I’m still being cautiously optimistic about our Nov. 15th trip…I really feel the park will be open, I just hope things have “normalized” enough to feel comfortable going.
BUT, with that said…tomorrow is my ADR day. I’ve done this 9 times before so I know the drill, but am trying a couple new places for our family (and a few are with another family/friends of ours going the same week). I am going to operate under the assumption we are going and plan full steam ahead knowing it can all be canceled if it doesn’t work out.
I would LOVE anyone’s thoughts on the following. I know to not necessarily go in chronological order for days of my trip but rather by most difficult to book restaurant first, obviously…for this trip that is 'Ohana, party of 9, booking that first thing. I feel confident I’ll get a decent dinner time slot, we’ve booked it for larger parties before. So definitely going for that one first and while doing so I will be on the phone w/ my friend who’s family is in our 'Ohana party, as she is also booking dining for her family and BBB and Savi’s for her kids…we aren’t doing BBB and did Savi’s in December so I just have ADRs to worry about (I am taking care of 'Ohana for all of us though, can’t leave that to a first timer right?! IF for some reason I can’t get us a party of 9 res, I will make one for my family of 4 and she will make one for her family of 5.
So my next question is on which order to prioritize booking these in terms of difficulty to reserve, as this will be my first time booking these particular restaurants (have eaten at MM but not for the F! dining package before):
-Yak & Yeti - party of 4, dinner
-Liberty Tree Tavern - party of 9 (but can s split if we need to) for lunch
-Mama Melrose for F! dining package - party of 9 but can split if need to (probably dinner but still discussing maybe lunch - but need to see what time F! starts as we don’t want to have it TOO close and have to rush through dinner)
-50’s Prime Time (party of 4)
Also - HEA fireworks dessert party at Tomorrowland Terrace, should I be ok booking this after ADRs or should it be prioritized somewhere in there lol?
Thanks everybody!!! :)
