Hi yall, im finally headed back to the World after a long hiatus of 6 months! Hadnt planned on it, but my friend with a SW companion pass is a HUGE Hanson fan () and asked me about hotel deals so she could see them at Eat to the Beat. I was like “how many people?” She said, “Just me, unless you wanna join!”
I was packed within the hour. She’s not a disney person, but going together we can essentially cut lodging and transport expenses in half. Her companion pass pays my flight, my TA room pays her room. We do our own thing and meet up for a meal or pool time! Win win! AND a local friend i never get to see because she works in the school system, her husband is a doc and she has a 2 year old is going to be at YC that weekend for a conference, so we finally get to sort of fulfill our girls trip dream!
Now that you have the who and why…
When: arriving oct 27 around 2p, leaving 10a oct 30
Where: CBR preferred room
What: MNSSHP, GOTG, F&W, Le Cellier Eat to the Beat pkg, AK
So far my plans are:
Oct 27: uber from mco to cbr. ??? Right now i have a solo reservation at Jaleo for my bday dinner (its the 26th) and would love to grab some gideons and bday gifts for my nephews, so im thinking the springs. Hard to eat at the springs at not do homecomin lol
Oct 28: GOTG via VQ and ILL. F&W. Pics of the resort. Depending on VQ time, pool? Topolinos? Am hoping to get an Ohana dinner res. MNSSHP for parade, stage show, fireworks, splash, big thunder, poc, hm, that cake that looks like an ear of corn, monsters inc.
Oct 29: RD AK w my friend and her 2yo. I dont want to RD the morning after a party, but this is the only time i can hang out w her, so… FOP w rider swap or ILL depending on when we get there, navi, KS. VQ GOTG (Can i do that w a hopper?) and ILL. After those 3 rides, Split w friend, shes going wildlife express and ill do the best attraction in wdw, FFF. Food? Maharajah? EE? At some point i was going to do the podcast in dinoland that @OBNurseNH suggested.
Then we have 235 at Le Cellier for ETTB pkg. Only plan here is to ride gotg, see the early concert. Then perhaps a pool evening? Just depends on how tired i am.
Oct 30: uber to mco.
Questions for yall:
Suggestions on room requests? Neither of us are going to HS, so it makes sense to request something closer to the RR station. But all i could grab was a preferred room, which means ill need to walk across RR, right? Ive never stayed at CBR. Tips appreciated.
Anything new and shiny im overlooking? Ive been to space 220, fantasmic and round up rodeo arent going to be open… lounges, experiences, movies? Is sebastians open yet? Is it worth trying?
Do i need both epcot days? I could just do breakfast, pool, MNSSHP and save a ticket day, but wondering if ill regret not riding gotg as many times as possible (right now, 4 lol).
