i like them, but you'll hear plenty of different opinions here. your adrs look very similar to what we are doing in feb. i think you will have a very good dining experience.

Looks good to me! Are you on the DDP? If not, just have an appetizer and salad or split an entree at Coral Reef and then do the same at LeChef's! 2 big meal problem solved!

You do realize that Brown Derby is two credits on the DP, right? Are you at WDW more nights than listed, or are you planning on paying for something Out of Pocket? If you don't have the DP credit, I would cancel the Chefs. I just worry about too much food on that day.

We can try!!!! I can send you my itinerary and see if it connects with anything you have planned....Are you going to any MouseFest meets? Moussefest, perhaps?

Never mind....I just re-looked at the dates. I'm around Tuesday morning before my plane leaves in the late afternoon.....

Yes, the Lunch at Brown Derby is a SPECIAL EVENT for my son's birthday, and we are paying out-of-pocket.

Cool!

Those two meals around Candlelight really concern me. I'd hate for you to go into the second not really hungry enough to get full benefit of it.

What about -try to make a Wednesday morning ADR at some place like the Kona Cafe, and then if you're hungry enough after Candlelight for Chef's, then do that and call when you get back to the room to cancel Kona. And if you're not hungry enough, stop by Chef's and cancel that.

I picked Wednesday since you have such a late dinner that night (relatively speaking)!

Looks good to me. We'll be there during that same time as well. Where are you staying? Are you going to any of the MouseFest events?

Wendi (and Tina, and anyone else who will be there Dec 14-20)

I am not planning on doing any Mousefest events. I am pretty much a WDW newbie. I have been there twice - once just after MK opened, before Epcot! and once in 2003 with my husband and our youngest son - DH was there on a conference, and we just tagged along, spent a couple of days, and I didn't really have to plan anything. This time is OUR FAMILY TRIP (minus my 20 year old son who doesn't live at home and is not as Disney crazy as the rest of us)

Here is our park itinerary (after many revisions), We are staying at Port Orleans Riverside

You're the Mom, make them!

Realistically, though, if they like traditional Christmas music at all, or like the story of Christmas at all, they should enjoy it just fine. Since you're going to the first show, it's not like you can have them see a little bit from the walkway to decide if they want to sit through it - but if they did skip it, and you came back gushing, or they saw part of it and liked it, they'd be really disappointed and then they'd be out of luck.

Just read through the thread in the DL forums about how popular it is there. I think the only reason that WDW doesn't have the issues is because it's not just one weekend (thank goodness!)

Looks like the only thing we overlap on is Wednesday 12/17 at Studios. We're having dinner at The Hollywood Brown Derby, so we won't see you there... it is one of our favorite restaurants, soooo good!

Oh, but we are eating at Boma on Friday 12/19 at 7:05 - so we could pass you on your way out! hehehe
