Da Wife, Da Baby and I will be taking a much needed, albeit short, vacation to da Disneyland for adults on da 9th Island next week and I wanted to know - has anyone traveled with a two-year old before?
Da Wife and I decided wen Da Baby was born dat we wouldn't travel until she was at least seven - or until she was tall enough to ride rides - but I was extremely lucky to have won a trip during da holidays last year. Yes, Ocean Lover, dat was me squealing like a girl on da radio. So we decided to go before it was too late.
Actually, it's a free trip dat's ending in highway robbery since we had to buy airfare for Da Baby through da same "charter company". Everyone knows da "package" includes airfare, hotel, meals and transfers but to say dat if you just want da airfare only is just $10 less makes me scream......
Wassup Wit DAT!
Understandbly, da "packages" are for adults but really, only $10 less cause someone wants to travel with you? And let me just mention dat dat is just for da AIRFARE ONLY! It doesn't include meals, hotel or da transfers. It's just happenstance dat da three things they rob you on is taken care of in our situation cause she'll share everything with us - cause she's a baby - and we actually rent a car from da airport anyways.
And da reason why we can't pay da extra $10 for da "package"? Cause Da Baby not 21. Oh yeah, we still gotta pay baggage fees in a "package deal"!
Geez, nothing is truly "free" anymore yeah?
Anyways, anybody got any tips, hints or suggestions for traveling with a two year old? Obviously it's da first time we've traveled with child and I still remembah da time Da Wife and I traveled wen we was younger and there was a screaming baby and we just gave each oddah a look and knew wat each oddah was tinking....... now we on da oddah side and we don't want to be "dat" ohana.
Things have changed since we were keiki and I tink dis is wea technology is not only a plus, but a must. We got a tablet filled with educational games, dvds (still gotta pick up ovah da ear headphones), a couple of her favorite stuffed animals, a ball (for her to chase and run around, obviously in an open area), snacks and of course her diapers.
Got anything to add? Oh yeah, has anyone been to Vegas with a two year old? We've got our days planned out and driving to a few places outside of Vegas for her to explore as well but would love to hear any suggestions of places to go and see dat are "age appropriate". Anybody got any foodie spots dat's a must?
