Ok, I think I’ve done all the planning I can do and risk overthinking it at this point.
4 of us this go-round. We last went when DD1 was 3 almost 4; she’s now 9. DD2 is 4 (and a half). Staying offsite, so we can cook a few meals here and there and cut our expenses at least somewhat. Arriving Saturday Feb 26th, first day in the parks Sunday the 27th. 5 park days, no hoppers. Skipping AK, MK 3 days, and Epcot and HS 1 day each. Got genie+ for the whole trip so I don’t have to buy at 12:01 each day.
Day 1 Sunday: (race day, but no, we’re not running) Topolinos at 8:20, then gondola to IG Epcot. Space 220 at 12:10, an afternoon break and return at main entrance, and 630 dinner at Coral Reef. Must-do’s are Remy, Frozen, Figment, Nemo, and Fireworks. I have no problem buying $ILL for either, but I’m assuming Remy will be sold out before I have opportunity, so in lieu of that, maybe rope-drop Frozen and then hit Remy after lunch on the way out?
Day 2 Monday: HS. Noon lunch at Sci-fi. Must-do’s are MMRR, SDD, and TSM. Would like to do star wars stuff, but don’t want to wait 90+ minutes, so assuming RotR will be a no-go. ToT for me and DD9. MFSR for all of us if we can get a slot for it, but lower priority than the other 4. Again, no problem splurging on $ILL, but expecting it will sell out for RotR and unless a primo slot is there for MMRR, we can do regular line.
Day 3 Tuesday MK: noon lunch at Skipper Canteen. Hoping for a good genie+ slot for JC before lunch. Rest after lunch, return around dinner til close with fireworks.
Trying to stick to Adventure/Frontier-side of the park, but will keep an eye out for PP/HM genie+ slots. If we can $ILL 7D not during fireworks, we grab it.
Wednesday rest day and Disney Springs. Lunch at Homecoming.
Day 4 Thursday MK: Tomorrowland/Fantasyland. Rope drop SM. Rest after lunch, 5:30 dinner at BoG, then stay til close. Maybe fireworks, or maybe short ride lines. Prioritize PP if we missed it Thursday. Keep an eye out for 7D if we missed it Tuesday.
Day 5 Friday MK: Anything we missed, anything we want to ride again; whole park. Same rest after lunch as before, but unsure of evening schedule vs packing to leave Saturday.
I’ve done a few flavors of days in the Planners, but with Headliner rides being luck of the draw for timeslots, I’m unsure how much more effort I should put in. There’s no real way for me to prioritize certain things without leaving out things that are more filler (that we do still want to do).
So what am I missing?
