    Hello again!  So far your itinerary looks great!  I think Friday is a great day for Blizzard Beach.  As for Typhoon Lagoon & Characters in flight, you may want to be as flexible as possible.  Characters in flight will not run if there is the slightest bit of wind - I believe the limit is 22 mph - which I think feels like a slight breeze on the ground.  The lines are not shaded (so keep in mind it will be hot) and if the wind picks up and shuts down, you'll have to exit the line with no voucher.  This means that the next time you try, you'll have to start waiting all over again.

    I think I would plan on getting there early on the 24th if the weather seems fair - if not, head to Typhoon Lagoon that day and save Characters in Flight for the 26th.  I believe the hours are from 10:30 - 11pm Sunday through Thursday and it's open until midnight on Friday and Saturday.  Although a night flight would be beautiful, I think I would stick with the morning time for your first ride, just to avoid longer lines and make sure you get the chance to experience it.

    Before you leave your resort, you can call 407-828-3150 to see if Characters in Flight is operating; however, keep in mind that the wind may pick up or die down during your travel time.  I know - that doesn't help for planning purposes. 

    It's fortunate that you have two free days built into your schedule.  I hope you get the opportunity to experience this new attraction!

    Have a magical vacation!

After spending 25 years in RI, my husband and I relocated to GA with our youngest, who is now in high school. I took my first trip to Walt Disney World when I was 11 and I have traveled many times since then with all different party sizes. From creating our first itinerary as a honeymooner to later creating magical experiences for our multigenerational family gatherings, every aspect of planning a vacation has been pure joy to me.  Learn More About Diane
