Last week, one of our neighbors took their kids out of school and went to WDW.
This morning, another neighbor says “We’re thinking about taking the family to WDW over Thanksgiving.”
I just looked at her in horror.
“You don’t think we should?” She went on to reiterate how much fun the other neighbors had- great weather, no lines, so much fun.
I suggested that the crowds over Thanksgiving would be a far, far different situation, and unless they were willing to really, really plan, it would probably not be a fun time. That they’d need to understand that there would be wall-to-wall people, and long lines, and that they’d need to be ready to negotiate that.
I think I talked her out of it.
So I feel bad about the prospect of someone not going to Disney- but I was just afraid they’d end up with a less than positive experience. They’ve got 4 kids- ages 6 to about 14?- and haven’t been to WDW in years; I know the younger two children haven’t been at all.
Should I have been more encouraging? Or was I just being realistic?
