Rewinding to the 3yo & 1yo days, we found Majorca to be fantastic - specifically Cala d’Or and Puerto Pollenca. Spent many years between the 2 (with the odd trip to Lanzarote thrown in) for the summer holidays and had a great time. Flight time manageable, transfers manageable, heat manageable.
In later mini-me years, we switched to combined with -breaks to keep it interesting.
We also did a DisneyWorld holiday when they were 6yo and 3yo - which was both amazing (we knew people who worked there and received incredible perks) and disappointing (neither kiddo really remembers it now ) Advice, FWIW - for the ‘big’ trips, wait until they’re at an age where they can enjoy it, and therefore the memories, more.
Each to their own. We’ve also had some banging holidays in a in absolutely British weather
I agree with David on the save the big trips comment, our youngest is 5 next month, so thankfully when we go to the likes of Disneyland paris or any theme park, height restrictions ain’t a problem. Nothing worse than kids wanting on a ride and being turned away. Also if they old enough to remember they will talk about it for years to come. Spain is a good option if you want a sun holiday, we did costa del sol a good few times, when boys were younger.
Oh I fully agree with that. If we were to go with the Florida trip we’d probably skip DisneyWorld and do the smaller (and thankfully much cheaper) attractions like Bush Gardens and the surrounding water parks etc.
That’s a possible good shout. They wouldn’t be really bored/uncomfortable on a long flight then…
Yeah I’m thinking Spain and the likes of fuerteventura… I’m going to go to a travel agents at the weekend I think to see what they can recommend.
