FOOD, GLORIOUS FOOD – WHY “NO RESERVATIONS” IS SOMETIMES THE BEST OPTION

Is it worth the waiting for, 

if we live til eighty-four

All we ever do is wait (for tables). 

While making breakfast/lunch, and dinner reservations can seem like fun, it’s also a chore to plan your day around your meals. Hence, the Quick Service Option

Food, glorious food! Where do you find it? What is “Quick Service”? A Quick Service Meal is usually cafeteria or counter-style. Your order the food items you want, pay for your food, and sit down to enjoy your meal.  Most “quick service” restaurants do not take reservations – EXCEPTIONBE OUR GUEST

And my favorite so far – The Market at Ale and Compass

There are more popping up every day . Try them individually, because with so many to try combined would leads to–
In-di-gestion!

Thinking there’s not a crust or crumb to be found when you don’t have a reservation?  Having reservations about the “no reservation” option? Try it for at least twenty-four hours and see where your day takes you..

***1 QUICK SERVICE MEAL EQUALS THREE SNACK CREDITS. 
 

Hope is in the air and it feels good

Feeling good takes effort sometimes. You have to hope – think positive, and think of the glass half full as opposed to almost empty.  

Why do we feel good? Because our next Disney Trip is around the corner – 119 days around the corner to be exact.  While it may seem a little tedious, and even a little stressful, we count the days. 

Our dining reservations were made 61 days ago to the minute. Otherwise, we may have missed out. Early breakfast reservations were made in certain parks like Hollywood Studios in order to try and get an early shot at Toy Story World if we are unable to get in with a Fast Pass reservation. That was 61 days ago. 

In exactly 59 days to a tee, because we are staying at a Disney resort, we will try and get Fast Pass reservations. If we weren’t staying at a Disney resort, we would have to wait 79 days. 

These are the numbers, along with bills, wake up times, and birthdays,  that rule our lives.

I’m sure when he created Walt Disney World, Walt didn’t imagine having to make people plan like this. I’ve heard many people say  that it ruins their vacation to have to count the days like this. To have to wake up at a CERTAIN TIME to get to a ride by a CERTAIN TIME and have to eat at a CERTAIN TIME. 

For me, though, it’s a countdown. I like to plan. To arrange our schedule and know that we are all set. 

Because the magic of Disney is that there will always be a semi surprise around the corner. 

Have a question about the timing of things? Just ask. It can be a little confusing. And trust us, it will be worth it to follow through. 

Trust me. We figured this out 58 days ago on our last trip.
