    another ??

    ok i was thinking being at the a park all day then resting for 2-3 hours and then heading over to the MNSSHP is going to be very tiring..

    what do ya'll think of me doing this??

    doing a park on my arrival day rather than resting.. something like MGM where we have already been and their isnt much my lil girl can do but we get to catch the stunt show which we really wanna see because we missed it last time.. so we go to mgm on the first day and on the day of MNSSHP just rest and do the pool and maybe go to get our last min souvears then go to our dinner at 5 at the liberty and we'll be all ready for the long evening.. i wanna make sure my daughter is really rested and ready for the evening..

    so it would go

    29th oct
    MONDAY
    MGM and Ck in day

    30th oct
    TUESDAY
    Epcot

    31st oct
    WENESDAY
    Animal kingdom

    1st nov
    THURSDAY
    Magic Kingdom

    2nd nov
    FRIDAY
    rest and relax for MNSSHP

    3rd nov
    SATURDAY
    Ck out

    does that sound better than trying to fit MGM into that friday with the MNSSHP??

    also since were going to the party on Nov 2 instead of Halloween to try and bet the crowds.. is there anything else going on around either at the boardwalk or DTD or the campground or a resort something fun to go do that evening.. its our 4 yr anni on top of that too.. but keep in mind we are going to have our 2 yr old so romantic getways are out....LOL

    thanks for all the info in advance!!

    The BoardWalk offers Trick or Treating Halloween night. At least they did on my last MNSSH/F&WF trips.

    I've done MNSSHP on days were we didn't do much before hand and on days where we did another park. I preferred the days where we either took a several hour break before going to the party and/or just lounged around the resort before the party. They day we ran around Epcot and went back to our room to quickly change for MNSSHP was tiring.

    Also since Nov 2nd is a Friday, I'm not so sure you'll be beating the crowds as Fridays tend to be busier with MNSSHP in my experience. Hopefully because it is after Halloween, it won't be an issue for you guys.

    well i think either day you end up doing mgm youll be tired...you either go after a long car ride or before a big party...lol...so thats up to you...i guess i would have to say do whats easier for your daughter...hopefully mgm shouldnt be too tiring no matter what day you go---w/ the stunt show, little mermaid show, & beauty and the beast show you all should have some adequate time to sit down and rest...remember if you go to mgm the day that you get there and you decide on the day of MNSSHP that youre in the mood for a park you can always add a day to your tickets while youre there...i guess it also depends on what time you plan on arriving at your hotel to check in too---if its going to be later in the day i would say wait on mgm or you may not have time to do everything there taht you want to...its a tough decision but whatever you choose youre going to have fun!!!

    The parks may be busier during the time that your here slightly. Its the weekend after when most northern schools have "teachers convention" or "fall break." The last weekend in October is an extremely busy time at Walt Disney World... so I'd recommend possibly adding another day if you have the money fo rit. This way you have an extra day incase you missed something!

    It sounds like a good plan. You could use the time before the party to do your Holiday shopping at DTD, get it done early and be the envy of all when in Decemebr they are running around all frazzled.
