I am traveling to WDW over Xmas with 7 and 9 year old, us two parents… and my parents, including my Dad who is impatient, not excited about WDW and has arthritis in his back that limits standing, walking etc (but he refuses to get a scooter). So… with is backdrop, my basic plan (I think) is the following:
Early morning with kids until afternoon, then back to off site hotel for rest and swim. Then get reservations with dinner package that we can take my dad to, and hopefully he can participate and not have to wait in a lot of lines.
Night one: Jamboree thing at the frontierland
Night two: Candlelight processional
Night three: River of Dreams fireworks at AK
So my questions: 1. Am I crazy for thinking this approach might work? 2. I really don’t understand the reservations system. It seems impossible to get reservations anywhere even when you are doing a dinner/show package.
Any help, ideas, tips would be great. Trying to balance the different needs of the family is completely stressing me out.
