hey parents- do any of you go to Disneyland mom and dad only and do a kid free weekend? the hubs and I did it once and felt HORRIBLY guilty the whole time being there w out my lil ones. plus, we got a lot of criticism from our family about it. anyone else have this issue of guilt?

We go with out them all of the time. But no I don't feel guilty about because we take them ALOT. - Mrsblue  693.1 #283 5:02PM
We've dropped them off at school and gone to the park. The only time we ever stayed there without them was one year for the Food & Wine festival. - 415beachgirl  475.6 #447 5:03PM
For about 5 minutes then we had a blast...and who's giving you a hard time? Frankly it's none of their business where you spend your couple time together, it's healthly and fun. Enjoy yourselves, and there's plenty of other times you can take the kids. - Ladystrac  452.0 #487 5:04PM
You deserve time alone. Its not fair to be given a guilt trip. You married the guy first. Why not take some time to be just husband and wife for a little bit? - Starr  550.3 #370 5:04PM
Although we haven't done it, I say don't feel guilty! You need your time away, no matter where, to recharge! Do what you gotsta do. - MomWithAJuiceBoxBuzz  1190.7 #145 5:05PM
I went once without my son, to glowfest last summer with my brother sister and mom, felt really guilty on the way over there but it turned out to be really nice to have "grown up time". Maybe you wouldn't have had such a bad time if you didn't Get so much criticism, mommy and daddy deserve some alone time fun at Disneyland! - Princessana08  69.9 #4164 5:05PM
Yea I have a 5 yr old and 3 yr old twins.we always say we should go alone since the kids are so young , and go on some big kid rides, double stroller free....but we always chicken out. - DannieLand921  30.4 #5950 5:08PM
The criticism was coming from a sibling of his WHO HAS KIDS and his mother. It totally sucked! - DannieLand921  30.4 #5950 5:09PM
I never have, but I totally would. - macmom  169.6 #2415 5:11PM
I am thinking of doing a solo trip just to hang out with some mw'ers. - unclebeezy  255.1 #1303 5:14PM
I'm still too chicken to go solo. None of my friends are Disney people like me. Some day I'll get the nerve ;) - 415beachgirl  475.6 #447 5:22PM
You guys are so awesome! :) - DannieLand921  30.4 #5950 5:22PM
Can never find sitters. Plus it gives us joy to see them run around - Elaine  411.4 #537 7:03PM
@mrsstrawberryguy - you become BLUEberries! Get it? I get jokes. Lol. - TrueFromOzLovesDisney  531.4 #391 8:06PM
I'm an Aussie and dh and I left the kids with my mum for nearly two weeks and we came over for a Disney holiday. We didn't feel guilty and had the best time, we were having too much fun so didn't have much time to miss them. We have booked a trip with them this year though. :). I asked my oldest, who was 10, if it would be ok for mummy and daddy to go alone and he said "it's ok, you two need a break" - TrueFromOzLovesDisney  531.4 #391 8:09PM
Im thinking we will do a solo trip in January for our anniversary. def gonna give the adults only trip another shot....my in laws kept saying how mean we were for going to a place for kids without our kids and that we were being selfish. So we second guessed ourselves the entire weekend and ended up leaving DL early and drinking our guilt away. One of the worst DL trips ever. It's sad that support is so hard to come by now and days. - DannieLand921  30.4 #5950 9:02PM
It's in the works for me n the missus - connielu  686.5 #288 9:04PM
