    When to Eat Lunch?

    As a lot of you know by now, I'm going to DL on my honeymoon in Mid June. We're going to go to the Blue Bayou for lunch. We're planning on getting to the park at opening and riding the following list of rides. Below I have the rides ordered which fellow Mice Chatters have helped me organize in some structured plan of attack.
    Where at in the list do you think lunch would fit in and at what time in the day do you think I should make reservations in order to achieve this?

    I'm thinking about lunch at around 12:30 or 1:00
    and between #8 8. Ride BTMRR and #9 touring the castle.

    Disneyland park
    1 - Get Fast Pass for space mountain
    2 - Ride Peter Pan's Flight
    3 - Ride matterhorn bobsleds
    4. Ride Alice in Wonderland
    5. Get Fast Pass for Indy
    6. Ride Splash Mountain
    7. Ride POTC
    8. Ride BTMRR
    9. Sleeping Beauty's Castle Tour
    10. Ride Indy
    11. Ride Space
    (Ride anything else we want to / walk around)
    Go to DCA by 4:00
    at DCA -
    1. Get Fastpass Soarin
    2. Ride TOT
    3. Ride Screamin'
    4. Ride Toy Story Mania
    5. Ride Mul Madness
    6. Ride Soarin'

    Anyone have any objections / modifications to the plan?

    Well you could probably get a Space mountain fastpass and get in line for space mountain with a minimal wait depending what time you plan on arriving. That's usually what I do.

    Around midday and everywhere is busy. Either try to eat earlier or preferably later. If you are going to try for Blue Bayou I'd recommend a rezzie for whatever time you choose to eat.

    I say, don't plan your entire day to the "nth" minute. Have an idea of what you might want to do, but go with the flow! Eat when you're hungry. Ride what you want. Uber planning only leads to stressing you out more.

    Most of all have fun!

    Get some food when one of the rides you planned on riding during that particular time is temporarily closed.

    Make your reservations for lunch at a time that works for you and plan the rest of the day around that. Lunch at the Blue Bayou is a special thing. Go early, ask for a riverside table and wait for it. Then enjoy your lunch. I guarantee you'll have more fun relaxing in the fake night air and chatting with each other than you will running from ride to ride trying to keep to a schedule. You should still have plenty of time to hit most of the rides on the list.

    Just my thoughts.

    I hope you have a wonderful trip!

    Don't forget that you can make your reservations 60 days in advance... and I would highly suggest doing that... Blue Byou fills up very quickly... And like stated before show up to your reservation about 15 mins in advance and request a riverside table... It will be worth it... Everything else just go have fun... How long are staying at the resort...

    Re: When to Eat Lunch?

    I would make it for more like 11:30, 12 is more peak dining time. And it might be easier to get a riverside table at 11:30.

    Earlier is better. Later times can turn out even later due to some guests' not leaving within the expected time frame.

    With earlier, there ARE no prior guests.
    If you HAVE to eat there, go as soon as they open. Eat an earlier-than-usual breakfast or a snack-sized one.

    Also, skip Mulholland Madness, and go thru the single rider line for Screamin' three or four times. Yes, I know you're on your honeymoon, but some things are more important.
