I am planning a trip for my 5th & 6th grade Jr. Beta students. I have 39 kids and 32 adults going on this trip. We are going May 15-18 and spending 3 days in the park with a Disney Youth Education Series event early May 16 in Magic Kingdom. We have parkhopper passes. Everyone is divided into 4 groups based on what rides they are most interested in. Other than all of the kids attending the early event the one day, I am letting the groups go to whichever parks they want each day. The only times that I am requiring everyone to meet up at one place are in the evenings. By doing this, everyone will watch the fireworks at that park and then leave together to go back to our hotel (Pop! Century). This way I don’t have to try to keep track of who has returned to the hotel and who hasn’t. So the plan for the evenings are as follows:
Friday, May 15- Meet at Epcot for Illuminations then stay there for Evening Extra Magic Hours until 11pm.
Saturday, May 16- Meet at Magic Kingdom for Wishes then stay for Evening Extra Magic Hours until 2am.
My question is what would you recommend I do about Sunday evening. There are no Extra Magic Hours that night, and park hours currently are posted as follows: MK- 9am-12am, EP- 9am-9pm, HS-8am-10pm, AK- 9am-8pm
This is our last evening in the parks, and we fly out the next morning at 8am (probably leaving our hotel at 5am or so using Magical Express). I am thinking about closing down HS that night, but I don’t know if I want to require everyone to go see Fantasmic!. My other thought is to just end at MK again because it is later and there are so many more ride options there. Any thoughts? Please feel free to give me any other tips you have on organizing a trip for such a large group. Thanks!
