Oh wow! You guys will have a ball. Very wise to book a seat. My eldest was 23 months when we did a 12 hour overnight flight and we didnt get a seat. It was the longest 12 hours of my life! Weve done flights with both of ours at various ages and it really is fine. Its 9 hours that are not much fun, but then its done and hopefully youll never see those people again and youll have the best memories!
Our youngest has been at 11 months, 26 months and then just over 3 and it was brilliant watching her face each time (eldest could enjoy rides at 7,8 &9). Cant wait to take them again next year.
Cant wait to read about your trip!

This is exactly what I keep thinking... we just need to get through those 9 hours and then we have an amazing 2 weeks of Orlando fun ahead of us! I will go armed with so many snacks and distractions, I am hoping we will make it through without too much trauma!

It feels me with confidence that you have done it multiple times and live to tell the tale!

How did I miss this?! So excited to read about your plans . Story Lake looks amazing, we love staying in Kissimmee too. Defo a good plan for Charlie to have his own seat & taking Grandparents for back up is very clever .

Libbys currently 24 months...as you know she wasnt great when we flew to canada last May BUT in the last couple of months shes definitely got so much better at sitting still. Shell now play a Flashcard game on my phone while Im shopping if I need her too and she has favourite films that usually guarantee chill time!

Im sure Charlie will be brill on the plane . Itll be worth it anyway! xx

Haha, not crazy at all. I have started looking at prices to be there for her 2nd birthday... God help me and my bank balance!

Oh that fills me with much more confidence! I keep thinking of how he is now and having a panic as he is very active and its not easy to keep his attention for long... but hopefully another 8 months down the line this will be different (fingers crossed anyway!)

All I keep thinking is that we just need to get through those 9 hours and then we have two whole weeks of fun ahead of us... I will worry about the return flight when it comes to it!

Please do a trip report, they are always such a great read!

Exciting we are going to be out there at the same time, I will be keeping my eyes peeled for you!

Ooo this is exciting, I am so hoping you go for it! (You can then come back and tell me all your tips for surviving WDW with an energetic toddler! )

Aww weve travelled with our 2 at ages 14 months, 21 months and 2.5yrs. It honestly wasnt nearly as bad as I thought it was going to be. When we flew with our youngest at 21m insisted we book a seat for him - lifesaver! I took loads of snacks, lots of new little toys and books and let them go to town on the ife and iPads. It wasnt exactly relaxing but it was fine.

Now theyre aged 7 and 4 and my 7 year old will tell you that the best part of going to Florida is getting to spend 9 hours on his iPad 😂 When we went last year both me and dh actually managed to watch films and read books pretty much uninterrupted! God bless the iPads...

This certainly fills me with confidence, thank you so much! I think snacks and the iPad are going to be our saviour over that 9 hours!
