I think online opens at 6 am EST and the phones at 7 am EST.
Booking ADRs gets crazy, but it is definitely worth it.
Have you done HDDR?

That means I'll be up at 4 am for the online ones and then on the phone at 5 am for our large party ones. Watch, tonight will be the only night I can sleep.


We haven't done HDDR but it looks like a lot of fun to me.

Hi!

I thought I subbed in here a couple weeks ago, bit with all the stuff going on with my life, I hope you can understand the confusion!

So what happened with your room reservations? How have you nailed down the where you are staying stuff?

My ADR window for the non F&W part of the trip opens soon. I better think about calling. Even though it's October 17th, I think it is still a couple days away.

OK, I just saw this yay! For getting what you wanted and I saw that you are moving to AKV. Which AoA area are you staying in? Sorry I'm asking all these questions instead of going back and seeking it out...i'm having a hard enough time getting up and out of bed each morning.

Hey girl, glad to have you. Your ADR window is in 3 days. We officially begin with ADRs on the 14th and I called this morning.

Yes, I finally figured out the room stuff. We chose THV and AKV SV each for 5 nights. We decided to add on an arrival night at AoA for a few reasons; we wouldnt have arrived until late on the 14th, shopping with our buddies works out much better and gives us a full day trip day on the 14th, and the Nemo area looks really cool. It's one of my family's favorites.

I've read their food court is going to be so good. I'm a sucker for a good food court. It's the mall in me. Nemo. We heart Nemo.

How are you feeling?

So I noticed that you are planning on EPCOT F&W for Monday (the first one you are there). That's our plan for that day too, so we should try and get together, maybe visit a few kiosks and enjoy some of the festival for a bit!

We're at the BCV so we'll just be eating around the world and relaxing.

That sounds like fun! I've got festival on the brain. I'm thinking of ditching Raglan Road the following Saturday and just doing Epcot. Is there an Ireland kiosk or does anyone sell Guinuess? That's Michael's favorite.


I don't think there's a better location during F&W! I'm also sure I couldn't have picked farther locations.

I would avoid the kiosks on Saturday. The festival is busy and the lines are really long.

Ireland is my favorite booth. They have Guinness, this wonderful Fisherman's pie, and a molten chocolate cake. Your girls would love pie, it has shrimp and scallops!

Ooooo, I'm excited. But I think I'll keep Raglan Road for Saturday. I can imagine F&W being a total zoo on the weekends due to locals. I'm so stoked there is an Ireland booth. Michael will be too.

And on vacation we don't follow ANY dietary guidelines other than to eat everything and often. You'll see a lot of shellfish and pork in the pics. We aren't really *good* at home, we just skip the obvious ones.

I love Irish and English food. Is the molten chocolate cake like the one at Coral Reef?
