We planned most outdoor activities during the morning hours. I was told that we could still golf when it rains(except thunderstorm threatens)
I believe in the Disney Magic...

massage
Yachtsman
Epcot fireworks cruise YC marina

Nov 29
Breakfast in room
Richard Petty (this is just a maybe--long story but not sure if I'm going with my dd or my hopefully by then fiance)
mini golf
sea raycers

If going with dd then no Richard and will do Aqua Seas instead
Victoria and Alberts
carriage ride at POR

Nov 30- send over luggage to Poly for a 5 night stay MK view with DXDP--run over and pick up keys so we have enough credits for lunch--also will use monorail to get to Epcot from Poly
Breakfast in room before departing AKL
Dolphins in Depth 9:45
Coral Reef for lunch using dining credit off Poly reservation
Cirque 6pm
Fultons 8pm
Flights of Wonder (I know not included but I never get around to doing it)--OOPS editing-I think it is Flights of Adventure but whatever----the balloon--LOL

I'm open to any suggestions. I have until 6/1 to work this out to start making ADR. Thanks
Sounds great! My only concern is your Day 1 lunch- this presumes your room is ready early. If not, I'm sure you can grab lunch elsewhere. Where are you doing your massage? ---Kathy

True, but I am sure if it isn't we can get something somewhere easily. That is just my preference. As far as the massage I was just thinking stay at AKL so I can go back and take a shower before dinner to get any oils off and change. Much quicker. I really am a lazy person I want to get the most for my money but not have to work for it. Oh got my room today .....AKL Jambo house-Deluxe studio--should I spring for the 1 bedroom? I'm thinking not since we will be very busy.

A quick question about the meals...on the Disney site PDF file, it states 1 breakfast, lunch and dinner and 2 snacks for each night of my stay. Do they have to be used as those meals or can I do 1 dinner on the first day and 1 lunch and 1 dinner on the second day?

The meals can be used in any order that you'd like but you only have 3 for the 2 days.

I thought so. I just wasn't sure by the way it was worded. Thanks.

Finished all my planning to our "single night" on the premier plan. In no particular order my wife m daughter and myself will over two days do the following :

Fort Wilderness Segway
Epcot Segway
Fort Wilderness horseback riding - wife and daughter
Deluxe parasailing both afternoons
breakfast at Boma
Supper at Hoop-Dee-Doo
supper at Jiko
viewing area for both Wishes and Illuminations

Wanted to do La Nouba but it is dark both days.

We are going to be sooo tired when that second day is done - I am already looking forward to that king bed at Kidani !

When are you going? I ask because I was told that it's better to parasail in the mornings in case of bad weather in the afternoons. They said it was especially true in the summer, when there are usually thunderstorms every afternoon.

Has anyone who is doing the platinum plan run into any issues using it to dine at Victoria and Albert's?

The reason I ask is because on this page: http://disneyworld.disney.go.com/vac...2010/platinum/
about half way down it talks about the plan including signature dining experiences but excludes Victoria and Albert's.

I am assuming this is a mistake (like they copied the info from Premium but forgot to change it), since the pdf linked on this very same page says Platinum plan does include V&A. Any thoughts?

yes we chatted about this a few pages ago. I'm calling Vic and Alberts tomorrow before I make my final decision. I'll let you know.

The time we are using the package for is the first full weekend in June. I know from experience about the 3 pm showers but the segway tours are only provided in the morning hours at both Epcot and Ft. Wilderness. Barring an bad weather I decided that the nice breeze from the parasailing would feel good in the hot afternoon - save the cooler morning for the "slower" activities.

Even if we don't do the parasailing at all, I'm still happy. The meals alone (inside) or the segway tours alone (morning) would cover the cost of the premium plan. I do know that I haven't been this excited about an upcoming Disney trip in years - and I always look forward to my trip to the land of the Mouse !

My head is spinning with all the possibilities!!! I LOVE it!!! A few questions - has anyone done the Aqua Seas and Dolphin tours? Which is better? I haven't seen the surfing lessons mentioned - are they a no go?? If parasailing only lasts 10-12 mintues, can you do it more than twice in a row?? How will I sleep?! Can we/should we afford it? How can we pass it up as this surely can't last?! How can we fit it all in?! Sweet Disney Dreams for sure tonight! Thanks OP for planting the seed of possibility for so many people!

It is a mistake, for sure. I have mine booked already, and the CM at V&A's assured me that the platinum package IS accepted.

Version 3.0 of our plans:

Day 1:
Keys to the Kingdom (8:30 - 1:30) - includes lunch
Portrait Session at Poly
Spirit of Aloha (5:15 - 7:15)
Priority viewing of Wishes (9)

Day 2:
Snack for Breakfast
EPCOT segway tour (8:30 - 10:30)
Snack to hold us over til lunch
EPCOT AquaSeas (12:30 - 3 pm)
Lunch Tutto Italia
La Nouba (6 - 7:30)
Priority Viewing of Illuminations (9)
Dinner at Yachtsman Steakhouse (~9:30)

I estimate it costs us $328 to add the premium plan for this one night. I estimate the cost of the activities to be around $1081 (not including portrait session, since I don't know how much this is). So we will definitely get our money's worth.

Do you think its too much to do the Segway tour and then the AquaSeas tour?

I'm seriously tempted to do this for one night/two days. Then head over to Universal for the other 5 nights of our trip?? I already have 5 day passes to Universal that I bought a long time ago and never used. And I'd like to see Harry Potter. Hmmmm But it will depend on what happens with discounts/free dining for late Aug.
