I am a man of my word. Almost three years to the day that our grandson Jake was born, I promised to take him to Disney World. We (the three generations) made our first "adventure" to Florida.
It been over thirty years since I last took two toddlers to Disney. Yes, Jake has a little sister.
The memory does fade as to the challenges encountered when taking toddlers to Disney. Safe to say it was a very good thing that our daughter Jessica and son-in-law Craig came along for the ride.
From Grandpa's point of view, it was an absolutely fantastic and memorable trip. I'm not so sure Grandma Sharon would agree, since she and our daughter were tasked with the diaper and clothes changing, as well as chasing after the little ones.
I forgot that toddlers have a mind of their own and a huge amount of patience and flexibility is required by us adults. Dinner plans at 5 pm, changed to a late lunch at 3. Walking by a puddle from a recent rain shower requires a stop and a jump or two (or three) in said puddle. Walking in and out of a glass sliding door can easily be a fifteen-minute detour.
Once we understood the rules it got a little easier. My chief role was to push a stroller now and then, sit with them on just about every toddler friendly ride, take them to the hotel pool and most importantly, take pictures of them with Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Daisy, Goofy, Pluto, Chip and
Dale and any other character that crossed our path. It's these activities where memories were made and I will always cherish.
And as I have said for as long as our family has been in the travel business, trips like this are all about making memories. There are many more memories to make.
