Starting off a placeholder for a whirlwind trip that I leave for tomorrow! Just as a refresher, I’m crazy, because I just got back from a week-long trip at WDW last Friday, and now I’m headed back.
DD25 is a consultant and currently has a client in Orlando - so she is there for work this week, and a few weeks ago, on a whim, she said “Mom! You should come down and spend a day at Epcot with me!” Initial reaction was “That’s crazy, I will have just gotten back”… which morphed (very quickly) into “heck yeah!”, which then morphed last weekend into “Why just Epcot… let’s hop and do everything you want to do!”
She’s already there, I fly out tomorrow night arriving really late (because I can’t take any more time off work right now) and we are staying at Art of Animation - a first for both of us. I recommend it frequently and am glad to get to stay there. Wanted Pop or AoA for skyliner access, and got a better rate at AoA in a Little Mermaid room.
Sat - our plan is to rope drop at HS, hop to EP at 2, hop to MK around 6, and stay through park close.
I think I have a plan worked out through a series of ILLs, Genie+, and a VQ for Guardians, that will allow us to do everything on her list… including (back to the TR title) - two galaxies (Galaxy’s Edge and Guardians of the Galaxy) and some top hits at MK.
Sunday neither of us fly out until late afternoon/evening, so we have a brunch booked at Trattoria Al Forno and then plan on taking a bus from Boardwalk to MK, hopping the monorail and doing some resort touring - she’s never been in any of the monorail resorts, so that should be a lot of fun.
I’m going to try to do somewhat live reporting - DD is going to be much more understanding of me being on my phone, but we will see if I can keep that up!
