Apparently I was unaware of how to link your ressie with the online booking thing. I am a techie's wife and was almost disowned for this. LOL.

But I gigured it out and in 10 minutes had my 2 ADRs for the first half of the trip. The 2nd half's 90 day mark is tomorrow so I will be loggin on tomorrow to get the other 2 I want.

Drum Roll Please....

Wed- day of arrival - 4:05pm Dinner @ The Plaza.

Thursday- 12 noon Lunch Sci-Fi


That's it. Anticlimactic , huh? We are trying to keep the ADRs to a minimum so we save a bit of $.

I really wanna try The Plaza but am sort of thinking of switching it to Ohana. I loved Ohana a few years back and since some of the changes we decided not to go back but I am somehow drawn to it. I dunno...any thoughts???

So far, so good!

I agree, try something new! Plaza looks good and if you were planning to be in MK that night it will be all the more convenient to finish eating and literally be right where you want to be.

We really enjoyed the Plaza last year. Even the kids really liked it. IT was a very relaxing meal, and wasn't terribly expensive!

When you go to pick the time it says "retrieve reservation" and all u do is put in the confirm # and your tele # and then any ressies u check out with are linked to it! It was very easy!

It's appeal was the price and the good reviews I have heard lately. Actually we are planning to end up in Epcot that night, but 4pm is early enough to wing it.

That is what happened to us last year. It wasn't by choice but they bumped us up from the ASsports to the Yacht club for 2 nights. I was psyched to be staying at the YC for free dining for about $100 /room/night. But when we had to move on the 3rd day to the ASSports it was a huge bummer. We begged, pleaded with the YC staff. We said we'd pay any price to stay there the rest of the week but they were all booked up.

I think switching rooms the other way (from value to Delux) would be great though!

Wed- 6:30am flight. arrive hotel by noon at the latest. late afternoon lunch/dinner @ The Plaza. What time should I make it for?? Night EMH Epcot!!! F&W till midnight (or until we drop)

I love eating around the WS

**I am also thinking of going to the cast connection this afternoon for a while, so that may cut into our time. But I wanna CM shop!I also wanna do it when it's just KC, Pants & I so I don't feel bad about leaving anyone else out of it. I don't even know what that is so I can't help you


Thurs
- DHS morning, sci fi lunch Evening: ??

OR MK Morning, Plaza for Lunch
Plaza is great for table service on a budget

Fri-AK most of the day. Will eat Flame Tree for lunch, dinner?? Maybe at the resort or DTD?! Guess it depends on where we end up.
Flame tree

Sat- check into AKL , epcot all day, F&W (friends coming this day)

Sun-Morning-?? , Afternoon tea at GF for ladies only first available seating. Boma dinner, late evening. Night vision goggles. Personally I would rather do Boma


Mon- 1900 park fare breakfast, MK, flight home
A nice character breakfast before leaving sounds awesome!

PS- no November hours yet so I am winging it with those. I can only make the few ressies tomorrow so it's not too stressful but I need to pin down the days and the times. HELP!!!

I really like the Plaza! I'm sure you will enjoy it. It's a great little place! You'll have to let us know how you like SciFi. I've never eaten there.
