DH and I were last at USO/IOA in 1998 or 1999. None of our kids have ever been there. Our last real full family vacation was August 2019. We moved this year and that has provided a lot of novelty and new experiences, but we want a vacation on the books to look forward to.
Our first choice is a cruise, but there is honestly no way I can plan that right now. Between yo-yo covid stuff and my oldest kids’ labile schedules, I don’t want to book something we either can’t keep or have to tweak so much it doesn’t even look like what we started with.
Florida seems like a very reasonable destination. We can drive there, change the number in our party, change dates, etc., with relative ease (compared to a cruise).
We homeschool, and college course wrap up the last week of April, so pretty much any of May would be an option.
I’m thinking a Saturday to the following Sunday. A few (4?) nights on property for early access (that’s a thing, right?) and move to a rental for the balance (to spread out better).
I’m interested in Cabana Bay. It looks like it would be fun. My DH and DS19 are very into that retro thing.
Since we have nothing to compare it to, we aren’t likely to be disappointed if it isn’t back to 100%.
We aren’t into Harry Potter, but if a ride was particularly novel we’d probably enjoy it.
What do I need to start looking at and considering?
