After receiving the dreaded CL increase email, I’m second-guessing which parks we should visiting on the first few days of our trip. We are: DH & myself, in our 40’s, and DD7. Arriving late evening Fri Nov 9, departing early morning Sun Nov 18. Staying at Poly. We have 8 day PH for the 10th-17th. Crowd levels are high Nov 10-12, lower the rest of our trip. Whatever parks we visit Nov 10-12 we will return to for at least a part day later in the trip. My goal for this weekend is to minimize being in and/or the stress of the large crowds but get some park time in.
Sat Nov 10 will likely be a late start due to arriving late the night before.
MK 10, EP 6 (but last weekend of Food & Wine), HS 6 (but once TSL opens this may change), AK 9
Original plan before CL change was AK from say 10a-5p with the evening at the resort, maybe watch fireworks on the beach.
Wondering whether braving EP Food & Wine crowd might be better than being in AK at a 9. We could do WS first and then FW later in the day when presumably the crowds in WS are growing?
Sun Nov 11
MK 8, EP 9, HS 7, AK 9
Original plan was to rope drop HS. TP calendar isn’t showing this as an EMH morning although a lot of Sundays are EMH at HS so there is a possibility it might turn out to be EMH. If so, we would stay at the park until it gets busy. Resort afternoon. Had thought we might do a night time show such as ROL or HS, but with those crowd levels it might be a good evening for 'Ohana dinner or Chip & Dale’s campfire.
Mon Nov 12
10’s across the board
Original plan was resort day, Afternoon Tea and MVMCP. From past experience I know we need to sleep in and relax to make it close to the end of the party.
Now that everywhere has a CL of 10, if we do MVMCP this day I think we would wait until 6 pm to enter.
Any thoughts on our plans?
Also, any thoughts on what the crowds would be like during the day at Disney Springs this weekend? On our previous trip we went on a weekday afternoon and crowds were light.
