12 days until our family's 4th trip to our favourite place on Earth! Can't wait!!!
For our first 2 trips, we stayed at WL which was AMAZING, but so $$. Our 3rd trip was at POR, and we were very disappointed in the efficiency of the bussing to the parks compared to the service at the WL. We considered switching resorts mid-trip but the cost was prohibitive...
This trip we are staying at ASM, because we are part of a group event and that is the hotel where all participants are staying...I'm even more concerned about time lost due to travel to/between parks because of the location of the hotel, and that we have only 3 park days.
I am 99% certain we will have a rental car, and am wondering if the time saved driving ourselves to/between parks is worth it.
Park Day 1 we are doing AK until noon then EP until 8 pm (need an early night because our off-site event the next day starts brutally early).
Park Day 2 we are doing MK until 2 pm (my girls are in a pre-parade at 1:30), then HS until 7:30-8 pm (not staying for Fantasmic), then over to EP in time for Illuminations (since we will have missed it on Day 1) - EMH that night so we will stay until 11.
Park Day 3 we are at MK all day.
Willing to pay extra for preferred parking if it will help at all...
