I love family vacations. Even more than the vacation (well, not really more), I love reading the guidebook and figuring out what I want to do on which day at which hour, and where we're going to eat, and what we're going to see (spontaneity is not a friend of mine).
I'm reading the guidebook for this year. We're going to that mecca of canned entertainment known as DisneyWorld. We've been before, just never with kids, and before I start to sound too snarky and ungrateful, I love Disney. Okay, I enjoy Disney, appreciate a good ride, and LOVE to see my kids having a good time. Here's the problem: we're still 3 months away, and I'm already overwhelmed. What is all this stuff? Is it really any fun? How do I maximize the fun potential without driving all the fun away rushing from one really fun thing to the next really fun thing?
I need help. Will you help me? Please? Send me any advice for making the mouse encounter the memorable joyfest I know it can be for a 4 and 2 year old while still keeping the parents sane (and maybe even letting them feel like they had a vacation).
We've been showing this picture to Blue - he totally thinks we know Mickey personally:
