I’ve renewed my subscription. Looks like y’all are stuck with me for another 2 years. We returned from a wonderful visit at POFQ for Halloween. We REALLY enjoyed this hotel. The Halloween party was good - 2018 party was way better though. I truly agree with what others have said - they’re overselling these parties now. This trip marked trip #5 in 5 years after a many year long hiatus.
We’re returning April 2021. We will fly in on Good Friday, and stay until the Friday after Easter. I currently have 2 reservations. Room only POFQ for the week ($2900 OUCH!) was my first booking. Since then, I convinced myself that Windsor Hills should be considered ($1165 yippee!). 1st floor condo appears to be 2nd building back from the pool. We will not likely rent a car while we are there since DH does not want to bother with driving. I’ve priced out the cheapest car rental and average Uber cost - they’re about break even if we only Uber one round trip per day.
Will I miss the bubble? Could I convince myself that for $1800 I can forego the bubble?
I’m aware it’s Spring Break and potentially crowded. I’ve been looking at the crowd predictions for Easter 2020 for comparison. Looks like Easter Saturday is most crowded - 10/10. We’re probably looking to balance park time and resort time on this trip, so maybe this is a good day to skip the parks? Is that Saturday typically more crowded than Easter Sunday?
I don’t plan on cooking, even though we have a full kitchen in the condo. I will likely prepare coffee in the morning and that is it. Maybe get milk and cereal. I’m trying to gather a list of breakfast options, that are either in the park, or close proximity to the parks. Please add to my list, or if something should be removed let me know and why. Restaurant and park location listed
Kona Cafe - MK
Plaza - MK PPO (best eggs benedict last year!)
Yak & Yeti Quick Service - AK (breakfast bowls, sandwiches, muffins)
Woody’s Lunchbox - HS
Ale & Compass - EP
Trattoria al Forno - EP (been there 1x delicious)
My daughter will be 10 this trip, and is already starting to phase out of characters. I’m not opposed to a few character meals, but our selections should focus more on food options and service. It doesn’t need to be white table cloth every meal, but it needs to be more substantial than a Starbucks muffin.
If you’ve read this far, thank you!! Please let me know your thoughts.
More to come on this I’m sure as I put together this trip.
