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 #260 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 #1512 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 #1512 11:55PM

We have a deal with our kids, as long as they keep their grades up (A's - HpplyEvrAftr  223.0 #1625 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  1868.1 #79 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 #1512 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  1868.1 #79 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  138.0 #2839 11:54PM
Thank you, well said!!! :) - lynniesue42  232.4 #1512 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 #213 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 #1512 11:57PM
Exactly! - Gia  802.0 #213 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  218.9 #1677 11:55PM
Thanks for your input, much appreciated! :) glad to hear your daughter is doing well - lynniesue42  232.4 #1512 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  5033.2 #20 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  571.3 #334 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  5033.2 #20 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  571.3 #334 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 #1512 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  321.3 #743 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 #1512 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  1251.4 #126 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  161.1 #2475 12:04AM
There were many trips they took us out for actually. - Autoalice  161.1 #2475 12:05AM
2 Weeks. I'm a bad, bad Dad... - proudcanuck  478.6 #415 12:09AM
at our school...10 unexcused days gets you kicked out. you have to reapply - HandMeAChurroImmaFaint  5459.6 #17 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 #1960 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 #418 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  554.5 #345 8:13AM
2 weeks for my lil sister - theHatBoxGhost  10.0 #10174 8:15AM
1 week for his first WDW trip. - Lelundrial  571.3 #334 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 #491 8:30AM
I know, we've been fortunate. Knock on wood.... - DisneyDawn  419.2 #491 11:53AM

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  462.1 #438 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  275.2 #1046 8:47AM
as long she had A's we would take week here and there. - GoofyJoe  1906.6 #77 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 #4980 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 #28419 11:24AM
I plan to take Judah out for a year so we can justify the price of an ap. Jk. - LittleAprilShowers  562.7 #338 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 #199 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  278.3 #1012 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 #467 1:15PM

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 #4047 6:25PM

Luigi's Flying Tires closed through Dec 1
 

Were visiting during the diamond celebration.  I'm so excited because all of our favorite rides will be open! - Dsc1983  16.2 #7629 10:53PM
Awesome! Can't wait! - PrincessDaisy  322.2 #737 8:33AM
It really surprises me that they didn't have Peter Pan finished by the time the Diamond Celebration started. I'm going next week and will be sad to miss it.  - RetroMinnie  55.2 #4373 10:06PM
They definitely tried!! - NeddaSzy  46.5 #4673 6:57PM
I think it was delayed, originally supposed to be open earlier. - Sarafina  491.6 #400 12:13PM
Going to be in the park Dec. 29-Jan. 2. We've always been during the Summer and Spring so this will be our very first time there during the Holiday Season. What is the weather there like during Winter, what should Hubby and I be packing and what should I be packing for my two boys ages 8 and 9? I know the park is usually packed during the Holidays (from what I have read), would we still be able to park hop (we bought 5 days park hoppers) if we get our hands stamped? TIA. =) - MaryinVancouver888  5.3 #16517 4:17AM

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 week of July 27, 2015
Crowd levels have been rising since Disneyland's official birthday on July 17th. Looking back at MouseWait's Historical Crowd Index (available in our new MagicPlan iOS Calendar), this week last year averaged in the high 70s, which is light for summer crowds. When temperatures rise, the crowd does thin out a bit (especially Annual Passholders)--and this week should be a hot one with forecasts in the 90s through Sunday. We feel that the crowd level will be similar to last year (high 70s on the Crowd Index) and the heat will keep some away. To get a real-time look at crowd levels, check the MouseWait app for Crowd Index averages and wait times. - Admin Jul 28, 2015 9:36AM



We have always noticed that Saturdays are better than Sundays! We always come on the weekend and say we want to leave at dinner time on Sunday, but always leave by 11-12 because there are so many people. We love Saturday!! - 1Princess3Princes  487.8 #404 5:39PM
I agree. I think it has to do with most passes being blocked - PoohSizedGuy  18.6 #7112 11:53PM
Saturday's rule! One of the perks of a premium pass!  - snappy  381.2 #552 7:32AM
I love these posts!  I do have a question/request/suggestion...is there a way to only show the 3-4 most recent posts?  It's a lot to scroll through. @@Admin - TiggersAndTinks  156.0 #2552 5:08AM
I second this. The info is great to have, but it's too long.  - 1HitchhikingGhost  239.1 #1417 5:04PM
Yay to MouseWaiter kindness πŸ‘πŸ» - Dizkid  368.4 #578 11:40AM
summer surely has been very busy!  - MarshaMouse  4676.6 #22 12:18AM
