Look into renting points. You can find private deals with DVC owners and middlemen companies that rent points which is a little less risky more professional. You may be able to stay at the DVC for as low as $125-$150 a night that way.
I'm liking the last couple posts. My husband and I are taking our family hopefully the first week of December for our daughter's 5th birthday. We're thinking of staying the 2nd - 5th of December (M-Th). Touringplans says those days are 1's. That can't be true, is it?
I know this isn't about the dates, but we've stayed at GCH and loved it, but haven't stayed at the DH since the renovations. Which do you recommend?
As far as the hotels. I would pick the DLH for you daughter. It's very themed for fun, while the GCH is more reserved. Hopefully it's warm and she can go on the waterslides.
I have a pretty good idea of what the crowds will look like on opening day of the new Fantasy Faire, but Id like to hear what some other people think as well. I normally avoid the higher crowds like the plague, but Im throwing caution to the wind and going on 3/11-13. Im also taking a group of people for their first visit. We're crazy, right? Do you think the crwods will be very intense? How do you think the rest of the park, or DCA, will be affected? What do you think the days before & after will be like since they are normally pretty low-crowd days? This is new territory for me. Thanks!
I wouldn't worry to much. It not an exciting attractions that can pull in people who can drive themselves to the parks like Star Tours or Radiator Springs Racers did. Also when new attractions open the tend to cluster the crowds around them and empty the rest of the park. Sort of like 400 people waiting in one lines instead of 20 more people in 20 other lines.
I suspect the Royal Hall will have a solid hour wait. The Theater show may be had to get a seat for as people try it out. Also lots of people just wandering the plaza looking around.
No need to worry about huge crowds and spererate lines at the gates.
Any thoughts on crowd level at both DCA and DLR from 4/1 - 4/4? Which park would be best to visit on these days? Thanks.
So on Monday and Wednesday avoid DCA more specifically Carsland in DCA. If you want to get in the RSR FP line or go to into DCA for non Carsland attractions it won't be aweful. Preferably start at DL these days. On Tuesday and Thursday go to DCA.
Plan to arrive early in any case and enter the parks nearly 30 minutes early for Rope Drop. When going to DCA you can get in the RSR FP distribution line during Rope Drop.
Thanks for the great advice! We were there on the weekend Carsland opened and it was bonkers crowded! Do you anticipate it both parks being as crowded this time around?
Take advantage of the first couple hours the park is open and use FastPass.
what about the first week of may? with the gumball rally on the 4th, is that first weekend usually busy?
How would March 25-28 be? Thanks.
While there are some rehabs and lots of small projects being done to prepare for summer the weather is pleasant and it's a great time fo year to visit.
I am doing a story on the mouse addict app. If anyone is willing to be interviewed please email: [email protected]. Thank you!!
Is anyone aware of anything major (besides Halloween) going on 10/29-11/3?Thanks!
