**Holiday Survival Guide Touring Plan**

So, I'm heading to MK on December 30 for the entire day. Staying offsite but buying tickets in advance and doing rope drop at 8am. I have been working on creating a basic touring plan to ensure I see what I want to and get some time to explore New Fantasyland. We've got teens, so here's the plan.

Big Thunder Mountain Railroad
Jungle Cruise
FASTPASS Space Mountain
Tomorrowland Speedway (don't know why but they're adamant about doing this)
Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin
FASTPASS The Barnstormer
Lunch: Be Our Guest Restaurant
Space Mountain
12:30pm Mickey's Once Upon a Christmastime Parade
The Barnstormer
FASTPASS Splash Mountain
FASTPASS Under the Sea - Journey of the Little Mermaid (if not connected to system)
Mad Tea Party
Free Time (What to Do?)
FASTPASS Space Mountain
Under the Sea - Journey of the Little Mermaid
Free Time (What to Do?)
Splash Mountain
Free Time (What to Do?)
Space Mountain
Free Time (What to Do?)
Dinner: TBD (suggestions for in the park?)
8:30pm Holiday Wishes

What do you think? What could I do during all that free-time? Thanks!

I'd check Steve Soare's site and do some of the live performances. He won't put the exact schedule up until that Sunday, but things don't change *that* much from week to week, and he's pretty reliable:


I dunno if they do the Hoedown when it's that crowded, but certainly the musical groups will be out in full force, Move It! Shake It! is fun, and the Christmas stage show is nice.

Also, are you not up to staying for the dry run on "Fantasy in the Sky"? They usually do one on the 30th. If you're going to deal with the crowds, might as well get your money's worth on the special stuff.
