We usually start with breakfast at Crystal Palace, but this year we are starting our trip at Hollywood Studios. So we're doing 50s Prime Time for lunch!

And we usually end with Chef Mickeys, but it wasn't available because I JUST planned this trip for April so we are ending with 1900 Park Fare.

I have a few we always want to do (such as the above) but they aren't always in the same order

I always like 'Ohanas for dinner the first day. After traveling all day, Im usually starving. And a lapu lapu is a nice way to start any vacation.

Last day is Kona for breakfast and The Plaza or Chefs for a late lunch. I love all three and usually try to do Kona more than once. I just love their breakfast.

We always end our trip with breakfast at 'Ohana - then, we ever so sadly, make our way to the car to start our trip home.

We generally arrive around dinner time, so we sort of have developed an unofficial tradition of hitting Pecos Bills shortly after we hit the park to start off the trip.

Our trips always start at the Biergarten and end at Jiko. We like to think the Biergarten gets us in the right frame of mind for a crazy fun week and Jiko is a nice relaxing way to end things.

We typically arrive late afternoon and grab a quick bite at resort, but our first full day usually starts with Chef Mickey's. No need for a lunch break that first day!

I like a dinner at 'Ohana the first night and a dinner at Cali Grill the last night.

I like Cape May for a last morning breakfast.

We always like to do Ohana on our first full day there (we no longer book ADRs on our arrival day so we don't feel rushed to make it there depending on flights/tiredness.) For our trip in May it'll be our 1st Anniversary on our first day so we'll be eating at Citricos instead . We do have an ADR for Ohana a couple of nights later though!

We never really have a certain place to go on our last night, maybe because we'd associate it with leaving the next day, lol. Normally it'll be whatever we're in the mood for, which sometimes is as simple as heading down to Earl of Sandwich and grabbing some shakes at Ghirardelli!

Our first Disney meal is ALWAYS lunch at our resort food court.
Our last night meal is ALWAYS dinner at Epcot - it varies each year. Last year was Teppan Edo - this year it will be Via Napoli.

Akershus 1st park day (lunch)
but we always include 1 Cellier visit (and not for the filet, cheese soup or pretzel breads)
La Cava
Tokyo (Illuminations view rather than the food)
'Ohana (Lapu and bread pudding.....really don''t care for their dinner)
otherwise whatever reservations are open and look good
This time we are trying Yachtsman and Be Our Guest

First meals for us is always at Earl of sandwich. We check in, go to DTD to shop for trinkets, and eat at Earls. Last Night we always eat at Rose & Crown and watch the fireworks from their restaurant. Our last meals at the parks always vary because every year we go to a different park to close out our vacation.

Our first meal is San Angel Inn at Epcot. When we enter, I just feel like we can start vacation, we just love the atmosphere!

We usually end with Liberty Tree Tavern since the last day is at MK.
