Readers of my thread in La Cava will know that I’ve booked a trip in March. I’ll be in the parks from 12-15th March inclusive. I haven’t made APRs yet, but I will have park hoppers.
For reasons explained in that thread, the trip may not take place. The purpose of this thread is to make the trip so fabulous that I take it any way.
I want to be fairly strict with budget, so no TS meals unless there’s a compelling reason. No up-charge events like dessert parties or After Hours.
Obviously Harmonious. I thought I’d never see it again, now I’ll have the chance for one (or two) (or three) last times. Zero interest in Enchantment, unless I do it in an interesting way, e.g. from the bottom of Main Street to see the projections there. Or from PM. Though I’m far more interested in projections than I am fireworks.
I’ve booked a Fantasmic! dining package — at Sci-Fi. I’ve never been to Sci-Fi, so I’m a little bit excited about that. And I’ve only seen F! once — and that was in August 2017. I can be argued into cancelling this reservation if people argue it’s bad value or unnecessary. (It’s for the first show: is there still more than one?)
I could be bullied into booking Caring for Giants, or Up Close with Rhinos, or both. I love animals.
I’m staying on-property so Early Entry is a possibility. I was planning on rope-dropping during my June trip because of the heat later in the day. Is EE necessary or desirable in March? I’m not ride obsessed, so if I don’t get to ride FOP at all I’m not that bothered, for example.
I do want to ride GOTG. Am I right that you basically have to choose whether to shoot for a BG or buy an ILL because both are available from 7am and if you miss one, you will have missed the other?
I’m kinda reluctant to buy Genie+. I could be argued into it.
Is there anyone I can suck up to who’ll get me a ride on Tron?
Diningwise, I’m thinking the various lounges and places like Ronto Roasters. Don’t want to spend a lot. Oh, festival booths. Can’t think of any TS restaurants I’m gagging to eat at. Historically I’ve liked to start the day with breakfast and I’m staying at Pop so can Skyline to various hotel breakfast options. But not if I’m rope-dropping, I guess.
It occurs to me that this will be my last visit during the 50th. Anything special I should try to include in that area?
Hit me with your ideas!
Oh, and if you’re going to be in the parks at the same time, let me know. We might be able to do a Liner meet!
