Looks like quite a crew for Thanksgiving lunch!

Julia is still debating her birthday dinner, she is too funny. Doesn't want to get up early on her birthday, not sure what she wants to do at all.

Good evening, one and all!

A long time since I've followed up, call it the start of a busy year, along with a busy work schedule, busy schedules for the kids, busy everything.

The Disney bug is starting to hit me again. I know this because I'm watching Disney resort videos on YouTube while I'm working, since I work from home. Oh, to dream of the day that our family stays at the Polynesian at some point; waking up in the environment there would be great to do.

We made our reservations already for Thanksgiving 2013, so we'll be there and not be square like a lot of people. Saratoga Springs was good this past Thanksgiving, but going back to our home resort for this week will be just fine by me. I was surprised... no... SHOCKED... at how well the crowds were during Thanksgiving. Oh sure, busy at times; I figured that, but overall, easy to get around. Hoping the same for Thanksgiving 2013.

So, at one point, while the family was away doing other stuff at our last visit at WDW, I spoke to someone about large reservations. They confirmed the same thing to me that was confirmed before via email, so I'll recap here:
  • Chef Mickey's at Disney's Contemporary Resort - maximum is 24 guests
  • 'Ohana at Disney's Polynesian Resort - maximum is 30 guests
  • 1900 Park Fare at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa - 31 guests possible
  • Cape May Cafe at Disney's Beach Club Resort - 31 guests possible
  • Whispering Canyon Cafe at Disney's Wilderness Lodge - 31 guests possible
  • Boma - Flavors of Africa at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge - 17 guests possible
  • Trail's End at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort and Campground - 21 guests possible
  • Disney's Spirit of Aloha Dinner Show - can accommodate up to 38
  • Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue - can accommodate up to 38

For each situation, reservations would need to be made by someone calling in to Disney to reserve; tables this big aren't available online.

Reservations at Chef Mickey's and 'Ohana's can possibly be done in one table, depending on availability for the night we are looking to eat.

The other seven would be multiple tables, and I'd need two people to go in to make the reservation. (One phone call, two credit cards to hold the table reservation) On top of that, there is no guarantee right now that we'd all be able to sit near each other.

A non-dining food option would be the Tomorrowland Terrace Fireworks Dessert Party, which can accommodate up to 50. For this option, I don't have a lot of information at this time, because I didn't even think of it until tonight. (brain fart) It's showing available, so there's a possibly I could get more info on that. Best thing about it; it would let everyone mingle.

Expense: Out of all of these, I believe Trail's End is the least expensive. ($$) Spirit of Aloha and Hoop-Dee-Doo are the most expensive. ($$$$) Everything else averages a ($$$) rating on Disney's website.

Last count from mommy2mrb that I had was around 20-22. I have no idea if that number has increased/decreased. If we could get a current count, it would help. I'll follow up with mommy2mrb at some point. Some separate communications might need to be done to determine any payment options/scheduling/resort info/other trivial discussions. I believe we can start making reservations for one of these options 180 days before the actual hotel reservation starts. (might be another call to Disney to verify how to do that for such a large group.) Thinking we need to finalize some things by the end of April.

Thoughts? Questions? Good jokes, clean or dirty?

Bruce, thank you so much for putting this all together!!!!

yes we are still at 20-22 people...haven't heard back from jacksmomma yet...

guess our next step is everyone voting on what they'd like to do! I think we had talked earlier about doing lunch...might have better options of getting in!

the wishes dessert party is very nice and lots of goodies!

so everyone, please add your input on the options and any other ideas/questions....than we can figure out who/when to make ressies - guess the first people checking it would give us a leg up on getting the ressie we want!

I agree that we need to get this nailed down by end of April...I can start making my ADR's on May 25th

Hi all,

We are checking in on November 21, I am willing to make the ressies if needed.

I have no preference about where we eat. I think Julia would be okay with all of the options as we have eaten at most.

Thank you Bruce and Lisa for all the leg work with this!
