Well, we're going again...

I'm excited to say that we're going to Disney World again in March.

"What," you say. "Didn't you just get back?"

Well, yes, young grasshopper. We did just get back. And, we're planning on going again in March to run in the inaugural Princess 5K Run. It's only a "long" weekend trip for four days, but it's enough to get us by until our next "big" trip at Christmas 2010.

So, this time we'll be down at the World from Wednesday, March 4, until Sunday, March 8. We're staying at the All-Star Movies Resort, a Disney-themed "value" hotel that includes large icons of 101 Dalmations, Toy Story, Fantasia, The Mighty Ducks, and Herbie: The Love Bug.

Unfortunately, we can't do the dining plan with the special deal we're getting on the room rates and ticket discounts, but we do have some initial plans in mind for our upcoming meals.

We're thinking the following table service meals on these days:

Wednesday night: 'Ohana (means "family" in Hawaiian) - a family-style restaurant at the Polynesian Resort. It specializes in meat skewers, tropical fruit, and other flavors of the island.

Thursday night: Tokyo Dining - This new sushi eatery at Epcot's World Showcase has an extensive sushi menu. The entire staff are women. The large picture windows overlook the World Showcase lagoon for specatular views of Illuminations: Reflections of Earth, the nightly fireworks and laser show.

Friday morning: 1900 Park Fare - The Supercalifragilistic Character Breakfast features Mary Poppins, Burt, giggly penguins, the Mad Hatter, Alice in Wonderland, and more friends at the Grand Floridian Resort. The buffet is extensive with everything from make-your-own omelettes to Mickey waffles and a sundae bar. There's also a turn-of-the-century calliope that hangs from the wall playing festive music to entertain guests.

Saturday night: Narcoosee's - This upscale dining room at the Grand Floridian overlooks the Seven Seas Lagoon (a manmade lake that the GF, Contemporary, Polynesian, Fort Wilderness, and Wilderness Lodge, all share the banks of). Specializing is rich seafood and meat entrees, the chef staff does everything from salmon fillets to filet mignons. The top-end wine list includes wines from around the world to complete a perfect anniversary meal.
