I am likely going to need to be in Tampa for a meeting October 6 & 7. I’m considering taking a very brief and my first solo trip while I’m there.
There are no hotels available the weekend before because of the anniversary, so my working thought is to leave work a bit early on Friday and taking the last flight available home on Saturday. I’m thinking about using this time to stay in one of my wish list hotels - either the Contemporary or Animal Kingdom Lodge.
A few questions -
Any recommendations on transportation from Tampa to Orlando? My office is in Temple Terrace, so on the east side of Tampa, so I won’t be at the airport. (I could possibly rent a car, but last time I was in Tampa for work, I barely used it so I hate to incur the expense.)
Can I take the Magical Express out of Orlando but not use it on the way in? I’m thinking I would fly into Tampa and out of Orlando.
It’s been surprisingly hard to figure out what my own personal perfect time at Disney would be since I’ve always gone with my kids or others and had to keep their interests in mind. My favorite rides are HM, FOP, and ROTR so one thing I’m thinking is doing HS that Friday. If I do a park pass for HS, and get a boarding group at 7 am, will they still let me on hours later? Or would I wait until the 1 pm drop? (Boo Bash is at MK that night and I don’t have a ticket so no point in going there.)
