So … something just happened that I’m not really willing to talk about. It’s nothing anyone needs to worry about. Except maybe me. Anyhoo, it got me thinking: should I be aiming to go to Orlando three times this year?
I’ve idly had a look at pricing and I reckon I could do an ultra-low budget six night stay for under $3,000. I’d fly economy (shudder) from the UK, and I’d stay at Endless Summer (great AP rates) because there’s nothing affordable at WDW. I’d eat cheaply. No merch. Just parks.
I don’t know what the hell is going on with COVID right now. Everyone in the UK seems to think it’s over. I don’t think there are testing or quarantine restrictions for the flight home. Probably testing to fly out to the US.
This is literally a completely random, not remotely thought-through idea. So I’m just putting it out there.
I think your answers to those questions are enough to make a decision. Although, you might have other questions to tack on such as, is there something better I should be doing with the money, etc.
UK’s numbers for Covid seem to indicate it is on the back side of Omicron…so, probably won’t be long and it will essentially be over there. (It will take longer in the U.S. simply because of the sheer size, but I expect we’ll essentially see the end of the pandemic by summer, and we’ll cross over into just being endemic.)
Sarah says she can look after Calvin. She is the dealbreaker. If she’d said no, the whole thing would be a non-starter. But she didn’t. So the decision becomes mine. And I have zero self-discipline and no impulse control.
