My ten year old son and I will be visiting Disney World for the first time in just about three weeks. We're from northern California and visit Disneyland three to five times a year since my son was four. On the last day of our trip (June 15th), we plan on spending some time in the Magic Kingdom then heading to the airport for a 3:15 flight. So I guess I have a couple questions. About what time should we be back at the hotel to make sure we get back to the airport and not be rushing? I'm thinking noon. And what method of transportation? I'm thinking a taxi would be fastest. I'm sure it'll cost $50 or so, and I'm fine with that. Or would I be better off renting a car? It would be about $120 for the week to rent a small car. I figure we could drive ourselves between the parks, but would that be easier or save any time over taking the bus system from our hotel?
The reason we want to visit the Magic Kingdom one last time before leaving is because we are not flying directly home to San Jose, but flying to Orange County and will be spending three days at the Disneyland Resort. We are planning on going on a few rides that both parks share and try to ride the same rides in the same day in both parks. Plus get pictures in front of those rides and shared landmarks. We should be able to get to Disneyland and have a few hours to spare before closing. Assuming there are no major flight delays.
23 days to go!
