Hey!! You'll be in my neck of the woods!! Uh - shore ... sand? (well - the NJ Pinelands are close by, too ... )

Look to the west and wave "hello" when you hit Exit 88 on the Parkway ...

Hours!

I just went onto WDW site and Epcot has hours posted....but no one else (other than waterparks,but we're not doing those...).....I don't see any EMH there either...what is going on? This is what it says for each day I'm there....

Epcot
9-7 pm Future World

Is this weird or is it just me?

It's always so exciting when the hours go up! Then you can really do some planning!

Plans??

Okay....here we go...trying to work this out....thoughts? ideas? they are always welcome!!!!

9/14 arrival day (I still think we should go to MK for a bit this day, just because, we're in Disney World!!), we'll have lunch at POP (Everything Pop) because most likely we'll be getting there about noontime, so we'll have lunch, check in, maybe (hopefully!) get settled.....and then we thought we'd go to DTD for a bit, which is usually how I start since we have the boys and we don't want to waste a ticket for just a few hours, but since it's just us adults and we could just meander..I think it would be fun to go to MK, not sure I can convince Mom though. She's convinced we'll be too tired......not so sure about Dinner this night, either? Somewhere on the monorail, I'm thinking the Wave at the Contemporary, so at least we can see MK!! LOL!!

9/15 Epcot 8-9 a.m. EMH, park closes at 9 p.m.
lunch at Tangerine Cafe- 1 CS
dinner --- okay, here is the deal, was thinking Ohana's so we can see the fireworks at MK (MNSSHP is going on) at 9:30, so have a late dinner and watch from Poly, OR stay in the park and have dinner at (I hope!) Le Celliar...thoughts?

9/16 MK closes at 8 p.m.
Lunch (Terrace Noodle) 1 CS
was thinking dinner at Ohana but if we did that the night before, were is good at MK? This is the only real day we'll be here.

9/17 Epcot 9 p.m. close
Lunch at Sunshine Season- 1CS
Dinner at Teppan Edo or Le Celliar..if we don't do Le Celliar our 2nd night (see above)...

9/18 all parks open at 9 a.m. (our last day!)
We are planning on going to DHS this morning, most likely ME will pick us up at POP at 3 or about then. So we'll have a nice good long time there. Not sure if we should have a sit down lunch/ counter lunch....thoughts?

This is pretty rough, so would love any input....yay, I can plan!!!

I hope everyone has a great weekend!!!

Hi Kristen!! Yay your hours finally got posted, that is awesome! Your plans look great so far. I like the idea of doing Ohana 9/15 and Le Cellier on 9/17. I heard if you try to book Le Cellier later in your stay your chances of getting it are higher. That worked for our trip! A sit down lunch at DHS on your last day could be a nice way to end the trip...we ate at Mama Melrose last trip and loved it, could work for you girls since this is a kid-free trip! Just some ideas, have fun planning!

I'm off to Disney tomorrow, woo hoo! Talk to you when we're back

I think you should really try hard to convince her. It's not like you have to even go on any rides, you could at least eat dinner in MK if you wanted. I think Wave is a great idea or what about Kona?

Oh yes, really really try to see the MNSSHP fireworks, I love them even more than Wishes. Another thing you can try, is to time a boat ride right over to the MK or the ticket and transportation so you can see the fireworks from the water.

You could do the Plaza or Tony's. Marc & I really liked Tony's.

Personally, I would do a sitdown meal on your last day, even though it takes up time it will give you a chance to relax a bit before you have to catch ME back to the airport.

I just went on to the WDW web site and it looks like the hours they have posted are differ somewhat what you have - so you'd better double-check ...

... and "They're there!!" ...

The hours for AK aren't posted yet - - but I'll bet there's evening EMH there ... so maybe head over to AK with a dinner break at the AKL at Boma!! ?? (and don't you love how this green font clashes with your pink ... ? )

9/15 Epcot 8-9 a.m. EMH, park closes at 9 p.m.
lunch at Tangerine Cafe- 1 CS
dinner --- okay, here is the deal, was thinking Ohana's so we can see the fireworks at MK (MNSSHP is going on) at 9:30, so have a late dinner and watch from Poly, OR stay in the park and have dinner at (I hope!) Le Celliar...thoughts?

Make ADRs for both and then see what you feel like doing that night ...


9/16 MK closes at 8 p.m.
Lunch (Terrace Noodle) 1 CS
was thinking dinner at Ohana but if we did that the night before, were is good at MK? This is the only real day we'll be here.

Again - make double ressies and play it by ear ... or have lunch at one of the Monorail resorts and then dinner at a CS in the MK ...

9/17 Epcot 9 p.m. close
Lunch at Sunshine Season- 1CS
Dinner at Teppan Edo or Le Celliar..if we don't do Le Celliar our 2nd night (see above)...

Tappan Edo ...

9/18 all parks open at 9 a.m. (our last day!)
We are planning on going to DHS this morning, most likely ME will pick us up at POP at 3 or about then. So we'll have a nice good long time there. Not sure if we should have a sit down lunch/ counter lunch....thoughts?

CS lunch places at DHS are just "OK" ... again, make a ressie and play it by ear ...
Now - normally - I wouldn't recommend making double-ADRs ... but since there's only 2 of you and it'll be during the wekk ... go for it ... (but also play nice and cancel the one you're not going to use once you decide you're not going to use it ... )
