We were supposed to be returning to Florida may 2014 however due to a planned but somehow still unexpected 3rd baby (due nov 2013) this has now been pushed back to may/aug 2015. Distraught at so long without Florida I have been reading trip reports and just read a Christmas one which has brought back my longing to have a Christmas trip.
Have found a fairly decent price, I think for 1 week flying out on 27th dec 2014 and returning on 3rd jan 2015 staying at embassy suites at lake buena vista. (£3,500 for 2 adults 2 children and 1 infant, does that sound ok?) the baby at that point will be 14 months which doesn't sound too horrific for the flight.
My questions are, I know it will be busy that week but will we have missed all the festivities such as MVMCP (have done MNSSHP so did fancy trying the Christmas) or will there still be a lot on. Really want kids to see the Christmas decorations but what else is on. Will it be too busy to enjoy especially for a little one. Do you need special tickets for New Year's Eve or does it just get too mobbed?
If we are returning within the year would we be better with annual passes rather than the uk ultimate tickets twice. It does seem a jump for the annual passes once you want to add the water parks on ( we obviously wouldn't want those at Christmas but may well in the summer)
Also anyone stayed at the embassy suites lake buena vista before? Are there restaurants nearby and can you walk to DTD? Booking that works out £1000 cheaper than flights only with virgin, going off this years prices.
Any advice, even if don't do it!!!
