Well, we have begun packing for our quick getaway, and in true Disney planning fashion– our plans have changed slightly.
Not too much though, which is a good thing.
On our first full day, I am fully expecting to head into the parks with the kids. Let Mike sleep in and have some time with them before I won’t for a few days. They have their Fast Passes set for later in the day with Mike, so we will wing it. As most of you know, that isn’t my happy place at all– but… sometimes you do strange things to keep your kids happy.
On our last free full day, that I have been informed is now commitment free, so my family booked a waterfront brunch at Narcoossee’s at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa. It was a toss up between this or attending the first Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party as we are attending the very first Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party this year too. We had set up Fast Passes in Animal Kingdom on that day previously, so we decided to keep our Pandora at Night plans with hopes to maybe see Happy Hallowishes that night from the marina at the Grand when we get back. The kids and Mike also had an early dinner reservation at the Rainforest Cafe, which has become a tradition for them to visit while I am working.
Before we leave the next day, we will need to eat. I was able to reserve an early lunch at Disney Spring’s T-Rex, cancelling our previous reservation at the Grand Floridian Cafe. Not sure if we will keep that, cancel and reschedule the Cafe, or cancel and head to Gasparilla’s (the Grand Floridian’s Quick Service option). T-Rex isn’t an easy reservation to snag and my family hasn’t seen Disney Springs since it’s transformation (plus I have a few dinosaur lovers in my family). That said, not sure we want to be that rushed on our departure day as our flight home leaves at 4:20pm. So, there are still a few changes to be made…
