I would love your opinion and advice on my Disney trip plans for the weekend.
Saturday morning we are going to wake up the kids at about 5 am (we are early risers) and surprise them with the trip. We are going to get a big Mickey balloon and put it in a wrapped box and let them open it. They will FREAK. (Yes I plan to video tape it.)
We will then drive straight from Birmingham to Orlando. It’s about an 8-9 hour drive. We just get so excited we can’t stop for the night anywhere.
Saturday night we are looking at going to The Boardwalk and taking a boat over to the Swan and Dolphin to have dinner at Garden Grove. It is a character meal and one of my readers sent me a $25 Restaurants.com gift certificate. I figured it would be a great place to try.
I have booked us a room at one of the hotels at Downtown Disney since our reservations don’t start until Sunday night and staying on property is $$.
I booked us a reservation at O’hanas for breakfast. We ate there in 2009 and LOVED it. We aren’t doing many sit down meals this trip, but this is one that I would love to do again.
After breakfast, we are going to resort hop. Which ones do you suggest visiting?
At 1 pm we are going to Downtown Disney to meet my readers friends at Earl of Sandwich. If you are going to be in the area, please let me know! I’d love to meet you.
My husband has his ride experience from 3-5 pm at the speedway. I figured he could take the van and drive over there. We will stay in the Downtown Disney area and play and shop.
When he returns, we will head over to Hollywood Studios to see the Osborne lights before they take them down. I would love to have dinner at Pizza Planet.
If you have any tips or advice for me, please let me know!
