Dieting my way to Disney!!

I'm with you. My kids are 9 and 7 so Disney is still a much loved vacation for them but this past summer we took a three week driving tour of the west coast and they didn't love Yellowstone and were mad we didn't hit every children's museum that each city on our tour had to offer.
I told them to suck it up. Dad really wanted to go to Yellowstone and see the aircraft carrier museum in San Diego but wasn't terribly excited about Disneyland. I loathed Legoland and the San Diego Safari Park but had a great time at the Grand Canyon and the Disney area. We didn't complain and we expected the same from the kids. Sometimes they still were unhappy but sometimes they found they were having fun in spite of themselves.
Family fun sometimes involved compromises.
To the OP...if it were me, I would talk to the two youngest about the reasons they don't want to go and offer whatever solutions seem reasonable to make the trip more appealing to them. Some good suggestions have already been posted. I would also push the "onsite" angle. If they've never done it before...it might make it a whole different trip this time around. That's how our family felt our first time staying onsite.
If after this they still REALLY don't want to go, I would have a family conclave to decide what to do. I personally wouldn't want to go on a trip with only part of my family but I'd have a hard time giving up Disney for Vermont (as lovely as that state is).
Good luck! I hope you come to a resolution that works for the entire family.
If I only had $50 a day to spend on food at Disney... $40 a day for dining at Disney
