    "They must have teeth" - A Covid spring break TR

    It's been a while! I don't have many pictures. It was definitely different. But we still had fun! We moved from NY to MI this summer - "ruining" the life of my 13 y.o DD. Not so much my 11 y.o DS, but he wasn't exactly pleased. And they are still not back in any form of in-person school. So...

    Changing Park Pass during Spring Break?

    Looks like we're going to brave a couple days the last week of March. We have a 1-day we didn't get to use last year, and I'll add 2 more days on. We always end with MK, so I'm booking that as our last day. Kids are fine missing AK this trip (tho depending on hopping reports, we may try that)...

    Do We Still Get to Eat at the Cooking on the Table Place? (Spring Break)

    I’ve posted a couple trip reports, and I’m back with another. I love reading everyone else’s (though I don’t comment a whole lot!), and I figure it’s a good way to get my memories down in writing. We went last year during Spring Break (it wasn’t the week of Easter, but it was about the second...

    Easter Week EMH

    We are hitting WDW for a couple days just after Easter. I totally assumed they'd have made the entire week am EMH at MK, but right now it's just an 8am open. I just got our magic bands in the mail today, so it's close! Is it still possible the MK am EMH will happen? (I'd actually prefer to not...

    RDing FoP during Easter Week

    Just did FP this morning for our quick Easter Week trip and there were no FoP FPes to be found. They've already moved the AK close to 10pm all week, so I'm hoping that means open will stay at 9am. With the crowds, when do I need to arrive to RD FoP? Is 7:45 enough? Also, think there might be a...

    When does Pandora "light up"?

    We are making a quick 2 (maybe 3) day visit the first week of April (Yes, after I swore off going during Spring Break after last year's crowded trip!). About what time does Pandora start lighting up? If sunset is around 7:15? Ideally I'd like to see it in light and dark, so I'm trying to...

    Screw the catchy title - I'm still recovering from the crowds! (March 11-18)

    This is my third annual Disney trip and my second trip report. I wrote the last as a way for me to remember things, so decided to write this one for the same reasons. And I know even if I don’t comment on people’s TRs, I love reading them and seeing the pictures. I hope you enjoy mine! As I...

    Via Napoli or F&G booths?

    Next Th we have a lunch reservation at Via Napoli. My husband is a NY pizza snob, so I am sure he will enjoy it. But given that we have access to great pizza all the time, would trying F&G booths be more exciting? We'll be on the Mexico side of WS that day and Josh reviewed a lot of things...

    March Hours Updated - I'm screwed!

    They decided to open MK at 8am the week I'm there (3/12-18). We had a PPO BOG to ride 7DMT on Monday. And I stupidly dropped my FP for it b/c I planned to ride after breakfast. And we planned to RD Tues also. I'm not a morning person, this is gonna suck! If I don't get to BTMRR until 8:30 on...

    Skipper's or Tony's?

    I know, I know - totally different! I need an in park dinner for after break one day. I have picky eater kids. I see on the Skipper's menu that the kids' mac & cheese says "traditional". I thought I remembered it was a smaller version of the adult pasta bake with the bechamel and spices. Have...

    How exactly do I refresh?

    I just linked my March tix into MDE. As I'm fine tuning my plans, I decided to pull up today (as I know it's busy like when I'll be there) to see what FP were available. I clicked MK, and Space showed none. So I scrolled to 5pm, scrolled down to Space and it showed a 10pm. I clicked on Space...

    AM EMH at Epcot

    I book FP soon, so trying to finalize some plans. I avoid EMH b/c I'm not a morning person and doubt I could get everyone there for the whole thing. BUT, I'm now considering it for one of our Epcot days (solely b/c it makes our last day a little easier). I could likely get everyone there by...

    AK afternoons during busy times

    We are going March 12-18 - the first week of Spring Break season. Crowds via Dave at yourfirstvisit and Kenny the Pirate are heavy (as the TX schools will be off that week), but they won't yet be in the 'insane' category. Seeing as I've only ever been late January, I'm more than a little...

    Frontierland at 9:30ish, heavy crowds?

    What will BTMRR and Splash be like around 9:30am on a Sunday, mid-March, CL about 8 or 9? Will I be able to get one (maybe both?) in without a FP? Was planning to arrive MCO on Sun 3/12 (heavy crowds), but looking at flights, I would actually save money by flying in late Sat night and saying at...

    EPCOT AM or PM

    I just realized my ADR day is coming up in a week or so. Apparently I should get an idea of where I will be when... In parks Sun March 12-Fri March 17. While we have a whole EPCOT day later in our week, on Monday I'm doing a bit of time at EPCOT. That day we want to get in: Joy/Sadness M&G TT...

    AKV but not going to Animal Kingdom?

    We are planning to go down in March 2017. I've already booked myself and DD9, DS7 in POP Weds. 3/8 - Sat 3/-11. DH and 20 y.o Step-Daughter will join us Sat 3/11, we'll move to a Jr suite at CSR, and all leave on Weds. 3/15. Well, now it sounds like SD might like some more days there, so I'm...

    People joining trip late - FP booking questions

    I should know this...but I'm blanking and can't figure out how to google search the question to get an answer... When we next go (March 2017, but hey, I'm a planner!), my young kids and I will arrive on March 8. DH and step-daughter won't arrive until March 11. We are only doing one Epcot day...

    "So I guess this is our life now" - Jan 2016 Trip Report

    I started writing my own TR for personal memories that I was just going to save on my computer. But mqwho just started posting one from a trip that took place in Sept. I enjoy reading all the TRs and hers being 'late' doesn't stop me from enjoying it, so I decided to share mine here, too...

    Those crazy January crowds

    Just thought I'd relay how following the RD touring plan philosophy really does make for a great day... I keep telling people (here and on a FB board) my great morning the other day, and even Josh was surprised I'd done as much as I said. So then I started thinking maybe I was totally off and...

    Railroad and FoF

    Is there a rough estimate to when the railroad stops before the FoF parade? While I already knew MK was Most Rec'd on our arrival day (Th 1/21), I now see the CL is 1!! A 1!?! (Though it will probably "feel" like a 5 :RpS_rolleyes: /sarcasm) We land at 12:30, renting a car. Planning to drop...
