Definitely not the trip report kind of person, but wanted to post a thank you as so many of your comments contributed to making our recent trip wonderful. Truly, the plans worked amazingly well and we had a blast. There was not a single point in our trip where I felt like my TP was failing me or where I didn’t feel like I knew what to do thanks to all your wisdom. Crowds this time seemed lighter to me. This is our third trip in June/July in the last 4 years and this seemed the lowest. Parks certainly felt full but not crowded if that makes sense. I will add a few reactions on dining, attractions, tours etc. in case they are helpful to others.
Travel- we flew to WDW for the first time. Finding DME at MCO was by far the biggest challenge to our week. I had the directions from Disney with me. It still felt impossible to find in part because of airport staff who repeatedly gave all different and all wrong information when we stopped to ask “is this_____?” My MIL flew in after us and had the exact same experience. We both asked at least 3 airport staff so 6 total and none gave correct information. With all the travelers this impacts, they really could do SO much better both with signage and definitely with informed staff. I did the free trial of CLEAR based on a suggestion I saw here and it was exactly like having a fast pass for TSA
