Oh yay!! Y'all deserve this so much for surviving the last trip. Can't wait to read all about it!
Oh dang! I hate we'll miss you. Maybe we'll see you at the airport For real though, depending on when your flight gets into Memphis, I suppose it's possible we could run into each other!We leave the day you arrive! I hope you and R have a fantastic time!! A theme park view room at the Contemporary is on my bucket list My hubby and I did a kid free trip when my little one was 9 months old. We missed her, but it was so nice to have that time together.
Good to know! I'm very excited. I feel super lucky to have gotten the reservation!When we did the CG brunch we were at our table for over two hours and were some of the last to leave, and there was still plenty of fresh food on the buffet. I think you'll love the brunch! Congrats on your redemption trip!
We might! Our flight gets in around 5 pm on the 19th. I did feel bad leaving her, but there is no way she will remember that we did. However, we've since told her we went when she was a baby and now she likes to guilt trip me about it Kids are soooooo fun when they grow upOh dang! I hate we'll miss you. Maybe we'll see you at the airport For real though, depending on when your flight gets into Memphis, I suppose it's possible we could run into each other!
That's about how old LP will be, so that's good to know you did it too! I know a lot of people are very against leaving them that young, but we're so close with our families and trust them with her. I mean they keep her pretty frequently already since I'm working. It's nice to have days where LP doesn't have to go to daycare.
I don't mean to be "that guy" but I haven't been able to truly sleep in since I had my baby 4.5 years ago. Especially not when she was a baby. Your body might think she's in the room with you even though you are not.Our flight is supposed to land at 6:45pm, which means we won't really have time to do anything that evening. We did book a late evening dinner at Wine Bar George though. I figured that would be the best option if we were going to do anything! Hopefully if our flight is delayed, we can cancel without consequence.
Wine Bar George - 10pm. I have a feeling we're going to be exhausted, but we're planning to sleep in (I FORGOT WHAT THAT FEELS LIKE!) the next day.
Sunday Oct 20th - Sleeping in. Omg I cannot wait! Brunch at California Grill at 12:35pm. I'm not sure how late this brunch runs, but I'm slightly worried that if we're at the tail end, the buffet part won't be as good. I guess we'll see. It better be good for the price though! Good grief this brunch is expensive. This is my splurge for our anniversary.
We're planning to do MNSSHP on this evening.
Monday Oct 21st - 5:30pm Jaleo. So pumped for this one! I've heard great things, and the menu looks amazing to us. I'm sure we'll hit up some stores in Disney Springs too.
Tuesday Oct 22nd - 5:45pm Storybook Dining at Artist Point I think we might cancel this one. I know R will be so awkward with the characters, and I think this kind of thing will be more fun to do with LP when she gets older. If we cancel, we'll just do F&W Festival booths for dinner.
Wednesday Oct 23rd - 6:05pm Citricos I can't decide if I'm excited about this one. We both chose it based on the menu, but I've heard mixed reviews. I like the idea of doing signature meals though since we'll be kidless. We will probably skip signatures when we bring her.
And unfortunately that's it! It's so hard for us to pick meal places because we want to try everything!! And we also want to try everything at the festival. It's too bad we don't have unlimited money and stretched out stomachs
It'll be another month-ish before we get to make FPs, but I'll post those here when we get them. I need to figure out which parks we should do on which day. I never have a strategy for this...I just kind of wing it.
My first kid free trip was when my daughter was about 7 months old for a work trip. I had to pump a lot and store it all in the mini fridge in the hotel. It was..... interesting.... getting the milk back through TSA without a baby with me, but like.... if the baby was with me I wouldn't need to carry a cooler full of milk! LOL!Yay for kid free trips! We took our first kid free trip when our oldest was 10.5 months-I was still nursing once a day but weaned her completely before the trip; It was a company paid for trip to New Orleans with hotel on Bourbon street. So yes, basically weaned her so we could have a good time LOL! We all survived. She is 21 now and very independent. Actually hubs and I have done several kid free trips...we have 3 kids so it is a must!
The Contemporary looks like such a fun resort to stay at.
We've technically already done a trip away, back in May when she was 4 months. We had a wedding to go to, and knew she'd do better with my mom than us trying to shlep her across the state. It was tough being away, but we survived! I think it'll actually be harder on us now that she's a little older and we are definitely feeling more and more attached as she gets her own little personality (that sounds weird...we have always loved her, but it gets deeper every day )I don't mean to be "that guy" but I haven't been able to truly sleep in since I had my baby 4.5 years ago. Especially not when she was a baby. Your body might think she's in the room with you even though you are not.
Also, the first trip away is hard. Make sure both grandmas know how to video chat before you go!!
