    Hey everyone,

    Matt and Heather here,

    Well it has been almost 10yrs since I have been to WDW. But this May will be Heathers first trip to Disney. We are both very excited about going. We are here looking for suggestions, tips, secrets, and any other goodies we can get.

    Thank you

    Matt and Heather

    You are going to have a wonderful time. :yes: There will be so many new things for you to see and do you will be astonished! Heather is going to be overwhelmed! :yes: The first visit always does that.

    You'll notice some "old favorites" missing too, perhaps but there are so many new things!

    Where are you staying? Do you have any ADRs made for places to eat on WDW property? (ADR is the "new" term for Disney dining reservations). :yes:

    This is my first time staying on the property. We are staying at the NO Riverside. I have been several times in the past but always off resort.

    I took advantage of the buy 4 get 3 free plus the dining plan. We have booked 2 character diners. Chief Mickey and the one with Pooh and Friends as Piglet is Heather's Favourite Character.

    If you have the dining plan, you will want to book all your table service meals before you get there. The DDP tends to be very popular and the restaurants fill in fast.

    You'll have a great time at the character dinners! :yes:

    Welcome to Disney Secrets, Matt & Heather! You're going to have a magical holiday! POR (Port Orleans-Riverside) is one of the favourite moderate resorts of many of our members. :)

    Ooooooh! Dinner at Crystal Palace (CP) with Pooh and Friends is one of my favourite character meals. In addition to good character interaction, they actually have good food! :lol:

    As Tink noted, you'll need to make the rest of your TS (table service) ADRs quickly, as there are few walk-ups available these days. Even waiting until you arrive at WDW to make your ADRs leaves you few options.

    If you can make a general plan for the park(s) you will visit each day, it's much more efficient to plan your ADRs around the daily parks. Remember to include TS venues in the resorts surrounding each park (monorail, WL and Fort Wilderness resorts for MK, EPCOT resorts for EPCOT and DHS, AKL for AK) in addition to the TS venues located inside the parks. That way you'll spend less time en route between locations and more time enjoying yourselves! :)
