Hey all, this is my first post. I’ve just started planning a 2-week Disney World (and Harry Potter) trip to celebrate retiring from teaching for September 2022! Yes, 2022 is not a typo. This will be our second trip to WDW, our first was our honeymoon in July/August of 1996. We also made a trip to Disneyland about 10-15 years ago.
Just as the parks have changed some since 1996, so have we. We are both currently very plus sized and both have mobility and other issues. We plan on renting two ECVs for the duration of our trip and will probably get a DAS card as well. It’s a bit humbling to realize that we need these accommodations but we are thankful Disney is so inclusive.
You all have been so helpful with posts and question answering, I just want to say a HUGH thank you to everyone!
I will turn 55 in August of 2022 so September 2022 is pretty much the first time we could go. Plus, I am looking forward to being in Disney when school is in session! My DH is 2 years younger than me and his birthday will probably fall during our trip as well.
Since we will need accessible accommodations we are planning to use a travel agent that specializes in Disney to help us get our hotels. We are thinking about a split stay at POFQ and then a hotel on the monorail if we can afford it. We are also planning on traveling by train rather than by plane. Thanks to all of you and the TPs and the Unofficial Guide ( I knew I had the right book when they started talking confidence intervals) I have a very rough idea of how many days we should be looking at. Keep in mind we need to build in rest days so we can enjoy this.
Day 1: arrive by train, hotel - Universal Studio property
Day 2: Harry Potter @ both parks
Day 3: change to POFQ (or similar), rest day
Day 4: AK day 1 (we have never been here)
Day 5: AK day 2
Day 6: HS Star Wars!!!
Day 7: rest day
Day 8: HS day 2
Day 9: Epcot day 1, switch hotels
Day 10: rest day
Day 11: Epcot Day 2
Day 12: MK
Day 13: rest day, go back etc.
Day 14: leave
Of course, the days can and probably will shuffle a bit, but it’s a start.
If you made it this far, thanks for reading this, longer than I intended, post!
