Planning a Disney Honeymoon, Part 2

When I last left you, Beth and I had been talking about where we would be eating and what dining plan we would be choosing. 

Monday marked our 180 days for reservation, and of course wedding also, so our travel agent contacted us on Friday to get our information. 

We decided on the Platinum Dining pack, this will give us access to a lot of events and resturants that we would have had to pay out of pocket on if we had stayed on the standard or Deluxe plan. 

So our first day at the resorts I will be doing the Exoctic Car Experince at the Disney speedway. I'm not a huge car person, but for a chance to drive an exotic car, I will take it. Lunch will be at Akershus and Cinderella's Royal Table for dinner, it will be 3 years since I proposed in CRT to the day, so why not celebrate it there? We will end the day on Seven Seas Lagoon with the Wishes Cruise. 

The next day we will be doing the Yuletide Fantasy Tour, which takes us to the different parks and resorts and tells us about how Disney decorates for Christmas. We have a reservation for Tony's for lunch and will spend the day in Magic Kingdom again, to end at Ohana for dinner and hopefully back to MK for Wishes. 

Tuesday we will be taking a small break from the Disney Resort and head over to Universal Resort to let Beth check out Transformers the ride and we both want to see the Harry Potter Diagon Alley expansion. We do have reservations for dinner at the California Grill, so we can have yet another view of Wishes. 

For New Years Eve, we plan on spending the Day in Magic Kingdom. We were there a few years ago and loved it. The plan is to get up and out the door for our Crystal Palace breakfast and the make our way around the park until our Be Our Guest reservations for a late lunch/ early dinner.  When we attended a few years back we had to get our spots at 6 pm on Main Street for the Midnight party, so this year we are opting for the Dessert Party at Tomorrowland Terrace. This will give us time to ride some more rides, and enjoy the parades then head up to the party and not feel cramped. 

We will start our new year off in Epcot, with a swimming with the dolphins tour at The Seas, with a lunch at Le Cellier Steakhouse. We love the candlelight precessional, so we will be doing the dinner package with this lunch so we can have good seats. After enjoying some more of the park we will head over to the Yaht Club to have supper at Yahtsman Steakhouse, oh yea a lot of steak in this day. All to be followed up by Epcot's' Illuminations. 

Friday is intended to be our Hollywood Studios day, but first, my favorite breakfast, Cape May Cafe (I can tast the Mickey Waffles with cool whip and chocolate chips). We don't have lunch plans in stone. We have a late lunch at the Brown Derby with Fantasmic! package, and looking at a dinner after the show at Momma Melrose. 

Our last full day in the parks on this leg will be a relaxing day, and mostly spent at Grand Floridain. We start the day with breakfast at 1900 Park Fare, followed by going to Downtown Disney/ Disney Springs for a few hours or Animal Kingdom to catch what ever we didn't get to ride there. A spa session will happen sometime before dinner at Victoria & Albert's. Neither one of us have been on a fancy dinner date so we decided to atleast try it this once. We end out our night with La Nouba by Cirque Du Soliel, and back to the Contemporary to pack up for the next voyage. 

Sunday we will grab breakfast at Chef Mickey's before we hope in the car to head down to Port Canaveral for our very first cruise, a Disnely Cruise to the Bahamas! After our 4 days on the boat, we will return back to Walt Disney World so that Jared and I can run the 10th Annual Goofy Challenge!

So what are your suggestions for us? Anything we should add to this once in a lifetime trip?
