    What type of ADR schedule would you set up with some of the following restaurants (your suggestions from the list) and any additional places you would recommend? I'm just wondering where to fit some of these in and what the best plan of attack may be for example, California Grill for dinner on Tuesday night, etc.). We will be at Disney for a week in the beginning of December :banana:

    Animal Kingdom
    Tusker House (Animal Kingdom) - Sunrise Safari?
    Pizzafari (lunch) (AK) - has Chicken Caesar salad for Judd!
    Flame Tree BBQ? (AK)

    Magic Kingdom
    Peco's Bills (Magic Kingdom)
    Tony's (MK) - Good morning Grand Gathering

    Resorts
    California Grill? (CR)
    Kona Cafe (Polynesian)
    Citricos? (GF)
    Jiko's? (AKL)
    Cape May (Breakfast) (Beach Club)
    Whispering Canyon Cafe
    Shula's Steak House (Dolphin)
    Narcoose's? - GF
    Spoodles (Boardwalk)



    Epcot
    Garden Grill (Epcot - character) - request lower level seating
    Le Cellier (of course!)
    The Land pavilion food court (Epcot) - lunch


    MGM Studios
    Mama Melrose (MGM)
    Playhouse Disney Character Breakfast
    ABC Commissary (MGM)


    Downtown Disney Area
    Rainforest/Planet Hollywood
    Wolfgang Puck

    Opinions and suggestions are welcome! :goodvibes

    First I think you need an itinerary. Which parks will you be going to on which days? It won't do you any good if I say "Have lunch at Pecos Bill's on Tuesday" when you'll be at AK on Tuesday. KWIM? ;)

    Figure out which parks you want to go to and how much time you'll spend there, then work the restaurants in wherever they fit.

    Here is how I plan mine out: (We need to know who is in your party, ages, etc that would help)

    I pick what day I want to go where and then pick the place to eat.

    So if you arrive Sat and start at MK with dinner Whispering Canyon

    Sunday do Epcot and land food court for lunch with a Garden grill later at night.

    Monday do AK with Flame tree BBq for CS and then Wolfgang puck at DTD at night (since AK closes earlier)

    Tue do MGM with the Mama Melrose Fantasmatic dinner. (Kill 2 birds with one stone that way)

    Wed do MK again with California grill or Kona cafe

    Thur do Epcot with Le celler for dinnter

    Fri do MK again with Pecos bill for Cs lunch and Tonys for Dinner.

    Just be careful you don't plan to many Buffet Styles dinner, they tend to have the same food.

    Since I don't know your park plans, it's hard to fit in your meals. Instead, I ranked your restaurants by how much I like them:


    Counter Service Restaurants:
    The Land pavilion food court (Epcot) - lunch
    Flame Tree BBQ? (AK)
    Peco's Bills (Magic Kingdom)
    Pizzafari (lunch) (AK) - has Chicken Caesar salad for Judd!
    ABC Commissary (MGM)

    Table Service
    California Grill? (CR)
    Shula's Steak House (Dolphin) -- ** Note not on the DDP!
    Citricos? (GF)
    Narcoose's? - GF
    Jiko's? (AKL)
    Wolfgang Puck
    Whispering Canyon Cafe
    Le Cellier (of course!)
    Kona Cafe (Polynesian)
    Garden Grill (Epcot - character) - request lower level seating

    Places I have not eaten at:
    Cape May (Breakfast) (Beach Club) -- ** I have had dinner only and it is very good!
    Spoodles (Boardwalk)
    Mama Melrose (MGM)
    Playhouse Disney Character Breakfast
    Rainforest/Planet Hollywood

    Other
    Tony's (MK) - Good morning Grand Gathering
    Tusker House (Animal Kingdom) - Sunrise Safari?

    I have heard very good things about the Sunrise Safari. I would book that first as it's only a couple days a week and then plan the rest of your trip around it. It looks like you're a Grand Gathering. I would recommend the IllumiNations Dinner at Epcot. It had great food and we had a nice view of the fireworks.
