For Tonys parade adr is it different to a regular adr as I couldnt see it separately on the list. Or do you just book a time to suit?

For what it's worth I loved Tony's. Raglan Road we did in 2018 and it was ok, once and done though for me. I've never done Homecomin so can't comment. I'm trying to think of places I'd pick as my top 3 oop restaurants...
I was over the moon with it ... someone posted on FB after I got mine so don't think there'd have been many left.

Yeah this is what I said to Mr Grump ... I think we're going to do T-Rex as he wants to do that for the kids, maybe Chef Arts and Tony's ... we've still got plenty of time to decide. ADR day is November,

Let me know if you think of any! X

I cant believe how HRH Club is hardly any extra, we have also booked Club again for next August for 3 nights and it only cost an extra 30! So 10 a night more than a regular room! 😊 I dont understand it as RPR club was quite a bit more? 🤔

That's fab, it's so much better isn't it. That just reminded me I want to request 2 rooms next to each other as well as we were backwards and forwards last time I think this time I may make up 2 over night bags, one for me and Caitlin and one for Chris and the boys so we avoid that this time.

It's mad isn't it ... not sure if it's a price glitch or what ... but either way I'm happy. I'm sure you are too and 3 nights ... so lucky! X

Your trip sounds amazing - 3 weeks, so jealous! We will actually overlap by a tiny bit - we are going end of April/ start of May - 4 nights in the Keys and 10 nights in POFQ, flying back on 10th May so I shall wave if I see you!

Re. ADRs - we are still toying with upgrading from QSDP, but some of the maybes on our list that may work for your family are Homecomin' (amazing chicken...), Garden Grill (by far my favourite character meal and the cinnamon bun skillet is to die for), Tony's for the parade package (have never been but seem some good reviews recently), Mama Melrose for the Fantasmic package (the steak and mac n cheese is amazing), and the new space restaurant sounds amazing and the new Toy Story BBQ restaurant also sounds good but not sure when that is due to be completed!

Happy planning!
Thank you, lovely to see you here again

Oh please do! We'll be doing the obligatory first morning in MK possibly on the 9th.

We did Chef Arts last year and really enjoyed it so that's a contender. We never got to try Garden Grill so I'll put that to Mr Grump thank you. We did Mama Melrose in October and we really didn't like the food sadly Tony's is another contender as we did it last year, really enjoyed the food and loved the parade package too.

Thank you! You too. You'll have to let me know if you decide to upgrade xx

Yeah it's different, it says parade package on it. Could you phone Disney and see if they can change it to a parade package? I did that with my Tusker House ROL one. I booked 8am breakfast then phoned to change it to the ROL but they could only do that at 8.20am. Check online first as there maybe some on there xx

Oh right Ill have to look out for the parade package. Im already over my adr allocation by 3 restaurants in October! 😂 I was thinking maybe for August next year, with a break out of the heat of the day would be useful? Abbys report of it was fab so Im thinking of booking it for then?

Plus, its 3 courses thats good value on a TS credit which includes the parade. 😆

Ahh that makes sense haha. Definitely look out for it. If it's not there initially though keep checking daily as I don't think it appeared for maybe a week or so after. The aircon will be much needed I think. It is fab, we really enjoyed it when we went we just wish we'd left enough time to get 3 courses our ADR was 12.20 and the parade was 2pm. We probably could have had time but we didn't want to rush.

It definitely is don't think there's many other restaurants that will give you 3 courses for 1 TS! Xx

** update **

Another little update. I've started editing my Vacation Planner but can't really add too much to it just yet as we need to wait for park hours and EMH and EEH to be released. I've been making a list of QS restaurants that we want to eat at:
  • ABC Commissary
  • Backlot Express
  • Woody's Lunchbox
  • Rosies All American Diner
  • Be Our Guest
  • Casey's Corner
  • Columbia Harbour House
  • Cosmic Rays
  • Golden Oak Post
  • Pecos Bills
  • Pinocchio Village Haus
  • Friars Nook
  • Sleepy Hollow
  • Flame Tree BBQ
  • Harambe Market
  • Restaurantasaurous
  • Yak & Yeti
  • Katsura Grill
  • Catina De San Angel
  • Les Halles
  • Liberty Inn
  • Lotus Blossom
  • Sommerfest
  • Sunshine Seasons
  • Yorkshire Fish & Chips
  • Tangerine Cafe
  • Blaze
  • Wolfgang Puck Express
  • Polite Pig
  • Cookes Of Dublin
  • Earl Of Sandwich
  • Daily Poutine
  • Aristo Crepes
  • Chicken Guy
  • D-Luxe Burger

Some of these we would like to just use snack credits for, like the waffles in Sleepy Hollow. I haven't started compiling a list of snacks just yet either.

We have decided to do 2 TS meals that we will pay OOP for. I think we've definitely decided on T-REX as we think the kids would love this, plus as we have a Landry's card we don't need to book, we can just turn up on the day The second choice is proving much more difficult and may end up turning into 2 TS meals but we shall see x

To be fair I just took them all from the Disney website ... but we have got 19 nights (well 18 nights after our night at Hard Rock) so hopefully we'll get to try at least all of them Xx

** update **

Update 3

We've toyed with the idea of booking a night at Clearwater. I wanted to watch the sunset and have a total chill out day not having to worry about parking and also driving back the same day.

Being a family of 5 we struggled with finding accommodation that wasn't a fortune ... we were looking upwards of 350 for one night and I just can't justify that ... even Hard Rock Club level with 5 express passes over 2 days is cheaper than that ... so we've settled on ...

Residence Inn by Marriott



We've got a 1 bedroomed apartment, which includes a small kitchen, for 220 which also includes breakfast ... total bargain if you ask me. It has a view over Clearwater Bay so not the Gulf side that I wanted. But for the price I'm happy to compromise on that and we'll head to Pier 60 to view the sunset instead

It has a pool so we can go between the pool and beach. Closer to the time I will also book the Sea Screamer.



We're still debating on which restaurants to eat at. We've confirmed



as we know the kids will love this one. I think we're still debating on Chef Arts and maybe another one. I'm going to sign up to Landry's again so we can get the free birthday reward and $25 join up reward and we'll split the bill 2 ways again to get $50 off
