Betty’s December Trip – PREP198

Betty’s December Trip – PREP198

Betty just returned from an adults-only trip to Disney World and Universal that didn’t go quite as planned. Hear all about that.

I also have a quick tip to help you catch more nighttime shows even during shorter trips.

These are notes from this episode. There’s much more info included in the audio so be sure to listen to the episode for a better explanation.

Quick tip of the day

Emailed from Libby S.:
“Since we had a short trip (only 3 nights) seeing all the nighttime shows wasn’t an option.

However, we were able to see Jingle Bell Jingle Bam and Illuminations in the same night.

The shows were scheduled an hour apart (8:30 for JBJB and 9:30 for illuminations).

We walked from Hollywood Studios to Epcot and were able to see both shows.

I would never be able to do this with my kids but since it was just 2 adults we were able to get through the crowd and see both shows!

I thought this maybe helpful to those with short trips who want to see the nighttime shows.”
