So exciting!! I can't wait to follow along on Insta and see all the SWGE fun!
Tbh when I tried one a few years back it wasn't my favorite! haha so I never made it a priority for him but we will get him one sooner or later! I almost may have just had a bad experience waiting in a 45 minute line and not being able to ride Jingle Cruise lol
Hallelujah! So thankful I caught the price drop!!Amen sister that would be rough!
I cannot wait to be outta work and on my way! Only three more work days to get through!!For real! It will be such a fun whirlwind trip!
Okay this is what I needed to hear!! I don't really NEED either of them and I don't imagine I would do much with a droid beyond just making it and I totally leaned towards the lightsaber just for the experience. Idk I think if I do anything it will be the lightsaber and if we don't do that I'll just wait until another time to do something else!I went back and forth on that too. Now take this with a grain of salt because I didn't do either, but I told Jon over and over that I wanted to build a droid. Then we got there and I realized that as fun as the experience might be, it's $100 for a toy that is going to sit on a shelf and never get used. So unless you're super into droids or you know you'll have it out all the time, it might not be worth it.
Savi's I think is a much cooler experience. The magic of being to build the lightsaber then see it power up for the first time is almost existential (I've been told). So even though it's twice the cost of the droid, I think it's a lot more special. I'm working on getting Jon around to the idea that I might build one in May. At the very least it's an awesome decoration with a special memory attached to it.
But you (and DH) do you! Do neither! Do both! Do whatever feels special to you!
Oh yikes yeah that'll do it hahahaI almost may have just had a bad experience waiting in a 45 minute line and not being able to ride Jingle Cruise lol
That's the nice part about SWGE- it's not a limited time thing. So if you miss it the first time and realize you absolutely need one, you can always get it on the next trip.Idk I think if I do anything it will be the lightsaber and if we don't do that I'll just wait until another time to do something else!
I think I'll have a better idea of whether or not I really want one after this weekend! At least thats what I'm hoping lolThat's the nice part about SWGE- it's not a limited time thing. So if you miss it the first time and realize you absolutely need one, you can always get it on the next trip.
I definitely will be! We are staying at the Disneyland Hotel which I am SUPER excited for! I would have loved to have stayed at the Grand Californian but honestly, I'm excited for the light up headboards at the Disneyland hotel! hahaYour LA plans are coming together so nicely!!! Where are you guys staying? I hope you do a TR for that, I am antsy to get back there!
Exactly!! I really would like to get some of our sightseeing done that first day (like going to the observatory to see the Hollywood sign) so getting there earlier will definitely allow that to happen! And gives us more leeway for things to go wrong! lolId rather be tired and get there at 11:30 am than awake and get there at 5 PM. That layover would make me super anxious! Have you been to DL before? If not I would recommend making an ADR that includes priority seating for Fantasmic. It is VERY different there. My sister and I found that out the hard way several years ago. It will be fun to see it at Christmas time. I keep saying I need to get out there in November/December and then never do. I have a free place to stay (multiple if I asked around probably lol), I just never go!
Many, many trip itineraries in excel!! It would be impossible without them! I have ones for each trip and then an overall spreadsheet with everything I need to book for each trip! Its worked out pretty well!Girl, I don't know how you keep all these trips straight! LOL. You're my hero! I can't believe you will be previewing SWGE this weekend! That's crazy!
All your plans for DL seems to be coming together nicely too!
Yeah I think it will be a matter of choosing one over the other for us too! We have the nights to do both but I really wanted to do Steakhouse 55 and I don't think I want to be rushing back into the park for a show!We had to make the fireworks or Fantasmic choice too (we're going in September and they're only shown on weekends), and we ended up choosing Fantasmic. I've read that they show the projections and pipe in the music on the Rivers of America so hopefully we'll get to experience the fireworks a little at least! I'm kind of nervous to go to DLR because it's so unfamiliar compared to WDW and planning is so different!
I'm so excited!!Your trip is so close! Can't wait to hear all about it.
Glad you got your DL flights sorted out. I refuse to fly with a layover because I'm so afraid of missing the connecting flight!
Totally astronomical! We have a trip planned and I don’t know how I am going to explain these flights to DH. Going is fine but coming home whoa, maybe we will just stayBUMMER - the flights for pretty much all of February are astronomical so that pretty much puts a kabosh to that trip. Probably the universe telling me to cool it anyway! hahaha
Oh thats right!! Its bananas!!! Hopefully they'll come down in price or something. Even the point values are sky high, like usually one way for us at most hits 8k and the cheapest flight I found was 10.5k!!Totally astronomical! We have a trip planned and I don’t know how I am going to explain these flights to DH. Going is fine but coming home whoa, maybe we will just stay
Also have a fabulous trip!!
