In january I was certain it’ll be a couple of years before we’ll be in WDW again, but turns out we are going after all, for a few nights on dec 15th-18th
I’m trying to be a bit more prepared than last december as it got a bit stressful
I currently have multiple hotel bookings and this is where I’d appreciate some opinions
We were at Poly for the first time on our previous trip, and it was amazing. It obviously has a ton of perks including one of the best locations on property, but one of the biggest things was the view and being able to see fireworks from our room. both of my kids absolutely loved this and they really don’t enjoy them in the park. This made all of our nights magical and I want to go back just because of this.
I have both regular and CL theme park view rooms booked and I’m trying to decide which one to keep. The cost difference wont kill us for 3 nights if CL is notably better, but I don’t want to pay extra if there is no major difference as there are fewer CL perks these days. The Tuvalu building (non-CL) seems more secluded and it’s right on the water, but there is the DVC construction going on right next to it. I don’t know if this will bother us as we are up at 6am due to jetlag any way. The buildings are nearly the same distance from the lobby and I can’t tell if one really has better views than the other. Any thoughts? which would you pick?
My idea as of now:
Dec 15th - late arrival - I know my kids will be asleep early because of jetlag so there is a small chance of me going to Epcot solo to catch Harmonious for the first time.
Dec 16th - This is Christmas Party day so MK closes early. Fine for us, because we are jetlagged and wont be in the park beyond 6pm - a good day to hit MK, right? No extra hour in the morning which we could easily utilize, but on the other hand a more quiet day, I imagine. Is Enchantment on at the regular time on MVMCP days?
Dec 17th - Based on previous trips, the second day is often stressfull and by the end of it we are very tired, so I want to try something different and take it easier. I’m thinking about hanging around Poly, going to the pool if it’s warm early in the day, and going to a park in the afternoon. Possibly Epcot.
Dec 18th - Park day from RD to 6pm
We might do just 3 parks this time and most likely skip AK. I need to figure out which park to do the afternoon half+ day at and which one for the longer day. Here are our must-do’s at each park:
spend a couple of hours at WS
spend an hour in GE
I plan on using G+ and ILL for GotG and RotR. I am thinking we can knock out Epcot in a shorter time, right?
