So, I’ve been working out our May 2020 trip plans (the one that is now the combined Senior trip for our son AND daughter).
First, I’ve narrowed down the accommodations to about 15 possibilities through homeaway. Most are 4 bedroom (so everyone has their own space), but a couple are 5 bedroom in the chance our oldest son and daughter-in-law can come down as well to join us for at least part of it.
Anyhow, the first day I picked because it is the cheapest day to start the tickets in May with Disney’s new pricing structure.
May 9 (Saturday) - Drive, stay in Chattanooga.
May 10 (Sunday, Mother’s day) - Drive, arrive at rental
May 11 (Monday) - Hollywood Studios (Rope Drop!)
May 12 (Tuesday) - Magic Kingdom
May 13 (Wednesday) - Epcot
May 14 (Thursday) - Animal Kingdom
May 15 (Friday) - Second park day (probably MK)
May 16 (Saturday) - Disney Springs/The VOID/Eat “expensive” meal
May 17 (Sunday) - Rest day and/or additional park day
May 18 (Monday) - UOR/IOA
May 19 (Tuesday) - UOR/IOA, Drive to Parents
May 20 (Wednesday) - Visit with Parents
May 21 (Thursday) - Drive to Knoxville
May 22 (Friday) - Home!
We’ll probably add in more more “expensive” meal. One my son will pick, and one my daughter will pick.
We’re trying to avoid the parks on the Saturday and Sunday because of crowds, but we’ll actually have extra ticket days so that we could go for at least part of a day if we WANT… But mostly it is about recovery from the 5 days at Disney before heading to 2 days of Universal.
