A Crazy idea for 2022. Is this mad?

2021 is off the table for us so we are planning for 2022. As it will be a longer wait for us Iím thinking of doing something special. 2 adults, 2 kids who are now 13 and 11.

We definitely want an onsite minimum 10 night stay, where will depend on free dining if itís back. We will do a few days at Universal and then I had been considering a Disney Cruise but not sure if it will be right for us and itís very expensive so my crazy idea Iím considering is Disneyland in California as well. Is this a mad idea to do east and west coast Disney in the same trip?

I was thinking fly to LAX, 5 nights at an offsite location, fly to Orlando for 2 weeks mixture of Disney and Universal. My heart is saying great idea that will be amazing. Head is saying stupid idea

Any thoughts or anyone done this? We donít want a just a west coast trip at this point and may explore this more when the kids are older.

Me too. It sounds fantastic. If the wallet/annual leave allows it then go for it. Enjoy!

We've done this and really enjoyed it. We had 5 days in Vegas then a couple of weeks in FL Disney (did that twice) Then had a week in SF travelling then 10 days at FL Disney. Loved it. Go for it, trip of a lifetime (but I bet you end up doing it again&#128522

Thanks Iíve got an extra year to save as we were supposed to go next year so with an offsite Disneyland hotel then financially it should be doable. Quite a bit to weigh up but plenty of time to plan. Itís hard to get an idea of Disneyland pricing at the moment though and getting from LAX to Disneyland Iíve no idea about as I wouldnít get a car for that part.

It sounds wonderful - if you have the funds go for it! Disneyland in Anaheim in my opinion is better than WDW, although much smaller.

Just a thought - if you go to LAX first you will be fighting against the jet lag a lot more than if you do MCO first. They also have the Alaskan cruises on the West Coast if that is of interest.

Also plan carefully when you go to Disneyland - they tend to close the big rides down at points to put on and take off holiday overlays which can be annoying if you wanted to ride space mountain or haunted mansion.

I would say itís mad

If you had a much longer trip, maybe.

But it would be two expensive sets of tickets, extra cost and a day spent travelling.

Both are fantastic destinations in their own right so Iíd plan two separate holidays and enjoy the many attractions both have to offer in more detail (or enjoy many more local attractions than you otherwise would be able to with such short stays).

I live by the motto.. "you only live once right?"

If it's something you want to do, then go right ahead and book it... it will be a trip to never forget

In regards on getting from LAX to Disnleyland, uber will be your best friend in LA!

Why not, as long as you're happy with the travelling and the budget.

We did Universal Hollywood on a day's stopover (actually 13 hours, landed early am) coming back from Hawaii.

We also did a few days in Hong Kong on the way to Bali & Gili, wonderful experiences and made for a really special trip.

Enjoy

Thanks for the views. Lots to consider

My next client in a minute is from LA. Will see what she says about jet lag
