We’re so excited to get to WDW at the end of May, but it will be Memorial Day weekend, so DW and I have been trying to put together a wise trip plan (with the help of DC and our trusty PassPorter) that will, if not avoid, at least minimize the effects of the sizable crowds.
In general, each day we’ll be heading back to WL after lunch for 2yoDS’s nap. Also, DW and I will be on our own several of the evenings while DMiL watches the kids.
Here’s how it stands:
Arrive midday–Check in at WL
Lunch: TBA (perhaps at DTD, Boardwalk, or Polynesian)
Afternoon: Swim at WL (w/ 6yoDS, while 2yoDS naps, hopefully in room)
[DMiL arrives evening (via Quicksilver)]
Dinner: Artist Point (7:15p PS)
Magic Kingdom day (EMH)
Breakfast: WC (7:30a PS)
Lunch: TBA (light, in park)
Dinner: CP (5:30p PS)
Animal Kingdom day (EMH)
Lunch: TBA (counter service, in AK)
Dinner: WC (DSs and DMiL, 6:30p PS)
CG (DW and I, 8:00p PS)
Breakfast: Chef Mickey (7:40a PS)
Lunch: Land Food Fair (if open; if not, somewhere in park)
Dinner: Cape May Cafe (6:30p PS)
Lunch: 50sPT (12:20p PS)
Here is some of the reasoning about this schedule.
-We want to do MK the first day for sure, and
-we don’t want to finish with AK because we might want to ride Kali River Rapids.
-We assumed that Sundays are the most crowded, and that Epcot is the best park to be in when it’s very crowded (but tell us if we’re wrong!).
A lingering question: Is any given park really a good choice on an EMH day, or does that just make it all the more crowded, making the other parks a better bet?
Thanks for any help!
