After doing more thinking about it, while we aren’t closed entirely to the idea, we do have some additional issues which make moving it less likely an option.
For one, we have a DS16, DD14, and DS8 right now. By December 2019, they will be DS17, DD16, and DS9. Since my DS17 will likely be taking some of his classes at the community college and working, that means there would be no car at times if an emergency arose. I will have a DS20 who technically is still living at home, but he is really only there to sleep most of the time, due to taking college classes full time, plus work, plus spending any free time he has with his girlfriend. So we can’t count on him.
We thought about my oldest son and his wife…but she’ll still be taking classes, and my son works full time plus is working on his master’s. So they probably couldn’t help.
Things improve a year later, though, in 2020 in terms of availability, etc.
We are still nervous about the thought of SWGE opening just before we’d arrive in 2019. Might not…but who knows.
Negatives of waiting until 2020 is, well, waiting, for one. Second, my parents were up here a month ago and they realized how hard it is for them to make the trip any longer (they are, in a word, old…and their health is making traveling more problematic), so that means to see them involves us going down there. We generally do so every 2 years, but we also have been seeing them up here in between. Waiting until 2020 for this trip is more than 2 years. (Not that my parents won’t have other visitors…I’m the youngest of 7 kids, after all!)
Third, there is the waiting.
Fourth, pricing could change, making an already expensive trip even more expensive.
Fifth, there is the waiting.
Sixth, construction for Tron should be nearing completion which means Tomorrowland COULD be undergoing significant closures (no way to predict that with any certainty this far out). Tomorrowland is, of course, our favorite area of Magic Kingdom. Not a HUGE deal, since we’ll have plenty else to do (after all, this was already something we were planning on anyhow.)
Seventh, there is the waiting.
