What is it about President Day weekend?


#1

Why are the prices so high during that weekend? Are the crowds really that large? Anyone have an explanation to this??


#2

In some areas, schools are out for that week. I think in the few years before the big recession, there was a swell in the number of people there during that time… Not sure about now.


#3

Anytime schools are out the prices go crazy. Same for the cruising industry.:pirate:


#4

Its is kinda busy because local schools have off so people use their Annual Passes


#5

I know it’s a 4-day weekend for most public schools, at least in our state. I am telling you, being a teacher I notice these things, whenever school is out for ANY holiday weekend prices automatically jump to an ultra premium. It’s FRUSTRATING! Even when it’s just a little holiday with only a Monday off, they surround the whole week around that with higher rates… for everything (especially airfare!)


#6

It is so true. DW and I are both teachers and get ripped off anytime we want to travel! :angry:


#7

prices go up whenever schools are out :sad: because the crowds are bigger


#8

We don’t have a President’s Day holiday here, so friends of ours were unprepared a couple years ago when they arrived at WDW that week-end and crowds were so high that they missed out on many rides.

Two years later, we now celebrate a holiday on the same day here called “Family Day”, so Canadian kids are now out of school as well and may add to the congestion of that week. :blink:
