…'cause we’re going to Disney World a lot earlier than previously planned!
I let my subscription expire in December 2018 because our trip was over and I needed to NOT focus on this forum, ha. I’ve missed keeping up with all of your trips and the latest news, but it’s a lot easier to not engage (i.e. waste time I don’t have) when I don’t have a subscription.
To make a long story short, due to covid and our expiring visas, we left our home in Russia on March 17th with two days’ notice, stayed in Istanbul for almost two months (almost going crazy due to super severe lockdown restrictions), and now are back in the States until Russia opens their borders and we can go home. We were originally planning on doing WDW again in January 2022 but since we’re here, we already have a trip planned to the Orlando area for a speaking engagement, WDW crowds are low now and will likely be insane in 2021 and 2022, and to be quite frank, we need a pick-me-up, we’ve decided to go to WDW in October if we are, indeed, still stuck in America. We told our girls on Sunday and they are very excited to have something to look forward to after almost 5 months of only looking at “how long before we can go home?”
So…please fill me in on what’s new in the last 18 months or so. I know RotR is open and is a big deal, supposedly the best ride in Florida. Would my girls, ages 6, 8, and 10 like it if they’ve never seen Star Wars? We plan on MMRR and every other ride in HS except Star Tours, which makes us sick. MK: No Peoplemover AND no train? Such a bummer. Is the Riverboat running? I think this is a yes. Epcot…no news as to when Remy’s ride will open, right? AK…I think nothing has changed here except we’ll get to ride KRR since we went in December last time.
Are there any other updates? I know about the shortened hours and no fireworks or parades or character meet and greets. We’ll be staying at the Wyndham Bonnet Creek timeshare side. Any suggestions for a couple of TS meals that are kid-friendly? I think last time we did all character meals or QS.
