We're going to Disney for my birthday this year. As anyone that has ever gone to Disney can tell you, it requires lots of 2 things: planning and luck.
When you reach the magical 180 days before your trip, you can make dining reservations. I read reviews and menus. I watched videos. I listened to podcasts. And I made my decision:
Ohana for my birthday dinner,
and Garden Grill for a breakfast.
Website: Nope, not yet.
Website: You're getting warmer...
Website: How about this Ohana dinner, for 3:50pm NOT on your birthday. and that's the best I can do.
Me: *grumbles* *books*
Website: Oh, I'm sorry, the Garden Grill is booked for breakfast for your ENTIRE trip. Better luck next year!
I pout. I sigh. And I get over it because something may open up later on.
Me: *tries to see if something has magically opened up*
Website: *is broken*
I go to work and put this out of my mind. At lunch, I decide to do a search of ALL the places that might be available for breakfast on my birthday
Website: How about Ohana?
me: *squeaks like a dog toy* *books it before I can think about it too hard*
Yes, I have a breakfast one day and then a dinner at the same place the next day. The great thing about reservations is that I can cancel them. In the end, I might want to cancel ALL of my reservations.
But I have 175 days to figure that out.
In other news: I'm terrified of making Fast Passes!
