We are planning our tenth wedding anniversary trip to Walt Disney World, which will be my husband's second trip to the Florida resort (and my 7th). We live 8 miles away from Disneyland and visit the original park at least once a month but will appreciate your suggestions to help make this trip magical. Our first trip together was for our honeymoon so are really looking forward to going back to celebrate this milestone.
We were able to take advantage of the passholder discounts so are staying at the Contemporary Resort (our first choice hotel) instead of the Dolphin. On our first trip, we stayed at one of the DTD hotels and were stranded by their buses twice so want to avoid that experience.
Here are the plans we've made so far:
Friday, Dec. 9: Fly on Southwest (8 AM-6:30 PM) & stay at Hyatt @ Orlando Airport
Sat., Dec. 10: Take DME to Contemporary Resort & check in; Epcot (dinner @ either
Teppan Edo or Tokyo Dining); Illuminations
Sun., Dec. 11: Magic Kingdom, including MVMCP (late lunch @ Crystal Palace)
Mon., Dec. 12: DHS (lunch @ Sci Fi Diner), Osbourne Lights
Tues., Dec. 13: AK (lunch @ Yak & Yeti; dinner @ CA Grill during Holiday Wishes)
Wed., Dec. 14: R&R/Catch-up with lunch @ T-Rex & dinner @ Coral Reef
Thurs, Dec. 15: Chef Mickey's for brunch; possibly a park or DTD; DME @ 3 for 6:15
One question: where are the zebra domes at AK Lodge available if you don't eat a full meal? We're thinking about going to Sanaa's Lounge & foraging for the domes but have never been to AK before. Please help!
Thanks so much for your suggestions!!
