Mouse Musings

Woke up this morning to more snow so I was quite delighted when I found these in our mailbox today...
We're just planning a brief trip since we're off to the Caribbean a couple of weeks later, but I may be slightly more excited about visiting the Mouse than the Virgin Islands.  I have a little Disney display in the dining room to remind everyone of the upcoming fun...
I'm really impressed by the Disney website, how much you can plan and how user friendly it is!  I love that we could design our MagicBands as soon as we booked our trip.  I love the access to the online dining reservations and FastPass+ options.  Since we're only on property for four days, I didn't opt for the Memory Maker package...hopefully not a mistake.

Here's a peek at our skeleton itinerary...

Day 1-  Breakfast at Grand Floridian quick serve
             Monorail to Magic Kingdom
             FastPass+ Mickey at Town Square Theater
             Lunch at Be Our Guest (lunch reservations started 2/25)
             FastPass+ Pirates of the Caribbean
             FastPass+ Haunted Mansion
             Monorail to Epcot
             Dinner at Chefs de France in France
             IllumiNations:  Reflections of Earth

Day 2-  Monorail to Contemporary
             Chef Mickey's Character Breakfast
             Monorail to Epcot
             FastPass+ Spaceship Earth
             FastPass+ Living with the Land
             FastPass+ Journey Into Imagination With Figment
             Meet Donald Duck in Mexico
             Meet Snow White in Germany
             Dinner at Tutto Italia in Italy
             Wishes Nighttime Spectacular

Day 3-  Breakfast at Grand Floridian quick serve
             Bus to Animal Kingdom
             FastPass+ It's Tough to be a Bug
             FastPass+ Disney Characters
             FastPass+ Kilimanjaros Safari
             Dinner at Grand Floridian Cafe

Day4-  Breakfast at Polynesian quick serve
            Pool time!
            Magical Express to airport

So many options of things to do, see and eat!  It can be overwhelming.  We're traveling with a toddler so flexibility will be paramount.  Thankfully it's not our big kids' first trip to the rodeo so hopefully they'll be flexible too!

We've got the coordinating family t-shirts, water bottles, bag tags from Dixie Delights Etsy store,  sunscreen and more...all we need is some sunshine now!

Any other thoughts or suggestions?
