**amend to description as seemed to have peeved off a few people by using "EASTER HOLIDAY" **

Flying out on 13th April from Gatwick and returning from Orlando (MCO) on 23rd April, works out as £253.27 per person which is very reasonable for Orlando in the school holidays for 2 adults and 2 children.

The price is hand luggage only and flying direct with BA via etravel website - can be found searching these dates in skyscanner.

Have a play around with the dates, it seems the average price is around £300ish so you may be lucky if you're interested.
I think that’s a cracking price - I would avoid theme parks around Easter time though. The crowds are absolutely HUGE!

Same here, otherwise would have been a great price.
“The price is hand luggage only and flying direct with BA via etravel website“


worth checking on the hand luggage if you’re interested as BA always was(is?) 23kg for hand luggage as well as checked luggage

Wouldn't be this price if it was completely in the school holidays, even with school tax it's still a great price. Lovely weather at this time of year and yes the parks will be busy, but they pretty much are all year now.
I thought 2A & 2C were the seat numbers, indicating you were sitting in the first class cabin.

What a dissapointment
Not really school holidays, cold.

A bit like your spelling
Most school holidays are the week before Easter and the week after - not two weeks after. Great price but not really school holidays.

Yes really school holidays. Not every school matches their holidays with your local area.

You don't actually get charged until you have 1 whole week and some schools grant the holiday if requested with educational justification (i.e. new experience they wouldnt have in this country). I think a lot of people think of Orlando as theme park central (which it is) but there are lots of educational adventures to be had such as NASA and Dinosaur world.
Its cheaper to pay the school fine than book on school holidays

Can you pay the fine so we can enjoy this holiday?

Wrong, the fine (or more correctly Tax) is per unauthorised absence, per child, per parent. Doesn't matter if the absence is one day or one month. Of course schools have a little discretion but not much, you certainly won't avoid it by saying a holiday is educational. The real purpose of the charge is to raise revenue that is why they don't care as long as you pay the money on time.

I work in a primary school. They can't fine you until a child has 10 unauthorised absent registration periods (2 periods counts as 1 day). Sick days and medical appointments are not included within this and unauthorised is where the head has either rejected a request or a parent/ guardian has failed to explain an absence within a reasonable timeframe. Also, you are correct, it is per child and per session missed.

Like you said, the school use their discretion as to how quickly they bring in the fines and I am sure schools with lower attendance figures will look to do it sooner. Also, from experience, if a child has a good attendance record and they miss a day or two when younger, schools are generally accepting on a one off however if their attendance is not great then it is likely they will reject and list as unauthorised.

I personally have seen a letter where a parent wrote they were taking their child away and parts of the holiday would be educational, plus in addition they offered to cover any missed work / homework there so it was approved for a few days.

As others have said, accepting a fine still works out cheaper than going during term time for some people.
Would love to pay.the fine to take kids out of school just another slight problem the wife is a teacher 😪😪😪😪
