  1. How did it work out Marty? I have a similar situation developing for when I visit this summer
  2. Nice. Ready to share similar experiences in a few months.
  3. Gallery rather. I've done too much research and conflating restaurants. Maybe I need to go back an shovel some more to clear my head. Thanks
  4. I'm seeing a trend here... Sit upstairs at lunch, unless I like noise and padding Mickey's retirement fund. Thanks for the highlight on Trail's End v HDDR. The only problem with that logic is that my son loves any food delivered on the bone: Fried chicken, ribs, turkey legs, pork chops...keep your hands clear. Trail's End might be a treat at the end of the week when bub wants some ribs and Chef Dad doesn't want to cook. The Biergarten sounds good. I appreciate the resounding feedback from everyone on it. The kiddos like it when we eat at these type spots
  5. Thanks. I don't know what made me think it wasn't an ADR place. Maybe after reading the 400th review online my comprehension slipped. Good feedback on BOG. No one really mentions that in their reviews.
  6. After shoveling the drive for the fourth time today, I'm done with winter and ready to start thinking about my summer trip. My ADR window opens on Christmas Eve. I've been mulling around what I want to shoot for. Not a WDW rookie, but a FW rookie. Between my 3 other trips and studying the forum and other sites I've narrowed a list. Unfortunately a lot of reviews I've found are months or years old. Here's what I've been mulling around: -For sure we're hitting HDDR. -Also going to Trail's End (I know it's not a ADR joint). If you had to chose one meal would you choose breakfast,
  7. Well poop. I have gone to Hawaii for work a few times this year and wanted to bring them to a little Hawaii in FL. This is my 4th trip to WDW, but first at FW and first with my RV. The more and more I look through ADRs the more I think about taking the time to head back to the camper to make dinner before attacking back out into the parks instead of rushing all over to make reservations.
  8. Hello all, My ADR windows opens on Christmas Eve (early Christmas presents for me!). Last trip we did a ton of character dinners. Kids didn't get as much out of it as we'd hoped and the food didn't necessarily wow us on many of them. I've decided that for sure we're doing HDDR. We'd really hoped for Mickey's Backyard BBQ (RIP), but since that's not a choice I'm considering Spirit of Aloha. Pawing through the bowels of the site, most of the discussion about SOA is 4+ years old and the reviews are mixed. Has anyone hit SOA recently? Thanks
  9. Bummer, they are all slowing up on my phone. I'll tinker around when I get back to a computer. It was a fun weekend
  10. A small trip report from this weekend. I have traveled a lot this year for work. Also the kids' activities coupled with school means I barely see them anymore. So I decided to give Mom a quiet weekend alone and we loaded up the camper to head to Watkins Woolen Mill State Park and State Historic Site (that's a mouthful, huh?). We stopped at WWMSPSHS (gotta have a good acronym too right?) last year and toured the historic mill and the Watkins' home. They are incredibly preserved and the Missouri Dept of Natural Resources does a good job telling the history of the Watkins, the mill, and
  11. I am thoroughly impressed the amount of data-mining this community can aggregate from online and in person about FW. Now you need to find the hints about the Backyard BBQ coming back. It was one of my favorite memories with the kids the last time we were at WDW.
  12. That park looks amazing. The FHU isn't a necessity, especially since we'd be on FHU at FW for a week. The beach access looks great. Thanks! Looks like a great stopover. Based on what I plan for the day, I don't think ATL traffic later in the day are going to mesh with my vacation disposition. You had me at Sausage Store. That might be a bit further to drive, reference above ATL traffic comment, but I might be capable of the drive for a store dedicated to pork delicacies.
  13. Alright, my reservations are booked. Decided to check in on Sunday and check out on Saturday. Have some time to smell the flowers. I have plenty of time, but I can't help planning the trip down there. KS to FL is a big trip. Planning to stop near the KY/TN border off of I-24 on Day 1. Northern GA off I-75 on Day 2. Then cruise into Disney mid-day SUN. I have a few spots we'd like to stop along the way (Fort Donalson Natl Monument, Ocmulgee Natl Monument...kids love the NPS Jr Ranger Program). We're not opposed to staying in a Wal-Mart, Cabela's, etc on the way down, but does an
  14. Thanks for both responses. I know every where else I want to go, Sunday is usually a good time to arrive. Disney seems to be the exception on everything. Also, thanks for the suggestion for a travel counselor. I have a friend that's already locked me up in perpetuity for any Disney trips.
  15. I don't think I'd fit inside a 911 let alone would the roof support my 250 lbs.
