ADRs are booked! We booked online Friday evening, as soon as I got home from work. It was our first attempt at online booking. It took a little time to figure out just exactly what we were doing but once we got the hang of it, it only took about 20 minutes. Has anyone else had trouble finding the “Add to Disney Dining Cart” button? The white writing on the pale, pale, pale blue background was almost indistinguishable on our computer. Once we finally found that things moved along smoothly. So here’s what we have:

Friday, Oct 15th – Rose and Crown at 1:00 PM
Saturday, Oct 16th – 50s Prime Time Café at 12:25 PM
Monday, Oct 18th – Chef Mickey’s at 9:10 AM
Tuesday, Oct 19th – Whispering Canyon Café at 7:30 AM

I’m really happy about the ADR for Whispering Canyon. I was not sure we would be able to get anything earlier than 8:00. We have made it a tradition to have breakfast at Whispering Canyon Café on our departure day. Breakfast at 7:30 means we can get on the road that much earlier.

OK, time to get on with the calendar. Thursday is Magic Kingdom day. I like to hit early EMH. It’s a good time to do all the attractions in Fantasyland and about the only time we ride Peter Pan. We are also planning to go to MNSSHP Thursday night. We think it might be less crowded than going on Sunday.

We have scheduled Epcot on Friday, at least during the day. We will be doing Rose and Crown for lunch and are considering the possibility of Sunshine Seasons for breakfast. I guess that will depend on how much we want to get done that day. If we think we might need the extra time it would be better to eat at CBR before heading to the park. We are going to try to avoid the F&W Festival crowds on the weekends so we will be heading over to MK in the evening.

Saturday will be our first opportunity to take advantage of early EMH at HS. Usually we are either arriving or departing on Saturday and never have the chance. We will be having lunch at Prime Time Café, one of our newly discovered favorites. We ate here for the first time on our Sep 08 trip and really enjoyed the food and the experience so now we try to make that one of our table service treats. MK is having a late night on Saturday so we will be back over there for the evening.

Sunday is going to be Animal Kingdom day. We were hoping to avoid early EMH here as our first experience with that found the park to be exceptionally crowded. Last trip we chose a non-EMH day and the crowds were much more manageable. Unfortunately, the way the schedule has worked out for this trip, we aren’t going to be able to avoid EMH day.

AK is usually a shorter day for us so we will have a bit of time to relax back at the resort. Maybe we will actually make it to the spa this time. We say we are going to every trip but haven’t made it yet. We will probably head for Downtown Disney in the evening. Di likes to be sure she hasn’t missed any shopping opportunities.

Monday morning it’s breakfast with Chef Mickey. This will be our first time at this character meal and I am really looking forward to it. We have a 9:10 ressie so we will be able to sleep in a bit.

Then we are going to attempt something we have not tried before, 3 parks in one day. We will head to MK after breakfast to ride PotC and HM one last time, plus any other rides, attractions and shopping we might want to do. Then it’s over to Epcot for the same thing. We will take our usual afternoon break, perhaps a little later than usual depending on how much we still want to finish. HS had late EMH Monday night and we hope to make it over there for part of the evening. How long that will be will depend on how much packing we still have left to do. I would also like to be back pretty early as we have a long travel day the next day.

Hey shopping is good for you and the economy and shopping at Disney is even better. I got an email from Disney the other day about buying new Marvel shirts. I am actually looking forward to buying my Disney Marvel shirt to wear to Universal's Islands of Adventure. We are even going to get a locker at Epcot to store all the packages we (notice how I said we) will be getting at MK. But Epcot is my favorite shopping venue, Mitsukoshi Dept Store, here I come!

Tuesday will be our last day at WDW. We will be up bright and early (well, early anyway) to finish packing and load up the car before heading over to Wilderness Lodge for our early ADR at Whispering Canyon Café. Then it will be time to hit the road. I will be hoping for good driving weather so we won't be too late getting home on Wednesday because it will be back to work on Thursday.

Actually I was really surprised about the 7:30am ADR at Whispering Canyon, I didnt think they opened that early. Well at least we can get breakfast done and on the road early. Last year when we went in March, we took 2 1/2 days to go down to WDW, and back again, and after breakfast at Whispering Canyon we went over to DTD and spent way too much time there. We were supposed to leave by 1pm to be on the road home, I dont think we left til after 2pm. I hate not being on time.

Party Time! Just called for our MNSSHP tickets. We will be going Thursday, October 14th. Hope to see some other Dissers there. Guess it's time to start working on that costume.

I probably should have posted this a couple of days ago but I've been fighting a cold and it's really been wearing me down. I have to say how disappointed I was to learn free dining only runs to Oct 2nd, just one week before we leave. I was really really hoping we would finally be able to take advantage of this offer. Let's keep our fingers crossed that Disney decides to extend the offer. Di and I are working on additional table services options just in case.

Yes, I think we have 3 more tables set for sure, Yak and Yeti, Liberty Tree Tavern and Ragland Road. However, we are going to need 9 if they go with Free Dining for our stay, and we only have a total of 7 now. So we still need 2 more and it's starting to be a real hard decision. Well, here's hoping we will need to make that decision.

Our MNSSHP tickets arrived in the mail the other day. I must say I was a bit disappointed that they did not have a Halloween theme. I thought I remembered that from our 2008 trip but I coould be wrong. But wouldn't it be cool if they had the hitchhiking ghost from HM on them? Instead we have Minnie and Pluto.

Wow, that means we have our room, our ADRS, our park hoppers and our MNSSHP tickets! Guess we'd better start looking into Universal tickets so we can get over to Harry Potterland

Oh no! Say it ain't so, Joe! No Small World for us this time! Whatever shall we do!?! This is so sad, we are not really Small World fanatics (especially after reading that part of the first Kingdom Keepers book), but the ride was usually not so crowded and it was good for a nice cool relaxing rest. Sigh Well maybe we will be lucky and they will finish their refurb early.

And now we get the word that One Man's Dream is going down for refurb while we are there. *sigh* Wow, the attractions are dropping like flies. We dont usually have a lot to do at DHS, since we dont like the thrill rides, so we always make time for this. I wonder what the refurb is going to be. I hope they dont change the movie, I love the movie, it always makes me teary-eyed. I guess we will have more time to stand in line for Toy Story Mania.

Oh, I see it's been a while since i posted here. Sorry, I have been over on the Universal threads, trying to get info on Harry Potterland. I still would like to know how IOA and the Studios compare in size to Disney.

Hi,

I hadn't heard about One Man's Dream being down. DANG! But on the plus side did you hear about the new carmel shop in Germany? YUMMM!
