My trip is March 25-28, it’s a bonus from work (I won a performance award! eee), and I’m taking my stepdaughter, who is 25. We have 2-day parkhoppers, we both have anxiety issues in crowds, and she gets motion sick very easily due to one of the meds she takes (she doesn’t mind sitting out while I do some roller coasters).
I feel like this whole scenario is some sort of pop quiz where I need to design a plan to get through spring break crowds and cherrypick the best things to do with only 2 park days. I’m extremely grateful for this awesome trip, please don’t get me wrong… it’s just that none of my “fantasy planning” was ever for a lightning strike visit in level 8-10 crowds!
Oh and I won’t get the booking/ticket info until about 45 days out, so the most coveted fastpasses are unlikely to become mine (I mean… of course I’ll try).
Anyway, here are preliminary plans:
Sunday: arrive Beach Club around 1pm. Visit Disney Springs because DSD wants to shop. Then in the evening is a work reception.
Monday: Magic Kingdom, ropedrop. I will be happy if we hit: Haunted Mansion, Jungle Cruise, Big Thunder Mt RR (it was down my last 2 visits), 7 Dwarves, Buzz Lightyear thingy?, and Little Mermaid. We need to be back at Beach Club and probably shower & change for another work event in the evening. I’m trying to decide between trying to get a BOG dinner at 4 and then being too full to enjoy whatever food is at the reception (but DSD gets a pic with the Beast) or getting BOG lunch.
Tuesday: Animal Kingdom, ropedrop. I have already snagged a ROL dining package (Tiffins, lunch). I’m resigned to missing FoP this trip but I definitely want to walk around Pandora and get on the Navi river thingy, and I want to do the safari, EE, and FotLK. We’re likely to flee the park after lunch and then return for the evening. My thinking is that the animals are more active in the morning and Pandora should look cooler at the end of the day.
Wednesday: No park ticket this day but our flight home isn’t until 8pm. I got a reservation for the character breakfast with Ariel and Rapunzel, then I figure we’ll do stormalong bay and/or disney springs until we have to go.
No real question here I’m just open to comments from all you lovely smart people.
