I’m going to Disney for my 40th birthday and it’s a girls trip! Im so excited. It’s not as long as I would like but we are going for 5 nights. Here’s the plan so far:
Bull & Bear
Victoria & Alberts (or Monsieur Paul if I can’t get a VA res)
Full resort day
Highlights will be Wild Africa Trek, drinking around the world, monorail crawl on our departure day, renting daybeds and snorkeling at Discovery cove, resort day at Four Seasons, and of course the FOOD.
I would love to do all 4 parks but I’m not sure we will fit them in. Maybe we will figure out a way to swing in to MK quickly with a park hopper.
Thank you . I’ve been to Bull and Bear twice and I LOVE it. The food is so good and I feel like for the quality, experience and being used to Disney prices the bill wasn’t bad. Definitely get the fried chicken. The mashed potatoes were the best I’ve ever had. It’s such a special meal and I think they renovated the restaurant so I’m excited to see what has changed.
Yes I am hoping for an after hours at MK or HS one of our days. I’m not sure if we are going to do hoppers or not. If we do hoppers I would do HS in the morning before Epcot and MK the night of AK. The night of Discovery cove we are going to the boathouse and Disney springs. I want to keep this trip kind of relaxed but I always end up going nonstop. Haha
Discovery cove is running a deal for 15% off day beds. I know they are always running different deals on admission (30% right now, I’ve also seen free drink package and gift cards) but I never paid attention to day beds. 15% isn’t really enough to make me jump at it right now but has anyone noticed better deals than that popping up?
I’m going to buy my tickets through undercover tourist. Also, is Seaworld fun? I’m going back and forth on going to Seaworld (it’s a $30 upgrade to add it to our discovery cove ticket) our departure day or doing a monorail crawl. 2 completely different things lol.
Has anyone stayed at Saratoga Springs DVC? I cancelled my margaritaville res and I’m thinking I will stay on property. I’m using David’s DVC but the GF Villa I was trying to get sold out. The only other availability for my dates is Saratoga $546 and Old key west 420. (Two nights) Worth it? Or should I just pay more for a different property?
I would be wanting to use Disney transportation. That’s part of why I want to stay on property. We won’t have a car. I do like being close to DS. I’ve heard there are a lot of bus stops so I think I’m going to pass and just book a regular room instead of DVC.
I ended up booking Beach club. it makes the most sense for our park day at HS & Epcot. I’m excited to check out the pool mid day. I am going to try to get an Ohana res our first day so I get that vibe right away though. I’ve never gotten a reservation. If I can’t maybe I will do tambu but I want to use that table credit.
We stayed Poly our first stay -then split beach and wilderness our last trip. We just really loved how close Epcot was. And the cast members were so nice. Cape May breakfast was great. Pool bar has good pool side delivery— hot dogs for my kids. So yea we enjoyed it a lot!
