With 89 days to go, I'm starting to pull together detailed plans for each day. BACKGROUND: 6 of us going 9/21-9/29 - me, wife, kids (5, 7), grandparents. With these detailed plans, I don't expect to follow them 100% -- but I want to have some framework to inform some of our decisions throughout the day. I also mapped out the Day 2 to follow a logical path around the park.
What I'd like the group to comment on are:
-- Does the path I've outlined throughout MK on Day 2 make sense?
-- Where in my plans are the timeframes not realistic? (i.e., not giving us enough time to get from one attraction to another, not allowing for enough time to queue for an attraction, etc.)
-- What are key activities, events, etc. that I have left out (this is only Day 1 at MK. We're planning a Day 2, also, so what we missed will be included on Day 2. Know that I don't have the parades included)
