restaurants we want to try to make. I have a 9 r old son, - loves all things super hero, a girl who will be 7 and loves all things princess and gross (yes, she has two brothers and has to hold her own!) and my youngest is a boy age 6 and loves all things Cars and pirates. We all love animals so we definitely want to do something at AK for a meal and def a princess meal. Any recommendations, hints, opinions? Should this be a new thread? Thanks for all your help! I am loving this site!

October 19th - 26th

We are going October 19th - 26th. Currently, we are booked at POR but want CSR. However, CSR is booked up for the standard rooms. Trying different date ranges it looks like 10/23 is the only day all booked up . So we are hoping it will open up and we can change. Anybody, have any thought on CSR vs POR?

Also, hoping for FD as we got FD our last 2 trips and loved trying all the restaurants. We stayed at the POFQ for those trips and want to try somewhere new this time. FD just seems like a better discount overall if you like going to the restaurants, since the discount on the rooms is only on the rooms and not the whole package. FD for our family of 4 (me, DW, DD8, DD6 and DD2) is over $1,000 but a room discount of 35% is only about half that in a moderate.

If no discount is offered though we may look to stay offsite.

This website is great! We've done the breakfast buffet at Boma and it was awesome. I've heard really good things about the dinner buffet there.

Princess Storybook Dining at Akershus Royal Banquet Hall in Epcot. Not sure about the food but the time you get to visit with the Princesses is good.

You can find menus and review on each restaurant here http://www.wdwinfo.com/wdwinfo/dinin...ydining.cfm#ak

I'm sure there is probably a food discussion on here somewhere.

But to help answer your question, I would recommend Akershus Royal Banquet at Epcot. The character meals there feature quite a few of the princesses.

We enjoyed our meal, which was all you can eat (served family style and buffet if I remember correctly). The all you can eat was handy because we had a party of seven, with some picky eaters, so everyone was able to enjoy as much as they wanted of whatever they were keen on.

Our DS, who was 7 when we went, enjoyed the atmosphere and even liked the interactions with the princesses. Also getting a reservation there is usually much easier than getting one for Cinderella's Royal Table. Hope this helps.

Thanks for posting this! Many of us are newbies. We are planning our first Disney vaca as a family of 6. It's hard to find good deals for large families. Any tips? Want to go in Oct '13. We have a 7 yr old and triplets that will be 4.

Pin?

What do I need to do in order to receive a PIN? I'm registered with WDW and recently ordered a Planning DVD but haven't received it. Do PINs come via email, direct mail, etc?

You cannot do anything to receive a pin. They are random. That being said, you may increase your chances by registering at any and all Disney based websites. Still doesn't mean you will get one though. Good luck!!!

Checking in! My DH and I have the Disney bug big time and nothing else to do during this cold winter but plan for our next vaca, which we have narrowed down to October '13. This will be our first time onsite and have no budget but I am the queen of deal hunting so we must find one! Thinking about a split stay between value and moderate but we'll see how the deals shape up. Might just nix value altogether if it is good enough.

I got a code in the mail unfortunately it was for July

I just got a code in the mail for July. It didn't seem like much of a deal, didnt mention a percent only gave a room rate.

*Sun-Thurs rates
$148 Value
$201 Mod
$289 Deluxe

I calculated a mod at POFQ and got $1100. So only $100 savings. I just hope this wasn't a waste of a PIN code for me. Hoping they will actually announce something like FD for our dates.

I once received a PIN for "May", but it was actually good all year. You may want to check again.

Flights are booked!

Visiting Oct 1-8! Haven't booked hotel yet, but will probably be ASMu again. Waiting for ToT registration to see what kind of deal there is to be had. Still, free dining would best!

October Free Dining

We will be there October 2-10, then on the Disney Dream 10-13! We are hoping for Free Dining in a big way! This will be our 7th trip in October and we've gotten Free Dining just about every time, so we hope this time is no different!
