Bringing my mom on a happy retirement/happy birthday surprise first trip to WDW in early December with my 30 year old sister and my 2 sons (9 & almost 2). I’m paying for the whole trip (aside from my sister’s flight from halfway across the country - straight to MCO). I’m driving down (approx 12 hours) with my mom and the kids, I booked 2 rooms at All Star Movies for 5 nights, and got 6-day base tickets.
Planned on doing MVMCP one night. ($459.03 for our party) If we don’t do MVMCP my mom won’t see fireworks at the castle at all.
My sister (who hasn’t been to Disney in like 20 years and has never been to Universal) told me it is her “life dream” to go to Hogwarts. Now I feel obligated to make this happen for her but since I am on a limited budget something has to go. Or I need a tip/trick for getting super discounted 1-day P2P tickets for universal (I’m aware that these literally do not exist).
MVMCP will cost $459.03
Universal will cost $707.17 just for tickets – without factoring in the cost of possibly staying an additional night or 2 at an off-site hotel closer to Universal.
Anyone have any solutions/out-of-the-box ideas?
