DH and I are going to WDW on November 7. This was to be an anniversary trip - first trip anywhere without the kids! It was just a 2-day trip, coming back on Monday morning, but we were really looking forward to an adult trip alone, and had planned accordingly.:wub:
However, my folks cannot come babysit because my dad developed pneumonia and can’t travel. :crying::crying: We have no family in the area, so we don’t have a backup plan.
Our choices were, postpone the trip, throw away the plane tickets, and try to figure out when to reschedule, or change plans and bring the kids, taking the older one out of school for a day. Not really a choice - Disney/no Disney. We chose Disney, of course! The boys are 6 and 3, so this will no longer be an adult trip. We are arriving at MCO at about 12:30, and should be at the hotel around 2.
We had planned on having dinner at Kouzzina Saturday night, followed by La Nouba. Sunday was to be spent at Epcot for the last day of the Food and Wine Festival, nibbling our way around, then heading over to MK for EMH.
That’s not really a good plan for the boys. I managed to get Sunday ADRs at T-Rex at 12:30, but that means leaving any park we go to that day. The rest of us have non-expiring park-hopper tickets, but this is the 3-year old’s first trip needing a ticket, and we’re not sure we want to go ahead and make the investment in a 10-day non-expiring parkhopper for him, just for this trip, or save that expense for the next trip.
I’m tempted to call this a shopping trip, go mini-golfing on Saturday and concentrate on shopping and Downtown Disney on Sunday afternoon, avoiding the parks altogether. DH thinks that won’t go over too well, but doesn’t have any other suggestions.
Any recommendations for this little day-and-a-half, last-minute trip with 2 boys who don’t know they’re going right now? All suggestions appreciated!
