I have been off of the forums for quite awhile now. Our last trip was Oct 2015 and so much seems new! I have been trying to read some posts to catch up on things. I know nothing about rivers of light, Pandora or the new Toy story land coming to HS. The only park I seem to have a grib on is MK!.
I have lots of questions and don’t know where to start but will try…
looking at going back to WDW in early October over a short break that my kids have from school.
My son (12 years old), wants to check out universal which we have never done before. So my preliminary idea is to do Universal first for 1.5 days staying onsite there and transferring to WDW
Would arrive late tues 10/2, do Universal all day wed 10/3, do more universal in the morning thurs 10/4 and then transfer to WDW, probably take an uber over.
We would be at WDW thurs 10/4 in the evening (no park, just hang out at hotel and have dinner), Fri 10/5 (MK during the day/MNSSHP in evening), Sat 10/6 (blizzard beach in morning/early afternoon and AK later afternoon-park close) and Sun 10/7 (HS). if we can get a late flight home (7pm or later) we would fly home Sun night o/w fly home Monday morning. I am still waiting for flight times to be realized by SW which is supposed to happen 3/8.
so here are my questions:
Am I allotting enough time at universal? We would have all day Wed and most of the morning/afternoon on Thurs? I would stay onsite at one of their hotels that offers the express pass. I know nothing about universal and admittedly need to start reading up about it.
I read that staying club level at Disney allows you to purchase 3 extra fp’s per day so having only a few days there, I think we would take advantage of this. I got a quote from my TA at MVT and can stay Poly club level for about $560 per night. so I might do it. i know that’s pricey but’s it about a 38% discount off rack rate and it’s only 3 nights so might be worth the splurge. It’s my fave hotel anyways. Getting 6 fp’s per day would let us get a lot done in a limited amount of time. Has anyone booked these extra fp’s yet through club level? can you overlap times or do they still have to be spaced out an hour?
thanks for any help and excited to be planning another Disney
