Ok, y’all. Give me the good, the bad and the ugly regarding WDW solo with your kids. Who has taken kids solo? What did you love about it? What did you hate?
We just bought into DVC at Copper Creek. They gave us points for 2018 which we weren’t expecting so we’re trying to decide when to use them. The best option from a cost perspective would be in late July as we already have a family beach trip planned and booked. However, DH is unavailable to go and my parents would rather not endure July heat in Orlando. They have volunteered to watch my youngest (DD2, will then be DD3) so it would just be myself, DD8, DS7 and DD5. DD5 is 41 inches right now so I have already told the big kids that we will have to stick together and her being there will mean they have to ride together, maybe forgo some favorite rides, etc. They understand and are excited to go just the four of us.
I have thought that DD8 and DS7 could go on some of the bigger rides together without us but am wondering for real life experience with this. It makes me feel nervous sending them up a queue without me. Should I plan on buying one of those kid phones where they can only make calls to a few phone numbers in order to be able to communicate if we’re separated? Should we just say thanks-but-no-thanks for the extra points Disney??
