Pretty sure I will be on small world
It may be too late for this advice, but sleep in! I got an 8:10 at a normal hour of waking fewer than 180 days out. For a variety of reasons I needed to change it. No worries, there was an 8:15 available and the next day I found another 8:10. I wound up with an 8:05. I just searched Memorial Day weekend and there are pre-park tables available every day.

We got it for dinner ( that’s what she wanted )

So right now we have BOG breakfast, not hearing great things, prompting the question on the other fantasyland package breakfast

Tony’s parade lunch package- me personally have seen a parade since before the milineum, mostly because I have no urge to line up 2 hours early on Main Street.

Dinner Royal Table.

Couldn't get dessert parties any days at all. We’re not even showing.

Have you tried for anyone the dessert parties?

Ah, cool. I only searched for the early ones as I'd heard they're the most difficult to grab. I wasn't originally intending to do it (cost and hassle), but I've been pleasantly surprised how easy it's been.

I've never done BOG, but I've heard the main advantage is that if you get a pre-park reservation you can make at least one easy trip on Mine Train or Peter Pan before the crowds arrive. https://www.easywdw.com/easy/blog/be...trategy-12617/ Regarding the other Fantasyland breakfast package, are you asking about the Early Morning Magic? If so, here is a recent review from the same website https://www.easywdw.com/easy/blog/re...-disney-world/ You'll spend more than BOG, but get a lot more rides.

I don't know about the dessert parties; maybe they're just not loaded in the system yet?

Wouldn’t spend the money for Tony’s if she wants to see the parade find a shady spot and enjoy with a ice cream.

Agreed - also that will be a lot of food in one day if you keep it all. I'd go for something smaller for lunch that's not really planned

We are deluxe dining plan people usually lol cost of Tony’s isn’t so bad considering...It is a lot of food that day but most of us are big eaters...

I know it doesn’t work for all families and I am sure their are plenty who don’t like Tony’s but we think it’s alright. Again we prefer to sit down and slow down in the air conditioning for a break at meals. So for us it’s either Tony’s with parade, or liberty tavern.

Matter of preference I guess but that’s just how we travel. Been using the deluxe plan since it was the platinum plan and included tips and priority seating for parades and shows.

Default Any words of wisdom would be greatly appreciated.

As usual, my Disney trips have gotten out of control. I had a bad bout with addonittis before my first trip in January Wound up changing the reservation to SSR GV for 7 days. (Bon is insisting on her own room) and now both of my college sons invited friends.

Our FFP+ date is rapidly approaching and I can not decide between splitting up our MK day EP day into a two-day. Bon purchased a 5-day ticket, we will use 2 days for AK, and either 2 days at MK and 1 EP, or 2 at EP and 1 MK day. I was purposely avoiding HS, considering that there are only 4 rides open and she can only do 2 at best I am used to traveling with my boys who are more interested in thrill rides the last few years than seeing the shows. My fiance is telling me to take her to HS anyway, she has not been to parks since 1991 and she may not get the chance again.

Having never traveled during peak crowds, I am expecting the worst and that this trip will be heavily dependent on rope drop ( really thought i was past those ) and FFP+.

Any words of wisdom would be greatly appreciated.

Is avoiding HS and splitting another park into 2 days prudent for crowds?

If so which day would you break into 2?

We had some friends come join us last week for 2 days, hit all 4 parks. They arrived around noon and I had fast passes for them ready at HW. Tot, then right on RNRC (timing worked out as one pass was ending and the other beginning. Watched the street performers which was awesome. Had dinner 4:00 dinner at mama Melrose then caught the boat to epcot for Spaceship Earth fp, Soarin 25 min wait, Nemo fp, grabbed a seat outside Rose and Crown for drinks and fireworks, Then back to Soarin and got to ride twice without leaving to get back in line. We did the next day in they same way with AK and MK extra magic hours. You can make it work. We like the short HW day then the boat to epcot especially if extra magic hours. Keeps us off the bus and only about 4 hrs in HW. We also had 2 days booked for AK. The half with MK and our last day, short one, and got FOP for both. We gave the first day to our friends for FOP and took there navi river ride since we were getting to do it on our last day. Also did the safari twice to see the baby hippo.
