Talking Our Magical Trip to Deez Nee~11ppl w/ FD! Will there be a Disney engagement?pg 17!

Hi! Welcome to my pre-trip report. I decided to start this because I have been planning this trip since LAST year at our 499 day mark Let me start by saying there will be 11 of us (8 adults, 1 Disney adult and 2 kiddos) heading to the world for 8 wonderful days with FREE DINING on the Deluxe Dining Plan!!! We will be celebrating my DD turning 13 And this is our first time during the Holiday season for our whole family(except for me and DH, we took a 4 day trip last dec)
Ok lets get this party started

The Cast of Characters:

Me-Erin30
Dh-Jim33
my DD#1 Kacey-soon to be 13
DD#2 Courtney-8
DD#3 Madysen-4
Dad-Bill
Mom-Donna
Brother-Adam28
Future SIL-Erin23(yes she has my same name-a little wierd at first )

Our Magical trip to Deez Nee to celebrate KC's 13th bday!

We first we scheduled to be at POR Nov 10th- the 17th BUT me being a worry wart and reading all the Blackout dates for past years FDing, I changed our Grand Gathering group of 4 rooms(not an easy task with all these ppl!)to Nov 25th. Then I did research and found out that there were so many things going on the weekend of the 10th I DONT do crowds very well! SO I guess a future trip during Christmas is our for me

I am a cronic changer of plans but not this time.... I just PAID OUR TRIP IN FULL last night! No more changing for us! And of course with dining for 11 ppl, I grabbed what I could at my 180day mark this past Tuesday and am calling it a day. I looked online last night for a ressie for 2(just playing around) at some of our places and have almost nothing available and its only been 2 days

Here is our schedule and ADR's so far:

Sunday-Arrival day MK then DTD
B:airport
L: Liberty Tree Tavern @1:35
D: T-Rex @ 7:45

Monday- DHS(Osbourne Lights)
B: Hollywood & Vine @8:05
L: Mama Melrose's F! package
D: Sci-Fi @7:55

Tuesday- Animal Kingdom/MVMCP
B: Tusker House @8am (pre RD )
L: RFC @12:30
D: Whispering Canyon Cafe @5:15

Wednesday- Epcot
B:'Ohana @8:25
L: Coral Reef CLP package
D: 1900 Park Fare

Thursday- Magic Kingdom
B:Crystal Palace @8am
L: Cingerella's Royal Table @2:05pm
D: 'Ohana's @ 7:05pm

Friday- Water Park/DHS
B: 1900 Park Fare
L:
D: 50's Prime Time Cafe

Saturday Epcot
B: Akershus Storybook breakfast @ 810am
L: Le Cellier @2pm
D: Cape May Cafe Clambake Dinner @ 7pm

Sunday- Magic Kingdom
B: Chef Mickeys @10:40
L: Be Our Guest @ 2 (CS)

Phew! Thats a lot of ADR's and things to do but we probably wont go back to WDW for awhile because we will have 2 Disney adults besides me and DH and DH says we should vacation somewhere else so I am trying to pack as much in as possible....besides we dont have to clean our plate

I'm here too!!!

Plan looks great. Only thing I would warn you about is the time it will take for all of those meals with a party of 11. We had a party of like 14 back in 2009. We typically only eat one sit down meal a day. Even then, it was such a hassle. We had five separate rooms at WL- and free dining (early December).

Every meal, they had to ring us up separately to do the free dining for each room. It took FOREVER when it came to paying the bill. Our meal at 50s prime time took over 2 hours. 45 of that was waiting for her to figure out the bills.

So just be aware and be prepared. Plus we found with our large party, we often waited longer for our ADR. Mind you, we had an ADR for every single meal, but being such a large party, it often meant waiting so they could get the tables put together. Often we had to sit apart (like at Coral Reef)- we were near each other, but not at the same table. Three different tables once. Anyhow- just prepare the crew on that so they aren't shocked. and it might help to ask for your bill in advance instead of waiting until the meal is over.

L: RFC@ 2:30
D: WCC@ 7:30

Monday- DHS(Osbourne Lights)
B: Chef Mickey's @ 815am (wasnt concerned about making RD here, this park doesnt take us all day anyway)Move ohanas breakfast to here
L: Sci-Fi @ 1:20pm
D: 50's Prime Time Cafe @ 745

Tuesday- Animal Kingdom/MVMCP
B: Tusker House @8am (pre RD )
L: Flametree BBQ
D: Grand Floridian Cafe @ 530 (may drop this if BOG opens)

Wednesday- Waterpark/Epcot
B:1900 Park Fare Supercalifragilistic Breakfast @ 8am
L: oop @ BB
D: Teppan Edo @630pm

Thursday- Magic Kingdom
B:Crystal Palace @8am (thought this was Pre RD BUT found out its EMH in the morning )cancel this
L: Cingerella's Royal Table @2:05pm
D: 'Ohana's @ 7:05pm

Friday- DHS/DTD
B: POR Change Chef Mickeys to this day
L: Mama Melrose's Fantasmic! package @ 2:50
D: T-Rex @8:30pm might switch this to 845
Saturday Epcot
B: Akershus Storybook breakfast @ 810am
L: Via Napoli @ 12:45pm
D: Cape May Cafe Clambake Dinner @ 7pm

Sunday- Magic Kingdom
B: 'Ohana Best Friends Breakfast @ 945 Change Crystal Palace to this day @ 930

It might work out better this way anyway because then I et MK on arrival and departure day AND Still get all my breakfasts-including our last day CP!

Perfect. For some reason, I thought it was later than that. Enjoy

Yea thanks for all the help. I modified it a bit. We will still have 3 ADR's on our DHS day and Epcot day but they are spaced out enough itll be fine..... I think?
