But did everything start then or was some delayed? That’s what I can’t work out.
I’m already leaning towards putting the Universal dates at the end of the trip in the first few days of December anyway, so maybe it doesn’t matter. Except I’d rather finish my trip in November, if possible.
be aware that Pop Warner moved over to Universal. They show up the first weekend of December and stay about 10 days! It was chaos at the hotels last year. I’ll never go back at that time, even though it’s my birthday.
However, inside the parks it wasn’t too bad. They had competitions all day. Instead of being in the parks right after the Pop Warner stuff, they had exclusive parties after the parks close. (7pm / 8pm - 10pm/11pm) a couple nights. I really felt that made a difference for day guests.
(I’m still not going back during that week though!!)
Yes. I spoke with the TMs at Aventura when I stayed there in February. I was talking about how I’d wished I’d been there for December. I assumed Pop Warner only did the value places. The TM said they stated at the moderates too.
It’s as busy as you think it will be. It’s never going to be “Disney” busy as it’s not as big. However, you’ll feel the crowds. Staying at RPR you’d get the UXP. That will really help
My friend probably isn’t going to ride much there, that’s why I really wanted to avoid having her pay for a deluxe. But on the other hand, she wouldn’t have to wait so long for me if I had express pass, and she’ll probably ride a few things.
