We decided a short trip next spring will be workable. Looking at 3 maybe 4 park days and staying at Wilderness Lodge. Kids will be 3.5 and 6.5.
We last went last fall stayed at Poly.
Will rent a double stroller from Kibgdom again.
Initial thought was we were going to really soak in MK. But I’m
Getting sidetracked by wanting to see everything!! Since we will be there… parkhoppers are an option. and since we will take afternoon breaks could work.
Also want to include time to enjoy this resort!
Wondering tips from those who did short trips—. What would your strategy be?
Day 1 MK either arriving that morning or night before…
Day 2 AK until 1 break dinner in world show case check out Food and Garden
Day 3 MK break and then maybe HS to see a show/ ride— when’s the Mickey ride coming out?? Daughters favorite was sci fi— so maybe eat there.
(Big if we do this) Day 4- Epcot and MK after break
After break we would have about 3/4 hours before heading to Hotel. So no late night fireworks in the parks. Will watch from lodge I’m sure.
We usually do 4-5 days. 3 days is tight, but if that’s all you can swing, then it’s still 3 days at Disney!
If the Hopper price isn’t worth it to you, then just pick Epcot or AK for the 3rd full day. Just keep up with all the changes/contruction going on at Epcot and be ok with how it might impact your trip. I am not up with the latest status of the Ratatouille ride coming to Epcot, but I recall reading at some point speculation that it could open in spring 2020.
Fun!!! We did a last minute (like, 3 days before we left last minute) trip with my 4 kids, my mom and myself last October. We did 3 parks days - an EMH night at EP (day 1), early morning AK/swim + hotel break + EMH at MK (day 2) and Epcot AM + HS PM (day 3). Flight home was mid-day on day 4 and we skipped the parks. It was a great trip. We knew our time was limited and just hit up our faves. Went it just considering it a bonus to be there at all and enjoyed the heck out of the trip!
We went last November 2018. Had 5 park days. Youngest was barely 2 at the time. Oldest was 5.
MK was our favorite. AK we got rained out. Did our FP and left. So need to explore there more.
I’d be fine with skipping HS.
Epcot I’d like to see for flower and garden and we did not get a good look at worldshowcase. We went the Sunday of food and wine race weekend. Rookie mistake!
Our last trip was amazing and just so easy, so we are excited to pop down. Spring is tough for work and school so thinking a shorter trip.
We have only ever done short trips and loved them!! It makes it easy not to run around trying to do everything! My daughter was 5 the first time and we only did a half day at AK, full day at MK, and pool day on departure day…it was great! We stayed at WL and she still talks about it!
