When my husband was a kid, they typically took a short beach vacation every year, as well as another family trip. They have lots of great memories and stories to tell! Trips were really out of the question for us financially as our family grew, but we’re finally in a place that we want to make it a priority.
A few years ago, a friend of ours elected to postpone a kitchen remodel in favor of a Disney vacation , and when I started pricing things, I could see why! Yikes! There are entire blogs and websites out there dedicated to planning a Disney vacation and saving on a Disney vacation. For us we’d probably splurge on a Villa or Suite in a more premium resort since we wouldn’t likely be going on such a nice vacation for a while.
The Eco Chic has been writing some great blog posts lately about Disney, including cloth diapering at Disney and using strollers at Disney. I’m not really worried about traveling with cloth, but after our trip last year, I’m a little nervous about traveling with our youngest. A 6 month old isn’t too hard to travel with, since they tend to fall asleep, but he’s walking/running/into everything at almost 15 months, and chasing him around is exhausting, LOL. When we went shopping at Up On the Hill I spent most of the time we were there running around in circles after him and picking up things he tried to throw!
Right now we’re thinking about maybe researching some more and trying to plan a Disney trip for next year, when the little guy is 2, but our oldest won’t be “too old” to enjoy the magic. For now, I think we will maybe just do a weekend trip somewhere close to home just to get away, then maybe visit my in-laws again (hopefully we don’t miss our plane this time!)
Have you been to Disney? Thoughts on a not totally stressful trip for us? Ha.
