Now I am thinking we won't want to leave MK for dinner and maybe should stay in the park. Crystal Palace or LTT????
Your 'Ohana reservation is at 5:00. What about making it later and then watching Wishes from the Poly Beach? (That's a plan in the back of my head for the last two trips, didn't happen. Maybe this time. The NYE fireworks video from Poly Beach was amazing.)

great idea in theory...but I know it won't work for us after traveling and hitting the MK for a bit to soak in the atmosphere I know we will be ready for bed after our early dinner. DS 12 is not too keen on Fireworks on a good day, so we save them for 1x in the trip on a day where we have plenty of rest. Just looking to minimize the rushing around once we finally get there.

oh, i agree. my suggestion would never work for us as we' d all be asleep in our dinner plates, lol. i know some people can do it though. i know we need tobe in bed early that first night so we' ll either hit MK for a few hours with a QS supper there or AoA OR an early meal at CM or OH and then back to AoA to bed.......i' m thinking the 2nd option because if we go to MK we' ll probably end up staying later than planned.

We will be to bed early for sure! The whole going to mk is just to enjoy wandering around. If we ride something great. Then it's early dinner and bed! Just don't know if we would be ready to head to the poly at 4:30, or just stay put to eat in mk . Going to ask ds 12 in a second. Ds 14 is at a birthday party so ill let the young one pick! I'll let everyone know what he thinks!

Ok, I booked Chef Mickeys for arrival day @ 5:00 p.m. We'll get to AoA at probably 11ish, hang at the hotel/swim and then hop on the bus to MK around 4:00. Then back to AoA and to bed by 8:00.

I hope being to close to MK, we're not tempted to go in.

I think I've been in the dark. What is this, and how is it affecting us?

I really need to get a move on. I have 107 days until arrival day and have yet to finish sorting out my ADRs, and now I have to worry about potentially booking my rides 60 days out? I Don't even think they had regular FP last time I went to WDW!

This is my first trip in 15 years and now I just feel stressed

I was hoping not to have to deal with anymore changes to FP before our trip, but guess I should look into what its all about!

we booked our dinner for Crystal Palace at 5:00pm so we can stay put in the MK. we should get to POR around 11:45am and board the bus to MK about 1:30 after dinner its bed!

off to read about this FP+ shenanigans!
