If it hasn't already been mentioned yet, we have a fun group of August planners over on the Theme Parks Attractions board as well, if you want to join in:

We booked a bb offer last October for fd. We have 10 days booked this August. Unfortunately, we decided that it would just be toooo expensive. It is looking like our flights will cost the same amount pretty much as the whole 10 days, two rooms at pop and tickets.

We have changed our plans to drive to Ontario instead. I am looking forward to it but am very, very bummed about not going to Disney. We are taking the kids to Canada's Wonderland for a couple of days (they have never been) and renting a cottage for a week.

I haven't had the guts to cancel my trip yet. I better get going or I will lose deposit.

Awww... That's a drag! But you still have almost four months before you have to cancel it right? We booked the same BB beginning Aug. 18., so early July is when we have to cancel.

Maybe if you hold out a little longer airfare may drop??

Have you guys told your kids yet? We haven't but I think we will around Easter. I don't really know what is the best timeframe to tell but I DO want them to have some time to enjoy the planning. Our youngest is 8 so I think she could handle the wait even if we told her now.

Right from the time he was small, we always told our DS where were going and when. We like having him involved in the planning process.......our getaways (even the ones close to home) are family experiences so we all like to have each other's input. Plus, it always gave him time to budget and save for his souvenirs or shopping.....things like setting aside birthday money, allowance, etc. Never hurts to give kids the opportunity to budget and plan.

Have you looked into driving? That's what we are doing from NB. It is way cheaper and it's probably not that much further for you to drive there as to drive to Toronto.

We once surprised our kids with a trip to Disneyland. My husband and I had so much fun planning the surprise! We woke them bright and early on a school day and told them they had to get up because we were going to Disneyland. They didn't believe us at first To this day they still talk about it as being their favourite holiday! We also surprised them with a limo that met us at the airport and on the day they thought they were flying home we took the train to San Diego for 3 days. It was pure magic. I don't think we could pull it off a second time, they are too smart for that now, but it sure was fun!

It will be great no matter how/when you tell them. Have fun!
