    Hello everyone,

    Travel method: Jetblue out of Newark Nj, DME
    Resort: Pop Century ( this is a suprise for my son)
    Accommodations: standard room as of now

    Disney Resort Experience Represented in Group: Sil has been there about 6 times, me and my sons 2nd time ( total Disney fans), Nieces 3th time and she's only going to be 2.

    May 25

    We leave Newark @ 2:20 p.m. and arrive at Mco @ 5:06 p.m. we'll grab DME for Pop century my Sil should all ready be there. Grab something to eat not sure where yet? Any suggestion would be great. i'm thinking somewhere in DTD. After that we're going to go to Shades of Green and buy our tickets (Sil is in the military) and then maybe go for a swim and hit the bed!

    May 26

    We going to Animal Kingdom (not sure on time yet) I'm thinking early because of it being a holiday ( what do you think)

    We have Chef Mickey reservation for 6:25 p.m. not sure how long I should save for travel?

    AK has EMH so I plan to take my son back there after dinner to do the "Big Kid" rides!

    May 27

    MK today, early start then coming back to the resort around 1p.m. for a swim and nap. Do the kid trade around 5 with Sil she'll pick up Grace and me and Ran will head back to Mk to do "Big Kid" rides again!


    May 28

    Hollywood studios today, I think we'll sleep in today get up and go for a swim and leave for HS around 1 p.m..

    Dinner reservation for Prime Time @ 4:05 p.m. we'll eat and then meet with Sil to do Kid trade.

    HS has EMH tonight. So me and Ran will do the "Big Kid" rides and see the last show of Fantasmic!

    May 29

    Epcot today, We get an early start come back around 1p.m. for swim/nap. Do Kid trade w/ Sil. Me and Ran will head back to Epcot and do "Big Kid" rides! No real dinner plans tonight (any suggestions)

    Up at the crack of Dawn Me and Ran have to get the DME @ about 7:30 for our 10:45 a.m. flight home!

    Enjoy your trip! As for suggestions I suggest going to AK early, and there are soooo many places to eat so check at Guest Services and see what they suggest. One the first day stay at the resort and eat, I'm sure everyone will be tired.

    Make sure you give us a TR when you get back! Have fun!

    Sounds like a wonderful time. For the first night if you want to go to DTD your son may enjoy Rainforest Cafe, but if you want something quick then I would try the Earl of Sandwich. On May 26, yes I agree I would try to get there as early as possible, it's also a good time to go on Kilimanjaro Safari because the animals are out more in the morning. You will want to give yourself at least 45 min. to travel to the Contemporary for Chef Mickey's by bus. I don't think it's going to be possible to have 6:25 reservations at Chef Mickeys's and get back to Animal Kingdom in time to do rides (according to the calender they close at 8pm). Actually I know you won't have time because the busses will not be even going to AK by the time you get out. I would grab fast passes as soon as you enter the park for Expedition Everest and do the big kid rides while you are there. On May 29, the day you are in Epcot, I would eat somewhere in World Showcase, check out the menus on allears.net. Or you may like to try the Garden Grill, it revolves and I think they have characters at dinner. On your last day in the MK, I would go for dinner at either Crystal Palace or Plaza Restaurant, but you will need to make ressies ASAP. If you end up needing to go to a CS, then I like Pecos Bill's in Frontierland. Cosmis Rays in Tomorrowland is good too. Have a great time now you biggest problem is that you have to change your name from First Timer
    It's kind of fun to do the impossible!
