We’ve been going to Disney World with my parents for a few years now and this past May when I attended the Disney Social Media Moms Celebration in Walt Disney World, we were able to bring John’s parents along. It’s awesome that Jackson has gotten to experience Disney World with both sets of grandparents. I love that he will have memories of soaring on Dumbo with his Mom-Mom and riding Buzz Lightyear with his Pop.
Here are a few things I’ve learned about visiting Disney World with Grandparents.
While I truly believe that going to Disney World is all about your kid. When grandparents are traveling with you and your kid would rather spend time with them, take advantage. Give grand mom and grandpa a few hours to spoil their grandchildren in Disney and go have some adult fun with your spouse. Ride the rides your kids are too short for, have a drink in Epcot or just relax by the pool. Let grandma handle it for a bit.
I never really stress when traveling with my parents, we’ve been doing it for years and we have it down pretty well. I know that they never expect us to do everything together and they let me run the trip, which I like. But I seriously stressed about traveling with my in-laws and while there were some moments that I would share with you over a glass of wine, for the most part it wasn’t anything that a glass of wine couldn’t fix. Let the little stuff go, walk away if you need to, order a drink and just have fun. After all that is the point of a Disney vacation.
Have you done Disney World with your kids grandparents, if so what tips do you have?
