Last year was the first time we took the kids to Walt Disney World. I wanted to take them for years but allowed my anxiety over MJ’s potential behavior to take over. Before last year’s trip I researched for a longgggggg time. I must’ve called the Disney customer service number about 7 times. I had to find the right time to go. I knew the summer would be horrible. Standing in line for up to an hour in 100 degree heat isn’t fun for anyone! Thanksgiving and Christmas were out because of the massive amount of people that would be there. I would’ve been asking for a meltdown. I also didn’t want to go when it would be cold. MJ hates the cold (which for him is anything below 55 degrees)! Based on all of that info I really only had the months of September, October, and the first week of November to choose from. I also had them explain their disability access card. We used it twice last year and once this year. It did allow us to bypass a 70 min wait on a ride. Due to the new Fastpass that Disney offers, I was able to reserve 3 rides before we even got there. I reserved 2 train rides and a boat ride I knew he would enjoy. I went well equipped with ear plugs,headphones, Nabi tablet, snacks, and made sure my phone was charged. I also requested a room that was not facing a pool. The room was quiet and we didn’t have to listen to MJ ask to go to the pool every 2 minutes (literally). The best part of all of this is seeing how happy the kids were. Nothing beats that. MJ said “I wanna stay here forever.” We had a great time last year and this trip was no different. We bond as a family every time we take these trips. We can’t wait until our next one!
