I dreamt my husband and I were on our upcoming trip in December 2020. It was our Epcot day and I was really excited. But when we got there, it was really run down and the rides were more like Carnival Rides. Then this guy kept asking us to help him find his missing white dog. We spent hours helping him. We finally found the dog inside a shop and I turned to my husband- Yay! Let’s finally ride rides!! So we hopped on a sad, little merry go round. As we were circling on the pathetic excuse for a ride, I realized it was already 8:00 and we wouldn’t get to go to World Showcase for snacks & drinks at all on our only Epcot Day. I woke up so sad!!
This is my second Disney Stress dream in the past week Both were related to time & (lack of) planning. I hadn’t planned on doing a full daily touring plan for this trip. My plan right now is to arrive well before park opening, ride the important rides first thing.(MMRR, FEA, BTMR, Splash, etc). Then, have a sit down lunch each day to relax. Late afternoon: ride what looks like reasonable lines according to the Lines app, go with the flow. Then in the evenings, hit the headliners we missed or what we want to ride again. End the day with a sit down dinner.
What’s your opinion- Get more specific with my plan or go with the flow? I am a hard core planner in life, but this trip is just my husband and me, so I thought maybe going with the flow could be nice.
For those that are doing TP’s right now and optimizing while in the park… do you just add the rides you want to ride along with ADRs that are set and continually optimize? Or do you add Breaks as well and have a specific set plan?
