The Best Laid Plans of Mice and Men…
Our original plan was to plan a trip for this September. That was supposed to be before Galaxy’s Edge opened. We figured Galaxy’s Edge could be on our next trip (whenever that would be…probably 2022 or beyond). The (staring to) cool temps and the (normally) thinned out crawds would have been perfect for the girl’s first trip.
But then… Iger goes and ruins everything for me (as usual)
With GE opening on August 29th, there is no way in Hades we could take that trip in September.
Trying to re-plan and was hoping for some thoughts/advice about alternate trip dates.
I have basically narrowed it down to 2:
February 2020 or
May 6thish 2019.
The temp would be amazing in February…but I fear still unreasonable crowds (especially with the Rise of Resistance not slated to open until later in 2019).
The week of May 6th this year seems to be moderate to almost light crowds (according to most crowd calendars)… but, it will be a little warmer than we’d hoped for.
My question is: how confident are we in the TP crowd calendar’s guesses for May 6th through May 9th ?
Can’t afford to stay on-site, so fining a room at this short notice is no issue. But, when i looked just for fun, it seemed like all the value resort rooms were booked (or at least “This room type is unavailable for the dates, party size or offer selected”… should that concern me?
Can only afford 3-day non-park hopper tickets (plan to do maybe HS, MK, rest day, AK ?). Not too worried about FP since the parks shouldn’t be that crowded… (and also can’t afford expensive food, so not at all worried about dining reservations).
Just want to hear some thoughts about expected crowds during that week this May.
