I want to take L somewhere later on in the year.
I can do Disney for about £1k for 4 nights, thats in November, just after his birthday
Legoland, I can do 2 nights, 3 days in the park for £300, however, that doesn't include transport. It is 5h30mins for us. I could get a cheap travellodge at Birm for £20, but it is going to be the 2nd half of the journey that is worse isn't it? From Birmingham to Legoland.
I don't want him to lose the Disney magic lol

Erm Disney! I don't really think the 2 can compare like that. Legoland is just a theme park. Disney is well erm DISNEY!
Having said that he may be too small for a lot of the stuff so you might be better saving the Disney magic until he's older, like 6/7. My cousin took her most adventurous littlwe boy just before Christmas and he hardly went on anything due to his size and he's not far off my L!
Can't you do Thomasland or Diggerland or something?

Really? That's what I'm worried about at Disney. Do you get the magic when you are 6 or 7?

Disney! How tall is he? Nicky was 107cms in December on his 4th birthday and he managed to get in the tower of terror which he loved. There were a few others he was fine for as well but as you'd be going in Christmas season it would be well worth it anyway as there's lots going on and the decorations are amazing. N still goes on about it now!

You never don't get the Disney magic chick its Disney!!
22/04/2013 at 21:36
I've not measured him. Hmm, do I save up & go to real Disney?
23/04/2013 at 10:08
Ah I think you should do proper Disney!
I will see what H says, he has no interest in going to America lol.
23/04/2013 at 10:13
Neither does my H which is why we will only ever do Disney Paris the once. I want it to be memorable and for L to go on everything he wants.

Kellfi - i was 16 when i first went to disney, it still had the magic!! It was the proper one though in Florida, the Paris one just doesn't compare.
We want to go disneyland paris, but was going to leave it a couple of years until E and S can get on more things, they're long days in the parks, and so they need to be able to manage with being out all day and walking lots. We plan on going when E is 5/6. We do already have a florida fund on the go and when the kids are 9/8 we will be going there.
We're doing legoland in the summer so not sure what it'll be like as we've never been.

Right, I am going to speak to H tonight and see what he says.
23/04/2013 at 11:33
Disneyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy you have to go!! never to young or old in my opinion - but then I am Disney Mad we are already planning our next two trips and the money is building nicely in the bank

You spend a fortune don't you CW? I have you ever been to Paris one? I have been to the Paris one years ago
23/04/2013 at 11:48
yes I have been a long time ago though and it does not compare. We don't always spend that much, we like to fly in luxuary too which adds on a bit. you can do it for about £5k
23/04/2013 at 11:51
Is that including park tickets CW?
23/04/2013 at 12:12
Yep, you can go out of seasonn, even more reason to go whilst he is little!
23/04/2013 at 12:42
I am going to price it up. By the time I save, he'll be at school lol
23/04/2013 at 14:42
The thing with Paris one is kids are free a lot fo the time aren't they.
23/04/2013 at 15:17
they are which is good but if you had the choice you would 100% go to Florida, even if you only go and do disney and shopping, its a fantastic experiance and you can plan it to be as mad or quiet as you like
23/04/2013 at 15:18
Hon you can try as much as you like we ain't never getting on that plane to Florida
