Those are some great ADRs I'm sure they'll change a few times before your trip! Hahha

I am excited to say that my husband is wonderful and booked a meal at Le chefs!!!! I've been wanting to eat there and he surprised me with it!!!


I'm really looking forward to the 30th when I can eat at Le Cellier!!!

I think you should keep the T-Rex reservation. That place is a lot of fun. So is the Prime Time. If you've never been there, you should definitely try something different!

My ADR's have been constantly changing for the last 5 months! Only 3 more weeks to go though... There will probably be more changes though! I need to allow more time for snacking around the world!!

Great ADRs. Have you eaten at Jiko yet? Really, really good.

How about a Cape May Cafe breakfast? I love their breakfast. So good!

Great ADRs! you've got a lot of our favorites there. I love that you've currently got 3 LC ADRs! I kind of feel the same way you do about the Brown Derby. I've never been, so I'd really like to try it, but every time I think about trying to an ADR I remember that there really isn't anything on the menu that sounds good to me.

Great resort choices as well! I'm so excited you're doing a night at AoA. I can't wait to see what you think! I am definitely making it a point to get over there and check out the resort on our trip.

Your ADR's look great!!! Le Cellier...never could have predicted that one!!

We've done Kona breakfast before with absolutely no problem getting to MK rope drop. Actually, we've done Grand Floridian Cafe and got to AK rope drop no problem too! Both are pretty quiet early on in the mornings!

I know what you mean about Brown Derby not being the most appealing of menus. I have heard that people LOVE it there (Wingnut's family just went and have been raving about it ever since), so it does seem worth a shot!

Good ADR choices so far! I can understand you wanting to eat at Chefs again, since you were sick the last time. And 'Ohana sounds like it'd be perfect due to its location. I always try to plan a monorail resort dinner before a night at the MK.


1900 Park Fare wasn't bad as far as breakfasts go, but it does seem to take forever to be seated, so I am only throwing that idea out there if you're willing to miss rope drope.
Between 50's and Sci Fi, I'd probably pick 50's, but only because the food looks so good and I haven't read any really bad reviews. I'm eating there next week, and I'll let you know if I liked it better than Sci Fi.

TOTAL surprise on your resort choice, but a good one! I think you'll enjoy POR, and with FD, I think it's the best deal you can get! Love that you're getting to stay at AoA too, even for just one night. It looks so cute, I can't stand it!

Good looking ADRs (for now!)

Okay, I'm here and getting myself caught up!

For real though, anything related to friends is just hysterical. Especially if it's in reference to Chandler Bing.

That picture of Brandon next to the tiny bear heads is hilarious! How have I not seen that before.....

We are going to miss each other in the world by a matter of days.

Girl, I always get such a headache when I read through your room planning for WDW. Maybe I'm a little spoiled by DVC. I'm like "I've got a room!? Sold!" Although I am completely jealous that you're staying in a Little Mermaid room, even if it's only for one night. And the fact that you're staying in a royal guest room.

Wait, Cape May DOES NOT HAVE OREO BON BONS ANYMORE?! WHAT?! That's insane....

Don't be nervous about 50's, it's great! I love all of the food there, have never been disappointed.

Yayy! POR Royal rooms look gorgeous, but can I just say as someone with experience that the AOA resort is fantastic!? Hahaha you should go look around Cars when it's dark and he pole lights are on!
Loving the plans so far!

You always have such great ADRs figured out. I am sure it will all workout in the end. Sometimes I feel I stress so much about ADRs that I really should have none at all. Funny, right? But think about it for a second...never having to be anywhere at a certain time. It would be nice, but then I would just get jealous about reading about everyone elses food.

I don't think I told you, but we decided to do a split stay in December! So will be at PORFQ for 3 nights (this is a new one for us and I hope I like it) and WL for 4 nights ()

haha, we make ADRs in the complete opposite way - we always have tons and tons of breakfasts planned and nothing else. I think you should be able to do GFC or Kona and still get to rope drop; I was only a few minutes late when we did GFC in December.

I recently listened to a podcast on the history of the Hollywood Brown Derby so I would say go there! It just seems like a neat place. Also: signature cake. I've also heard some good reviews lately of Boatwrights. It was never open when we were around the resort, but it looked like a nice, quiet place to eat.

Omg yay!!! Those are both excellent resort choices! (Yeah, at least I assume they are, seeing as how I've never stayed at either of them. But I want to!!! So it counts. Ish.)

The Royal Rooms look gorgeous and Little Mermaid has basically been my lifelong obsession so I'm very excited for you (and also slightly jealous)!!

And yay for your ADRs! Wait, why would they get rid of the Oreo bon bons at Cape May? That may be the stupidest thing I've ever heard... especially because of how popular they are. They would basically be the main reason I'd ever want to go to Cape May for dinner... to be honest.

Aww, that was nice of your husband! I really liked Le Chefs but I couldn't enjoy it like I wanted to with that migraine so I'm glad we're trying it again!

Yum Le Cellier! I can't wait either!

I probably will keep it, I really want to eat at T-Rex! And Prime Time! As soon as I figure out my itinerary I'll try to get an ADR there I think!

Haha, I know, I'm so bad with changing ADR's! I just haven't had a chance yet because I'm so unsure of our itinerary! Yay 3 weeks! Ahhh that's the only bad thing about the Food and Wine festival, wanting time to eat but also wanting ADR's!

Hmmm Cape May is a good idea for breakfast, maybe before an Epcot day or something! Great idea!

Why? You love steak, right? I had the most amazing filet there. What is not to like. Be brave Jen. You can do it.

I think the characters here would be right up your alley. I can totally see some great pictures from this breakfast.
