180 days came around about October time just after I finished moving our accommodation about. One difference this trip as we have the studio, we normally always have a cooked breakfast in the room but this year we will go out for breakfast.

Also we normally book a TS every night and by the time we leave I'm honestly sick of it so this time I have only booked 4 dinners before we go. I've adjusted our plans back and forward but we have pretty much landed now:

Arrival day Friday: We will have to dogs or pizza in the room.
Day 1 Saturday: The Boathouse for Dinner
Day 2 Sunday AK day Tusker House Lunch
Day 3 Monday AK day Sanaa lunch
Day 4 Studios day, Boma breakfast
Day 5 move to Polynesian, Chef Mickey dinner
Day 6 MK day, Kona Cafe Breakfast, Bahama Breeze dinner
Day7 Epcot day, the Wave Breakfast, Flying Fish Dinner
Day 8 Epcot day, Garden Grill Breakfast, Il Mulano dinner
Day 9 MK day Crystal Palace breakfast, Smokey Bones dinner
Day 10 Breakfast at Perkins then drive to the Port.

That is some crazy reorganizing. Seems like you have it under control and found a way to make it all work together with the various parts. Nice job with ADRs as you have some faves of mine.

We are actually planning on going at least 3 times but I didn't want to repeat myself. It's always the first place we go after arriving with Walmart being the second

Buying tickets was a big risk, I didn't want to buy them too early in case we got cancelled again but also wanted them bought well before 60 days.

Nowadays we tend to go to the parks for much shorter bursts. Last trip we did most days 3 FP+ then done. This time I may take a similar strategy with rides and try and see if we can get more FP+ for later but we will do more shows etc.

Believe it or not we have never watched Illuminations. I always plan to but usually we do Epcot first as we stay at OKW or SSR the first few nights and do Studios and Epcot from there and frankly with the jet lag I don't adage to 9pm.

This time is different for me as I fly from Australia not UK so the Jet lag is different. More likely to be up late and sleep late. So we have mid morning or afternoon FP+ and a plan to see Illumination, fantastic and Happily ever after at MK.

We are only staying 10 nights and we like to miss the parks the first day and the day we switch resorts. This gives me 7 park days.

I compared the price of the 14 day unlimited UK tickets versus the 7 for 5 DVC offer. I decided we wouldn't bother park hopping and we won't do the watermarks this time just the pools so the 7 for 5 was quite a bit cheaper. I bought the DVC tickets just before Christmas and all linked up straightaway.

We also have 3 nights at Universal. We will get express pass through our Hotel so we didn't need that. We always buy park to park and go park to park so the only decision was 3 or 4 days. I decided on 4 as the Friday might be a shorter day as we leave the cruise so I don't see us being there much before 10:30am. We will do a half day on the Monday before we leave for the airport as I fly at 7pm and the boys at 8pm.

I ordered the Universal tickets in January. Again the 4 day ticket was cheaper than the UK ticket even at current exchange rates so I bought the uS tickets and got them shipped to me. We were good to go.

Good thing you’re seeing Illuminations this time, since rumors seem to say it’s going away sooner rather than later.

Oh you did have to say that and upset me, didn't you?

I can't believe you've never seen IllumiNations - you can tell we've never vacationed together at WDW, otherwise I'd have made sure to have dragged you there.

Nice job with the tickets. The Express Pass is a nice thing to get have with your stay at Universal and a good freebie! I enjoyed having this when I stayed at the Royal Pacific in October.

I just found out last night that they have added Harry Potter rides to express pass. That made my day
