Being away from their mum for that long could be the biggest issue though I think.
I too think that it would be fantastic for you all to still go. I think 17 days is a long time and you are right, they will understandably miss their mum. However, the beauty of technology is that they will be able to ring/ facetime her every day if they wanted to. If they know that before they travel they will not have that worry and it will help all of you (including their mum and you).
Have an amazing time and don't be afraid to ask for help if you need it.

Yes Do go. It will be precious time with your children and time to show you are still very much a big part of their lives. Of course it will be hard for you emotionally but try to focus on fun with the kids. They will be a handful at those ages but schedule rest time by the pool and make sure they don't get overtired too much as that is usually when kids start to play up. Remember that would happen if there were 2 parents as well so don't feel guilty if they get grizzly, it's natural with children even when they are in Disney 😀. I agree it will give you and them something good to look forward to. So sorry about the break up for you all.

If you are used to sharing the childcare or your wife does more it probably feels incredibly daunting to think about taking three children solo but August is a long time away and by then you will be very accustomed to taking the kids out for the day and maybe even away for weekends solo even if they are living with your wife rather than a 50/50 arrangement. I think if it's still financially doable ( the first year of separation is very expensive with legal fees and child support as well as finding somewhere to live big enough for not just you but the children when they stay) then you'd probably regret cancelling by the time August comes around.
I'd stick the decision on the back burner for a while but ultimately many single parent families choose to holiday at Disney as it has everything for them.

With regard to time away from Mum, by then the kids will be used to staying overnight with you and you have time for even a couple of dry runs with weekends away ... plus they can always Skype with Mum whilst you are away.

Is your wife ok with you taking them or has it been decided already ? Could you all go but have separate bedrooms etc so you share the experience with the kids ? Just a thought x

Less than a year into a separation that might be really hard on everyone ... and very confusing for the kids.
I could have done a holiday with my ex and our son in later years, but the first year whilst we were establishing the new dynamics and things were still raw it would have been a disaster.
