DISNEY! DISNEY!

Planning Schedule? + Food Question!

Posted by   + Show Post

Does anyone know of any websites that have a planning service? Or calendar? I am leaving for WDW in September with my husband, Two daughters (4y 18m) and my grandparents. It's going to be hectic and I want/need a schedule.  I think it would benefit everyone if there was some sort of "Plan" in action, I want to be able to plan dinners ahead of time. Where/when we are eating. We have the Dining Plan (One QS Meal and one TS meal a day). Any Tips? 

Edit: also, the day we arrive we will not be atteneding any parks (so I plan, we all know plans change) however, we did purchase tickets for that day so that we can eat. Are there any quick Service meals outside of the parks? or do we have to go into the park? I would really like to save the ticket for that day for the day we do Animal Kingdom, ive read that its not a full day park, so since we are not doing Park Hopper Passes, we will be using two tickets in one day...

so, you didn't want to do the BBB in the Magic Kingdom? I guess I misunderstood, I was thinking you wanted to go tothe Magic Kingdom and go straight to the castle and get her all dolled up.

No, I wanted to go to DTD Because its all going to be hush hush, my ideal plan is Landing, heading to the hotel, eating lunch, unpacking, swimming, dinner, DTD.. sleep.. wake up head to BBB THAN tell her where we are, by going to MK!

see, my thought would have been to be quiet the first night, eat dinner go to bed early, then go to MK and have her done up at BBB in the castle first thing...

hey, sounds like a plan either way and I hope she has a blast...my kids know we are going and have enjoyed pulling the mickey heads off the wall...it's getting very close for us.

ticket days don't have anything to do with food, it's just per NIGHT. so if you're there going to the park 7 days but staying 6 nights, you just have 6 days of food. 

you definitely do need to have a plan of where you want to eat because reservations are full fast. i looked at the calendar (crowd and which had EMH) and plannned which park we would be in and the meal accordingly. if you have a hopper it's not as big of a deal, but we didn't so we had to do that. 

AK was definitely a full day for us! we would have even done two days there, especially with your kids age I think they will like the animals.. and the characters there are good. i wouldn't waste two tickets in a day for that. if your kids are at one park being that little chaces are they will be too tired to fully do another park that day.

quick service in down town disney was great! the hotels all have them too, i would check that out for sure.

 Just to make sure you know you can NOT use 2 tickets on the same day for 2 different parks.  If you want to go to 2 different parks on the same day, you need the hoppers. 

Also make sure you make ADR's for your character meals.  We love chef mickeys at the contemporary and Hollywood and vine at Hollywood studios.  We are going to try Tusker house at animal kingdom and Akershus in Epcot our next trip.

We might also do Crystal palace and Garden grill.  It depends on which dining plan we get.

YOU CANT use anotehr ticket for multiple parks...that is why you have the hopper option

Quoting reneawesley:

Google touring plans for Disneyland. There's one called touring mike or something similar that is very detailed. We had some family use it when they went.

Also, someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think you can use multiple tickets in a day.
