Two TS in One Day?

Trying to finalize plans for our week the end of August. We don't do park hopper, so just one park a day. We're taking one day out to go to Legoland for the whole day. We have the free DP, so want to be sure to use all our TS credits, but running into a jam. We just booked the Tomorrowland Dessert Party, so don't want a big meal that night and was hoping to do BOG for lunch.

So here's what we have:

Arrive mid-day Sunday - Half day at MK, dinner at either Tony's or Trail's End. Trying to switch to Ohana, but no luck yet. So it will be one of those three!

Monday - AK, dinner at Boma

Tues - Legoland, won't be on property for any meals

Wed - EPCOT, dinner at Teppan Edo. Kids want to go to Beaches & Cream for the Kitchen Sink sundae, so that will probably be our lunch that day!

Thurs - HS, Fantasmic package at Mama Melrose (lunch), probably QS dinner

Fri - MK, BOG QS for lunch, snacks for supper, Dessert Party at 8:00

Sat - Departure day, Wolfgang Puck's for lunch before we go

So where do I fit in one more TS meal? We loving taking a break and having a relaxing meal, but don't want to spend all day sitting and eating, either! I'm thinking maybe adding a breakfast on the AK day and then not having to even worry about lunch.

Any suggestions?????

One of my family's favorite things to do is have an 8am ADR before the parks open. We have done all in each park at one time or another. Tusker House in AK is a good one to do because when you are done, you are right by the safari just as the park is opening.
We also like Crystal Palace to walk up an almost empty Main St. before opening.

Can you eat dinner at a resort the night of Legoland? If not, my suggestion is try for a pre park opening Tusker House on your AK day.

I would go with Tusker House, too. It's really good and we love to do a pre-RD ADR there.

Thanks for the suggestions! I'm thinking Tusker House for breakfast, too, and then we won't need to break for lunch really.

Only thing is the day we're going is a morning EMH for AK, so the park is opening at 8:00. I can get 8:10 at Tusker House. I'm wondering if that will totally throw our schedule off for the day?

I've told my Lego fanatic we can stay until Legoland closes the day we go there. So that will be 6:00 and then the ride back to Disney, drop off the rental car. I think we'll be eating on the run and don't want to be tied to an ADR that night.

Do the last breakfast ADR at Tusker House. I've done that on EMH day and it works really well for us. We love that breakfast.

I agree about Legoland day, that's pretty much what we do on Universal day. We don't want to stress about getting out and back in time for an ADR.
We never do early ADR on EMH day, by the time the meal is over, the benefits of EMH are gone. In this instance, I would try for one of the last breakfast ADRs. You can get park time in before it gets too busy and then have a nice meal in the ac when it starts to get hot.

No way to squeeze trex in on the legoland evening?
What about an Ohana's breakfast on the MK day?

We loved the breakfast at Tusker House. And when we were finished we used our fast passes to walk right on the safari. It was one of the best meals we had.

Got a PIN code that was good from 8/25 on. And just happens our first day was 8/25!

We had planned on going that last week, just like we always have, assuming they'd have the same dates they have for quite a few years. We were sooooo disappointed when the public offer came out and it didn't start until 9/2. But we were going anyway, just a little scaled back. Then I started hearing about people getting PINs e-mailed. I was stalking my e-mail like crazy!!!! Nothing ever showed up. But I called and just had them check and there it was! So we're staying at POFG and getting free dining!

If you're going to have an extra TS credit, you could opt for a 2TS meal.

I'd cancel Tony's and eat QS for dinner at MK, then use the extra credit for a signature restaurant.

I agree with the previous posters that suggest Tusker House for breakfast. It is a must do and I think 8:10 even during EMH would be great!

Are you interested in the shows? I think swapping out a dinner for one of them would be a great idea. Maybe one is available on your first night. Fun way to start out the vacation. By the way, I got the same pin.

Thanks for all the suggestions!!!! I'd love to use the 2 to go to CRT, but my DS11 and DS13 have NOOOO interest in that!

But I do love the suggestion of doing a later breakfast at Tusker, so I made a 10:30 reservation for that on our AK day. We'll hit EMH in the morning, and then take a break for breakfast and be able to finish out the day there before heading to Boma for dinner. Want to catch the kitchen tour there at 4:00 and then we have an early ADR.

Thank you for all the feedback.
