I know a lot of you are saying...you're going to Disney World AGAIN? This is a pretty special trip for us since it is not only our 10th wedding anniversary, but also our first trip without our son.
So, I'm planning things for us that we can't do with him or that he just wouldn't really enjoy. We are heading down in Febuary 2012 so this gives me plenty of time to make some great reservations.
I'd like to plan a special meal for each day that we are there and preferably something that we wouldn't normally do with Kian. We get there too late for a dinner on our first night...so airport McDonald's it is!
On our fourth night there we have a late reservation at California Grill in the Contemporary Resort. I choose a 9pm Reservation so we will be there during the Wishes firework show at the Magic Kingdom which I hear is a great view.
My wife is really excited to try the Afternoon Tea at the Grand Floridian Resort, so I've made a reservation for the afternoon before we fly back home. This should give us a relaxing afternoon and nice way to end the trip before heading back to the airport.
Our entire 10 course meal will be created by Head Chef Scott Hunnel uniquely for us and even comes with a printed version of our menu for each of us to take home. The meal is said to last almost FOUR HOURS and ends with coffee and fancy dessert. Now to just decide if we want the wine pairings as well. There's a great write-up about it over at The Disney Food Blog.
One of the things we have yet to do on our Disney Trips is take one of the tours available at the parks. We'd really like to go, but not only would our son not really enjoy them at his age...but some even have an minimum age of 16. So this is our chance! Now to figure out which to do.
Keys to the Kingdom Tour
I've heard a lot of good things about this tour and the WDW Today crew seem to really like it. It would be interesting to get some behind the scenes info on the Magic Kingdom, but I'd most love to actually see the Utilidors (yes they are real)! I am a bit hesitant to spend 4.5 hours doing this on such a short trip though.
Wild Africa Trek
So we have lots of great things planned but are totally open to new things or changes if any ideas are out there. Suggestions?
