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

    4/2 Afternoon hop to Epcot. It was SO crowded, but we did more than others I read about that day. We left the Dolphin just before 2. There was a Friendship boat was at the dock so we saved our feet and took that. The IG entrance was easy, but WOW - there were a lot of people there! DD's...

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

    Day 2 - Fri 4/2. Got about 30 more minutes of sleep b/c skipped the rise BG try today. Learned our lesson on the Dolphin store breakfast line yesterday and just ate some granola bars on our walk to DHS (only when no other people were around!) Left the hotel around 7:40. Strolled to DHS...

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

    It was better than I thought it might be! And DD mentioned she enjoyed not having the FP b/c it felt a little more spontaneous. But, she also said she missed the efficiency of a "Josh trip". 😄 We've never waited more than 25-30 mins for a ride even during Spring Break until this trip.

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

    Yeah, I've never attempted Star Tours and never will. Also why DS didn't get to go on MFSR (I use the abbreviation to avoid the apostrophe issue!!). DD and I both aren't fans of screens, so we decided to skip it. I offered to walk the line with DS, but that's an odd ride to do alone I think...

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

    After a couple hours of rest at Dolphin (too tired from the early alarm to hit the pool which was a bummer b/c it was too cold our other days). We took the bus to AK. Not much of a wait for it. There aren't specific pick up locations at the stop, so we just stood apart from others. I wondered...

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

    Alarm went off at 6:45. We were going to walk over to DHS around 7:30 regardless of if we got the boarding group, so we just started getting ready. Around 6:55 DS and I went to sit in the hall 4 doors down from our room (I only had 1 data bar inside my room but 4-5 down there). I went to the...

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

    I feel like the all the reading and research made it much more stressful sounding than it actually was. The 1pm practices from home definitely made me realize it wasn't as elusive as I thought it would be.

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

    I'd been practicing getting a Rise BG at the 1pm drop for weeks. Always successful (getting to the "not so fast" screen). I tried again on M and Tu while in The Villages, FL and got the dreaded all full message! 😱😬 But I did a little research and found the ride had been having issues those...

    "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?

    Bummer about the change - I wondered the same (especially if I was willing to give up the DHS day!). BUT, success! I got the hoppers added. I think b/c my tickets are good 4/1 - 4/4 and 4/3 & 4 still show Epcot available it wasn't an issue. I think the person I heard from had tix only for days...

    Changing Park Pass during Spring Break?

    Well crap. I saw availability getting low for our Friday and decided I should bite the bullet and change second DHS reservation to Epcot - gone! And now I've heard reports that I won't be able to add hoppers to my tix b/c there are days with no passes left. Ugh. I don't need 2 days at DHS! 🤦‍♀️

    Parking at Contemporary or Grand Floridian

    Ok, ok. I got my breakfast reservation at The Wave for 7:45am so I can take a legit Uber to CR. I'll plan to get there at 7:20 and cross fingers that they seat us at 7:30. Next question - can I ask the server upon ordering to bring to go boxes so we can pack up and take with us if needed? (I'll...

    Parking at Contemporary or Grand Floridian

    Oh that's right, too! You get stuck at the entry booths, right? That was the reason I needed to get dropped at GF/CR!

    Parking at Contemporary or Grand Floridian

    I'd also like to see the new walkway. But, yes, avoiding public transport is what I'd like to try to do. I understand Uber is "public transport" as well, but a lesser risk I'm willing to deal with. I'm staying in the Boardwalk area so I can walk to 2 resorts. I wanted to walk to MK as well since...

    Tom vs Josh

    I've taken to watching these on 1.75-2x speed. The other day I forgot to change it, so when I heard it on normal speed I thought I'd actually hit the slowed down .5 speed. It felt like sloth speed from Zootopia. :LOL:

    Parking at Contemporary or Grand Floridian

    But that's the thing - you can't actually even get through the gate without some sort of reservation right? I'd be fine pulling up to the GF and walking through the lobby, looking around a bit before I headed on to the walkway. But if I can't even get to the front door without a reservation...

    Parking at Contemporary or Grand Floridian

    Ah, I wondered about that too. The lower X appears to be the entrance for the Convention Center parking lot, so that doesn't seem as "scandalous". I think it's a bit silly of Disney to require me to have a reservation to have an Uber driver pull up to the main entrance and drop me off, though...

    Parking at Contemporary or Grand Floridian

    At the risk of sounding slightly crazy... Looking at satellite map of GF - could you ask Uber to drop you off up Grand Floridian Way - past the official GF entrance and then just walk up the (what appears to be a resort exit) road (bottom X) or through the parking lot, past the Convention...

    Changing Park Pass during Spring Break?

    I hope blogmickey is right! Just looked this morning and all of March and April are fully green now. There were a couple full weeks of both of those months where DHS was gone when I checked yesterday.

    Changing Park Pass during Spring Break?

    Thanks. I've been checking it now and then too. I noticed maybe last week that the whole week after Easter showed no DHS availability and then a few days later, there was availability. I'm guessing they are increasing passes? So far my 1pm boarding group practices have been successful, so I'm...
