This itinerary looks fabulous! I want to go! The only thing I would encourage you go consider, provided it fits in with your tastes, is consider the Rose & Crown for Illuminations. Get a PS for 7:40ish, and request a patio table (they'll say they don't do this, but we've asked twice and gotten it both times) and then watch Illuminations from here--it's like you're on the water! It's wonderful. Also, When you go to MGM, possibly look into the Fantasmic dinner package Sci-Fi is not an option; Hollywood & Vine, Mama Melrose's and Brown Derby only). That way you have a preferred seating and don't have to get in line two hours early! More time on RNR!!!
Also Flame Tree was open when we were there a month ago!
Have a great trip, take notes and give us a trip report!
I'm 20 myself and I'm big on touring as opposed to dining, so I'm not help with restaurants. I definitely think you could combine "Relax Day" with "Downtown disney day" because neither really require a full day. You'll will definitely want to leave a whole bunch of time at the end of the trip to hop between parks if your pass allows it to redo all the attractions you really loved. And I would say don't bother going over to check into BWV before you go to Epcot, just have the lugagge sent over and check in after you're all through at the park. Great itinerary and welcome to the boards!
Wow! Your itinerary sounds wonderful. I planned just as well as you did when I went with my fiance last May. Your planning will come to much use and you are going to have a wonderful time. The places you are going to eat sound wonderful. The only thing is that you may not be happy with San Angel, since you are paying a lot for food you could get at Taco Bell. I would suggest Le Cellier Steakhouse instead. The food is excellent and the atmosphere is very romantic.
Your plan looks great. The only thing that caught my attention was the morning at BB, then golf. I'm not sure the guys will be up for a game after all the sun and water slides! Have you allowed for some rest time before they have to run over to Osprey Ridge?
Sounds exciting for you otherwise! I know you can't wait!
abert15: yes, I had thought of changing San Angel with Le Cellier. It has gotten rave reviews. The only thing is...both the males in the party are half mexican and they kind of wanted to try it out. I have heard from many the atmosphere is great, the food is just ok.
Las17: HELP! I know what you mean about the water park/golf in one day. I just don't know what else to do. I would like at least a full day for each of the parks, a day to enjoy the resort, and I know as dumb as it may sound that Downtown Disney will take a day because we will be primarily at Disney Quest since the guys LOVE video games. I have a feeling we will be there several hours, otherwise I would push that out of the way and put Blizzard Beach in its place.
My two recommendations are for the counter service restaurants. First of, you really should try Ray's Cosmic Cantina in MK. It's really a lot of fun, it has a really good selection and where else can you get purple mayonnaise, blue ketchup or pink mustard!!!
Secondly, for a counter service restaurant at MGM, try the ABC Commissary. We've had a lot of luck there and it's better laid out than the Toy Story Pizza Planet. It's also not usually as crowded. (The story here is that the first time we went to the commissary, I ordered a chef's salad which needed to be made, so the guy at the counter gave us the rest of our food and said he would bring out my salad when it was ready. Much to my surprise, he brought out a piece of chocolate cake with it since we had to wait (a whole 5 minutes) for the salad.)
Other than that, I would relax, don't stress to much about planning (or at least be prepared to toss any plans you have out the window once you get there) and have lots of fun!!!
