Well, not knowing what you like, but we have a few favorites.
MK--Be Our Guest....might be hard to get an ADR now, but doesn't hurt to try. We also like the Plaza.

DHS--we like Sci Fi and Brown Derby (2 cred). We like Mama Melrose's for lunch but not so much for dinner, 50's Primetime.

Epcot--the choices are endless.....Garden Grill, Marrakesh, Chef's du France, Via Napoli, Tutto Italia (2 cred?), Coral Reef...though it is up and down. We used to like Le Cellier, but the last few times have been less than wonderful.

AK--Yak & Yeti

Away from the parks we like Narcoossees at Grand Floridian (2 cred), Turf Club (at SSR, a hidden gem), Captain's Grille at Yacht Club, Kona Cafe at Polynesian, Grand Floridian Cafe at Grand Floridian, the Wave at Contemporary, 'Ohana at Poly, Boma at Animal Kingdom Lodge
I don't know which of the Downtown Disney restaurants take the dining plan...
Thanks for sharing your thoughts on dining, Stephanie. I did try to reserve Be Our Guest--but no luck. Guess we'll go there for lunch one day. We've been wanting to try Le Cellier for a while and were able to get a dinner reservation. I was able to reserve through the Candlelight Processional but does that really start taking place this early? We'll be there until Oct. 5--will you arrive by then?

I've got 50s diner booked for Monday lunch and Sci Fi for Wednesday lunch (I think). Trying to get a Crystal Palace early breakfast but only Friday after 9.50am showing up Ill keep trying though, people will cancel. If not I do a walk up and see how we go ADRs aren't that important to me.

Well done

I've made our NYC reservations. Not Times Square location like I'd hoped but good enough.

We don't get there until the 12th of October and only there until the 16th.

Lunch at BOG is good as well, try to get there around 10:45. The line looks HORRIBLY long, but actually moves rather quickly. We were halfway back on the bridge and ordering lunch 20 minutes later. It was a nice day and we people-watched. Normally I don't stand in a 20 minute line for lunch.

I worry more when we have the little ones with us because of course they want the characters and such. If it's just Dave and I, we make a few that we really want then we play it by ear.

But no stay at Disney before this cruise since we will have been in October and going again in January with the whole Fam Damily.

Morning all:


Frank: have a good time at the parks...

Stephanie: for you and your booking date....I cant believe that we are actually getting this close.... I still have to pay the cruise off, which I will do in July sometime.

Sue and I decided to do the salsa & salsa in Costa Maya...altho I hope we get a few margaritas in before the salsa dance class I'm thinking of skipping the salsa dance and getting to the beach...the pictures of the beach look amazing....

well going to start getting hot and humid around here in the next couple of days....but we are supposed to get some rain also...need that rain for my garden.

have a good one
later

Yep, I use my Disney credit card to pay it off, then I get the points and apply them to my OBC..then I just pay off the credit card.

Once I pay for the cruise, then it really becomes really real...

well crazy day at work, it was slow so she let 3 girls leave. I stayed and worked the front desk...made the afternoon go really fast....kept me busy.

Wally is working late tonite wont be home for another hour or so...no sure what I want to do for dinner..

well have a good one.

later

When we paid our cruise (in full) our dollar was higher than yours. Now we are around .92cents and I'm miserable Thank goodness most of the expensive parts of our trip are paid for already (except car rental, I'm dreading that cost).

well I don't have that much...I have'nt been using any credit cards for awhile and recently started using the Disney to get points (nothing like waiting till the last minute) so by the time we cruise I should only have like 60 points....but at least that is an extra 60 toward excursions
