Going in Sept? Share your plans!!

We are going to Disney World.... and dining for FREE!!!

I am so excited about this trip. We will be there from Sept 11th -20th, staying at POR. We will be dining at Coral reef, 50's Prime Time Cafe, Kona Cafe, 'Ohana, 1900 Park Fare, Chef Mickeys and Le Cellier Steak House. I am getting so nervous about the park hours and making our ADR's 90 days out, especially during free dining. Anyone else feel this way?

So, what are your plans? Also, offer advice or any tips that you have. I would love to chat with some folks that will be going in Sept. It's going to be HOT, but we are going to have a blast!!!!!

It's only four months away!!!!!!

We cant wait either we will be there 9/20 - 9/26 at POP and FD!!! I am hoping we can get the ADR's we want esp on the 23rd as its my son's birthday. we are looking at Sci Fi, Yak & Yeti, CRT, CP, Garden Grill, rose and crown and le cellier

I dont mind the heat so much as we will do the indoor rides, shows when it is at its hottest in the daytime and i cant wait for the MNSSHP, as many times as i have been ive never done that!

Your son's B'day is the same day my Mom's B'day is. She will be flying in to join us for 4 days, and we are planning on taking her to 'Ohana for her birthday.

Are you going to order him a cake? I am wanting to but if I do I will get it and take it to her room. I don't want to miss the dessert at 'Ohana. I hear it is wonderful!!

Your dining choices sound great! I forgot that we will be going to CP too. We have never been there before but I have heard that it is great. We may go our first night.

9/6-9/12 with FREE dining! Woo Hoo!

We have a wicked busy schedule for us. Hopefully I can get an early flight because I want to have dinner at the T-Rex Restaurant(my son loves dinos!) our first night and maybe a round or two of mini golf.

Also we will be doing MNSSHP.

As for Adr's:
Been toying around with them but Chef Mickey's is a must because we have never eaten there and the Crystal Palace b/c my youngest loves Pooh.
I think those will be the only character meals we do.

My DF and I are getting married on 9/9

I am glad for the heat(i know...crazy, right?) the last time we went in Oct. and we went in the pool once b/c it was to chilly to swim

We are going Sept 28th, for our second trip. I am very nervous to get our ADR's as well, still trying to decide on the last few. We are also doing MNSSHP for the first time.

Have fun everyone!

i am definitely ordering him a cake and we are eating at CP (i hope) for his birthday meal. we also have 2 other kiddos who have request, so i am hoping FD doesnt kill us with the ADR's. we were lucky last year and the only one we could not get was CRT

WOW, Disney and a wedding!! You DO have a lot to plan. Congratulations!!

Talking about going to Chef Mickeys, it is fun. I had thought about skipping it this year but I couldn't do it.

DH & I are taking our 25th anniversary trip with Free Dining, a year and a half late due to his father's passing and my father's illness (My Dad's still hanging in there and I'm hoping we don't have to cancel our September trip, but hey... ya never know). Anyways, not only will we be celebrating our 25 (actually 26 1/2) anniversary, but come September we will have been togther 28 years... so 2 kids and a lifetime later... we are planning on taking our time, relaxing, maybe doing some drinking around the world and just being sure to catch the stuff DH hasn't had a chance to get to - like Soarin, maybe Test Track, The Seas in Epcot, The Safari in AK, drawing the characters at the Animation place in DHS, etc. Our dining is still up in the air, but I'm thinking maybe Sanaa, Big River Grill, Tokyo Dining or Tutto Italia (but we're Italian and eat Italian food every few days). I'm letting DH decide on food - but he better get plannning before I do it for him!!! I can't wait. I haven't had a full week vacation since DS graduated high school in June 2007!!!!! Just long weekends....

We'll be there from Sept 17-26 and staying at POFQ (with free dining!)! Can't wait! I'm feeling guilty because we don't have very much planned yet (I'm waiting for park hours to come out). I do know that we'll be doing a weekday MNSSHP this trip

We'll be there staying at POR from September 26-October 2 w/free dining. We're really going for my 40th birthday (10/22) but we'll actually be there on DH's 43rd birthday. I am trying to find something special to do for him, but I'm not sure what.

As far as ADR's, we hope to dine at LeCellier (11DS loves it) and MM Fantasmic package if possible. Other than that, I am pretty much open to trying new places. We'll definitely do Flame Tree BBQ at AK - that's a family favorite. In the past we've done Le Cellier (3x) Marrakesh (2x), Tony's (so so), 50's Prime Time (food was good but had a dud of an aunt), MM, 1900 Park Fare, Akershus (bkfast), CRT bkfast, H&V, Crystal Palace, and the restaurant in France (the name escapes me right now), Whispering Canyon, Boma.....

I'm looking to try something different in Epcot this time. Maybe Biergarten? Would that be fun for DH's birthday dinner or should I try for LeCellier for the b-day dinner. And who is making my birthday dinner?????

Happy early birthday to both of you!! My Mom will be celebrating her birthday there too. Have you registered your birthdays on the website to get your free gift when you get there? Since you already have park tickets you can get a 75.00 gift card, on your actual birthday. I'm sure you know that though.

I am ordering a cake for DH and I for our 20th wedding anniversary from 1900 Park Fare. I am ordering a cake for my mom from the Boardwalk bakery to be delivered to her room, or we will take it.
