August 22 (First Post, Hi!)

Hi everyone, it’s my first post here after lurking around for a lifetime.

Much like a lot of you, multiple holidays cancelled/rearranged at this point but for the first time (I got no idea why), I feel optimistic. I BELIEVE that our current booked trip on the 6th August next year, will happen. I am thinking nothing but positive, which is different the previous…six attempts.

This will be our second trip after doing three weeks staying at Pop Century back in October 2018. However, it will kind of feel like our first in some ways. Our daughter was only two back then and so it was a real juggling act at times and of course a lot of planned stuff got moved/cancelled due to how she was doing etc. Our daughter will be 5 when we go next August so it will have a different feel! We are staying offsite this time at Universals Endless Summer (Surfside), but are well versed in Ubering around, we did it a ton last time. I’m starting to dip my toe in the planning now and wanted to get thoughts on this as a two week slate and moreover, the restaurant choices. Worth saying all three of us are huge coaster nuts (yes, even our daughter!), hence Busch/Seaworld - we did them both last time and loved them so they are a must to us.

August 6th - Travel Day/Disney Springs
- Chicken Guy

August 7th - Magic Kingdom

- Satuli Canteen/Yak and Yeti

August 14th - Epcot
- Regal Eagle/Via Napoli

August 15th - Magic Kingdom/Disney Springs

August 17th - Volcano Bay/USF

Welcome

Since you're staying at Universal, not sure I'd bother Ubering over to Disney Springs on your first evening. Especially being a Saturday, DS is going to be very busy in the evening which I wouldn't be up for after a long flight. If I was up for more than the resort food court, I'd just take the bus into CityWalk and eat there.

If Chicken Guy is a must (which I understand!) then maybe you could do that on your last day, depending what time your flight is. You'd have plenty of time if it's an evening flight, although it's not the most convenient as you'd have to head back to Universal to collect cases on the way to the airport. Just not sure where else to fit it in.

I'd normally suggest adding Discovery Cove to anyone doing Busch/Seaworld, as I think it ends up much the same price ticket wise. But then you'd have to drop one of your other park days and there's not really any wiggle room there. So I'd probably bring Volcano Bay a bit earlier in the trip to give you a rest instead, doing a park every day is quite full on. Maybe switch it with the 12th.

We are planning August 22 also 🤞🏼. If you haven’t been there before we loved Mythos (and Michael McIntyre and family were on the next table so I spent the whole meal politely trying not to look like i recognised him or make eye contact!) but the air con was super cold so take a cardi (i was literally shivering)…..nacho volcano thing in Margaritaville were the best I’ve ever had and big enough for 2/3….exciting!

Very good point r.e Ubering to DS that first night, might trade with Cowfish evening as Chicken Guy is a must for us! We had considered Discovery Cave, but like you say it’s just losing a park day on a two week stay wasn’t an easy trade up for us to make. We will absolutely go there perhaps next time though.

Yes we have been to Mythos before, love it! The Grilled Cheese and tomato soup is so good! My Wife adores nachos so I’ll certainly make her aware of the ones at Margaritaville.

Signing up for here last night with this username by the way…am I controlling Joe Biden’s mind?

Lol also a massive fan of Mythos in Universal but what is with the air con! My daughters ended up having to keep going outside for a few minutes to warm up last time we went because they were so cold! Totally agree with needing a jumper in there but not really what you want to be lugging round Florida in August. Please don't let that put you off as it really is lovely food and a brilliant escape.

We enjoyed Mythos too! Worth trying. A great opportunity to cool down especially peak summer- I think some areas are colder than others.

Welcome to posting on the forum OP 🙂
