Disneyland Questions

We are going to Disneyland, in the middle of a flu epidemic. Technically it hasn’t hit California yet, and my children have had their flu shots…but I haven’t. So guess who is going to spray the hotel room with Lysol and bathe in hand sanitizer?

We had Disneyland season passes this last year because Derrick is a Disneyland freak, and I’ll admit it was fun to just pick up and go. Our passes will be expiring soon, making this our last trip.

Β In the past we have taken the baby and it’s worked out fine. He’s really a pleasant happy fellow. We’ve also had a great time just taking the older two. It’s much less work, but it’s also missing a little bit of cuteness. I would like to take baby just to get a great family photo, but then I remember that right now Shel has the world’s most awful looking rash. It’s not contagious, but I’m sure we’ll give the other Disneyland parents a thrill when we show up with a spotted, red child. Maybe I should make him wear a shirt that says, “I’m not contagious!”, because that wouldn’t make him need therapy later.

Every night I go to sleep deciding to take the baby. He’s almost two, and he knows what’s going on in the world. He is also obsessed with cars, and I think he would love Cars Land. He’s such a happy baby, he wouldn’t be much trouble. He loves adventures.

Then 4 a.m. rolls around and he wakes up and I think, “NO. WAY.”

Nothing is worse than a tired, sleep deprived family at Disneyland. Unless it’s a tired, sleep deprived family with the flu at Disneyland.

So what do you think? Should I take the little guy with me or send him off to Grandma’s?

  1. He's almost two. Take him and take a back pack. It's sure to be tons of work but if you are going for them, conserve your energy, focus and enjoy. Stop the world I want to get off.
