We are planning another trip to Orlando, this time for my birthday in December. We will, as usual, stay at my timeshare off 192, south of Animal Kingdom. We are tentatively planning three Disney days (since we have three days left on our 10-day passes from 2 years ago). My sister moved to Orlando a year ago, and will be starting a job at Universal in the next few weeks, so we will probably go there as well. My parents retired to Groveland (about 40 minutes northwest of the airport) in January, so of course we will have to see them, too. I'd forgotten how much I hate the crowds; we haven't gone at a particularly busy time since Gay Days (June) 2011. We went to visit my folks a couple of weeks ago, and decided to check out the new Fantasyland. Well, I had left our passes home, so I bought one-day tickets at $97 each. David didn't want to get moving ("the park is open til 1am, we have all day!"), so we didn't get on-site until about 11:30. By then, Space Mountain was giving Fast Passes for 530pm, and the park was a zoo - I'd forgotten we were traveling during a spring break week. We stopped at the Lunching Pad in Tomorrowland and had hot dogs, then headed back towards Fantasyland. Well, the Under The Sea ride had a 150 minute wait, and we couldn't get Fast Passes, since we had Space Mountain in hand. There wasn't anything else back there to see or do, and I abruptly started not feeling well. I decided it wasn't worth it, between feeling ill and feeling disappointed in the new area, so we left after less than three hours. Three very expensive hours! I hope it will be better when we go back - at the very least, less crowded, less hot, and the rest of the new stuff should be open.
