So once we found out that our Disney year would be a bakers dozen of a Disney year, we have to figure out which 13 months will give us the most bang for our buck. One of our biggest considerations is how to take advantage of the most paid holidays. So, Jessica being Jessica, she make a graph:
Each option definitely has its pros and cons.
For us, option two is our winner. Heres why:
- Our employer gives us the week between Christmas and New Years off, and option two was the only one to take advantage of the two free vacation weeks.
- New Years Eve fireworks twice!
- Our wedding anniversary is January 1st, so two anniversaries with Mickey!
- Mid January is one of the slowest times at Disney, so empty parks over MLK weekend twice!
So now that we know the months we will have to play with, the real planning can begin!
