We decided a little late into the game to elope and head to WDW the next day. I’ve done hours of research over the last three weeks and am stuck in creating my touring plan. Part of my issue is that Pandora opens only nine days prior to our arrival, so I’m really not sure what to expect for our day at Animal Kingdom.
So here is a run down about us, we are young mid-twenties, Disneyland veterans. We traditionally visit twice a year or so on average. Neither of us have been to WDW in the last 20+ years. We are both huge foodies and interested in Epcot and touring the World Showcase. We purchased 7 day parkhopper tickets with the regular dining plan and are staying at Pop Century.
Here is a draft of my plan:
June 5 - Epcot, dinner at Biergarten, FP+ Frozen or Soarin, Turtle Talk, then either Spaceship Earth or Mission Space.
June 6 - MK, lunch at Crystal Palace, FP+ 7 Dwarfs, Big Thunder, Peter Pan or Splash Mountain
June 7 - AK- lunch at Yak and Yeti, without AVATAR FP+ Kilimanjaro Safaris, Kali River Rapids, Expedition Everest, with AVATAR FP+ Flight of Passage and/or Na’vi River Journey
June 8 - HS - lunch at 50s Prime Time Cafe - I’ve heard this is a half day park, but we can’t seem to make our plan into a half day… FP+ Toy Story Midway (only because we want to ride this twice). We also want to ride RnR and the Great Movie Ride. I’m not sure about whether to get fastpasses for any tier 2 FP+ because the only two we want to participate in are Indiana Jones Stunt Show and maybe Muppetvision 3D
June 9 - Epcot - Do we need two days at Epcot? Everyone says only one, but we feel like Epcot will be our most enjoyed resort. We have dining reservations for breakfast at Garden Grill and dinner at Coral Reef. I love seafood, but I’ve read maybe Coral Reef isn’t our best option. Thoughts?
June 10 - MK - lunch at Be Our Guest - Repeat day one plus missed attractions
June 11 - We have 7 days of tickets, so I made dining reservations for lunch and dinner at the Chefs De France restaurant, but I’m thinking maybe we should rearrange and do a day at Universal Studios or Island of Adventure. We have been to Universal Hollywood (prior to HP Wizarding World opening) and were not impressed with the simulation rides like Transformers.
Thank you all so much for your help, only three weeks until we book our FastPasses and less than 90 days until our elopment!!
