When we asked our kids to choose a favorite part of our recent trip to Florida, they each had a different answer. But Nicholas did not hesitate to shout immediately that his favorite part was our day in LEGOLAND®! They were kind enough to work with our family so that I could bring this post to you, and I’m so happy that I can share all about our experience and especially the unique ways they cater to families with special needs.
Navigating a vacation when your child has special needs can be very challenging. They have to get used to a brand new city, tight quarters in a hotel room, noises and smells that are different than home, and if you are going somewhere like a theme park there is also quite a bit of sensory input. Bright lights, loud noises, moving rides, sweating, and people standing very close to you, plus long waits in line.
Today, I want to talk to you about some ways to make your Disney vacation a little bit easier on both you and your child. Ready?
Since we are going to become a foster/adoptive family soon, we wanted to have a chance to spend some quality time this summer with our current children. We realize a lot of our attention is going to be taken up soon by this change and we decided this would be the year that Eddie took a full week off (for the first time in five years!) and we dedicated it to the five of us and nothing but quality family time.
I’m so happy that when I reached out to Encore RV Resorts about their Petite Retreats they agreed to work with us to plan the perfect getaway!
