We're hoping for:

-Easter Dinner at Narcoossee's, our family's favorite (DH and I had a lovely Christmas dinner there last year)
-Citricos (Mom's request)
-Brown Derby (Dad's request)
-1900 Park Fare for breakfast (so my brother can see Mary Poppins)
-Crystal Palace for breakfast (for me, I have to see Eeyore)
-Hoop Dee Doo Review (for DH)

Happy planning everyone!

It's just so much to think about!!! How do I know where's good and what times are best for what places? I dont mind QS for lunch but i dont want it for every evening meal too. There's a couple of places in DTD and CW I like the look of- can I get ADRs for them too?

Most table service restaurants will be booked. Except maybe at off times ~ lunch at 3, dinner at 4 or 9, etc

Just look at the TS restaurants at each park and pick what appeals to you

If you go on the Disney website, you can click on the "Where to Eat" and start from there...it will sort out restaurants by park, etc...

You could also check out the restaurants board here on the Dis for information.

Just made the booking today!!! April 21st to May 4th.

We went right B4 my DD's 3rd b-day thinking it was a one time thing.... here we are 5 months later and booked for a repeat. (My mom is labeling everything "2nd Annual Disney Trip"- so I think we're all in agreement to try to do it again as often as humanly possible!!!) Three generations-Mom(76), Me(41), and DD(4). Just the girls!!

We're doing a LM room at AOA- (that's how we're doing two weeks this time....and still less than the FW cabins we did last year!!)
CAN'T WAIT!!!

I'm hoping that by starting early I can get all the changing-my-mind stuff out of the way before I actually make them. Since I usually spend the next month after they are already made changing and tweaking everything.
Me too! I've been looking at the travel agent calendar daily to see if April is released yet (it seems to come out before the calendar is posted on the Disney website). It is still showing April 2012. Oct. 17 is my day to book ADRs and I think I've got everything pretty well figured out using my Go To Morning EMH / Avoid Evening EMH park hopper plan. So all I need is to know for certain the EMH hours. Just about the time I think, "Aha! This park always has morning EMH on this day," I find a new calendar where that isn't true. They just like to keep us on our toes!

We don't do the DDP and there may be days I will make two ADRs with the intention of not eating a full meal but rather having appetizer and/or soups and/or salads, and dessert if it is worth the Weight Watcher points. The reason we don't like the DDP is that we didn't really care that much for the desserts any way in the past the two times we did use the plan.

You are going to have fun making those 22 ADRs! And tweaking and tweaking and tweaking . . .

I agree. You should make some ADRs. allears.net has all the restaurants and their menus (fairly current but may change by next April) and reviews. Warning though -- You could end up spending HOURS looking at the menus and reviews, not that I know anyone who as ever done this.

Well, I do think you will find a few people on the DIS who will be willing to help you plan.

Ok, I think I'm all updated. Check the first post please and make sure everything is ok.

Had a little "distraction" come my way -- Went to participate in a baby's birth over night. This was the ninth time I've seen a baby born and it never gets old. This baby is a Disney souvenir from the family's 2011 Christmas trip.
