So my family is having a GRAND vacation (I know they don’t call them that anymore) the week before Christmas December 18 through the 23rd. There will be my side of our family for the entire time (7 adults, ages 27-66 and 4 children, ages 7-16) and DH family will be there Wednesday evening to Saturday (4 adults, ages 38-68 and 2 children , 2 and 11) .
I am already having nightmares about trying to get that many fast pass plus but first I need to tackle our itinerary!
We will all have Park Hopper tickets, ranging anywhere from 3 to 5 days depending upon arrival date, with the plan to attend a park every day Tuesday through Saturday. We will take breaks anywhere from 3 to 4 hours a day and probably return to a different park. Or at least that is my plan. Depending upon what you guys say I also would like to do an evening night show at least once (so that means twice while we are there to cover both families). So here we go!!
Tuesday Dec 19
EMH 7a MK
BREAK 11-3 or 4
EPCOT EMH till 11:30 (CLP package)
Wednesday Dec 20
AK RD till 3:00
Thursday Dec 21 (MK closes early for party AND my DS turns 11)
EMH 7a MK till 1:00
DHS till close with Fantasmic
EMH 7a MK till 3:00
Chef Mickey ADR
Watch Fireworks from Top of the World Lounge
Friday Dec 22
EPCOT RD till 1:00
MK/DHS whichever we didn’t do the night before
Saturday Dec 23- my side of Fam leaves in the am
So it is really the Thursday, December 21 that is throwing me. DS has indicated that he would like a character meal for his birthday. One with the originals as he calls them. But we probably need one outside of the park since one set of the grandparents may not be purchasing park tickets. Also Does anyone know if you can still see the Christmas party fireworks at the usual outside of the park locations? Not sure if that’s even an option to watch from TOWL during a party evening.
Finally Which evening presentation is the must do between Fantasmic and the activities at the Magic Kingdom? It will be the first time At Disney for three out of the six kids if that makes a difference.
