Easter - Newbie - Help
 
DD15 will be competing at a cheer competition as US/IOA the weekend after Easter (4/5-7). We are planning a family trip down for it, our first to the Darkside. I know that it will be crazy busy with it being the week after Easter but with the competition coinciding with their break from school we thought we'd give it a try.

We'll arrive Tues 4/2 through Sun 4/7, competition is Sat/Sun. We are staying at AKV since we have points avail and a car since we'll drive down. I cannot justify $300+/night for on-site when our DVC is available. I've priced out tix on both UT and Costco, we'll probably go with the UT 4 day/4 park option.

A few ??

When will park hours be available?

We will not have EP, if we plan to be there 30-45min before park opening for off-site guests, take a mid-day break and return in the evening will we manage to fit in most of the main attractions in 2 full days and 2 partial days (cheer comp)?

Is the Power Pass available to non-Florida residents? Would Easter week be a black out date?

Think that's all for now. Feel free to share any other tips/advice for us newbies!

TIA

Looks like Easter is blacked out for power passes.


Not sure when the new calendar will be out, but you can go backwards on the present calendar to see what hours were like last Easter.

Thanks for the link!

Duh, why didn't I think of that to go backwards?! That's how I do WDW planning until they release hours too.
