Girls Gone Wild

Friday-We are hoping for an early flight out of Minneapolis and arrive at MCO before noon.

We will take ME to AKV, or maybe POR for a pre race packet pickup cocktail*.

We are planning on going to Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party on friday evening. Will Lisa and I dress up?? Tweedledee and Tweedledum perhaps? Any other suggestions?

Saturday-Early up for the 5K (Hooray!!! What is our team name, anyway??) We will rock the race, and head back to AKV for some quality hot tub time with our peeps. Mimosas* anyone? We are still working on getting Connie to pop over for this after her CP breakfast! C'mon...you know you want to

Epcot Food and Wine is the plan for today. Maybe some afternoon chilling at the resort or downtown Disney. Back to Epcot to cheer at the finish line and party into the night*!

Sunday-Relax until it is time to head back to MCO

I am pretty sure that we are going to do the QSDP, so we can have those extra snack credits for F&W. I am going to make some ADR's, just in case we decide to go with DDP, though. Maybe a LeCellier lunch to share and Boma for breakfast on Sunday?

The idea, when I booked this weekend, was to make it very economical because we have our big trip about a month after. That is why we are doing MNSSHP on Friday night and a one day ticket for Epcot on Saturday!

I am SO excited to meet everyone


ETA...upon review, I appear to be a bit of a lush!

Your plans sound great! Does that make me appear to be a bit of a lush too? I'm just sorry I'm going to miss you on this trip.

As of now our plans are to arrive on Wednesday. I think we will be to Pop around 1:00 p.m. Our plans are to go to MK to eat dinner and see MSEP and Wishes if we have enough stamina for it.

What time are you switching from DHS to Epcot?

Well, we will figure it out as we get closer. We can do one of two things: 1) Meet you at Pop before we head to Epcot and you head to MK or we could meet you at MK and then we could go to Epcot.

I was editing my post when you responded. That would be great if you are willing to work with us--We would LOVE to meet you and Mark.

Wow, I hope you all can keep track of who's going to be meeting where. I'm starting to get confused reading it all.

Kayce's Tentative Plans

Wednesday, Sept. 28-go to work and get off at 3:15. We will have packed my mom’s car the night before, my mom will pick Bella up from school at 2:45, then come pick me up from work. We will head straight to the airport, hopefully for a 5:30ish flight. That night, we will check in and get settled, and maybe explore a little bit. I am hoping to get to bed fairly early!

Thursday, Sept. 29-Early morning EMH at MK…hoping to do a few FL rides then get in line for Rapunzel. In the early afternoon we will head back to the resort for a rest. I’m hoping to get an ADR around 4:00 for a Mama Melrose Fantasmic package. If I can’t get that, we will probably do 50’s Prime Time but either way plan on staying for Fantasmic!

Friday, Sept. 30-Breakfast at Akershus, hopefully around 8:00 am. Then we can be at the Future World RD and do Soarin. The plan for the morning is to do FW then maybe go back and rest if needed. We will then head over to WS during the evening hours to stay for Illuminations with a DIS meet in there somewhere.

Saturday Oct 1-I plan on taking it VERY easy this day due to the race that night. We will probably try to get a lunch ADR at Le Cellier for around noon and I will catch the bus from Epcot to the Expo for packet pick up. Hopefully I can rest from about 4-6, eat dinner at the food court at 6ish, then head over to the starting line for the 10pm race. After the race I will probably spend a little time at the party walking around, having a beverage and maybe some food, and even to get a ride on Soarin’ if the wait isn’t too bad.

Sunday Oct 2-I am definitely sleeping in this day! The morning will be leisurely, with pool time and a nice breakfast at Pop. I am hoping to get a 3:00 or so WCC meal and head over to the MK around 4. We will ride a few things and then get in line for the Dwarfs and head around to find other characters and trick or treat. I would like to head to the Hub for Hallowishes then meet up with everyone for the second parade.

Monday, Oct 3-AK day, we will get there as early as possible. We will stay as long as we want to and go back and rest if needed. I think I am going to try Ohana's for a ressie hopefully around 6 pm.

Tuesday, Oct 4-Hollywood Studios RD for the TSMM stampede! Hopefully we can make it to be one of the first at the rope! I'm thinking lunch at Sci Fi? Not sure yet.

Wednesday, Oct 5-Breakfast at CP at 8, hopefully “win” the Dumbo Dash from FL RD, finish up any rides we haven’t made it to, then head for the ME to go home.

I made my ADR's today! All TWO of them! This is so crazy to me. We have done deluxe a few times in a row and this February we went down to basic and NOW QS!! I EVEN FORGOT TODAY WAS MY ADR DAY!!! Thanks Jill for reminding me!!!

So here are our plans with the ADR's...

Friday Sept 30th-
Epcot F&W Festival- we will use up snack credits here on dinner.... and drink some wine. We also will meet up in France around 8PM for our DIS MEET and Illuminations!! I am SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO excited to meet everyone. (Although I really wish Jill was going to be there too!!!)

Saturday October 1 - DIS Day!!- 5K Race Day and then Hot Tub Party at AKV! I will leave the Hot Tub Party at some point and head on over to MK. We have our first ADR at 1:00 for lunch at Crystal Palace. Saturday night, Wayne will be napping and I will take the kids to Downtown Disney for some dinner at Earl of Sandwich and Ice Cream and Shopping! If my niece is there hopefully she will stay with the boys so I can head out around 11PM to meet Wayne at the finish line!!!! I cant believe he is running a half marathon!!!! We plan to party the night away or atleast until 3AM when they kick us out!

Sunday October 2nd - We plan to sleep in a little and then head to the Poly for breakfast at Ohana. I have a reservation for 8:45AM.... I kind of think we might end up missing this one because our plan is to hang at the pool for the entire day! Sunday afternoon we will head out around 3 for MK and go to the MNSSHP! Dinner at Columbia Harbor House or Pecos. SO EXCITED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Dis Meet at the 2nd parade!!!

Monday October 3rd - This is our last day. Our flight leaves at 6:30PM so we will spend most of the day at DHS! Lunch at Pizza Planet.

That is it. Lot's of FUN!! and very little SLEEP!!!!
