Things to Look Forward To

Sooner or later, you know we're going to take the girls to a theme park.

I hope it goes better than this.

Maybe you could wait until they're old enough to go on the rides by themselves :-)

Or at least understand "If Dad goes on that kind of ride he'll get sick and grumpy." That worked with Derrick at various theme parks over the last few years.

Given that for a fairly reasonable (discounted) fee, I can get tickets to DizzyLand, this could well be the 4th year in a row that we spend time in Disney themed and owned parks.

I don't think you'll have the same troubles this guy did. I seem to recall that you're the guy in the party who keeps saying, "Oh we can't miss that one!" Of course, in our group, that was just willingly playing straight to the stage-reluctance of others, but still.

One of the Disney guidebooks we have has a tour route called "Dumbo or Die."

Designed for parents of young children to get on the most little kids rides as possible in as short amount of time possible.

It even includes tips for kid passing, so that your little one can get 2 rides in the time of standing in one line. Parents stand in line a set number of other folks apart, then after the ride parent 1 finds parent 2 in line and passes the kid over, just in time to for parent 2 to get on the ride again with the kid.

Besides the fact that, at this point, you can ask me or huskiebear for advice on pretty much everything WDW (not to mention drzarron, who is equally or more knowledgeable), that guy wasn't in the market for fun, and he admitted it. He was looking to make his kids happy. I seem to recall being at WDW with you, and not only did we all have a very silly day, but I got a song out of it. ;) It's all in the pacing, and the choices.

For the cost of one trip to DisneyWorld, you can take the kids to Six Flags twice a year for several years in a row. Much closer, too.

As kids and siblings and I would have definitely have fallen into the "antichrist" category, but luckily my parents enjoyed the rides as much as we did. Amusement parks were an annual affair with us.
I'm sure when you and your generations of antichrists go, you'll have a blast.

when the girls are ready try Kiddie Land in Maywood. It's a great starter park. Mere loves it.

:-) I don't believe him. Notice he's -complaining- about not being fed first? I guarantee it, you have ten times the fun with kids.
