Hello- I was hoping some of you kind folks would be willing to give me some feedback on our TP for our 2 MK days.
Family is me, DH, DS10, DS 6. DH and I haven’t been to WDW in 20 years. Kids have never been (and are COMPLAINING about going! SMDH.) I think they’re nervous about the rides.
My biggest priority is to minimize walking and take it easy- have fun, stop and smell the roses, absorb the atmosphere. Also minimize wait times as much as possible- I don’t think my boys would tolerate waiting in lines. In other words, we will be happy to skip attractions to lessen stress / minimize waits.
Here are my questions-
I haven’t been since they started bag checks- it sounds like Security is a whole new thing. We’re staying at POR. What time do we want to arrive at the park in order to be on Main Street ready to roll at 8:45 / 9:00? How long does it take to go through Security? Anyone know what time we should shoot to be at the bus stop at POR?
The train around the park is closed. Is it still possible to watch HEA from the train station railing? Is that a good spot to aim for? Realistic? Because this is our first time, watching HEA + the projections is a priority. Any hints for how to do that? A dessert party is out- we’re doing the SW one at HS later in the week.
How do these plans look to you? Too much down time? Not enough? Do the wait times look realistic? I’ll admit that I’ve been reading the threads about the crowd levels and have been getting very nervous.
A couple of notes about the plans-
One day one, I’m trying to move the 7DMT FP up to the 11:30-ish time slot, which would then (hopefully) enable me to move the HM FP to right after lunch, so that we could try to grab a few more FP for whatever later in the day. No luck so far, but I’ll try in earnest when we get down to WDW.
You might notice that Space Mtn is missing- DH refuses to ride that one and I suspect my kids will freak out at the thought, so that is missing on purpose. I would love to ride, but can miss for the sake of the family.
I think that’s it! Please either reassure me that all looks good, or help me fix my monumental mistakes!
