    Tiffany's Great Journey to the World

    Hi All! I'm so excited and completely stunned to say I'm going to Walt Disney World!! Again . I couldn't wait for 100 day's to start a pre trip report, I'm just to excited! Now to the beginning of the story way back in December 09.
    Another member of the boards (disneyfanatic101) and I were planning a WDW trip in December of this year for a meet in the Magic Kingdom. Unfortunately plans never really did come together because my dad got a job here in MO and we moved from VA. Being the bottom one at work it would have been very hard and unlikely to get the week off of Christmas. It was looking very grim for a WDW trip this year. Then Disney announced the extension of free dining! Of course I got to thinking and plotting how to get my parents on board. I looked up an unbeatable deal for November 14th-19th with upgraded full dining. We were staying at a value so we wanted to upgrade from the free quick service to the full plan and the price was still awesome! So here are the details!

    Dates Nov 14th-19th 2010
    Who's going? Myself (birthday girl) Mom, Dad
    How we getting there? Were driving from MO to my old hometown of Richmond, VA with our pets to drop them off at my grandmothers house on Friday after work stopping in Kentucky then driving the rest Saturday. Then Sunday 2:00am were heading down south to WDW!!! Were driving straight through with minimal stops so we can get there as fast as possible. I know it's crazy but we have no one to watch the pets while where gone out here plus it gives us time to see the family for a few hours.
    What resort: All Star Music
    Dining reservations
    Monday 15th- AM: Chef Mickey's at 7:30. PM: Crystal Palace 7:15 (I think cant remember) (birthday dinner)
    Tuesday 16th- 50's Prime Time Cafe
    Wednesday 17th- The Garden Grill
    Thursday 18th- 1900 Park Fare (our first time eating here! How is it?)

    Park days:
    Monday- MK for a magical birthday! Hollywood Studios for emh if were not to tired
    Tuesday- Animal Kingdom and Hollywood Studios for Osborne lights!!
    Wednesday- Epcot
    Thursday- MK again for our final day.

    We have never booked a trip to WDW this close in advance and I'm so happy because we don't have to wait 6 months to a year before we go! I'm so thrilled that we booked before Music filled like all the standard rooms at Movies did (we usually stay at Movies)

    Re: Tiffany's Great Journey to the World

    125 days! I can't believe that were so close, I guess cause we always booked 6 or more months in advance. When we went to Disneyland we only had a 2 week notice lol, its nice not having to wait sooooooooo long for a Disney trip!

    Re: Tiffany's Great Journey to the World

    Sounds like a very well-planned trip! How can you NOT enjoy yourself with that itinerary? Mine is about a month after yours and I have one meal booked, plus my room. That's about it.
    Really, Walt? Disneyland is MY land? Why would I want a silly little land when I can have the WORLD.

    Yup I usually have it planned out to the tee. I'm sure you will be doing more in a few weeks lol, definitely get the dining ressys since free dining is extended, when I booked mine online I only had two times to chose from and one time for Chef Mickey's.

    Re: Tiffany's Great Journey to the World

    I'm with DVC, so I don't get the free dining. Which is why I usually only book one meal. Less planning that way, I guess. Still need to buy tickets for the Christmas Party, if I even decide to go this year. It's starting to get a bit played out since there's rarely anything ever new.

    Oh okay. Yeah we went in 08 and 06 and loved it but were not going this year since we don't have that much extra money for it. I can see the castle lights while I'm there in the park and I'm fine with that

    We did free dining in 08 and I didn't see any difference in the service, we love it.
