We had a great time! There were five of us - me (age 30), my SIL (age 24), her friend (age 25), my friend (age 30), and her husband (age 35) - and we stayed in two renovated rooms at Pop Century. We got to Pop around 1 pm on Friday and headed to Disney Springs around 2:30. This was our only long wait for a bus on the whole trip...we waited 30 minutes for a bus to show up. I knew going in that it was going to be crowded, and that was very much the case. We did the Christmas Tree Trail, which was cute but crowded, and met up with some of my friends that live in the area for dinner at Raglan Road at 6:30. The food and drinks were great, and the entertainment is always fun. The service left something to be desired, but overall it was a good experience despite an inattentive server. On Saturday, we went to Epcot. On a holiday weekend, which also happened to be the last weekend of Food and Wine. Y'all, it was CROWDED. With good time management, we still managed to do all the rides we intended to do. Our FPs were for Living with the Land (which we didn't need...the standby time was only 5 minutes), Spaceship Earth (which we *did* need...it was starting to rain and the standby line jumped to 60 minutes as we scanned in), and FEA. We also watched Reflections of China, the Voices of Liberty, and the American Adventure in between eating from the Food and Wine booths. And really, despite the long lines for the booths, they moved pretty quickly. I had originally wanted to stop at a few more of the booths, but ended up nixing them because of the lines. We ate at Spice Road Table for dinner (checked in at 8 for an 8:30 reservation and we were seated immediately...the outdoor seating never filled to capacity while we were there). Everything tasted amazing and they were super accommodating about us staying to watch IllumiNations, even encouraging us to move to an empty table closer to the railing when the show as about to start. Sunday: We went to Magic Kingdom. We did seven rides between 8:10 and our first FP at 9:45. We had lunch at Columbia Harbour House-the lobster roll was great, but the chips were really greasy, and they seemed to be having issues with mobile order pick-ups. The crowds picked up after lunch, but we still rode everything we intended to ride. We checked in almost an hour early for dinner at BOG and were seated about 10 minutes before our original reservation time. This dinner was outstanding! The food was great and the server (Saleem) was perfect. After dinner, we headed out, as MVMCP was starting and we weren't staying for it. Monday: This was our AK day. We walked on to NRJ, which was pretty but definitely not worth any kind of long wait imo. We also walked on to Everest, Primeval Whirl, and Dinosaur before EMH ended. Our only extensive wait was to meet Mickey and Minnie (posted wait time was 35 minutes, the Lines app had an expected wait time of 21 minutes, but we actually waited 45 minutes). Lunch was at Flame Tree Barbecue, which was surprisingly good. Crowds were picking up and we were exhausted after lunch, so we watched Festival of the Lion King, did the Safari (with a FP), and watched Finding Nemo before heading back to the resort to pick up our bags and start the 4-hour drive home. Overall, it was a great trip, with very few complaints (and none that I would consider major complaints)! I was expecting higher crowd levels because of the holiday weekend/end of Jersey week/last weekend of F&W, and it still ended up being more crowded than I expected. With good time management, though, we did everything we intended to do. There were a couple of outstanding CM interactions that I intend to email guest relations about (Saleem at BOG, Matt at Flight of Passage), and we never came across a CM with a bad or indifferent attitude.
