I am up to my old antics. You may remember last month’s WHIRLWIND TOUR, which produced a review of Pop Century Resort, a look at after-hours Magic Kingdom transportation, a look at after-hours Epcot transportation, evening Extra Magic Hours at Magic Kingdom until 3am, and morning Extra Magic Hour at Hollywood Studios, all in the span of about 18 hours.
This Tuesday/Wednesday I’ll be doing a review of Coronado Springs Resort, a report on Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party (primarily what characters are available, where they are, which are most popular, what rides are open, what restaurants are open, what’s different, how crowded it is, where to stand for the parade/fireworks etc), what the monorail/bus/boat/walking situation looks like around the Magic Kingdom on a Mickey’s Party night, and then morning Extra Magic Hour at Animal Kingdom just because I can.
This itinerary will be much less crazy than last time’s at least. Maybe I learned my lesson?
12pm – Arrive Coronado Springs Resort – check in (demand Grand Floridian suite upgrade, as always), collect walking times between points of interest (FUN!), take pictures of menus and the resort in general.
3pm – Lunch at Pepper Market.
5pm – Try to enter Magic Kingdom with just the Mickey’s Party ticket.
7pm – 12am – Feverishly walk around taking note of characters and lines, try to photograph Boo to You Parade and HalloWishes in vein, EAT CANDY, harass monorail workers about transportation options (if applicable).
1am – 6am – Drink scotch at Coronado Springs Resort alone in the room.
7am – Have breakfast at Pepper Market.
8am – Ride Expedition Everest back to back to back to back. To back to back to back.
11am – Have lunch.
12pm – Go home.
If you have any specific questions about Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party, Coronado Springs, Animal Kingdom morning Extra Magic Hour, etc. feel free to make a comment and I will do my best to check on it for you.
