For our next trip, our immediate family (me, DW, DD12, DD9, DD6, DS2) will be joined by my mom and step-dad.
My immediate family is staying in a cabin at Ft. Wilderness while my parents will be bringing their pop-up camper and staying at one of the campsites there.
I’m excited about this trip, and as the planner, I am the initiating force for pulling us all together.
My parents love spending time with our kids… but heads up, my 4 kids are wild and thus can be exhausting.
For those of you who have taken multi-generational trips - what advice would you give?
Right now, we are scheduling a meeting before I book FP+'s to talk through boundaries and expectations that each party brings to the trip. I am not under the delusion that this will be a conflict-free trip. I simply want guidelines in place that we all have agreed on for when conflict does arise.
I am also preparing my parents with lists of Touring Plans top attractions as rated by seniors.
What thoughts or advice do you have… besides “don’t do it!”
Thanks in advance, Liners!
