Nou gaan ons braai!

Thanks for the heads up, and we certainly understand 'well traveled'. Daughter is 4 currently, will be 5 when we go to Disney. To date, she has been on 22 airplane flights, including 3 trips to Africa.I’ve read this all, and aside from being in awe of your spreadsheets, it looks like you have chosen a pretty great plan for your family.
Do me one solid though. You’re daughter is 5. At travel time? Or 6 at travel time. Whichever, have Disney movie watching nights between then and now semi regularly. Load her up with these awesome movies (we still watch some of them as adults with our college aged kids). So that she will form relationships with the characters and be invested in her favorites. AND YOU GO TO A CHARACTER MEAL WITH THAT SWEET BABY!
It’s overpriced. It’s not the greatest food always for adults. But you need to do this. I promise. Read up on which ones are best food for adults. Baby girl will be fine with a waffle. I used to love GF Park Faire breakfast but that was quite a while back.
I’m saying this because you are in the gilded age of taking your child to Disney World. The magic you will see in her eyes will not be forgotten. Even when she’s walking down the aisle. (Just made myself cry a bit LOL). Sounds ridiculous but if you even only go back every two or three years (like we do), it will happen. My kids are well traveled (husband is German) but the excitement they still retain about WDW is endearing. To say the least.
Be flexible. Have a plan but let the day happen. Take a long rest each day, mid day, to break up the walking and heat.
You are going to have a fabulous time. Wait until you and mom see it through her eyes!
We will look into the character meals again, but I just don't think we can justify it. We are booking FP's for princess meet and greets when available, so that should get us most of that. She is a princess nut.
Regarding Disney movies, we watch them all, we have movie nights each week, and have seen most of them all several times. She is currently on a huge 'Disney Descendants' kick, so those have been heavy in rotation.
