In June of 2016, I made the decision that, with my two sons ages 6 and 4, it was time to take them to Disney. I am from a very tight knit family, so we invited the whole crew along. The long and short of the trip are as follows:
We have 12 members of the family going
Soon to be Sister In Law (24)
We will be at Disney for 5 nights beginning July 8th and departing July 13th. My parents, my siblings, and me have all been to Disney twice. These trips took place in 2004 and 2005 and, after reading the forums on this site and others, I am stunned at how we survived. We showed up after RD, had no reservations, did no pre-planning...we loved the trip, but in hindsight, I can see just how great we can truly make it with a little planning. We will be staying at the All-Star Movies for a myriad of reasons. We will be in the parks for four days, with no PH, just one park a day with a rest/resort/DS day. Here is the intinerary:
Saturday July 8th:
Arrive at AS Movies for check in at 7:00 a.m. We will be coming from our stay in Ormond Beach (we are from Michigan but have Blue/Green time share). We will have car rentals, but want to check in to make sure tix are activated etc. We will spend the day in Epcot (I plan on sharing my TP once it is put together.) We are on the Disney Dining Plan, and have one reservation at Via Napoli for the pizza. Leave mid day to check in to resort, return for Illuminations
Sunday July 9th:
RD DHS. All kids want to do SW JTA. We have a Hollywood and Vine Fantasmic! package. Dinner and Sci-Fi. ToT, TSMM, and JTA are musts along with B and B stage show.
Monday July 10th:
RD AK. This is the day I am stressed about. We currently have reservations at Tusker House and our Mickey Travels TA is looking for ROL Dining Package. Have no clue how we are going to do this day yet.
Tuesday July 11th:
We are winging it. Aside from a BBB reservation for niece, the whole day is up in the air. May even drive to Universal if kids aren't exahausted...
Wednesday July 12th:
BOG early ADR at MK. Hopefully take advantage of ADR for mine train and PP. Lunch at Cosmic Rays, dinner at CRT at 7:00.
Thursday July 13th:
10:45 at Chef Mickeys and headed home.
I know it is a bare bones sketch, but any feedback would be great. I will be adding details as the trip approaches.
