Our four day tickets expire on Sept 26. If we do not use them, the purchase price goes to a future ticket purchase so I suppose it’s not a huge deal if we end up not making this trip. This includes tickets for my older mother and in-laws, so we are hopeful about risk-level being down.
We are currently aiming for the first week in September. I realized the other day that this is the week of labor day and it got me really thinking about the dates. My brother’s wedding is in mid september so we can’t really push it back. We chose early Sept. because our hopes were that crowds would be low (not if it is labor day though!) and the weather not-so-bad, and the possibility of a Halloween after hours events. BUT, we’re also thinking of making it longer than one week- maybe two weeks- in which case taking the kids out of school would be a little more reckless. So now we’re looking at somewhere between August 8-22. Weatherwise and crowdwise, would this be much different than September? I know it is hot in August, I’ve experienced it many times- but is it so much different in early September? Will end-of-the-summer crowds be lighter than labor day crowds? Anything else that I’m missing? My son is voting for August because his bday falls squarly in the middle of that time frame.
