Going holoholo is something we all wish/dream about. If we had da means, I'm surah we'd explore to our hearts desire but alas, most of us do not have dat luxury. In fact, most of us have to endure 'economy class' in one or all of airfare, hotel accomodations and activities.
It's not so much wen traveling with a significant oddah or with 'da boys' but wen traveling with ohana, things just call for more attention to detail: wea you going, wea you staying, wat you going do, wea you going eat etc.
For da first time in five years, Da Wife and I gave in to taking Da Ohana on our first, Ohana vacation. It wasn't a decision we came to lightly as we both agreed early on dat we wouldn't take them till they were nearing double digits in age. Naturally, money is an issue, but with da barrel of oil at an all time low, airfares have followed suit making it easier to 'afford' probably one of da biggest cost of any vacation. With Da Keiki a few months older than 5 and Da Baby at 30 months, da first thought in our minds was wea to go. I'll give you one guess and it has choke lights......
If you guessed Japan............ silly you, wishful me.
Disneyland of course! 😀
As an adult, our eyes lit up too cause we haven't been there in almost a decade and to share a place like Disney with your keiki is any parent's dream.... or nightmare.
So let me ask you, have any of you been there recently? Obviously Da Keiki and Da Baby will be limited in their ridership but I know there are CHOKE changes since we've been there such as now you're allowed to bring in your own watah and no selfie sticks. Luckily we'll have two strollers and Grandma in tow (we were told to bring 'reinforcements' so we weren't going to DL without Grandma 😆 ) so we'll have 'storage' for kiddie snacks and maybe a musubi or two but you got any experiences to share like wea's da best bathroom? Should we walk da park counter clockwise? Skip Main Street to do on our way out instead? Are there show times to avoid? Must do's? Must don'ts? Are there any "secret's"? I read dat there certain foods dat you can't get elsewhere in da park like da giant turkey legs.
We'll be up there in mid-February for about a week so I'm just hoping dat there aren't too many rides down for maintenance. Multi-day passes are a given since we'll be there for nearly a week. Yeeeeaaaaa boi! *said in a happily sad voice once I'm realizing da crying and whining dat will consume us from not only our keiki's but oddahs*
As December rolls to a close, I am anticipating our (my) first vacation in ovah five years so yeah, I got ants in my pants.
Wait a minute, I just realized dat I'll be "babysitting" during a vacation at da happiest place on Earth..... and on my birthday.
Wassup Wit Dat!
