How's this for Magic?
We arrive at The World on a Sunday. Monday will be our first day at the parks. Of course, we're heading to the Magic Kingdom. I will be trying to get a reservation at Cinderella's Royal Table for close to 8am. That means, we'll get to be in the park...before it opens. Mini Me and Sweet Pea will get to see the castle in person for the first time, with almost no one else around!
Our other reservations will be:
breakfast at Tusker House with Donald and friends at Animal Kingdom.
either breakfast or lunch at Akershus Royal Banquet Hall with the princesses in Epcot
either breakfast or lunch at Hollywood & Vine with Special Agent Oso and Disney Jr. friends
Using the dining plan credits for breakfast is not the most cost effective use. However, since it's "free" I'm not as concerned about getting every penny out of it. We feel like it's the best plan for us: we get to eat, the kids get to see the characters (without waiting in lots of lines), we won't be using up valuable park time at the restaurants because we'll be eating before the park opens and don't really need to plan around it or hope the kids don't crash before our dinner reservations.
Hubby and I are also planning a night out and are thinking of dinner and getting tickets to see Cirque du Soleil-La Nouba.
Less than 2 weeks to go until we can make our reservations!
