Got some time to kill and since I love to read about others plans I figured I jot mine down . Feel free to critique, add suggestions, etc…
5/10 arriving @ MCO from Boston @ 3:15pm (3 of us DD13, DW, and I.) First time staying on property. Staying at SSR. Was opting for PORR but got same price for SSR via point renting so I figured the kitchenette would be helpful. Taking DME to the resort. Figuring about a 5:00pm arrival. After check-In I will hop over to the car Care center to p/u the rental car while DW and DD get us settled in the room ( Don’t think we’ll use it much but since I heard the resort is so big and we do have a few things off property planned, I figured we would go for it) . After we are settled we plan on exploring the resort, maybe a quick dip in the pool for DD and I, grab a quick bite at Artists Palette, then either hop the ferry over to POR to see YeeHa Bob or catch the outdoor movie at the resort. (Weather permitting). Gonna make it a semi early night as #1. It’s travel day so we’ll be bushed and #2. We have EMH at EP the next morning.
Day #2 Thurs. 5/11.
Gonna do EP with EMH morning for 8am. We plan on eating breakfast in our room before we head out. Ordering some groceries to arrive via Amazon Now once we land so we’ll have some food and drinks for our stay. Not sure if we’ll take bus or the car. Havnt decided yet. We plan on midday break so car might be helpful (SUGGESTIONS??) Anyway, without posting the TP because I don’t know how, our plan looks roughly like this… RD to TT, the Soarinx2, turtle talk, nemo w/ FP, figment, jammitors, visa character meet, SE w/ FP, then back to resort for 1pm. Our TP has us finishing up around 12:30pm. Figure we could eat by the pool, take a swim and maybe catch a short nap before heading back to EP . I know EP is more of a full day and maybe even a 2 day park for some. But I really believe in midday breaks to keep everyone rested and we are ok if we don’t get to everything. So, we head back to EP around 5pm and use our final FPP for FEA. Then we stroll around WS from Norway to Canada and make our way to GG for an ADR at 7:35pm. GG has a special place in my heart. It is the first restaurant my parents took me to on our first visit. I didn’t mention it’s also DW and I’s 21st Wedding Anniversary. I know, I know, I could have picked someplace more romantic than GG, but DD13 will be with us and like I said, GG has sentimental value here. Anyway, we cap the night off with a leisurely stroll towards WS to get a view of illuminations. Going to attempt a 4th FPP for the viewing area after FEA but I’m not holding my breath. Figure we can get a good viewing spot somewhere. Anyway after that we head back to resort and can actually sleep in a bit as I didn’t schedule an actual park day for day #3.
Boy, didn’t realize how much I actually have here. I’ll post day #'s 3 & 4 tomorrow at some point. Can’t wait to actually read and compare how close I came to my plans once we get back.
