So, it appears there is no category for Trip Reports on these forums for UOR. Only for Disney!
Anyhow, who knew that a pandemic would cause our family…the family that previously would hit Florida every 2-4 years at most, to head down not once, not twice, but THREE times! Trip in August was 3 days at UOR, 6 days at Disney with the fam. Trip in December was 9 days at Disney with just the wife. This time it’ll be 4 days at UOR (plus a surprise, limited-time bonus!) with the family again.
We leave in two days (Saturday). Or at least, some of us do. I’m driving down with my DW, DD17, and DS11. My DS23 and DDIL are flying down to join us on Sunday.
We’ve rented a 4-bedroom house with pool and hot tub, etc, for the length of our stay. It is in Davenport, so the drive is a bit annoying to get to the parks…but one of the goals of this trip was being as cheap as possible. (It could have been even CHEAPER had he known in August we planned to return in May, because we could have upgraded to a Seasonal Pass and had our entry to the parks paid for!)
First park day is Monday. Plan to arrive for RD and focus entirely on WWoHP. We expect to be done by mid-afternoon. We may or may not pop into Disney Springs in the evening.
Second park day, Tuesday, is our Universal Studios focus. The one main thing I want to make sure I hit that I missed out on last time? The Bourne Stuntacular. The rest of it, we did in August, so will be bonus!
Third park day, Wednesday, is our IOA focus. And, we are anxiously hoping to get a chance to ride Velocicoaster since it appears to be running daily now, with reasonable wait times for a new ride!
Fourth park day, back to WWoHP focus…plus anything else! This is also the day we have a reservation at Olivia’s at OKW for 6:45 pm. Fortunately, I have enough Disney Visa Rewards dollars to completely cover the cost of the meal!
Fifth day (Friday)? This is the bonus day. We plan to hit Disney Springs in the evening for some nighttime action before heading back home early the next morning. But the bonus for me is that my AP is still active for Disney, and PM is open. So, I’m heading into MK at RD to take a spin or two or three on PM! I’ll be back to the house before noon in time to get things packed into the van for the return home.
Anyhow, that’s the overview. Details will unfold with the trip. I’ll post photos and such as I can, but not quite real-time!
