Well, I wrote our our general itinerary in another post, and thought I should add it here too... with a few other details...

Day 1 (Wed) is a 10:30 am arrival or so, our first couple trips we went to DL first because I couldn't bear not to, but now, we'll go to DCA 1st. FP Soarin', go ride Monster's, Ariel's lunch @ 12:30 pm, Soarin', cross to DL, Celebrate Parade?, swing through FL! do anything that is short (dd loves Snow and Pinocchio!), Pirates, HM & BTMRR, Pooh, Bengal BBQ for dinner, back to hotel for a good night's sleep!

Day 2 (Thu) is a MM day, probably an 8 am MM opening, but first, breakfast in the room. Then our usual order is: Peter Pan, Alice, Matterhorn, Dumbo, Toad, Snow, Pinnochio, Tea Cups. Then probably over to IASW, and then around to Buzz, FPing Space on the way, head over to Pooh and grab Splash FPs when we can. Lunch @ Carnation Cafe, then nap time--we often swing into DCA and by Soarin to get FPs for it before nap. After nap, go through DCA to ride Soarin, and then cross and do Space & Splash, and whatever till dinner. Hoping for F! this night--since it looks like the trick or treat party will be Friday, so planning on BB for dinner, and then F! dessert seating.

Day 3 (Fri) Character breakfast at PPH at 8 am or so (depends on when DCA opens.) Doing DCA this morning, Soarin 1st, then TSMM, Bug's land, Monster's again, noon lunch @ Rainforest Cafe, nap, pool time, and dinner at PPH Grill before ToTP @ DL that night (which looks like it will start at 4, we'll go around 6 most likely.) During the ToTP we'll just ride whatever we feel like (hopefully ToonTown will be open too, so we can swing through there), if it is anything like when it was at DCA ride lines will be nice and short. Hopefully DD will be tall enough for Indy, cause she wants to try it! Looks like this may be our only night to see the fireworks too, hopefully they'll be around 9 or so...

Day 4 (Sat) Breakfast at Storytellers at 8 am or so (depends on when DCA opens.) Doing DCA all day, going to try and take it easy since it will probably be slammed--not sure if we'll need to get WOC showpasses or if I will be able to book WOC seating for the 1st show, ride Soarin 1st then TSMM, pick up a FP for TOT (going to try and talk dd into trying TOT and Grizzly this year) then probably over to the Animation building for Turtle Talk and everything else there... FP for Grizzly, and ride TOT and Grizzly when we can. Lunch @ Farmer's Market, and maybe see Aladdin if they will still have it running at 1:55 pm... Think we'll try for the 4 pm WOC seating at WCT, and then go to the Play Parade afterward... This day is really up in the air, and I am afraid to leave for naps this day, because the weekend we are going is Columbus weekend, and I am worried about the park reaching capacity.

Day 5 (Sun): breakfast at Minnies at 8 am, then ride whatever we feel like until lunch time (WWS?)... then DTD for souvies (we save this for very last), and car to airport at 4:45 pm.

Looks like WOC seating is being hashed out... I think we'll do WOC seating at WCT at 4 pm, then we can step out for the Play Parade afterward... We never eat that early, but it might be nice to get out of the crowds! If they are still doing Aladdin, I think we could do the 1:55 Aladdin, WCT at 4, and Pixar Parade at 5:15 if it is still running at that time...

And more exciting news about the ToTP... fireworks only on that night it looks like... I can buy those tickets on July 16th... which I will definitely be doing for Friday night. Now, I wonder if all the regular places to eat will be open??

I would think they would be, they probably get good business on those nights.

Just realized we are at 3 1/2 months exactly!!

I so badly want to tell dd... I think she is going to figure it out, I keep measuring her to see if she is getting taller--hoping she can get on Indy this trip! But, I can hold out and not tell her till we are at the airport... at least that is the plan!

I would never make it myself. I would end up telling her.

Okay, I updated my budget with prices (I think they are correct) for MHP & F! dessert... I also decided to switch to a package at PPH... it was a $60 difference, even with my park hopper discount at work... and that $60 is worth it to me--actually that $60 also pays for the vacation insurance, which I have never needed, but like to buy anyway... so here goes my crazy detailed (and super expensive) budget!!


PPH concierge theme park view + 5 day park hoppers + premium dining voucher for our Ariel's meal + regular dining voucher for our PPH breakfast: $2002.95, paid $1050, owe = $952.95
Airfare on Jet Blue PDX-LGB: $398.80 paid!
Cute t-shirts & jammies for "Tink" to surprise dd with: $50 paid
F! reserved seating: ~$59 each = $118
MHP tickets: ~$54 each = $108 paid!!
Transportation to/from airport: ~$100

Extra $ for meals (I've scoured the menus and come up with a rough idea of what our meals will cost):
Ariels (lunch): paid with vouchers
Bengal BBQ (dinner): $20 (no tip)
Carnation Cafe (lunch): $25
PPH (dinner): $27
PPH (breakfast): paid with vouchers
Rainforest Cafe (lunch): $30
Blue Bayou (dinner): $50
Storytellers (breakfast): $45
Farmer's Market (lunch): $15 (no tip)
Dinner before WOC: ~$60 (WOC seating)
Minnie's (breakfast): $45
WWS (lunch): $20 (no tip)
Random snacks: $25 (no tip)

Tipped places: $282 + tips = $325
Non-tipped places: $100

If I have $250 in gift cards that I snap up over the next few months, that will leave another $175 I'll need to spend when there... bought a $50 gift card already!


Total: $3205.75, paid $1656.80, owe = $1545.95

Well Jet Blue tweaked flights a bit again...which is fine, at least they let me know each time they do it... so now we leave Portland at 7:10 am and arrive at 9:29 am at LGB--which is sounding suspiciously like what my original flight times were. And on the way back we have a 7:29 pm flight and arrive back in PDX at 9:48 pm. I think I better take a half day or something on Monday... going to be tired by the time we get home!! I think we can leave DLR at 4:45 pm on that Sunday, and have almost two hours at LGB still (with a 7:05 pm flight) don't you think??

Thinking of adding a trip to BBB for MHP night... we plan to have an afternoon rest and pool time, so I don't want to do it before, but if we go over after, I wonder if I can do like a 6 pm appt and have just hair and makeup done before the party starts at 7... hmmmm.....

Revised again, with the current info that WOC will be running nightly!

Day 1—Wed (flight lands at 9:29 am, arrive at hotel ~10:30 am)
Awake 4 am--Bed 9:30 pm (nap on plane)
DL 10-8, DCA 10-8
Breakfast: on plane
Lunch: Carnation Café 11:50 am
Dinner: WOC WCT at 4:00 pm

Head to DL first, eat lunch, ~1pm tour castle, short line rides, maybe Pixie Hollow if line looks short. ~2:30 pm walk over to DCA, Bug’s Land area before early WOC dinner. After dinner watch PPP (5:15 pm) then go get in WOC line (Abby rest in stroller), watch WOC at 8:15, go to bed.


Day 2—Thu
Awake 6:45 am—Bed 9 pm (nap in room)
MM 8-9 & DL 9-10, DCA 10-8
Breakfast: room service @ 7:00 am
Lunch: Ariel’s @ 11:40 am
Dinner: Bengal BBQ @ 5:30 pm

Breakfast, then line up for MM. Wear Princess dress for morning. Go do Peter Pan, Alice (?), Matterhorn, Dumbo, Toad, Snow, Pinocchio, Tea Cups. Then probably over to IASW, and then around to Buzz, FPing Space on the way, head over to Pooh and grab Splash FPs when we can. Cross to DCA at 11:15 am, grab Soarin’ FPs. Lunch, then nap. After nap (1:30-3:30 pm), go through DCA to ride Soarin, and then cross and do Space & Splash, and whatever till dinner. Dinner @ Bengal BBQ. Celebrate Parade at 7 pm (try and sit near Carnation Café.) Wondering if they will have regular fireworks that night??


Day 3—Fri
Awake 7:45 am—Bed 10 pm (nap in room)
DL 8-7, MHP 7-11, DCA 10-11
Fireworks during MHP
Breakfast: Storytellers @ 8:00 am
Lunch: Farmer’s Market @ 11:30 then nap & pool
Dinner: PPH 5:30 pm

Doing DCA this morning, Soarin 1st, then TSMM (if opened early—if not got to Monster’s), TOT, lunch @ Farmer’s Market, Grizzly on way out, then nap (12:30-2:30), pool time (3-4:45), and dinner at PPH Grill before MHP @ DL that night (which looks like it will start at 4, we'll go around 6) During the MHP we'll just ride whatever we feel like (hopefully ToonTown will be open too, so we can swing through there), if it is anything like when it was at DCA ride lines will be nice and short. Hopefully DD will be tall enough for Indy, cause she wants to try it! Looks like this may be our only night to see the fireworks too, hopefully they'll be around 9 or so...


Day 4—Sat
Awake 7:30 am—Bed 10:15 pm (nap in room)
DL 8-12, DCA 10-10
F! 9:05 pm
Breakfast: PPH @ 7:50 am
Lunch: Taste Pilot’s Grill @ 12 pm
Dinner: Blue Bayou @ 5 pm

Soarin 1st (is TSMM open yet?!), Monster’s, Silly Swings, Animation Academy, Turtle Talk. Lunch, nap (1-4), go to DL for BB dinner (do I need to p/u F! dessert passes early?) DL will probably be very crowded, just stick it out around Pooh, Pirates, HM etc until time for F! at 9:05 pm. Sit for fireworks if they are having them. Then off to bed.


Day 5—Sun (leave at 4:45 pm)
Awake 7:30—fly home at 7:05 pm
DL 8-12, DCA 10-10
Breakfast: Minnie’s @ 8:15 am

Go to Minnie’s breakfast, repeat favorites for the morning, go to early lunch at Rainforest Café, then back to DCA & favorites there like Bug’s Land (is TSMM open yet?!), Aladdin @ 3:05, shop for 45 minutes or so in DTD, then go get bags and grab a cab to airport @ 4:45/5pm.
