So I am kicking myself for not looking at my plans before now, 66 days out, when my FPP date is at the end of the first week of school.
If anyone wants to make suggestions I would love to hear them. Two adults, 5 day PH, one person's first trip. Here are the details, trip is 10/31 (arrive night of 10/30) until noon on 11/4.
Plans so far:
10/31: AK for EMH until about noon, rest at hotel (Swan) then MNSSHP
11/1: late start EP day, may take a break at some point but plan on EP through Illuminations
11/2: pre-RD ADR at CP then MK until lunch, break then HS for F! and PM EMH
11/3: RD at HS, break, 5pm ADR at Ohana then MK for a couple of hours
11/4: EP for EMH then back to hotel around 11am
Here are the things I am having problems figuring out:
- how to plan my FPP on 11/1. I am sure it will be busy with F&W (which we want to check out)
- should I book the 11/2 FPP for HS to ensure TSMM and just hope for the best at RD at MK? (Could I even book FPP for during PM EMH?). Hesitant to hold off on TSMM for 11/3 in case my DSis says she has had enough HS after evening of 11/2. She told me that is the park she is the least excited about. I can see her saying let's go back to AK on Monday instead. But I guess if that happened we could do a HS RD on our last morning?
Can I say now that I am already missing the spontaneity the old FP system allowed?
Anyway, thanks for any and all thoughts that might help me figure out a great plan. I feel a lot of pressure wanting to make my DSis' first trip magical.
