Our long-delayed, multiple-time-rescheduled trip for me and DH (we’re child-free millennials!) is coming up in September and the current plan is:
9/14 - Travel Day/Dinner at DS/Boo Bash
9/15 - Epcot
9/16 - MK
9/17 - HS
9/18 - AK
9/19 - Morning at DS/Travel Day
However, now that we got Boo Bash tix, I feel like we’ll probably knock out most of the rides that we want to do that evening, and then (unless Disney brings back parades before September) on our actual MK day, knock out shows and minor attractions and be done by about 1:30p, with a desire to come back that evening to do the HEA fireworks. We don’t have PH tickets, currently, so hopping to another park isn’t an option.
So the question is - would it be worth squeezing in Blizzard Beach that afternoon? We’re really more lazy river, wave pool, mild slide people (would not be doing the crazy plunge slides) or is trying to also do the water park going to feel too crazy/too crammed? Is it crazy to go to a water park on an afternoon in September when it feels like there’s almost always going to be an afternoon rain shower? We’ve never done a Disney water park.
In terms of potential alternate activities, we’re staying at the Hilton Lake Buena Vista, so while there is a hotel pool option, it’s nothing special, hence why we aren’t just opting for a dip at the hotel pool at that time. The only other thought I’ve had is heading back to the hotel to rest for a bit, and then head over to Trader Sams (if it’s reopened by then) and trying to drink through their entire tiki menu But open to other activity recommendations to fill this gap as well.
