Walt Disney World 2017 Trip Report Index

It was almost a year ago back in September 2016 that I booked our third Walt Disney World holiday. I booked nearing the end of the free dining promotion, and we decided to upgrade our dining plan from the quick service dining plan that was included in the price, to the regular dining plan. We paid £390 to upgrade the three adults travelling and I think this worked out to be fantastic value.

When¬†planning this year’s trip, I really wanted to try some of the things we have never done before, and also revisit a couple of favourites. We knew going in August was going to be very hot, so we were getting prepared and planning days accordingly. To save some money we bought some bits before we went, and generally spent the 300 odd day countdown ticking off the days until it was time to go.

Our 2017 trip looks a little like this.

Day 1 – Magic Kingdom, Lunch at Crystal Palace and the evening at Hollywood Studios

Day 2 – Epcot, swimming and the evening at Magic Kingdom for dinner at Be Our Guest and Happily Ever After Fireworks.

Be Our Guest Steak

Day 3 – Hollywood Studios, swimming and Hoop De Doo Revue

Day 4 – Typhoon Lagoon and dinner at Trails End Restaurant

Day 5 – Disney Springs and the evening at Epcot with dinner at Via Napoli

Day 6 – A morning of swimming with the afternoon and evening at Animal Kingdom and dinner at Yak and Yeti

Day 7 – Animal Kingdom in the morning with an afternoon of swimming and dinner at Ohana

Day 8 – Breakfast at Be Our Guest and the morning at Animal Kingdom, some relaxation time before dinner at Hollywood and Vine and a Fireworks Cruise.

Day 9 – A rushed morning before lunch at the Rainforest Cafe in Animal Kingdom, and Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party.

Our last morning was spent by the pool enjoying the last of the Florida sunshine before travelling home.

Pop back next Saturday to read what we got up to on Day 1
