It’s time to start our park planning. We’ve got all of our Dining Reservations made. We’ve got all of our hotel reservations made. We’ve got our airline tickets picked out. Now it’s time to move on to the really fun stuff.
Dad, do we really need a plan for each day and each park?
No, it’s fine for you to just choose a park to visit each morning when you get up. It’s fine for you to just wander aimlessly around the park and ride whatever ride strikes your fancy when you reach it. Don’t worry about anything. Sounds like the Perfect Walt Disney World Vacation.
Yep, you could do that. Millions of people each year do. (That’s why the average visitor to the Magic Kingdom sees 9 attractions in a day. Dad does 9 by about noon most trips.) Go right ahead. Walk down Main Street at about 11 am with your maps all spread out trying to find Test Track (it will be hard to find, it’s in Epcot).
Yes, Dad thinks it’s important that you have at least a plan that includes which park you will be in on each day. A general idea of what order you want to ride the big line rides. And a list of attractions you want to skip. Yes, I said skip. When Dad and Mrs. Mom arrive in October, they will skip Stitch’s Great Escape along with a few other attractions. We both hate the Stitch ride and nothing can make us ride it just like nothing can make Dad ride the Mad Tea Party ride. (Mrs. Mom will why I go get us some soft drinks.)
So this week we are going to start planning the Palooza. We’ll walk through the steps that go into choosing which park to be in. We’ll start looking at each of the lands and what can be skipped. We will look at one land or section each week. This week it’s Main Street USA.
This is gonna be a paarrrtttyyy!
