Me too! We'll be in CA April 16-21, and have 4 day park hoppers we'll use the 17-20. We're staying at the Fairfield Inn.

We're hoping the crowds aren't too bad, but considering our last visit to the DLR was between Christmas & New Years 3 years ago (with only 3 days in the parks) and we still had a great time, I'm thinking that 4 days during spring break won't be too bad. And hopefully, like someone said earlier, this will be a less busy spring break week.

I'm very excited, but we haven't told our kids yet (will let them know a couple of weeks before we go since 2 of the 3 don't do well with surprises & sudden changes in plans & routines) so I get my Disney fix here.

So, now that the dining ressies are getting made, what are everyone's plans?

We have Chef's Counter at Napa Rose (there is no word in any language to express my excitement), Carthay Circle, Blue Bayou, a character breakfast at the Plaza Inn, and possibly Jazz Kitchen (arrival night) planned.

you will LOVE Napa rose!
we are planning:
Steakhouse 55 for DD bday dinner - booked
Storytellers for Easter breakfast
Fantasmic dessert party
Goofy's Kitchen for dinner
Carnation Cafe for lunch

my DD isn't into waiting in lines for the characters much anymore, so I get sneaky and book character meals

we thought about Carthay Circle, but not much on the menu appealed to us...LOVE Blue Bayou too, but did that last trip and Minnies
breakfast is fun too!


for those of you travelling mid April...the parks should be a bit quieter since its a couple weeks after Easter!

We aren't doing any sit down meals. I tossed around the idea of a character breakfast, but my DD has never been and I don't want to waste all that money if she freaks out and we have to leave lol

I'll be staying at the Ramada Maingate for 2 nights, but only have one park day on 3/21. I'm hoping it will be before the Spring Break crowds really arrive in force

So far, here's what we're thinking for dining (our first day is 3/31, so I can start booking these tomorrow!):

3/31 (Easter dinner) - World of Color dinner - Wine Trattoria
4/1 Blue Bayou lunch
4/2 lunch Big Thunder Ranch
4/3 - Ralph Brennan Jazz Kitchen (I think exposing the kids to a jazz bar type environment would be pretty cool)
4/4 lunch - Carnation Cafe or Cafe Orleans
4/5 - lunch - Carthay Circle?

Any inputs on these from anyone? Is Carthay Circle any good? Would you prefer Carnation or Cafe Orleans? Thanks!
