Walt Disney World & World Travels

Summer fun is about to begin

Posted on: July 4, 2009

We’ve had our summer reservations set for 7 months now.  6 nights, 7 days at Disney’s Beach Club Villas in a 2 BR.  Perfect!  Stormalong Bay here we come!  Dining reservations were made at the 90 day mark, everything was ready. 

Plans: drive down on Sat, stay offsite for the night and check in early at BCV on Sunday morning. Most of our days would be at Stormalong Bay or the Quiet Pool, reading & relaxing.  Parks in the evening after the daily rain cools things down and the crowds thin out.   Sundy dinner at Cape May Cafe and MK evening EMH.  Monday, Hollywood Brown Derby and Disney’s Hollywood Studios  evening EMH.  Tuesday Typhoon Lagoon during the day and the Hoop dee do Review at night.  Wednesday dinner Tusker House with evening EMH at Animal Kingdom.  Thursday the kids were going to do their thing and Jon & were going to Bistro de Paris for our anniversary dinner and Friday we had ADR’s for The Wave  followed by evening EMH at Magic Kingdom.  Saturday we would pack up and head home, probably after breakfast at Cape May Cafe.

Well, we just changed most of that.  I got notice of an amazing travel agent appreciation perk for Disney Cruise Line 3 & 4 night cruises in July.   We were able to make it work and now we’re going on our own Land & Sea trip!  I think we’ll even spend less money after all is said and done and our trip is now 5 nights at BCV and 3 nights on the Disney Wonder (total of 8 nts/9 days)!  We’ll cut some of our dining reservations because we’ll be eating plenty on the ship, and we’ll skip the water parks because we won’t have as much time at the World; but we’ll add snorkeling & perhaps a couples massage.

New plan, we’ll still drive down on Saturday the 11th, but now we’re checking into BCV that day.  We’ll spend some time at Stormalong Bay and go to Epcot for the evening.  We’re thinking we’ll eat a bunch of Counter Service around the World Showcase for dinner.  Sunday we’ll relax at the pool during the day, late lunch at Planet Hollywood and then long night at Magic Kingdom.  Monday will still be Hollywood Brown Derby and DHS.  Tuesday we’re re-working completely, we’ll save HDDR for another trip when it can stand out more.  We’ll probably spend the day at Epcot and maybe ESPN or Big River Grille for dinner or more CS.  Wednesday maybe Beaches & Cream or ???? and then AK for evening EMH followed by dessert at Beaches & Cream.  I am not missing out on my No Way Jose on this trip!

Amazing how you can plan for months & months and then completely turn it upside down in less than 24 hours.  Next post will be about getting a family ready for their 1st cruise!
