When it comes to the Mouse, there is no question about it! Take the trip!!
Take the trip make the memories.
One day is no big deal, especially since it's the first day returning from a long break. It's not like she's missing tests or something like that. You have over a month to plan and since you are doing quick service meal plans, you won't miss out on some popular restaurants you might want to try. Go for it. I guess just convince the wife and go for it.
I say go for it, but you probably will get that from most people on these boards. I think that it is important for kids to get out into the world and travel. You can learn so many life skills by traveling. She is in jr. high, a perfect time for her to work on some independence skills. Hey, even souvenier shopping is educational; she can work on math and budgeting skills -- if you must look for educational opportunities for the one day that she will miss. In the end we don't look back at our lives and say, "oh what did I miss at school in Feb of 1980 when I was on a trip to FL." I think back and remember being at the MK, Wet n wild, my brother's crazy girl friend who went on the trip with us, the Dayton 500 and the book I read during the race, etc.
Book the trip and enjoy the time with your daughter!
UPDATE: We didn't. We're in slow down mode now after my wife just finished grad school. The next time slot that I'm eyeing is the end of March during my daughter's spring break. I'm not sure on that one yet either but it's always fun to play "what if?".
I am taking my daughter (in 6th grade) out for a week at the end of January to go to WDW, I am not worried at all about her falling behind, she plans on bringing her work with her, but it also helps that she has all A's and is on honor roll. Kind of a reward for doing so well
