"Maybe We Should Go To Disney World Next Week" An Impromptu May DR *COMPLETE*

Hello everyone! Jerseytinkerbell aka Jeri coming to you once again with another Disney Dining Report. So, this is how it happened. We were just getting ready for work the other day when Rob suddenly said, "Maybe we should go to Disney World next week." He barely got the words out before I shouted "YES!!!" We worked out the days off at work with ease and just like that, a Disney vacation was born on a week's notice.

We will be arriving in sunny Florida on May 11 and leaving May 18. We will be staying at Caribbean Beach for the entire stay. We have our APs and our TiW card and we are ready for some awesome Disney food.

Joining me this trip, as always, is my wonderful hubby Rob. Here we are at the Top of the World Lounge back in October.


I am still tweaking our DRs, but here is the lineup so far:

Tusker House- breakfast (a first for us)
Trails End- breakfast
Via Napoli- lunch (another first)
Beaches & Cream- lunch
La Hacienda- dinner (yet another first)
Captain's Grille- dinner

We also plan on lots of meals at DTD and we plan on trying out the booths at Flower & Garden Festival. We'll see how it all plays out soon enough.

Many more to be added. I am still trying to wrap my head around making plans. I will be reporting back to you all very soon and in the mean time you can follow my Disney adventures on Instagram @jeriberri23

See you all back here really soon with lots of great food pictures!

What a dream a last minute trip. Once did it three and a half weeks in advance in 2009 and it was amazing. Have a fantastic time.

He is a good man! I'm so glad he suggested it because I need a break from work. This will help break up the time until our September trip quite nicely. I know I will clog up your Instagram feed with tons of Disney pics! That sounds like an awesome drink list! I promise to get started on that list immediately. Every time I have one I'll say, "But I have to. For Megan."

Thanks so much! Not looking forward to the trip being over, but it will definitely be great to get the report started and relive the magic.

Hi there! I love the planning too, but at least I still have a September trip to obsessively plan for. Between this DR and planning for September it should keep me occupied until the next trip rolls around.

Very nice! Glad you had a great trip. I am really looking forward to Via Napoli. It's hard to believe that we still have so many restaurants we haven't tried yet. We're considering booking a first time trip to 50's Prime Time too but we're really on the fence. Still heavily debating out HS lunch plans. We'll see how it all pans out soon enough!
