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.
Thanks! Haha yeah I kind of hoard Le Cellier ADR's, don't tell anyone! I'm sure I will try Brown Derby someday, but it just doesn't seem like the menu is that great! It looks really pretty though!

Thanks! I'm so excited about AoA too, I hope you get to go over there and check it out! It looks like so much fun!

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!
Haha I know right? Me eating at Le Cellier? Never happens!

I think we could do Kona before MK rope drop, but I've heard GFC is really slow, that's why that one makes me nervous! I'll probably do Kona and just keep hoping Crystal Palace opens up!

I've heard that people love the Brown Derby too, so I keep wondering if there is something wrong with me for not wanting to go? I'm sure I could find something I like...there are just so many other signatures I'd want to try before that place!

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.
Thanks! I'm so excited to eat at Le Chefs again, hopefully migraine free this time!

I don't know if Brandon would go for breakfast at 1900 PF...it seems a bit girly for him! I'll see what he says but if it's slow, I might just wait for another trip, I really need to make rope drop for MK!

I really want to go to 50's but I'm nervous about the antics...I might just need a drink first and then maybe I'll be relaxed!

Good looking ADRs (for now!)
Thanks! I do like POR, so I'm excited for the royal rooms! They look so pretty! And I can't wait for our first night at AOA, I can't wait to check everything out!

Thanks, I'm sure there will be a few changes!

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.
Yay glad you're here!

Haha I love Chandler so much, pretty much everything he says is funny!

I know, I can't believe we're going to miss each other! Too bad I can't just stay though Thanksgiving!

I know, I am a little insane with the resort choices and all the changes, but I really doubt anything else concerning the resorts will change for this trip! I can't wait to stay in a royal room!

That's what I've heard, no more oreo bonbons at Cape May...it's just not right!

I'm not nervous about the food at 50's, I'm nervous about the antics! I just want to eat and go, you know? We'll see...I'd like to make an exception and just go with it, but I'm so freakin shy when it comes to these kinds of things, I might just sit there and cry!

Loving the plans so far!
Yay I'm so glad you like AoA! I am absolutely going to check out Cars at night, I keep hearing it's amazing! I really want to see the Lion King section too!

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 ()
Thanks! Haha I feel the same way about ADR's...I love them but I'd love to just do what I want, when I want! Someday I will do an ADR-less trip!

Oooh POFQ sounds fantastic, I've always wanted to stay there! I'm sure you will love it, the rooms look beautiful!

Originally Posted by Merida View Post

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.
I love breakfast ADR's in Disney but I just didn't make many for some reason! I will probably do Kona before MK, although I really want to try GFC too...ugh, decisions!

HBD does seem really cool, but I'm just not impressed by the menu! I've heard Boatwrights is really good, I'd like to go there since we're staying there!

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.
Thanks! Haha, it definitely counts if you want to stay there! I know I'll love POR since we've stayed there, and I can't wait to try AoA! It looks so cute!

I don't know, I could swear I read no more oreo bonbons but now you guys have me second guessing! They are SO good, maybe it's just a horrible rumor!

Yay! 46 days seems really close!

I have to say, I'm a huge fan of the GFC for breakfast. It's just so lovely in there with the morning sunlight and the massive walls of windows. Also, I don't eat bananas so the GFC fancy French toast is more my style. I don't think you could go wrong with either!

Why are you nervous about 50sPTC? Have you never been there? It's really good! And the peanut butter & jelly milkshake is to die for! You should give it a try.
