I'm thinking of taking sozlet to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter for her 11th birthday. (HP fans will see the significance.) She's never been to any theme park, really wants to, and her birthday is at a time when theme parks are less crowded/ cheaper, I'd imagine. (That's part of what I'm trying to figure out.)
I was thinking of doing this:
But really she likes the books more than the movies and in researching it the lack of any names of actors is a bit suspicious. (I'm guessing it'll be, like, Professor Sprout.)
I'm thinking that maybe going in between this and Thanksgiving weekend (that is, the weekend of November 18th-20th) might be the best way to avoid crowds.
We've already missed the big gala (packages that include it are sold out) but there is fine print about having more chances for that -- so maybe I'll keep an eye out.
It'd be just the two of us, and for a short time. Maybe miss Friday @ school, so Thursday afternoon - Sunday or Friday morning - Sunday.
Some good airfares between here and Orlando, I have that part covered. Just looking for cheap packages and/ or tips on what to buy exactly.
We don't require nice weather, lack of rain would be good but cooler is better really.
I've done some Googling but I'm just not really getting anywhere on deals. Is there anything not-obvious that you can point me to, preferably from previous experience?
