Okay so everytime I have gone to open this thread, Julia has been lurking!

Here is what we are thinking for meals.

Be Our Guest-lunch probably as Julia cringed at the dinner menu
Teppan Edo- maybe we could all do this one? Julia is a bit nervous about eating with strangers.
Raglan Road-lunch or dinner

That's it so far, she is driving me nuts!

We're big foodies (as you may be able to tell by our chubbiness ). DH is more adventurous than me, but I can always find something I'd like to try or already like.

I definitely want to try Teppan Edo (probably for dinner). We usually do Morocco for lunch (the gyros, OMG) and Morgan has a turkey leg, so I'd like to do Teppan Edo for a dinner.

CRT is a tradition for us. Usually a weekday morning first thing.

Be Our Guest is a definite. Probably the night we do CRT.

Morgan really wants to try Tony's, she must have a little Italian in her somewhere our bloodlines.

I've never done Akershus, so that's a possibility.

I'd love to try SciFi too.

We've done all the AK restaurants, so we'd probably plan a resort meal whichever day we do AK. Has anyone done the Barbecue?

If I had my way, we'd be on our way to Orlando right now (stupid Nature's Classroom!) for the week.

we definately need to plan lunch at Teppan Edo then! Cassey, its such a fun way to eat! I'm sure Julia will be fine with Megan and Morgan tagging along too!
hmm, guess I need to go check out the menu at BOG....
Jen, do you mean the BBQ at the campground? nope haven't done that
Tony's...we've had ADR our last two trips and canc them...might be a possibility too
Sci-Fi is good IMHO...heard a lot of people don't like it, but we've always had good food and service
Akerhaus for breakfast is good....know they serve more Norweign (sp) type food at lunch/dinner, not sure we are up for that

wish it was next year and we would all be getting ready to go....

Julia says if you and Megan and Jennifer's family come she will do Teppan Edo.
We loved Sci-Fi when we went!
We also enjoyed Tony's, but Julia hasn't met a pasta she doesn't like.
Askershus we tried for dinner, we all enjoyed our meals but it was a few years ago. I haven't looked at the menu lately.

Talked Julia into the Candlelight Processional she wants to try Rose and Crown. She has been on an UK kick lately, even started calling me mum!

Now she is saying maybe to BOG for dinner, she saw a picture of the Ratatoulle(sp?) and thinks she would like to try that. I always end up trading meals when they say this!

I too wish it was next year and this trip was only a few days away!

going to have to start looking at menus so I know how much to start saving for our sit down meals.

Keeping my fingers crossed for free dining for at least part of the trip. If they keep the dates like this year, we would just make it for check in.

Julia asked about MVMCP, told her she would have to miss more school, she is thinking about it, what she doesn't know is she is missing school no matter what.

We talked about Fantasmic package, she's just not sure yet. If we do it will be Mama Melrose's for lunch, dinner just cuts it too close!

We did the Fantasmic package with Mama Melrose last year. Had a late lunch/early dinner reservation for 3:00. It was just right, timewise. (I was not impressed with the food at Mama Melrose though).

What were the dates for free dining this year, Cassey? One reason I decided to book Thursday the 21st (Ack! One year today!!) was because they usually end it on the Friday before Turkey Day. If they stay true to form, as long as you check in before the end date, your entire stay will be free dining.

Hmmm, I'm thinking an Akershus breakfast one day with a late lunch/early dinner at Teppan Edo?

on being at the one year mark Jen

Cassey, Julia is going to be so surprised

free dining would be good but I don't think AofA LM rooms qualified for it this year, so hopefully it will next year

haven't eaten at Mama's for a few years...so not sure what we will choose for the F pkg

Jennifer,, they cut free dining off on November 15 this year so as long as they don't change it for next year and they include LM rooms, we should be good!

I like the late lunch/early dinner at Teppan Edo idea!

The 15th was the Thursday before Thanksgiving this year. Next year, the Thursday before Thanksgiving will be the 21st. We're flying in the 21st, most likely.

If they don't include LM rooms, we'll be moving. As much as I'd love to stay in AoA, I'd love free food more. We'd probably move to Pop, so we could still check out AoA easily.

The free dining for October-December dates(some dates were excluded) became available in July for 2012. Not sure what will happen for 2013. I need to make a plan soon so that I can book air travel when it opens up. I am leaning towards leaving in the afternoon on the Thursday before Thanksgiving so that we can attend the christmas party on Friday. Julia would only miss 3 1/2 days of school, which isn't too bad.

We'll leave on Thursday first thing (6:00 or 7:00 am flight), so Morgan will miss 4 full days (they don't have any school Wednesday before Thanksgiving). I'm not all that concerned, she's a good student who can easily make up anything she misses, and family time is important!

think Megan will be missing the most school out of all the kids....

Tues before full day, Wed 1/2 day and the whole week after Thanksgiving...I'm not worried about her missing school either, has always made up any work with no issues...figure it will be the last year I can take her out for a week + before she goes to high school
