KBrylczyk Posted November 9, 2010 Share Posted November 9, 2010 Hiya, peoples! Let me get right down to business. I work on a cruise ship and, as such, have limited time on land to go out and have fun. Right now, I am contracted through February 27th, 2011, where I will have a two-month vacation. I sign on to my next ship on May 1st, 2011. In those two months, I am planning a week long trip to LA for myself and a few friends. I've never been to the fabled SoCal and am looking to make the most of it. Right now, the way I see it, there are 5 parks to hit; SFMM, KBF, DL, DCA, and USH. The easiest way would be to fly into LA on a Sunday, hit the parks, one per day, monday through friday, fly home Saturday. Then again, I am unaware of the parks' schedules and have no clue if they'll be open during the week in March or April. I remember someone mentioning that SFMM is only open on weekends in the off season, but I'm not sure when they reopen on the weekdays. Same goes for every other park. As mentioned, I work on a cruise ship and have extremely limited internet access. To get online from the ship I have to pay 10 cents per minute for a connection that is slower than dial-up. Right now I am sitting in Margaritaville mooching their connection and enjoying a quesadilla. The point is, unless I want to spend my vacation budget on internet time planning the vacation, I'm going to need some help. Does anyone have any suggestions in terms of scheduling, what crowds are like that time of year, etc.? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Also, this is in early development, so things can easily be moved around as per your suggestions. Thanks a bunch, guys! - Kyle P.S. - I know its going to be asked, so here you go. I work for Carnival (yeah, booooo, I know) onboard the Carnival Valor. I'm the stage automation technician, meaning I control all of the scenic drops, the lifts, the massive turntable, etc. Basically, anything on the stage that can kill someone is my responsibility, haha.
