Some advice...anyone eat at Teppan Edo? I heard its a good place to take kids since they entertain while you watch them cook your food. Also, would it too much to do BOG for dinner then do the dessert party afterwards? Or should I split it up? We are there for 11 days so we have time.
We are planning on Ohana dinner and then the dessert party, but we were going to go for the earliest Ohana dinner so we're not doing them right on top of each other, but with a little break in between.

Ok last one

Anyone been to trex in downtown Disney? I'm worried my LOs might be scared but they love dinosaurs. So also considering Raglan road instead bc DH and I ate there few years ago and it was great! Just thought they might like trex better. Thanks in advance for your help!! And sorry for so many posts

We did BOG @ 4:30 then the dessert party @ 8 and were too full still from dinner Bob and I shared 4 chocolate strawberries only, but the seats and view were worth the $$$ even though we couldn't sample the desserts

You can only see the tops of the floats from the party.

We have done T-Rex, we were visiting family but didn't go to the parks my son was 2 1/2 and he loved it try to avoid the ice cave its cold and dark and the light show gives you a headache. try and sit to the left of the ice cave there are several smaller dinosaurs that move around and make noise I think about every half hour. The food is great I loved the mushroom pasta dish

Thanks! I was thinking 7ish, but your times sound good, too.

Next steps are to plan what we are doing at each park to maximize our ride/attractions!
So glad you got everything you wanted! I think I might try the idea I've been hearing and make the reservation for six people instead of five. Some peeps from the October thread said they found available times when they used even numbers than odd. Whatever. As long as I can eat where I want when I want! Besides, I have a CM friend that might tag along with us.

Oh yeah, definitely try for an even number. For whatever reason the odd numbers are often unavailable.

Geez, I feel like im gearing up for the Super Bowl or something I am so excited to make our ADR's and I still have another couple weeks to wait....

I was surprised that 7 worked for booking. Maybe it has to do with tables being usually for 4 so 5 doesn't work. Every reservation I did had a big yellow warning that "everyone in my party may not be able to sit at the same table". I'm just happy that I was able to get things done and finished and without too much hassle. I think it helped that I'm in Canada and we still have the old website. I also didn't get onto the website until 8am.

So just checking since I'm noticing people have more than one reservation, once it's 180 days you can make all your AdR for whole trip? Or is it done each passing day?

For the whole trip, I think for up to 10 days
