    Ughhh...we've had that here too. She went back in August a few times in elementary and middle school. Brook loved to fish when she was little, me not so much...in fact I've never been fishing!

    You should def take him to the shore!! He'd love it and you can make your own new memories!:inlove:

    We will, I've been wanting to take him. The quaintness of the area was one of my favorite parts about it, I think it will be a little bittersweet.
    Wow, I sound like a very old person right now.

    Anyway.. so is CRT definitely out during your trip?

    I just booked the school tour for Embry-Riddle!! So exciting!!

    So here is what we have so far...

    Depart PHL at 2:33pm on Wednesday, Aug 16th...land at MCO at 5:01pm. Grab our bags, rent a car and drive a little over an hour to our hotel in Daytona Beach. We'll find somewhere to eat dinner and then head to bed.

    Wake up on the morning of the 17th and head to ER by 9am for our 3 hour tour. If all goes well we will be heading towards CBR by 1pm-ish! Of course we will drive over to POR and see if Elsie is around lol...then head to check in at CBR! The MK is open until 10pm so we will def head there for the evening.

    Hahaha! I know @amjt660! It's so hard not to have a ''loose plan''. I love planning Disney, but as you know from our last trip it was just too much! I'm just looking forward to people watching for an hour or so if we want, and it will def be more do-able without our usual 49 ADR's and activities lol....

    11 days til it's our FP day!! Brook says she will be setting an alarm to hopefully snag FoP. That's 5 days into her summer break, so I don't see that happening lol. I'll probably be up with the dog, so I'm sure I'll just do it anyway:rolleyes:

    Tomorrow is FASTPASS DAY! I'm so excited! I'm really just hoping to get Flight of Passage and if possible Na'vi River Journey.

    Found a pic of Brook and I from our 2013 stay at CBR

    Good luck with the fp
    Not sure if you can get both on the same day with the tier system
    You might have to plan on 2 days for that

    But wait a minute
    This was the low key limited planning trip right?

    Correct max! Lol! I should have clarified that FoP more important to us than NRJ, and that IF I'm able to snag both we I'll have to visit AK twice;)

    No matter how little I plan we def have to have fast passes! Ive stuck to my word with the ADRs and extra activities ..... so far ;)

    Yesterday was FP day!!! I woke up around 9:15 am, and before I so much as sat up I logged into MDE. I started with our AK day and hoped for the best! Was I able to snag one or both or even neither of the new rides?

    August 17th....
    Check in at CBR around 3-ish, head to MK

    SPACE MTN- 5:05-6:05
    7D- 6:40-7:40
    SPLSH MTN- 7:55-8:55


    August 18th....Start the day at AK

    EVEREST- 9:05-10:05
    NA'VI -10:45-11:45(YAY!):D
    PRIMEVAL W- 12:15-1:15

    Tea at the GF - 4:05....head to a park, most likely Epcot

    August 19th....HS


    RnRC- 9:00-10:00
    ToT- 11-12

    Dinner at LTT- 6:05

    August 20th...AK

    (Super excited for this!)
    EVEREST- 5:35-6:35

    This is the day we may hit one of the water parks. I'm thinking maybe we'll cancel PW and spend the morning up until noon or so there.

    August 21st....Epcot

    Soarin'- 9:10-10:10
    Figment- 10:40-11:40

    Oops, forgot to add that we ordered our MagicBands yesterday. We both went with a color we don't have- green! Since it's a mother-daughter trip we got our nicknames for each other on them this time. Memmy for me and Sissy for Brook;)
