It always helps to have more eyes looking for issues, so I humbly submit my initial plan for the consideration of the TP gurus!
Right now I’m looking at:
Day 1 - MCO arrival at 10:35am. We weren’t planning a park day since we won’t arrive at WDW until after noon, but it just occurred to me that we could use our tickets from this week’s cancelled trip to go to a non-MK park if we want.
Day 2 - Disney Springs (Bibbidi Bobbidi for the 4 year-old, and lunch at Morimoto) then MVMCP (with dessert party)
Day 3 - HS (RD, with midday break after a late H&V Fantasmic lunch)
Day 4 - MK (noon - 6, it’s a party day) then maybe Epcot EMH with the 10 year-old
Day 5 - Epcot (10:00 or 11:00 - 6:30 dinner at Chefs de France… ). We have breakfast reservations for either Garden Grill at 9:05, or Cape May Cafe at 9:30, and I’m really undecided on which one to keep… I’m leaning toward GG though, because they have Chip & Dale and the fantastic cinnamon bake, even though I actually like Cape May’s breakfast a little better.
Day 6 - MK (pre-RD ADR at Crystal Palace until after the parade… it’s the day with the early close at 4:30pm) then HS with the 10 year-old
Day 7 - AK (pre-RD ADR at Tusker House, until we’re done or 5:45 dinner at Yak & Yeti)
Day 8 - Supercalifragilistic breakfast, then airport.
All days with CLs of 3/4, so I’m not too worried about very long standby lines. We have 5-day military hoppers, and then MVMCP for 11/26 so we can hop as needed. Currently we’re booked at BLT 11/26-12/2, but we have waitlist requests for Beach Club 11/25-11/28, and GF Villas 11/28-12/2.
Do you think I’ll be good to get FoP FPP at 60+6 (our WDW BLT reservation begins on day 2, so that’s when I planned on trying for my FPs)?
The idea that we could do a park on day 1 has me thinking (a dangerous pastime, I know)… what are the chances of getting FEA at 30 days? I’m thinking maybe we could do that for the first day, when we (as of right now, we have a waitlist request in but who knows if we’ll get it) will be staying off-property and that way we can use our main trip FPP for TT or Soarin since I know us well enough to know that we won’t be RDing anything on that day.
Any other thoughts?
