My son is 8 years old and has never been to Disney World, so I want to take him. Dh does not want to go, which pisses me off to no end and is the reason we've not gone thus far, but I just don't care anymore. If he wants to miss it, he'll miss it--J & I are going.
So, I want to take J myself this January or February. All of this information is SO FREAKING OVERWHELMING!!!!
All the packages seem to be for 5 and 6 day trips, but I've only got 3 days, so I'm purchasing everything separate. I don't know the area. I don't know the different parks--Apparently there are a shit ton of them and I can't tell if they are all different parks or different names for the same thing. So I don't know what hotel to book that has shuttles to the parks I want to visit.
I just want to spend a day each at Magic Kingdom, Epcot, and maybe Universal Studios....or Hollywood Studios...or whatever an 8 year old would like.
Any advice? Would he have fun at Magic Kingdom at 8 or is he too old for it? I've only got 3 days, so I want to pick the parks he would have the most fun with. I think I'm just going to drive so I won't have to worry about transportation, but then there's the issue of parking--I don't want to spend half our day walking to the gate from some 3000 acre parking lot....
Plus, I don't consider myself a prude, but MY GOD this stuff is expensive! If I'm paying that much for a long weekend, I want it to be good, you know? We usually spend this much for a full week of vacation!!
