I’ve finished planning my family’s first WDW trip and started looking at 2019/2020 vacation plans. My wife is a huge Harry Potter fan and I’m thinking of surprising her with a weekend trip in Oct 2019 for our anniversary.
I made the mistake of booking WDW before I knew much about it, and as a result made a few mistakes. I’d like to be more prepared for UOR.
So my questions are:
How far in advance do I need to be planning this trip? Does UOR have anything comparable to Disney’s insane 180-day-in-advance ADR meal planning?
Are there specific things I’ll get locked out of if I wait too long, or upcoming changes I should be aware of before committing to a date?
Is there anything specific that you’d tell a UOR newbie before they book a trip, that might not be super obvious after doing the basic research?
Would likely fly down Friday night, spend Saturday and Sunday in the park, and then fly back late Sunday or Monday.
Any and all pointers welcome. Thanks!
