This trip is going to be a little different than most of our trips. We have traveled just the three of us, we have traveled with our extended family, we have traveled with friends a number of times, but this trip we are taking one of my 11 year old daughter's best friends. I know, I know, there are whole threads on the disboard (http://www.wdwinfo.com/) about the pros/cons of this type of an adventure. Everyone has their thoughts on a vacation with someone else's child. These discussions are as bad as "taking the kids out of school for vacation" but not as heated as "whether your resort refillable mugs should be brought back trip after trip" that's a topic where the flames come out. You Disney neurotics know what I mean.
I have great expectations for this trip. Jenna's friend is a total sweetie and I have great confidence in both of them to make this a trip of a lifetime. (No pressure there) I was going through photos for this post and I got excited just about the thought of being able to scrapbook this trip when we are home and what a great memory it will be for Jenna and her friend who we will call "S." (hope that is okay with you, mom of "S"?). Here are some great memories of Disney past:
1973 Me, my brother, & cousins
I can't wait to have some great memories to post from this upcoming trip. I will update you as the trip planning progresses. If you have any thoughts on traveling with someone else's child or traveling with 6th grade girls I would love to here it. Coveting your advice and suggestions.
Have a Magical Day!!
