Now that I’ve been confronted with the reality of FPP booking even at 60 days, I’m beginning to realise that DHS/TSL has the potential to be a catastrophe on the day I’ve scheduled it — Saturday 30th, the day TSL opens.
But then I saw that @OBNurseNH has been on the Wild Africa Trek and it got me thinking.
Bearing in mind I’m going back to WDW next year — and staying at BC, with easy walking access to DHS, and with 60+4 day FPP possibilities — I’m considering removing DHS from my schedule altogether.
This would be the only way I could get the WAT into my schedule. (This assumes there’s availability, of course.)
Matt you know as well as any of us that you should go to toy story land and at least walk through. I’ll be there on the 26th hoping for a soft opening just to walk through (in my case scooter through). You have the opportunity to look back 20 years from now and say “I WAS THERE WHEN” If you have PH I would do both that day.
I’m going to go to DHS/TSL on my last morning, the 2nd July. I get FPP at 60+1 for that day. That should — surely? — get me at least TSMM, if not SDD. (I also get EMH for DHS that day, though I don’t think I’m willing to get up early enough to use it.) Crowd levels are predicted to be 8, as opposed to 10 for opening day.
The 30th June is now my Epcot day. Crowd levels are predicted to be 5.
This totally frees up the 1st, which is the day I’m staying at the CR. I’ve always been uncomfortable with the fact that I’m spending an unconscionable amount of money to stay there, yet I’d barely actually be in the building. Now I’m free to make the most of what it has to offer — including watching HEA from my balcony. And I can walk to MK if I want — I’ll make some FPPs, just in case.
I like your new plan. I liked your old one too. Changing plans as your ideas about what you want to do shifts is good! All Disney plans are great, in my opinion. As long as you have one, you’re golden!
