    Should we forgo a rest day to take advantage of the lighter crowds?

    Should we forgo a rest day to take advantage of the lighter crowds?

    So, we’ve got the park hopper and kept the rest day! We’ll probably be able to see the main rides for our little one on the first three days, if the Saturday ends up being busy it won’t be the end of the world. 😉 Thanks everybody for giving your suggestions and options.

    Should we forgo a rest day to take advantage of the lighter crowds?

    Yes! We’re probably gonna go for it, even if we only end up using it on the last day. I’m very frugal so was hoping to save those $120, but like @mickEblu it’s kinda like insurance. I would hate feeling like I wasted a day, the whole reason for the trip is visiting the parks! 😊 But as far as...

    Should we forgo a rest day to take advantage of the lighter crowds?

    Thanks everyone for your suggestions and opinions :) It seems like there’s not a united front on this subject and I’m left with more doubts than when I wrote the post 😅 Which is great cause it gave me more things to consider, such as adding park hopper or not doing California Adventure for 2...

    Guide to DLR for WDW Veterans!

    Thank you!! I totally agree with you on the lack of historical data and how different things are now after COVID and magical keys changes. We’re definitely hoping to have fun regardless of how many rides we get to do :) Since this is her first trip ever (Covid baby) I’m more concerned about...

    Guide to DLR for WDW Veterans!

    Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a thorough reply!! I’ve used those crowd calendars for my previous trips to WDW and they were helpful, but I totally see what you’re saying. Things are very different nowadays and I’ve been reading in many forums that sometimes the weekday are...

    Please don’t leave! Specially not because of this sad excuse of a poster.

    Splash Mountain re-theme announced

    Is it not possible that a group of people who find the ride and it’s origins problematic, hurtful and racist could come together and bring this to Disney attention, by starting a petition, sharing their views on Twitter and other forms of social media. Which then gets the attention of the...

    Splash Mountain re-theme announced

    Correction: There’s plenty of previous posts on these forums regarding the origins of the ride and how problematic it is. If you look up this subject on google and even on this very thread, you will see why the ride is offensive to some people. Just because YOU are not personally offended by...

    That last paragraph actually sounds A LOT like what Africans went through when they were enslaved and what their future generations had and STILL have to endure because of it! The irony!

    Splash Mountain re-theme announced

    Thanks for taking the time to explain this so eloquently! It’s sad that the racist origin of the ride isn’t enough of a reason to retheme for some people and having to correlate it with the Third Reich in order to get your point across to them. But what’s even sadder is that they can...

    honest question: Why not both? Why can’t education and understanding lead to tearing down statues that honor factually racist people and retheming rides that have racist origins? And while I agree with your point that no one came out of this ride racist unless they were before, I can imagine...

    Is Disney allowing alcoholic beverages to be traded for desserts in DDP Quick Service?

    That makes sense :) I just wanted to highlight the "alcoholic" part of it, considering those drinks usually costs more than the dessert, while the regular drink/soda would be cheaper, and they would be less inclined to make the substitution.
