So, my kids didn’t have this Monday off for Columbus Day. Instead, the have Wednesday through Friday off next week. I was asking them yesterday on the way home from school what they’d like to do next week (in my head I’m thinking local, but fun stuff…the Texas State Fair is going on right now, so I had thought maybe that!) but my almost-eight-year-old responded with “Harry Potter World!! Disney World!!” Of course I just chuckled at her BUT started spinning my gears thinking “could we do that?!? How fun!!” My DH wouldn’t be able to take off work so last minute but I think I could get my mom to come with us. So it’d be her, myself and my four kiddos. Resort availability is pretty limited. It would probably have to be CR, GF, BW or offsite somewhere. I was looking at ADR availability late last night for today and was SHOCKED by what popped up - BOG dinner, B&C, CM, etc. I don’t have an AP so I can’t check FP availability but I’m wondering if, last minute, equally jaw dropping FP+ become available?? How crazy would I be to book a trip that leaves in 6 days?!? I’m thinking we’d do 3 day hoppers. Check in late afternoon Wednesday, check out Saturday.
Has anyone every done a trip this short notice?? How was it?? Also, we have a trip booked this coming February with 9 day park tickets (no hoppers). I haven’t looked at AP pricing/value at all but if we decided to go next week would it make sense to upgrade to AP?? I also haven’t checked the weather so it’s possible all of the hurricane related weather could completely squash this plan before it gets off the ground.
