I'm a newb!

Hey Everyone!

I'll be in WDW in EXACTLY 2 weeks & came to find out what cool things I could do with a friend of mine since we are ditching leaving our annoying, know-it-all darling children in the Neverland Club for an evening.

I've been browsing around the forum & everyone looks like a bunch of fun!!! clapping

Hey Kris and welcome!! clapping clapping clapping

Wow, a free evening! YAY! I think a few fun choices might be:

  1. A drink and taste tour around EPCOT
  2. Dump 'em and go ride those rides they didn't want to go on but you did and have a ball!
  3. Cirque du Soliel might be kind fun if the cost is acceptable. Though not sure if that's sold out so close to your arrival now
  4. Have a fun and indulgent kid-free dinner at a signature restaurant - CA Grille is our fav with a great view and atmosphere
  5. Hit up Downtown Disney's World of Disney, Christmas Shop, Earl of Sandwich and Ghirardelli's and then tell them how much you enjoyed all of it without them. Oh, and forgot to buy them anything laugh

But that's just me... silly

Bahahahahahahaha! I can relate. My kiddoes aren't to the know-it-all stage yet (well, the DD7 is bordering on it) but a night to yourself in Disney is BLISS.

Hmmm...I would either book a signature dinner like Citricos or Artist Point or Jiko or Cali Grill, OR, I would hit up the Territory Lounge at Wilderness Lodge for snacks and drinks. Then, being an Epcot fangirl, I'd head to World Showcase, without whiny darling children telling me how boring it is. OH, and Soarin! Because it's a LOT funner when you aren't suddenly worrying that your kid is going to fall out Smile

Welcome!

Welcome!

Kris10 - Welcome!!

I'm going to go with everything Lizzy B said, including the part about stressing over losing a kid on Soarin' -- hilarious!

I've heard amazing thinks about all of those restaurants, and would definitely take the opportunity to have a nice, relaxing dinner while you're there.

Are you leaning more towards the dinner, drinks, chilling part of getting away from the darlings, or more of the hitting the adventurous rides that you aren't able to when they're with you?

Welcome Kris! Glad to have ya here! Whatever you do on your kid-free night, it will be fantastic! I would end my night at Epcot with a Grand Marnier Orange Slush and Illuminations!

yay Welcome yay Kris, hope you have a great time,.. I know how "tough" it will be leaving your adorable children for the night. I'm thinking of picking mine back up when I go back to WDW in January.

Whew! I thought you were just going to tell her to say "hi" to your kids when she dropped hers off. That's a load off my mind!

Hi,
I would have dinner at Narcoosies (at the Grand Floridian) arranging the time so that you were finishing dinner at fireworks time. I would walk out on the deck and watch the fireworks across the water. I'm not sure you could get in at this time of year without ADRs, but if you do, be sure to have the almond crusted cheesecake for dessert--it's the best dessert anywhere on property!
