At first we were not going to have a honeymoon at all (thinking of our time in Cuba as a honeymoon with lots of people LOL), but now that I've done some number crunching, and given up on professional pictures, I believe we can afford one. We thought about going to an all-inclusive in Jamaica or Mexico, but really don't feel like it as we will have just spent a week in Cuba. Plus summer is not the best time to travel south (we can't honeymoon right after our wedding as I'm a teacher. We will go in July or August). We thought about it and what we REALLY want to do is go abck to Disney just the two of us, get to experience it all as a couple.
The problem is, how do we tell his daughter, who loves Disney almost as much as us, that we are going there without her She has gone to Disney one extra time before with her grandparents, and has visited Universal with her mom last summer too, so it's not as if she has never been there. Still, we know she will be pretty disappointed about not coming. But I really to have this ONE trip just the two of us, as right after we'll be trying to start our own family.
Any advice on how to approach the subject with her? And how to do any damage control that her mom might cause (she has a tendency to twist every action of my FI and make her daughter think her dad doesn't love her enough...)?
other than that, I'm soooooo excited about going back there! I already know of one romantic thing I want to do: after eating dinner at Ohana (FH's request), I want to watch Wishes from the beach of the Polynesian.

You say your fiance's daughter is 10, do you think she would understand that this is your honeymoon, and while you know she loves Disney, this is a time where the two of you want some time to yourselves? I know it can be tricky with kids involved, but hopefully she's at an age where while she will be disappointed, she'll understand. Fingers crossed for you on that one.
Have a great time on your honeymoon, I want to go back so bad!

So I think this may need a compromise with her... Maybe "Well, we can't take you to Disney now, but we'll go back at this time instead" or agree to bring her back something awesome. I know, it sounds like bribing... And I guess it kinda is.. But kids respond to bribes when all else fails lol

Well, we've already told her that we plan on going back to Disney when our future kids are old enough to remember it, and that she will be coming with us. Only thing is, she'll be close to 18-20 y.o. by then. BUT her grandparents might go back to Orlando (not Disney, but they might visit for one day. They want to do other parks like Seaworld) in 2012 and they want to bring her, so we can for sure use that as a bribe. Haha
And yeah, she's probably old enough to understand. It's really her mother I'm afraid about. We only get her on weekends during school time (every weekends), but one day this winter his daughter called saying her step dad had a hockey game near our place, could she come hang out at our place during that time. My FI said well I'm going to the gym after work and won't be home before 8pm, but Mel will be there so just call her when you are on your way. Well his ex (her mom) told his daughter "he must not love you very much if he can't give up gym one time for you. What's the use going if he's not there and it's only his girlfriend"...
Anyway, this last part might better fit in the venting forum. Haha

We are thinking of staying a bit longer than a week to really have time to see everything (well, everything we want to see, we know we can't see everything). We'd spend roughly two days each in Epcot and magic Kingdom, one day each in Animal Kingdom and Hollywood Studios (and not on a Fantasmic day, we don't want to see it again). Then one half day at each water park, a half day or an evening at Downtown Disney, and some quiet time relaxing at our resort. :-)

I think the best park hands down is Magic Kingdom. So many rides he should be able to go on, and it's such a magical park.
All the other parks are great too, it just depends on his personality. But for just one day, then for sure Magic Kingdom.
