Getting Excited
Join Date: Jul 21
Had a very similar experience with genie+ in February. Having to be awake and alert at 6.55am every day got really old. Spent a really good chunk of time staring at my phone refreshing the app trying to get the next fast pass. I’m not exaggerating when I say during the holiday I refreshed it thousands of times to try and get ROR. Yes the parks were busy but the queues to get in at 30 minutes before opening? Aye carumba….huge

Conversely although universal was seemingly as busy, never queues for more than 5 minutes to get in and queue times less than 30 minutes for most rides. We have booked for 2023 already and for the first time ever have not bought Disney tickets. We will stay away if the current system remains 🤷🏼

So as chief (only planner) I’ll be doing the crazy Disney finger pressing, but as we have two young children who need their sleep otherwise the alternative is hiking two grinches around each day apart from the odd day we won’t be staying into the evening, which puts us at an even further disadvantage really.
Nearer the time we are going to have to explain to our fearless six year old that this vacation will be a vastly different experience to our last trip in 2019 where she was able to ride everything over and over with our MDE’s all pre booked and child swap too.
However, we will make staying at the villa part of the experience with the private pool and some games, and we will buy brand new games to take with us.
We are also taking them to Kennedy as she is very knowledgable about space, planets etc so she will absolutely love that, and we could also have a nice beach day, etc. We will not allow Disney to make us miserable.
However, depending upon our experience this might be adios Disney and even perhaps in the future hola Universal.

Anna just one practical question. Does the villa have a coffee machine and if so what type of coffee? Pods? Filter/Drip? Or is it just kettle and whatever you can buy?
When we arrive my daughter and kiddies are heading straight off to the villa whilst my son in law and I are picking up the car and then heading straight off to buy food/drink shopping. So we won’t get to see what’s at the villa before we buy the stuff.
Hi CarolynU,
Hopefully with no failures between now and your trip, we will have a drip coffee machine, a K-Cup machine and a kettle for your use at Palm Tree Villa.

Any questions please do not hesitate to reach out and let us know

(Disney apple and actual coffee not included in stay )
