Our vacations normally revolve around this annual convention that is in a different location every year. We add on a week and do the tourist thing. Hotels are usually awesome and cheap. I’ve been practically nowhere interior US, so it is all new and exciting.
The location this summer, Kansas City, is unexciting so we only added on a couple of days. The location next summer is Houston. But we live in Texas and can go there whenever.
So, we decided to add a second vacation for this year and next year. Early Feb, we went to Universal for a week and got the Annual Pass. Next January we are going to Disney for two weeks and will pop over to Universal with our annual pass.
But, this summer’s convention is cancelled. So my planned vacation was thrown out the window. (like a lot of peoples) We are all very disappointed. DD has friends that she sees once a year there. DH and I both find it relaxing.
My mind is returning to Universal. Our passes had only been active for a couple of weeks before they closed. So, they will be active for one year minus a couple of weeks after they open.
We have a 9-year-old who is homeschooled, so can go during the school year. But, my work is busy during the last three months of the year, so vacations then are frowned on. I hate hot/humid weather.
I was looking at the crowd calendar. Mid-September before the Halloween stuff starts doesn’t look too bad. Has anyone been then? Opinions?
We wouldn’t go if masks are required. But, a nice thing about Universal is that you don’t have to plan things 180 days and 60/30 days ahead.
