First things first, you may see I changed my name from what was essentially random letters to something that can be pronounced and actually includes my name.
Our travels began yesterday and I’m currently sitting in a plane at Gatwick airport, so let’s get this started!
I’m travelling with my wife, son (8) and daughter (11). We’ve been to WDW with the kids 3 times before - some you might recall our past adventures which have often been fast paced and relatively short. We travel to the US typically only once a year for a couple of weeks and mostly spend time with some family in Florida, so our WDW trips tend to be short.

This time, we have 3 full days, half a day on departure day and depending on various factors, a late late arrival day (for me while the others sleep off their jetlag). Staying at Poly TP view - I’ve requested 3rd floor in the Tuvalu building and eager to see what we end up with.
This is the most excited my kids have been about WDW - they’ve been talking about it constantly for the past month and my son has made lists on what everyone wants to do, watching videos, he also looked up WDW on Google earth. a nerd like his father. Even my wife who thinks WDW is often a bit “much” and
This is also the most worried I’ve been - during the past year I’ve had a number of issues with my leg and it keeps going back and forth between being ok and getting tired and hurting super fast. Long story short, I have no idea how long I can walk without pain - it might be fine, I might be limping during the first day and this is frustrating and there is very little I can do to prepare.
So, I’m trying to be cautiously optimistic and also consider the option that we might have to do shorter days or even do a full rest day on day 2 or 3. We are skipping AK this time so I’ve booked HS for both days for this reason.
Day 1 - MK
Day 2 - HS or rest/resort/etc
Day 3 - HS or rest
Day 4 - Epcot
I won’t bother listing my itinerary because I have a feeling it’ll flip over any time, but I will be using G+ and ILL to get the most important things checked out in our limited time.
