9/14 arrival day 10:23 a.m. land at MCO
12 noon arrive at Pop Century
lunch at Everthing Pop
hopefully get room, unpack, freshen up some and head to MK (about 2-3 p.m)!!!!!
hoping to get dinner ressies at The Wave 5-5:30 p.m.
head back to room after dinner for a good nights sleep!!

-- You may want to make your ADR at The Wave a little later - that way you can have a more "relaxed" time at MK to catch the parade and do a few things, or just walk around ...

9/15 Epcot day- arrive about 9 a.m
12:30-1 p.m lunch at Tangerine Cafe
tour some more
head back to POP about 3 p.m to relax by the pool, have a drink and freshen up for dinner @ 7:30-8 p.m O'hanas.
9:30 fireworks from Poly beach from MNSSHP

-- Since you'll (in theory ...) have a good night's sleep, why not try to arrive at Epcot around 8:30 and catch that first ride of the day on Soarin'?

9/16 MK day- get there 8-8:30 for opening ceremonies...(need tips, what time should I get there? where should we stand? never been so love some tips)
lunch at Terrace Noodle 12:30-1 p.m.
break late afternoon?
Dinner at 7 p.m hopefully KONA, if not, Grand Floridian Cafe (thanks for the ideas guys!!)
MK closes at 9 p.m so that will be it for this day, unless we feel like heading to DTD after dinner for a bit?

-- Get there by 8:15 ... there's a planter/seating area that's dead center on the train station that is a nice spot ... and don't forget to hit the Main Street Bakery for a morning "snack" as you walk up Main Street!
Terrace Noodle Station may not be open - so have a back up (upstairs at the Columbia Harbor House almost feels like a TS restaurant ...) Take a break in the afternoon and then an early dinner ... then back to the MK for Wishes and some "nightlife" ...

9/17 Epcot
opens at 9 a.m. will shoot for that time, get Soarin' FP 1st
lunch at Sunshine Season
WS in afternoon after lunch
dinner 7 p.m. Teppan Edo (if not, Le Celliar)

-- Get there by 8:30 ... you may need an afternoon break here (especially if you didn't take one the day before ...) - or just sit/sleep through a few screenings of "Impresions de France" ...

9/18 departure day, check out of room, have them hold luggage
DHS (opens at 9 a.m.) try to get there close to opening to get FP for Toy Story Mania
lunch at Mama Melrose 12 noon
leave about 2 p.m to head back to POP, assuming ME will p/u at 3 p.m for our 7:20 p.m flight.....

-- Again, get there by 8:30 - the "opening" at DHS is also kinda fun!! ME will pick you up about 3 hours ahead of your flight ... Good luck with TSM!!

So....what do you think??
Looks good!!

I agree with joelp about maybe making your dinner ADR for a little bit later on your first night so that you can enjoy your time at MK without feeling rushed.

Also, I LOVE Kona, it's one of my favorite Disney restaurants, I can't believe I didn't think to suggest it. You've got some great choices, I hope they all come through for you!

That's a good idea about making my 1st night ressie at the Wave a bit later....I was trying to throw Mom a bone and make it early so we can get "home" earlier and rest, since she was so worried about going to MK to begin with...maybe I'll make it for about 6....even if I only get an hour at MK, I'll be a happy girl!!! Okay, at least 2 hours...lol!!

Ohh, good you love Kona, too!! Let's hope I can get in!!!!

I think you have a full but not too full agenda, you built in some time to rest, and have quite a few restaurants I've been dying to try. Can't wait to hear if you get them and, if so, what you think.

Are the online ADRs available yet or we still have to call? I need to check out the dining thread. I am two weeks from my ADR day and totally unprepared!
Hey Christine,
I wanted to let you know, I inquired about the whole online ADR's (posted a link over on the Rest. board) and evidentally only TA's and CM's can do it now, but POSSIBLY in a few weeks it may be available for the rest of us. Guess we'll have to wait and see......

Thanks for checking, Kristen! I'm not sure whether I'm hoping for online ADRs to be available when my window opens or not. All I know is that nobody (and no system) better be messing with my ADR mojo!

How exciting to be able to make your ADRs! Makes it more real. We just passed our 6 month mark for the December trip and I was a little sad that they no longer take ADRs that far out.
