Is this the Twilight ZONE?

I'm looking forward to seeing what you come up with for plans, food, etc.
Welcome to the other side

I really feel so under prepared for this trip, but there's just not that much that needs to be planned...

Ok, so I think what we'll do is go to DL (obviously) on Wednesday.

Thursday after breakfast I think we'll do DCA...we've already decided not to do the MM, so I think we'll hit fewer crowds at DCA.

Friday we can do DL, we have lunch there anyway.

Saturday I think we'll go to MM, then we have the tour at 9:30. After the tour we can hit all of our favorites

hey! i'm curious to see how this planning goes.
i've been once- but totally on a whim. we showed up at like 11am with a wheelchair. so i'm anxious to read on how to do it properly. i'd love to go back soon.
maybe your park hours are longer just because the weather is good? the day we went, it seemed like it took forever to get into the gates- maybe 45 minutes or so- but it never really felt crowded.

LOL It is really different over here.

Is there no planning or ADRs with a DL trip? I guess I need to browse around a bit to make sure I fit in here.

Thanks for joining! Was there anything you did on your trip that is a "must do?"

They're still priority seatings at DLR. But you don't really need to make them unless you're going to one of the more popular restaurants, like Goofy's Kitchen, Ariel's Grotto (both character meals) or the Blue Bayou. The time to call opens at 60 days out. I waited until we were back from our cruise, so just over 30 days out and then made them...I had my pick of times! The one place where we're planning on doing dinner the first night...I didn't even bother! It feels so unnatural. Kind of nice though, it seems like the trip will be a little more relaxed

And I really recommend that if you want to eat at the Carnation Cafe that you make PS. But, you're right for the most part depending on what time of year you go on whether you actually want to do the PS. With my June trip we will be doing the PS.

The Carnation Cafe doesn't really appeal to me. We're definitely doing Cafe Orleans, which I do have a PS for! And Storyteller's for breakfast, which I also have a PS for...but that's it! For the Jazz Kitchen, if we eat there we'll probably do so early because of the time change, so I don't think I'll need one there (unless you recommend otherwise!) The rest I think we'll just be grabbing as we go

You know with the Jazz Kitchen I think that if you want to eat there, I doubt you'll need the PS unless it is a weekend night and then I think you can call that morning and make the arrangements. The only places I know you probably want a PS for are the ESPN Zone and the House of Blues. Especially if you are doing the Sunday brunch at the HOB. I really want to eat at Cafe Orleans too. And instead of Storytellers we are doing Goofy's Kitchen because Belen's family has never done a character meal.

Goofy's looks really good, I just got a little sticker shock from it!



I'm so excited to escape winter! Not too far away now! This is what I woke up to this morning, which isn't considered a bad snowstorm here. Enough to close schools since it fell overnight, so it's harder to get plowed, but by noon it'll be business as usual!

Wow, and I was whining about the rain.

Hopefully it doesn't ice over on you guys! Ugh, hate ice. Funny thing is, this is our first "major" snow event this season! Our weather guys are so excited.
