I will be making my ADRs in a few days, and so have been playing around with touring plans to try to plan our meals (timing, which park, etc.). We are only planning on 1 day in Epcot, and our Epcot day seems most difficult to plan, since it seems difficult to fit in all we want to do. We are traveling with our two kids, who will be 4 and 7. My original plan was to try to get reservations for Garden Grill at 8 am (pre-park opening), Biergarten for around 12:45, and Teppen Edo at around 6:30. I was planning to take a break and return to our hotel (Polynesian) after lunch, and return to Epcot by 5. Plan was to do as much of Future World as we could in the morning, and in the evening do maybe 1 or 2 Future World attractions we missed in the morning, but otherwise focus on World Showcase in the evening, doing Agent P in at least one or more pavilions. We also will definitely want to do the new Frozen ride, so I expect we’ll have a long wait for at least one ride because we won’t be able to get fast passes for all the hot ticket attractions.
So my questions:
–If we do lunch at Biergarten, we’re going to have to do a lot of walking to leave the park for our mid-day break. Would it be better to skip Biergarten at lunch, and avoid World Showcase until after our mid-day break? How long is the walk back to the monorail from World Showcase Germany? Is that going to break us with small kids in the midday heat?
–Since we have small kids, ideal for us is a combination of entertainment and food at our meals. With that in mind, if we skip our Biergarten lunch, should we do dinner at Biergarten, and skip Teppon Edo entirely?
–Should we just plan to stay in the park all day and take rests in the park? If we do that, what are your thoughts on good places to stay cool and rest with kids?
