So, after 15+ years of not having visited Disney, I’ve gone once a year for the last 2 years (4-5 days at Disney, 1-2 at Universal each time.) It’s a lot of fun, and I’m thinking about going back in May.
I’m hoping that you can help me with suggestions for something new to do. Both the 2016 and 2017 trips were similar in that we did 1 day at each park (in 2017, we skipped MK and did a day at Blizzard Beach instead, since the vacation party is 2 adults in their early 30s and 2 in their early 60s. The water park day was fantastic.)
It’s fun, but my dad in particular wants to use vacation as a chance to do something new that we haven’t done before, not just re-ride all the rides. In 2016, we did the Wanyama Safari at AKL; in 2017, we saw the Cirque du Soleil show at Disney Springs. What else could we do? I know the Cirque show was coming to an end; has Disney replaced it with something else? Has anyone here done the Wild Africa Trek or the Evening Safari Experience at Animal Kingdom? Has anyone gone parasailing at the Contemporary?
(Also, would anyone recommend pulling a day off the itinerary to see something else in the area? I can’t ride roller coasters, so I’m thinking Busch Gardens would be a waste; I’m also considering whether or not it would be worth spending a day to drive down to the Kennedy Space Center, possibly in lieu of going to HS, since last year HS was only a half-day park and Star Tours is really the only thing I’d miss.)
I’m super-open to suggestions, so I’m hoping someone else has done something they’ve really enjoyed and would like to recommend.
