Would Tuesday Feb. 4 be a good day? I'm assuming yes. No holiday or schools out.

A donkey is a domesticated member of the Equidae or horse family.

Burbank Airport is pretty small, so you should be out of there pretty quickly once you deplane. Seeing that your first day at the park is a Sunday, you should be able to get there within an hour of park opening if everything goes smoothly. There typically isn’t much traffic on Sunday mornings between Burbank and Valencia, and the park typically doesn’t get crowded until the afternoons on Sundays.

Burbank uses airstairs, so you can deplane from the back door of the plane. But if you’re Landing 30 min prior to park opening, unless you have no checked bag and your ride waiting for you, 1hr after park opens might be slightly aggressive. Definitely within the first 2hrs though.

I'm definitely looking forward to the airstairs!!! I'm going to feel like the President! Hopefully I land 30 minutes prior to the park opening. I have to change planes in Dallas and I only have 45 minutes to do so. I hear DFW is a crappy airport and if my connecting flight is in a different terminal I'm pretty much screwed... so fingers crossed that I can make it!

^ When I've gone in the winter months, I've only seen Superman open once. Usually they have the midway for the ride closed off.
