Had to flex our plans over the weekend- the train we were getting had been changed which meant two changes and a much later arrival time in the early hours of the morning- no thanks! Had to cancel and book airport parking instead.

I'm looking at loose plans (again and again) - absolutely not set in stone due to park hours coming out... Probably won't take too much notice of the busy day guide as planning MK on MNSSHP days in the main and hoping to take advantage of a quieter park.

This is how the plans are looking so far (we always split our days into 3, a tip I learnt years ago from the Dibb):

Sunday 8th
AM - Flight
Aft - Flight
PM - Disney Springs - Blaze Pizza

Monday 9th
AM - Magic Kingdom
Aft - Shopping
PM - Texas Roadhouse

Tuesday 10th
AM - Animal Kingdom (buy standby skipper and Genie +)
Aft - Animal Kingdom - Yak and Yeti early lunch
PM - Ohana (watch MK fireworks from beach)

Wednesday 11th
AM - EPCOT (buy genie +)
Aft - Pool
PM - EPCOT (food and wine)

Thursday 12th
AM - Cracker Barrel breakfast then Typhoon Lagoon (buy Genie + and stack for HS)
Aft - Typhoon Lagoon
PM - Hollywood Studios watch Fantasmic

Friday 13th
AM - Magic Kingdom
Aft - Shopping / Pool
PM - Cheesecake Factory or Cheddars Kitchen

Saturday 14th
AM - Discovery Cove
Aft - Discovery Cove
PM - Magic Kingdom

Sunday 15th
AM - Keys to the Kingdom (hopefully)
Aft - Pool
PM - Longhorns

Monday 16th
AM - Cracker Barrel the Animal Kingdom
Aft - Animal Kingdom Yak and Yeti
PM - Disney Springs D Luxe Burger

Tuesday 17th (my 40th birthday)
AM - Magic Kingdom
Aft - Typhoon Lagoon
PM - Disney Springs Summerhouse on the Lake

Wednesday 18th
AM - Cracker Barrel and shopping
Aft - EPCOT
PM - EPCOT (food and wine)

Thursday 19th
AM - Hollywood Studios (buy Genie +)
Aft - Animal Kingdom just for lunch Yak and Yeti / Pool
PM - Magic Kingdom

Friday 20th
AM - Magic Kingdom
Aft - Cracker Barrel lunch
PM - Disney Springs

Saturday 21st
Travel to cruise port

It's funny writing it down as there are clear themes - we love Cracker Barrel and Yak and Yeti so prioritise those into our plans. We also love Disney Springs. We haven't got as many visits to TL in as planned, so may quickly jump there instead of the pool some days. We have a car so can be quite flexible in our plans.

As you can see we plan on purchasing Standby Skipper (apparently a forbidden subject on here) and Genie + a few times.

I'm going to book Summerhouse on the Lake on open table tomorrow (I've been watching the dates countdown), meaning the only things to book at 60 days will be Ohana and Keys to the Kingdom. Not sure which to book first?!

Anyone else wish to share their itinerary?

wow, that is far too organised for me! well done though... i suppose if youre doing the parks most days you do need to plan considerably harder, especially with ADRs and fastpasses.

we're probably doing MNSSHP in the second week once we've adjusted to the timezone. we only really need to plan mornings and/or afternoons, as by 8pmish, Mr B will be in bed most nights

i tend to throw most of my ideas into a tripit plan, and then a week or so before, start moving stuff into specific timeslots. but the plans will be something like:

am - gf takes B for early breakfast around 7-8am. i have a lie-in till 9ish
maybe do some shopping, or nip to a mall
11amish - b's naptime. either back at the villa, or an hour in the car (good for longer journeys, like the seacow center which is ~2hrs each way)
pm - marine center
food somewhere nearby - salty dog or yoders maybe?
6pmish, drive back. hopefully B sleeps, and we put him straight down when we get back.
evening - movie/tv, beer/wine/food

this will be one of the days

others wont be nearly as detailed... more like

am shopping
pm sushi at nagoya dr phillips
home, movie/pool/beer
(these sort of days get moved around based on how done in we are from the day before, or if/when we catch covid at disney (like we did last year!)

Lovely plan, thank you for sharing. I especially approve of Sunday 8th as my plan for Thursday 5th is identical! We're on the late flight though, so not sure if we'll actually make it as far as Blaze.

I think we're going to try for KTTK on 11th, but still not completely decided about this one as I've spent loads of money on HHN extras this year that we wouldn't usually.

My plan is in a spreadsheet, which helps as I'm constantly amending it!
