DS will be 14 on this trip. It will just be the two of us unless older DS goes. He will be almost 21 and just doesn’t care that much for WDW. :crying: :crying: Where did I go wrong?!:crying: :laugh: :crying:
Anyway, younger DS loves WDW and is willing to go value if it will mean more money to spend and have a rental car (don’t know why that is so important to him, we have never had a rental before. He loves to swim and that is one reason we will be doing the water parks this trip. And, as long as he has a pool to swim in and flirt with the lifeguards, he will be happy. :laugh: :laugh: (He is so different from his older brother).
Maybe this will help explain part of my indecision. The last two trips were gifts to DSs from my aunt. We stayed at the AKL in a 2-bedroom suite. I would love to stay there again but cannot afford it now. It would take several years to be able to afford AKL again. I don’t mind staying Value, I am mainly concerned about transportation and big school groups being there. I am hoping that being in September, schools won’t be taking those big trips yet. I know when our school band goes to WDW, it is always in the Spring. Also, as I mentioned earlier, I am terrible at making decisions to spend big amounts of money. Our first AKL stay nearly put me in the crazy house!:laugh: DH used to get so frustrated with me. “It’s only money! Enjoy it, you can’t take it with you.” Now with him gone I am even worse. I just want this to be a great trip for us. And I don’t want to worry once we get there about having enough money to have fun, not go crazy, just have fun. DS is already trying to find ways to earn money and saving it.
