My wife and I have spent a lot of time working through the details of our trip. This trip is very food-focused, unlike any previous trip we’ve ever done. And, with all the changes in hours and what is opening, it has been “fun” figuring out where we’re going to eat where. To make matters worse, we are both kind of picky eaters in the sense that we aren’t into any fancy food. We rather like places like Chili’s to eat, and neither of us are keen on any food that was originally alive under water (except, perhaps, in the most inelegant form, such as beer-battered pollock or something).
So, anyhow, here are our plans as they stand now. Our 60 day ADR date is 14 days away. And we are staying at Boardwalk Villas for our trip.0
Dec. 1, arrival day: Lunch at DTW airport. Raglan Rd. in Disney Springs in the evening.
Dec. 2, HS day: Eat QS in the park for lunch (Backlot?). Take bus from HS to OKW and eat dinner at Olivia’s around 5:00 pm. This should give us time to check out OKW, eat, and still manage to get back on a bus back to HS so that we can walk back to Boardwalk.
Dec. 3, EP Day 1: Take MK bus, and walk over to Contemporary. Chef Mickey’s for breakfast, as well as check out any Christmas decor. We might also monorail over to GF to see Christmas decorations. Then bus from Contemporary or GF to Epcot. QS lunch (Sunshine seasons?). Then Via Napoli for dinner
Dec. 4, MK Day 1: Just QS in the park for lunch. For dinner, head over to WL to see Christmas decorations and eat at Whispering Canyon early enough that we can hopefully get back to MK and catch the bus back to Boardwalk. (Backup plan would be to take bus from WL to DS and then a bus back to Boardwalk from there…but hopefully not!)
Dec. 5, AK: Lunch at Yak and Yeti! In the evening, head to Disney Springs. My wife wants to try Poutine there, and I’ll probably get something from The Polite Pig or something.
Dec. 6, EP Day 2: Lunch around the World showcase food booths. Book San Angel Inn for dinner. (This was our one and ONLY Table Service restaurant during our honeymoon, so there is a nostalgia there…but we also considered La Hacienda, but the food choices there just didn’t appeal to us as much, so we’re going back to San Angel Inn for the ambiance!)
Dec. 7, HS Day 2: Head to HS and hop on a bus to AKL to check it out (hopefully see some Christmas decor). Then take bus back to HS. This day, we don’t have any planned ADRs. Just QS, probably eating at the Bakery at the Boardwalk for dinner.
Dec. 8, MK Day 2: Eating lunch at The Plaza. Dinner? QS.
Dec. 9, EP and departure day: Eating lunch around World Showcase again. We’ll likely have to catch DME around 4:00, so we’ll eat dinner at MCO.
