Pre-Trip Going out in style with the Orlando Mouse: A BBFN SnT PTR

I'm trying to decide what I want to do this trip. It's our last at WDW for a while, so maybe some things we don't normally do when we visit. We will mainly be at MK, but will travel to Epcot for the magnet. Remember when we went to WDW just for the magnet? Good times.

First things first - I'll pick up our very last passholder magnet. It'll be bittersweet, but I'm ok with that considering what we will be doing with our time instead.

Character photos - We don't normally do this, but this may be the trip we try to get in as many character photos as we can.

Try a speciality food item at MK, like the hotdog at Casey's. We've never done this.

The card game...I cannot remember what it is called at the moment. It's the one where you hold it up in special locations.

Visit our least favorite attractions for nostalgia's sake - Country Bear Jamboree and Enchanted Tiki Room

Ride Splash Mountain - I never want to ride this.

Any suggestions about what to do at MK for our last (for a while) visit?

We are in a similar spot (and going to miss you by about a week) as far as letting our AP’s go and focusing on cruises.

Since we’re more or less close enough to occasionally stop by for non-park dinners (and maybe a separate ticketed event just to check that out) we’ve been consciously doing more in-park dining, because we won’t be able to do that for awhile.

So, Tiffins instead of Jiko, Skipper Canteen instead of leaving MK for a monorail resort.

And yes, trying attractions we typically skip - we may even sit through BatB for the first/last time.

But hey, we skip the Tiki room for a reason, brahs. That’s just wisdom.

Well, let's see (aside of all the above, which are good ideas), you could ride on the Prince Charming Regal Carousel. (I love taking my time to select the perfect horse to ride. ;) )

Perhaps one of you could get a hair trim at the Harmony Barber Shop on Main Street USA.

Definitely get a sundae at the Plaza Ice Cream Parlor. :hungry:

Watch the flag ceremony in the afternoon, across from City Hall. It's quite moving, actually -- don't know if you've ever done that, but I recommend it.

@imahistorygeek ,
My take on this type of vacation may be the total opposite of yours.

I will try to explain the logic of Max ( it can be a little off on most days).

If I was walking into MK and Epcot for the last time in a long time I would not waste my precious time on attractions I normally skip.

I would want that last taste of the magical elixir that is my favourite rides and attractions

The ones that I know I will miss the most
Go out with a bang and on a high note

Just my two cents

Definitely following along. Looking forward to seeing what you get for the beer exchange. I should send you guys some PNW beer...I think you would enjoy the variety we have up here.
Hey, I'm game for a west coast/east coast beer exchange!

We've only ever done the carousel ONE TIME, ever!
I've considered the HBS for a shave but I dont think they do that.
Flag Retreat is a regular for us, as good as WDW does with it DL does it better 😮

I'm all about making my bride happy but I'm with ya, Max. We have FPs for our favorites and vacation creep is about to set in giving us some additional time at MK to get more in.

Following along. Awesome cat gif. See ya on the high seas someday.
Yes, That needs to happen! We've got a few dates between Oct.2019 and April 2020 planned, just sayin.


Little update:

We ended up nixing the Citricos ADR. Since MK closes at 9 the night we are there we figured we would stay in the park, knock out one of Casey's specialty dogs for dinner, and get a kiss goodnight before meeting a friend at TotWL for drinks. Also...yeah, looks like we will probably going down a day earlier now. #vacationcreepisreal
