I have done a lot of preparation for this vacation. I have planned everything. I have researched into which rides to ride, which ones to skip, which ones to fast pass, which shows to see and when, where to eat, etc. We are eating on the Disney Dining plan, so per day we all get one snack item, one counter service meal(fast food) and one sit down table service meal. Here are some of the sites I used for my research,

My favorite site is the All Ears site. They have a mailing list which you can join. I joined. They send weekly updates, with tips, refurbishments, happenings etc.

Here is a rundown of our vacation. I have listed what parks we will be visiting, where we are eating, and what shows we are seeing, of course we will squeeze in as many rides, and character greetings while we are at these places.

Jan 23 - leave for Syracuse
Jan 24 - depart am - arrive Disney world noontime. Check in at the hotel. We are staying at the all star movies hotel. Head to magic Kingdom and ride whatever rides we can do.
Dinner at the Pinocchio Village Haus - See wishes Fireworks
Jan 25 - Magic Kingdom again today. Lunch at Pinocchio Village Haus, and an early dinner at the Whispering Winds cafe at the Wilderness lodge. See Spectro magic at 7pm and then head over to see the Electrical water pageant.
Jan 26 -Animal Kingdom - lunch at pizzafari, dinner at Wolf gang Pucks in downtown Disney. Shopping in down town Disney or Disney Quest
Jan 27 - MGM studios - lunch at the Sci-Fi diner, dinner at mama melrose - see the stars and motor cars parade and fanatasmic

Jan 29 - Animal Kingdom -Mickeys' jammin jungle parade, lunch at restaurantsaurus, dinner at Spoodles at the Boardwalk Inn, then off to Disney Quest
Jan 30 - Magic Kingdom - last day, lunch at Cosmic Ray's starlight Cafe, Dinner at Tony's town square, see the share a dream come true parade, then head over to fort wilderness for the campfire with Chip and Dale
Jan 31 - day of departure -pm - hang by the pool at the all star, eat at Wolfgang puck express, or All star movie restaurant, shop in down town Disney.

Of course, I am OK with changing things up a bit. We may not do 2 days at animal kingdom, we may check out another place we really liked again. We may do a park hopping day in case we missed a few things we really want to see. We will see. So far this is what we are doing. I am so excited.
