You're totally not crazy, because I am going the week before you and had my days planned out a couple of weeks ago, lol.

Thanks, I hope I have no problems, I have heard people not getting Le Cellier b/c of the free dining bounceback and pin, and of course people booking and hoping for free dining. So I will let you know tomorrow.

We had no problem getting an ADR at LeCellier, so hopefully you won't either.

I love the fact that some folks are planners like me! Some people think I'm crazy! :)
We just got abck and ate at many of the places you are eating - We didn't get dinner reservations at LeCellier - had to settle for a 12:30 lunch..it was worth it!
I was not crazy about 1900 Park Fare - have you been there? I'd heard lots of good things, but I didn't think the food was the best of WDW...Loved the characters, but my DH is still talking about how every restaurant was SO good except 1900 PF. You will have to post after your trip and let me know what you think.

Your plan looks really good! Very similar to the one we had...LOVED Coral Reef...

Stephanie,
What did you eat at Coral Reef? I am not a big fish eater, I made the ADR because my uncle and my cousins (who all go fishing constantly! lol) wanted to eat there and dine with the fishies, so I thought I'd give it a go. Did you eat @ 50's Prime Time Cafe? How was it?
Every other place I made ADRs for we have eaten there before. We did eat at 1900 PF twice the food was pretty decent both times. DD loved the chicken, I make something similar to it at home and she actually calls it "Cinderella Chicken" lol.

I got everything within 20 minutes of what I wanted, but I couldn't get Le Cellier for the 21st, so I had to switch Coral Reef with Le Cellier and dine their on the 26th. I'm not gonna complain over that though lol.
Happy Planning everyone!!!

I had Grilled Mahi-mahi...DH had NY Strip...and my sister had wild Mushroom Lasagna.
The Mahi-mahi was DELISH, but I'm a fish person! Love seafood.
My DH's NY Strip was wonderful and cooked the way he likes it - Med.R.
My sister's lasagna was really interesting and delicious...it was some kind of wrapped lasagna...we all tasted it! It was really tasty.

There was a huge turtle right in the window looking at us! We asked for a seat by the aquarium, but there are only 4-tops by the aquarium...We had 6 people. We had a great view, though, and the turtle was visible the whole dinner - my kids really liked it.

Also, the beer was particularly good at Coral Reef if you're a beer drinker!
