While I'm not driving, I'll do a quick and dirty Disney report on the trip.
Saturday: we got in Coronado later than expected. No park tickets for than, so we hit Disney Springs. Absolutely miserable. You couldn't move and people were all pissy. I really wanted to check out the Christmas tree trail and we did, but you couldn't enjoy it. Just tons of douches taking selfies and stopping in the middle of the sidewalk to do something. Good dinner at T-Rex though.
Sunday: Magic kingdom. Really crowded, but manageable. I set the fast passes pretty well, so we rarely had to wait. As an added bonus, we had reservations at Liberty Tree at 6:50 so, when we got out, we saw most of the Christmas party parade for free.
As an aside, I think Liberty Tree is soooooo underrated. Never had a bad meal there and the service is always top notch.
Monday: Epcot. Pretty busy but, again, fast passes saved us. The first part of Epcot was not terrible, but the world Showcase was bananas. The lines for the Candlelight Procession was mind boggling. Dinner at France was absolutely amazing. I haven't been there in 8 years, but I'll be back next time. Also started to have problems with our magic bands. This will come into play more tomorrow.
When we get back to Coronado, I went to the desk to ask about some charges to my debit card I wasn't sure about. Wasn't necessarily disputing them, just wasn't sure. After 45 minutes of waiting, I couldn't do it anymore and had to go to sleep, telling them I'll stop back tomorrow.
Tuesday: Animal Kingdom. I went back to the desk before breakfast. Did the same #### all over again despite me telling them what was already looked at the night before. After a half hour we figured out it was a no show charge for Liberty Tree. Ok, they credited it to the room, no problem. Get back to the cafeteria and my daughter was visibly upset. I asked what was wrong and she was upset that her magic band didn't work and it sounds like the cast member didn't handle it very well (my daughter has SEVERE anxiety) . So, back again to the desk to get the band straightened out. Spent another 30 minutes there for something that should have taken 2 minutes. To the park.
AK was not too bad. Pretty crowded, but manageable. Hit up Pandora first and did the River journey followed by FoP. That was when I discovered another problem: when paying for lunch we found out that, at some point, our bands were turned off for charges. Fortunately my wife and I had enough cash between us, but this was a huge deal since I purposely leave my cards behind when I don't need them after being pick pocketed a few years ago. So we quickly hit the Safari and Lion King and cut our day short at AK.
We get back to Coronado and I'm fuming. Spent another 45 minutes at the desk and I'm struggling to not unload on the cast member because this was my 4th or 5th trip to the desk at this point and because we cut our day short specifically to take care of this.
Had dinner at Chef Micky and was pleasantly surprised how good it was.
Wednesday: Magic Kingdom. Much more tolerable than Sunday. The hotel gave us some extra fast passes so we walked on everything we wanted to go on. Went to dinner at the Diamond Horseshoe and it was mediocre at best. Probably won't be back.
Thursday: Epcot. Nice easy day. Crowds were great and we had a fun time. Our dinner at Ohana was pretty great too.
