So I'm at a loss as to what to plan now I've got the basic itinerary, and my dining set. 2 passports are done and I've sent out the application for the 3rd one. Too early to start packing

I'm in the same boat, once all the ADR's are made it is kind of down time, I like to tweek my plans by searching for new or different things to do at WDW, it could be a show or a meet & greet etc

About a month before the trip I start putting my days together from all the info I gathered, As I put it together, I have a few different plans for each day, then I try to figure what will work best, the end result is usally a combo of the rough plans

Not sure what to do here! Help fellow commandos! We leave in 2 weeks and I keep tweaking (should just leave well enough alone ). I just snagged a lunch ADR to Le Cellier. I debated and debated and cancelled one early in planning and was never able to get it back. Now I don't know where to fit it in or if I should just cancel and forget it. It may be one of those over-hyped ones and I'd love some input. Please no comments on we have too many ADRs or it's too much food etc, we are two adults traveling and happy with our three meals a day. I've done it before so I know what I'm getting myself into...tons of yummy food. Staying at Pop, on DxDPP, and driving everywhere unless hopping between Epcot and MK.

Our plans are this.

4/28: arrival day. Dinner at 'Ohana @ 4:30. Then MK. Dessert Party @ 9

4/29: Epcot. Akurshus @ 9:30, Chefs @ 2:30, Teppan Edo at 7:30.

4/30: IOA. Kona at 7:30, Then IOA. Yachtsman at 8:30 PM

5/1: MK/Epcot. Crystal Palace @ 8:10, Via Napoli @ 2, The Plaza @ 7

5/2: DHS. 1900 Park Fare at 8:30, Mama Melrose or Sci Fi @ 2, Captains Grille @ 8:30

5/3: AK Tusker House @ 8:30, Yak and Yeti @ 1, Wolfgang Puck Cafe @ 7

5/4: leaving day. Ohana's @ 9:30. Then to MK until 3 or 4. Tonys @ 1:30

My Le Cellier ressie is for 2:30 on 4/29. If I include Le Cellier, my plan is to move Chefs to 5/1 and then get rid of Via Napoli. I also thought of bumping Via Napoli to 5/4 and getting rid of Tonys. However, I really want to spend the last of our time in MK. Grab a dole whip, see the 3:00 parade and leave. If I do a lunch in Epcot our last day, then either we'd have to eat earlier when not hungry or at the end of the day and then no dole whip and 3:00 parade.

Any advice? Which is better Via Napoli or Le Cellier. I know, I know two totally different types of food. I'd be getting the mushroom filet and cheddar soup at Le Cellier. Pizza probably at Via Napoli. We've also never done either so really wouldn't know what we're missing I suppose.

I would keep both Le Cellier and Via Napoli and bump Chefs. Otherwise this looks great! Have a fabulous time!

Thanks for the responses. I can't do them both, no room. And if I bump anything it will be Via Napoli or Le Cellier and definitely not chefs. Has anyone had any experiences with them? I really want to know which is better between Via Napoli and Le Cellier.

Me personally give Le Cellier a high rating, we love it there and is part of our every time list

I can't give you a pro or con on Via Napoli since we never ate there

And if no one minds me answering, yes, Le Cellier did go up to 2 TS credits, but only for dinner. Lunch remains 1 TS.

Thanks so much for the quick answer! DH and I are trying to decide if we are going to do another Winter Break trip with the kids....We are going on a 4 day cruise with them in August on the Dream and then staying at POR for 4 days after....BUT we are not going to the parks! We are going to Sea World and Aquatica instead. We decided to stay at POR for a few reasons...first we LOVE the resort and second we are taking advantage of the room only discount!

We are planning on a big Universal/Disney trip next August, but I have a feeling that we are going to miss the parks after not going there since last summer (I know you all will understand!!!) So, I suggested to DH that we take a 5 night trip over Winter Break (we are both teachers) ....

My idea was to not tell the kids and to surprise them on Christmas morning with the suitcases packed, somehow surprise them (don't have that part figured out yet), throw everyone in the car, and drive 17 hrs (yes 17) down to Disney. (We always drive since there are 5 of us...)

I think I have him convinced....what do you think????
