11 Days of DxDP: There's always room for dessert. UPDATE 2/23: Starring Rolls/Sci-Fi

DISers! I'm a long time lurker. I only recently starting posting when I finally had a trip to plan. Today is exactly 100 days before my husband and I check in at POR for our anniversary trip, so I thought it would be a good day to start a PDR. We'll be spending Nov. 25-27 at Universal before spending 11 days at Disney. We got free dining at POR and decided to upgrade to DxDP.

This is us on our wedding day:



I'm Jess, a 26 year old medical student. I'll try just about any kind of food, except seafood. My favorite food is either chicken or chocolate. I have a major sweet tooth.

My husband is Pete. He's a 25 year old computer programmer. He is an even more adventurous eater than myself, and he loves seafood. He has never been to Disney World, and had no interest in it until he saw pictures of the food.

As I haven't been to Disney in nearly a decade, and my husband has never been, I'd love to hear your thoughts, opinions, and recommendations on restaurants, parks, and everything in between!

Again,


ADRs will be in the next post.

We almost ended up staying at POFQ. We originally wanted to stay there, but when free dining came out there was nothing available. I checked every day, and after about 2 weeks there was an opening. I switched, and then DH said, "Why'd you do that? I decided I want to stay at POR more than POFQ. Didn't I tell you?" So I changed back to POR.

I finally managed to snag a Be Our Guest ADR after 2 hours of getting a busy signal. It's at 4 pm the night that DH and I are going to MVMCP.

Hi Jess! I'm really looking forward to reading your reviews. How exciting to be introducing your DH to all the magic of WDW! Oh, and I hope you don't mind that I've added you to my UPCOMING TRIP LIST.

I followed along with your dining report, but never posted anything, because I started reading it when you were over halfway done with it. I really enjoyed your reviews!

Thanks for adding me to the upcoming trip list. The list was a great idea. I'm glad to have a few more reports to read before I get to go back to Disney.

Good for you, getting BOG! I got mine this morning, automated computer took it. Later this afternoon I read on the Disney Blog that there was a glitch since the automated system neglected to take my credit card to hold it and all reservations are to be cancelled tonight!

You might want to call back and attach your cc number, if you havent already

Thanks! It was an ordeal to get that ADR this morning. I hope it was all worth it.

I got my cc attached earlier. That was harder for me than getting the ADR in the first place. I had to talk to 4 different CM's before one was willing to add my cc.

Yay for Be Our Guest! Hopefully the food quality will live up to the seemingly incredible atmosphere. And even though you haven't been to WDW in nearly a decade, I think you've done a great job making some impressive ADRs.

I'm looking forward to Be Our Guest, and I'm trying to set reasonable expectations. But after calling close to 200 times yesterday, it's hard to set low expectations.

I'm pretty excited to finally get back to Disney after so long. All the ADRs are just an added bonus.

Changes

Because lots of people managed to snag Be Our Guest ADRs, lots of people cancelled other ADRs. I managed to get an earlier time for 'Ohana. I dropped Cape May for dinner and moved Whispering Canyon Cafe into its place. I added a couple of ADRs to surprise Pete. He's always wanted to go to a hibachi restaurant, so I added Teppan Edo. I also added Sanaa.

Hopefully I leave my ADRs alone now, but the chances of that happening seem small.
