I got a new question from Rachel last night:
“Hey Disney Diva! I love your blog. Thanks for sharing your experiences. A great planning opportunity for you: My husband and I are traveling to Disney 12/11-12/17. We are staying at the Grand Floridian – 6 day park hopper – no dining plan (we ate too much last time we went with the deluxe dining plan). We will try to get into the Chef’s Table at Victoria and Alberts (if not there we will book California Grill – which is fabulous)…also do Cirque du Soleil one night. We are looking forward to a leisure time in the parks – along with golf, spa.”
Disney is for Kids right? Well yeah, sure it is! But can it be awesome fun for just adults. My husband and I took our 10-year anniversary to Disney and called it our “K & G’s NO KIDS ALLOWED” and had so much fun. Its actually even more fun because its so much faster with 2 than with 4+.
Ok, well first thing I would tell you would be to get tickets to the Very Merry Christmas Party. It technically starts at 7:00pm. There is a party on the 11th, 13th, and the 15th. Tickets are $67.05 per person. They have their own parade and their own special fireworks that just give you a totally different experience. Since you wont have little ones with you you can go really late into the night when rides will be almost vacant.
AND since you’re on property perhaps it’s a good idea to consider a right of Disney passage, “Drinking your way around the World.” What’s that? You try at least one tasty beverage from every country in Epcot’s World Showcase. My favorite is the Grey Goose Vodka and Grand Marnier slushy. You can find it at the wine kiosk
Have you considered the Luau at the Polynesian at all? Its enjoyable and you can read about my review of it HERE.
I also think that any time you can sit on a beach, whether it be at the Grand Floridian, or at another resort, you should do it! And any time you can get a $50.00 steak you should ABSOLUTELY do it. I’ve never had a steak at Disney I didn’t like. I enjoyed the one at the Yachtsman but I had an affair with the one at the California Grille.
I think the key is that you guys don’t just run yourself ragged and that you do only the things you really want to do. And, of course, you should still take your afternoon break so that you can stay out LATE and enjoy the short lines.
I hope you guys have a fabulous time!
