Back to The World

It’s official. Wdwprince is going back to WDW.

The dates are Sept 20-24. Originally I was planning on going the last week in Sept like I’ve done for the last 2 years. I was intent on staying at my resort of choice for this trip, the Swan/Dolphin. When I went to book today, both resorts were sold out.

I’ve decided to go with the flow. I booked the trip a week earlier. The money I saved by shortening the trip, I put toward an annual pass. So even though I won’t be able to do both Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party and Food and Wine Festival in one trip, like last year, I will be able to make as many short trips as I like with my annual pass.

So maybe I’ll go to Food and Wine and Mickey’s Christmas Party in November! I love creative thinking.

I’m already planning and will be asking for some suggestions as the date nears.

Update 7/28

I’ve come up with an itinerary for my trip. As of now it goes like this-

Monday Sept 20

  • Pick up Annual Pass and MNSSHP tix at Magic Kingdom
  • MK from noon-3pm Lunch at Columbia Harbor House.
  • Rent a boat from Sammy Duvall and cruise Seven Seas Lagoon until 4:30
  • Back to Dolphin Resort. Swim in pool. Late lunch at The Fountain or Cabana Bar.
  • Epcot 7-9pm. Dinner at Tokyo Dining or Flying Fish. OR go to Hollywood Studios 7-10pm for Extra Magic Hours.

Tuesday Sept 21

  • Breakfast at Fresh Mediterranean
  • Animal Kingdom 9am-3pm then Dolphin pool OR Surfing at Typhoon Lagoon, stay until 3pm.
  • Spirit of Aloha Dinner Show 5:15pm at Poly
  • Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party. Late dinner Pecos Bill.

Wednesday Sept 22

  • Kouzzina for breakfast.
  • Dolphins in Depth in Epcot stay until 2pm. Lunch at San Angel Inn.
  • Dolphin Resort pool until 4:00
  • MK 430-8pm. Dinner at Liberty Inn.
  • Downtown Disney-Characters in Flight, shopping 9-11pm

Thursday Sept 23

  • Breakfast at Fresh Mediterranean
  • Open choice of park morning-afternoon
  • Parasail at Contemporary 3:30pm
  • Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party. Dinner at Tony’s Town Square.

This is my itinerary as of now. I may add a tour or event. Since my trip is so short, I’m not sure I want to commit 3 hours or more to a tour even though I really want to try one. You may have noticed that my itinerary is MK heavy. That is not by chance. I’ve decided I need to be there at least once every day of my trip, lol. And yes I’m going twice to MNSSHP and I can’t wait. Although I’ve done Spirit of Aloha, that is also worth a repeat visit even though I could be trying something different. I like it that much.  So that is how things stand for now. Any suggestions or comments are welcome.

See ya real soon!

PS Rumor Alert. As I sit here in Starbucks in the theater district of Times Square typing this post, I over heard a guy near me talking to another. One of the guys is the lead actor in the puppet musical Avenue Q. (No, they’re not muppets). The other was telling him that his next show would be with Disney. And it’s Freaky Friday. Has anyone else heard of Freaky Friday coming to Broadway? You heard it here first.

  1. Sounds like a fun itinerary! I like the idea of going to WDW more often throughout the year, for shorter periods. That way, you can hit all the big events WDW hosts. Of course, it helps if you can get cheap airfare to Orlando….
