Nine Night Version of Basic 2017 December Itinerary

By Dave Shute

I used to offer a detailed, multi-thousand word nine night version of my standard eight night Basic December Itinerary here.

Frankly, though, it took the same itinerary largely identically one day longer–to a second Monday–but shifted the material on Second Sunday from first thing in the morning to the afternoon, and made second Monday the travel day, with an optional park return first thing that morning.

So for simplicity, to have a nine night visit, do everything you see in the eight night itinerary and its To-Do List, except:

  • Add a hotel night
  • Change the Second Sunday FastPass+ times to later in the morning or the early afternoon.
  • If you are going to use the option to return to a favorite park on the Second Monday morning, be sure to add a day to your tickets before Second Sunday
  • If you are using the Dining Plan, add a table service meal. For more family dining, add Chef Mickey’s (mouse meet)at the Contemporary Resort on one of your Magic Kingdom days–e.g. Second Saturday for lunch –or Akershus (princesses in Norway) on one of your Epcot days, e.g. Tuesday lunch

(Note that all my itineraries labeled “Basic” are four the four weeks beginning the Saturday after Thanksgiving 2017. If you aren’t going one of those weeks, see Other Itineraries for alternatives the rest of the year, which are published about six months ahead.
