I have become slightly obsessed with Touring Plans for our upcoming first ever Disney Trip! Finally we are a little over a month out and I am wondering if I need to tone down my expectations, or if these touring plans seem actually possible with our twin DDs (turning 8 yrs old while we are there)?! If any of you enjoy reviewing strangers touring plans and providing advice I would welcome any and all of your opinions
Our flight arrives at 12:45pm, I made a TP at HS starting at 3:30-4ish just in case we are excited and get there quickly… However, I am fully prepared that we might be tired from travelling and just get to the park in time for our F! dinner ADR. I am also thinking we might get there and be too tired to stay for F! and I am okay with that too. Just in case we have tons of energy and everything goes smooth I have plans in place to enjoy the night to the fullest!
Our twins girls are turning 8 years old today. This morning is definitely going to be the hardest one for us, and I am just hoping that the excitement of Disney World gets us up and out of the door in time for a pre-RD BOG ADR. We are all morning people and have no trouble getting up and out of the door normally. Do you think this plan is do-able or should I tone it down somehow?
If we need to tone it down I have some ideas:
1. Tour MK for only a couple of hours in the morning and then head back to the Poly to crash until dinner
2. Cancel 1900 ADR so when we do get tired we can go back and hang out at the Poly without having to get ready and leave again
3. Leave HS earlier in the evening the night before and not see F! That way we would be more rested for the first MK day
4.Cancel BOG ADR and skip 7DMT so we can at least sleep in one extra hour (although the girls are really excited to eat breakfast in the castle!)
5. Cancel H&V F! dinner package the night before and just leave the night open for either touring HS or staying at the Poly with no ADR commitment, will guarantee we are rested for first MK day
Any thoughts or opinions?
We have an Akershus ADR at 11am and really this is our only absolute commitment on our Epcot day. I have the TP if we get there early for morning EMH but I am fine with sleeping in and arriving just in time for our breakfast as well. If we make it to see Illuminations I would be surprised, but I have it on there just in case…I figure we will play this day by ear and see how it goes.
I picked FP+ in the evening figuring we can change them if needed to any rides we either missed the first day or want to do again. We can either hang out at the poly most of the afternoon/evening or we can head back to MK pretty early and do some more rides.
Of course our AK day is pretty much up in the air waiting to hear if ROL dinner packages or FP+ will be released. I tried to plan the most important rides/shows before lunch so we could leave at lunch-time if we are tired…
Our flight departs at 7pm. I made 2pm ADR at Kona Café figuring the DME will pick us up around 4pm so we will be back at the Poly and ready to go. I have FP+ scheduled at MK for rides that seem hard to get, figured we could change any of those FP+ to our favorite rides if we wanted too…Or if the family wants to spend the morning at HS (morning EMH) or Epcot or AK we will do that instead of MK.
