This trip looks amazing!!! Have a wonderful time!!!


Wow @Tate, that looks fantastic. What a good planner you are. The only thing that crossed my mind is will people be exhausted after a morning in a water park? You will soon be able to say, 'This month’:grin:.

It is a busy day, I did have it differently but on FPP day a few things changed. This way Friday becomes a totally flexible day as the FPP I have booked are all repeats. My original plan had us using EMH mornings whenever possible, now I’m not using any, not sure how I feel about that.

I suppose it depends so much on whether your family ever change time zones. I think sometimes when my children were…well children, they just stayed on GMT and we did very early mornings, afternoon naps and quite early night.

We do the first week, but we are at Universal then

This all does look great. There may be a few where the times are tight but probably still do-able.

Don’t forget to make some time to enjoy the Beach Club & Boardwalk area, especially at night.


I’m. It worthy to evaluate but please report back on DC. I want to go there badly.

DC is the day I am most looking forward to.


Such a great trip you have planned!!

You’ll love Beach Club. The pool is awesome. The hotel is beautiful. My only complaints were that my room was a very long walk from the elevator and the shared buses with Yacht Club.

Impressive plans!! Looks like an awesome trip!


What would you recommend for my room request, I think a full balcony or terrace is most important for us.

We stayed standard. We think our room # may have been 5710. Do not stay there. It is way too far from the elevator for such a lengthy stay.

I cant get a map with room #s… I’d say request to be near an elevator. Also consider walking distance to Storm-a-long bay if you will spend a lot of time there. Also, if you’ll be doing laundry mid trip, the laundry machines over by the quiet pool (pool closest to epcot). there is no lifeguard there. laundry, pool and hot tub. it’s quite a walk at the end of a long day from there to Storm-A-long bay.

I will need a laundry afternoon, is there just one laundry room?

There is at least one large laundry room. It is truly large. I’d be surprised if it were ever at full capacity… there is also a smaller room around the corner - 2 washers and 2 dryers.

the large laundry room has the bathrooms on the backside (on the walkway from Epcot), then inside the gated section of that building is where the laundry is.

You’ll love the activity room at BC!! Well, the girls will :slight_smile:

This looks great but, I have to ask, won’t everyone be super exhausted half way through? You would know your family better and I’m not sure anyone’s age, but this would be exhausting for me as a relatively fit adult at 35.
Not trying to criticize, I’m known for trying to cram way to much in and having everyone beg for me to stop at some point and then I “lose” something because everyone needs a day of nothing.

Oh dear, apart from a couple of days I thought it did look relaxing as we only spend half the day in a park

I like how you have your trip planned, looks like a lot of fun!


Wed 10thApril – Waterpark and Animal Kingdom - what time does the waterpark open? This day seems like a tight schedule and not a lot of time to enjoy the waterpark.

Park opens at 10, we’ll leave at 1pm latest. I fully expect DH and I to want to leave after a couple of hours, if we don’t then we could skip Dino, Everest and Nemo and do them on Friday or later in the evening. It’s definitely our busiest day, the day after had been very relaxing but I switched it on FPP day to HS.
