I need some help narrowing down my Christmas ADRs and now that I’ve made my FP I really want to figure it out, so here goes…
Our travel dates are 12/17-12/26 and we are staying at CSR. 4 adults, 3 kids, boys ages 8,6,2 1/2
The boys aren’t so great at sit down meals, so I’m focusing on character meals and buffets, we have free dining.
12/19: I have two ADRs for HV breakfast - one at 8:45 & one at 9:55am. Can’t decide which one to keep. JTA is our number one priority for my son’s birthday. Our FP are all at MK where we will hop to after JTA is over and we ride Star Tours - probably around 12:30. That night we have Pirates & Pals cruise, so this is our one “meal” of the day with some other snacks mostly. Do you think our meal will mess up getting to JTA show or can we work around it? We plan to be there at RD EMH.
12/23: This day I have two ADRs for GG (see a theme going here). One for 1130am and one for 2pm. We will have a late night on the 22nd with a late sleigh ride and such, so I’m thinking this is our one meal of the day here after breakfast at the resort. Then we will snack around EPCOT later. Not sure which time to keep! I think both will work, but my boys may want to play mini-golf that day first, so I made the 2pm too.
12/24: I have a preRD (for now) breakfast at BOG at 8:05am but plan on dropping that if the park opens at 8am, which I’m sure it will. But I also have a lunch at 10:55am that day at BOG too. This will make 3 meals at BOG - one breakfast, one lunch and one dinner on our last day (the breakfast is our first day the 12/18). So should I keep lunch? We plan on be at MK til after the parade then jump to EPCOT as we have a 7pm Teppan Edo ressie there
12/25: Christmas! I have all sorts of Christmas morning ADRs (no surprise) mostly because I could not decide obviously where to eat breakfast at. I’m leaning towards Chef Mickeys at 10am which is brunch. Then tour the resorts then head to HS where we will eat supper at HV that evening. But I also had an HV at 9:45am that day in case we didn’t go the 19th. I also have a GG at 8am but I think that might be too early for us with presents and all first. Thoughts on Chef Mickey’s for Christmas? We’ve never eaten there.
12/26: On this day I’m doing things I want, like eat at CP. I have an ADR for 715am (yawn I know!) and 1015am. I actully made a TP for both of these times. I like the 715am one since I put in a long break at the hotel that day. But the later one would work too. I’m also considering only going with myself and maybe my husband and one awake kid and let the grandparents bring everyone else later. Will the park be so packed I wouldn’t want to leave and come back that day? I do have a dinner ADR at BOG
that night at 640pm and we plan to stay late for Wishes and MSEP.
I really appreciate any help on narrowing down my choices!!
