This is our one-and-only trip (rescheduled from April 2020). We check in Saturday and I’d love feedback on our plans. I’m nervous now that crowds are much bigger than predicted but what are ya gonna do? I do have touring plans planned for each day. Wanting a mix of adventure and rides with slowing down and enjoying the ambience, etc.
Check in this Sat - 12 nights, 11 days with 7 park days (AK is the single day)
Sunday - Magic Kingdom (TP says 3/10) - braving the cold and rope dropping MK, planning on focusing on indoor rides (so rope dropping Space Mountain), taking a rest break and back for fireworks. Trying to decide if we need Genie+ on this day if we’re doing 2 MK days. My touring plans is doing all the indoor rides and saving outdoor for the next week’s MK day.
Monday - Animal Kingdom (TP says 5/10) - Arriving for 10:30 Tusker House brunch, then planning on standby everything (including FOP near end of day)
Tues - down day
Wed - Hollywood Studios (TP says 3/10) - ILL for Rise, not planning to do Genie+ as we’re mainly focusing on Galaxy’s Edge most of the day, doing droids, Oga’s, etc
Thur - Epcot (TP says 3/10) - More leisurely day checking out the front of the park rides so prob arriving around noon or so. No plans of Genie+
Fri - Epcot again (TP says 4/10) - rope dropping Frozen then Remy’s and hanging around the world for most of the day trying food and checking out the festival of the arts stuff.
Sat to Monday - Resort/Disney Springs Days
Tuesday - Magic Kingdom (closes at 4:30) TP says 5/10 - rope dropping Mine Train then standby everything else. Wasn’t planning on Genie+ because this past Tuesday was also an early close day and it had super low crowds so hoping for the same
Wednesday - Hollywood Studios (TP says 4/10) - I think we’ll do Genie+ this day (but debating on just adding it for my husband and son as they’re the thrill riders). We’d probably rope drop Slinky then my girls and I would watch shows and do less popular attractions while my son and husband do ToT and RR, etc. Stay for the evening show.
So to sum up, I’d do Genie+ on the first MK day (but is the super cold weather going to detract crowds?), ILL for Rise and then Genie+ on last HS day.
If you made it this far, kudos! I’d just love another set of eyes on my plans. This is my family’s first trip (and prob only one for a long time) so I know we can’t do everything but still hoping for a mix of fun and adventure mixed with leisure time and just enjoying the parks.
