    I made the reservation the day free dining came out but wasnt sure if I was going to be able to get the time off from work or if I was going to be able to pay for it. After a lot of hesitation due to financial constraints I finally said the heck with it and paid for our trip the other day. The trip is from August 27 thru September 5th 2010. My travelling companions are the wife, my 14 year old son and 9 year old daughter.The kids have no idea, I told them a month ago that we were not going to be able to go this year and they were so disappointed. We are staying at Pop Century and upgraded to the regular dining plan. Our ADR's are at the following restaurants.

    1900 Park fare- breakfast
    Mama Melrose
    Teppen Edo
    Tony Town Square
    Ohana -dinner
    Chef Mickey-dinner
    50's prime time
    Liberty Tree
    Le Celier

    We will be driving down to WDW from NYC leaving on August 26th at approximately 5 am and stopping somewhere south of Savannah for the night. I hope to check in to Pop sometime before noon on the 27th and to be in a park by 130 pm.

    I will tell them a few days before that we are heading to Sarasota to see their Grandfather and Aunt and then see how long it takes them to figure out that we are heading to WDW. My daughter will be thrilled.

    What a great surprise! Sounds like a fantastic plan! Good for you, making that driving trip. I think I would go insane by SC or even by VA.

    You know what Johnie if I told my daughter we were going, she would drive me nuts between now and then. We have gone every summer since she was in my wife's belly and when I told her we werent going this year she said to me almost crying " Dad I have a reputation to uphold, all my friends know I go to Disney thats who I am".

    Hi Butterhead - we are heading to NY this coming Saturday and have never been before - we're so excited.

    We have plans to cycle through Central Park, we have tickets for Statue of Liberty and also Empire State Building already sorted.

    We're staying on 7th Avenue - do you have any recomendations of where to eat for 2 adults and a 11 year old?

    Thanks

    Sandra

    Let me know what kind of food you like and what neighborhood you are staying in and I will give you my recommendations. It has been very hot and muugy the last few weeks here in the city. I will say this, whatever day you plan on going to the Statue of Liberty get there early because it is quite the line to get on the ferry.

    We're staying at the Affinia Manhattan on 7th Avenue and we like all sorts of food, nothing too fancy.

    Thanks for the tip about the ferry - we're doing tht SoL on 26th July
