Excitement Abounds

'Tis the season yet again, time to start planning my meal reservations for my upcoming trip to Walt Disney World to run the Wine and Dine Half Marathon. I couldn't be more excited. I have my flight books, I have registered for the Wine and Dine Half Marathon, and hotel plans are in the works, I have a few things stirring so we'll see what option my friend and I decide upon. HOWEVER, we are still allowed to make our dining reservations (which excites me).

On my list sit down dining for this trip is:

  • Be Our Guest  
    • OVER THE TOP EXCITED to go here
  • Chef Mickey's 
    • I want to do the dinner option
  • The Seas 
    • Classic and food is sooooo yummy
  • Tony's or Mama Melrose
    • I am tempted to go back to Tony's - for a while I was very unimpressed by Tony's but I heard from several different sources that they have dramatically improved their food
    • Mama Melrose is a classic and always good in my mind
  • Artist Point or Narcoossee's
    • I haven't been to either but have heard good things about them both
    • They are a two-fer in terms of the meal plan so that always adds into my decisions
    • I do like to try one two-fer every time I am there
  • Teppan Edo
    • yum. enough said.

Those are just my table service choices for now, we'll see how it all pans out in the next week or so. I'll keep you posted! I am excited to say the least. This trip is beginning to become real. 

Semi-related side note: I just downloaded and printed off the training plan I am hoping to use for the Wine and Dine! Whoop Whoop! I prefer the Hal Higdon ones or the ones written by Jeff Galloway on the runDisney site.

What is on your dining plans for when you are in Disney World?
Have you been to Artist Point or Narcoossee's? Which would you recommend?
What am I missing?

What training plans do you like to use when you are training?


  1. Do you get the strength running emails? I love his tips and stuff! Have fun. See you in a few weeks!

    1. No! What are they ? I should sign up!

  2. My mom used to plan out where we were going to eat every trip. I need to start doing that! Good idea!

    1. We plan ours out so that we don't have to wait in long lines or eat at strange times.

  3. One of the most exciting parts about a Disney trip! LOVE all of those places! Ohana dinner is always on my list, too. Coral Reef is my husband's favorite! :0)

    1. Ooooooooo Ohana! I always forget about that one!
