I need some advice as my ADR day will be here before I know it! So we will be at WDW in Sept Thurs - Monday. Tentative hours and dates have EMH for MK on Friday and I was hoping to get EMM on the following Sunday. Both days are party days so MK closing early. We will not be doing the party and and est CL is a 1.
Couple of questions:
- Would you do a late breakfast or a late lunch at BOG (our first time) given no dining plan and hot temps on the EMH day (Friday) or really any other day if I switch it up?
- How would you break up attractions and rides. I know FL and TL are open for EMH (i think, also a first as never stayed onsite before now). And will hopefully be doing those rides again during EMM on Sunday.
I like the idea of the Friday and Sunday CL at MK, but maybe I need to switch my other MK from Friday to another?
I was thinking this:
Thur - arrive MCO 9:30am- DME to Pop, drop off carry-ons, then head over to Blizzard Beach. We have the + option thought MVT that allows 1 admission. Then back to POP after a few hours, rest, then head to AK for the evening.
Friday - EMH MK tour until it’s too hot we can stand it. Back to resort to rest, pool, the hop to another park. not sure which yet
Saturday - Epcot - PPO GG - Soarin then run to FEA, then FP for TT, then tour FW until again it’s too flipping hot, resort to rest, pool, etc. Then another park in the afternoon, evening.
Sunday - MK - EMM - tour until it’s too hot again, back to resort, rest, hop to another park.
Monday - HS - EMM - also check out day. do a few shows after TSL EMM, then back to POP to catch Magical Express.
A few things to note:
*if we miss fireworks, not a big deal, DD8 doesn’t like the noise. Was thinking of a ADR in Epcot somewhere to possibly watch, maybe Mexico?
*We don’t need to account for Space, Splash, EE, FOP (ducking for cover as I type this) EE, ToT, RR. My daughter absolutely will not ride these rides as I will not either…well most of them anyway.
*I usually follow a touring plan to a T in the am and then wing it afterwards.
*DD would like to spend some time in AK working on her WE badges. We only have the ones from Rafiki’s so far. I know we won’t accomplish that on the Thursday afternoon/evening along with everything else.
*She says she wants to go to World Showcase, I don’t know if she realizes what that entails. And it will be F&W over a weekend, I don’t really drink, so not worried about that and don’t want to get involved with the crazies over the weekend at Epcot.
I know I don’t have a full rest day but she was fine last April when we went pretty hard core from rope drop to late evening for 4 day straight. I am thinking the rest in the afternoon will be good. But it wasn’t hotter than the surface of the sun hot when we went last.
Honestly if I wasn’t worried about fitting in a visit to the water park this would probably be easy.
So, suggestions, thoughts, etc. Tell me what you would do.
