    I noticed I could still get a passholder discount room for Easter Weekend. I have the 3 days off of work. I've been pulling extra long hours since I came back from my last trip & I need a break. A break during the 2nd or 3rd busiest time of the year at the world? Yeah, I'm crazy.

    What Actually Happened:

    Friday April 2nd, 2010
    Yak & Yeti/Dawa Bar
    Jiko/All Star Music Food Court

    Saturday April 3rd, 2010
    All Star Music Food Court/Snacks/Tokyo Dining
    Il Mulino

    Sunday April 4th, 2010
    Breakfast/All Star Music Food Court Lunch
    California Grill
    Wishes Dessert Party

    They are dangerous! I'm also lucky my husband understands the need of breaks and lets me do as I please (within reason)

    Awesome! I'll make sure I have my camera this time to the quality is much better.

    Thanks! I can't wait to eat & take them.

    I"m glad you've been reading along! It will be fun. I can't wait :yay:

    I'm actually a little shocked at how open the dining reservations seem to be. I mean the wicked popular places are full (Le Cellier, California Grill) but most everything else seems to have choices. I'm sure I'll change my plan like 5 times this week as I find better options w/ things I want.

    On a whim, I tried for the Wishes Dessert Party on Easter Sunday!

    It was available :cool1:

    Normally, I wouldn't do the dessert party, but I have a feeling (err know) its going to be a mad house in the Magic Kingdom that day & I rather know I have a seat to enjoy Wishes from.

    That does sound like a good plan! And a desert party . . . especially in front of the castle . . . especially since there are no calories in WDW . . . right??? I hope???

    Thanks for joining along!

    I totally agree - there are no calories in WDW I mean you walk & sweat enough so its ok.


    I got back yesterday & had a great time! The parks weren't that bad but I've also been enough to know that I need to get to the park before it opens and there is so much I can get done by the time the people that sleep in get to the park. When I got home, I realized it was my 180 days to my October trip! So I made that plan and called to make the reservations. So that is all set now until the F&W Special Events get released at least.

    I think I only kept 2 of the original ADRs I made but I had no trouble eating where I wanted. The joys of going solo! :woohoo:

    I'll upload my pictures when I get home from work tonight & get this started!

    Yup! I love sneaking in those trips. Being in driving distance & having a nice husband lets me be spoiled (especially when I buy a overpriced Dooney and Bourke purse while I'm down there too) I may be able to do another impromptu trip this summer but I have a lot of projects going on at work that may end up having to be completed on the weekends so I'll hold off on planning anything since I do have my husband's work cruise in May & a weekend in North Carolina planned for June.

    Our plan for October (is fluid until special events come out)

    Oct 1st
    Dinner - Chick-fil-a or other fast food

    Oct 2nd - Nothing Planned as we may do the Wine & Dine Half Marathon, if we don't do the Marathon, we'll do Party of the Senses Wine View Room
    Breakfast - Food Court (haven't booked the value resort for Oct 1st yet)
    Pool
    Relaxing
    Massage (?)

    Oct 3rd -
    Nothing planned for morning until we decide on the Half Marathon or not but most likely Hollywood Studios when we wake up
    Dinner - California Grill
    MNSSHP

    Oct 4th - EPCOT
    Breakfast -
    Lunch - Coral Reef
    Dinner - Shula

    Oct 5th - Animal Kingdom
    Breakfast -
    Lunch - Yak & Yeti
    Dinner - Il Mulino

    Oct 6th - Downtown Disney/Disney Quest
    Breakfast
    Lunch - TRex
    Dinner - Fulton

    Oct 7th - Hollywood Studios
    Breakfast - Cape May Cafe
    Lunch - Nothing
    Dinner - Bistro

    Oct 8th - Magic Kingdom
    Breakfast -
    Lunch - Liberty Tree Tavern
    Dinner - Citricos

    Oct 9th - EPCOT
    Breakfast -
    Lunch - Tokyo Dining
    Dinner - Party of the Senses Wine View Room

    We are staying at the Beach Club so we'll be coming and going from the World Showcase also in the afternoons/evenings. We'll also do some of the wine/food seminars when those are announced. We will only do 1 of the Party of the Senses if we decided against the Half Marathon. If I wasn't with my husband, I wouldn't do the Wine View Room but knowing him - he would hate it where you wander around without a table or the cattle call at the beginning. I think he would enjoy it more to have the assigned seat, the liquor available (he hates wine but is getting better about it) and such and less cranky husbands = happier Dis_Yodas.

    Breakfasts will probably be in room or at the Marketplace.

    Thanks. I promise to start the reviews tomorrow morning! I left my receipts on my desk at work so I dont have pricing info w/ me today.

    Oh thats great! :banana: I've done PFTS twice before & loved it & this will be my husband's first time to it. I guess we just have to wait until the schedule gets posted in July or August.

    It is! Maybe we'll have to all meet for liquid crack from France (also known as Citron Slushies)

    It was! While I did a lot while I was down there I made sure I got my relaxation in.

    Yup, I took lots of pictures of the food.

    Thanks for joining in!
