I really wanted to get Seven Dwarfs Mine Train but that was completely booked already. I will keep trying but worst case scenerio, we use the the DAS for it. My parents had gotten the GAC for the last trip so hopefully they still can get it. I'm also hoping there is no one at the parks that week.

Thanks! I'm so excited. This is going to be their first and last year seeing the Osborne Lights. We may have to make two trips to Hollywood Studios at night, one for the Lights then one for Fantasmic. We'll see.

This is our first and last Osborne Lights this year too and we've got the exact same plan, Fantasmic one night and Osborne the next so that we can devote plenty of time to the lights Smile

I want to get custom made shirts. I looked at custom ink and didn't find anything I liked. I looked at zazzle and that was overwhelming. I did one test design and it didn't look right. I need help with this. I just want something simple.

I got mine on Etsy. She was open to whatever I wanted and she did 2 awesome custom shirts for me. I just got the downloadable file from here and then made the t-shirts myself. Though she does make the T-shirts also.

Here is what I have planned this far.

Nov 15 Arrival day
Today is pretty open because it's when we check in to the All-Star Sports Resort. I did the online check in and put in to be on the ground floor and near transportation since both of my parents are disabled.
ADR 9:35pm Whispering Canyon Cafe at Wilderness Lodge
I am hoping to get there early so we can wonder around and check it out.

Nov 16 Day 1
FP+ 10:35-10:50am Frozen sing-a-long
12:55-1:55pm Tower of Terror
5;10-6:10pm Toy Story
ADR 3:30pm 50s Prime Time Cafe

Nov 17 Day 2
FP+ None
ADR 3:35 Crystal Palace.
I wasn't able to set up fastpass+ selections for this day.

Nov 18 Day 3
FP+ 11:35-12:35pm Pirates of the Caribbean
12:35-1:35pm Peter Pan's Flight
1:50-2:50pm Dumbo the Flying Elephant
ADR 9:15am Minnnie's Beach Bash Breakfast at Cape May Cafe
We plan on watching Festival of Fantasy this day as well in Liberty Square in that handicap section since it is partly shady. My dad and I will probably all the Mountains together (like Big Thunder, Splash, Space and Seven Dwarfs). My mom doesn't like those rides.

Nov 19 Day 4
FP+ 9:00-10:00am Kilimanjaro Safaris
10:30-10:50am Festival of the Lion King
2:30-2:50pm Finding Nemo the Musical
ADR 1:00pm Yak and Yeti

Nov 20 Day 5
FP+ 10:05-11:05am Spaceship Earth
11:30-12:30pm Meet Disney Pals at the Epcot Character Spot
12:45-1:45pm Soarin
ADR 7:00pm Tutto Italia Ristorante Dinner

Nov 21 Departure Day
ADR 9:30am 'Ohana's Best Friends Breakfast Featuring Lilo and Stitch

This is the rough layout for our vacation. I still have to purchase our MVMCP tickets and memory maker. Both should happen sometime this month or early next month. Nov 15 and 16 are the last days of Food and Wine Festival, so hopefully we will be able to experience that as a family. My mom did mention that they may come down a couple days early. We may meet Chip and Dale everyday because my mom loves them. Since they are themed to each park, that will make it more fun.

Looks like you've made wonderful plans for your parents, but I bet their favorite thing to do at Disney will be spending time with you! And making custom t-shirts is a great idea.

My daddy really wanted '50s Prime Time and I had originally gotten Sci-fi but I was able to get an ADR for '50s Prime Time for a later time because it was for a later time, I had to change our Toy Story time later.

I finally bought the Christmas Party tickets!! We are going on Nov 17. I decided to keep the Crystal Palace reservation for that day since it is right before the party and I want to be in MK around that time. I also managed to get an earlier reservation for Whispering Canyon Cafe on Nov 15 as well. The last thing we need to get, is memory maker! Only 17 days left until they get here!

Thank you everyone! We had a great time. I think my parents got more of a kick out of everyone I knew at all four parks plus our resort lol We did have a couple bumps in the road at first but it turned out pretty okay. I will get a trip report done soon.
