Great report and I’m so glad I stumbled across this. I’m currently planning almost this exact trip for May of 2019! We will be on the east coast for a wedding so I’m anxiously awaiting the release of the tickets for HP and the cursed child. My daughter will be 9.5 and I hope she can handle the two shows in one day. We are planning the bike tour of Central Park and the Natural Hisotry Museum and also taking the train to DC before heading to the wedding. I would love to pick your brain on what is reasonable pricing for hotels and the HP tickets. Sounds like I should just buy through the official website, no packages ? We are going the week before Memorial Day and so far prices look pretty good for airfare but the hotels are giving me a bit of sticker shock.
