Default COMPLETE Photo TR: MinnieMom Orlando Spring Break

POST TRIP NOTE: To skip directly to the good part (the pictures!) CLICK HERE to go to pics starting on page 6.



Hello fellow MO! After a couple of years of extreme indulgence averaging about a trip per month to Orlando, we cut back this year to only a week for Spring Break and Labor Day weekend. This is intended to help save money for a BIG trip to Hawaii in 2018. Part of the plan was to let our Disney APs expire last December. Instead, we will spend our Orlando time at SeaWorld & Universal since those APs still have a few months left on them.

So, next Friday I set off for a solo weekend before DH and DD join me a week from Monday. The only planning for this trip was securing the resort. Literally, that is all. We will be at the HGVC at SeaWorld. No clue which parks we will visit on which days, if we even go to a park every day. We may or may not visit Discovery Cove for the first time. We may or may not drive to Disney Springs. Heck, I may go all out nuts and get another AP just for me for Legoland so I can check out their new ride and finally get to work finishing off that book!!

The uncertainty is somewhat exciting. I wonder what will happen this trip???

Yay! An Amy report! I'm almost too busy with life right now to even log in, so this should give me my "Florida fix" until the 6 month window opens for ADR's. (Going in October this year, and am planning on MNSSHP for the first time!)
Looking forward to the trip report!

Hey, erikthewise; cmrdgrs; bubster; dvcnewbie1212; ermindy1133; Mari23; Brian5581 - glad you are coming along again this trip!

By this time tomorrow I should be all checked in & trying to decide what to do for the evening. SeaWorld? Universal? Disney Springs? Shop? Unpack? Or crack out the laptop to get the work I do have to get done completed first so I can then chill & enjoy the trip?



Yeah. Likely not that last choice for the first night.
