Orlando itinerary with a 3.5 year old. Help please.
I have a conference in Orlando in mid May. SO has vacation to burn, so we're all going to go.
is where we're staying.
We're flying in at 2pm on Monday. We're all free Tuesday and Wednesday. I have to do conference stuff Thursday-Sunday. (But this isn't my major conference, so it is entirely possible that I can skip out 1/2 days. But I won't know for another few weeks what the schedule is.) We're flying out Sunday early afternoon.
We're renting a car.
The hotel has a "Kids Club" if Dad wants a break or if Mom/Dad might escape for a dinner on one of the non-conference-dinner nights.
We did Disneyland
last summer to some success and based on my 2-decade-old memories, I think Disney will be a hit for 3.5 year old.
So what to do?
1. Is Legoland good for a 3.5 year old (who likes Legos of course)? Adult tickets
are $70, kids are $60. But it is closed on Tuesday and Wednesday when we're there, so if it is worth doing, that might be a Dad-only day.
2. Or would it be most economical to just focus on Disney? (It appears
that more days are cheaper...
days adult kid
1 $90.53 $84.14
2 $178.92 $165.08
3 $247.08 $227.91
4 $258.80 $238.56)
3. How many days are Disney become too many days at Disney? Hypothetically they could do 5 full days.
4. Other stuff worth seeing with a 3.5 year old in Orlando? And how to balance that with Disney?
(Also: I'm not a huge fan of SeaWorld and the animal stuff. I hear that Universal has a Dr. Seuss thing, but I don't think that our kid would be interested in the rest. AND I have another conference in Orlando in November, so it is entirely possible that we could spend Thanksgiving there together if it is so great.)
Oh wise MeFites, please tell me what to do.
