Thinking about booking a last minute short trip with my husband and 3 children (8, 5, 3). Our local budget airline has direct flights for $100 round trip Sep 26-30 or Oct 2-6. I’ll be honest, haven’t really been watching all things Disney as of late and this only popped onto my radar because of how cheap the flights are, so I did not realize that the 50th anniversary celebration was starting Oct 1st. Now I’m trying to decide the best option for us and I’m looking for opinions. Pros and Cons that I’ve come up with below:
Super Low crowds
Slightly cheaper hotels
No early hours for hotel guests or extra magic hours at night
Extra hours for hotel guests
Night time celebration shows
First week of 50th Anniversary celebration = maybe big crowds & longer waits???
What am I missing? What would you Disney experts do? Honestly, the 50th anniversary celebration doesnt really pull me one way or another, but more so juggling the crowds versus the special hours for hotel guests.
Thanks in advance!
