Premium Plan for One Night Just for the Tours, LaNouba, etc.??

Hey all, I'm thinking about splitting up my 2-week stay in December with a 1-night Premium plan in the middle.

If I'm looking at this correctly, I'll have 3 meals, two snacks, a refillable mug, unlimited tours, and unlimited recreation.

I'm thinking I could go to the front desk early, get my new key, and start the first morning with the backwoods Segway tour, then head to the MK for the latest time on Keys to the Kingdom, then rent a water mouse on Bay Lake, then have a nice dinner, then go to Cirque that night.

Then the next morning, start off with the Steam Train tour, then have a nice breakfast somewhere, then maybe the family Magic Tour after breakfast and the Behind the Seeds tour that afternoon, or do the parasailing with Sammy Duval, then a nice dinner and finish off the 2nd evening with the Private Fireworks viewing area.

I have an annual pass, so I would just buy a 1-day ticket and put that away.

I'll be staying at the campground.

What do ya think?? Has anyone done this?? I'm a super frequent visitor, so park time is not huge for me, and I'm thinking this might be a fun couple of days

this is a very interesting idea, sounds like a great way to get a lot for your money. What tours can you book with the premium plan?

I was thinking of doing this too...do they give you a certificate for Cirque and you exchange it at the box office? Do you have to use it that one day or does it say good until XXXX? Does anyone have any experience with this?

I was able to select our 12 seats yesterday with a CM @ the cirque box office line. Since all of us are on the plan, the CM was able to pull up our reservations as reference and assigned the best seats she could find. She told me that the vouchers are inside our reservation packs. we can exchange them for our tickets from the box office anytime after 11am of the day your show. She also informed me that all guests must be seated 10 minutes before the show time. We need to allow exact time at the box office.

I am officially done with the planning phase. Can't wait to enjoy it now!!

It's good from your package check in date until your package check out date. Please note that there's no shows on Sundays and Mondays.

That's why I was wondering if it's a certificate you receive because I wanted my check in day to be on Sunday. Since, there is no shows Sunday or Monday could I use them Tuesday?

I doubt it. Since it is a package element, they would expire at midnight on your checkout day.

Also, a Sunday, Monday combo wouldn't be good, since very few of the tours run on Sunday.

A Monday, Tuesday combo, or Tuesday, Wed combo would work much better.

our check in date is a Friday which makes it easier to plan with the show. Have you considered getting the plan on the last 2 nights of your stay?

I think to really make this worth it, it has to be somewhere in the middle of your stay as you will want to get started early the first morning and also do things till late the 2nd day. Also, I pull a camper, so I have some setup and breakdown

So here's what I'm doing. I arrive late Friday, Saturday is setup (lots of Christmas decorations), Sunday and Monday are chill time and go putzing around on the golf cart. Tuesday morning starts new reservation, go to office get new keys, then play really hard with everything planned on Tuesday/Wednesday. Then again at some point on Wednesday morning pick up new keys again for the rest of my stay.

To OP:

LOL!!! I was just running the numbers and such for the exact same idea last night.

I tried to estimate the time it would take to get to and from separate events, the time for the events themselves, and then try to still fit in three meals.

I'm still not sure it will work out to benefit us though.

Need to put more time into the calcs and plans.
