DD7 and I are going for Mommy/me trip May 26-June 2. We are driving down from Georgia so will have a car at our disposal but I’m not super interested in driving unless it will save significant time or walking distance. Staying at Pop Century and hoping to get a room request close to bus stop. Tentative plans below. Any circumstances under which we’d be better off driving than taking bus?
Sunday 4:30 dinner at 1900 Park Fare. Assuming driving and valet is best since no resort to resort buses? But if there’s enough time after check in maybe she would get a kick out of monorail to Grand Floridian after bus to MK?
Monday Early Morning Magic at DHS (aim to be there by 6:45), afternoon break at Pop/pool, back to DHS for evening
Tuesday PPO breakfast at MK, afternoon break at Pop/pool, back to MK for evening, staying through fireworks, can close the park and linger for shopping if up to it due to rest day next day.
Wednesday rest/pool day but character breakfast at Ohana at 10. Best transport to Poly?
Thursday PPO breakfast at MK, mid day hop to AK (hoping bus ride will serve as break but we have relaxed touring plan at MK that morning). Leaving AK around 8:15-8:30 pm (before park close/Rivers of Light ends)
Friday PPO breakfast at Epcot garden grill, mid day break at Boardwalk, afternoon/evening back in Epcot (unsure about Illuminations)
Saturday extra magic hour 8 am open at AK, mid day hop to MK, staying through fireworks and closing the park. Last night
I appreciate all of your wisdom and input!
