My husband and I are returning to EPM on September 7-13th, and we’re beyond excited. We haven’t been since our first trip, our honeymoon, in October 2009. Too long!
We went to ERC in June 2011, and loved it, but are thrilled to be returning to EPM. I’ve been reading on these forums and got up the courage to ask my own questions.
I know a lot of you are frequent EPM travelers (lucky!). What’s “new” at EPM over the last few years? What’s changed for the better? For the worse? In your opinion, what’s a must-do?
We’re staying in an EC regular suite. We did the EC Rooftop Suite on our honeymoon, but didn’t find it particularly worth the money this time.
A bit about us: early 30s, no kids (not that there are any kids here anyway), we go on vacations to relax. We don’t really enjoy going on a vacation then being so tired at the end of it that we feel we need ANOTHER vacation to rest. We enjoy some alcoholic beverages, but have the hard partying days well behind us.
When last we were at EPM, Basmati wasn’t there yet – it is now, and I keep hearing it’s fantastic. We love spicy Indian food – is the food spicy, or are there spicy options available?
One last (silly) thing – I love my caffeine in the morning, but am not a coffee drinker. I always drink my unsweetened iced tea in the morning – when we were at EPM/ERC, I wasn’t able to get anything other than something that tasted instant, but to be fair, I didn’t look that hard. Is there another place I can go other than the main buffet for some good iced tea?
