Merely two days ago, @JJT posted about February’s Hotwire deals. Somehow that led me down a rabbit hole of could I, should I, would I? One might ask, “Have I gone mad?” To which I’d respond, “I’m afraid so…entirely bonkers. But I’ll tell you a secret. All the best people are.” So here I am, two days later, and it is the morning of my first solo trip ever let alone to WDW.
This is a weekend of CSR (which I did get with @JJT’s Hotwire deal of $124/night with taxes for a holiday weekend) and FARTS (which I stole from the Disney Food Blog, credit where credit is due) otherwise known as the Festival of the Arts. This will be first time at this festival. In two days, I’ve managed to research what foods I’d like to try and I’ve got my printed list with booth locations on the ready.
Tonight, I begin with a late flight at 8:09pm, and I have booked one of my last trips on DME (the last time I used this service was 2013). I’ll see how it compares to my memory and during covid. I’ve got my KN95 masks on the ready for my first covid flight. Fingers crossed but the plane looked rather empty on the seat choice map so woohoo, very few other people seemed to have my same crazy idea!
Tomorrow will be my resort day so I that I may sleep in from my late arrival. I’m going to walk around Lago Dorado, attempt to brave the cold and ferocious Jaguar of the pool slide, have dinner at Three Bridges and a nightcap at Dahlia Lounge. Sunday and Monday will be Festival of the Arts and maybe a ride or two depending on how full my belly is. I fly home Monday at 5:20pm so my Monday will be 2-3 hours depending on when they let us in but I had to book the 2nd day because I cannot eat everything I want in one! I will attempt to rope drop both days and post what time the first bus came at CSR and when they opened the gates at Epcot.
