Hi Colleen...glad you liked it (or you are being kind!)

I'm trying to get DH to update his again, but he's been busy...perhaps I could bribe him with pizza later this week as his updates always crack me up.

Oh and stagemomx3 - no binder yet...so I still have papers all over my desk waiting till he gives in

I figured it was about time to post my first itinerary. Yes - we know it will probably be tinkered with, especially if I can add a couple of days to get over my sadness of not going with tiggerbell and rhondalee.

Couple of points - we won't be making any rope drops...ok, we never have. But I told DH he could sleep a little this trip, meaning we won't get to the parks until 10ish

Let me know what you all think...

Saturday Sep 27th
Arrive WDW
Check into ASM
Outlet Mall shopping
Get AP's activated and DDE Card
O'Hana Dinner

Sunday September 28th
Check into AKV
Bears Game
MNSSHP ?
Liberty Tree Tavern Dinner - Never been here and DH has requested it

Monday,September 29th
Epcot
Lunch - Food and Wine Snacks OR Chef's De France for Soup
SIDENOTE - Chef's had the best French Onion we could find and we LOVE French Onion soup even if it is a hundred degrees out
LeCellier Dinner w/DIL's (they've never been)

Tuesday, September 30thh (EMH)
Boma B'Fast w/DIL's (again they've never been)
MK
Wishes
Room Service Dinner???

Wednesday, October 1st
Disney Studios
Brown Derby Fantasmic Pkg? w/DIL's
Fantasmic

Thursday, October 2nd
Animal Kingdom
Boats
California Grill for Wishes w/DIL's

Friday, October 3rd
Breakfast at Trails End at FW w/DIL's (they've never been)
Water Mice if Cart not available till 1pm
Golf Cart Rental Day
Raglan Road Dinner - none of us have been

Saturday, October 4th

So I still need somewhere for Saturday. And of course if I can talk DH into it maybe Friday and Sunday as well

I'm a steak and potatoes girl and DH eats anything, so throw your suggestions my way.

You should totally have a binder!

but only for planning;

when you go - take index cards with only the details you need on them (i.e., ressie #s, park schedules, ADRs and hotel and "other stuff" schedules)

I am so jealous, you two sound so much like DH and me your planning details sound awesome ~ ergo- I am TOTALLY hooked! No lie

Have you been to the outlets yet? DS took me there just this past December - he'd leave me in the Disney Character Outlet store while he walked the entire plaza. seriously.

I see LTT for your MNSSHP nite...book it EARLY! I've missed going there because I waited too long to call

Have you ever done F&WF? If you eat as much as we have you may not need lunch *and* dinner...I personally would go with just dinner. Maybe France has their soup out in the kiosk for F&WF, WDWIG would have the menus if you really wanted to see.

Your whole trip sounds really well planned out...I look forward to reading more - esp with your husbands responses~

I read some of it to my DH last night cause I think yours is that funny - that's huge in my world

Only 6 more months of planning to go...



OT: Hi Jaime!

Tee hee This is exactly what I did last time..I laminated them and everything and had one for each day. DH still made fun of me, but yet again he had a great trip due to the months of planning (a concept he still does not understand! )

Why thank you so much...and if you ever get your DH to actually plan (unlike mine who thinks it just happens and you can change all your ADR's two weeks out! ) let me know how you did it!

Yep - love the outlets. I always try and get there the first day so I can buy a bunch of stuff and then I'll know what's left to by for people at home. We usually only hit the same one...DH will have to say where it is.

There is more than one though somewhere else correct? Know where?

I'm sorry you missed it. This is one of DH's requests so I'm trying to fit it in. Of course, if the Bears have a game late that day or night, who knows what will happen! My calling time is next week...fingers crossed we get everything!

I think this effects DH more than me as I will admit to being a picky eater. I tend more to try wines around the world. I wish France had the French Onion Soup as a taste...I have lots of them but alas, have never seen it, so we have to stop in for a bowl.

OT: Hi Jaime!
Thanks so much for enjoying it! I know, it's always sad when the planning ends, BUT I've already semi-started planning by 40th birthday trip (ok all I've done is send an email to friends saying when we are going, but hey, you have to start somewhere!) So at least I'll have that to look forward to when we get back.

Why Yes! Yes I do!

Premium Outlets has one Character Whse-this is where it is

From I-4 Westbound:
Exit 68 (Rte. 535). Left at light onto Route 535, left at next light onto Vineland Ave. at Little Lake Bryan; proceed 1 mile.

From I-4 Eastbound:
Exit 68 (old 27). Proceed straight across light at end of ramp onto Vineland Avenue; continue 1 mile.


and Prime Outlets has the other;

FROM DISNEY WORLD & West: Take I-4 East to the 75A - UNIVERSAL exit. Follow to International Drive and turn left. The center is located at the North End of International Drive.

My DH will never plan our trips, he's gotten used to the binders and index cards and to my total glee, whenever he looks for information on Orlando - he looks to me

Why thank you for the information. I think it's Prime outlets that we always hit as I remember getting stuck on I Int'l Drive once and it was worse than Chicago rush hour on a Friday! But if DH ever comes back I'm sure he'll correct me if I am wrong

I think mine is still working on it, and like I said - no binder...I'll have to post a picture of my messy desk since DH won't let me have one and I have no where else to put my confirmations

As expected, I've messed with the itinerary already. Since this is our first trip "home" as DVC members I'd really like to hit "Welcome Home Wednesdays" at the Boardwalk. Hey - gotta get something for handing over all that cash! So that meant flipping days around. OH and tonight DH starts in again about, don't forget..I want to go here and here. Arrghhh - it is two days before ADR's and I thought I had set where and when to go. So now I'm going to go with a longer itinerary and hope he can switch a day at work to get us down there a day early.

Here's the new agenda...feel free to add any comments!

Friday, Sept 26th - Yep, this starts the changes - Added Day
Arrive WDW
Check into ASM
Get AP's activated and DDE Card
Dinner at Boatwrights or even at the lounge for their yummy Garlic Bites and French Onion Soup

Saturday Sep 27th - And the changes continue
Outlet Mall shopping - maybe hit the one NOT on I'ntl drive (thanks tiggerwannabe)
DTD
O'Hana Dinner - Never been and DH requested it
MK for Wishes (our only chance) and Spectro

Sunday September 28th - Pretty much the same
Check into AKV
Bears Game - praying its an early game
Liberty Tree Tavern Dinner - Another never been here and DH request
MNSSHP

Monday, September 29th - Staying the same
Epcot
Lunch - Food and Wine Snacks OR Chef's De France for Soup
SIDE NOTE - Chef's had the best French Onion we could find and we LOVE French Onion soup even if it is a hundred degrees out
LeCellier Dinner w/DIL's (they've never been)

Tuesday, September 30th - Total Switch
Boma B'Fast w/DIL's (they've never been)
Disney Studios
Brown Derby Fantasmic Pkg? w/DIL's
Fantasmic

Wednesday, October 1st - The next in the total switches
MK
Welcome Home Wednesdays in the late afternoon at Boardwalk
Norway Dinner - Now I find out DH wants to go to Norway for dinner...as I said before, I'm very picky and didn't see anything I'd like. But since we'll be at BW anyway, might as well head to Epcot. Any picky people been to the restaurant and what did you have?

Thursday, October 2nd - Same
Animal Kingdom
Boats
California Grill for Wishes w/DIL's

Friday, October 3rd - Dinner switch
Breakfast at Trails End at FW w/DIL's (they've never been)
Water Mice if Cart not available till 1pm
Golf Cart Rental Day
Grand Floridan Cafe Dinner? - Switching to this cause I really want one of those fancy you can only get at the GF cakes

Saturday, October 4th - Adding Raglan Road here
Epcot & MK
Raglan Road for Dinner if we get to stay until Monday

Sunday, October 5th - Tee hee, making this an extra day now too Of course that's only if DH can get another day through switches or holiday time Or if we (GULP!!) fly
Epcot & MK
Boma Dinner

Monday, October 6th
Leave

So that's it - at least until I start calling this weekend for ADR's or DH decides to eat elsewhere again after I have everything set!

How about one of these?




To added days...

My friend and enabler wants DH and me to come to FL in october. I think she has a later trip planned tho...gotta go check those dates, maybe I'll get my Disney fix in after all

ADR Time and change and change and change

So the time comes for us to book all our ADR's - meaning I had to be up at 6am on Sunday Yep - so much for sleeping in on the weekend. But it paid off - pixie dust was with us and we got everything we wanted within a couple of minutes or right on of when we requested. Although I'm sure DH will try and change it all anyway right before the trip like always

So we now have:
Boma for Breakfast and Dinner
LeCellier
Brown Derby
Grand Floridian Cafe
Trails End Breakfast
O'Hana
Le Chefs De France for SOUP!!!!
California Grill
Liberty Tree Tavern
And the last minute addition of Akershus House by DH, which means Raglan Road is out unless he'd like to add more days

So all is well and I email the DIL's of what we have...uh oh, we now have changes. So luckily I call today and I can still move everything around and get the times I wanted. Things moved days which means we'll have a new agenda again. Oh and the Grand Floridian Cafe is out and Citricos is now in.

And I'd like to point out that NONE of the restaurants were my pick...looks like they are going to be all MINE on our 2009 trip

Although in all fairness and for a fear DH will argue with me on this.."Our" picks were Boma and Chef's for soup...otherwise I chose nothing, nada, zippo. Hmmmm maybe staying an extra day or two would pay off so I can have a Tyry pick And I do like everywhere we will be dining, except maybe Norway as that one has me worried.

And as for our intinerary, Thursday will now be a play day and Friday we'll head to the Animal Kingdom. Hopefully, this will be the last of flipping the days around.

I've eaten in Norway for dinner...it's notsobad....the only thing I didn't like I never like anyway (salmon.) Everything else was different but good. Esp the meatballs in gravy~

I have not tried Raglan road...is there even a play day that you'll wind up downtown to where you may try Raglan Road on the fly? If you do a review would be most appreciated~

Wolfgang Puck's Sushi is my hubby and BIL's new favorite for food on the fly while downtown~

A small change

Well it's not ADR changes this time - now it's hotel changes. I'm still trying to stretch this vacation the best I can and hoping DH can get the Friday before we should be leaving off. I had us booked into All Star Music for Friday and Sat night. Figuring we'd arrive sometime on Friday if we took off right after he gets off work on Thursday night.

Of course if you ask him you'd get "of course we could be there on Friday - it's only a two hour plane flight"

Anyway, just for the heck of it and never thinking there would be anything available since it is the first weekend of the F&W Fest, I called DVC to see if a BW or BC studio would be available. We really could use the points for our big 2009 trip, but I figured what the heck...we could always borrow from 2010

I really didn't think it would come to that like I said but lo and behold they had a standard view studio available. GREAT! I will take it. It will eat my points but isn't that what they are for...and no cash out of pocket for All Stars means more to buy things with

I kind of slyly ran it past DH by asking if he would stay at the BWV even without a BW view...he thought about it and I thought he would say no, but then stunned me by saying yes. Whoo hooo...our first time as DVC members and we'll get to experience not only our home resort, but BW as well. For some reason I see me getting very little sleep for the first two nights being that close to so many things and the fact the MK is open till Midnight on Saturday!
