Might as well tell it like it is! This whole planning my dream trip 180 days in advance thing is killing me. Hubby and I can barely decide where to eat dinner tonight, let alone this weekend or 6 months in advance. And of course he being a guy has told me to "figure it out and I'll go where you tell me to". Sure he will, but heaven help me if I get it wrong and he hates the food... Having said that, we've both agreed to do a couple of meals that would not be our first choice in order to make the other one happy as long as there is at least one thing on the menu we like. I'm a relatively adventurous eater, I can't think of anything Disney would be serving that I'd be afraid to eat - Bizarre Foods its not. Hubby does not like shellfish, prefers his fish to be fried unless its something like baked cod or haddock, hates salmon, hates tofu, and doesn't eat uncured pork - but will eat bacon, sausage and ham. I of course love salmon, love shellfish, like tofu and love all pork products. There's a few veggies one or both of us don't like but veggies can be substituted, swapped between our plates or pushed politely to one side in order to make more room for dessert We both love all ethnic cuisines just about and have previously enjoyed Boma, Marrakesh and Chefs de France. This is supposed to be our dream vacation, a belated 15th/early 16th wedding anniversary trip, a celebration of having some really hard times behind us (with hopefully my Mother having recovered from her heart surgery and cancer diagnosis this year by then) AND we'll be there on Valentines Day. No preassure you know... We upgraded from FD to Deluxe and will be staying 6 nights so that should be 18 credits per person. I have already rearranged these things more times then I can count - and will no doubt fidget with them some more by February if the crowd guides change but at this moment our current ADR's are.. Sunday 2/12 -Plane lands a bit before 1pm, I assume the airline won't feed us. We'll be taking the ME to our resort CSR and I figure we'll duck into the Pepper Market and get a late lunch. Also plan to catch a shuttle to pick up the rental car we'll use for part of the week. Then head over to MK Fireworks at 8pm - ADR for Crystal Palace at 8:30pm. There are EMH that night till midnight, plan to make the most of them. (2 Meal Credits each) We are not morning people and not even Walt Disney can make us morning people so except for 1 ADR at Kona Cafe (mostly for the coffee) our plan is to use leftover meal credits and split breakfasts at the Pepper Market or take out from CSR, and or use snack credits to buy things like pastries and espressos and perhaps yogurt/granola parfaits or fruit cups etc. That or pay OOP for them as required. Monday 2/13 - Epcot 12:25pm Lunch at Le Cellier 7:00pm Dinner at Via Napoli - watch Illuminations afterwards at gondola area (2 MC) Tuesday 2/14 - Valentine's Day - Magic Kingdom - Enforced Romance 12:45pm Lunch at Liberty Tree Tavern 7:30pm Dinner - California Grill - and the obvious watch the fireworks I'd prefer an earlier seating but I took what I could get, figure we'd go up to the bar and have a drink and either be seated post-fireworks or seated just barely before the fireworks. (3 MC) Wednesday 2/15 - Hollywood Studios 12:15pm Lunch - Mama Melrose 8:15pm Dinner - Boma (2 MC) Thursday 2/16 - Epcot 8:00am - Breakfast - Kona Cafe (Press Pot Coffee, and oh yeah food) 1:10pm - Lunch - Chefs de France - hope to see Remy 7:55pm - Dinner - Artist Point (4 MC) Friday 2/17 - Animal Kingdom 11:30pm - Lunch - Yak & Yeti TS Leave park around 4pm and return car - head to Epcot for EMH 7:15pm - Dinner - San Angel Inn - watch Illuminations afterwards (2 MC) Saturday 2/18 - Magic Kingdom 11:30am - Lunch - Liberty Tree Tavern Return to resort mid-afternoon to catch ME Use last of MC or Snack Credits to pick up some food to take to the airport Plane leaves at 7:30pm (1MC, possibly more) That comes to 16 MC used by the end of the trip, leaving us with 2 MC each that we can use to split breakfast platters, grab late night snacks with or use to grab a sandwich to take to the airport with. I know Liberty Tree Tavern shows up twice, we ate dinner there once and liked it - lunch looks good. The other options were a 2nd round at Crystal Palace (thought one char meal was enough for hubby) and I was not able to get an ADR for The Plaza. I had an ADR for Rose and Crown but succumbed and swapped lunches and dinners around so I could get the Le Cellier. We liked Marrakesh last time but I liked their mint tea and coffee the most and I can CS that so it didn't make the cut. I also had an ADR for Yachtsman and traded it for Artist Point because hubby loves Buffalo and Black Raspberry Ice cream so it won out. I wanted to fit Raglan Rd in but I'm not sure we'll make it down to Downtown Disney unless we go late one night.
