Would love for y’all’s expertise (yeah I said it), personal opinions and wild ideas about my initial plan below.
Trip: March 4-10, the 4th and 10th are travel days
Resort: AKL Jambo house, we couldn’t pass up the chance to stay in it empty! We’ll miss Jiko, but oh well (we did Boma for my 30th bday)
Us: Me, designated FOMOm and overthinking overplanner. DH, works 14 hour days, takes overnight call, the only reason we’re building in relaxation time. DS, 7, is starting to be too cool for everything. DD, 2, had a minnie themed bday party, obsessed with “Duwaf” and “AnnaElsa”, her rendition of “Weh it go” will make you cry. All of us are early risers (the kids by choice, DH and I by force)
Our last trip was right before COVID hit (we’re fairly certain DH got covid on the trip, testing was unreliable back then. Both kids got strep on the trip but he was strep negative), and it was totally epic. This will be less epic but still awesome, and we’re going to do more outside of the parks - scope out moderates with cool pools for future stays, catch some gators, etc.
Friday 3/5 –
Breakfast in room
At AK by 8 or 815 depending on early entry (personally I think it’ll start by then, opinions?)
Lunch at tiffins and finish up park
Pool or stay in park
Dinner at Sanaa
3/6 – resort/gatorland day
Drive to OKW, Breakfast at Olivia’s café, see pool
Mobile order SSR snack, see treehouse villas and pool
Disney springs – M&M store? Any other suggestions? Amphibious car? I am a little nervous about DS on a Saturday in terms of crowds but want to have something planned in case we need to kill an hour or two before dinner
Early Homecomin’ dinner
3/7 – Topo terrace breakfast (come on, res finder! do your thing!)
skyliner to CBR to see pool (do I need a mobile order if taking skyliner?)
Blizzard beach opens at 11
afternoon break in room if time
3 bridges for dinner at CS - unsure about this. We want to see the pool at CS, and the view looks great from 3 bridges, and that’s the only thing open here… thoughts? I mean if Toledo was open…or we could just mobile order a snack so that we could drive through, and get dinner elsewhere?
3/8 – DS & DH Legoland
DD & me - MK/Epcot depending on Remy timing. We’ll start at one and hop to the other, probably MK first just because of hours unless we want to RD Remy. Overall goals for the day: Ride FEA and Remy if open, eat epcot snacks, soak in atmosphere and calvacades at MK
Pool afternoon, take out dinner
3/9 – HS am, try for ROTR bg
Lunch at Scifi
Back to animal kingdom or stay at HS depending on desire, crowds
Sanaa dinner (I know it’s on here twice but it’s our kind of food and we’ve never been so)
Liners, what do you think? Would especially love y’all’s thoughts on the resort hopping choices. We saw Epcot (minus CBR) and MK resorts last time.
