Drum roll, please!

WELLLLLLL.... Here is my itinerary for the trip! There are a few kinks to work out, still, but I am pretty happy with the plans. I did make some adjustments once I was able to review TGM's park touring recommendations.

What we are still discussing is our actual departure date. We may drive down Friday night, or Sat morning early, which would put us there late Saturday afternoon, requiring an extra night in WDW. If so, we are looking at Pop! for a night, so we can get a good night's sleep, shower, etc. and make it over to BLT and the Contemporary early that morning, so we can get our KTTW cards, with our DDP, etc. So we'll see... for the AP discount, the price is really reasonable, so this might make sense as we get closer to the trip. There was availability everywhere, so I don't think that one night will fill up too quickly. BUT in the mean time, here is the itinerary I DO have set in place at this point... I do have a few plans I would like feedback on, but will pose those questions later. Anyhow, let me know what you think so far!!

Your plans look great.
How long is the drive from MD? We're driving down to meet my nephews and flying from Reagan.

I love it. Le Cellier twice!

What's the BC pirate cruise? I didn't know about that....

Blue Zoo is high on my list for a date night. Which I don't think we are going to do but the menu looks fab and from BC...perfect!

A couple of questions: We're getting APs in August and have considered TiW. Is it worth getting on the dining plan? Can you use it for CS and TS meals?

Can't wait to read more about your plans!
I am sorry I missed your post! I am really excited to stay at BLT. We saw the model at SSR back in 2008, too, and wow, NICE! NO, we are not DVC members, but we rent points all the time. We do have a timeshare that we can exchange with Disney, so that has worked out as well. We really liked SAB in December, and originally were at Boardwalk, then a conversation that Christmas with WigD convinced us to stick with Beach Club, so we could really take advantage of SAB. We are looking forward to it!!!! They love the sand/dig area, so I know they will hang out there, and we can lounge and not worry about anyone going under! They don't swim with full confidence or ability yet. If we were to ever buy DVC, we would definitely do it like WigD and Shocker!

Well, the TIW card has done us good for sure, and I think we have definitely put it to use -- especially at Christmas with my DBIL and his friend who joined us. But we have used it on all of our trips, so I think it has paid for itself in savings at this point. It is $75.00 so you have to know that you are ultimately spending the "savings" in order to recoup your upfront cost. I am sure we did or will have at the least by this summer. We always get drinks with dinner, and any OOP meals, and aps we might get along with the DDP, so this discount basically is the TIP you have to pay anyhow (which is included, so you can think of it that way).
We definitely take advantage and get full value for the DDP. But we pick restaurants where you get the most for your Disney $ if you know what I mean. Some character meals, more expensive entrees, etc. With the holiday surcharge, that adds a little more to the value of the DDP as well -- though somewhere I heard DVC members didn't have to pay that extra $... Anyhow the DDP is easily a good deal for us, but if we ate the way we normally did we wouldn't be buying dessert, etc... so perhaps it would be less anyhow. In Feb we went completely OOP. We didn't eat full CS meals very often, and we didn't buy dessert, so for that alone I would say we didn't spend as much. For these long trips, though, I like the DDP. The TIW card is only for table service meals. You can use your AP discount in certain places, though, so that discount might work at times too... the restaurants are listed online.

It is about 13 hours for us. LONG, but it really goes surprisingly quick.

Le Cellier, TWICE. YES. DH's request. So I put it on opposite ends of the trip! The Beach Club Albatross Pirate Cruise is another similar Pirate Cruise (like the one out of the GF)... where they take the kid participants on a two hour excursion, feed them some junk food, then return again! We were scheduled for the cruise LAST summer, at the GF, but this time we decided on the Albatross one, since it takes off from the BCV, and this gives us time to get organized in the villa, pack in peace, and give them something fun to do.

Yeah, Blue Zoo is definitely our style, and both are in walking distance. I wan't to know what Anita and Marc thought of the Bistro before we decided. The menu at Blue Zoo is definitely exciting to us!

I think so, I think it will be, thanks CP! We are curious about Vero, and so if that is what we do, I think it will be a nice return home adventure.

When I add on, I think I'll follow Anita's advice and buy resale. And that may be sooner rather than later

So, if I understand this correctly, you can use TIW to cover any additionals that the DDP does not at TS meals? Hmmm so I can use it for discounts on drinks? Since we're saving on the APs with the DVC discount, TIW won't really cost us anything. Talk about Fuzzy Disney Math

I get antsy on the 3.5 hour drive (with no traffic) from NYC to MD. Traffic is the worst trying to get from NYC to NJ.

YES, you are correct! You can use it on anything else you get, drinks, appetizers, etc. so yes, it can really help out in this case! BUT they include a 15% tip on whatever you purchase with it -- which is fine, because then you just need to remember to tip LESS on your real DDP bill... I have found that not all the servers advertise this fact each time all the time, so make sure you check to make sure they know you are aware... because in essence you could over tip. (which isn't a bad thing, but you want it to be at your discretion, not unawares...) Oh, and yes, that discount saved is well spent on the TIW!!!! I love Disney Math

Well, we drive at night, and our Volvo has DVD's built in so basically, we drive for a few hours, stop for dinner, the kids watch a movie after, then it is time for sleep... they wake up and we are practically there. We have flown, taken the train, and driven down. At Christmas, it was a good thing we drove, or we would not have made it! We barely made it driving as it was! Still, we are paying for airfare to CA and the extra cruise, so saving $ to drive has been cost effective in that respect... talk about fuzzy Disney Math!!!

So I know that I already posted my whole week's itinerary, but I wanted to share a few notes about the plans.

New restaurants for us this trip are:


Yak and Yeti for lunch
Sci Fi Diner for lunch

Rose and Crown for dinner
Tutto Italia for dinner

AND Blue Zoo OR the Bistro. We have to figure that one out still...


I thought to go to the MK our first day in Disney and to have lunch at The Plaza, but after going back and forth, I went ahead with Yak and Yeti... I think it is a good choice.

I have not really decided, but I am leaning with Yak and Yeti. If we don't do AK that day, we will only have one day at the AK, and during the summer, we really enjoy this park -- so I am thinking it is the best plan for us.

I am also really curious about Y & Y -- I saw a few reviews on other TRs I have been watching this year, and everything was positive in review. So I think it will be a good choice to try!

There are a few new Quick Service choices, and of course Wolfgang Puck!! Get me to DTD! The rest of the TS choices are our favorites, and I was so glad to get the places we wanted!

For each day of our trip I have tried to come up with a new experience or attraction to visit. I am still coming together with my daily plans, and I will start to share those as we make our way through April and May! June is just around the corner!!!

Happy Easter weekend everyone!!!

We have eaten at all four of those restaurants and enjoyed our meals at each one.

Yak and Yeti has an outstanding drinks menu -- I highly recommend the Avalanche! Partly because it is fun to say, "A-va-lanche!" as you are sipping on it!

Sci-Fi has the most incredible theming! The movie clips they show are absolutely hysterical! It reminded me of watching Mystery Science Theater when I was in college!

Rose and Crown -- nothing beats the Welsh Dragon and the fish and chips!

Tutto Italia -- sigh. Say hello to those dishy waiters for me!
