After much analysis (way WAY too much analysis, lol) I finally decided to book the after-fireworks dessert party for our next-to-last full day in January, because:
- We have never stayed to watch the fireworks on our prior trips and we really want to this time, but do NOT want to be smooshed in a sea of people
- I’m thinking that doing the food AFTER the fireworks will also ease the process of exiting the park and getting on a bus?? maybe? (the crowd will have thinned…?)
- By doing the food after the show, we won’t feel rushed through the food so that we can get to the viewing area.
- I considered one of the cruises, which sound amazing, but I believe that the dessert party will give us a better view
I already had a 5:45 Skipper Tree ADR for this same day (HEA is at 8:00/check in 7:00), but I really don’t want to eat a big dinner so close to the party (also… $$$). BUT I was looking forward to experiencing Skipper Tree. So I snagged a new ADR for Skipper Tree at 4:30, which I’m thinking will be a light meal (at least for me, I’ll probably just get an app salad and/or share a plate), giving us a rest break. We also have BOG at 11:55 so I don’t expect to be super hungry at 4:30 and also want to save room for both savory and sweet at the dessert party.
Does this plan sound reasonable? Part of me is getting concerned that we have too many ADRs overall, lol, but there are a lot of places I want to check out, even if we don’t all get a full entree at all of them!
