I think we're only going to make 2 ADR's - the character breakfast at 1900 Park Fare and the Hoop Dee Doo Revue.

Our MUST ADRs are:
Biergarten - family favorite and must do every trip
Tepan Edo - This is for DD - who is in love with everything Japanese these days
Boma - another family favorite. I thought it was just OK, but DD and DH thought that this place was the cats meow.

Now that DS will be 10, its our first trip without character meals. I just can't see paying $25 + for breakfast ( even though he is a big eater). We aren't trying for anything hard like BOG, Le Cellier, CG, 'Ohana etc.

But our must do's are:
Sci Fi lunch during SWW
Kona Cafe & Tokyo Dining for sushi
Plaza & LTT lunch
And our EPCOT favs- Rose n Crown & Via Napoli

We also plan on more DTD since we have the boat from POFQ so T-Rex, Portobello, Raglan Road & Paradiso 37

This will be DD11 and my first trip ever - DH went at 3 and again at 12 - so we want to fit in one character meal and breakfast is my favorite meal of the day.

Hi all

We're looking at June too -- probably the 20th-27th. Soooo excited!! I haven't been to WDW for more than 3 nights since 2006. Can't wait to spend a full week there. It's me, DH, and DS14. We're going with my DH's nephew, wife, and their 2 girls, 6 and 9. Our 16 y.o niece may come along too. I uses to get pin codes all the time, of course I could never use them. Here's hoping for some kind of discount for June.

I've been looking at restaurants and we always try new ones when we go. On our list for MUST DO ADRs are:
Tusker House (Donald's Breakfastasaurus)
Cape May Clambake
Via Napoli
Sci Fi for lunch
Whispering Canyon
1900 Park Faire (looking at the character dinner)
All of these are new to us. We would avoid the character meals but the girls really want to see the characters, so we'll go. Of course, we'll stop at Earl of Sandwich for my fave, the caprese .

Joining in on the discount watch. We are going down in June, just not sure the exact dates yet as we are waiting for the soccer camp dates to be released. My DS is a huge soccer player/fan so we decided to plan a trip so he could attend the camp they do with the English Premier League players. It has always been in June, so we are assuming it will be in June this year also. Hoping for a great discount!

How fun!!!!!!!!! We are a big soccer family too!! Lucky for us that the season ends and try outs for next year always happen the weekend before we leave. We were actually on the DME bus to the YC this past June when the email came through securing his position on this year's team! First thing we did was head to the UK Pavilion in EPCOT to buy an Arsenal jersey!

How many days is everyone planning for their trip? Last year we had the fd code for June and stayed 7 nights/6 days. I wish we had stayed longer b/c it was such a good deal for us ( our kids are Disney adults). I am hoping to go one or two days more, but it's hard to plan when you don't know what deals you will get. I'm hoping to get my air tickets as soon as SW releases the dates, which I think will be in Dec. ( just guessing based on last year).

We're going to do a 7 night, 8 day trip. Still not sure when though. A lot depends on flights from SW and if/when Disney releases any discounts.

My logic & design class (and DS's football season) has me so behind that I haven't thought of ADR's yet.
I know we will for sure get..
Biergarten (it's a must do every trip)
Chef Mickey's (a breakfast must do every trip)
Le Cellier (dont care if it's lunch or dinner as long as I can get that yummy mushroom filet)

For sure won't do
Restaurant Marrakesh (it was cool to try it once, but there are other places in Epcot I want to try)
Fulton's Crab House (food was great, just had an issue with the seating and another issue when we checked in that made my DH say he wouldn't come back)
Yak & Yeti (food and CM were great, but unless we know for sure we don't have to sit on the 2nd floor, over looking the 1st. We sat right by the railing and it freaked our DS's out so much they wouldn't really eat & our oldest DS literally got sick to his stomach)

We are planning a 7 night stay ar POR from the 2nd to the 9th. Right now we're only planning a few ADR's because we're paying out of pocket (unless they give us free dining ). Our first time ADR's will be:

Akershus for breakfast
Le Chefs De France
Hoop De Doo

We've asked our two boys (11 and 14) where they'd like to eat and it's between Teppan Edo and Coral Reef. We've done both so we'll see which one wins out.

We are going for 15 days (our longest trip ever!!) which is why we are looking at moderates and not deluxes.

I wish we could go earlier to do 2 SWW (like we did in 2010) but soccer try outs prevent that.

Letthewookiewin- we had a fabulous lunch at Fultons in 2011, but a disappointing dinner there in 2012. It's off our list now too. And now that we are at POFQ (or POR) we plan on utilizing the DTD boat frequently to try more restaurants there!

We are thinking of staying at either POR or POFQ too. It's been kind of a tough decision. I was thinking that one of the Nemo suites would be nice at AOA but I'm sure that discounts will not apply next year to that hotel. We'd really like to have the 1 bedroom so DH and I can be able to hang out together but then again, we're going to be at the parks all day too. We'd also like to utilize the DTD boat if we want/need too. Ugh, decisions decisions. If it were in our budget I think we'd stay at the Poly or the WL but it's not. I can't justify spending that much money on a hotel we won't be in that much.
