What's the longest your child has missed school in order to take a Disneyland vacation?

My kids miss all of the time for DL. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ I don't care. When they grow up I want them to remember the magical memories they had as kids as well as reading, writing and math. - Mrsblue  693.1 #296 11:50PM
Thank you! This makes me feel better, cause I've always told my husband that family time and memories are more important than anything! He agrees πŸ˜‰ - lynniesue42  232.4 #1619 11:54PM
Plus we always justify the cost of disney trips by saying these memories will be something she cherished for a lifetime as passes onto we family! - lynniesue42  232.4 #1619 11:55PM
^^^her family (not we family!) - lynniesue42  232.4 #1619 11:56PM
We have a deal with our kids, as long as they keep their grades up (A's - HpplyEvrAftr  223.0 #1741 11:43AM
Mads is in the first grade, last year I took her to DL for a week in October. I talked to the teacher about it beforehand and got her homework to do, but honestly it seemed that missing one week wasn't a good idea for her, probably won't do it again! - madsdad  1868.2 #97 11:48PM
Thanks for your honest review...I wish it was closer to the school year so I could talk to her teacher before putting all this money out to potentially have it do more harm then good! - lynniesue42  232.4 #1619 11:50PM
Yah I will probably do it for a day or so at a time, since I want to go again in October. I don't think there is anything wrong with it, just for us a week was too long for her! - madsdad  1868.2 #97 12:00AM
Don't feel bad! My son has missed two times of five days of school to do Disneyworld vacations. I was proud to say that was my reason for him missing school. Family quality time is always good! Ask the school to give you a homework packet to do. My son was in the 2nd grade and later 5th grade. He is now in college and never forgets our Disney trips! Family relationships should always be a priority and your child will gain more by spending quality time with you than anything school may teach. (I am a college graduate) So many kids now don't have strong relationships with their parents...don't miss this opportunity. Have a wonderful trip. - verofern  138.4 #2966 11:54PM
Thank you, well said!!! :) - lynniesue42  232.4 #1619 12:00AM
I took my daughter out for a week several times during her early years. Try to make it a fun yet educational experience. Work with her teacher to get some ideas. Also, take her to some of the MW meetups so she can socialize with other kids. Socialization is a really important part of the kindergarten years. - Gia  802.0 #237 11:51PM
Thank you!!! :) that is very true, a meet-up is a great idea! Plus doesn't kindergarten also foster imagination and creativity, what better place to do that!!! :) - lynniesue42  232.4 #1619 11:57PM
Exactly! - Gia  802.0 #237 12:45AM
In feb we took my daughter out for a week , and got her home work and she did 90% of it on the train ride from Klamath falls Oregon to Anaheim ca and she is doing just fine too go have fun and enjoy - cowboygoofy  219.1 #1786 11:55PM
Thanks for your input, much appreciated! :) glad to hear your daughter is doing well - lynniesue42  232.4 #1619 12:00AM
This is a hard one to answer. As a high school teacher I see students miss school for various reasons. While I do agree that there are many important memories to be made outside of school (extra-curriculars, once in a lifetime trips, family stuff, etc) it also depends on the student. I have had many students miss for a week and it has been very difficult for them to get caught up, even with having assignments ahead of time. I think it really depends on the type of student and if they can handle being gone and still learn the material that is expected. Missing one or two days is not usually detrimental (same as being sick). Extended absences can be a problem depending on the student. - LilSterner  5732.5 #23 11:19AM
As a teacher what are your thoughts on a child that not only makes up the missed homework, but also does an extra credit assignment? - Lelundrial  710.2 #281 11:35AM
That's awesome! I think it's more difficult the older they get. Sometimes students need the teacher's explanation to understand the material. I'm all for family experiences and making memories (probably more than some of my colleagues)- I just think there needs to be balance. Plus if yogurt assignments before, it really irks a teacher if they're not done at the agreed upon time. Teachers take time to get everything in order for extended absences and then to not have it done can be frustrating. - LilSterner  5732.5 #23 11:55AM
Ok I just wanted an expert opinion. The last two times I had to pull my boy out of school. Once for DL another for a funeral, he did extra credit work as well as made up all the missed work both times. If I saw he is going to do the work, he is going to do the work. Plane and train rides aren't that interesting. - Lelundrial  710.2 #281 11:57AM
I only ask because I'm feeling guilty...I booked our hotel stay for the HoJo months ago, before the school district approved my daughters early enrollment into kindergarten waiver...as of today they agreed to allow her early admission to Kindegarten and this means she will miss 5 days of class in October? Is this terrible? It surely won't be a habit...but I'd like some feedback before I buy tickets for the parks tomorrow. :/ mixed feelings on this one, as education and DL both hold a large place in my heart! :) - lynniesue42  232.4 #1619 11:42PM
My son has missed school due to family vacations before. I used to make sure he had his class work ahead of time. I don't see a problem as long as its not all the time. Enjoy your trip :) - Keala76  326.2 #791 11:45PM
Thank you! :) I just don't want it to hinder her learning...I definitely intend to ask her teacher for her class work ahead of time so she stays on track. Thanks for the tip! - lynniesue42  232.4 #1619 11:47PM
Don't feel bad at all! These will be cherished memories for your family. My oldest two kids are 26 and 21.. My next set are 8 and 10. Time flies!!! Enjoy the moments while they are young. Make those memories! Soon enough, they will be grown up. My older two still cherish their Disney family trips..school work can be made up on the weekends when you get back. - 2BeignetOrNot2Beignet  1471.6 #120 12:03AM
We homeschool do we just make up time somewhere else. My parents used to take us out for a couple weeks to make Christmas a full month to fly out to family. My brother and I did well. We just got our assignments to do during vacation. It may depend on the kids. We did well with independent study and my parents were truly helpful. - Autoalice  161.4 #2592 12:04AM
There were many trips they took us out for actually. - Autoalice  161.4 #2592 12:05AM
2 Weeks. I'm a bad, bad Dad... - proudcanuck  478.6 #462 12:09AM
at our school...10 unexcused days gets you kicked out. you have to reapply - misschurro...  7252.5 #14 12:53PM
We went during my kids Christmas break& spring break, air & hotel cost way more and super crowded, but they didn't skip any school days. - RapunzalK  196.7 #2079 12:56AM
2 weeks, however, I put her on independent study so the school got their $30 a day for her and she wasn't behind. It was a road trip to WDW. - 415beachgirl  475.6 #465 1:07AM
I think it depends on your child. And who knows them better than you. My daughter is a second grader and we took her out in Oct and Feb for a week each time. We put her in independent study. School got paid, she had no recorded absences and she was givin the same work the other students were doing. No ill effects here. My husband and I have to take her out during the school year. Our jobs are hard to work around. - PrincessAuroraMomma  600.4 #352 8:13AM
2 weeks for my lil sister - theHatBoxGhost  10.0 #11367 8:15AM
1 week for his first WDW trip. - Lelundrial  710.2 #281 8:20AM
One week each for our elem, middle and high schooler. The key is getting that weeks work done BEFORE we go. The teachers have always worked with us and its never been a problem, all 6 yrs we've gone. We go the first week of Dec. so they don't miss finals or anything.... - DisneyDawn  419.2 #549 8:30AM
I know, we've been fortunate. Knock on wood.... - DisneyDawn  419.2 #549 11:53AM
Well snow after seeing your comment below that says just lie, I see why they would make it hard for you. - Villescas8  607.0 #346 6:32PM
My girls missed a week. It was at the beginning of the year. They do well so, no concerns for me. I would rather go when the crowds are lighter. - DisneyVacationLover  506.1 #439 8:31AM
I took my son out for a week. I got a work study packet for my boy to do. He loved putting in for the PE section how he ran from space mtn to toy story mania! πŸ˜„ we did a little bit of work every morning before we went to the parks and he did some on our long drive too. So worth it! He wasn't behind at all since we went in the beginning of the year - minnieMisty  276.9 #1122 8:47AM
as long she had A's we would take week here and there. - GoofyJoe  1906.6 #94 8:50AM
My daughter has missed up to a week. We make sure to bring all of her work and set aside time to do it. She's a straight A student and my philosphy is as long as she keeps her grades up she's allowed a little play time.  - LovePiglet76  39.2 #5404 10:59AM
I took my son out for a week two years ago to go to DL soooo worth it!! He is in 5th grade now and at the top of his class so didn't hinder him one bit. Life is about the memories you make with your children this is what they will cherish for years to come not always what they learn in school - julia4disney  3.4 #30281 11:24AM
I plan to take Judah out for a year so we can justify the price of an ap. Jk. - LittleAprilShowers  587.4 #358 12:42PM
My parents would usually let me miss a day for my birthday to go every year. They would pick a day I didn't have a test. Once in a while we would take a day off during the week and go as a family. Never more than a day, though. - LaneSparrow316  847.0 #222 12:46PM
For us if they missed one or two days so we could go to DL we don't think it's that big of a deal. We just don't schedule the trips around times they do tests. Enjoy the time with your family. - Mickey_Badge  282.8 #1069 12:54PM
My kids are skipping school today because we went to Fantasmic last night and we were all too tired to get up. Oh but what some memories we made. - disneygal  433.2 #522 1:15PM
Thanks everyone for your supportive, non judgmental advise!!! Much appreciated! - lynniesue42  232.4 #1619 5:26PM
ya that was weird, we must be having an off day lol. - madsdad  1868.2 #97 6:13PM
We took our kids out for 5 days got homework and talked to teacher prior...no problem with it here!!! :) - kimluvsdisney  120.4 #3280 6:15PM
My son and his fiancΓ© were in court last week as the ex stated that his daughter missed a day of kindergarten to go to DL Judge asked the ex if he paid for the tickets. Upon his "no" case was dismissed. - SeΓ±orBuzz&Jessie  68.5 #4296 6:25PM
Two days and that's when they were both in elementary school. It's harder now that they will be in Middle school and High school. Can't miss thenπŸ˜” - tigntink  189.6 #2165 6:34PM

Disneyland unFORECAST (BETA) is here! Top MouseWaiters giving you the rundown of what's happening at the Disneyland Resort. The unFORECAST now has its own page on the web www.unFORECAST.com

unFORECAST for the month of May 2016
The last few weeks have been relatively quiet, but we will see crowds rise as we get to the end of May, especially toward the end of the month when Grad Nite begins. Looking back at MouseWait's Historical Crowd Index (available in our MagicPlan iOS Calendar), crowds averaged in the high 70s (approx 70% capacity), then the Crowd Index rose to the 80s toward the end of the month. Remember, we've seen larger crowds ever since the 60th Celebration began, so keep that in mind when looking at historical Crowd Index data. To get a real-time look at crowd levels, check the MouseWait App for Crowd Index averages and wait times. Have a great week! - Admin May 9, 2016 5:42PM

Did you know that almost everything in MouseWait can be found with a few taps in the MagicSearch bar? Did you know that we add things to MagicSearch weekly (i.e. requests from you--see below)? MagicSearch enables ONE-THUMB searching to help you find individual menu items, vegetarian or gluten free food, reviews, wait times (even restaurant wait times), exclusive insider Disneyland tips, annual pass holder, parking info, Star Wars Park info, celebrities, Disneyland news, Hidden Mickeys, crowd forecasts (unFORECAST), Photopass, birthdays, refurbishment info, and amazing content from almost a million pages of original content in the MouseWait Lounge. 

This is an  app. Thank you @@@Admin - LiveLaughLoveDisney  297.6 #0 2:46PM

MouseWait COUNTDOWN for iOS is here! Countdown the days to your next Disneyland or Disney World trip with our images OR your pics! Your Countdown also displays on Apple Watch and is beautiful on iPhone 6 screens. Secure the discounted launch price for a limited time.

So from the looks of it, there is not even one app made for those of us on android. You know there are millions of people who do not own iPhones. Its kind of rediculous these days not to offer an android version of apps. Would love to help this site grow by donating, but I see no point in that when there appears to be no intrest by the app builders here to support android. I mean how about atleast a partialy functional app so we can feel that theΒ android users are even wanted as a part of the mousewait community.Β I see lots of requests and sad posts about no android, but dont see any replys by the site to the fact that anyone is even working on it.I've checked back here every so offten to see if there is anything for android users, but never bothered joining until today.I just wanted to rant a little, and now I am done.Unfortunalty, at this point I think I am officaily giving up on mousewait.Β Thanks for reading Β and understanding my frustrations ( i hope ) and please everyone........Have a Disney-tastic day!Mark - molney14u  0.1 #105816 11:05AM
I have an iPhone and an old droid. I use the old droid for wait times when my iPhone can't connect and it works fine. There's so many droid phones to have  separate apps for but I hope android makers would start using the basic same code and security but I'm probably wishing on a star for that . I miss my droid but a lot of apps don't work the same.  - secretagentangel  6427.9 #20 8:10PM
I have the countdown and I love it! - tree320  0.6 #0 9:26AM
Doesn't everyone have a countdown clock on the top of one of their pinball machines?  Unfortunately mine is blank because our DL trip was weeks ago :( - awhittle  0.0 #127457 10:15AM
