We were originally planning on going Sept/Oct next year for 3 weeks - 2 weeks Orlando, 1 week Hawaii on the way home.
My son is now thinking of going to Uni next year and if we go as planned he will miss about a week of Uni. The other alternative is to go in July when Uni has a 4 week break.
I have heard terrible things about the crowds at this time of the year. Thinking we would stay offsite at Disney for 10 nights, head straight for the big rides and get fastpasses, skip any rides that we aren't particularly interested in. Stay onsite at Universal for 4 nights to make use of their Express Pass and maybe avoid the parks altogether on 4th July.
I know it will be super crowded but is it do-able? The heat won't really bother us as we are used to humid weather in summer and travel regularly to Thailand.
I know it will also cost more - but it costs so much to come from Australia anyway that it probably won't make that much of a difference.
Any tips for making it manageable at this time? Thanks.
