Late trip Report- 3/3-3/8. I wanted to write this because the board and people were so helpful for our trip. We were grandparents, our daughter with girl 11 and boy 6. We stayed at the All Star Movies for 4 days and went to each park during the days. We then transferred over to Universal Royal Pacific for 2 days experiencing each park. We took the Magical Express from the airport and used Take Two/Quick Transportation to Universal. We did not do any advanced dining and only had QS plan.
We only went to one park at night and that was our arrival day and did MK. Very crowded that Sunday night but we had three FP’s and got to see the projections on the castle.
All Star Movies-we got the refurbished rooms we wanted and they were great. Staff everywhere was great and the pool area lifeguards were an extra eyes on the kids. Getting use to the meal plan was a little difficult but after a day we got it. One tip is, if you don’t want a meal you can substitute 3 snacks for it. Also the meal comes with any drink in the coolers on the plan. Food was good and some portions were huge.
Epcot- All parks we tried to leave resort at 7:45 to get there by 8 which put us very close to the front most days even though we did not do any hard rope drops. At Epcot, we were basically on the rope that day and walked easy to Soarin. We used FP’s the rest of the day. I will tell you that our 6 year old grandson did excellent, however he could not make it pass 2:30-3 most days. He said “grandpa my legs are tired”. So we headed back to the pool which he loved every day.
MK-back to park and had FP’s for all the top rides and did Big Thunder Man first. I can attest to after using our three FP’s, I was able to get others fairly easy. I even used the tip of grabbing one even at a later time and kept modifying it up.
HS- Arrived same time at park to find huge crowds all running to SDD. We decided to drop this ride and avoided it. It you want to get on in a reasonable time get there very early. Had FP’s for all the other top rides that day.Day did not end well with me since I had a kidney stone attack and was taken to hospital. The park people were very helpful and I went to Orlando Health which was brand new and excellent. While being dis-charged they told me Disney will pick up cost of cab back to resort. Sure enough, I just ran in and got voucher to give to driver AND my medication would be delivered Turner Drugs to my resort or any park I wanted! I choose AK and I just had to bring my prescriptions to first aid at AK and later that day on way out, I picked them up.
AK- Crowd here was also massive and all heading towards FOP, however we rope dropped Nav’i since we had FP’s for FOP later. DO NOT miss this ride, one of the best rides we were on.
Universal- Quick service transportation was excellent and texted me the night before of when and drivers name who was picking us up.
Royal Pacific-what a beautiful hotel and I have stayed here many times. Service is excellent, walk or water taxi to parks, had Express Passes to every ride, what more can I say.
Granddaughter was chosen for the wand ceremony in Harry Potter , I don’t think I have ever seen her smile that big and was a very special moment for us.
Well can’t think of any more, but please ask and again thanks for everyone making our trip great!
