I know I am in the minority doing AK 2 days and HS just one, but I just love AK. It just feels so much more laid back and relaxed. It doesn't hurt that we are a family of animal lovers either. : )
I actually scheduled FP+ for this twice, since there weren't many FP+ attractions at AK that our family will go on.

I did Expedition Everest for ME (DH doesn't want to, and DS is too young/small) and Kali River Rapids--as well as both shows. I figured this way, even with the morning EMH and being at Tusker House before park opening, we don't have to worry about the safari and can take our time getting there.

I am also not getting a FP+ for Everest. My sister recently went and said the walked right on through the single rider line and took turns while their kids played at The Boneyard.

We are having dinner at Cinderella's Royal Table in November. This will be our first time dining here and I have heard that it is all you can eat. Does anyone know if this is true (for dinner)? I can only find info about the breakfast being all you can eat.

Good to know. If I can easily get on, I can switch things up if need be. But since the day I have Everest scheduled is a day when we're NOT hopping (plan to be at AK until the parade), I don't know what I'd switch it to.

If I'm understanding the FP+ for parades having "reserved" viewing areas, I may change up a day completely. I'm glad we got FP+ for Fantasmic on our first night.

Ate there a few years ago; not all you can eat. Prime rib was excellent though!

I have never been to Animal Kingdom. We plan on going this trip, but not spend the entire day there. What are some things we should make sure we do? If we get there when it opens, is until about 2pm good?

Our favorites are Expedition Everest, Yak and Yeti restaurant, Dawa bar, the walk around the tree, It's Tough to be a Bug, and the Safari ride. You may also like the petting zoo.

Thanks DD is 10, and I am a germaphobe..we will skip the petting zoo

It's Tough to be a Bug, what is that? Off to Allears to look up stuff! Should I get Fastpass for anything? I haven't bought tickets yet, and may not until we get there so FP+ is not an option.

I got this off of AllEars about It's Tough To be a Bug

Without going into detail, a variety of bugs, spiders and other insects will entertain you...scare you...and get your attention!

What does this mean? My DD is VERY afraid of spiders and bugs, if its a film she is ok, if they "are near her" she will FREAK....Should we skip this?

Hello all

We will be at WDW this November too!

Are people getting FP+ options for parades?

What about POC in MK?

I happened to be online when our Magic Bands and FP+ became available and those things were never an option

Mmm, perhaps. There are no real bugs, it's mostly a film, but it is a "4D" experience.

I would skip it. Huge fake spiders drop down from above, you get "stung", and feel bugs under your bottom during the show.
