First time visiting in forever, hows my itinerary look? LONG POST

Ok so I used to live in Kissimmee and went to WDW frequently. I moved back to NY in 2009 and I haven’t been back since. Now I’m heading back and I’m taking my boyfriend, who has never gone before. I feel pretty prepared, but you guys are all super experts, so I wanted to run our plans by you.

Wednesday 8/21:
Pretty much do whatever we want until Magic Express picks us up at 5:oopm - I’m thinking one last day at MK (cuz we gotta)
Take off at 8:30pm for depressing trip home

Did I miss anything worthwhile? We are not adventurous eaters (my boyfriend wants to have burgers just about every day) and we’re not spa/golf people. I love rides, so I want to go on everything possible and maybe meet a few characters. I’m kinda just hoping my plan looks at least somewhat feasible!

There is a direct bus from HS to AK. Is there a reason you are going to a resort?


Nope, I just didn’t realize there was a bus between the resorts!
Thanks so much!
This is the info I need apparently lol!

Will you Uber?

Maybe, or just bus to AK and then bus to the lodge
Whichever mode of transport moves us at the time

I would be at the bus stop at 7:00am. They let you into Main Street at 7:50 and you will be able to get through to the Beast castle at least, at that time.

Good idea! We’ll make sure to get up a bit earlier on our MK days since we have early reservations for both those days

Ok maybe a bit of an earlier start on our AK days too lol!
