FWIw, we watched YoungerNephew when he was just 2 and his older brother(5), parents, and aunt and uncle were off to WDW. He turned out just fine...

I'm here too! Can't wait to hear about the trip! I keep thinking about how I'd love to take my oldest on a solo trip, but I can't figure it out. Today's her birthday (she's 7) and we're taking her to the American Girl Place in Chicago as soon as school is out. And our DD4 isn't going along! But we figure that she'll get her turn when she turns 7, right?

So... how much money did you spend in Chicago? I've never been to the American Girl Place, but I've heard it's super dangerous!!

A solo trip would be hard, since your youngest is old enough to know she's missing out!

I forgot you guys were doing OKW this time. You are going to LOVE IT!! This is our favorite. POR was nice and we liked it too but we live in La so it's not like we don't see the foliage on a regular basis.
I love how quiet and spread out and still laid back OKW is. Plus, I just like that "palm tree, beachy-type" theming.

We actually chose OKW because we stayed there in 05 and Tyson just loved it! The 1BR villa is to die for! We are doing a studio this time, but we are excited to be back at OKW for sure!

Does anyone else do this?

Sometimes when I'm talking to people in real life, I want to call my husband "DH". Does anyone else feel the urge to jump into Dis-lingo and have to remind themselves that they aren't on the Disboards and they need to speak as such?

Just thought that was funny and wondered if anyone else did that!!

Looking forward to tagging along for your adventure! I think it is great that you are just taking your DS. I have 3 kids and am a HUGE believer in doing special things with them one on one (or just one with both Mom and Dad). We do a ton of things the 5 of us but when we can do something with just one of them at a time, it can be so special. In my house I made a rule that when you turn 12 you get a Mom and Me trip to Disney (I am crafty, it gives me 3 future trips to plan! LOL!).

Your son will remember this always and your dd won't remember it at all, it is the perfect time to do such a thing!

Your words mean a lot to me! I am also a believer in spending solo time with the parents... as well as parents spending solo time with each other! I hope our children will learn from us! Thanks again!!
