Can we all agree that the Touring Plans Reservation Finder is one of the most fabulous things ever!?! Many thanks to the staff members who have made this gem possible.
Due to the fabulousness that is TP's Reservation Finder, I just nabbed a December 30 4pm reservation at Sci-Fi Dine-In. Our original plan was to rope drop HS, stay until 1:30/2:00pm and then have a relaxed afternoon/evening in our hotel before braving MK to see the pre-New Year's fireworks. However, now that Disney is bringing back the Star Wars fireworks at 6:15pm in HS we are thinking about taking a mid-day break at the hotel (Contemporary) and coming back to HS for the fireworks. This would mean shortening our morning so we could build in enough travel time back and forth, therefore shifting some activities to the evening at HS post-fireworks. So here are my questions:
Is that a crazy idea? It will be crowd level 10 and we can't uber/lyft since we have a 5 and a 7 year old who legally must be in carseats, so I'm thinking the bus is our only option. I'm trying to weigh the pros and cons of lugging the kiddos back and forth for the ADR and fireworks.
Will a 4pm ADR allow us enough time to eat and decent spot to see the fireworks at 6:15? I'm thinking we will be cutting it close. I keep waiting for Disney to offer a dessert party for the fireworks, but so far nothing...they haven't even listed the fireworks show on My Disney Experience yet. (I'm going to be really bummed if this turns out to be fake news and the fireworks really aren't coming back on December 30!)
If we try to find an ADR after the firework show, what is the earliest you would book? 7:00pm?
Also, I want to thank this community for being so wonderful about answering questions! I honestly don't know how I would have planned anything without your advice and tips. A Touring Plan membership has been the best investment I've made for our trip! Thank you!!!!
