So I have, and always will, remained optimistic to the bitter end…but I think it is time I solidify a back up plan for our April 25-May 1 trip. While Disney and Delta have not yet officially cancelled our plans, its time I weigh my options, especially when the prez has already recommended distancing through Apr 31. So looking ahead, I just can’t survive the summer heat and the crowds, so I am looking into Sept/Oct. AoA Little Mermaid is already sold out in some of those weeks. I think I have narrowed it down to Sept 19-25 or Sept 26-Oct 2 to get the most comparable hotel and flight costs.
What would YOU do? Hold the current hotel booking until the bitter end when your money is automatically refunded to you, airline issues a eCredit, and you’ve lost all hope? I could call Disney and book a just-in-case hotel room in Sept with a deposit. Although my preference would be to go through Undercover Tourist since they have been exceptional. But UT would want the whole cost upfront, and without cancelling the initial booking (3 rooms total), that would be a big chunk of money tied up for a month.
Would you just throw in the towel already and rebook everything (flight and hotel) to Sept while prices and availability are still there? To add to the mix, my daughter starts kindergarten in the fall. Pulling her from school just as she is adjusting to all-day, 5-day-a-week school is just not ideal.
Or would you wait a few more days to a week to see how things evolve?
I know no one has the crystal ball, but I would love your whole-hearted opinions to help me make the best decision for my family. Thanks
