Just booked our ADRs. It took ages as I kept getting error messages but in the end all good.

Still haven't booked our flights to LA. DH says wait a little longer but I'm very tempted to get it all finished.

Ta Kylie, will add! :D

Oh, I need to hurry up, sit down and book ADRs! And just get my head around our plans in general. I got an email from my DUTA saying "would you like me to book some ADRs" - I sent back one letting her know I'm a micro-managing PITA who makes constant changes so thanks but no thanks, I'd drive her nuts

Haven't booked LAX-MCO or NYC-LAX either, am stalking daily. Prices atm are a LOT more than 2011 so I am hoping for some sales! I picked up MCO-LGA a couple of days at $114/pp including bags and was happy enough with that.

Welcome

We were at DLR in December '11 and it was all so pretty dressed up for Christmas Make sure you watch the fireworks and stand close to the snow machine poles. The 'snow' smells so yummy.

Finally got our last ADR booked today. The first half of our stay is at the Yacht Club so we have focused on Epcot Area Restaurants and the second half is at the Wilderness Lodge so MK area restaurants are the focus.

Day 1 - Fulton's Crab House (D)
Day 2 - San Angel Inn (L) and Teppan Edo (D)
Day 3 - Tusker House (B), Flame Tree BBQ (No ADR but in our plans) and Chefs De France (D)
Day 4 - 50's Prime Time (L) and Brown Derby (D)
Day 5 - Bubba Gump (Going to Universal for the day) and Flying Fish (D)
Day 6 - Biergarten (L) and Le Cellier (D)
Day 7 - Crystal Palace (B) and Citricos (D)
Day 8 - Artist Point (D)
Day 9 - Rainforest Cafe (L) and Jiko (D)
Day 10 - Planet Hollywood (Another day at Universal) and Grand Floridian Private Dining
Day 11 - 1900 Park Fare (B) and Hoop Dee Doo
Day 12 -Be our Guest (D)

We are celebrating our anniversary at WDW so I have arranged a special dinner for DW and 2 DD with the Grand Floridian Dining. It is a 5 course meal with personalised butler service on the 3rd floor Balcony of the Grand Floridian so you can watch the fire works at the MK.
We have also booked tickets to MVMCP on day 7.

We also have a few nights at DL staying at GC so we have planned the following restaurants:

Day 1 - Tortilla Jo's (D)
Day 2 - Blue Bayou (L) and Steakhouse 55 (D)
Day 3 - ESPN (L) and WOC special at Wine Country Trattoria
Day 4 - Storytellers (B) and Napa Rose (D)

Almost all done. I hope I haven't forgotten anything.

How are everyone's plans coming along?

I have nearly everything booked/done...

All internal flights - booked and paid for
All accommodation booked, mostly paid for
Some tourist tours booked & paid, still deciding on some
All ADR's booked
MVMCP booked & paid / Candlelight Processional Pkg booked

Just need to:
Book bus ticket from New York to Boston (this isn't available for another couple of weeks)
Finish paying off WDW (was waiting to see if Free Dining came out before finalising payment)

So...this is what I have

MEL - LAX - QANTAS (on FF points - Economy)
LAX - LAS - American Airlines (best flight time, and surprisingly much cheaper than SouthWest)
LAS - JFK - American Airlines (same reason as above)
Bus to Boston - (Megabus)
BOS - MCO - Delta (non-stop service and better price and SouthWest)
MCO-LAX - American (same again)
LAX - MELB - QANTAS (on FF points - Business)

I was really surprised that SouthWest had such terrible flight times (nearly all with connections) and the prices were more expensive than American & Delta - even by the time I pay for baggage. My last 3 trips I have had really great experiences with SouthWest - but just not this time!!

As for my ADR's:

Rose & Crown - Dinner
Chef's de France - Candlelight Processional Dinner Pkg
Brown Derby - Fantasmic Lunch Pkg
Yachtman's Steakhouse - Dinner
Kouzzina - Dinner
Jiko - Dinner
Crystal Palace - Breakfast

If free dining doesn't come up, I may cancel a couple of these, but thought it best to get them...just in case....

Will November EVER arrive?!?!?

Can't remember specifics but I've booked a lunch at 50s diner and the Candlelight Processional lunch at Via Napoli (no thanks to the dreadful mydisneyexperiencemyleftfoot...) I've booked two nights at the Camlin in Seattle (through our timeshare but may change it to one night, haven't decided yet), organised car hire for Seattle to Anaheim, registered me, DD and DS in the Neverland 5K at DLR and booked a night at a hotel near MCO for the night before we fly to NYC. I've still got so much more to do

We are driving from NYC to New Hampshire, the boys (and us) are hoping for a white Christmas, so they can try snowboarding.


We are doing the Very Mickey Christmas party at WDW and have booked for dinner at The Garden Grill for the Candlelight Processional.
Just not looking forward to the long flight over, as we are Aussies who live in Singapore so a bit further to travel.

Will you split your stay & take advantage of free dining from the 12th?

MousefanDU, you could do this too if you were prepared to not have a park day on the 8th (ie first day in parks = 9th). You'd only have FD from the 12th but that would still be five day's worth!

Will have a look later at who else might benefit, but those who haven't seen this thread yet should take a look. http://disboards.com/showthread.php?t=3141417
