Y’all, just finished this trip and it was pretty fabulous. Thanks for the encouragement to taking an adults only trip. Finding same day FPs for two is pretty great also.
Hooray! So glad you had a great time. Did you find it a much different experience with just the two you of from a trip with everyone?Y’all, just finished this trip and it was pretty fabulous.

Yes! It was really different. The only time we went to park opening was for the extra extra magic hours at HS, we had leisurely dinners (and brunch!), without a thought about a kids menu or what they would prefer, and we saw all the shows we wanted to see without any dissenters. While there were times we missed being with the kids, it was nice to have a more relaxing, adult time. I feel like I’ve actually been on vacation and was not exhausted at the end. We hadn’t been out of town without the kids in probably 8 or 9 years, and even then it was for a conference and my husband came along for the trip, so it was a very nice change of pace.Hooray!

Prior to the party, we had FPs for Buzz, 7DMT, and JC. We did CoP and TTA prior to the party as well. During the party, we rode HM, PotC, BTMRR and Space. All had pretty minimal waits, maybe 20 at most, pirates was the longest, but we were moving the whole time with no FP returners to stop the line. We also sat in the Laugh Floor for awhile. We then caught the 9ish parade, watched the fireworks, and the Villain show. After that we caught the beginning of the 11ish parade in frontier land, since we missed that before. Once we started seeing floats we had already seen, we hustled out to catch the bus back to our resort. Which arrived and left quickly, thank goodness.Sounds like a wonderful trip! Thanks for the update. Your take on the Halloween party is encouraging. We ended up buying tickets for MVMCP for our couples trip in December, even though we're going to the party in November with the kids too. With all the posts about crazy-crowded-sold-out Halloween parties I was starting to worry that the waits for rides would be prohibitive.
