Hello everyone! My name is Gustavo and it is my first time here in the forum. The reason I’m writing is because I need your help to planning my trip to the Walt Disney world Resort on the first week of December. I live in Brazil and it has been 15 years since my last trip to the Orlando’s resort (I’ve been in Disneyland in 2004 though) and this time I’m taking my parents and my brother with me so they can visit it for the first time! So I am really trying my best to plan everything in advance so they can have a magical moment in one of my favorite places on earth!
I’m going to post my itinerary here and I would like to ask for your help deciding the order of the attraction trough the day and also some tips or advices. Thank you VERY MUCH in advance!!!!
DAY 01 - ARRIVAL, DOWNTOWN DISNEY and DISNEY PORT ORLEANS RIVERSIDE RESORT
For this day I planned visiting downtown Disney and having dinner at the Disney Port Orleans Riverside Resort, in the restaurant Boatwright's Dining Hall at 19:30.
DAY 02 - Disney Hollywood Studios and Magic Kingdom
At this day I’ll be visiting Disney Hollywood Studios till 5 pm and the will head to the Magic Kingdom to the VERY MARRY CHRISTMAS PARTY. At Disney Hollywood Studios I intend to visit the following attractions (and here is where I need your help on planning the order of the rides and if you guys have any other suggestions): Muppet Vision 3D (I’m a big Muppet fan), Rock and Roller Coaster (my parents will skip this one), sounds dangerous, star tours, studio backlot tour, the great movie ride, the twilight zone tower of terror (my parents are probably skipping this one too), toy story mania, Walt Disney’s one man’s dream, voyage of the little mermaid, the magic of Disney animation.
At the Very Merry Christmas Party part of the day I have nothing planed yet, but the fact that I have a reservation at the Liberty Tree Tavern for the dinner. What attractions (if any) should I ride at this night? What shows should I watch? What should I do during this night?! SO MANY QUESTIONS!! Arghhhh! Hehe.
DAY 03 - EPCOT CENTER
For EPCOT, what I have planned so far is that we are having lunch at ROSE AND CROWN PUB at 14:05 pm, giving entitlement to preferential place in the CANDLELIGHT PROCESSION at the 5 o'clock show and latter in the day we will watch the ILLUMINATIONS fireworks. Other than that, we pretty much would like to visit all the future world attractions and the entire world showcase pavilion. As we are going to have a second day at EPCOT, we can divide the attraction in both.
December 05 - MAGIC KINGDOM
This day is entirely dedicated to the Magic Kingdom. At 7:50pm we have reservations to
the Cinderella Castle Royal Table. The attractions we are looking forward riding are: It’s a small world, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin, Jungle Cruise, Liberty Square Riverboat, Mickey’s Philhar Magic, Peter Pan’s Flight, Pirates of the Caribbean, Snow White’s Scary Adventure, Space Mountain, Splash Mountain, Stitch’s Great Escape, Swiss Family Tree House, The enchanted Tiki Room, The Hall of Presidents, The Haunted Mansion, The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, Tomorrowland Transit Authority, Walt Disney Railroad, Walt Disney’s Carrousel of Progress and if there is enough time Tom Sawyer’s Island. We also plan to watch the Spectro magic Parade and the Holiday Wishes.
December 06 - Animal Kingdom and Disney Hollywood Studios
Animal Kingdom from 9 to 18:00. Dinner at the Grand Floridian Cafe, located at Disney's Grand Floridian resort as 19:40. Disney Hollywood Studios from 20 to 23 hours.
Attractions we are willing to visit at the Animal Kingdom are: Dinosaur, Discovery Island Trail, Expedition Everest, It’s Tough to be a Bug, Kali River Rapid (we are not sure about this one, since it will be winter and we are not willing to getting soaking wet), Kilimanjaro Safari, Maharajah Jungle Trek, Pangani Forest exploration Trail, Primeval whirl, The Oasis Exhibit, The Tree of Life, Festival of the Lion King, Finding Nemo the musical,
DAY 07 - Epcot Center and Magic Kingdom
EPCOT in the morning and Magic Kingdom at night. Dinner at Whispering Canyon Café at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort at 19:55. Here we can go at those rides previously mentioned that couldn’t be visited on both park’s first day.
Okay folks, that is our plan! Are we on the right trek? Do you have any other suggestions? Could you please helping me decide what attraction riding at each time of the day, or the attraction order to go and to which should we get a fastpass to?
Once again, thank you very much for the patience of reading all this and for helping me planning my trip!
