    I planning a trip next year and I am definetely doing deluxe dining! We will be there 8 nights, 9 days which gives us 24 meal credits each. I'm also trying to squeeze in some extras (la nouba, wonderland tea party, and parasailing). My plans look very aggressive and I haven't finalized anything yet, but I need ideas and would like to see how everyone fits in all the meals. Anyone want to share their plans/itinerary?

    We have done DxDP twice. Once for a short trip and once for a longer trip.

    What we plan is breakfast (usually a character meal) at 7am or so in order to get to the park when it opens. Then lunch between 12:00 and 1pm. I don't eat alot at breakfast so I'm am hungry by then. Then, dinner between 6pm and 7pm. We don't eat much snacks in between so we end of buying alot of stuff with snack credits on our last day.

    Of course, we book all TS for the meals and no QS. But, we also don't do the 2TS as some do with the DxDP.

    Hope that helps!

    Gladly :).

    For 23 Sept - 26 Sept, I will (most likely) be joined by my mom who lives about an hour and a half away. The rest of the time will be just me.

    Thu 23 Sept - Fri 1 Oct (9 days, 8 nights)
    23 Sept
    Arrive by 2pm - Epcot
    Lunch @ CS (or Airport, or something else)
    6:30pm @ San Angel Inn

    24 Sept
    Lunch: LTT @ 12:15pm
    Dinner: Artist Point @ 7pm

    25 Sept
    Breakfast: Tusker House @ 8:30am
    Dinner: Boma @ 5:35pm

    26 Sept
    Lunch: Le Cellier @ 11:30am
    Dinner: Tutto Italia @ 6:05pm (to be replaced with Via Napoli if available)

    27 Sept
    Lunch: Tony's Town Square @ 11:30am
    Dinner: Citrico's @ 7pm

    28 Sept
    Lunch: Sci-Fi Dine In @ 11:40am
    Dinner: Yachsman @ 6:40pm

    29 Sept
    Lunch: Open (CS somewhere, may try a Y&Y walk-up, though that's pretty doubtful :))
    Dinner: Jiko @ 5:35pm

    30 Sept
    Lunch: Rose & Crown @ 1pm
    Dinner: Restaurant Marrakesh @ 6:30pm
    Note: Either of these are placeholders/backup for Via Napoli or Hacienda de San Angel as well, at least dinner for Hacienda that is

    1 Oct
    Lunch: The Plaza @ 11:50am

    I did leave about 4 credits open, which I can use for spur-of-the-moment breakfasts and the like. I also really want to get in to the new restaurants when ADRs open up, so crossing my fingers for that.

    We're not going until next June, but - believe it or not - I've spent the last two or three weeks tweaking what I'd like to have. The times are just estimates because ya never know what you'll get when you make your reservations.

    Our intent is to stay at BCV.

    Day One: Arrival Day
    (Arriving around Noon)
    - Lunch at Beaches & Cream around 1-3ish
    - 6:00ish - Crystal Palace

    Day Two: Magic Kingdom Day
    - 10:30ish - Breakfast at Chef Mickey's (assuming this is an EMH day, we'll be at the park for 8:00 rope drop and then scoot over to the Contemporary via monorail for breakfast, then back to the park
    - Dinner will be early, so lunch will be a snack in the park
    - 4:30ish - Dinner at Cinderella's Royal Table

    Day Three: Epcot Day
    - 8:00 - Breakfast at Cape May Cafe
    - 1:00 - Lunch at Biergarten
    - 6:00 - Dinner at Les Chefs de France

    Day Four: Animal Kingdom Day
    Arriving at AK at rope drop around 9:00 a.m.
    - 10:00 - Breakfast at Tusker House with Donald
    - Early Dinner, so snacks for lunch
    - 5:00 - Dinner at Boma

    Day Five: REST DAY - Play at the Resort
    - Plan to sleep in, so light snack for breakfast.
    - 11:30 - Lunch at Beaches & Cream at Resort
    - 5:30 - Dinner at Ragland Road in DTD
    (We'll probably go to MK sometime after dinner)

    Day Six: Hollywood Studios - Full day
    - Counter service breakfast at hotel before leaving for DHS
    - 12:00 - Lunch at Sci-Fi Dine-in
    - 5:00 - Dinner at 'Ohana at Polynesian

    Day Seven - Hollywood Studios - Full day
    - Counter service breakfast at hotel before leaving for DHS
    - 12:00 - Lunch - Mama Melrose
    - 5:00 - Dinner - Le Cellier at Epcot

    Day Eight - Epcot Day
    Should be an EMH day from 8-9. We'll arrive at 8 and play around.
    - 9:30 - Breakfast - Akershus with the Princesses
    - 1:30 - Lunch - Rose and Crown
    - 7:30 - Dinner - Tepan Edo

    Day Nine - Magic Kingdom - 1/2 Day (Morning)
    Should be an EMH morning from 8-9. We'll arrive at 8.
    - 9:30 - Breakfast - Crystal Palace
    - 2:00 - Lunch - Counter Service (Maybe Hurricane Hannah's at Resort)
    - 7:30 - Dinner - California Grill

    Day Ten - Split Day between MK and Epcot
    - 9:30 - Breakfast - Counter Service Breakfast or maybe Crystal Palace
    - 2:15 - Lunch - Nine Dragons at Epcot
    - 7:30 - Dinner at Tutto Italia

    Day Eleven - Leaving WDW
    - 7:30 - Breakfast - Cape May Cafe

    That leaves me with one remaining TS, and I've been toying with the idea of doing the HDDR in place of the dinner at Crystal Palace, in which case, we'd do CRT for dinner the first night and HDDR for dinner on the second night. This scenario would use all of our meal credits.

    We're doing the deluxe plan for 9 nights this trip. Our last trip we only had it for 3 nights and thought it was a lot of food, but I had tried to squeeze in the most possible and did 3 meals each day and I also hadn't spaced them out much.

    I am debating a few more, and waiting to hear back from Dad and his girlfriend. I was thinking about surprising them with lunch at TRex on the first day, off the dining plan, but not sure. May do dinner there on the 21st, after leaving Hollywood Studios (my least favorite park--great, but just not on the same scale as the others, especially dining).
