Hi There!

I have been a super-detailed planner for every Disney vacation we have taken.....I just didn't know there was a name for it!!! I am thrilled to have found the commando thread. I am always looking for ideas to tweak my schedule

Wednesday: EPCOT
Thursday: AK
Friday: MNSSHP
Saturday: Switch resorts, pool day, Anniversary dinner
Sunday: Cape Canaveral/Gatorland
Monday: DHS, Hollywood & Vine lunch
Tuesday: IoA
Wednesday: Whatever park we want to do again
Thursday: MK
Friday: Chill out
Saturday: Fly home

I still have a few days I can tweak it. I'm actually thinking of switching Wednesday and Friday around on that second week. What are the Commandos thoughts?
I LOVE seeing all the planing in the works
And I hope at the end of the trip you get to light a cigar and say I love it when a plan comes together


I would switch the Wed & Fri, you have time to relax when you get home, plus in a kids point of view I'm sure they would want to hit the park on the last day

I would like to see some shots of Carsland, most of the pics I've seen are company pics, just doesn't have the same affect as a guests pic

Welcome. Any commando planning secrets you have that you are willing to share?

Yes, we will be there from June 22 through July 7. I am looking forward to being there for the 4th! We have never gone before during the summer, but I am hoping that detailed planning will allow us to see what we want to see even during the crazy crowds

I noticed that too as I was writing this out. I think we will switch those days. We're going to do Chef Mickey's on one of the off days instead of the night we get there.


One question I have. I've only been to DLR, never to WDW. I remember DLR being fairly compact and not a lot of walking between rides or even between lands. Is everything really that much more spas out at MK or is my memory getting fuzzy?

I've never been to DL, but I do know they have limited space, WDW on the other hand owns over 42 square miles of land, so with that I would say things are spaced out much better

The 4th Awesome, should be GREAT fireworks that night Crowded yes, but with a a well thought out smart plan that others wouldn't even think of you should do fine

I've done Halloween night MNSSHP that was sold out, had a good plan, got everything done even with the crowds, I guess we just had a different agenda

So what are your plans for your stay

So, had to make some changes. Fulton's Crab House was booked for dinner Monday night, but available for lunch. So, I booked Shula's for Monday night and Fulton's for Sat night. When I looked today, Fulton's was again unable to be booked for Tuesday night. At first, I thought it was a private booking. Now, I wonder if they are closing for refurbishment. If that is the case, I'm not sure I want to eat there Sat night with them having limited inventory.

Ron if you want some pics of Cars Land, I'd be more than willing to post some once I get back from my trip to DL Nov 24 to 29th. I'm a photo geek, and intend on taking tons of pics while I'm down there, especially since I haven't been to CA since the park had all it's construction finished. I'm going to take a pile of pics of Carsland as the family hasn't seen it before.

Something doesn't sound right there, why would lunch be available and not dinner, if they were doing a refurb I would think nothing all day would be available, I would call them to see what the deal is, it could be some kind of glitch or something

That would be Awesome, especially since there is rumor of Carsland hitting HS in the future
