I have a feeling this is going to be long...
As my husband and I were bumped off of a New York flight earlier this summer and we were given to free tickets by the airline to fly anywhere in the continental US, we've decided to go to Disneyworld for our first time this December. I'm so excited!
I've been reading TA religiously for the past week or so and getting helpful hints from you all and this is what I'm thinking...
First of all, we're both early 50's, but think we're about 25. It's just the two of us going, no kids, no grandkids. I work for Marriott, so as much as we'd love to stay on WDW resort property, doesn't make sense with my Marriott employee discount!
I was thinking of making reservations at either the Courtyard,Fairfield or Springfield Suites at Marriott Village. Any thoughts? Or would Orlando World Center be better? Also, We'll be renting a car for the week.
Here's our tentative itinerary:
Saturday - Redeye to Orlando
Sunday - Hotel check-in, relax / nap (we're 50!!) and then maybe hit Downtown Disney for a late lunch and then to MGM for the Osborne Light Show.
Monday - Epcot and then stay to see IllumiNation. Try to book Rose & Crown for dinner to see IllumiNation
Tuesday - Husband wants to golf (me shop!) then off to the Magic Kingdom about noon and stay for Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party
Wednesday - Animal Kingdom and then maybe Downtown Disney for dinner
Thursday - Hubby golfing again in morning and maybe back to Magic Kingdom
Friday - MGM Studios
Saturday - Take a drive around WDW to checkout the resorts to see holiday decorations. Possibly back to Epcot or Animal Kingdom for afternoon or evening.
Is this too much? Is it too boring?
Have I missed anything? Being that we're from Southern California, we already have our own Sea World and Universal. We wanted to make this all about Disney.
