Hi all, first post here!
I'm taking a spur-of-the-moment trip to DW on Feb. 15th, 2010 with my old college roommate. We're from Alabama right by the panhandle area of Florida (man I wish I was about 50 miles to the East so I could get the FL resident discount! My family has a beach house there, does that count?). Anyway, because we're fairly close we'll be driving. I believe we're staying for 2 nights and 3 days at either an All-Star value resort or the Port Orleans-Riverside. I haven't been to DW since I was 2 and all I could do then was ride the teacups and dumbo ride! I really want to take advantage of my time there and see/do as much as I can. I've been on Google all night trying to find tips but all it's done is overwhelm me. My friend and myself are both 21 with high-energy levels so I know we can accomplish a lot each day but I just wanted to get some advice on:
-allocating our time
-doing the "must-do's" and knowing what to skip over
-fun nightlife things we can do as we've both recently turned 21
-maybe a loose itinerary?
-what is a good idea to spend money on and what I should skip
-places to dine on a budget and maybe one restaurant where we should splurge on dinner
-is staying at the Port Orleans-Riverside worth the extra money over an all-star value resort for two girls who probably won't be spending tons of time in the room?
Also, we're both doing Habitat for Humanity next week to take advantage of the "give a day, get a day" deal that Disney is offering. If we get the tickets for free, can we still add on additional extras like the park-hopper? Also, is the Fantasmic! Dinner Package worth it?
Any help would be appreciated!
