Our Plans are finally set woo hoo!
Dec 8 - Fly to MCO arrive at Beach House approx 2:30 Cape May Cafe dinner then Epcot
Dec 9 - Magic Kingdom all day then MVMCP
Dec 10 - DHS with dinner at Brown Derby (my favourite)
Dec 11 - Cape May Cafe breakfast, Epcot all day, Chefs de France dinner then Dis meet at Boardwalk
Dec 12 - Dis transportation to Cruise
Dec 13 - I'm attending all Dis activities, DD wants to see Jodi Benson, not sure what DH and DS will be doing in Bahamas
Dec 14 - Celebrating my birthday all day at Castaway Cay and all night at Pirate Night and at Wavebands
Dec 15 - Attending Podcast Taping and Autograph session then just enjoying ourselves
Dec 16 - Debark and Fl tours to Hard Rock Hotel straight to Universal check crowds at WWOHP at 4:00
Dec 17 - Early Entry to IOA for WWOHP. At 3:00 DD and I depart for the Swan then Princess dinner in Norway and DATW (DH and DS stay another night in Universal)
Dec 18 - DD and I in MK all day meeting DH and DS for dinner at Tokyo dining in Epcot in the evening
Who knows how much of this will go as planned. Somewhat depends on the weather if it is cool we will stick to this, if it is hot the kids are going to want to spend 1/4 of the Beach Club time swimming. Since it is our 4th trip we are planning to go with the flow.
