Mobile End of Feb / Start of Mar 2020

Usually go late sept/early Oct but pricing flights and seem reasonable for end feb-start Mar. Hotel prices are through the roof. Am I missing the fact theres a national holiday or something? Shorter stay working out more expensive that our usual 2 weeks

Spring break. I think it starts from Presidents Day 17th Feb and runs till nearly Easter.

Others may be more knowledgable than me.

They might be. Spring break seems to last for ages and it depends how many have that break as to how busy the parks will be.

Try having a look at the busy day guides or Orlando informer website for universal crowd calendar.

Universal has Mardi Gras on and I think disney might have run disney events on.

We are earlier in February, however, Orlando informer do what looks like a brilliant universal ticketed event with access late to the parks at the end of the month, Id have loved to have done that but we are stuck to school holidays.

Are your dates set?

We are Aer Lingus flights for the first time in Feb 8-15. I was really happy with our price.

Where were you hoping to stay? We are onsite at universal.

We have priced our usual place Pointe Resort and its coming in $1700. We are Annual Pass holders for universal so get discount for their hotels. The thing is they charge for parking per night despite the fact we have the annual pass that allows us to park for free at the theme parks. A bit ironic.

Have you been in feb before?

Febuary is new for us. What about you?

We are passholders at Universal as well, I'd been looking at annual passholder rates, we got RPR for 173 for one night and an excellent deal, cheaper than aph rates for aventura through BA. Pass holder rates are only out to 13.2.20

We've just booked Rosen Pointe Orlando for the summer, we booked via BA for that as well as their price was way lower than anything else I could find, have you tried BA? Is Rosen Pointe Orlando good? We normally stay at the Rosen Plaza but it is full.
