When you’re just starting out in a relationship, you tend to judge compatibility based on the factors that surround you. Does he like Mexican food? Will she go to all the Tool concerts with me? Are we late nights or early mornings? It’s hard to think much further than that. So what if you’re already in love and find out that one of her favorite vacation spots in the whole world sounds as exciting as going to the bank for a new partner?

For most of us Disney fans, the parks are in our blood and what we grew up with and never thought we’d have to compromise to visit in the future. love to travel.

Luckily my husband is very supportive of my dis-love. He’s not keen on spending too much time there, but he has no problem with me coming back often. Plus, I’ve been fortunate enough to have two of her children who have inherited the Disney gene and are now companions when I visit. But I find that in relationships like this, many people don’t have a significant (friendly) other person to designate as their travel companion. , how do you compromise?

Luckily, most Disney sites are located in big cities, so it’s not just about riding attractions all day. My first tip is to change the parks you want to go to.

There is a nature. There are two different ways to approach this part. Either enjoy each activity with the other members or save time and break up. During these two days you are free to enjoy your activities and spend the rest of the trip with mutually satisfying interests.

If your travel partner spends Disney time with you, try something different than what you usually do. Embark on new culinary experiences together, and try shows and attractions you’ve never been to before. In my experience, most of the partners who are dissatisfied with Disney’s plans do so because of the repetitive nature of the parks. You often do things you don’t want to do in peculiar ways. crazy i knowbut some people don’t like it.

I like to start with my perspective and then switch gears with my family’s perspective. Instead of looking for things to do when planning your Disney vacation, find a way to flip the script and get your hands on the magic of Disney while enjoying an exploratory adventure. Disney’s theme parks may have to turn their backs on the bigger travel picture, but they’ll still come forward if you can get there more often.
