Get up early in the morning on Saturday and get to the park entrance at 7am in the morning so I could eat at the Plaza Inn for breakfast. I am doing this breakfast so my dad's colleague's daughters will get autographs in their books. I am doing this solo since it does feel weird to me, but with the confidence from Goofy_Mom, Sherry, and the other DISers who gave me confidence to do this for the girls. I wanted to eat at the Plaza Inn for breakfast since I was a little kid.

After what I have read on a thread that you can go on the rides after you finished your breakfast before the park opens at its schedule time. It would be nice to do that, but someone needs to clarify that you can do that or not. After that, I will just go around the park and take more pics of the food porn and merchandise.

Around 10 am I will head on back over to BW Stovalls and pack everything and head on back to Sacramento.
That is how I understand it, you go in eat and when you are done since it's MM you don't go back out the gates so you are free to go into FL and TL for the remaining MM time.

Have you done a character meal before? Since you want all those autographs it may take some time for each Character to make the rounds. So I wouldn't plan on getting done with breakfast and into the park too quick.

Is 7am the earliest you can enter the park for you breakfast or the time of your reservation? If you can get in earlier you can get some really good empty park pics in town square and on Mainstreet.

This is what I have read on this thread PS @ the Plaza Inn before park opening??? that after you finish breakfast, you can walk into DL during MM. That is what Goofy_Mom said on the thread that you can go in the park and go to TL & FL. after breakfast.

I have done character meal in the past, I haven't done one in almost 7 years. Yes, you are right that it will take time to eat in the morning and get the autographs from the characters. So I am planning to stay in the restaurant until DL opens to the public at 8am.

My reservation is at 7:20am and I only have 40 min until DL opens. I asked for the earliest time in just less than a month when I made my reservation. That is the earliest time they had available on Saturday. I can always take pictures of MS when I walk in the park with the CM.

Now that the Halloween season at DL is over, I still like to post pics of the Halloween season.

Mickey in his costume right by GMwML


Pluto later during the day


I also thought it would be nice to post my dog Halloween costume with my neighbors dogs also in their costumes.

The white dog is mine while the other two are my next door neighbors. All three are good dogs and obey our commands really well. When we asked them to stay they stay and as you can see from my pics that they did a good job posing in front of me.

Oh, they are good dogs, so that why. Not because you are the dog whisperer?

I just noticed you monorail pics. That is a cool spread, its nice to see the old school rides in the sky they still have at WDW.

Thx. Well actually, my dog was a little bit crazy with other people when they approach her in a mean way. Whenever people get closer to her, she was a little bit mean but it was in a self defense way. But it took her some time until she has become a better dog.

Thx for liking my monorail pics. I just love the monorail so much at DL and WDW. I want to go to Tokyo DL one day and ride on there monorails. I can't believe the monorail has been in DL for over 50 years and still does look like the future of transportation. I have plenty of monorail pics of both WDW and DL. If you want, I do have more different monorail pics around both resorts.

It was a shame to hear about that accident last year in the summer time and not to be able to ride in the front was a bummer. I'm hoping that when I go to WDW in next month, they will let guests ride in the front. But what I have been reading so far on the WDW thread, they still aren't letting guests ride in the front cabin.

Ok, this is not something you need to do but since you are going West o East coast Disney style, maybe you will create a photo type essay of corrosponding rides?

I just like posting my pics on my thread since not too many see my pics on my flickr account. Not too many people look at my photos and it would be nice if they look at it.

Nice Bret. The Engine Tour should be really cool since it's a bigger rail system in Florida.

Here is a link of the Disney’s Behind the Magic of Our Steam Trains on the WDW thread that I have read from other DISers who have done the tour. It's on the 2nd post that the DISer posted about the tour when they experience it. It said that the age limit is 10 years or older. I am looking forward to this tour when I go to WDW next month. I am planning on doing the tour on my birthday December 11, 2010 on a Saturday. Than the next day I will be at the MK for MVMCP. Talk about a lot of great activities at the MK during that weekend.
