So…I had reserved a stupid amount of table service or character meals including, but not limited to:
Be Our Guest Dinner
Sci-Fi Drive in
Hollywood and Vine
I started looking at and reading reviews of the Early Morning Magic at both TSL and Fantasyland and the Star Wars guided tour. Most of the reviews I’ve ready have been pretty good for all of them. I like the idea of not having to wait in a lot of lines and (hopefully) being able to enjoy the parks more (for me at least) and not worry about running to the next thing so we can wait in line for a short(er) amount of time than we would have 10 minutes from now.
So I’m contemplating canceling the majority of our reservations and doing all three special ticketed events/tour. The idea that my DSs6 (twins) and DH could walk around fantasyland and TSL with many many fewer people and that gives us a head start to the park that day was so appealing. When we went in Jan 2017, we were waiting at the front of AK (waaaaay before Pandora opened) and one of my sons pulled the stroller cover over him just to block out the sites of all the people standing around the stroller. I also witnessed him pulling his hat over his head to accomplish the same goal. We are all big Star Wars fans, so I think we’d really enjoy the guided tour, but because we are definitely going to go back to the hotel every day to take a break, the guided tour doesn’t leave us much time to do anything else in DHS.
We are calling this an early birthday trip for our twins. I’m thinking of keeping one table service meal to have as their birthday meal. But other than that, we’ll get groceries and go to counter service restaurants.
I’m hoping I will be more relaxed in the parks this go around. I felt like last time we went (my first time as an adult and as the planner) I was looking at my phone or the map the whole time and feeling like I was behind every step! Is this completely ridiculous?
