My kids school closes up for half term at noon on Friday. Which means its family vacation time!
Wally World, next three exits (if you recognise that movie quote, you're childhood was awesome)
So this Thursday i'm busting my kids out of school early
well that was the plan until I discovered they don't get marked as present for the day, so we're actually not sending them in at all!
Yep, bad parenting!
But this trip is worth it! We're not going to sit on a beach & toast our skin between visits to the all inclusive buffett.
Nope, this trip is cultural
I'm sure their teachers will understand that missing 1.5 days of school is no biggie when they read some of the things they will be experiencing
Elephant watching on the Savanaah
Eating crepes in the shadow of the Eiffel Tower
watching Daddy drink tequila in Mexico
bartering for goods in Moroocco
not to mention visiting a Galaxy far far away
Yep, just like Patrick Mahomes after the Superbowl, were off to DisneyWorld
It's a trip 28 years in the making. In July 1992 I took my first ever trip to the USA, when my parents took my sister & i to Disney World.
So I'm retracing those pioneering steps my folks took with us & taking my kids to the Happiest Place on Earth. Albeit with slightly less nostalgia as my boys have been to the House of Mouse a couple of times, though as they are now 9 & almost 6, this will be the first trip they both remember. Which provides me the opportunity to lie & pass it off as the first family trip on the classic "trip of a lifetime" trip to Walt Disney World.
Rewinding back to 92, this World and in fact Disney World where two very different places to what we know today.
Que, 'kids today will never know what it was like to' list,
kids will never know what it's like to....
Land in Newfoundland to refuel as the 757 couldn't make it to Florida on one tank
Sleep with a chair against the door cos you unwittingly booked a motel in a sketchy part of Orlando
Take holiday snaps on actual film then wait days for the pictures only to see your thumb covering the lens
Make do with 3 Disney Parks, cos Animal Kingdom was still a dream
Pump your Reebok Pumps for a more comfortable walking experience
Fill your fanny pack with your daily essentials
Get your hand stamped with ink when leaving the park so you could come back in later
Buy a one day ticket for $34 instead of $124
On the flip side, they will never know the joy of a World where
a Levi 'button your fly' shirt was the bomb
Google was a funny word
fanny packs were cool
and the apple store was a place that sold cheap fruit
That being said, im sure they are thankful that these pictures exist to show them just how cool their pre teen Dad was
regardless, Im going to DisneyWorld
