Glad you had a nice trip! Nice to meet you. How long are you going for in 3 months?

We're doing a WL CL & AKV split stay in March,for 7 days. AKL is my favorite (and the favorite resort of one DS), the other DS loves WL so this will make everyone happy!

I forgot I wanted to report back on the FP+ trial. We had chosen 4 FP for MK and 3 for DHS. While it sounded great in theory, we only ended up using 1 FP. We just weren't in the right park or by that attraction at the time we needed to be. We used the FP for the Wishes Preferred Viewing location in the Rose Garden. It was nice to watch Wishes without being crammed in body-to-body, but getting TO the Rose Garden was difficult with the way the traffic was flowing (or not flowing I should say!)

I also enjoyed the new TT. I was never a huge fan of TT, and I'm still not, but the interactive part is a lot of fun if you're riding with people you know. I'm not sure it would be as much fun if you rode single rider.

Remember how stressed I was over airfare costs? It pays to be patient...I ended up being able to use airmiles toward the flight down, it's costing me $37 And my flight home went down from $193-$118 I called and got a credit, gave my credits to Scott and his flight home is $43

Plans:

Thurs 2/21: arrival day, should be to AKLV by 10:30am, heading to MK, lunch @ BOG!

Fri 2/22, I have friends I havent seen in years, driving down to meet me I have to go to the Princess Half Expo to get my stuff for the race, then I'll do whatever my friends want.

Sat 2/23, check out of my Jambo studio and into AKLV CL (unless my wait list for the 1st 2 nights should come through, then I'll already be there). I'll do whatever my friends want to do...Have to go to sleep early, 3am comes fast, LOL.

Sun 2/24, race day! What I do after depends on what condition I am in

Mon 2/25, my friends leave, but Scott arrives! He wont get to AKL until about 5:30pm or so, we're just gonna chill.

Tues 2/26, Epcot all day! We have lunch ressies @ Nine Dragons

Wed, 2/27, DTD in the morn...Have the Jiko Wine & Cheese hr booked again

Thurs 2/28-AK all day

Fri, 3/1. departure day We have lunch ressies at Teppan Edo...We dont have to be back to resort until 6:30pm ME.

Your plans sound great. I am sure the race is going to be great.

I know you will have an amazing time with friends and Scott..

Great re spilt stay I love it! 7 days is a nice time ( living in WDW in better lol ) . Thanks for the FP+ report. I did not realise you could use it for a wishes preferred view! Do you know how they decide how many FPs you get?

Congratulations on your trip

I don't have kids myself, but everything I've heard about Simba's Club has been positive.
