This was a trip planned end of September, sort of last minute. I struggled with finding a good time in November(October was out of the question).
Our current itinerary is this:
Fly today - Get to Caribbean by 5. Kids can swim in the evening after a day of travel
Sunday - Skyliner into Epcot at 7:30. No Christmas parties at MK, no extended eveneing hours
Monday - Rest day
Tuesday - Magic Kingdom
The original plan was to do Monday at Epcot…but the TP crowd calendar is an 8 for Epcot on Monday, as opposed to a 7 on Sunday. Epcot has both extended hours and there is a party day at MK on Monday.
Will we still hit Veterans day crowds Sunday? We are not planning on doing the Food and Wine Festival, so will be away from that area. Have a 3 year old and a 6 year old. Would have no problem getting genie+, but I am tempted to just do Animal Kingdom if Epcot is going to be wall to wall. Its just their first time at Disney, and would like a more ride/character focused trip if possible.
If we are feeling really adventurous we may slip Animal Kingdom in on our rest day, but at this point, I don’t think its happening…
May try and write out a report once I get back. I love optimizing!
