DS didn't want DLP

We were suppose to go to DLP leaving in the morning but DS said he would rather go to the indoor slide pool. I have to say that not being out in the snow and cold seems nice.

I agreed to do the slide pool and we will take off for DLP when it warms up just a bit but snow and cold, not for us this time.

There's no snow and it's not cold unless you are talking about where you are .

Hope your son has a lovely birthday wherever he spends it

We were offsite for this trip so no money loss, just a Mom who loves Disney watching her son grow up and want something other than Disney.

Hopefully he will be happier to go there this summer.

Do kids really grow out of it so young nowadays?

I can remember being excited about going when I was 15/16!

My DD is nearly 12, and she does want to go again, but not this year (we just had a trip to DLP last month). She wants to try a different holiday destination, somewhere with a bit of sun and a bit of touristy stuff.

I wonder if its maybe because we have gone to DLP so often in the last 6 years?

We are planning to take my youngest niece with us to DLP in a couple of years, and I know my DD will be happy doing that .

Let me just say that DS did ask for WDW for his birthday but with airfare so expensive we had to say no, not this year. Then we offered up DLP and although the idea was there and reservations made. He doesn't like it being super cold, and it was so cold yesterday.

We went to an indoor slide pool and he liked it. Now we are trying to plan a trip down on the 25th to meet friends from the States.

My 14 year old hasn't grown out of it, he misses DLP as much as I do and even my 19 year old after a couple of years absence has asked to tag along next trip.

I think it depends on the parents tbh. If there into it the kids prob will. I dont like disney i never have even as a child. I go coz my kids want to, dont get me wrong i enjoy been there but id never go without them. I dont actually know any adults who do, everyone would be like me they go for the kids and most would only go once or twice. Dd1 is 7.5 and none of her friends would still like disney and she is from a class of 35. Dd2 is 6 and still luvs princess ect but i stiil reckon this will be the last yr for her too.
