Our family has not been to WDW in 2 years. Last year we instead opted for a foreign trip to go to Spanish language school and travel together to see Guatemala. This year, back to Disney. We may not go again for another 2-3 years, so we wanted to make this a great trip.
We started with our traditional 8 days, with Free Dining! Then invited DD’s friend, who had gone with us 2 years ago (with her mom and dad, but mom Cannot do rides, amusement park or airplane). So Friend and Dad are flying down for 5 days!
So we needed more time. Oh! and then we found out that Primeval Whirl will be under refurbishment from Sept. 2 - Nov. My DH oddly collects all Pins Chester and Hester, so we wanted to ride before it closed…so
We got the 10 day ticket, and extended our stay to 12 nights…starting on Labor Day.
Now, we live in the south. Its hot down here. But for some reason, school starts during the hottest month of the year. My DS9’s first day of school is Aug. 11 and my DD11’s first day (at a NEW middle school) is Aug. 14.
The new middle school SAID they were very supportive of family vacations during school time (I am holding on to this thought the most!), but she is starting a challenging middle school program and I worry…
We have taken DS9 out of school for a week of WDW twice and not a problem…they are both A students and we get their work for them so they do it on the trip…
but now it is only 27 days away and I am afraid we are making a mistake??:ohmy:
Please tell me this is OKAY! Or what I should do to make it okay (but the trip will go ON! It is the guilt I am worried about at this point :laugh:
My DH says “tell them we are going on a mission trip - Mission Space!”
