Our Disney Journey – The Small Issues Weblog

We took the youngsters to DISNEY WORLD in Might and I’ve by no means felt such an incredible feeling of accomplishment than what I felt getting on the airplane to come back dwelling.

We had a good time, and actually designed this journey to align with issues we knew we’d care about.

Justin and I invited my dad and mom to come back alongside, not solely for an additional set of arms but additionally to expertise Disney with the youngsters. I’m so glad they joined us and made these recollections with us!

We stayed at an AirBNB about 12/quarter-hour from the parks. I can’t categorical how happy we have been with this determination. I waffled between staying on property in a set, and staying in an airBNB, and I can say, arms down, that the selection to remain off-property in an AirBNB was proper for us. Not solely did it save us many hundreds of {dollars}, it gave every youngster their very own mattress, in addition to a non-public room for Justin and myself, in addition to my dad and mom. The home we stayed in had a pool within the lanai, and that felt incredible after lengthy days on the parks.

The factor about visiting Disney is that there are virtually a crippling quantity of selections to make, however in case you’re searching for the push to remain off property — that is it.

We deliberate to go to 3 parks, 1 park a day (aka no Park Hopper). We deliberate to eat all breakfasts at dwelling, which we did, and seize lunch at no matter park we have been at that day. We ate dinner both at dwelling, ordering carry-out or popping in to an informal restaurant.

All of this meal planning went swimmingly, and I’m very glad I didn’t really feel rushed at a park to get to a pre-made reservation. If there’s one factor about visiting Disney, it’s that you simply should be versatile! It labored for us to maintain the purpose affordable (and that purpose being to go to the parks) and let every part else simply occur because it did.

We rented a 7 passenger van which allowed our complete crew to pile into one automobile for parking. Parking is nicely organized and simple.

We rented a stroller for every day we visited a park and that was important. Not solely did it stash our stuff, however Emily was fairly weary from all of the strolling round. We used Genie+ to pre-plan a number of rides we wished to verify we hit and whereas it took a fairly whole lot of prep work to attempt to perceive the system, it ended up working high quality. Disney Solid Members have been extremely useful and type each time we had questions on something on the My Disney Expertise app or with Genie+.

The preferred rides had lengthy strains, as anticipated, however we discovered that the highest of the morning was one of the best time for shorter strains. We’re all early risers so it made essentially the most sense to go to the parks within the mornings and keep till we have been tapped out. There was a notable change in crowds and warmth by about 2:00pm every day, and that was simply across the similar time that we had exhausted ourselves and have been prepared to go away.

The one factor we skipped out on was returning to Magic Kingdom for the fireworks at night time. We have been all exhausted and I really didn’t assume my youngsters cared sufficient about fireworks to make it such a late night time for them. To not point out the crowds can be monumental and attempting to entry the car parking zone on the shut of the park sounded a little bit aggravating.

Past that, we had a good time and I used to be actually blown away by how nice my youngsters did. It was *sizzling* and sunny, and we did a ton of strolling round. All 3 of the youngsters rolled with no matter was occurring, and had a very nice time. I’m so grateful for that.

To be trustworthy, I believed that I would depart this journey being able to plan our subsequent go to again to Disney however I’m surprisingly feeling very glad with this journey and can be pleased to name it a day with Disney journeys. After all, issues change and because the youngsters grow old their curiosity in visiting Disney could develop, so we’ll simply cross that bridge after we get there.

Fast Notes in regards to the issues I’m glad we did:

-Genie+ may be very useful for reserving rides

-Reminiscence Maker package deal is good as a result of you’ll be able to depend on the professional’s to seize photographs all through all of the parks.

-Costume for a piece out. Athletic shorts and tank tops. Sneakers. Minimal or no make-up. Disney is a mission, and I’m *so* glad I didn’t need to fuss with operating mascara or uncomfortable denim shorts on the water rides.

We will be happy to hear your thoughts
