My Disney Dining Reservations

I call Disney Dining at least once a day to make dining reservations for clients so it is always fun when I am calling to make them for myself. I like to call and make reservations other than making them online. I like to talk to the cast members, they always have great opinions on their favorite restaurants and I always have a pleasant experience. I wanted to share with you my dining choices for our upcoming September trip. I would also like to explain how we use the dining plan. We always use the Deluxe Disney Dining plan and we do a character breakfast in the morning and then we do a signature restaurant or a dinner show at night for dinner. This way it is not too much food and we get to eat at all of our favorite places. I think this is the best way to use the deluxe dining plan so that you aren't spending your whole day in restaurants.  So take a look at my favorite places and let me know what you think! As you can see, we have some open places towards the end of the trip and I am open to hearing if anyone has any ideas on where we should try out. As it stands, we have already eaten at all of these places and I would like to try something new. As you can see, my beloved California Grill is not on there, it was originally scheduled to open in September but now I am hearing it will not open until November. :(
