Yeah, Uhmm...I don't know what to do. Even better UPDATE! -dances-

If you've been around me lately, you'd know how excited I was for my upcoming WDW trip. And now this...

Well my grandmother has a bladder infection that may require surgery right before the trip. My mom insists that I go to WDW with my dad, and she'd fly in later. I don't want to do it, because it feels selfish to me, but my mom insists. So I decided I guess I'd just go with my dad, but I cannot stop crying about it.

Me and my dad don't connect, we fight a lot, and other times laugh at stupid jokes. He barely knows anything about WDW touring, and I haven't been since I was 9. Now I've read and read the TPAS forums and whatnot, but I still don't think I can travel all that way and have fun without my mom. She was the backbone for this trip. I don't think I can do it. I might just breakdown in the middle of mainstreet or something. I know my feelings probably sound weird to you, but...I don't know. It makes me feel selfish and empty and I don't think I can have fun without her. But if I don't go, we'd lose so much money...

I guess I just said all this to vent, I don't know.

- Jenny.

Hey! How are you?

Well, first of all I hope that your grandma gets better. Second, go with your dad. This could be a chance for a great bonding with eachother.

What hotel are you staying at?

I certainly hope your Grandma gets well soon and your mom is able to get down to the vacation with both you and your dad quickly. But I agree use this time to bond with your dad and show him what fun it is to be on a trip to WDW with his daughter.

THat stinks Jenny. I hope your gramma gets better and your mom can join you ASAP.
I would HATE to go on a trip without my mom (or an other member of my family for that matteR) It's just not Disney to me when we're not all there.

But on the other hand, it could possibly be a really good thing for you & your dads' relationship. You two could have the chance to just chill out together, and what better place than disney world!!

I hope everything works out Jenny! It stinks that you coudlnt have the family vacation you planned on, but having some time to be a daddys girl is fun every now and then. and you'll have some fun stories to tell your mom when she gets there.

Ohh Jenny I'm so sorry.
I hope your grandma get's better.

If I were you,I probably wouldn't go because my dad and I have problems with each other,but since your mom would be flying out to meet you..I would try to make the best of the trip that is only with my dad.

I hope all goes well.

I hope your grandma's surgery is smooth.
My dad couldn't come until the 4th day at WDW this year because he couldn't leave work. I understood but I wanted him here the whole time. Have fun at Disney and the time will fly. Before you know it, your mom will be there too.

Aww, I'm sorry Jenny.
I don't connect with my dad either, so I kinda kinda know what you mean about that. I'd hate to go to Disney without my mom, she's kind of the ice breaker and yeah :[

But, unless your dad flies up by himself and you stay with your mom...

Aww, I'm sorry, this is a hard situation

Awww. I am so sorry. I hope your grandmother gets better!!

I'm not sure what I would do.
I would go if I haven't been there since I was nine.
But I wouldn't go better I would feel bad & I wouldn't wanna go without my mom either.

Maybe you could push the vacation back a day or two.
My cousins were going to come to Disney when we went in July but then decided not to & they got their money back and everything (they decided not to go the day before they were going to leave).

Well anywho I hope everything works out.

Aww Jenny.
I'm so sorry.
But try to make the best out of situations and try to pretend as if though your mom was there.

I'm sorry Jenny. I hope your grandma gets better.

I don't think I could go without my mom. She is my best friend. And I fight constantly with my step-father too. We don't get along at any time.
But if she was flying in later, I could probably handle it.

It's a hard situation.

Yeah, and now I'm pretty sure she won't be flying in later. Which just...I can't do.

It will be weird without my mom there. I probably won't enjoy myself. I'll be thinking about my mom and gramma. I feel like I can't go, but there's nothing else I can do.

Thanks guys.

I'm sorry Jenny. Who knows, maybe you and your dad will have a chance to reconnect.

Good luck, and have a great time!!!

-dances- Super duper good news. My mom called Disney tonight, and after talking with them decided on the following.

If my gramma doesn't have surgery near our trip, then we'll go all together.
If she does, then we'll postpone it til the first two weeks of December and we'll all go btw.

So I either have 10 weeks, or 10 days left.

I am SOOO happy!
