I am reconsidering how to do our 1st day at MK which is also our 1st park day and the day we are doing MNSSHP.
things to consider: we arrive the day before (plane lands at 11am), we will do BB in the afternoon (had originally planned for relaxing day at hotel pool but WP refurb dates got switched and this is the last day BB will be open before refurb) and then relax at hotel in the evening. it’s me, DH, DS 9 and DD5 and we are staying at poly.
Do we stick with my original plan which was: go to MK in the morning, hope to arrive shortly after 9am opening ( I think pushing them to be there for RD is a bad idea since we will be up late that night at MNSSHP), tour from 9:15-11ish, have lunch and leave to go back to poly for a swim/break. we have to be back to MK a little before 4, b/c DD has BBB at 4:10, then stay through party (benefits would be short lines in the morning at MK, negatives: more travel time back and forth with the break,)
or do we just stay at the hotel in the morning, sleep in, I have OH brkfst ADR at 9:25am, swim in the early afternoon and go into MK around 2 and then stay through party (beneftis: sleeping in in the morning, kicking off trip with a character brkfst which would be fun negatives: longer lines in the afternoon, possibly fewer rides overall).
I know there is no “right” answer to this, but just wondering what you would do. I make FPP on 8/27 so I have lots of time to think about which way to do this.
