Back to Disney World!

Hubby bought the tickets today…. we’re going back to Disney World!

Adrian is 10 and he’s already been 7 times before.  We usually take one, if not two, trips each year.  Adrian loves going and for the most part we’d worked out all the kinks. Or so I thought …till our last trip.

We went to Disney about a year ago and it was by far one of the most difficult trips.  I was caught off guard by Adrian’s behavior.  Each day around midday, he’d melt down.  By the end of the week we got into the habit of returning to the cabin and hanging out till evening when we were able to go out without much trouble.  Being unable to tell us specifically what the problem was, all we could do was make guesses about why he was melting down.  Was it the heat, the food (or lack of acceptable fare), was it simply that he wanted to go somewhere specific and couldn’t tell us? 

I guess we’ll never know.  But I am revisiting those theories as we plan for this trip.
