I Just booked an adults only trip for next month! Crazy, I know! My Ex is taking my kids to Hawaii and me and my DH were planning on driving up to VT and Canada for the week. But last week, I was checking around on the WDW website and the 30% off deal starts 8/15. I kind of half-heartedly threw it out to DH, telling him it's about $2000.00 for the two of us, including the PH tickets and DDP. I am absolutely shocked that he agreed! He is not a Disney person by any stretch of the imagination and he doesn't fly. I think when I said we could drive down, he felt like he couldn't say no! So as excited as I am, I have a few questions. The last few trips I've been on have been carefully planned out over at least 10 months to a year, with every last detail researched thoroughly. This trip is going to be the trip of a lot of firsts...my first booked at the last minute trip, my first adults only trip, first time driving, first time staying at BC. So here are my questions... 1. I'm super excited to stay at the BC! I've been reading through all of the BC threads and looking at the pics. I am so excited to stay here! We booked a Garden View room and did online check-in already (first time using on-line check-in also!). I could choose 2 room requests, so I picked full balcony and upper floor. Good choices? Should I request anything else? Will DH and I feel funny swimming at SAB since we aren't with the kids? I read something about the new RFID Refillable mugs...they come with the DDP...will they be switched over by 8/15? I kind of hope they are since we just got back from an April trip (Me, Mom, DD and DS) so I have 4 of the old mugs already. 2. Driving...I'm kind of dreading this part, but the good thing is that this will be the first time I've had a car. So aside from EPCOT, which I know we will walk to, do you typically drive to the other parks if you have a car? Is that the best way to get around to MK, DD, AK and DHS? Is parking free for hotel guests? 3. I've already made ADRs...Rose and Crown on our first night at 6:40 pm (will request outside seating and hope to see Illuminations from here!), The Plaza at MK the next night (will pay OOP for this to save the credit for a signature), Yachtsman's Steakhouse the next night (Is this a good choice for a Signature?), and our last night we have the F! package at MM. How do these look? I was actually surprised there was so many choices available at this late date! 4. Please tell me that FP+ will not affect us this time around...ugh...totally dreading that and I didn't think I had to worry about it until next year! 5. Any other advice or tips would be welcome! Happy to be planning again so soon, but Thanks!!
