I feel like I probably shouldn’t post this here, because you all will just enable my desire to add a 4th trip on our A/P.
My daughters (currently 8 & 6) have all of President’s Day week off for their school up here in Indianapolis. They did it last year and are doing it this year, and then discontinuing this random break (because honestly, it’s just kind of dumb and makes parents have to arrange childcare if they work). My husband works as a HS guidance counselor in a different school district and he only has President’s day off.
I’m considering taking just the girls and I and flying out ON President’s Day (Monday) and flying back on Thursday. We have Annual Passes, so no ticket expense, just airfare and hotel. Well, and transportation to/from MCO and food. I’ve never gone to Mardi Gras there and I think we’d like that. We’d probably stay at Cabana Bay, unless I can get an AP discount and move “up” to Sapphire Falls. It would be strange to not have express passes, but my girls are also content with using their wands and riding Seuss and Jimmy freaking Fallon twenty times, so we’d be okay.
How are crowds that week? I know the actual holiday weekend can be nuts, but would we be okay after that to get on some rides? It would be a very quick trip and the focus would be wands and the Mardi Gras parade. Maybe KidZone, ET, shows. I wouldn’t have the option of rider swap without my husband there, so no Velocicoaster or Hagrid’s anyway.
I might be crazy squeezing in another trip between Thanksgiving and June 2023, but I guess that’s why they make the AP’s so affordable-- it gets you traveling there more often.
