Last February (before Covid), I booked a room at BC for this April spring break. When they opened reservations for 2021, I canceled my reservation and rebooked with a TA. The whole planning really got me through last spring. Now it’s approaching and we aren’t feeling comfortable since we all won’t be vaccinated. When they opened 2022 reservations I got that feeling again and we are not going to cancel April, but just move it to next February. We don’t know when we will all be vaccinated so I don’t want to move it to the summer and I am petrified to go during major holidays. So with this decision I went back to the drawing board. I want to sketch out how I think I want our vacation to go before asking for quotes. My deposit for my current trip will be the deposit for February trip. So here is the scenario I would like input on.
We would prefer close proximity to as many parks as possible. DH has been working his butt off this whole year and deserves a relaxing-ish vacation. Instead of doing 6 days at one hotel, I think I want to try a split stay.
Arrive on Presidents Day - our last trip we took first flight out and hit MK and had Chef Mickeys. This was exhausting so that is experience learned. So fly in and have a resort day at Poly, dinner at Captain Cooks or another QS at nearby resort.
Tuesday - MK
Wednesday - arrange for transfer to BC and go to AK - maybe have Ohana that night and either take monorail or uber to BC after dinner - or have dinner at AK and uber to BC.
Saturday-HS (if it’s super busy, that is ok because we already had a day there and we could go back to the pool as that is why we are paying $$$ is to enjoy the resorts also)
Sunday - depart.
Now if we start off at BC and do Poly last we would do AK on Saturday. but we would have to transfer on our MK day, Friday which would kind of stink. I don’t want to do MK on Saturday. From the price standpoint this is a better option, but I think I like the other option as we would have more resort time at Poly in the beginning rather than end.
I need to definitely get some quotes but I think that this is where we are now. Trying to be positive about not going in April. Went onto VRBO last night and booked a beach vacation for this summer to ease some of the pain.
