We are heading down to Orlando at the end of the month - doing 2 days at Disney (HS & MK) and 2 at Universal b/c my boys became Potterheads over quarantine last year. We are planning to surprise them the morning we leave because with the way things are going in 2020/2021, we could have to PIVOT at a moment’s notice and I don’t want to have 2 disappointed kiddos.
We have been to Disney a few times, with our last trip in August 2019 - right before SWGE opened (purposefully to avoid the crazy HS studios crowds with SWGE’s opening). We are now heading back down for the first time since then, and per the usual, I have been going back and forth about how to tackle our days. I have always used a TP, and have never regretted it.
Having said that, I feel completely uncertain now about what to do with the recent announcement of ROTR transitioning to standby 3 DAYS before our trip. I know my 9 year old is going to want to ride everything and my 6 y/o will probably want to ride most everything except TOT and RNRC.
So, here are my questions…
- Having never done anything in SWGE (and likely not being able to come back for a bit), is ROTR an absolute must-do to the point that we should RD that, and risk not being able to hit all the other headliners? - OR-
- Should we RD Slinky, then head over to TOT/RNRC and hit up Smuggler’s Run later in the day, potentially missing out on ROTR?
Truly appreciate all your insight/input!!
