Psst...did you hear? No? Oh...okay. Well, I AM GOING TO DISNEY WORLD! I didn't think we would get to go for a real Disney vacation this year. But we bought no-expire tickets when we visited mom/dad in December, so it would be sillt to not squeeze in another trip to Disney! When: June 25th - July 2nd I am hoping we can get in and out before the parks get slammed with the Summer crowds. Cross your fingers! This will be a very different trip for us. Since we already bought tickets, we are not doing the usual Disney package. So no Keys to the World Tickets. No dining plan . No disney resort. That's right. For the first time in my life, we will be staying "off propery" Where: Double Tree Guest Suites in the WDW Resort Okay, so it's not like we are THAT FAR off propert. But it isn't Disney, so it will be a new experience for us. What will bus system be like? How close are they really to DTD? Will it feel like a Disney vacation? Only time will tell. Here is our rough plan for the trip: 6/25 -- arrive at hotel and relax. that's right. we ain't doin nuthing on the first day. Well, it is a Saturday and the parks are nuts on Saturday. And we will be arriving a little late in the day, so it will be nice to just sit back and relax into our new home. 6/26 -- Magic Kingdom. They've been making lots of changes since our last visit, so I am anxious to see what is new and un-finished. We will do lunch at Tony's Town Square and will just grab a QS dinner in the park. 6/27 -- Hollywood Studios. The new Star Tours ride should be open, so that will be exciting. Plus we will do our mad-dash run to the TSM and the other FP rides first thing. For lunch we will just grab a QS in the park and for dinner we will HOP over to Epcot to have dinner at Via Napoli. We had lunch here in December. It was really good, so I am looking forward to having a full-meal. 6/28 -- chill day! I am thinking Blizzard Beach in the AM and maybe DisneyQuest in the PM. We want to take it slow this day. I made dinner plans at Paradiso 37. Another NEW experience for us! 6/29 -- Epcot. Time to cram in as much as we can. Made lunch ressies fro Les Chefs de France. We had dinner her with Remy on our last trip and it was so much fun. Even without the rat, I think we will like it! 6/30 -- another chill day. WHAT? That is right! I want to relax on this vacation! We have done enough Disney now, and we deserve a vacation where we just sit in a chair and enjoy the sun and water. So I am thinking today we will go to Typhoon Lagoon. For dinner, I made an ADR at Raglan Road. 7/1 -- last full day. no meal plans today. We will likely do MK or EP. No plans, we will just wing it. 7/2 -- vacation ends. But the story doesn't end there. I will be back (eventually) with more.
