We are two weeks away from our next vacation to Walt Disney World. This is a Christmas present for our children and it will be a complete surprise to them. They have been asking when our next trip will be and we have been telling them how we are setting up a Grand Gathering Family Reunion in December 2011 (which we are) so they are completely unaware. We are picking them up from school and heading south. We figure they will start to get a clue when we leave their Aunt and Uncle’s house in North Carolina to keep driving south.
I am most excited about our dining plan. I plan on reviewing table service and counter service restaurants that people have asked the most questions about. I plan to do reviews, with photos, of the restaurants and food for:
Tony’s Town Square – We have dinner reservations and hope it is a nice evening to have dinner on the patio and watch Spectromagic.
Boma – This is for our date night. We are leaving the children at the Neverland Club and heading out for a delicious dinner ALONE.
Hollywood & Vine – We have dinner reservations for our first night. Having never been to this restaurant before and hearing mixed reviews I want to see for myself what the restaurant is really like.
Cinderella’s Royal Table – This is a restaurant we dine at every trip. We will be taking my brother-in-law and sister-in-law for their first trip to the castle for dinner. We always have good luck here with good dinners. I hope our streak continues.
Crystal Palace – This is another restaurant we eat at every trip. This time we have dinner reservations as the children love the peel and eat shrimp.
Biergarten – We have not been to the Biergarten since 2005. We are excited to be returning and seeing the band’s Christmas show. We will also be watching the Candlelight Processional on this night so it should be a great evening.
Tusker House – We have lunch reservations here. This is the one reservation we are having second thoughts about. We will have been on vacation one week at this point and think we may end up at Downtown Disney rather than Animal Kingdom. I may try to change this reservation to a Cape May Cafe Clambake dinner.
I also plan on reviewing and photographing as many counter service restaurants as possible. On our itinerary are: Columbia Harbour House, Pizzafari, Cosmic Rays, Sunshine Seasons and the counter service restaurants in Mexico, the United Kingdom, Morocco and France.
We should come back with tons of pictures and very full bellies. Can’t wait to share it all with you!
Be sure to check in mid-December when I will start posting all my new dining reviews, Disney at Christmas pictures and hotel review.
