having been in the travel industry for 10 plus years, I have had to move trips for myself/others.
There may be fees involved. But think about it.
When kids miss classroom time, and if you get the help when you return, your even more luckier.
I know what we go through, in our town, they will not pre give it out.
The teachers who posted on here, obviously go to Disney and have a family of their own, not all the case all the time.
I have had to deal with some immature/arrogant/and rude educators when we go on our trips both in Feb/April to see the Mouse.
We only now take the kids out 1/2 days before. Too much to deal with.
I have been told, I should make other plans.
That’s what we have been doing for years and both of my kids love it and we all love the family time we have, so that’s not going to change.
Glad to see there are some wonderful caring teachers out there, who realize that traveling is an adventure.
When we lived in NH (5 years ago) the kids were alot younger and although they went to different schools, they were given Journals to write about and be creative with.
My daughter who is the 5th grade, I suggested that to her homeroom teacher and was told it wasn’t necessary, we do one anyway, for us.
On our trip in Feb of this year we stopped in DC/and in Savannah, GA and St Augustine, FL we did the trolley tours and the kids (and us) loved it.
Education is all around us.
Continue to share it with your children.
And yes, the memories will last a lifetime.
In two years, after going to FL for years, my son who is in the HS will be going to college right outside Orlando.
FL is a beautiful state!
sorry for all the ranting (again).
2 more days until the Mouse!!!
