I see this and it only tells me that prices will continue to climb. I was pleasantly surprised at the state of the parks. They looked very good. This was one of our best trips yet. 3 nights BCV and 3 nights GFV, all on points. As far as I was concerned, Epcot was as beautiful as I can ever remember. I usually hold DAK up as the most aesthetically beautiful park. I forgot how great Epcot looks during this festival.

We’re here now. Arrived yesterday after a 3 night Disney cruise. It’s busy. Like almost Christmas week busy. We’ve resigned ourselves to the fact that our days will be doing the three FPs we made 2 months ago in the morning and then coming back to Stormalong Bay and the Beach club to rest in the afternoon and then have a nice dinner at one of the parks or resorts and maybe catch another ride if we were lucky enough to get another fp. We’re having a great time but it is tiring. My kids got to ride flight of passage for the first time this morning and loved it, so that made the whole trip worth while especially since it was a 210 minute wait and we had fast passes! Margaritas tonight at Mexico and I’ll be all set!

My family stayed in adjoining studios at the Polynesian using DVC points for part of last week. We were at Blizzard Beach last Wednesday, Epcot and Hollywood Studios last Thursday, Animal Kingdom and Magic Kingdom on Friday, and Magic Kingdom on Saturday. Our approach (other than the day at Epcot and Hollywood Studios) was to get up really early, hit the parks at rope drop, leave the parks for some downtime around 2:00, and then go back to the parks in the early evening.

With this approach, we were able to avoid the mid-day swell associated with what you see in the pictures above. I really do not think we could have gotten into many more attractions had we stayed all day with no break (maybe 1 or 2 of the less popular, higher capacity rides or shows), and it definitely was more enjoyable hanging out at the Lava Pool with a Dole Whip. As always, we had a blast at the water park, where there is no FastPass+ and no 60 day advance planning with respect to how the day should unfold.

I agree on Epcot. It looked great.

As a side note, two of my kids tried Beverly soda at Club Cool on the way out of Epcot. Their reactions were comic gold! Quote: "It's like the taste in your mouth after you vomit."
