I’ve been lurking on this forum for a few months now and have found you fine people to be a wealth of information and ideas. As we close in on our May trip (more specifically March FP dates), I wanted to throw my situation out there and see what you think.
Our upcoming trip will consist of DH and myself, DS4 (will be 5 soon after we get back), and 4 adults 65+. We will be staying on property. It will be a shorter trip than I see most people take - 2 days in parks and 1 to “relax” (possibly Disney Springs) before we head back. It will be the first trip for DS. DH and I haven’t been there since we were small children in the 80’s, so kind of like the first time for us as well.
Going through the unofficial guide, I had big ideas of things we could do, especially if we used the touring plans. However, the closer we get the more I wonder if we should even bother with a touring plan. DS does not know we’re planning this trip, but has told me on several occasions he does not want to ride rides until he’s at least 10 (great). I know he may change his mind when we get there, but is it going to wreck his time if it’s spent waiting in lines for rides he doesn’t want to do, even if we can do a rider switch? He’d just be standing in line at Disney. I don’t want him to be carted off by another member of our party to do something for lengths of time while we ride because I want to share his experience with him. However, I don’t want want to have spent fare just to walk around. The other adults have said they are letting me plan the trip, but I’m not sure if we’re going to the same parks each day, let alone if we’ll be going at the same time (rope drop) or if they’re going to stick with us (or our pace).
Has anyone experienced this? What’s the best way to go about it? We plan on MK one day and HS the second day.
Thank you all in advance!
