$5 A Day Means Disney MY Way: 17 nights, 26 ADRs, 165 TS credits, 4 Disney events

$5 A Day Means Disney MY Way: 17 nights, 26 ADRs, 165 TS credits, 4 Disney events

Hello and welcome to my trip report. My family and I have just returned from a fantastic 17 night trip to Walt Disney World and Orlando. We live in the UK and due to the long and expensive flight, stay for quite a while. Without further ado, here are the details of our truly memorable trip:

Trip Dates
30th October – 16th November

6 nights at Reunion Resort in Kissimmee
11 nights at Saratoga Springs Resort and Spa with the Deluxe Dining Plan

During this trip, we experienced many new things, and enjoyed:

165 table service credits
• 110 snack credits
• 4 special events
• Taking over 3000 photographs
• The Keys to the Kingdom Tour

We enjoyed the Food and Wine Festival, Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party and Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party... but unfortunately had to endure a not-so-nice experience at the Magic Kingdom, and had to make a complaint.

Although we made 26 ADRs, we had to cancel several due to several circumstances. These include:

The Plaza Restaurant
Beaches and Cream
Flying Fish Cafe
Garden Grill
Planet Hollywood
The Turf Club Bar and Grill
Rainforest Cafe
Hoop Dee Doo Musical Revue
Crystal Palace
Whispering Canyon Cafe
1900 Park Fare
Chef Mickey’s
Yachtsman Steakhouse
Captain’s Grille
50s Prime Time Cafe
Cape May Cafe
Biergarten Restaurant (CANCELLED)
Be Our Guest Restaurant
Grand Floridian Cafe
Cinderella’s Royal Table
Liberty Tree Tavern
1900 Park Fare (CANCELLED)
Le Cellier Steakhouse
T-REX Restaurant

As you can see, we enjoyed three signature restaurants along with nine character meals, and benefitted from some fantastic food. Along with reporting our fun in the parks and resorts I will be posting reviews on the restaurants we had the pleasure of eating at.

We also were lucky enough to visit:

The Kennedy Space Centre
Wekiwa Springs State Park


Hello! I am Megan and am seventeen years old. I plan our trips to Disney, being the planner of the family, and decide on our itinerary, ADRs and the like. I love Disney, and America. Culturally, it is a lot more acceptable for adults to like Disney in the US- in the UK it is seen as far more for children. My love for all things Disney can irritate my family at times, but luckily my younger brother Rory is also happy to watch Disney movies and speak about Mickey and the parks.

Favourite Park: Magic Kingdom
Favourite Restaurant: 1900 Park Fare
Favourite Character: Belle, Rapunzel, Cinderella and Minnie Mouse
Favourite Ride: Splash Mountain

This is my mum, Tracey. She loves the food and hotels involved with a Disney trip, along with the first class rides and entertainment. She also loves to relax by the fantastic swimming pools at SSR. She is a speech and language therapist and works at a hospital which she finds very rewarding!

Favourite Park: Magic Kingdom
Favourite Restaurant: Flying Fish Cafe
Favourite Character: Mickey, Minnie and Anastasia and Drizella
Favourite Ride: Tower of Terror

This is my dad, Will. He loves the Disney shows like Dream Along with Mickey, and Pluto, Donald and Goofy hold a special place in his heart. He loves cars and enjoyed seeing all the American vehicles on the roads! He loved also the spaciousness of the villa we had in SSR and the DDP.

Favourite Park: Magic Kingdom
Favourite Restaurant: 1900 Park Fare and Yachtsman Steakhouse
Favourite Character: Pluto, Goofy, Donald
Favourite Ride: Tower of Terror and Rock n’ Roller Coaster

This is William, who we affectionately call Willum, aged 15. He supposedly dislikes Disney, and made certain to make a fuss whenever we watched a parade or fireworks. He loves the Disney rides and can’t understand why we’d want to do anything but...!

Favourite Park: Hollywood Studios
Favourite Restaurant: Chef Mickey’s
Favourite Character: Goofy
Favourite Ride: Rock n’ Roller Coaster

This is Rory who is a bright, clever little eight year old boy who loves Disney (although in Willum’s presence doesn’t like to admit it sometimes!) He loves to snuggle on the sofa with me and our lovely dog and watch a Disney movie. He was looking forward to riding Rock n’ Roller Coaster this trip as he did not make the height requirement on our last trip.

Favourite Park: Hollywood Studios
Favourite Restaurant: 1900 Park Fare
Favourite Character: Pluto, Ariel
Favourite Ride: Tower of Terror and Rock n’ Roller Coaster

Without further delay, let’s start this trip report! The title and more details will be explained in the next post!
