Someone make the park decision for me

We are going in Feb, with park days the 11, 12, 13 and 14th

11: AK 12: HS
Now here is want I need someone to pick as the decision is to hard for me.

(This trip is just my bf and I. No kids)

I can't figure out which day to go to MK/epcot

Thursday feb 13.
There is extra magic hours in the AM. I see that as a con though as we wanted to do breakfast at the castle. Since there are the emh the park will not be empty with the first 8am reservation.
However there is the electric light parade which neither of us have ever seen.
MK closes at 8pm

OR

Friday feb 14 valentines day
Epcot has extra hours at night time. Open until 11pm
MK is open until 10pm
We do do morning breakfast without a lot of people at the park.
And hello it's valentines day in the castle!
But there is no electric parade.


Please someone pick for me! My bf said he's cool either way. It's to hard! I wish I had 100 park days instead of 4!

Thanks for the opinion keep 'em coming! the epcot restaurant we have planned is coral reef.

Would that be good for valentines day though?

If it was me I would add park hoppers to my tickets. I would hop to Epcot after AK on the 11th and spend sometime exploring/drinking around the world showcase and maybe even grab dinner. Then the 12th do DHS as planned (watch fantasmic). The 13th I would go to Epcot during the day to avoid the early crowds of emh at mk. Then head to mk later to see the parade and maybe book the dessert party/BOG for dinner. Then on the 14th i would book an early breakfast at mk for the early entry and spend most of the day here since Epcot may be more crowded. Then head to Epcot later for an Valentine's day dinner somewhere and illuminations. Coral reef is OK, but I would rather eat at a restaurant in the world showcase personally. I look at it like this when I think of Disney trips. I have already spent a lot of money, the little extra it costs to add hoppers is worth . Good luck with your decision.

Just noticed there is an electrical parade the evening of the 10th. It is cheap to add a fifth day on your ticket if you will arrive early enough the 10th for mk and the evening activities. We do this every trip and love it. Nothing like starting your vacation with fireworks over the castle. Just an idea that's A LOT cheaper than park hopper that meets all your needs. Then mk at 14 and Epcot on 13.

Oooo I didn't even think about a 5th day!


Okay I'll bed honest the only reason we are going to coral reef is because I'm 110% obsessed with full house and that's where Danny tanner went with his GF Vickie.

Thanks for the suggestions!

Wait am I reading this correct?


A five day ticket is only $10 more than a 4? There's no way that's right.

That's correct adding days isn't that pricey once you get past the first day

We added a 6th park day to our trip this past February for $10 just to experience evening EMH at Magic Kingdom on our arrival day! I'd vote to go for this option or adding park hoppers. The $50-ish there is worth it for the flexibility.

Also, your reasoning for eating at Coral Reef is the exact reason I've been wanting to eat there since I was a kid! And stay at the Grand Floridian someday. Hope your trip is awesome no matter what you decide!

Yeah and since there is just the two of us, the extra day is only $20! Twenty dollars! That's amazing.

Thanks so much for the suggestions. This was brilliant and a money saver so I don't have to had the park hopper for a ton more!

I stayed at the GF last time and honestly it's an amazing experience. Even just go there and walk around. It's so beautiful. It's like it's right out of a Full house episode or something lolllll.

We are stating at the contemporary this time which I'm sure will be just as perfect. like most people could sleep in the dumpster and be happy as long as you're at WDW!

So is it still cheap to add a day to no expiration tickets if past the 1st day?
