Now there's an idea!

AK plans look great. That's one full day!

Place to eat - love the Tusker House buffet, but I also love the veggie sandwich at Resturantsaurus.

Hi Pam I am here...better late then never.

I understand your thoughts about inviting your brother and his girlfriend. I will be rooting for the trip to be super great and them to love Jambo house and all the experiences you are providing for them. You are a very sweet sister to include them.

Our last trip to WDW in 2010 was less than steller. We invited a couple to join us and wow it was a very strange, stressful trip. I had won a vacation at WDW for four people and we invited them to join us for that part then at AKL CL for three days.

Your plans so far look great. I love how fluid your thought process and days are. That is the best way to tour with a group.

Looking at everyone planning trips for a year to two years in advance makes me think I had better start thinking about next years vacations.

Ann

Two counts for Flame Tree BBQ, excellent. R, M, and Mom love anything BBQ so I'll present that as an option. I don't eat any meat except fish and some seafood so hopefully will find something. They also love onion rings so it might be a winner.

A veggie sandwich could be right up my alley. You don't happen to remember if it has onions on it do you? I'm not a fan. But if they make them fresh I could request them be taken off... I wonder if they make anything fresh though.

Oh no, I'm going to divide all that up into two days. I think it'll work nicely and those days we'll have the evenings completely free since AK closes at 6 the week we're there.

Hi Ann So glad you found me. Not late at all, no worries!

I'm sorry your last trip wasn't a good one. Disney should never be strange or stressful. That just sounds terrible . You must get back and replace these memories with better ones.

I'm really hoping for a great trip. She is actually his wife, they've been married three years. However, they didn't tell anybody until they'd been married a year. A very bizarre situation. This is something I don't think they'd ever be able to do for themselves, so I really have high hopes for this trip. I'm hoping everything goes very smoothly with no drama. Thank you for your kind words

Yes, start your planning now! It makes me a much happier person knowing there's a lot to look forward to.

Dinosaur is the one that scares the wits out of me but I keep going back for more. I think it's a sickness I scream and scream even though I know what's coming. I just love it.

Can't wait to read all about it, sounds like a great couple of days.

I was going to say that was a pretty ambitious day too! Better spread out over two days. I checked the flame tree menu at allears and they have a fruit salad with yogurt and French fries you can eat there.

Yes, I think it's much better spread out over two days. I know they're both going to love AK, and don't want them to feel rushed. Also, since they only have one day passes we'll have those evenings free to just relax or go to DTD.

Ugh i'm so late. I'm not even fashionably late, just embarrassingly late

Wow I had no idea that AKV only had 5 CL studios. And you got two of them for your dates which is fantastic!

Honestly, your plans looks so laid back and relaxed, something i'm not used to! But i'm sure your DB and SIL will appreciate it.

Will you be taking pictures/doing reviews of some of the CS restaurants you'll be eating at? The last time i've been to a CS restaurant was in 2008 and we'll be partaking for at least 3 or 4 days of CS on this next trip, so need to start keeping an eye out for good places to eat. So far Earl of Sandwich and/or Wolfgang Puck Express are on the list. But need park CS restaurants recommendations.

Welcome! Glad you came over of course you're not late, I still need to talk about Epcot and MK plans, and food plans of course!

Absolutely, pictures of everything. I was so upset at myself for missing a few meals on the last trip. We'll see how crazy R & M think I am when I take pictures of their food my dad and stepmom thought it was just bizarre. Both those places are on the list, I've heard great things about them.

I was so happy about getting both rooms. I learned how many there were when I was booking for the three nights after the cruise since I wanted CL for that trip as well, and the CM told me how few there are. I called at 11 months but in the afternoon and they were gone. I had it waitlisted as long as I could but it never came through.

I really want to try the Yorkshire County Fish Shop in Britain. I don't know how many trips it's been that we've been trying to go there, but the Fish & chips look really good.

Also we like Columbia Harbor House in MK, they also have Fish & chips and a pretty good clam chowder. The place in Tomorrowland where Sunny Eclipse plays has good burgers and a nice toppings bar.

Flame Tree BBQ in AK is a great CS, and though it's not our fave, we usually end up eat at the Backlot Express in DHS.

I should have put all that on your PTR!

I've tried the fish and chips as a snack () and it's excellent! I've also been to Flame Tree and got their Pulled Pork sandwich which was great too! I've had nothing at MK, but have heard Pecos Bill, CHH, and Cosmic Ray's is good. We've tried ABC Commis. at DHS and were not impressed. In fact, I don't think i've heard of any recommendations for CS at DHS

Now i'm going to be asking this question on my TR! Sorry for the slight detour Pam.
