We finally purchased our plane tickets for our Jan. trip. Being from MN, we don't get any of the really good priced flights. In order to get a resonable price for tickets for our family of 5 we aren't going to fly out of MSP until 9pm and arrive at LAX at 11pm California time. Our flight home is at a reasonable time in the afternoon. We will being staying that first night at a hotel very close to the airport that can pick us up with their shuttle. Now I know this is by no means ideal. In fact we had a bad experience with flying home from WDW last Jan. late at night. (Two kids sound asleep and unwakeable plus carryons and one carseat to get off the plane) That time however was not by choice as our flight was very delayed and we had 3 exhausted kids after a park day. This time I figure it will work better since I will be prepared for it. The options for more reasonably timed flight would have cost over $400 more. I hope we made the right choice. We are bringing a stroller for DS3 for at DL. We also have an older umbrula stroller in the garage that I have thought about bringing also in case of having the two younger kids both asleep when we arrive in CA. Then we could give it away or just chuck it the next day. Anyone have any advice on taking a late flight like this with young kids? Thanks.
