    Book your Dine with Shamu tickets as soon as they become available (I checked the site daily!!)

    The tables are allocated on a first booked first served basis, so the earlier you book the better chane you have of getting a pool side table..

    We're renting a villa and will eat offsite a lot. We want to book if we can...

    Chef Mickey's breakfast
    50s Prime Time
    Teppan Edo

    And somewhere for the last night - toss up between 1900 Park Fare and Cape May at the moment. I'd like to try Cape May but last trip we had our last night meal at 1900 Park Fare and it was awesome so kind of being drawn back that way. :D

    Oooh, sounds good! We booked Chef Mickeys and 50's Prime time as well. Tried to get Teppan Edo and Le Cellier but no luck! I'm always torn between staying on or off site. I don't like to drive in Orlando, too busy for me!! Sorry Tink!! But the appeal of having more room and some privacy is also good. Which do you prefer?

    Never done a villa before. Looking forward to the extra space. Two weeks in one room with a 7 year old boy would drive me insane I think. :mental: Be nice to have our own laundry facilities and our own pool too. I love driving around Orlando - it's part of the adventure for us. I rarely drink alcohol so it's not a big deal for me.

    :lol: thatwhy we love the villa holidays in Europe you get the extra room - kids can go to bed at a different time and we don't end up having to read in the bath or sat on the loo :lol:, also to makethe odd meal for yourself can help bring a little normality to the old digestive tract ;)

    Isn't it funny how vacation food can get old quick! Also it's not alcohol that makes it tricky for me to drive! I have trouble with motion. I don't even drive the thruway at home!

    Disney kid's menus get old for us straight away so we need to get to places where the boy can have proper food instead of hot dogs and chicken strips. :D

    We have loved having the space and freedom of a villa. I am sure you wont be disapointed Dawn. And Dine with Shamu was a great experience. We booked as soon as our date became available, That way you get a table at the front,as it's/or was on a first come basis.

    I'm sure the villa will be perfect for you Dawn. :yes: It does get old, really fast sharing one room with anyone!

    If you want any help with deciding where to eat, just put up your plans for meals and I'll jump right in! :D

    I do prefer to prepare our own meals from time to time, regardless of where we are vacationing. Keeps the beasties away, you know?

    I cannot wait to return to Ireland. We want to rent a cottage particularly so we can cook! Let me AT that beautiful butter, those mussels and oysters, and well you know... :D :D

    :wave: When are you going Tink? I envy you, our trip to Ireland and the UK has been put off again due to our last sons (besides Tyler) wedding in October, we will be visiting Bermuda instead!!! Could be worse, we've never been to Bermuda either! Do you have any details to share?

    We are hoping to go again this September.

    What sort of details? I'll be happy to share anything you'd like to know about Ireland (that I know, I mean :lol: )!

    I lived on Bermuda for a year or so, by the way. Ages ago, but still... I don't recall liking it too much and after visiting Florida thinking, I'd rather go to Florida than return to Bermuda! :lol:

    It's a small and expensive place.
