We are going on our first WDW family trip October 2015. Big party of 8: DH & myself, DS10, DS8, DD6, & DD3, and one set of grandparents. We will be there during F&W (also new to us, obviously) and I am completely puzzled about how to choose between our 2 ADR’s or just doing F&W.
We are using the DDP, 3 of 4 kids can be a little non-adventurous when it comes to food, and I’m a little worried about OOP expenses. It will be one evening after the nap (busy morning in MK, starting w/ EMH) so we won’t get to Epcot before 5:00. It will be our only time really walking through World Showcase. We will do Future World and Akershus next day.
Original (preferred) plan was to have a dining reservation that would afford us a great view of Illuminations rather than having to hold down a fireworks spot… but not sure if that will work, and don’t know if we want to commit so much time at a restaurant. But it might be good after such a busy morning!?!
the 2 ADR’s I have now are R&C for 5:45 and and SanAn at 7:30. I think everyone in the group will equally like either restaurant; i just need to choose one. eating F&W is the second plan, (canceling both ADR’s) and getting kids’ meals if they can’t be satisfied otherwise. Just can’t decide! Please help!
