I will say, we probably could have split a meal, though-they have these 'adult' milk shakes that are great but really filling, so I remember wishing that we had just split a sandwich or something after drinking those.
That's what I'm kind of thinking is going to happen...I'm a pretty easily distracted person!

Thank you for that tip! I'm glad you mentioned that! We were deliberating Beaches and Cream for dinner that night, but we're thinking about doing Sci-Fi on the day we arrive, so I'm probably going to book it for around 12:30 or 1 to be safe (we land around 10).

Anyways, I'm worried we won't be hungry for dinner until it's prime time at the ADR-less Beaches and Cream. Maybe splitting a meal there would be a good option.

(Is it strange I'm concerned about our hunger levels more than 6 months from now? )

I hope you get to Jellyrolls... we finally did after refusing to pay the cover on a previous trip. It was totally worth it; they are great!!

We love Sci Fi. I'm kinda obsessed with onion rings, and theirs are awfully tasty. Mmmm. Is it lunch, yet?
I'm thinking the toothpick thing is just a suggestion...

I hope so too! I've heard such fun things about it!

Ooh I love onion rings. Hahaha it's dangerous to think about Disney food between meals!

Um, what?!?! Oh man, Illuminations will never be the same (at least, for the entire TRI-STATE AREA!!!)!! When are you going? I'll PM you our dates!

Hahaha I think he's just perturbed by the idea of the curds, but given one, I would be shocked if he didn't take a bite. I love Disney food too! Chicken just seems extra awesome and magical in Lake Buena Vista.

What airline are you waiting on? I know, I was starting to click on JetBlue's site like 5 times a day!
As I PMed you, our dates do overlap, all those who value their hearing should probally be warned

Being a Wisconsinite, Cheese Curds (fried or un-fried alike) are a basic food group.

Mmmm... magical chicken, like the sticky wings from Kona Cafe. Mmmmmmm.

Frontier or AirTran/Southwest. I so wish jet blue flew out of Milwaukee. I'm mad jealous you have your flights already.

Yay!!!!!! Oh man, even if we don't attempt a rendition of "We Go On", people will still probably be partially deaf after I start yelling "JOANNA!!!!!!!!!!" across World Showcase Lagoon. Wingnut is CONSTANTLY telling me that I'm being too loud (and that's on a normal day!) .

Hey, I'm definitely planning on giving those curds a shot! They're not as much a prevalent item in the Northeast (at least where I'm from), so I'm intrigued!

Boo I never got to try those sticky wings, because of my ginger allergy! I saw all these people around me having them, and was becoming super-envious!

I'll cross my fingers that they release their schedules soon for you!!!

Um....maybe it's strange but you're asking the wrong person here, since I just spent all of last week "finalizing for real this time" all of our Dec. ADRs.....

Hahaha finalizing for real in December now??? My finalizing for real ADR plan happens probably a week before we go. Before then, no guarantees!

I totally see the Mickeys in those sprinkles (or jimmies, whichever you want to call them). Is that the So Delicious coconut ice cream? It's actually really good, isn't it?

Wingnut and I took another look at our dining plans, and started arranging our days, leading to an ADR addition to the plans!

Sci-Fi Dine-In??
Excellent choice! We truly love it here, the food is good and the atmosphere is incredibly unique.

Wingnut and I are pretty excited about going here. To say that he adores the B-movies from the 1950's is a huge understatement. So the previews are a huge draw for him, and I enjoy watching them as well. I also think the atmosphere of Sci-Fi is really fun, as much as I am not a huge fan of the whole "sharing a car with another group of people" thing. But I can get past that (she says while sitting on her couch at home )...
Oh, then Wingnut will LOVE it here! The clips are hilarious and offer so much entertainment. My favorite was the Attack of the 50 Foot Woman! I also really enjoyed all the cutesy dancing food commercials they used to use for the snack bar at real drive-ins. So fun!

As for tweaking ADR's, honey I've been known to tweak while AT Disney... I'm not ashamed to admit it, go ahead and judge me now!

I think you and Wingnut will do just fine, tweaking is part of the process anyway. It's hard trying to imagine what you'll be hungry for 180 days beforehand.

When planning a Disney trip, no concern is strange. We've all done the same thing when it comes to planning our ADR's, yet in the real world, I don't have a clue what I'm eating - when, where, or why - six months from now.

Sci Fi sounds really fun! It seems like everyone's complaint was that having a large group was cumbersome in the cars, so a group of two sounds like the perfect size for Sci Fi.

I really wanted to try Beaches and Cream, but with no reservations and since we're eating at the Plaza (plus five zillion other burger places it feels like), my boyfriend chose Kouzzina. I'm hoping to convince him to at least stop by for some ice cream!

It is the So Delicious!!! Good job identifying your non-dairy frozen confections!!! I liked this brand, it was pretty good! The only thing was it was slightly pricey, so I felt compelled to make each spoonful count!

I haven't been to Sci-Fi in YEARS, so I'm really excited to go back! And I know Wingnut will love the clips and the atmosphere, those B-movies are right up his alley!

Hahaha I totally called Disney Dining from MK last December! That was when we were kinda "meh" about going to Kona Cafe for lunch, and were considering something else.

I can barely decide what I'm hungry for in the next hour, let alone 6 months from now! But for Disney, I'll definitely make an educated guess!

It's so funny how you think about these things SO far in advance. "Do you think you'll want steak in 2012?" . Oh the things that planning a trip to WDW does to us...

I remember my mom saying that when we went to Sci-Fi when I was younger, she didn't like the seating, since I sat in a different row than them. But I definitely think for us it should be fine!

Wingnut and I really enjoy Kouzzina. They have a great variety of items there, despite not having the whimsical atmosphere of Beaches and Cream. I definitely vote to stop by there for ice cream! (And one of the roast beef subs there - they're really good! )

Mickey mail!!!

I love when Disney Destinations sends me mail!



I remember for our trip last year this came in a whole monorail-shaped packet. I think park maps were involved too.

Sassagoula Floatworks has gumbo? Awesome.



I love when Disney praises my trip planning decision making.



Thanks for the suggestions, Disney! (But we aren't planning to go to either this trip! )



Joanna - this made me laugh



These are more like it!



Does it make me sound horribly uncultured to say that I really don't get the appeal of Cirque?



I'm really really REALLY resolving to see Wishes this trip!



Shopping! That's something I don't need to resolve to do!



Maybe it's me, but 71 degrees does not really spell prime water park weather in my mind.



In other news, my birthday is on Sunday! (I love those little partying smilies )

Those must dos are kind of boring... maybe Disney should hire me to come up with the new Must-Do lists. They'd be much more alcohol infused And I think I could come up with much more interesting photos to compliment my "must dos"

You should make a point to watch wishes (Best to do it on an EMH night - because you can avoid the rush out of the park by enjoying more rides!) There's a really nice spot by the Christmas Shop in Liberty Square that is really uncrowded but still nice and close. Another not crowded spot is on the "lower" path in frontierland - the one that looks like a doc, and takes you almost to Splash. Can you tell that I Loooooove Wishes?

71 isn't too bad for waterpark weather - I wouldn't do it... but last time we were there in January it was in the 50s, and we were on the bus with a family that was going to the waterpark. Brrrrrr. I suppose if your kids love waterslides, but no thank you!

P.S. Happy Birthday in advance!!

love how you broke down the stuff inside and you have yet to see Wishes...omgosh you just MUST see it! In Nove we saw it like 6 times from various places in/out of the park

I am a big fan of watching near Tomorrowland so you can see Tink fly by!

and shopping oh yes shopping
