Due to a change in jobs I am having to change our Disney trip from 12/8 - 12/15 to 12/26 - 1/1/19. I'm wondering how challenging this is going to be. I would love to hear your stories and suggestions of how to tour the parks amidst all the crowds. A little background on us: My name is Tracy and I'm 55. My adult daughter, Brandi, is 31. We are travelling buddies. We have been going to Disney yearly since 2012. We have always stayed on property until last year when we ventured off property. We decided that we actually liked staying of property. I had a reservation at WBC through Vacation Upgrades. I tried to change it to our revised dates but they are already booked. So, I'm looking for recommendations for lodging. I would really like a condo with 1 or 2 bedrooms. I plan on renting a car so lodging doesn't have to be super close. Something reasonable in price is more important than close proximity to the parks. I would consider a hotel if it has a kitchenette. We really want to cook a few meals to help with costs. Also, would love to hear suggestions on touring with the crowds. We usually go in September and understand this is the "slow" time. I'm feeling overwhelmed with the thought of trying to enjoy the parks among so many people. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.
