AK – Tusker House breakfast – FOTLK – Pandora
AKL – Boma breakfast – AK – Pandora
(FOTLK on another day)
Which has the most wow factor? Option 2 is cheaper, obvs. Option 1’s timings are tight. ADR is for 10.25am. FOTLK finishes at 10.40am. TH has characters, but I don’t know if my boys care and we have another character meal later in the week. AKL has the lobby and savannah.
I sat down to watch Molly’s latest Mammoth Club video on YouTube, in which she visits every resort in one day. She starts with AKL and we see the lobby. Within a second I’m thinking “OMG: We have to go there. I have to put that in the schedule.” I’d forgotten just how stunning it is.
So two minutes of Molly and I’m changing my plan. And this is often why my plans change so much. I’ll see something and think “we have to do that” and then try to figure out a way of doing so.
In this case the argument for changing was pretty compelling. Aside from the reasons most people have given, it’s saves about $100 because Boma is cheaper, and it’s a simpler plan because of the perhaps overambitious TH / FOLTK idea I had originally settled on.
Additionally, I don’t think my boys will care about character dining and they may think FOTLK is boring. Whereas you can’t not be wowed by AKL.
